“Special pothole mix” sounds to me like a sales pitch and sLIE is stupid enough to pay them 10 times what it’s worth.

Were battling those potholes like George Brett going after an umpire. And it won't cost the taxpayers a dime! Happy drinking!

I do not believe a half million will be enough for a decent rehab of the old tennis club. Those old stone buildings are beautiful but electrical and plumbing upgrades will eat up that amount of money almost immediately.

Thanks to Bowen for using their crews and their resources to help out people (drivers) in Kansas city. One could only hope that other companies take note and remember this when they bid on contracts in KCMO. They make enough off the big jobs to throw a truckload of cold patch in some holes. But don't worry about the holes in the bike lanes, it is a waste of time because they are called assholes not pot holes (although they could be doing some pot too).

Re Eric Barry.

All I know is to come back from cancer and go out in a nfl game the man has the heart of a lion. He’s lost a step but damn, he’s a cancer survivor. Hope there is a spot for him somewhere on a football coaching staff or in the booth or something. Amazing.
