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:

CLP History Project--Help Needed

posted Nov 18, 2014, 12:10 PM by Jonathan Carey-Voris   [ updated Feb 14, 2015, 8:41 PM ]

CLP is collecting information, photos, remembrances, etc. for a history of our city which was incorporated as a village in 1938 and as a 4th Class City in 1957.  The goal is to publish a booklet documenting our history.  The scope will depend in part on the materials available.

We are still seeking newspaper articles, old Newsletters, and photos of CLP events such as caroling, Halloween Parade, picnic, slip-n-slide, pictures of families in front of their homes, etc.  If anyone has photos or information pertinent to CLP, please contact the City Clerk.  Materials can also be dropped off at Frontenac City Hall.  Please include your name, address, and phone number so the materials can be returned after they have been scanned.  Photos can also be submitted via e-mail to cityclerk@crystallakepark.org.
