Ice skating rink to open Nov. 20

70% of voters expected to cast ballots Nov. 6

Synthetic surface to hold up to 120 skaters; season predicted to be mid-November to mid-February By Nancy Hull Rigdon Hundreds of white plastic pieces — 440 to be exact — will soon snap together like a jigsaw puzzle. Late this month, the resulting 44-footby-76-foot synthetic skating rink surface will make its debut during Gladstone’s annual Mayor’s Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony. “We think it’s going to have the appeal of Crown Center,” Gladstone Parks Director Sheila Lillis said of plans to decorate the trees surrounding the rink with white lights for the Tuesday, Nov. 20, holiday event. “It’s going to have this peppermint candy-like look.” Lillis gave a presentation on the ice skating rink’s opening and operational plans during the Oct. 22 Gladstone City Council meeting. The following lays out the details of the facility, according to information from Lillis and other city officials: • The skating rink is under constr uction at Linden Square — a city project at 70th and Cherry streets that

sits within a couple of blocks of Gladstone’s Community Center, Municipal Pool and City Hall. • The outdoor rink’s synthetic ice surface consists of plastic pieces assembled into an oval resting on a base of plywood sheets. A kick plate will go around the bottom of the rink, and two handrails will encompass the rink. The rink will accommodate between 100 and 120 skaters at once. • The rink will have a soft opening on Saturday and Sunday, Nov. 17 and 18, in conjunction with the fifth anniversary celebration of the Gladstone Community Center. Community center members can skate for free between 1 and 6 p.m. that weekend. The rink’s official opening will coincide with the Mayor’s Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony the evening of Nov. 20. Through President’s Day, Feb. 18, 2013, or later, the rink typically will be open from 5 to 11 p.m. Thursday to Sunday. Expanded hours are planned for days when the North Kansas City Schools district does

Candidates, cigarette tax increase and first step in changing Clay County government on ballot By Angie Anaya Borgedalen With some hotly contested races at the top of the ticket for president, U.S. Senate and governor, the Clay County Election Board is preparing for a busy night on Tuesday, Nov. 6. “We could have a 70 percent turnout like we did four years ago, but we really don’t know,” said Patty Evans, election board co-director. “The Secretary of State’s Office is predicting a high turnout.” According to Evans, the county has 156,605 registered voters. Registration deadline for the November election ended Oct. 10. In recent years, Missouri has tended to lean more Republican. Although they have gotten almost all the attention, Democrats Barack Obama and Joe Biden and Republicans Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan are not the only candidates on the ballot. Libertarians Gary Johnson and James P. Gray, and Constitution Party members Virgil Goode and Jim Clymer are also running for president of the United States. Evans said a presidential election

Private parties will be available Monday to Wednesday. • Each skater will be charged $5. The fee covers ice time and skate rental. No one will be allowed on the ice without ice skates, and private skates will not be allowed. Skate blades dull quickly (within a few hours) on the synthetic surface, and the city will be tasked with ensuring skate blades remain sharp. • In early 2013, the city hopes to begin offering ice skating lessons at the facility. The city is seeking instructors. • In addition to the skating rink, the Linden Square project includes plans for an amphitheater and the Pollina Building, a public-private

The entire Linden Square project costs about $900,000. To finance the project, the city is using certifications of participation, also known as

RINK: Synthetic surfaces common in Canada Continued from Page A1 leasehold revenue bonds, as well as the city’s capital equipment replacement fund and capital improvement sales tax revenue. • The ice skating rink’s synthetic surface has a 20-year life expectancy.

Maintenance costs for the synthetic surface are drastically lower than costs associated with maintaining a real ice surface. • Synthetic-surface ice skating rinks are not in common in the region. Gladstone city officials are familiar with synthetic surface ice skating

rinks in Hershey, Pa., and found the surfaces are very common in Canada. Mayor Carol Suter praised city staff for their work on the ice skating rink. “It has been a hoot to watch this thing come out of the ground,” Suter said.

