Our History Continues To Be Discovered . . .

posted May 6, 2015, 8:12 AM by Jonathan Carey-Voris   [ updated Jul 5, 2015, 4:32 PM ]

Robert Mayer on East Drive recently found an Animal Tax tag from 1978 when he was digging in his yard.  The text stamped on it reads:

     19  78
ANIMAL TAX
        45
   CRYSTAL
 LAKE PARK

Does anyone remember these tags?  How much was the tax?  Did it apply to all pets?  Was the "45" stamped on this tag a sequential number? (I don't think it could be an address.)

A photo is attached below.

Thanks, Robert.  What other treasures are buried? 

Friendly Snake Spotted in CLP

posted Apr 29, 2015, 8:46 PM by Jonathan Carey-Voris   [ updated May 2, 2015, 10:29 AM ]

Residents Bonnie Taylor and Lydia Ruffin reported seeing a large snake by Boland Bridge when there were walking their dog on the evening of April 28 and again in the same spot on the morning of April 29.  They were concerned because it is at least a yard long and is near where kids park their scooters on Country Club Dr.  They took a picture (see attachment below) and resident snake expert Greg King was able to determine that it is a King snake (no relation) which is non venomous and is a boon to the community since it eats small rodents.  So, if you see it, let it be.  It's a friend, not a foe.

For more information about the King snake, go to the Missouri Department of Conservation's web site:
