District 15 Truth windows give glimpse of past candidates focus on jobs, economy By Amy Neal Job creation and economic development is at the forefront of both candidates’ minds in Missouri House District 15. Republican Kevin Corlew and Democrat Jon Carpenter each acknowledge that Kansas has won recent battles on those fronts, and they want to turn that around. “Missouri is definitely losing the border war in terms of jobs … and that hurts our local economy,” Carpenter said. Both also have said the state and its legislators will need to play a role to help make redevelopment and revitalization possible. Corlew cited the need for enabling legislation to facilitate partnerships such as the one between North Kansas City Schools and the city of Gladstone to build a natatorium as part of the Gladstone Community Center. If economic growth increases across Missouri, the state will have more money to invest in infrastructure that can help improve commerce and foster more economic growth, Corlew said. “The big thing we need to do is impress upon the rest of the state the unique challenges for us in the Kansas City area as a state-border area,” Corlew said of the challenge awaiting the District 15 representative elected on Nov. 6. The Republican is supportive of a push for a broad-base tax relief measure that would reduce the tax rate on all business
Amy Heithoff and daughter Sophia Dominguez-Heithoff examine layers of wallpaper through a truth window in the living room. “It’s cool how you can see all the transformation, how they built onto it,” Dominguez-Heithoff said, referring to the original log cabin at the core of the two-story home. The ground floor has been renovated with plan plans to open as a museum in April. At right, an axe head, hog scraper and powder horn found on site during the renovation work are displayed in the parlor. Read the story on Page A2. Amy Neal/Gladstone Dispatch photos

Modern restroom facilities await visitors to the Atkins-Johnson Farm. “We want to recreate historic farm life but not to the extent of an outdoor outhouse,” said Erica White, museum manager. A paved path connecting the parking lot, restrooms and farmhouse also has been added.
Friends celebrate completion of interior renovations By Amy Neal With the completion of interior renovations, Gladstone is one step closer to opening the Atkins-Johnson Farm Museum to the public. An open house showcasing the improvements at the more than 180-year-old farmhouse was held Friday, Oct. 19, for Friends of the Atkins-Johnson Farm members and city officials. “This is our fall party to celebrate that we are done inside and can finally work on the fun part,” said museum manager Erica White. White said the property is scheduled to start offering public tours in early April. Until then, she will be working to “identify the vision for the house and narrowing down the story we want to tell.” Lessons about the history of farm life in Missouri will be central to the site’s mission. It also will play host to community events, White said. Mayor Carol Suter said the farm highlighted the city’s ongoing commitment to making arts and culture as a main feature of Gladstone. Since the city purchased
the farmhouse and two acres at the site in 2005, City Manager Kirk Davis said the city had obtained 20 more adjacent acres, and renovated fireplaces, exterior walls, the roof and now the interior. The property is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Davis and White both said there was more work on the farm wish list that they hoped would be completed in the future such as turning a barn into an education center. There are plans to complete a trail connecting the farm with the nearby Big Shoal Cemetery with a restored prairie along the way, Davis said. The two sites make up the Big Shoal Heritage District. Improvements to Pleasant Valley Road also should improve accessibility to the farm, which was one of the six original homesteads in Clay County, Davis said. “The edge of the U.S. was Platte Purchase Road when the house was built,” Davis said. The farmhouse also has the distinction of being the longest continually inhabited residence in the county — and it was built to last
Shards from dishes and other items found on the Atkins-Johnson Farm site are on display. according to one of the preservation experts involved with the recent restoration “These houses were built using materials that were so solid,” said Elizabeth Rosin of Rosin Preservation in Kansas City. “It’s not going anywhere now that it’s been reinforced.” Friends member Nancy Lux described the renovations as “fantastic.” “All of a sudden it’s just come to life, and that’s what we wanted,” said the longtime Gladstone resident. Rosin agreed.
Musicians from the Oak Park High School Orchestra play in the dining room during an open house Friday, Oct. 19. The original mantle for the dining room fireplace disappeared from the home in the recent past, said Erica White, museum manger. A replacement is being hand carved.
The Real Story of the “New 5th” District In a dirty political trick, Emanuel Cleaver made a deal with party bosses to cut Jacob Turk’s home of 30 years out of the new 5th Congressional District. You see, Turk almost unseated Emanuel Cleaver in 2010.
Richmond Gladstone Kansas City
In doing so, the voice in Congress of the citizens of Ray, Lafayette, and Saline Counties was sacriﬁced in a self-serving political deal by Cleaver. If you are tired of self-serving politicians, then it is time to send Emanuel Cleaver home.

Rudi of the Friends group thanked all of the people who have volunteered their time so far but said fundraising and volunteers continued to be two big needs as the museum prepares to open. “We need you often, and we need you many, many
hours,” she said. To volunteer or learn more about the farm, visit www. atkinsjohnsonfarm.com.

One of five truth windows is located in a corner just inside the front door. It exposes a foundation of limestone and wooden support beams. White said she was surprised to find out how clean the space underneath the house was, saying it was built to be weather-tight. “They had a knowledge of working with nature we don’t have anymore,” she said of the home’s builders. Other truth windows show the original ceiling in the original log cabin, which became the living room; hand-hewn white oak logs used to construct the cabin walls; layers of wall paper used to decorate over the years; and the inner structure of an archway connecting the living and dining rooms.

NKC worker admits Library system to fraud recognized scheme
News in Brief
Kansas woman embezzles $561,000 from employer A Leavenworth, Kan., woman pleaded guilty in federal court Oct. 10 to a bank fraud scheme in which she embezzled more than $561,000 from her North Kansas City employer. Paula A. Cathey, 53, waived her right to a grand jury and pleaded guilty before U.S. District Judge Dean Whipple to federal information that charges her with 15 counts of bank fraud, according to a press release. Cathey was employed from Sept. 7, 1997, through March 31, 2011, as the controller for Mega Industries Corp., a heavy highway and general contractor construction company in North Kansas City with approximately 25 employees. Cathey admitted that she embezzled approximately $561,552 as a result of her fraud scheme. Cathey obtained checks from the office of a subordinate, wrote unauthorized checks to herself and, without the knowledge or consent of the company presidents, forged their signatures on the checks. Cathey deposited the checks in her personal bank account and used the money largely for gambling. In order to conceal her fraud, Cathey manipulated the company’s ledgers and created false accounting entries. Cathey was the first person to get the mail; when monthly bank statements came in the mail, she removed them and destroyed most of them. Under federal statutes, Cathey is subject to a sentence of up to 30 years in federal prison without parole, plus a fine of up to $1 million and an order of restitution, on each of the 15 counts. A sentencing hearing will be scheduled after the completion of a presentence investigation by the U.S. Probation Office. This case is being prosecuted by Senior Litigation Counsel Linda Parker Marshall. It was investigated by the FBI.
DEADLINE IS 4 P.M. TUESDAY.

For the first time, the Mid-Continent Public Library has been awarded the Certificate for Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting from the Government Finance Officers Association. The award recognizes entities that prepare comprehensive annual financial reports and meet GFOA standards of achievement. “This was the first time we really tried to do this,” said Steve Potter, Mid-Continent director of libraries. “It’s a little bit of extra effort but I think it makes our financial reporting clearer.” Potter detailed the award Oct. 15 during the library system’s annual report to the Clay County Commission. In the past year, Mid-Continent’s 30 branches saw 4.3 million visitors and loaned 9.3 million items, including 210,000 digital ebook downloads. Mid-Continent also expanded its free online resources, adding music downloads and ed2go, a database of instructor-led courses and tutorials. By calculations of the Mid-Continent staff, the library system provided $4 of service for every $1 provided by taxpayers. In 2013, Mid-Continent is anticipating the opening of the Woodneath Branch near Shoal Creek and an expanded presence in Clay County. — Ryne Dittmer
Northland car dealer celebrates 65 years
The second annual Bill Cross 5K Walk/Run for BackSnacks took place Oct. 14 at Zona Rosa. Despite some rain, the race was able to get started at 8 a.m. Nearly 200 walkers and runners attended, with 359 people registered overall. The oldest participant was Ed Burnham, 93. The BackSnack is a weekend of shelf-stable food for one child. In two years, the group, the Northland Childhood Hunger Initiative, has grown the Harvesters program from 1,000 to 2,800 weekly backpacks with food for schoolchildren in Clay and Platte counties.
Business Notes Cassie McClure, a Gladstone resident and independent consultant with Tastefully Simple, is now a team leader with the national direct seller of easy-to-prepare foods. McClure earned the promotion through sales achievements and by adding new consultants to the team. Brad Gibson, Lewis Hybrids district sales manager from Lathrop, recently donated $780, to help pay for team jerseys along with additional costs for Freebird Soccer teams in the Northland.
“Monsanto sees a lot of value in helping the communities and activities of importance to our employees and farmers,” Gibson said. “This donation will help pay for supplies that the girls need and demonstrate our support, so it’s a win-win situation for all of us. I’m glad we could help them out.” Freebird Soccer consists of eight teams of girls who are 5 to 10 years old from the Gladstone, Liberty, North Kansas City and Smithville areas. Eightyone girls will be participating in the 2012-2013 season. Home games are
played at Western Missouri Soccer League Complex in Kansas City North. The soccer club holds fundraisers and receives community donations, which provide equipment for the teams and keep tournament fees down. The club hosted its first Freebird Soccer Mice Derby fundraiser on Sept. 15 at St. Patrick Church in Kansas City. All funds went toward purchasing goals for the practice field and upcoming tournament costs. For more information on Freebird Soccer, visit www. freebirdsoccer.com.

Classic car enthusiasts were drawn in by the offering of free barbecue, ice cream, music and a chance to win a 1992 Chevy Corvette, as well as being able to relive their past through rows of automotive history. The east end lot at Westfall-O’Dell was filled with 174 entries — cars, trucks, muscle cars and street rods in various stages of refurbishing.

Volunteers tackle housing repairs If it were not for volunteers willing to help, Rebuilding Together Clay County would not have so many accomplishments to share with the community. “Nothing happens without volunteers. They are wonderful,” said Clay McQuerry, executive director of the nonprofit whose goal is to improve sub-standard homes across the county. The work is done at no cost to low-income homeowners. While scores of volunteers gather annually on the first Saturday in October and then fan out in teams to repair and improve homes throughout the county, the organization does respond at other times of the year to make emergency repairs if needed. The organization’s Safe at Home program, for example, installs grab bars, handrails and ramps for the elderly or handicapped. “If it’s something urgent, they don’t have to wait until October,” McQuerry said. McQuerry said most of the volunteers come from the Liberty area, and he would
like to recruit more volunteers from other areas, especially Excelsior Springs and Kansas City North, where requests for help are rising. McQuerry said they particularly need professional contractors in the building trades to volunteer their expertise. He said Rebuilding Together would also like to help more veterans improve their homes, but many times those who need help will not apply. For help or to volunteer, call 781-8985 or go to www. rebuildingtogetherclaycounty.org for more information. McQuerry answered the following questions about this year’s rebuilding day. Q: How many projects did volunteers do this year? A: 24 homes plus two projects at Hillcrest Transitional Housing Q: What communities were involved? A: We served families from Liberty, Kansas City North, North Kansas City, Gladstone, Excelsior Springs, Claycomo and Pleasant Valley. Q: How many total proj-

Corlew has traits needed by legislator Kevin Corlew will be a great voice in Jefferson City as our elected state representative. As a former city councilman and mayor in Gladstone, I have had the pleasure of working with him in a variety of civic organizations, and I have observed his high level of leadership in many of them. In addition, I know him to be a stable family man with an excellent work experience, to be friendly and to have an even disposition. These characteristics are all positive attributes that will serve him well in his interactions with people and organizations across Missouri to accomplish things for our district. He is a good man. Wayne Beer, former City Council member and mayor Gladstone
Avoid surprises on the ballot Nov. 6 Some Gladstone voters may get a surprise when they go to vote. I did. When I went to vote absentee, the ballot had Congressional District 5 candidates on it. I found out later that we are now in District 5, not District 6 — Cleaver/Turk as options, not Sam Graves as I expected. I thought I was reasonably informed, but guess not. Hope that other Gladstone voters will be more informed. Barry Darlington, Gladstone

