Re: “Bye Bye, Buffalo

I had to chuckle at a couple of the license plate examples. The one with Fred Phelps and the Sunflower Spitter were my favorites. Of course, I live in Missouri so will not have to choose from any of these fine selections. I am sure we could come up with some of our own....Show Me.

Re: “Dueling Starbucks

What's not mentioned in this article is the major difference between the two stores. The existing store inside City Center Square at 12th & Main does not have an outside entrance and as such is restricted by the building hours, closing at 6pm. Therefore, it can only cater to the nearby businesses (i.e. people who work around the area). The new location inside H&R Block at 13th & Main has no such restrictions and is open until 10pm everyday (11pm Friday and Saturday). Finally those who live downtown and those coming for entertainment downtown have a Starbucks that is open!

Re: “By the Numbers: the Kansas Speedway

Keep looking at all the negative that the KC Speedway does, dont look at the tax dollars that are raised, the money that is generated in the entire area by fans buying gas, hotel rooms, meals, drinks, and buying other stuff from KC Kansas and MO. As for green house gases I believe you have wasted a lot putting together this article when you drove to work and clocked in. To think that someone actually pays you to write articles like this is beyond me, where can I apply.

Re: “Two-Wheel Discrimination

FWIW here is a letter that Town Center has been sending people who write them about this issue:

---
Thank you for your e-mail and for giving us the opportunity to give you accurate information. Actually no, it is not true that Town Center Plaza does not allow bicycles.

I must admit the management team at the center was surprised by both the direction and the tone of the article. Town Center Plaza welcomes our cyclist community, and Mr. Schroeder (the DDR spokesperson quoted in the article) is an avid cyclist himself. In fact, a local cyclist group meets here weekly ending their ride at Panera Bread for refreshments. One part of the article is correct. We have not had any requests for bike racks and as such it had not been entertained until recently.

In June of this year, Town Center Plaza began extensive investigation into a "Green" initiative directed toward doing our part for the good of the whole. The first and most immediate change you will see is the replacement of the old incandescent lighting formerly used in our holiday decor with new energy efficient LED bulbs. In addition, we are currently investigating the introduction of Hybrid vehicles for use by our operations team. Other initiatives will include more efficient use of HVAC at the center, education of our merchants, lighting timer settings, and in general a review of how we are conducting day-to-day business as it relates to this subject. Recently, I attended a seminar hosted by KCP&L regarding energy efficiency and Town Center Plaza has on- site meetings scheduled with their engineering team for assistance in our programs. This process has been "in-play" for several months and will be a substantial undertaking in 2008. One month ago, our General Manager wrote an article in our Merchant Newsletter titled "Green Saves Green," encouraging our retailers not to keep their doors open during the summer months while their air conditioners are running.

Both the local and corporate management group think the addition of bike racks is a great idea and based on your request, will be investigated. Town Center Plaza is a part of the community it serves and within the boundaries of our legal agreements, protecting our customers, merchants, and the property, fully embraces the needs of that group. Cyclists, like all Town Center Plaza customers are welcome at the center and where opportunities are presented that benefit that group every consideration will be given toward their needs.

Thank you again for your e-mail. Please don't hesitate to contact me if I can be of further assistance.

Regards,

Re: “Two-Wheel Discrimination

I hope cyclists or cycling advocates do NOT write angrily to Town Center, but rather point out that more people (cyclists) will reward Town Center with their business if Town Center makes more accommodation for cyclists.

Re: “By the Numbers: the Kansas Speedway

We get it. You don't like NASCAR, and you think a Chihuahua is a unit of measurement.
You're not the brightest bulb in christmas tree.

Re: “Spew You

Bob Mann, his wife and his chosen community have been heroes of mine for several years. They have tried to make a difference and found ways to do it. I just wish I had the wherewithal to help support them with more than words.
