Controlling the county’s crime rate Sheriff candidates talk about goals in EDC forum; Boydston, Vescovo face off again By Kevin M. Smith Clay County sheriff candidates sparred on crime prevention issues in a forum for the Clay County Economic Development Council on Aug. 20. Incumbent Sheriff Bob Boydston, D-Kansas City, pushed his child internet safety and illegal immigration campaigns. Meanwhile, former sheriff Paul Vescovo, R-Smithville, touted his experience and passion for the job and talked about proactive steps to prevent property and violent crimes.
Boydston admitted crime is up, especially property crimes like burglaries and violent crimes like murders. Last year, there was just one murder in the city of Gladstone, according to Boydston. So far this year there have been three murders in Gladstone, Boydston said. He said crime is “cyclical.” “It’s going to go up and down no matter what you do,” Boydston said. He said law enforcement’s reaction to crime trends, like illegal immigration, is important. Boydston said the sheriff’s department needs to persevere. “You just have to keep hitting the basics,” Boydston said, noting an 82 percent clearance rate on property crimes.
If OK’d by voters, court would appoint panel to write county constitution By Angie Anaya Borgedalen Paul Vescovo, former sheriff
Bob Boydston, incumbent sheriff
Ve s c ovo disagreed. “The national trend the past three years, crime is going down,” Vescovo said. He insisted that local law enforcement can have an impact on the crime rate. Vescovo proposed having a dedicated crime analyst track trends and find the root of the problems. He also pitched switching from the current 12-hour shifts for patrols to eight hour shifts with an overlapping, longer “power shift.”
The candidates agreed that 911 needs to be better funded, like through a mobile phone tax, and that Boydston’s initiative to consolidate 911 dispatch centers in the county is a good one.
“I realize that’s going to be a tough fight,” Vescovo said of getting a mobile tax for 911. “I know people hate taxes.” Sen. Luann Ridgeway, RSmithville, who is running for Clay County Eastern Commissioner, noted that such a tax has been put to a vote of the people at least twice statewide and failed.
Boydston said he believes illegal human trafficking could be occurring in Clay County, which he hopes to stifle with the new investigator hired specifically to
Just one day before they had to get the wording to the Clay County Election Board, county commissioners voted 2-1 to place a referendum on the Tuesday, Nov. 6, ballot asking voters for permission to take the first step in writing a new county constitution. Voting to put the issue to a vote were Eastern Commissioner Katee Porter and Western Commissioner Larry Larson. Presiding Commissioner Pam Mason voted no as she had promised last week when the issue surfaced. Mason called the move “sour grapes” by two lameduck commissioners. Both Porter and Larson are leaving the commission at the end of the year. “I don’t know why they’re doing this now,” Mason said. “Voters have already turned it down twice in the last 10 years.” Porter said this was the
perfect time to ask voters for another chance to reform county government because there is already an election and it will not cost one penny more to add this issue to the ballot. “The only people who call my request to place the constitutional question on the ballot ‘sour grapes’ are some of those who currently hold office,” Porter said. “They are afraid that if Clay County government is reformed they will lose their $60,000 plus a year jobs, plus benefits and retirement wherein they can do whatever they want without recourse.” Porter said in recent years, Clay County has had to force two auditors out of office for wrong doing and one turned out to be a felon. Porter was referring to former auditors Vic Hurlbert, Mason’s husband, and William Norris, who lied about his credentials and criminal record. CONSTITUTION/Page A3

