Re: COVID19

Cool, but long covid is an actual thing that actually exists and is expensive to deal with both in monetary and human cost. Other viruses are the things that actually cause things like cancer, not their vaccines.

Looks like that would be the end of a couple of hundred affordble housing units.
Yeah, they even have a smattering of pretty new tiny houses.

Re: COVID-19 Casualties

I was wondering if some of the supply chain was affected by the big freeze, and Texas losing their water and power grid for an extended period. On another note, I haven't been able to buy 12-packs of Fresca for several weeks, and it's bumming me out. :lol: True, went to Trader Joe’s the end of that...

Re: COVID-19 Casualties

I’m not in KC, but we had milk prices just completely crash in April and May to like $1-1.50 a gallon. Just getting back up to $2.49 now. Always seemed in stock when I go to the store. Only pinch was meat and even then that was like two weeks.

Re: COVID19

Might be joking, but I’ve seen quite a bit of mental gymnastics between the equally idiotic sides that don’t like it because a) it was developed under Trump or b) Biden is pushing it.

Re: Unruh Furniture

A church with a congregation probably has more $$$ backing it than a yuppie furniture shop? I mean I agree it should be saved but it’s not like their insurance will be like oh yeah we want this rebuilt. The average congregation is 70 people with a budget of $85k https://sites.duke.edu/ncsweb/files/...

Good to see star bonds still alive. Why in the hell would a menards need star bonds. JFC. Already used them to pay for and now destroy a stupid water park built in the dumbest location anybody could possibly ever come up with for a water park. And now another youth sports complex.

Re: Layoffs at The Star

McClatchy is already trying to sublease half the space that they had built out for the Wichita Eagle just three years ago. 181000 square feet in their old building down to presumably about 8100 now is a pretty crazy reduction. https://www.loopnet.com/Listing/330-N-Mead-St-Wichita-KS/18510963/ Video...

Re: Westport

816 Hotel is no more. A business license was issued for Hare Krishna KC Hotel LLC dba Tapestry Hotel by Hilton for that site. A zoning compliance letter was issued in November indicating a sale. I expect a renovation will be required to meet the new brand guidelines. Not surprising, their 316 Hotel...
