    The Anita Gorman Park is a Clay County Parks and Recreation Facility with vast walking trails across from the former Vivian Farms Mansion. The park houses the Clay County Veteran's Memorial honoring veterans from the Civil War through the Iraq War. The engraved stone panels naming Clay County Veterans surround a great bronzed eagle in flight. The shaded trails lead to a fountain. The fountain is ground fed and as the fountain freezes in the winter, the frozen spray forms beautiful ice structures, and then re-melts to cooling sprays in the spring. This Parks and Recreation facility is very relaxing. Take your leashed pets and family for an old fashioned picnic.

    Take a break from the present and experience a 19th Century Christmas, right here in Clay County! There will be a walking tour through holiday decorated homes and log cabins of the 1800's while reenactors bring the village to life. Visit St. Nicholas in the Thornton Mansion decked out in his lush green velvet robes. You can do a little shopping at the Mercantile and the kids can post their St. Nicholas letter.

    Visitors can experience a Civil War encampment, warm up by the potbellied stove in the school, tour the 1884 Church, learn how 1880's Swedish immigrants celebrated Santa Lucia Day and stop by the Arnold Home to watch how lace was made. You can even go on a horse-drawn sleigh ride through the countryside.

    It all happens this Saturday, December 5th from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm. The Shoal Creek Living History Museum is located at 7000 NE Barry Road. For more information, call 816-792-2655.

    Be gone blue-green algae - be gone! And it is, according to the water quality control coordinator for the Corps of Engineers. It is safe to swim again at Smithville Lake.

    The blue-green algae "blooms" that were found in mid-July are no more. They can be harmful to people and pets. Fortunately, there were no illnesses reported as a result of their presence. Symptoms often include nausea, rash, irritated eyes, breathing problems, and, in some cases, seizures.

    The heavy rains of a few weeks ago increased inflow into the lake of excessive nutrients and when those combine with sunlight, that bad algae can form and become a nuisance and a health hazard. There is not a man-made solution, but rather a natural one, with lower inflow amounts and water levels dropping.

    So feel free to jump in and cool off as we experience yet another hot and humid weekend!

    May 19th was a ground breaking day for the Northland Innovation Campus with more than 100 area leaders in attendance. Gladstone's Downtown continues to develop and this will be its latest landmark. When finished it will be the home to primary and secondary education programs, businesses, as well as outreach programs from Northwest Missouri State University. Clay County's Economic Development Council has been intricately involved through its support for such initiatives as the Northland Center for Advanced Professional Studies (CAPS).

    Located in Gladstone's new downtown, specifically at the corner of North Oak Trafficway and Northeast 69th Street, the Innovation Campus will be home to Northland CAPS, a profession-based learning program for high school students from the Platte County R-3, Park Hill, Smithville, Kearney, Liberty and North Kansas City districts. Also housed in the building will be space for the gifted education program for NKC Schools as well as several programs for NWMSU. The first phase of the $20 million, 90,000 square foot education building should be complete for the 2016-2017 school year.

    NGC, the Northland Giving Circle, is a truly unique organization that has no fundraisers and only one membership meeting each year. Their grant for 2014, was in the amount of $30,000! Feed Northland Kids, provides Backsnacks to almost 3,000 kids each weekend every school year.

    The children from 59 elementary schools in Clay & Platte counties, would have little to eat on weekends without the help of the program. NGC's membership is open to women and men. Each member contributes $302.50 to join. That tax deductible contribution provides an annual $30,000 grant to a charity selected by the membership in an online vote.

    One of the best things about living in the Northland is having an organization like Northland Neighborhoods, Inc. (NNI) to assist in so many ways with so many programs. From Cop Talk to Senior Workshops to Leaderworks to the monthly Meet Your Councilperson - there is always something going on at or because of NNI. Deb Hermann and her team are always making a difference. Just last week, when school started and 90 kids did not have their immunizations, NNI and the KC Health Department stepped up and provided free immunizations to all 90 kids so they would not miss another day of school. Check out their website below and learn more about their various programs designed to help improve the quality of life in the Northland.

    Two of the best and most well established neighborhoods in KC's Northland, Carriage HIll in Gladstone and Carriage Hill Estates in Kansas City, offer buyers a nice variety of housing options in price points ranging from the mid-$100Ks to $450K+. Ranches, reverses, 1.5 stories, 2 stories, many with walk-out lots - take your pick. Take North Brighton to Shady Lane and you find the main entrance to Carriage Hill Estates, with new construction as well as wonderful resales. The award winning North Kansas City School District is one of the best in the area and one of the reasons these neighborhoods are so popular.

    This is a great spot to take a book and find a shady spot to read. Anita A Gorman Park, located at I-29 and N Oak is a Northland staple. One of the prettiest fountains in the city runs year round, is visible from the highway, and is a delight to see. Benches make a necklace around the fountain so you can walk up to it and take a rest while enjoying the awesome design of this water feature. One of the neatest things in this park is the Clay County Veteran's Memorial. Beautiful plaques are placed in a half moon stone-laid wall honoring our Nation's finest. Each of our wars is addressed and members of the military in Clay County are recognized. So, next time you are in the vicinity, take just a few minutes to park, walk the concrete pathway to the memorial. Contemplate. Then travel on toward the fountains. It's a beautiful parkway and a nice place to reflect.
  • Woodneath Farms is located north of 152 Highway. The address is Kansas City but it is in the Liberty School District. These homes standout due to the high quality of construction.

    Amenities include a pool, tennis court, play area and exercise trail. The subdivision is located very close to the area east of Liberty that continues to grow, making it very convenient to stop on the way home to shop or dine.

    Put this on your list of places to add to your wish list the next time the home buying bug bites.
  • So you have the urge to own a bike. I already owned a bike and two other agents decided it was time to ride. Where do you go to learn? Just as close as right behind our office at Maple Woods Community College. The class requires both classroom and on the course learning. Don't worry they provide the "bike".

    This is the best money you could ever spend. It will make you safe and help you decide if you really want to scratch that itch.

    So put on your helmet and leathers. Get prepared for the ride of your life. Or the ride that might save your life. Take the Motorcycle Safety Class at Maple Woods. Call 816-604-3011 or check it out at http://www.mcckc.edu/mwcycle/ Be sure to wave when we meet on the road.
