Equipment upgrades to improve streaming council meetings By Kathy Crawford
GOP gets out vote across county In primary election nearly twice as many Republicans voted as did Democrats By Angie Anaya Borgedalen If the voting trends exhibited in the primary election continue, Democrats could find themselves in trouble again this fall. All Democrats seeking re-election to Clay County offices and facing a Republican opponent in the November 2010 election were handed their walking papers by voters. Is a similar scenario in the works? While they were unable to break down the division between those requesting Republican and Democrat ballots, Clay County Election Board officials said it was easy to tell at a glance that more Republicans than Democrats voted Aug. 7 in all the races. “It looks like it was about 2-to-1 in some races,” said Patty Evans, Democrat director of elections. For example, at the top of the ticket, incumbent Democrat U.S. Sen. Claire McCaskill received 8,757 votes in Clay County, but 16,761 voters
voted for Republican senatorial candidates in official totals. McCaskill will now face Congressman Todd Akin in the November election. McCaskill is among the senators considered vulnerable and targeted for defeat. Although turnout was light, helping to bring out more conservative voters may have been the “right to pray in public places” constit utional amendment, which found overwhelming favor with local voters, 21,126 to 5,876 and won by large marg ins statewide. That issue is expected to be challenged in court. Evans said a total of 27,629 people voted out of 152,122 registered voters, an 18 percent turnout. She said voter registration for the November election was brisk. The deadline for registering is Wednesday, Oct. 10. “We’re getting a lot of people registered,” Evans said. “In the presidential election four years ago, we had a 72 percent turnout.” Although neither had an opponent PRIMARY/Page A3

Gladstone residents will now be able to view an upgraded broadcast on the Time Warner Government Access Channel 2. During an open study session held prior to the Gladstone City Council meeting Aug. 13, Public Information Coordinator Richard King gave a presentation about the city’s upgraded broadcast system. He said the city had the same equipment for more than 20 years — until
now. After visiting nearby cities, King and city staff bought the equipment and software needed to upgrade the broadcast system. “We budgeted $15,000 for the upgrade,” King said. “We’re well under that.” King said city staff is creating a more attractive format that will allow for the display of changing news and events, slides with photos and text, videos and emergency alerts. A scrolling bar will normally contain important phone numbers for viewers; how-
C I TY C OU N C I L A C T IO N S The Gladstone City Council approved the following resolutions during its Aug. 13 meeting: ■ RESOLUTION R-12-84: authorizing acceptance of work under contract with A.T. Switzer Painting Company for the Painting Outdoor Swimming Pool Project and authorizing final payment in the amount of $8,107.30. (The total revised contract amount was $81,073.) ■ RESOLUTION R-12-85:
accepting a temporary construction easement in conjunction with the Northeast 63rd Street Storm Improvements Project. ■ RESOLUTION R-12-86: accepting temporary construction easements in conjunction with the Northeast 73rd Terrace Bank Stabilization Project. ■ RESOLUTION R-12-87: ratifying and approving the sale of real property located at 7001 N. Cherry St.
ever, the information can be changed remotely in case of an emergency. “No longer will we have to be at city hall to make changes to the channel,” King wrote in a recent memo to City Manager Kirk Davis. King also spoke about new cameras and a mixer board, which are used for live streaming of city council meetings and open study sessions. He said the city has a large viewership. “(Live streaming) is just about as transparent government as you can get,” King said. The mixer board will be located at King’s desk where he can make adjustments for speakers with softer or louder voices and help maintain sound quality. The new cameras will allow the view on the city’s website to change position. The focus can be switched to whoever is speaking at the city council table, the podium or the staff table. In other business during the regular city council meeting, Davis said classes began Aug. 21 in the North Kansas City School District and reminded everyone to be careful about kids.

PRIMARY: Democrats expect better turnout for general election Continued from Page 1 in the primary, the two candidates for District 17 state Senate, Democrat Sandra Reeves and Republican Ryan Silvey, also showed a higher turnout for the GOP. Reeves, a former county collector and former state representative, received 7,145 votes to 10,858 votes for Silvey. In the Clay County sheriff’s race, Democrats racked up 9,107 votes among the three candidates running, and lone Republican Paul Vescovo received 14,522 votes. Vescovo, a former sheriff, and incumbent Sheriff Bob Boydston will face off in November. D e mo c rat County Auditor Sheila Ernzen — who has had quite a roller coaster ride in the office, being appointed twice but losing her election bid in 2010 — received 8,235 votes to 13,847 for the GOP candidates. Ernzen will face challenger Michael Till in November. Ernzen was among Democrats ousted from county offices two years in a GOP sweep. After Republican William Norris, who defeated Ernzen, was found to be a convicted felon and resigned, Ernzen was appointed to fill his unexpired term. Democrat county Treasurer Carol McCaslin received 8,484 votes compared to 14,416 for the two Republican candidates. McCaslin now faces Ted Graves in the general election. Eastern Commissioner Republican can-
didate Luann Ridgeway received 7,824 votes compared to 3,176 for Democrat Sherry Duffett. Neither had a primary opponent. Sandy Skaggs, Clay County Democrat campaign coordinator, said despite the primary numbers and what happened two years ago, the party is cautiously optimistic that they will get good candidates elected. “I think what happened two years ago in a mid-term election was a fluke, an anomaly. Voters were very angry,” Skaggs said. “It can get discouraging at times, but we’re keeping our nose to the grindstone and focused on getting our voters out,” Skaggs said. “We’ll see what happens, but we’re hoping everything goes well for us.” Skaggs said in the U.S. Senate race, particularly, she believes McCaskill will prevail despite the GOP’s efforts to unseat her. “She’s such a good campaigner. Claire is not just going to roll over,” Skaggs said. “Voters will have a clear choice between Claire and Akin. There’s a stark contrast between them.” Incumbent Gov. Jay Nixon is not expected to be in trouble. Nixon faces David Spence in November. In the governor’s race in Clay County, 9,489 Democrats voted and 15,400 Republicans voted.