Reeves, Silvey face off on Nov. 6 Open 17th Senatorial District seat draws
well-known Northland competitors to political fray By Angie Anaya Borgedalen In a spirited contest, Democrat Sandra Reeves, a former Clay County collector and former state legislator, is running against Republican state Rep. Ryan Silvey for the 17th District Senate seat now held by term-limited Sen. Luann Ridgeway. Silvey said he believes it is important to elect a senator from the party in the majority. Reeves said she believes the Legislature works best when it is more balanced between the two parties. “I think the most important thing for the Northland is to have a senator who is poised to have the most influence,” Silvey said. “Since the Senate is firmly Republican, electing a Democrat would put the Northland in a weak position.” Both the Senate and House are now controlled by Republicans, but Gov. Jay Nixon, a Democrat, is in the position of vetoing legislation he disagrees with.
“In my previous experience as a Missouri state legislator, I know having a balance of the two parties enables more civil discourse and compromise,” Reeves said. “These elements produce good public policy based more on serving the needs of the largest number of Missourians rather than the needs of special interests and political ideology.” Ryan said he is proud to be able to work with and for diverse constituencies. “As the only candidate endorsed by both the Missouri Chamber of Commerce and the AFL-CIO, I believe I have a track record of bringing people together to solve the tough problems, particularly on jobs, and not simply be a ‘seat filler’ who waves a party banner,” Silvey said. Reeves said she has a proven track record as a public official of being able to work with those with different points of view and across party lines. “I have been consistently elected to serve the citizens of Clay County as a school board member,
state legislator and county collector. In each of these positions I always made myself available to the constituents to listen to their concerns, have worked with members of both parties to solve problems and have earned the respect and trust of the constituents,” Reeves said. Neither candidate supports pushing for a rightto-work law; both support reviewing tax credit programs; and both support adequate funding for education. Creating jobs is a top priority for both candidates. “I believe there are much more pressing issues facing Missouri and do not believe that right-to-work is the cure-all that some people think it is,” Silvey said. “I have not been supportive of pushing that legislation. I believe there are more immediate and effective ways to create jobs.” Craig Porter, chairman of the Clay County Republican Central Committee, said right-to-work is a top priority for the committee. “We adopted five top priorities we’d like to see
passed, and right-to-work is one of them,” Porter said. “Most Republicans think it’s important and it could save millions of dollars.” As a former commissioner, Porter said the county had difficulty attracting competitive bids from construction companies because Missouri is surrounded by right-to-work states. Right-to-work laws ban the requirement for workers to pay union dues as a condition of their employment and do not require schools, counties and cities to pay prevailing wages on construction projects. Reeves said passing rightto-work legislation is not one of her priorities. “No, at a time when the state is facing a serious revenue shortage and high unemployment numbers, the legislature needs to focus on taking a balanced approach to increasing revenue, creating jobs, and supporting our families and seniors,” Reeves said. “Focusing on these should be our priority, not attacking the workers and their organizations.”
McCaskill, Akin trade jabs in final debate By Eli Yokley Missouri News Horizon
CLAYTON, Mo. — U.S. Sen. Claire McCaskill was on the offensive last Thursday night, Oct. 18, during her final debate with her Republican rival, Todd Akin. At Clay ton High School, less than three weeks from election day, McCaskill took issue with dozens of Akin’s previous votes — some of dealing with raising his own pay, others dealing with opposing federal funds for school lunches — all as she attempts to define Akin to Missouri voters as too “extreme.” “ Mo de r ate ve r s e s extreme,” McCaskill said, “I think there’s a very big choice for Missourians to make.” Akin, known during the primary (and even in his prior debate with McCaskill) for delving into the details of a policy question, focused instead on a handful of points in an attempt to tie McCaskill directly to government spending and President Obama, largely unpopular among Missouri voters. “I believe she’s support-
ed $6.9 trillion worth of deficit spending, and she calls herself a moderate,” Akin said. “How much do you have to spend in deficit spending to become a liberal?” To counter, McCaskill said she would support parts of the Simpson-Bowles plan to reduce the national deficit, and touted her efforts working with Republicans — a key pillar of her campaign message — on opposing earmarks and supporting a cap on federal spending. “I’m willing to look at pieces of Simpson-Bowles,” she said. “We’re going to get there through good, moderate, bipartisan work.” McCaskill, who, following Akin’s inflammatory comments about “legitimate rape,” has focused increasingly on women’s issues in her campaign, also touted her campaign’s research claiming
Akin’s official office pays women 23 percent less than his male staff. After the debate, reporters asked Akin’s senior campaign adviser Rick Tyler about the issue. He said reporters should ask the official office spokesman for comment, but that spokesman, who was standing off to the side, immediately left when Tyler ended his discussion with reporters. Akin, who spoke last during closing statements, took that opportunity to criticize McCaskill for her husband’s business dealings with companies that dealt with $39 million in federal housing subsidies. McCaskill, speaking with reporters, downplayed his assertion as a “cheap shot.”
The two faced off in a debate earlier this year in Columbia during a forum hosted by the Missouri Press Association. That time, the two operated in a different political environment in which Akin still had the opportunity to exit the race, which much of his party had asked him to do. This time, McCaskill’s jabs were sharper, and Akin, who answered much more cautiously, acted under the advice of new campaign consultants his campaign has hired in recent weeks. Following their debate, Akin and McCaskill were back on the campaign trail in southwest Missouri over the weekend.

Prop A perspectives Clay County officials, candidates divided on charter issue on ballot By Ryne Dittmer In less than two weeks, Clay County residents will vote to decide whether a special commission will be created to draft a new county constitution. If approved, Proposition A would be the county’s first of two steps in moving toward charter. Charter counties have the ability to operate under a self-determined form of government instead of the structure outlined by the Missouri constitution. Once completed, the constitution would be put before voters for final approval. The issue was placed on the ballot by a 2-1 vote of the County Commission in August. Since then, charter has become a dividing topic among county officials.
In support of charter
Current Clay County Eastern Commissioner Katee Porter, who voted with Western Commissioner Larry Lawson to place Proposition A on the ballot, has been one of the measure’s biggest supporters. “I have been around county politics on a very inside basis for 12 years. I have seen how our current form of government doesn’t work,” Porter said. “The County Commission has very little power other than setting the budget. Officeholders can do whatever they want.” Porter cited William Norris as an example of the county’s inability to hold officials accountable. Norris was elected as county auditor in 2011 despite making unverifiable claims about his credentials during the campaign. He was later charged with providing false information to the election board when he filed his candidacy. If charter was approved, Porter believes the appropriate measures could be put in place to assure qualified individuals fill county positions. “Charter could require background checks and make sure officials have years of experience and proper qualifications,” Porter said. “If they didn’t, the commission could fire them and hire someone who would represent the county and do a good job.” For Porter, a new constitution could fix a system she thinks does not serve the residents of Clay County. “You get to a point that
it’s so broken it can’t be fixed,” Porter said. “Right now it’s not fixable any other way than to change the government.”
Many of those against charter take issue with the way the measure to write a new constitution was placed on the ballot. “I do not support this because it was not brought to us by the citizens we were elected to serve,” Presiding Commissioner Pam Mason said. “A measure of this nature should be discussed in a public meeting over the period of several meetings to ensure it has been well thought out. This was recently placed on the agenda and voted on within two weeks.” Mason also added the current form of government keeps officials accessible to the public and operation costs lower than counties with charter. Like Mason, Eastern District candidate Luann Ridgeway thinks that residents should prompt the possibility of such a change. “This initiative has never risen by a group of citizens. It has always been politicians that decide this is the answer for their problems,” Ridgeway said. “If we’re going to make a significant change along those lines, it needs to come from the people, not because elected officials decided.” Western District candidate Gene Owen said his views on the issue changed after seeing struggles in Jackson County under charter. Owen also stated his support of the current structure for government in the county. “The argument for charter is we need to update the county constitution, but now if you want to change something, you need to get a statute passed by the state,” he said. “For me that’s pretty good checks and balances.”
“I really don’t have a ‘yay’ or ‘nay’ on that. It depends on the document that is drawn up,” Sherry Duffett, Eastern Commissioner candidate said. Duffett said she was unsure whether a new constitution would address the needs of the county but would support the issue if it was approved by county residents. “If the people want to look at it, then let’s look at it,” she said. “But it has to be a good document.”

Non-partisan court plan faces changes
By Christine Roto Missouri Digital News
On Nov. 6, Missouri voters will have the option to amend the way Missouri judges are selected. Missouri Constitutional Amendment 3 is the culmination of a multi-year effort by a St. Louis County lawmaker to increase the accountability of the governor on appointees in the judicialÂ nominating commission. TheÂ Missouri Non-Partisan Court PlanÂ has been in place for more than 70 years as a way to eliminate partisanship in the selection of judges in the state. The intent of the plan isÂ to haveÂ judges selected based on merit instead of political affiliation.
The plan is in charge ofÂ selecting judges to the Missouri Supreme Court and Appeals Court.Â It initially applied to courts in St. Louis City and Jackson City. Greene, St. Louis, Clay and Platte counties have also adopted similar variations of the plan. The current system removes appellate-level judges from having to seek election in partisan elections. StateÂ appeals judges are selected from a panel of nominees comprised of threeÂ governor appointees, as well as three lawyers selected by the MissouriÂ Bar AssociationÂ and the chief justice of the Supreme Court. â€œThe original Constitution had the proper checks, and currently there is no check on the judicial branch of gov-
AMENDMENT 3 BALLOT LANGUAGE Shall the Missouri Constitution be amended to change the current nonpartisan selection of supreme court and court of appeals judges to a process that gives the governor increased authority to: â€˘ appoint a majority of the commission that selects these court nominees; and â€˘ appoint all lawyers to the commission by removing the requirement that the governorâ€™s appointees be nonlawyers? There are no estimated costs or savings expected if this proposal is approved by voters. ernment as far as how we choose judges to the highest court,â€? said Sen. Jim Lembke, R-St. Louis County. â€œThe Missouri Plan is currently controlled by one special interest group: the trial attorneys.â€? L embke sponsored the amendment when it
was before the General Assembly. The amendment eliminates the chief justice from the panel and allows the governor four appointees to the com m issionÂ i nstead ofÂ three,Â which would makeÂ his appointees the majority.
Lembke said the â€œmodestâ€? change would allow the people of Missouri to hold the governor accountable for the peopleÂ the governorÂ puts on that commission.Â LembkeÂ said this will restore a check between the executive branch of government and the judicial branch. Lynn Whaley Vogel, the president of the Missouri Bar, said the governor would essentially control the court through power of all the controlling votes in the commission. â€œBefore you change the constitution, you should be able to have a reallyÂ good and valid reason, and be able to show the citizens that it doesnâ€™t work,â€? Vogel said. â€œAnd nobody that proposed this amendmentÂ has demonstrated that the current
court plan doesnâ€™t work.â€? Vogel said the proposedÂ amendment directly injects partisan politics into a system that has been as free from politics as possible for the past 70 years. The amendment would also affect term limits of commission members. Currently the term limits are two years for the chief justice on the commission and six-year, staggered termsÂ for all other members. The amendment would change the terms to four years for bothÂ non-voting members and governor appointees. The plan also removes the requirement thatÂ governor appointeesÂ be non-lawyers, creating the potential for the panel to be entirely comprised of lawyers.
District 15: Republican Corlew, Democrat Carpenter seek House seat Continued from Page A1 income by 50 percent over five years â€” in 10 percent yearly increments, provided tax revenues have not declined. â€œThe theory of this is we allow people to keep more of their hard-earned money to put it back into the economy,â€? he said. The result, Corlew said, would be a reduced tax burden on businesses and increased tax revenues from the economic gain of workers. With a campaign slogan of â€œRebuilding the House,â€? Democratic contender Carpenter aims to foster an environment where political games are set aside in favor
of restoring the legislatureâ€™s â€œcommitment to common sense, and to our common purpose,â€? according to his campaign website. â€œI think most people are tired of the partisanship,â€? Carpenter said. â€œPeople know that the No. 1 issue is getting the economy going and creating jobs.â€? To that end, Corlew said his party affiliation would make him a more effective representative for the district right away. â€œThe reality of the political situation in Missouri right now is Republicans control both houses â€Ś,â€? Corlew said. â€œI can move the Northland agenda higher up on the priority list.â€? The Democratic candidate
wasnâ€™t willing to cede races across the state to the GOP until after Nov. 6. He also said party affiliation became less significant after an election. â€œIâ€™m not worried about having to work with a Republican majority,â€? Carpenter said. â€œAfter the election you stop being just a Republican or just a Democrat and start being a representative of the people.â€? Corlew agreed, saying metro-area legislators from both parties vote for bills that will benefit Greater Kansas City. He cited a bigger geographic divide between the urban and rural areas of the state than among local lawmakers of differing parties. â€œWorking together also
means we have to work together in such a way to be persuasive for our area,â€? Corlew said. Carpenter said the geographic divide was another example of where people need to come together so that everyone can move forward, citing quality educational opportunities and good tax policy as vehicles to do just that. â€œThese can benefit everyone in Missouri, not just people in the 15th District,â€? Carpenter said.
taxes low,â€? Carpenter said. â€œThe tobacco tax is the only one we need to look at because we are 50th out of 50 (states) at 17 cents (a pack).â€? By raising the tobacco tax, he said Missouri would continue to be well below the high end of tobacco taxes across the nation. Corlew said the proposed 73-cent-per-cigarette-pack jump is too much at a time when the economy is struggling, but he would support a smaller increase. He said he was concerned such a large increase would Amendment 3 Proposition B Carpenter said he intends Carpenter supports force consumers and some to vote against Amendment increasing the stateâ€™s tobac- convenience stores, along with jobs and revenue, 3 because he supports the co tax. Corlew does not. Missouri Plan for selecting â€œI believe in holding across state lines.

