Basehor residents turn out in droves to recall mayor, 2 council members

A lot of you seem to have some misconceptions about the senoir living complex, Country Place Living has facilities in 6 states including Kansas and 9 facilities already in the state of Kansas. The Breurers' do not own this complex!!!! The group came in and asked for investors to make the project a success, in case you do not know, Pebble Brooke (owned by Bonee Enterprises) is the only 55 and older living community in the city. This facility would provide on site care for individuals that would need more than what Pebble Brooke can offer. It's also funny that when the low income housing project came in 2 years ago and asked for support no one, and I mean no one showed up to argue about it then and council (including WASHINGTON, DYSART, I'm sure MERTZ would have given his support also, if he would have been there) gave the development full support and the letter they were asking for to take to the state for tax credits, where in the @#LL were you all at then. From the January 28, 2010 Basehor Sentinel • Approved, 4-0, a letter of support for Garrison Development to apply for affordable housing tax credits to construct Southside Village Apartments at 155th Street and Pinehurst Drive.

Former Basehor administrator Loughry suing city for more than $500,000

I completely agree with everything you said...right up until you threw the college degree thing in there. You don't have to hold a college degree in order to hold a political office. You just need some COMMON SENSE!!! You can have all the degrees there is to achieve, but you can still be dumber than a box of rocks. Book smarts can take you far, but only so far if you have no common sense.

This is exactly what happens when people do not want to get involved in their local community and people like this run unopposed and take office.

Allegations, health insurance benefit questions preceded Loughry's firing

It's too bad that this many people do not turn out for the City Council meetings, maybe if they all did things would not end up the way they are. No one wants to make a change or have any input until the "Stuff" hits the fan. By then it's to late, everyone that has posted things about this, no matter how you view it or how you feel about it should begin attending council meetings then maybe you all can effect some sort of change, but posting things on a newspaper website, won't change the way decisions are made! Listen up America and make some changes at your local level then maybe you can begin to make changes on a larger scale!

Nicely put, It will most likely end up costing the taxpayers in one form or fashion, but I agree most of us just want the basics provided and kept up. Enough of the circus, conduct business and provide us the services needed!!!

Is the UG on KPERS? Are most the city's in Kansas on KPERS? If I read right the employees of the City of Basehor are not part of KPERS (they have a 401A plan) and are only kept in line wtih the ever increasing amount of the KP&F retirement plan, see council agenda, August 1, 2011. Since effectively KPERS is a garunted retirement program and the Basehor employees (minus the PD) effectively play the stock market, the 14% seems somewhat of a push, since we all now the volatility of todays stock market. I think since employee benefits were taken away while others reaped the benefits, maybe it should all be looked at again...these employees are not garaunted any kind of retirement benefits other than social security, oh wait, that doesn't even seem garaunted anymore!!
