Questions That Have Been Asked by the Excelsior Community
The Week of September 17th

 

• What are the details on the car show that’s at the end of the month?

The American Legion Post 236 Car & Bike Show will be September 29, 2018. The week of the event is from Sept 25-Sept 29. The Atlas downtown will be collecting donations at the bar for veterans.

• What is going in the strip mall near McDonald’s? 

On the corner of the strip mall behind Arby’s and Applebee’s will be The Mug’s new location. The Mug will be moving from the downtown on Broadway out to the west side, with a drive-thru window, making it easy to get your coffee and treats before leaving town each morning!

 

 

• When is the dog park going to open? 

Space for the Dog Park near Century Park is being prepared. The park will be ready sometime in the Spring.

• When does the newer library re-open? 

There is no set timeframe for when the library will be open, but they’re shooting for mid-October. In the meantime, they will remain in the Hall of Waters on the second floor in the Council Chambers.

• What is going in the old Sears building? 

40290461_1335408016595766_641694785769308160_n

Terri Ritchie has announced that Thunderbird Electric Supply will be coming in. They will have a large lighting showroom and electrical counter. They will stock anything you would need for electrical material, including, but not limited to, LED lamps, switches, receptacles, etc. as well as tools. They will have a Grand Opening!! Stay tuned!!

• What is going in Excelsior Trade Fair’s building?

Half of the Trade Fair’s building will go to vendor booth space similar to Excelsior Trade Fair, however, the other half will be a $5 store, where damaged freight and returned items (from Amazon) will be stored in bins and shoppers dig around to find items that they want. The price for items drops each day thereafter. There is another store like this in Belton.

• When will the sink hole get fixed by O’Reilly’s?

Construction on the sink hole across from O’Reilly’s has begun.

• Where can I find an Excelsior Springs postcard?

There are local postcards sold at the Visitor’s Center in the Hall of Waters and at Main Spring Art Gallery downtown on the corner of Main and Spring Streets.

• When does the Trolley run?

Often you can find the Trolley running in our local festivals and on 2nd Weekends in the downtown. You can also rent the trolley for fun events like birthdays, family/class reunions, or parades. There are also a number of events throughout the year that you can buy a ticket for the trolley. There are also monthly wine tours that are very popular. For more information on the Chamber Trolley, click here to go to their Facebook page.

• What’s the best way for citizens to put an issue before the City Council if they’re unable to attend council meetings?

Most effective would be to reach out to council members in a time that works for you. You can also reach out to our City Manager Molly McGovern and she will bring your issue to the council. Our local council members:

Mayor Brad Eales
Mayor Pro Tem Sharon Powell
Former Mayor Ambrose Buckman
Councilwoman Sonya Morgan
Councilman Brent McElwee

OLIVER AND STANLEY pose for their mom Deborah Pack. the two brothers worked together from the very beginning. DEBORAH PACK

Stanley helps others accept, embrace differences

August 24, 2018—An English Bull Dog and his parents hope to use his life to inspire acceptance.

Deborah Pack taught kindergarten and pre-K for 18 years. During her time as a teacher, she said she noticed a disturbing trend among her students.

“Even at 4-years-old, they started bullying each other,” she said. “They started zeroing in on each other’s differences and instead of embracing them, they were judging them.”

Click here to read the remainder of the story in the Excelsior Springs Standard.

Sunday

🎶 The long and winding road, that leads, to your door

Will never disappear, I’ve seen that road before

It always leads me here, lead me to your door 🎶

Sleepy Sunday

Pancakes are a staple on weekends in the Cole household

Caught a cat while taking a mid-morning nap 💤

S. Jason worked in the yard while I worked on prepping social media for the week and doing grant research.

Some magic caught my eye 💛

S. Jason pointed out this fun praying mantis!

S. Jason got us peaches at the store. He knows I love peaches.

A Day in the Life – Monday

🎶 The buzzard took the monkey for a ride in the air

The monkey thought that ev’rything was on the square

The buzzard tried to throw the monkey off his back

The monkey grabbed his neck and said, “Now, listen, Jack

Straighten up and fly right, straighten up and fly right

Straighten up and fly right, cool down papa, don’t you blow your top 🎶

This morning’s assembly was dark from the rain outside.

My first meeting was with GG Owens at JE Dunn Construction downtown.

Ms GG has helped thousands of people obtain employment in Kansas City. She’s currently serving our Job Corps Center as the Chair for the Workforce Development Council.

Had the pleasure of meeting these folks from England. They are working with Ms GG on a project supporting a school in Nigeria. They had pictures giving the children pencils to write with and working with children who were blind.

You never know what God has in store for you each day.

Since I was three blocks from my brother’s business and had fifteen minutes, I swung by to say hi. I worked for Joe once for a year and I’m still not exactly sure what he does.

This afternoon I had a meeting at the Clay County Courthouse presenting the MU Extension budget to the commissioners. As the appointed representative for Excelsior Springs, I’m honored to also be serving as the council’s Chair.

My friend Vern told me that the artist of this mural waited to paint all the faces on the characters. He then went around the county taking pictures of people and then drew their likeness into the mural to finish the characters. Isn’t that cool? I think that’s way fun!

It rained off and on all day. We have needed it. Loving these white blossoms outside my office window.

Ready to roll!

Proud that Mackenzie has really been dedicated to roller derby. It’s a challenge for her, but she’s up to it!

Winding down

This is a big week for me. Pray I get through Wednesday, please!