judges for the stateâ€™s high court as it is today. The statewide ballot question would change the selection of supreme court and court of appeals judges to a process that gives the governor increased authority. Corlew, an attorney at Shook, Hardy & Bacon in Kansas City, also said he planned to vote â€œno.â€? â€œPeople think the process is too partisan now, but the answer isnâ€™t to make it more partisan,â€? Corlew said.

Hunters challenged to donate 10,000 deer to Share the Harvest this season Missouri deer hunters are encouraged to help reach the goal of contributing 10,000 deer to families in need through the Share the Harvest program this year. Share the Harvest is a partnership between the Conservation Federation of Missouri, the Missouri Department of Conservation, regional food banks, local food pantries and meat processors to provide venison donated by hunters and processors to Missouri families in need. Throughout the archery and November firearms deer seasons, the Share the Harvest program subsidizes a portion of the cost of butchering and packaging whole deer donated by Missouri hunters; in many
WHEN TO HUNT The 2012 Missouri firearms deer season opens Saturday, Nov. 10, and runs through Tuesday, Nov. 20. Archery season for deer began Sept. 15 and runs through Friday, Nov. 9, and then will resume on Wednesday, Nov. 21, through Tuesday, Jan. 15, 2013. There also are hunting seasons for youth, for hunters using muzzleloaders and other approved alternative hunting methods, and for harvesting antlerless deer. communities, local partners cover the remainder of the processing costs. To participate, hunters simply take their deer to an approved processor and indicate how much venison they wish to contribute, ranging from a few pounds to a whole deer. Now in its 21st season, the Share the Harvest pro-
gram is able to process up to 10,000 deer this season and provide that venison to families in need. During the 2011 hunting season, nearly 6,200 whole deer were processed through Share the Harvest, resulting in more than 370,000 pounds of venison for families in need. That was an increase over the 5,390
whole deer donated in 2010, and the 4,200 whole deer donated in 2009. In addition to the Conservation Federation of Missouri and the Department of Conservation, statewide sponsors of the cost-reduction program include Bass Pro Shops, Shelter Insurance, Missouri Chapter Whitetails Unlimited, Missouri Chapter Safari Club International, Missouri Chapter National Wild Turkey Federation, Drury Hotels, Enterprise Holdings, Midway USA, the Missouri Deer Hunters Association, Pyramid Home Health Services and Wells Fargo Bank.

