Bringing Back the Brisket Dinner
Well, it’s been awhile since we held our
“annual” Brisket Dinner, so it is exciting to announce that it is back. In past years, we’ve
been known city-wide for this delicious fundraising dinner. Many of you have told me how
much you have missed this neighborhood tradition.
Mark your calendars now. This event
will take place Saturday, April 18th from 5-7
pm, at Open Arms Community of Christ. We
will have an auction or raffle and possibly
some live music. We will have take-out as
well for those who can’t stay and possibly delivery for those who can’t get out. Tickets will
be sold in advance for a small savings or they
may be purchased at the door.
Our Brisket Dinner Committee head is our
Vice President Marshall Sanchez this year. He
is already doing a fine job getting started, but
he will need many of us supporting the effort.
Open Arms will be partnering with us to
make this a great neighborhood event. We
depend on your participation as well. This
might include helping to cook, serve, cleanup. It also could just be buying a ticket and/
or enjoying delicious brisket with your neighbors or friends.
Our February neighborhood meeting,
Thursday February 12th 7pm at Open Arms
will be a planning meeting for this dinner directly following the election of officers for our
2015 term. We will have sign-ups for various
tasks for the brisket dinner. Come find out
how you, your family and neighbors can
Also, If you would like to buy or sell tickets
or make a financial contribution please contact our treasurer, Russell Hunt 833-4475. If
you would like to make a food donation contact Rhonda Hunt at 204-6577. If you are

City Ordinance SEC 118.15.005
Miss LeAnne have moved into the 700 blk of Vassar & 8th St Terr. She’s has relocated from Kansas
City. Here two children live here in Independence
so she can now be closer to them and her grandchildren.
Retiring from Kansas City government LeAnne
has a back ground in book keeping, working in
multiple departments including Neighborhoods
and Public Works. Fishing and helping to drive
people to their appointments is something she enjoys. She would love to do some part-time book
keeping or clerical work and only be semi-retired!
She is looking forward to dabbling in gardening
around the house and maybe joining our community garden. WELCOME to Bundschu LeAnne!

around 10pm. This driver lost
control of his vehicle, overcorrected and took
out a telephone pole. The pole snapped landing squarely on a neighbors car causing vehicle damage and taking out a good amount of
electricity for neighbors up and down the
block. The street was blocked until electrical
wires were safely put up on the new pole.
Thankfully the car unexplainably missed the
car right in front of the pole!
New Independence Crime Mapping Tool
The long awaited crime reporting tool to replace our previous is now online at
www. This FREE app is for anyone online to check out crimes city-wide by typing in an address, specifying a mile radius from that address and then customizing what types of
crimes you would like to search for in specific date ranges. Features include crime hotspot analysis
and other trending patterns of crime. I am still learning how to use it’s many features and customize
it for our use. You can also sign up for crime alerts to be sent to your email, daily, weekly or monthly
and chose crime types or other parameters. An easy to understand seven minute U-Tube tutorial is
online here: http://youtube/6Ny67I7e1VA

Ted’s Trash Service started business in 1960. Ted Ferrell was working the night shift at Leed’s GM plant, when an
acquaintance decided to sell his trash route consisting of one hundred customers. Ted and his wife, Brenda, decided to purchase the route and the rest is history.
As a growing business, Ted’s Trash Service became incorporated in 1972. Soon after, in 1979, their son, Teddy,
was responsible for continued growth of the company by initiating the roll-off construction container service and
the front load container service. Lisa, his wife, worked part time, while raising two children, Heather Jo and

For Goodness Flakes! For Goodness Snow!
Our Bundschu Christmas Party was a delight to young
and old! Mrs. K or Bryant music teacher, Laura Kirkpatrick led 5th graders in pieces from their Christmas production, FLAKES, where snowflakes get mixed with dirt .
“Ya take a little snow, add a little dirt, and
what do you get . . . S.N.I.R.T. “
We were reminded that some snowflakes are big, some
small and when they stick together they can be a snow-
ball! “Some come down fast, some slower, you
might like us best, if you own a snow blower”
Just as no two snowflakes are alike, we are each as special as a snowflake! Some of us mixed with more dirt.
After their amusing snappy songs, we gathered around
the piano and all sang traditional Christmas Carols. And
last but not least, we enjoyed some holiday treats and
caught up with neighbors. We sure missed those of
you who could not make it this year!