“I didn’t have to run for office,” Owen said. “But I saw some things that were not right.” In particular, Owen disagreed with the commission’s decision to raise tax rates without a public vote in 2008. “If you want to raise the

taxes, you need to let the people vote on it,” Owen said. “Back in the ’90s we needed a new jail and a new juvenile justice center. We went to the people, they voted for it and we built it,” he said. During his upcoming term, Owen plans to keep

the public involved in decisions regarding taxes. “I don’t plan to vote for an increase in taxes unless the people vote for it,” Owen said. Along with keeping a close watch on taxes, Owen looks forward to representing the county once again. “I will be a voice for the common man of Clay County,” he said.

St. Louis police force hopes Shull, Sweere seek to eliminate state oversight first elected office

By Katie Kreider

Missouri voters will get the opportunity to give St. Louis control of its police force for the first time since the Civil War. St. Louis and Kansas City are the only cities in the country who do not currently control their own police forces. Both cities are overseen by a state commission picked by Missouri’s governor. St. Louis City Mayor Francis Slay said the measure will give greater power to citizens to scrutinize the police force. Under state law, the police force is controlled by a governor-appointed board that has the ultimate say over the department’s operation. If the police had local control, the police chief would have to answer directly to the city. Over the decades, there have been numerous attempts to establish a bill that permits local control. This is the first time it will appear on the statewide ballot. The St. Louis police force was first stripped of local control after the Civil War when the then-governor charged the police for being too sympathetic toward freed slaves. Rep. Jamilah Nasheed D-St. Louis City said the governor put a Confederate commissioner in control of the police force as a way to advance his own agenda and rid them of Constitutional protection. “It’s an antiquated system that was built on corruption and hatred, and so I think it is about time to just do away with that system, because the city of St. Louis and the state of Missouri no longer cultivate

Shall Missouri law be amended to: ■ allow any city not within a county (the City of St. Louis) the option of transferring certain obligations and control of the city’s police force from the board of police commissioners currently appointed by the governor to the city and establishing a municipal police force; ■ establish certain procedures and requirements for governing such a municipal police force including residency, rank, salary, benefits, insurance, and pension; and ■ prohibit retaliation against any employee of such municipal police force who reports conduct believed to be illegal to a superior, government agency, or the press? State governmental entities estimated savings will eventually be up to $500,000 annually. Local governmental entities estimated annual potential savings of $3.5 million; however, consolidation decisions with an unknown outcome may result in the savings being more or less than estimated. that mentality,” Nasheed said. Supporters argue that giving the city local control will make police officers more accountable. They also argue that the police force will be more responsive to citizens, which will help stifle the high crime levels in the city. Supporters also argue that St. Louis paying for public safety but not controlling it is modern-day “taxation without representation.” In past years, local control faced resistance from St. Louis police, whose advocates expressed concern about political interference in the department and with pension plans. The ballot issue is a compromise with the Police Officers Association, A Safer Missouri and Slay. One provision addressed was

the protection from political meddling. The ballot language specifically prohibits retaliation against any police officers by the government. Another provision addresses the protection of their pensions and their health care benefits. However, the American Civil Liberties Union of Eastern Missouri says that the language on the ballot will limit citizen input and deny them of a citizen review board. Jeff Roorda, the business manager of the St. Louis Police Officers Association, said that was not so. “The only thing in there is that the employers are responsible for disciplining employees, which is true of every other workplace in every other business in this country,” Roorda said.

Public administrator anticipates next term By Ryne Dittmer Debbie Gwen, Clay County’s public administrator, is looking forward to continuing to use her position to improve the lives of county residents. The Democrat faces no opponent to her re-election on the Nov. 6 ballot. Gwen has served in the role since 2005 and helped the county develop the state’s first Restoration Program. The program works with individuals who have been placed under guardianship, a legal relationship made by a court for individuals who have been determined unable to make their own financial or personal decisions. These individuals are assigned a guardian by the court to make those decisions until they are restored to making choices on their own. “We see them all the way through from the time they’re appointed to the time they’re

restored. They’re part of our family in our office,” Gwen said. “I hope to have more people get in the restoration program because our clients can take control of goals they have in getting out of guardianship.” Gwen’s passion for the program has led to roles with the National Guardianship Association. Additionally, Gwen was appointed to a two-year term as the president of the Missouri Association of Public Administrators in April. “I love my job, I enjoy helping others,” Gwen said. “This office is very unique. I always say it’s the best kept secret in Clay County.”

