A Recycling Center
in Raytown’s Future?
SPG Solutions, a small Raytown business owned and operated by Greg Walters, has made an application for a $100,000 Grant offered by Chase Manhattan, to help fund and operate a Recycling Center in Raytown.

The stated purpose of the grant application would be used to develop a community recycling center in Raytown, Missouri. The grant application is the first step for Raytown to have and keep a viable Recycling Center.

Chase Manhattan, through its Foundation, Mission Main Street Grants, will give two million dollars to 20 eligible recipients this year. Chase Manhattan is accepting applications from eligible business from across the country for 20 awards of $100,000 each for a start-up business.

The application process and acceptance to the program uses a three part process. Part 1 is the application, which has been completed and accepted by the Mission Main Street Program. The second part requires the applicant to receive a minimum of 250 “likes” on its Facebook Page by June 13th.

No Bake Banana Crunch Minis

As you guys might have noticed, we’re big fans of the energy bites trend going on … especially when they take the flavor of one of our faves, like banana bread, and turn them into a tasty healthy snack. Which is exactly what this recipe from General Mills does! (And if you guys haven’t tried the new Cheerios + Ancient Grains yet, you gotta. It’s getting rave reviews from us here at FBE!) READ MORE

Raytown needs a recycling center! I tried to click on VOTE NOW, but the mouse icon didn't change to a hand to click the VOTE NOW. The Face Book page it took me to was nationwide. Did I achieve the intended goal? 2 votes are registered.

I'm glad to see the new city council is listening to the people. A whole lot better than the other regime. Thanks.

Hey, does anyone know if the city is going to do the right thing and quit with that low grade street repair that uses gravel and tar? A lot of the winners in last April's elections talked like they wanted to go back to using asphalt. I hope it was not just a lot of political hype at election time. If any of them are reading this, please don't put that gravel and tar on our neighborhood streets. I went over to Southbrooke and saw what a mess it left behind. It doesn't look like it is holding up very well either. Whoever tells you it lasts longer than asphalt is full of it. And I don't mean they're full of asphalt!

I agree about the light aggregate or slurry seal. the surface is uneven and rough. The main problem is that you cannot tell if the gravel they put down is loose or stuck in place. I saw a kid go down on his bicycle the other day. Scraped him up pretty badly. A word advice to parents. Do not let your children ride their bikes on this junk. It is not safe for anything on two wheels. That includes motorcycles.