Gladstone man shows off modified Hupmobile By Jack “Miles” Ventimiglia NPG Newspapers
Warrensburg — Lots of people do a double-take when passing the low-cut muscle car sitting like a panther ready to purr and pounce on the grass at Happy Days Dream Cars in Warrensburg. Owner Larry Moore of Gladstone sits nearby. He watches adults crouch up close, admiring the car inside and out. “It’s a 1936 Hupmobile. They were in business from 1909 to 1940, and then they went out of business,” Moore says during the show Saturday, Aug. 25. “It’s one of those rarities.” Restoration includes modifications, he says. “It has a hemi out of a 1955 De Soto. ... The body’s the same, but it’s been cut 6 inches.” Resizing the car improves the looks. “It was pretty ugly when it came out,” he says, but now the car looks sleek. “It’s a pack of cigarettes off the ground.” As people come and go, speaking of the Hupmobile, Moore says he enjoys the Warrensburg Wheels Car Show. “This is the first time I’ve been here and I like it. It’s a real nice show and it’s a good turnout,” he says.
CONSTITUTION: Outgoing Larson calls current form of government ‘archaic’ Continued from Page A1 “The county has been sued numerous times by employees because of unacceptable behavior by some of the officeholders. The current form of government does not allow the commission to correct the problems that occur in county offices that lead to liability and waste,” Porter said. “This isn’t sour grapes; this is an opportunity to let the voters decide what they want. How is that a bad thing?” Larson said county government could be improved if voters would demand accountability and efficiency by voting for the first step in the
reform process. If voters approve Proposition A by a simple majority, circuit court judges would appoint a 14-member, bipartisan panel within 60 days to write a county constitution. The constitution commission would have one year to complete the document before it went back to voters for approval. “This is an archaic form of government, dating back to the 1800s,” Larson said. “I bet the number of scandals would diminish greatly or disappear all together in Clay County if we had a professional form of government. I’m looking forward to the debate.”

PROP A The wording of Proposition A is as follows: Shall a commission be chosen by the seventh (7th) circuit court to frame a county constitution which shall be submitted to the voters of Clay County? If approved, the Circuit Judges of the Circuit Court shall, within 60 days of certification of the election, appoint a County Constitution Commission to frame a County Constitution. Said Commission shall consist of fourteen residents of Clay County and shall be equally divided between the two political parties casting the greater number of votes at the last preceding gubernatorial election. The County Constitution Commission shall frame a County Constitution and shall submit such Constitution to the Election Board of Clay County, Missouri, within one (1) year of their selection by the Circuit Court, for placement on the next available County election date.

Museum group hears about Interurban Railroad The Kansas City, Clay County, and St. Joseph Railroad (KCCC&SJ), an electric railway system also known as the Interurban, was the topic of the Clay County Museum and Historical Society’s August study group discussion. More than 30 interested Interurban enthusiasts, including the two most well-known historians on the subject, David Short and Ed Conrad, were present. Interesting facts about the Interurban relayed in the discussion included that the Interurban was the electric railway equivalent to the Titanic in its luxury and comfort. It was clean, quiet, dependable and reasonably priced. Each passenger car