News in Brief
Exchange students from Italy, Germany study at Oak Park Ayusa, a nonprofit promoting global learning and leadership through foreign exchange, study abroad and leadership programs for high school students, welcomes Beatrice Prandi and Laura Flagmeyer, two high school students from Italy and Germany, to the Gladstone-area community. Prandi and Flagmeyer will be living with the Bowman family and attending Oak Park High School for the 2012-2013 school years. The students are from the counties of Italy and Germany and have always wanted to travel to the United States. They like dance, volleyball, travel, and meeting new and interesting people. They will be living with the Bowmans, who are hosting an exchange student with Ayusa for the third time. Ayusa foreign exchange students are between the ages of 15 and 18 years old, come from more than 60 countries around the world, and are matched with local host families all across the U.S. Ayusa is still seeking host families for international high school students in the Northland and surrounding area for the 2012-2013
school years. Interested individuals should contact David E. Bowman or Dawn M. Bowman at 437-9259, or email email@example.com for more information.
10-week grief recovery support group offered There are more than 40 types of loss — from the death of a loved one to major financial changes — that produce the range of emotions known as grief. The Grief Recovery Method, offered by Crossroads Hospice, helps people address the pain of any loss and achieve healing. This comprehensive program starts Monday, Sept. 10. The session will be from 1 to 2:30 p.m. at Crossroads Hospice, located at 2900 NE 60th St., Suite 150, in Gladstone. Sessions will be every Monday afternoon for 10 weeks. Developed by the Grief Recovery Institute, this dynamic and accessible experience helps participants create a plan to learn how losses affect them and move toward healing through new actions, according to a press release. It provides a safe environment for participants to find that they are able to

McCaskill, Akin differ on farm bill
U.S. Sen. Claire McCaskill speaks out on the farm bill.

Claire McCaskill goes across the board in specific out of that, but waste that could be dealt JACK MILES/NPG Newspapers yeah — across the board with.” would keep farm funds our federal government.” and food stamps together in the farm bill versus U.S. Rep. Todd Akin’s call for separation. Democrat McCaskill and Republican Akin are opponents in the Nov. 6 general election for Senate. The Senate passed the farm bill with the usual food stamp and agriculture funding provisions. House Republicans so far have not let the bill reach the House floor. Akin campaign spokesman Ryan Hite said Akin has never voted for a farm bill. “He has not supported the farm bills because, in the past, they’ve been 60 and 70 percent food stamp benefit programs, rather than ag issues. And this year it’s actually 80 percent food stamp benefit programs in the bill,” Hite said. “What the congressman would like to see is really a fundamental shift in how we operate in Congress. He would like to see the farm and ag issues Over the past year, 99% of your wireless calls on AT&T have stayed connected. come out on their own While that’s great news, we’re not done yet. In fact, we’ll never stop striving face.” Earlier this month at to give you the most reliable network possible. Flick Seed Co. in Kingsville, McCaskill said separating the farm bill would hurt the food stamp and farm programs. “We’d have a hard time getting it through the House,” she told NPG, because urban congressmen have little reason to vote for farm supports, and some rural members might reject food stamps. “The better thing to do is for us to continue to do what we (in the Senate) did in this farm bill — we cut food stamps, we reduced the deficit by $23 billion, and still provided that stability and predictability and crop insurance and shallow loss program that farmers need to keep our food prices stable.” McCaskill said the House, like the Senate, should cooperate to pass the farm bill. Sen. Roy Blunt, R-Missouri, joined McCaskill in voting for the bill. “It’s fascinating to me that we would have bipartisan support from Republicans and Democrats in the Senate, and yet the Republicans are blocking this bill in the House,” McCaskill said. If not for a House rule that states “the majority of the Republican majority” must be in favor to let a bill reach the floor for a vote, farmers would have a farm bill, McCaskill said. “If Speaker (John) Boehner would put the Senate bill on the floor, it would pass. … We’d have a farm bill before the end of September, we’d have retroactive help to our livestock producers, and we’d have certainty for 2013 in terms of what our producers can plan for next year. I’m hoping we’ll get that done in September.” Akin has talked about ending federal involvement in providing school lunches, opposes the minimum wage and backs Medicare vouchers. Reached by phone, Hite said he could not say where Akin stands on continued support for food stamps. “One of the biggest things that he does talk about frequently (is) for getting consistency and abiding by the law in our social benefit programs, and some of the things like the … WIC program. ...
