We had a great turnout for the Planning and Zoning meeting last night. I wish we saw even a fraction of this sort of turnout for everything that impacts the city.

The real estate market in Carl Junction has been the driving factor in the City's ability to continue to decrease the property tax levy from 2000 through 2008 while at the same time spending on the order of 6 million dollars to build a new Police Department and City Court building then most recen...

I love Christmas. I was born on Christmas so I have a certain affinity for the holiday, at least I did until I got so close to 50. My wife and I love to decorate the house for Christmas. This year we have, at last count, 8 Christmas trees in the house. Ginger (my wife) has an Angel tree that she ...

I got a little irritated at the Carl Junction City Council meeting this week concerning this subject and I wanted to take a moment to explain myself.

We all know, or should by now, that fresh water is becoming an increasingly public issue and a worrisome issue at that. Water tables are dropping and in 20 years we'll possibly see more headlines about fresh water than oil spills in the Gulf. We have a regional coalition looking into this and I a...

For any of you that will be able to come to the planning meeting on Saturday morning, we've had to change locations. The rain has prevented contractors from getting all the sidewalks poured so we can't use the new building yet. Instead, we're going to use the court room at the Police Department S...

Tonight after a very short council meeting since we didn't have a quorum I was taken to task, a little bit and in a nice way, about my blog and was told I came across rather arrogant. If that was the perception then I offer my sincere apology as that is not my intent with these blogs. In fact all...