The event is free, and all are welcome to attend. had a smoking compartment with leather seats and was heated in the winter. Constructed by the Wyandotte Construction Co., the Interurban ran from 1913 to 1933. The system consisted of a 52-mile line linking Kansas City to St. Joseph and a 27.7-mile line from Kansas City to Excelsior Springs. During its peak, 1913 to 1923, its earnings rose
annually from $198,000 to $455,877. Its revenue exceeded $1 million per year for five consecutive years. In 1923, more than 2,323,000 tickets were sold. The KCCC&SJ Interurban had relatively few accidents. It was a good employer and paid well. Its employees voted to unionize in 1918, but in 1919 voted the union out, preferring instead the owner-employee relationship they had previously. The Interurban never segregated its passengers. All who rode sat wherever a seat was available. To minimize contact with livestock, the rail line was fenced on each side along the entire route. Alarms were installed at all intersections. Travelling up to 80 miles per hour, the Interurban was
the fastest transportation in the area when paved roads were nonexistent and automobiles were few in number. With the paving of first Highway 10 (now Route H) in 1924, with more paved roads soon to follow, and increased ownership of automobiles, passenger service on the Interurban ended in 1933. People preferred driving their own vehicles. Short and Conrad answered many questions put to them by the study group. Short also told of the huge archival collection of Interurban records and memorabilia in his possession, and of his dream to have an Interurban museum. He owns the largest known collection of KCCC&SJ-related material, from blueprints to the bankruptcy inventory of the
entire system. He even owns two rail cars. Conrad, author of the book “Heartland Traction” about the interurban lines of Kansas City, told of his interest in trains beginning when he was a boy riding the trolleys and interurban lines of his hometown of Milwaukee. Conrad suggested that if anyone wants a present -day light rail experience across countryside such as the Interurban ran, to ride the Shiloh-Scott segment of the Metro Transit-St. Louis transportation system. Clay County Museum and Historical Society Study Group members contributed to the discussion recalling such facts as when the city of Glenaire was known as Interurban Heights, a suburban development that
was an outgrowth of the KCCC&SJ Interurban route. Members also noted that the route between Liberty and Excelsior Springs closely paralleled Highway H and its infrastructure can be seen on the land along the highway. On display for the study group to view was a 4-foot, 80-pound length of rail salvaged when the Interurban tracks in Liberty were removed in the 1980s. The Clay County Museum and Historical Society Study Group will next meet on Tuesday, Sept. 11, to discuss early post offices in Clay County. The event is free, and all are welcome to attend. Jana Becker leads the Clay County Museum and Historical Society discussion groups.
Learning to cope with fear in this journey called life Boulder, Colo., in the summertime is breathtaking. We took a mini-vacation to escape the cruel heat of Missouri and to give the kids an opportunity to see the mountains of Colorado. We all enjoyed it — well, not everyone. Gideon, our 8-year-old, was mad because he missed his friends. During the 10hour drive (yes, you heard me correctly), the entire 10hour drive, he sang a little ditty that goes something like this: “I hate Colora-ahdoh. I hate the mou-outa-ta-ins. They suck, suck, suck, suck. Oh yeah.” The “oh yeah” was just because
all good songs should have a big finish. Our middle child, Izabel, is our tender one. She was afraid of falling during our hike and scared of the lightening during the storm that followed. In every photo, her 9-year-old cheeks are tear-stained, but at least there are majestic mountains in the background. Mark, Elliot and I, however, loved the hiking, swimming, waterfalls, mountains, cool air — you name it. Physically, we were all standing in the same mountains, but mentally we were on much more peaceful ground than the

are. However, what if the unknown holds beautiful waterfalls of adventure and awesome mountains to appreciate? Will all our photos show magnificent terrain and tear-stained cheeks? Will the water in our eyes blur our ability to appreciate the beauty of our new chapter? Fear, above all else, is a thief; an insatiable thief. He won’t stop until he has all of our joy and potential. I am also familiar with the senior adults who are clinging to all that they have left behind or have lost. They sing their songs of discontent through
hours of adventure and beauty. I’m writing this for myself, as well. I get upset when I can’t watch “Wheel of Fortune” at 6:30 or if I can’t find my Spearmint Extra gum at the store. However, when I leave the store, there is a fantastic world waiting for me. When “Wheel of Fortune” isn’t on, there are other forms of entertainment vying for my attention. If I stop singing my grumbling tune and speak positively about my surroundings, I’m always surprised by the beauty around me. It’s not the same kind of fantastic, but a new fantastic is just
as nice. It is often true that a song sung in screeching notes of discontent drowns out our ears ability to hear the birds sing and children laugh around us. I know that not all trips are to beautiful geography. Some are to the doctor’s office, rehab, assisted living or in with an adult child. However, you always have the option to proceed without fear and sing a song of hope.

Classes have begun at schools soon all across the Northland, and drivers are urged to be ready for increased student and parent traffic on or near state roads, reminds the Northwest Region Coalition for Roadway Safety. Many schools and bus routes are located on or near state roads, and the coalition wants to ensure everyone arrives alive. Here are some “back-to-school” safe driving reminders: ■ Expect heavy traffic around schools, with cars dropping off students in the morning and picking them up in the afternoon. Parents behind the wheel may be distracted. ■ Expect students walking and riding bicycles to and from schools or waiting at school bus stops. Notice “School Bus Stop Ahead” signs and be prepared to slow down or stop. ■ Expect school buses starting and stopping and traveling slowly each morning and afternoon. Stop when a bus has its red warning lights flashing and stop sign extended. ■ Slow down where speed limits are reduced at a school, including where flashing lights are installed.

