Freedom’ area marches on

Another milestone has been met in the quest for a National Heritage Area in eastern Kansas and western Missouri.

July 15, 2007


Just like the history of this region, it hasn't been an easy road, but the efforts to develop the Freedom's Frontier National Heritage Area are continuing to move forward.

It was announced last week that a team connected with the National Geographic Center for Sustainable Destinations had been chosen to help develop a management plan for the heritage area. As approved by Congress, the area will span 40 counties, including Douglas County, in Kansas and Missouri and help tell the story of this area's search for freedom from pre-Civil War time to the present.

Judy Billings, director of the Lawrence Convention & Visitors Bureau, said she was delighted by the choice of the National Geographic team and eager to get to work on the management plan. She also noted that she was proud that both Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius and Missouri Gov. Matt Blunt had agreed to serve as honorary co-chairs of the effort. Freedom's Frontier is geographically one of the largest heritage areas and one of the few that spans more than one state.

The support of the governors and local units of government will be important to the success of the Heritage Area. Both financial and administrative support will be needed to cover staffing and other costs of completing the management plan.

Freedom's Frontier Heritage Area is an exciting opportunity to interpret and share this area's significant history.

The lead investigator in the yellow house case has no credibility look what he is accused of. Now the cops are telling the media the yellow house owners have been selling drugs for 5yrs. and the business owners were charged with 2 counts of distribution to high school kids wow what a lie! Why are they not in JAIL ? Why were these business owners not charged with this at first ? where are the fencing charges? Why is it the arresting officers were NOT able to tell the Neighbors what they were being charged with when they were arresting them, why is it when the Neighbors were being arrested the officers did not have the arrest warrant in hand ? The yellow house owners were told by the IRS agent they were being arrested for Money laundering and this was not on the indictment. Could these DIRTY cops be angry because they have been exposed and could this exposure be the reason the cops have been telling LIE's to the Judge, and the media? Maybe the cops are mad because Mr.. Neighbors have 32 formal complaints on file against the Lawrence police dept. for police misconduct (illegal activity) Take a look at the yellow house owners indictment see link : Take a look at this Forged and SWITCHED out inventory list, WOW this has to be illegal: see link This next link shows when the Yellow house harassment first begain
