Re: “Will the S.M. Park deer hunt become an annual event?

In NJ, all these issues were dealt with 20 some years ago at the "Great Swamp Wildlife Refuge" and yes there is an annual hunt every year since then. But they close the refuge, not leave it open during the day. Also, this is not in the middle of an urban area. Last, stray bullets from even a cheap hunting rifle can travel a mile or so and go through house walls. The announced "safety" rules appear totally inadequate. Only thing I saw was that it would be after closing?? Does this mean night hunting?? Does anyone understand the concept of gross negligence? What about the folks how might be a bit late getting out after walking around the lake? What about early morning joggers around the park? Are they going to close surrounding streets? There are a few houses over there. Are they going to put folks in hotels? Deer usually bed down just inside a tree line. So if hunters are within a hundred feet or so of park boundry, where could the lead end up? I avoid opening day for just this reason. Firearms in an urban area, what an mix. Who is providing accidental death insurance? Would an insurance company even touch this? Has the county even considered that a good lawyer can get 10 million per person? Just wondering. For those who think I support a non-hunt: I eat deer meat and I hunt with a bow as its just to easy, (for me anyway) to knock over a critter with a rifle. My point is safty, that's all. Perhaps the folks who object can attempt to obtain camping permits in the park for every day the hunt could occur.

Re: “Cauthen's Travels

Extremely lacking article. Where's the news here? Let alone the writer making misleading and inappropriate accusatory comments on the price of travel. What's the problem with 6K for a week in Europe? This is lower than a friend of mine spent a couple years ago. When I go to the Halifax area (family) I drop more than $2K. This article should not have gotten past the asst. editors desk let alone been published. Last, most of these conferences need to have a representative of Kansas City and someone has to go that adequatly represent the city. This is the mayors job. Is the author clueless as to North American Trade issues and how much of that goes through the local highways and railroads? Learn to do some real reporting.

Re: “Defending the Dimwit

If Kline is not a Johnson County resident; does that mean that he is not the DA? Dooes that also mean that any Johnson County convictions that have occued during his tenue are void and get overturned? Does that mean that teh people he fired are not actually fired? Interesting questions.

Re: “Strangler Strikes Again

Good points, bad points, and missing (but not ugly) points. However, Martin has written better pieces and I�m disappointed with this.

The comment that HNTB made earlier �mistakes� is not valid. The City & MODOT make the decisions that involve how much money is spent and of course the city/state goes with cheapest option and almost always fail to take a long term view. This is not an HNTB issue. This is normal government at work. Sigh.

However, I also am stunned that the qualification packages were looked at by the competition. Whoever at the city made the classification that these were not part of the bid packages should be fired. This is industrial trade secret stuff and now we have a local valid vendor who could very well decide not to do business with the city again. As a taxpayer, and ignoring the normal govt. at work comment above, I would still want a few �competitive� bids on any project to at provide some assurance that my taxpayer money is well spent, sort of.

Last, decking over the trench and turning it into a tunnel. This is actually not a bad idea. New York and Chicago have various items of this nature. However, what�s missing is varioous options of what will actually go on top. Comments on a tree lined Truman, a nice thought, are not valid. Look at Allis Plaza. Some very small trees in big planters is pretty much all you can do when everythng underneath is cement. What would be interesting would be a suspended parking garage for the Arena and the other public facilities a couple blocks west. Just a deck or two of parking that runs four blocks would provide a couple thousand parking spaces actually owned by the city that could be allocated to weekday use of these facilities. Or, some could be used as the southern downtown loop for light rail. Or, the city/state could sell or rent air rights and have someone else pay for it instead of taxpayers. This idea simply needs a lot more work.

Re: “Agent Zero

Bashing the closing agent is NOT appropriate. All these folks do is file the paperwork based upon the various documents that are given to them by the buyer and seller and, note that the closing agent does not close until buyer & seller have agreed with each other to everything. Thus, if there are issues, buyer & seller need to bash each other.
