Same storm was out in WKS last night and knocked down some dead/old tree's on the cat ranch.

No major damage and all cats seem to be accounted for

The bigger time farmer put on a breakfast with marketing swag?

It appears that way

Update. My dad reached out to the local land baron/big time farmer about leasing our land next year and the big time farmer invited my dad to a breakfast with all his workers/farm hands that they have every friday morning.

Tasmo (now called Tazee) and farm update from my dad.

Quote
Lil Tazee has wheels - moves right along.  Farm Kitty a mama, watches over, gives lots of tongue baths.  New mower won't go.  Bought it 30 days ago.  Ace hdwr calling mfg sending it for repair.  Monday call.  May need to haul it into Colby.  Attended Frahm farm location breakfast 7 am today.  Got a tour.  Gave me 2 coveted FFI (Frahm Farmland Inc) caps.  Finished pasture post installation separating ours from Rita's pasture.

Frahm is the thomas county land baron who we are distantly related to (grandma's were cousins or something).

Cross post from hyper detailed maps thread.

Any feedback? I don't have many stereotypes/judgemental labels for the Lee's summit/Blue Springs/Northland area since I never go there.

What other labels can we add?

don't like all trade/union workers live north of the river?

Blue springs I'd say is "people who have Ozarks weekend houses" all seem to live there.

"used to be italians now all Vietnamese" for Columbus park

"Gay guys remodeling houses" for Pendleton Heights

I put "Auto and Casino workers live here" up by liberty.

I'll trust your pendleton heights assessment and add it to the map but I think your off on Blue Springs. I view it  as more of a chiefs superfan/blue collar middle class type area.  :dunno:

(really just 80 acres but whatever)

Or wait it's that a HALF SECTION? :sdeek:
Yes

Looks like that time spent in Cali-FOR-NIA has eroded rusty's farming knowledge. I agree with SD that we better let the MAGA's keep planting/harvesting the crops for now.

Kansas is the center of a nation called Remainder? I'll take it.

KC would obviously be the capital and we could mush the crap out of Omaha/STL/Tulsa/OKC/All those shitty towns in central IL that have like 50k people that are now under our thumb.

do people normally irrigate milo or did he do this just so he could plant a chief's logo?

My uncle grew milo in our irrigated circle last year but didn't irrigate it very much since it actually rained, he also grew a bunch of it without irrigation on my aunts land next door.

Don't want to turn the chiefs thread into another high farm IQ mess so I'll post this here

That was pretty good, might take a crack at it tomorrow and use some of your labels. Loved the KKWHB  :lol:

Gotta add something for the casino's along the river. To fill up the northland more I'd put  "KCMO Cops live here" and something about Auto workers in Liberty.

the elderly and poor people with families and tight-knit immigrant communities.

Are there really many of these people left? Gentrification has been an issue there for forever, so I (perhaps falsely) assume that they're all basically gone already. I also always see the housing complaints coming from young, white, college educated people, naturally.

yes, there's still a lot of those people left. Rent control is a factor for some but there are still pretty dense pockets of Latinos in the Mission, Filipinos in Soma (although fewer of them are immigrants), and poorer Chinese in Chinatown. (Chinese are all over the city but there's a lot of wealth outside of Chinatown). They've pretty much displaced all of the black community to the SE corner of the city and a few housing projects but it's dwindling every day.



I remember when I first found the census dot map and was shocked at how many more Asians there are in California as compared to KC. It obviously makes sense that Asian immigrants would settle in CA but it wasn't until I saw it represented in the dot map format that it really sunk in.

Do farmers love anything more than having someone take an aerial picture of their house/barn?   Every farm kid I grew up with had one on the wall.

Planting Ponderosa Pines as a status symbol.

The twitter campaign has been ineffective.  When sports resume post-chip, it's time to move on to public irl shaming.

This would be easier if he was still a Big12 announcer, just plaster the OOD with "Gottlieb has Debts" signs when he is in the octagon. We could also take a page out of Testy Westy's book and heckle him while he is doing interviews etc.