NOVEMBER SPECIAL Male Cat Neuter ~ $40.00

By Angie Anaya Borgedalen Republican Noel Shull and Democrat Jim Sweere are making their political débuts Tuesday, Nov. 6, by running for the newly carved-out District 16 Missouri House seat. The new district will serve constituents in Kansas City North immediately north of Gladstone. Shull is a retired UMB Bank executive vice president. He is a graduate of the University of Missouri-Columbia and SMU Graduate School of Banking in Dallas, Texas. He is involved with a number of public boards and civic organizations, i n c l u d ing ser ving on the Mid- Cont inent Public Library Board of Trustees a nd t he Shoal Creek Living History Board of Directors. He formerly served on the Missouri Gaming Commission. Sweere is currently a driver and dockman for ABF Freight System. He holds a bachelor’s degree in management from the University of Arkansas. He is a third-generation member of the Teamsters Union and a former Boy Scout leader. Both men believe that the most pressing issues facing the 16th District are creating jobs and stimulating the economy. “The folks that I have met are concerned about good jobs — jobs with good wages and benefits. Having good jobs drives the local economy in Clay County through the demand created when families have money to afford better housing, more goods and services, and education,” Sweere said. “Jobs and expanding the economy are the most important issues to be resolved for the state and the everyday lives and needs of Clay County citizens,” Shull said. The two differ on potential right-to-work legislation that could crop up again in the legislature this session. “Business drives development, and Missouri has been unwilling to be competitive with its border states,” Shull said. “If some form of right-to-

work law can make Missouri more competitive, attracting new jobs, I would favor the people of Missouri deciding the issue by voting on it.” As a union member, Sweere is not convinced of the need to enact right-to-work legislation. Right-to-work laws ban the requirement that workers pay union dues as a condition of their employment. With the exception of Illinois, all states bordering Missouri have right-to-work laws. “Studies have shown that states which have enacted such laws have an 8 to 12 percent lower average wage,” Sweere said. “Those states also have more wo r k- r e l ated injuries and deaths. Allowing workers a stronger voice in their workplace leads to better work ing cond it ions and a higher standard of living.” Both District 16 candidates are supportive of adequate funding for education and of reviewing the tax credit program for its effectiveness. Sweere said he believes that funding at most grade levels is in adequate. “The public money provided by the state should go to the public school districts, K12, not to private schools,” Sweere said. “We must focus our efforts on the public education system, where all students can benefit. Post-secondary education spending should be focused on preparing students for the future. There is not a one-size-fits-all approach to this. Vocational training and liberal arts are both a part of this equation. I fully support the A+ program and the opportunities it raises for the middle class families of Missouri.” Shull said quality educational opportunities for students is an ongoing goal of local communities. “Students need to graduate from high school with the basic skills necessary to be productive citizens in the workplace or college,” Shull said. “Evaluating the ratio of state funding with other factors that contribute to that success is an ongoing evolving process.”

Clay County theft ring uncovered By Ryne Dittmer Charges are expected to be filed this week by the Clay County prosecutor in connection to a Northland theft ring believed to be responsible for several burglaries, stolen vehicles and larcenies across the Kansas City metro area. The ring was uncovered over seven months as the sheriff’s department connected multiple ongoing theft investigations. “The department had

been working on cases that began to intertwine over several months,” Clay County Sheriff Bob Boydston said. “Once it became clear what this ring was responsible for, they began their focus on the individuals involved.” In total, the department has recovered $40,000 worth of stolen property including five vehicles, a trailer tank with 250 gallons of diesel fuel, airport equipment and electric hand guns. All recovered

items have been returned to their owners. “There are at least six individuals linked to these incidents,” Capt. Ron Jackson of the sheriff’s office said. With the bust, the Clay County Sheriff’s Office was able to close six burglary cases, with the potential of more to follow. Law enforcement agencies from Liberty, Kansas City and Excelsior Springs have also been able to link the suspects to cases in their jurisdictions.
