Deanna Rose Children's Farmstead to open Monday without popular attraction

OVERLAND PARK, Kan. - There will be no baby goat bottle feeding Monday in Overland Park. The Deanna Rose Children's Farmstead posted Friday that they are a "go" for their season opener - their 40th - on Monday, but they are "no-go(ats)" for farmstead guests feeding baby goats after some of the little ones came down with "ecthyma," or sore mouth.

SZA - Broken Clocks is the song of the day and this is the OPEN THREAD for right now . . .


  1. Ass.

    How kind.

    Careful out there. KC did a crap job cleaning the streets.

  2. Least Overland Park deals with maintenance instead of like Kansas City and ignores it so they have a reason to tax you to death building another new shiny place after the existing one falls down.

  3. Nice is a bridge too far.

  4. I knew that comment moderation was an April Fool's Joke. What was funny was that this year Easter fittingly fell on April Fool's Day.

    What was really going on was Blogger not working properly.

    I don't know what perspicacious means, & I refuse to look it up. When you start showing off your vocabulary you cease to communicate.

    I'm only a simple peasant; use everyday words.


    After fighting for her right to bare all things, Adriana invites your revealing comments!!!

  6. Here's the deal--property values went way up this year, as recorded by Paul Welcome, the Joco appraiser. Cities and counties (not school districts) have one final year to seize the opportunity before the new state mandate that will henceforth limit their mill levy increases TO THE RATE OF INFLATION.

    Just because your home is now worth 20% more does not mean it costs 20% more to SERVICE the home by local government. Cities and counties are being pressured to lower the MILL LEVY on our appreciated homes.

    So cities in Joco are scurrying around like squirrels looking for high dollar one time projects like black walnuts. Find a project like the OP Convention Center and grab millions for general updating. Check off something on your wish list. Or transfer maintenance to a re-branded "special project". "Oh my gosh, who knew--this place is fallin' apart!" Jam that in the final budget before State Tax Armageddon.

    Kinda like gorging before going to your first Weight Watchers meeting. (Not that I've ever done that!)

  7. per·spi·ca·cious

    adjective: perspicacious

    having a ready insight into and understanding of things.
    "it offers quite a few facts to the perspicacious reporter"

  8. Regarding the Ks $2 billion school spending report, hooray to KCUR for good reporting.
    The report was cranked out in six weeks this spring.
    They made shit up.
    Dummy type (greeking) was pasted in. (gosh, how does one charge plagiarism when you steal from GREEKS?!)

    And, they included a map of Kansas--without Johnson County!!

    Talk about my worst nightmare...I escaped KCMO due to crime, but these research clowns now want to move the state line and annex me back to Missouri!

    I'm with Gov. Colyer--only sign a bill that ends this eternal legal nonsense forever. He didn't say how. I will. Change the law and get the STATE out of the education business. Let communities manage their own districts. Get the Ks. Supremes out of the bidness of thinking they are the untrained, unlicensed bosses of us.

  9. 9:33, if he wanted to communicate he could have used any of the synonyms you listed.

    Those are all everyday words.

    Meanwhile he rails against the elites?

    Adriana - " When's the last time you laundered those sweatpants, Fella? And are those 3X or 4X?"

  11. Damn Them Redlegs!4/2/18, 1:12 PM

    Trust me Tracey, Johnson County is NOT going to be annexed to Missouri!

    Under the current Mo. Constitution, that would require majority approval by both the Residents of the area to be annexed AND the majority approval of the residents of the Existing entity.

    NO WAY that Missouri Voters would approve annexing Johnson County, we foot the bill for enough facilities for you guys as it is!
