Ground breaks on city center By Matthew Hunt Soaring temperatures could not keep city officials and guests away from the groundbreaking ceremony for a professional building at Linden Square on Monday, Aug. 6. Carol Suter, mayor of Gladstone, opened the ceremony and said the city had been asking for a couple of decades for a city center — a place to call home and gather with family and friends. “The dream is coming out of the ground,” Suter said. “What is coming is what the people have been asking for.” The city center is located in Linden Square, covering a 40-acre plot at Northeast 70th and North Cherry Streets. The center will include an amphitheater, outdoor ice skating rink, concession stand, public restrooms and the business Dentistry for Children. The amphitheater will hold about 250 people, and officials predict it could host more than 200 events a year. Suter said the project will bring in not only the community but jobs for the area as well. She said the project could bring more than

Dr. Louis A. Pollina of Dentistry for Children said his business had out grown its current location, and the staff is excited about the new space. He said it’s been a dream working with the city, and his busi-

ness will bring in as many as 10 new jobs. “This is a state-of-the-art building, and we can treat more kids,” Pollina said. “Expanding will mean more chairs, more staff.” CENTER/Page A2

Gladstone mulls consolidating dispatching services By Angie Anaya Borgedalen Gladstone and Liberty are among the cities in Clay County that have joined with other local cities and public safety agencies in hiring a professional consulting firm to conduct a public safety consolidation feasibility study. Under a memorandum of understanding, the Clay County Public Safety Dispatch Consortium, made up of police and fire departments and the sheriff’s office, would explore the possible consolidation of dispatching services. Members of the consortium include Clay County, Liberty, Gladstone, Excelsior Springs, Pleasant Valley, Kearney, Kearney Fire & Rescue Protection District and North Kansas City. After Gladstone sent out requests for proposals and received nine responses, the consortium selected Intertech Associates to conduct the study. The firm will be paid $92,000 to provide a comprehensive overview of current conditions, make recommendations and offer options for dispatch centers. Clay County, Gladstone and Liberty have agreed to each pay $20,000 toward the study’s cost. According to Lt. Andy Hedrick of the Liberty Police Department, the study is expected to be completed next year. Hedrick told the Liberty City

Council at its meeting July 23 that for Liberty to remain as its own Public Safety Answering Point it could cost an estimated $2 million to $3 million to acquire new radios, equipment and infrastructure. Due to narrow banding requirements and federal mandates by the FCC, the city’s current system could be obsolete and unusable after Jan. 1, 2019, Hedrick said. “At this point we don’t think that date is set in stone,” Hedrick said. “We’ll see where we are in six to eight months. That’s when some decisions will have to be made.” Gladstone Police Chief Mike Hasty said their situation is a bit different. After passing a quartercent law enforcement sales tax in 2010, Gladstone spent $1.6 million for new equipment and joined Kansas City’s state-of-the-art regional radio system. Gladstone budgets about $30,000 annually to pay Kansas City to maintain the system. “We were interested in the study to see if there’s a cost savings in consolidating dispatching services,” Hasty said. “Right now we’re all operating multi-call locations.” In 1995, a similar study was initiated involving Clay County, Liberty, Gladstone, North Kansas City and Excelsior Springs but was not implemented. “A lot has changed in the last 15-16 years, especially technology,” Hasty said.

CENTER: Residents have been asking for this project Continued from Page A1 Gladstone City Manager Kirk Davis said that the City Council had been supportive of the project and the city is helping bring to life something residents have asked for. He said the project would not be as exciting if the public wasn’t behind it. “We now have the opportunity to do this,” Davis said. “We needed to create this center, and we are doing that.” A lot of hard work and manpower have gone into making Linden Square a reality, Pollina said. He said he has lived in Gladstone since he was a child, and keeping his business in this community was important to him. “The people in this community are great,” Pollina

He said the combination of both the doctor’s office and city center will lead to more development.

