JCLifer, I agree with you, that mural is bad. But this B & B gets a lot of business from the Katy Trail. And people bike over the Missouri River on the Pedestrian/Bike bridge and they don't see the mural.
This B & B has a great reputation with bicyclists who bike the Katy Trail. I think the new owners are going to maintain that great tradition.
JCLifer, have you ever biked on the Katy Trail? It really is special. And a lot of people are planing trips on it now and looking forward to biking over the Missouri River to Jefferson City and spending the night, eating at a local restaurant, experiencing the local flavor of our community. The kind of traveler that is attracted to our community will love staying at a B & B like the Cliff Manor, and they will love places like Paddy Malone's, Arris Pizza, Prison Brews, O'Donohue's, The Mission, Yo Yums, all the neat downtown places, and everyone's favorite, Central Dairy.
This woman's bread is so good. I buy 2-3 loaves and freeze it for later. The only bread we eat when the Lincoln Farmers' market is operating is Renee's.

JCPSdad is right. Every organization I have ever belonged to has offered people the chance to get involved. And the people who say "What can I do?" are the ones who get things done, and have the opportunity to help the group achieve their goals, objectives and mission. Those are the people asked to take on positions of responsibility, and those are the people that take the initiative to give input (in person, not on a keyboard). Those are the people that make proposals, and invest the energy into seeing the proposals are seriously considered, and perhaps eventually implemented.
Dave, I think it is a fantasy for people to think their concerns expressed here are making a positive difference. Because we do not have to give our identities, we can say things we would not say if we admitted who we are. If anyone in a position of power reads this forum, they have to wade through so much foolishness, that it is really not worth their effort to spend time here trying to understand what the public wants. And other people that read our comments are not changing their opinions based on what we post. Intelligent people who are involved and in a position to get things done will use more reliable measurements of public opinion than any blog or forum.
The people who really make a difference are the ones that are actively participating. They sit in meetings and work with others on projects. They don't get everything they want, They have to give up some of the things they want, but they also accomplish some of the things they want.
I do hope that you will write a letter to the editor about your concerns. I reallly believe it would get to more people. This is a good time to make sure that as the school board re-groups, they discuss concerns about the school system. Personnally I would welcome hearing a discussion about many of the points you made in previous posts on other articles.
And just for the record, I am as disgusted with FOX "News" as I am with the liberal networks. As a matter of fact I dislike the liberal version of FOX so much that I don't even know or care what network it is.
Talking heads on Fox "News" like to accuse people who don't agree with them of drinking the koolaide. It discourages true debate. Just because someone disagrees with you doesn't mean they can't think for themselves.
I saw on the news tonight that Ortmeyer plans to work with the school board. I think he needs to put together a committee of people that opposed this issue to work to pass the funding needed to improve our schools. And you need to be on that committee.
JClifer you posted numerous times that you wanted 2 schools. But now you say "I cannot support bad ideas." So do you want 2 schools or not? Is it a bad idea just when someone says be part of the solution and not part of the problem? Sounds like an excuse to me. Hey, if you don't want to help then so be it.
A lot of people like to complain, and don't want to help make things better.
Connor thanks for your help.Whenever I read your comments (which I don't usually do) I walk away all the more convinced that the opposite position is the right one. I am disappointed that you failed to mention the feminist nazis that constrol the education system. I did get that right didn't I? They are feminist nazis, or is it ultra liberal feminist socialists? I get those dang feminist nut cases all confused.
Call them and tell them you want to participate. Quit making excuses. Get involved. Stop constantly complaining and start working with other people, even people you don't think you agree with, to develop a viable solution.
JClifer, you and I argue a lot on here. But you are apparently an intelligent man, you read a lot, you are informed. You have good writing skills. Use your talents and abilities to build something, rather than constantly tearing things down. I'm very serious and sincere. Call the school board and volunteer to help with the next proposal.
JCLifer, the next meeting of the Jefferson City School Board is Mon. 4/8/13 at 6:00 pm at the Board of Education. Their phone number is 659-3000. Contact them and ask to present your idea to them at the next school board meeting.
If you are not willing to do that much, then don't expect anyone to take your suggestions seriously. You and your friends can keep defeating proposals. We all expect that. You and others like you will eventually get the people working to make this town better fed up and give up. Good job on accomplishing what you are working for, it's happening.
But when you get on this forum and whine about how bad it is here, just remember, you helped make it this way.
