Congressman Graves' letter (in the March 18, 2021 Courier-Tribune) trashed the American Rescue Plan, a bill that is sending help and hope to a nation badly in need of both. He is disingenuous when he says this bill does nothing to solve problems. The nation’s support proves him wrong; 76% of…
By now you have probably received one or two mailings touting the advantages of our district joining the Metro Kansas City Junior College District.
The upcoming City Council election gives Liberty the opportunity to choose an experienced community servant in Kelley Wrenn Pozel in Ward 2.
Anna Marie Martin has the experience we need on the Liberty Hospital Board. In her 40-plus years of living in Liberty, she has spent over half of that in public service to this community, including the past six years as a hospital board member.
On April 6, residents of the city of Liberty will be holding elections for city council. I am a resident of Ward 2, and as such, will have the opportunity to select from three very fine candidates for City Council. I write this letter to express my support and to encourage my fellow resident…

I grew up with Jeff Moore, a former city council member and a lifelong friend of mine. His passing was a tremendous loss to Liberty, and devastating to those of us who knew him.
I write this letter in support of Lyndell Brenton's candidacy for mayor of Liberty. I have known Lyndell for many years, dating back to my days on the Liberty City Council. I saw him then and see him now as an ideal candidate for public service. He is intelligent, experienced, fair-minded and calm.

Since his election as mayor in 2013, Lyndell Brenton has provided decisive and detail-oriented leadership to the city of Liberty. Always putting the community first, he combines sound judgment with imagination in formulating and executing his vision.
I am a junior at Liberty North High School and I am extremely concerned about the sudden decision to return to school four days a week in April; and I know I am not alone in this concern.
On May 30, 2016, my life changed forever. After years of a brave struggle, my sweet husband, Councilman Jeff Moore, died of pancreatic cancer. Following his death, Mayor (Lyndell) Brenton asked me to assume Jeff’s seat on the Liberty City Council. I was honored to be asked and graciously accepted.

Liberty is a truly special community. We blend small-town values, values we can be proud of, with big city scale and massive undertakings that always remember the little guy. We challenge the status quo. We build, we grow, we teach, and, most importantly, we never settle for being strangers.
With the year of COVID barely behind us, we look forward to the new year and the customary resolutions to reduce personal weight and reduce time on social media. (We should also) reduce consumption of animal foods. Yes, that.