Horoscopes ARIES Mar 21/Apr 20

Marked improvement is on your horizon, Aries. As new possibilities seem to rise without cause or reason, you see the silver lining in the cloud.

TAURUS Apr 21/May 21

VIRGO Aug 24/Sept 22

Virgo, a big opportunity comes your way that you shouldn’t pass up. Resist the urge to point out all of the negatives and focus only on the positives for the time being.

LIBRA difficult Sept 23/Oct 23

Taurus, it’s when you feel like you’re being pulled in too many directions. This may require sitting down and making a priority list to get started.

GEMINI May 22/Jun 21

There’s more than meets the eye to a particular situation, but you seem biased, Libra. Consider all sides of the situation before you decide which side you’re on.

SCORPIO Don’t try to mask your Oct 24/Nov 22

emotions this week, Gemini. It is OK if others see the truth about how you feel. Let others explore the honesty in your expression and actions.

It’s finally time for you to relax, Scorpio. After weeks of running here and there, you now have the opportunity to simply kick up your feet and enjoy yourself.

CAPRICORN Dec 22/Jan 20

There is no easy way around the work you have to get done, Capricorn, but there are plenty of helpers who may be able to pitch in and lend a hand.

AQUARIUS Jan 21/Feb 18

Stop looking to others for solutions to your problems, Aquarius. The only one who is qualified to handle them is you and possibly a spouse or romantic partner.

PISCES Feb 19/Mar 20

Pisces, this week you feel like you’re walking around on a cloud. But you know full well you have everything handled.

Pond’s Picks

Bio of late singer Jim Croce written by the woman who knew him best I’ve Got a Name By Ingrid Croce & Jimmy Rock Hardcover, 307 pages ($25)

depicted in this five-hour made-for-TV History Channel movie (which originally aired as a Memorial Day weekend mini-series) was all-out war. Kevin Costner and Bill Paxman star as the two patriarchs who lock horns in the late 1800s as a murder and a misunderstanding lead to bloodshed and vengeance in the hills of West Virginia and Kentucky — and a bitter conflict that would stretch on for decades and ultimately leave its mark on American history.

remains true to the swashbuckling spirit of its source material, a rollicking tale of hidden pirate booty, salty buccaneers and adventure on the high seas. The mostly British cast includes Eddie Izzard as Long John Silver; Elijah Wood, who breaks out of his “Lord of the Rings” mold as crewmate Ben Gunn; Toby Regbo as Jim Hawkins, the young protagonist around which the story unfolds; and Donald Sutherland, aboard to provide some color as the pirate captain Flint. Bonus features include commentary and interviews with the cast.

History comes alive in America’s most famous family feud Hatfields & McCoys Blu-ray ($55.99)

You may hear “family feud” and think of a TV game show, but the legendary clash of hillbilly clans

You know his songs: “Time in a Bottle,” “Bad, Bad Leroy Brown” and “I Got a Name.” But chances are you don’t know much about the singer-songwriter behind them, other than, perhaps, that Jim Croce was only 30 years old and at the top of his musical career when he died in a plane crash in 1973.

NKC Hospital recognized North Kansas City Hospital has been named one of the nation’s 100 Great Community Hospitals by Becker’s Hospital Review. The Great Community Hospital designation is awarded after extensive review of data from industry sources including iVantage Health Analytics, Thomson Reuters, HealthGrades and the American Nurses Credentialing Center, according to a press release. To be eligible for this award, hospitals must have fewer than 550 patient beds with minimal teaching programs. Founded in 1958 as an 80-bed community hospital, North Kansas City Hospital continues to expand to meet the needs of its growing community. North Kansas City Hospital’s spine surgical services are among the top 5 percent in the nation, according to HealthGrades, the leading firm in independent healthcare ratings. In 2012, the hospital has also received recognition for its patient safety, emergency medicine and pulmonary care excellence from HealthGrades. North Kansas City Hospital is at 2800 Clay Edwards Drive, North Kansas City.