Trio of Eagle Scouts from Troop 992 A Court of Honor for Eagle Scouts Jacob H. Liebsch, Bradley L. Taylor and James A. Cookinham of Troop 992 in Gladstone was held Oct. 14, at the Kansas City Regional Police Academy. Liebsch is the son of Larry and Tammi Liebsch. He attends Liberty North High School. His Eagle project consisted of a 12-foot-by-19-foot concrete patio, a retaining rock wall, picnic tables and some landscaping at the Independent Order of the
Odd Fellows and Veterans of Foreign Post No. 10906 in Gladstone. It provides a patio area for lodge events and meetings. Taylor is the son of Curtis and Kimberly Taylor. He attends Oak Park High School. He designed and managed the building of a bridge at Hodge Park. The bridge was built over a washed-out gully that had become difficult to cross, especially after it had rained. He also lined the path to and from the bridge to gain access to a
picnic shelter. Cookinham is the son of John and Janet Cookinham. He attends Park Hill High School. His project was to accurately and permanently mark 89 graves in the Anders Jacks Cemetery at Weatherby Lake. Native fieldstone markers were stabilized by pouring concrete around each marker. It provides for more convenient mowing and maintenance. It was also the goal to maintain the historical value and appearance of the cemetery.

Student vocalists picked for all-district choirs Several vocalists from North Kansas City schools were chosen for KC Metro All-District Choirs. Selected from Oak Park High School for the All-District Mixed Choir are altos Bethany Buckland and Bailey Wilkerson, soprano Mariah Studebaker and tenor Marvin Byas IV. Selected for the All-District Women’s Choir are altos Courtney Cauley, Destonee DeOrnellis and Hannah Leach, and sopranos Emily Cunningham, Natalie Honeycutt and Kylie Moon. Selected from Winnetonka High School for the All-District Women’s Choir are sopranos Madison Dodd, Libbie Liechti, Shelby Miller, Jackie Summers and Megan Willis. Ten of the 11 who made the All-District Mixed Choir are now eligible to audition for the All-State Choir. Sophomore Ryan Ganaban will have to wait until he’s a junior to audition, since only juniors and seniors are allowed to compete for All-State. Those who succeed in late October tryouts will perform at the All-State Choir concert during the Missouri Music Educators Association convention in January. The KC Metro All-District Festival, where the KC Metro All-District choirs perform, will be Saturday, Jan. 19, at Staley High School, 2800 NE Shoal Creek Parkway.

for STATE REPRESENTATIVE
Support for Senior Citizens To allow seniors to keep their homes, I’ll seek a cap on property taxes for those on fixed incomes. I’ll also host annual information fairs for Northland seniors to listen to their concerns, give updates on laws that affects seniors, and provide helpful information about senior-specific services.
Honoring Veterans As a state we need to do our best to thank and respect the heroes who have served our country. To provide care for an aging veteran population and to assist those returning from recent wars, I’ll support veterans services, including a continued funding source for the Missouri Veterans Homes.
Quality Infrastructure and Community Revitalization As State Representative, I’ll work with the cities and villages in District 15 (in the heart of the Northland) to enhance infrastructure, such as roads, water and sewer systems, and telecommunications; to revitalize the North Oak and Antioch corridors; and to participate in Gladstone’s new Village Center area.
