Re: “Was WyCo's Hollywood Casino Grant Fund defrauded?

A good chunk of those funds were raised by each home owner who paid into this fund to get the sidewalks redone. It wasn't a handout as street by street had to raise funds to qualify.

Herb Sih is a great person. Truly. I feel sad for he and his family being under such attack. He and his family are real, kind, generous and loving people. There are real people behind these articles...children of families. Please think of them before publicly saying unkind things.

KC Watch Doggy - also throw in that 18th Vine District and the 2 failed attempts to bring back the River Quay Market area in the 1990's as well.

that would of been back about the time the Steamboat Arabia was involved in a Law suit over leaking water into their Exhibit back in the 1990's, if ya remember that ??

KCMO has always Failed at just about everything they do, or have done thru the past decades, starting with Clever when he was Mayor and that Degenerate Carol Coe when she was city council Misfit always making the news, if ya remember any of that fiasco' ???

KCMO city hall officials are incompetent and totally inept, and it won't change anytime soon !

Don't blame the lenders for filling the need and taking advantage in a fucked up state like Missouri. Blame the crooked republican legislature for being complicit and filling their own coffers. There is a reason MO has more payday loan places than anywhere else. Everybody involved is getting huge payoffs.

Re: “Was WyCo's Hollywood Casino Grant Fund defrauded?

"But I do think in particular, Mark Mohler, who is on the Wyandotte County Parks Foundation board and also president of Rosedale Development Association, is upset that RDA did not receive more funds and as a result has been part of creating these problems."

It all comes back to big bad RDA, doesn't it?

Re: “Was WyCo's Hollywood Casino Grant Fund defrauded?

I know we didn't see no new side walks or curbs on my Cambridge St in the Spring Valley Neighborhood and I'm thinking I'm glad we didn't if this is how they paid for the side walks on Francis. Nice going!

Re: “Was WyCo's Hollywood Casino Grant Fund defrauded?

Man- she REALLY REALLY likes the sidewalks over in the SVNA!!!

Visit the SVNA website that talks about the sidewalk repair here: http://www.springvalleykck.org/sidewalks-r…

You see this text from 2014-
2014 was our most exciting and productive year for sidewalks repair. Approximately one third of the neighborhood got their sidewalks, curbs, and driveway aprons repaired. Commissioner Ann Murguia dedicated $120,000 of her Community Neighborhood Infrastructure Program (CNIP) funds towards this work. The Neighborhood Association also raised approximately $20,000 of additional funds. Work on Francis, Eaton, and Cambridge Streets south of 45th was completed over the summer. The results are fantastic and speak for themselves!

Re: “Was WyCo's Hollywood Casino Grant Fund defrauded?

So the 'new process' is using fraudulent tax IDs to apply for grants. Yeah can't imagine why anyone would have a problem with that new process. Classic politicking.

Re: “Think Big Partners is KC's tech darling. Where'd its money come from?

How many of you have taken out a payday loan? Who was holding a gun to your head when you did it? Herb? Hatchet jobs like this one reminds how small-minded our small town can be. Herb has spent a good part of his life trying to give back to this community...and this is how we show our appreciation???

All you PDL people can defend your actions on this comment thread, but you know very well what you are doing is wrong. Taking advantage of the weak is the lowest of the low.

Not that your garbage comment deserves a response, but, uh, no, whoever you're referring to is not my girlfriend.

Re: “Think Big Partners is KC's tech darling. Where'd its money come from?

It seems clear to me that the morals of Mr. Sih have been put into question. I think the appropriate question now should be: what other immoral things has he done since? How much of it is flat out illegal? What don't we know? How deep does the rabbit hole go?

How can we continue letting this man be seen as a pillar of KC entrepreneurship and technology?

Re: “Think Big Partners is KC's tech darling. Where'd its money come from?

If Herb would have mowed the lawn of Tucker who is the kingpin of all the PDL scam, is he guilty by association as well? This article is stupid; Herb didn't do the loans, set the crazy interest rates, etc. He generated and sold leads.

Whats interesting is, isn't the girlfriend of the writer of this story same girl that had a) got fired by the EDC and b) had a huge blowup with Herb in the past??? Seems like a hatchet job.

Re: “Think Big Partners is KC's tech darling. Where'd its money come from?

I agree Herb wasn't the main point of contact but he was ultimately tied to Matt Kirk and dare I mention Daren Fristoe who ran the "HR" department for Clickspeed. Fristoe has been brought up on charges for stealing money from his previous employer. If Herb doesn't want to get a bad wrap he should choose better business partners. I'm sure he didn't have a problem cashing in on the $$$ when things were good at Clickspeed or any of the other ventures. His biggest mistake was letting Matt Kirk run any business. He is the real slime. Throw Fristoe in there as Kirk's henchman and you have quite the duo.

Re: “Think Big Partners is KC's tech darling. Where'd its money come from?

Reading some of these comments above serve as a continual reminder that those who have skin in the game, are usually the fleshpots involved in it. So funny reading this about the yuppie slime balls, then watching the cheerleaders in the media and the office buildings yakkety yak happy thoughts about their horizons. Reminds me of a youthful stripped down version of Brownback's interpretation of Koch libertarian "anarcho-capitalism" crap. Want freedom from wage slavery? Get a pay day loan, start up a small business and PAY NO TAXES! Why hell's bells it's a damn economic miracle! So funny. Good job! The Pitch, free and on the street, one of the last real papers in the place.

Herb was never the main point of contact in Clickspeed's entire existence. He occasionally made an appearance. His focus was on irons in other fires.
