If you haven't been along 152 past the struggling (and under new ownership) Zona Rosa lately you probably haven't noticed that the latest segment of the Route 152 Trail is almost complete. This segment of the trail will go from Amity over towards I-29 and is almost 2 miles long.... Continue reading

In case you were wondering what the construction was along NW 64th Street east of I-29, the 30 year old narrow sidewalk is being replaced with an 8-10 foot wide trail which will remove the gap in the Southern Platte Pass Trail. When this work between I-29 and Strathbury at... Continue reading

I don't think the urban areas will report and swing the race to Claire. Here is where NBC has the race with Hawley up by 216,000 votes. Here's my pro-rated spreadsheet of the outstanding urban areas and if trends hold up she can't make up that deficit. I wish I... Continue reading

Once again the Platte County Board of Elections doesn't post a countywide ballot so I can't tell you who is on the ballot in the Southeastern North Central Tiddlywinks District. You need to follow their link to the SOS website to pull your ballot. Let's get right into it. I... Continue reading

I know some people are expecting some info on the ballot on Tuesday and I may get to it but if I don't, just vote for Kevin Corlew and vote no on everything but the bingo question because they're all bad ways to change statewide laws and the state constitution... Continue reading

Ladies and gentlemen in a sane world, Kevin Corlew would be cruising to re-election. A former North Kansas City school board member, a two term representative who's represented his "purple" district to the point where he's drawn primary challenges from the hard right, a LICENSED practicing attorney working for one...

In less than two months, our kids will know where they will be attending school in 2019. Have you been following along? I really haven't until now when I was trying to figure out what was going with the meeting tonight. Digging through the district page, I did find one... Continue reading

Buckle up and pay attention folks. There is going to be some homework at the end of this post. Looks like there is finally some development pressure at the interchange of I-435 and Route 45. It appears that there is some substantial rezoning being proposed in the fair city of... Continue reading

Well school has started which means no more swimming at the pool till after 10PM and so now maybe I'll have some time (and interest) to write some stuff. It's been a distracting summer with all the kids, a DIY disaster that I'm in the middle of, and family member... Continue reading

Tomorrow is election day people and 85% of you won't vote but those of that you that do, I strongly recommend you ignore all the mailers and media and vote for Tony Luetkemeyer for State Senate in the Republican primary. Tony lives in Platte County and since most of the... Continue reading

Everyone else enjoying summer? Well we are and I should have posted this earlier and I am sorry I didn't post this earlier but I've got a lot of things going on right now and it snuck up on me. It's Antioch Bible Baptist Church's annual free clothing give away.... Continue reading

I've been doing a lot more biking to work lately. Part of it is because I have a goal to do it once a week. Part of it is because I drive older, late model cars that sometimes need some preventative maintenance or repair. I dropped off the car in... Continue reading

I was a little surprised looking over the Park Hill School Board agenda for last night. The redistricting schedule is going to move sooner and faster than I thought it would. The criteria with which to evaluate the new maps was first released last night and the Board will approve... Continue reading

I've been told thanks to some donations from Kansas City Southern Railroad and JE Dunn Construction Company that this year's National Train Day celebration this Saturday May 19th is going to be bigger and better than all the others. In case you don't know how we celebrate National Train Day... Continue reading

Today I was just minding my own business driving along the newly widened Route 45 when I spotted where MoDOT decided to protect people in their cars with their seat belts and air bags by installing sharp metal guardrail which would be fine except the guardrail is right next to... Continue reading

One key thing about transportation improvements nowadays is that partnerships are the key to getting things done. The latest case in point are the improvements underway to Pleasant Valley Road between Antioch and North Brighton. The old windy farm road is getting a major makeover and realignment as shown in...

Just when I think I've been everywhere in Platte County, I realize I have so much to learn. Since yesterday was a cold day, I figured I'd "build character" with the older boys by wandering in the woods. I didn't feel like doing more exploring in Tiffany Springs Park and... Continue reading

One of the reasons why I started this blog was to archive and share history. It even has its own category of posts. It's a repository of stuff I stumble on or things I find interesting. Did you know there's an actual group of folks who take historical documentation very... Continue reading

While not as exciting as the saga of The Boat at Tiffany Springs there is some redevelopment of long vacant office space along the I-29 corridor underway. Back in the 1970's, someone built a pair of matching office buildings between NW 112th Street and Tiffany Springs Parkway. Those buildings of... Continue reading

Don't worry folks. The Kansas City Northern Railroad aka the Line Creek Train is not going anywhere. It just needed some TLC. I don't know if those of you that ride the train have noticed but the south bank of the East Fork of Line Creek had been eroding near... Continue reading
