“Jobs, jobs, jobs, which will equal more economic impact for the region,” Stephens added.“KCI has served the region well for 40 years but it is time for improvements,” says Stephens, and I agree.Those of us who live in Platte County but not within the city limits of Kansas City are simply spectators in this election.As stated here previously, I’m on board with this proposal.No one knows this better than Alicia Stephens, executive director of the Platte County Economic Development Council. Hotels are here due to KCI as well as the Overhaul Base,” Stephens told Landmark reporter Valerie Verkamp this week.
At any rate, I kept checking my calendar and my phone in a momentary state of panic, worried that I was supposed to be somewhere I wasn’t. Next week’s schedule looks like a potential crapstorm of governmental ridiculousness.
Let’s try to get through it and meet back here next week at this same place and time, shall we?

So there, Mother Nature, you have your marching orders. ******* Guys, have you ever put on a pair of jeans that when you sit down the jeans grab and assault you in the unfriendliest place to be grabbed? I’m guessing my voice sounds two octaves higher than normal. I think that’s one of the emotions members of the Platte County Commission are feeling after two bids came in from potential buyers of the county-owned golf course known as Shiloh Springs. By the middle of last week zero bids had come in, so the county had begun preparations for its next step of searching for a real estate broker to market the property.
When I get home tonight this pair is going in the trash. The golf course loses around 0,000 to 0,000 of taxpayer money each year, and the current county commission has made no secret of a desire to get the golf course off the county’s books.
