Keystone Awards honor top Clay Co. developments
Gladstone Recipients Dentistry for Children Dentistry for Children, 7001 N. Cherry St., relocated to its new commercial building in early 2013. The two-and-a-half-story structure was one of the first new buildings of the Gladstone Village Center master plan. The public-private project is just west of City Hall. “A $44 million project, the development created 29 new jobs,” according to a Keystone Awards pamphlet. “The building features many sustainable design elements, while establishing a presence for the new Gladstone city center.”
Linden Square, Dentistry for Children in Gladstone among recipients By Dale Garrison Projects that have boosted Clay County jobs and quality of life were recognized Dec. 10 with Keystone Recognition Awards presented by the Clay County Economic Development Council. The event drew nearly 300 people to Harrah’s North Kansas City. Led by a special Keystone Vision Award to Briarcliff developers Patty and Charles Garney, the awards recognized businesses and organizations that improved the economic environment and quality of life through new locations or expansion during 2013. The financial aspect alone is significant: developments nominated for Keystone Awards represented more than $2 billion in Clay County investments. The diversity of projects was also significant. Besides Briarcliff, other honorees
included Ford Motor Co., which invested $1.1 billion and brought the area 1,600 new jobs. Other Keystone honorees were Adrian Steel-Hunt Midwest Business Center, Kansas City; Ball’s Price Chopper No. 21, Kansas City; Dentistry for Children, Gladstone; Dick’s Sporting Goods, Liberty; Holland 1916 Inc., Liberty; KC Custom Cabine., Smithville; Linden Square, Gladstone; L.P.G. Ventures, Kearney; Magna Seating, Excelsior Springs; McCrite Plaza at Briarcliff, Kansas City; Mosaic Life Care at Shoal Creek, Kansas City; North Kansas City Hospital, Emergency Department; Northland Cathedral Campus, Kansas City; Northland Sonic, Kearney; Owen Homes LLC, Smithville; The Gardens at Northgate Village—Phase III Rainen Cos., North Kansas City; and Woodneath Library Center, Kansas City. Two special honors were
also announced, one to the Missouri Department of Transportation and the second to a collaborative team comprised of the City of Kansas City, the Kansas City Tax Increment Financing Commission, Hunt Midwest and the North Kansas City Schools. That team was honored for fast tracking a major Northland roadway, Northeast 108th Street. MoDOT was honored for the 96th Street and 108th Street interchanges over U.S. Highway 169, plus the Flintlock Flyover and Missouri Highway 291 exchange with I-35 between Liberty and Kansas City. The meeting also included a year-end review of Clay County and the EDC by Chair Tony Reinhart. Reinhart thanked the EDC’s many volunteer members and stressed the success of collaboration and networking promoted by the Development Council. He

Linden Square The $1.2 million Linden Square project is one of the tangible results of more than 30 years of discussion about the importance creating a sense of place, including a downtown city center, in Gladstone. In 2013 the city officially opened Linden Square Outdoor Pavilion, ice skating rink and amphitheater. The site plays host to free weekly concerts in the spring and summer, and skating on synthetic ice in colder months. The Linden Square project is credited with spurring an additional $30 million in investment, new jobs and quality of life. “This project has helped spur other developments such as Dentistry for Children and the new Heights luxury apartment project,” the pamphlet said.

MGE seeks to raise surcharge Missouri Gas Energy, a division of Laclede Gas Company, has filed an application with the Missouri Public Service Commission seeking to adjust the infrastructure system replacement surcharge on the bills of its natural gas customers. The surcharge first appeared on customer bills in April 2004. MGE is seeking the adjustment to reflect
infrastructure replacement investments made by the natural gas company since January 2013, according to a press release. These costs for natural gas pipeline replacements and relocations are not currently included in MGEâ€™s rates. The current ISRS for residential customers is 96 cents a month. MGE proposes to increase the ISRS to $1.19 a month. Applications to
intervene and participate in this case must be filed no later than Tuesday, Dec. 31, with the secretary of the Missouri Public Service Commission, P.O. Box 360, Jefferson City, MO 65102, or by using the commissionâ€™s Electronic Filing and Information System. MGE provides natural gas service to approximately 500,000 customers in Missouri.

Fire Department warns of carbon monoxide dangers Improperly functioning fuel-burning appliances can be dangerous and produce high levels of carbon monoxide in the home, especially in the winter months when furnaces are working overtime and houses are less likely to be naturally ventilated, according
the home. Carbon monoxide alarms can be battery operated or be powered with 110 volts with battery backup. Keep these tips in mind when installing or replacing carbon monoxide detectors in a home: • Do not install carbon monoxide alarms close to
to a press release from the Gladstone Fire Department. Carbon monoxide alarms should be installed according to the manufacturer’s instructions. It is recommended that carbon monoxide alarms be installed near the main sleeping areas and on each level of
heating vents or where the device can be blocked by drapes or furniture, which can cause a filtering or obstruction of the air moving into the unit. • Do not install carbon monoxide alarms in kitchens or near fuel-burning appliances. •Test the devices monthly
and replace the batteries every six months. •If your carbon monoxide alarm goes off, call your natural gas provider or the local fire department, especially if you or members of your family are experiencing headache, nausea or sudden fatigue.

It’s a long-standing Jefferson City.
“I was reading Mid Rivers Newsmagazine when I saw the article about donating a Christmas tree for the governor’s mansion,” said Floetta, age 76. “I thought this was the perfect chance.” According to the Carreras, they wanted to have the tree removed within the next couple of years anyway, as they thought it had grown too big for their yard. The couple has lived at their current home for 20 years. The tree was already there when they moved in. “I used to decorate it every year myself,” said Jose, age 78, “but it eventually got so big I couldn’t even do it with an extension ladder. That’s when I stopped.” According to Jose, the tree was about 7 feet tall when they bought the home.
After a statewide search, a 36-foot tall Colorado spruce was selected by the Missouri Department of Conservation as the holiday tree to display at the governor’s mansion in Jefferson City.
