B-2 The Kansas City Times Tuesday November 15 1988 Around Kansas City The Times Staff and The Associated Press Robbery weighed as motive in KCK trucker’s death CHANDLER Okla — Robbery may have been the motive in the slaying of a Kansas City Kan man whose body was found at a rest stop on the Turner Turnpike over the weekend state investigators said Monday The man identified as Dwayne McCorkendale 27 was found shot to death outside his truck at a rest stop at mile marker 31 near Chandler officials said He was killed Saturday afternoon or evening and the body was found about 8 pm Saturday said Roger Chrisco of the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation Six injured in crash on US 24 in Independence Six persons were injured one seriously late Monday when two cars collided head-on on US 24 in Independence The accident occurred shortly before 10 pm near Sterling Avenue when a westbound car crossed the line and collided with an eastbound car Independence police said The most seriously injured person appeared to be a woman taken to Truman Medical Center She was in serious condition a hospital spokesman said Four persons were taken to Independence Regional Health Center Their conditions were being evaluated late Monday but were not considered serious a spokesman there said The sixth person was at St Luke’s Hospital His condition was not available Fifth defendant pleads guilty in Missourian’s death SEDAL1A Mo — The last of five defendants in a 1987 slaying pleaded guilty to second-degree murder Monday and was sentenced to 30 years in prison James Quick 20 Sedalia had been charged with first-degree murder in the death of John Anderson who was shot to death at his home in Hughesville in March 1987 Quick pleaded guilty to the lesser charge in a plea bargain Pettis County Prosecutor Jeff Mittelhauser said Quick had testified against two other defendants Reparations sought for Gladstone effort By Mark Bocchetti Ot the Metropolitan Staff The Gladstone City Council majority showed its opponents a new move on Monday in a recall campaign that is looking more and more like a chess match Councilman C Milton Wallace countering the start of a new recall drive last week asked the city attorney to find out whether the City Council could force recall supporters to pay thousands of dollars the city incurred to defeat the first campaign “Since it’s a small number of people who forced that issue and they did it under the advice of counsel they have to face the consequences of that decision” Wallace said after the City Council meeting Fighting the first recall will cost Gladstone taxpayers more than $50000 Wallace said and the City Council should investigate whether the money can be recovered from 10 city residents who initiated legal action in the recall Most of the bills were incurred when the four councilmen whose ouster was sought hired seven private lawyers to fight the recall in court The city has not received all of the bills yet The head of the group that is trying again to oust Wallace and three other councilmen decried Wallace’s action as a “scare tactic” “These are scared men” said Bob McClellan chairman of the Concerned Citizens for Gladstone “They're just trying to use the powers of their office to intimidate and to take away our rights” Recall supporters who had gathered more than 4000 signatures on petitions on Aug 23 asked a Clay County circuit judge to put the recall question on the ballot after the City Council refused to do so They won at the circuit court level but lost on appeal Members of the group taking the legal checkmate in stride started a new petition drive on Nov 8 Members of the group gathered about 3500 signatures at polling places McClellan said “All these came on one day” McClellan said “We thought the response was just tremendous” McClellan said the group needs 4048 signatures this time Canvassing over the next couple of weeks should easily produce enough he said The petitions themselves have been rewritten to correct the shortcomings identified by the Missouri Court of Appeals McClellan said The court found the petitions deficient because they did not cite specific acts of the council majority as reasons for recall The reasons cited primarily deal with the firing of former City Manager Patrick J Reilly and former City Counselor John Dodds Independence council OKs negotiations on power lines By Beverly Potter Of the Metropolitan Staff After months of discussion about where to put high-voltage power lines opposed by residents concerned about health effects the Independence City Council on Monday took a small step toward establishing a partial route for the lines The council agreed to ask right-of-way negotiators to talk to 26 residents along Hardy Street to determine how much they would accept in payment for either overhead or underground power lines along their street If residents and the city agree on payments to compensate for the lines some council members said they would install the 161-kilovolt utility lines from the city limit along US 40 to Hardy Street and then north to a power substation on 35th Street But Councilman Jim Ruhlman who has sided with residents opposed to the lines said he did not think residents would agree to overhead lines for any amount of money because they were concerned about studies saying that electromagnetic radiation from the lines might cause leukemia in children Dr Sanford Cockerell a physician opposed to the lines said he thought the council was trying to “divide and conquer” the residents by proceeding in a piecemeal fashion with the power lines Utility officials originally proposed that the lines continue east on 35th Street to a substation at Lee’s Summit Road but hundreds of residents opposed the plan at a council meeting After reviewing several alternatives Senior Utility Director Jim Harder on Monday again recommended that route But Ruhlman opposed the route He said residents had promised to sue the city if it proceeded with its plans “If we get tied up in litigation what have we gained?” he asked In a compromise move the council agreed to seek approval from Missouri Lottery Monday night’s winning numbers in the Missouri Lottery’s Daily Pick 3 game: 7-3-3 Straight-play winners collected $500 each box-play winners won $160 each residents to install the lines along Hardy Street which Harder said would help the utility for several years That move would give the utility time to develop a permanent solution he added The high-voltage lines are needed to import power from Kansas City Power & Light Co and Iowa Public Service Co city officials said This week on lpt&iL “Heart SURGERY: The New Choices” Saturday on KCPT-19 PublicTelevision at 5 pm Repeated: Sunday at 4 pm Tuesday at

Wyandotte County Commission’s handling of a plan to pump up to $5 million in county financing into improvements for Sandstone Amphitheater drew criticism Monday night from Bonner Springs city officials During a special meeting council members and city staffers voiced concern about the “quick and quiet” way the commission last week approved general obligation bonds for the project Although Sandstone an outdoor music amphitheater is within the Bonner Springs city limits none of the council members said they were aware of the county’s plan to help the private business before it was approved But because the county is issuing the bonds officials said Bonner Springs apparently could not have a big role in the decision Bonner Springs officials can however strictly enforce city building codes and construction permits That action started Monday when the city halted grading work on a Sandstone parking lot because no permit had been issued City Manager Bob Evans said the required paper work was submitted at 5 pm Monday and a permit could be issued in the next few days The County Commission last week approved $47 million in temporary notes for Sandstone The notes commissioners indicated would be paid off through up to $5 million in general obligation bonds World Entertainment plans to use about $2 million for capital improvements about $1 7 million to pay off outstanding debt $550000 to establish a reserve or contingency fund and about $600000 for other matters World Entertainment Services Kansas a limited partnership formed last month has agreed to pay the county for those bonds If that corporation fails to meet its payments the responsibility falls to its general partner Sandstone Entertainment Group Inc If that group fails general obligation bonds are backed by county property taxes which means residents ultimately are responsible to pay them off That prospect concerned some of those at Monday night’s meeting because little is known about either of the two groups — especially their financial backgrounds Jack Reardon a county commissioner-elect who sat in the audience asked why no financial statement had been released showing fhe collateral put up to back the bonds City Attorney DH Corson Jr said the corporations were required to submit that information only to those handling the bonds “If it appears our information is a little sketchy” Corson told the council “it is” 753 2626 lldZd 47TH & WYANDOTTE 24)4'4:30F74)O-9:30 IPGI3I awa-tiwi iroi 2:1044:401-7:10-945 l JYINTBDXU OOSMNGOBANtn GOOOMOTHEtti Antioch 5524 nVaNTOCH
