Johnson County Environmental Department Request for Applicants for the 2012 Green Business Awards

Johnson County Environmental Department Request for Applicants for the 2012 Green Business Awards

Johnson County Environmental Department is recognizing Johnson County, Kansas businesses that are taking steps to reduce waste and conserve resources. Johnson County businesses leading the way with innovative recycling programs, green purchasing policies and waste reduction measures are encouraged to apply for the 2012 Green Business Recognition Award. This is a self-nominating and noncompetitive award with applications due on or before January 31, 2012.


2011 award winner Bluejacket Flint Elementary teacher, Lucas Shivers, spoke highly of the program, "The Green Business Program helped our school systematically complete a full review of our current green practices and scale up in several areas to fully take advantage of sustainable projects."

2010 Award winner ConEdison Solutions successfully recycled 1,200 pounds of material in just one year, equivalent to 73% of their total waste. Employee, Don Flower professed, "The program is tied to the local business community, and because of that, the effort to green our workplace felt much more significant."

New Johnson County Trash Plan Includes Recycling goes into effect 1/1/2012 - City of Olathe is not Included in New Plan-

New Johnson County Trash Plan Includes Recycling goes into effect 1/1/2012 - City of Olathe is not Included in New Plan
Johnson County, Kansas has implemented a new trash plan that will start January 1st, 2012. The new trash plan includes a recycling plan.
The City of Olathe residents who are on their solid waste program will NOT be impacted by Johnson County’s new trash plan.  There will also be no changes for City of Olathe trash, yard waste, recycling and bulk pick-up collection.
The reasoning for the City of Olathe residents’ from being exempt from the new trash program is more than 35% of Olathe’s trash is diverted from the waste stream following the start of the citywide recycling service in 2010. 
The Johnson County plan is to enact the new trash plan with the goal of diverting 30% of trash from the landfill, which is less than what Olathe is currently diverting.
The City has collected residential yard waste separately since 1990, and began a curbside recycling program in 1997.  For more information, visit Environmental Services or call 971-9311.

Search is still on for Johnson County Community College Student., Aisha Kahn, who went missing from the Kansas University Edwards Campus last week

arch is still on for Johnson County Community College Student who went missing from the Kansas University Edwards Campus last week


It is a horrible thing to have a missing child. The parents, family and friends are offering the reward of $10,000 for the information leading to their missing Aisha Kahn. 


Aisha is a Johnson County Community College (JCCC) student who was dropped off at the KU  Kansas University Edwards campus on Friday to study for a final.  Shortly after being dropped off, Aisha made a phone call to her sister that a man was harassing her. Her sister came back and all she was able to find was her backpack and a few belongings according to reports.


Aisha Kahn was married in July and stays in close contact with a wide circle of friends and relatives, family members said, so it’s highly unlikely she left voluntarily.
The family has printed about 5,000 fliers and has been distributing them in the Olathe and Overland Park area. The family is offering $10,000 for any tips that lead to Khan’s whereabouts.
Aisha Kahn is 5' 2" inches tall, with dark brown hair, brown eyes and glasses. She wore a black jacket beneath a longer black and white coat, police said, and she may have been wearing her glasses. 


For more information, go to Aisha Kahn.

Overland Park and Olathe, KS. Rank Low on Crime According to City Crime Rankings

Overland Park and Olathe, KS. Rank Low on Crime According to City Crime Rankings
According to a new report on crime on America has some positive news for some cities in Kansas City like Overland Park, Lee’s Summit and Olathe. These cities are some of the nation’s safest big cities.
Kansas City, Mo. and Kansas City, KS., however, are among the country’s most crime-infested large cities.
This information is contained in the “City Crime Rankings 2011-2012: Crime in Metropolitan America,” a controversial annual compilation from CQ Press. The authors develop their rankings by using crime data reported to the FBI in cities of more than 75,000.
Out of 405 cities with a population of 75,000+, Overland Park’s was ranked at 38th lowest, Lee’s Summit was at 42nd and Olathe was at 66th.
These are some of the most affluent suburbs in Kansas and Missouri. All three of these cities have median household incomes of more than $70,000 a year, according to the latest U.S. Census Bureau information. The median housing values in all three cities were above $180,000.
Many cities in the Kansas City metropolitan area like Gardner, Lenexa, Shawnee and Leawood were not included in this City Crime Ranking report because the were short of the population requirement of 75,000.

As Crown Center is planning on opening an Aquarium, Mission, Kansas is planning a Press Conference today to Announce their Newest Development Including an Aquarium

As Crown Center is planning on opening an Aquarium, Mission, Kansas is planning a Press Conference today to Announce their Newest Development Including an Aquarium




The past couple years if a Kansas Citian wanted to view a huge saltwater aquarium, they would either go to the T-Rex Restaurant, Bass Pro Shops or to local saltwater fish stores like Midwest Reefs, Aquarium Wholesale, Piccaso Exotic Aquatics or Paradise Aquatics.


Day trips to Omaha, Oklahoma City and St. Louis would provide more viewing pleasures with bigger aquariums and more saltwater fish.


A couple months ago there was announcement of a large saltwater fish aquarium opening up next spring in the Crown Center area.


Today, the City of Mission, Kansas is holding a press conference to announce the approval of a new development featuring a 1.5 million saltwater aquarium. The aquarium will be operated by U.S. Aquarium Team.


For more information on the Mission, KS. saltwater aquarium, go to Mission Saltwater Aquarium