Parents should make sure students know and follow traffic safety rules. Here are a few tips: ■ Use sidewalks where available. If you must walk in the street, walk single file facing traffic and stay close to the edge of the road. ■ Cross streets only at intersections. Don’t dart out between cars. When crossing a street — in a crosswalk or at a corner — wait until all cars are stopped before stepping out. That means all cars in all lanes in both directions. ■ Walk, don’t run. Look both ways. Assume drivers cannot see you. ■ Don’t walk distracted. Focus on traffic. Avoid using cell phones, ear buds and hand-held games. ■ Obey signs and signals. ■ When getting off a school bus, look both ways before walking in front of the bus into the street in case an approaching car does not stop. “Don’t go back” if you forget something or drop something. ■ In bad weather, with wet or slick pavement, expect cars to take a longer distance to stop. ■ When it’s dark outside, make yourself visible. Wear light colors and reflective strips and use a flashlight.

D i r e c to r S t a n le y Kubrick’s 1987 Vietnamera war opus celebrates its silver anniversary in style, in packaging that incorporates a 44-page hardcover book with reflections and photos by actor Matthew Modine, who starred as Pvt. “Joker”; with an hour-long documentary about the late director; another featurette on the making of the movie; and, of course, a hi-def Blu-ray of the film itself, a harrowing, two-part saga about the process that turns young military recruits into trained killers. (And in case you’ve forgotten, yes, that’s Vincent D’Onofrio, who’d years later become the TV star of “Law and Order,” as Pvt. Leonard “Gomer Pyle” Lawrence.)
ning artist. Among the highlights are seven classic studio and live concert performances with his ’60s singing partner, Paul Simon (including “Bridge Over Troubled Water” and “Scarborough Fair”), every No. 1 hit of Garfunkel’s subsequent solo career (among them “All I Know,” “Breakaway,” “I Only Have Eyes For You,” “My Little Town” and “What A Wonderful World”), two brand-new 2012 recordings, and Garfunkel’s personal, handwritten booklet notes to accompany each track.

This awe-inspiring collection of photography represents a global perspective on waves (and the “swells” that produce them offshore) from oceans and inlets around the world — their different personalities and universal similarities, as well as fascinating information on how they’re formed on their treks from sea to shore. Like the Beach Boys sang, “Catch a wave and you’re sittin’ on top of the world.” Looking at these 144 photos, which transport you to wondrous vantage points above, alongside or even underneath some of nature’s most magnificent water works, you’d probably agree.

First Baptist Church 300 S. Bridge St. Smithville, MO 64089 The congregation of First Baptist Church of Smithville voted recently to call Rev. Stephanie B. Swanson as their pastor. Below is information on Stephanie and her family: Rev. Stephanie Swanson grew up in the Chicago area and attended William Jewell College, earning a Bachelor of Arts in Religion in 2005. For the last seven years she resided in North Carolina while she completed her Master of Divinity from Wake Forest University School of Divinity in 2008 and began her career in ministry. During that time, she served as the Minister of Congregational Life at Emerywood Baptist Church in High Point, North Carolina. Stephanie met her husband, Charles Smith, who is originally from Independence, Missouri, while they were attending William Jewell College. Charles also holds a Master of Divinity from Wake Forest University. Stephanie and Charles have one son, Finnegan (“Finn”) who recently turned one. Having started their family, they are returning to the Midwest as they raise their son and continue serving in the church. First Baptist Church will conduct a Pastor Installation Service on Sunday, September 2 at 9:30 AM, during the worship service. We cordially invite you to join with us in worship and other church activities.
