Fort Leavenworth Frontier Heritage Communities
With beautiful evening weather quickly approaching, Fort Leavenworth Frontier Heritage Communities would like to remind residents to be conscientious of neighbors and realize that not all residents keep similar hours. What is a night of fun with friends to some might cause another neighbor a sleepless night.
Quiet hours are from 10 p.m. to 8 a.m. Sunday through Thursday and midnight to 8 a.m. Friday and Saturday. Residents should control the volume of music, pets and other noise at all hours.
The City Union Mission Christian Life Center of Kansas City has changed its normal routine for the summer months. From May through July, the mission will not pick up donations on the second Saturday of each month. Instead, the mission will be driving through selected villages on post Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. The second Saturday of the month pick-up day will resume in August.
On each village’s scheduled day, items to be donated to the mission should be placed curbside by 10 a.m. For each donation, the mission will give a voucher for tax credit that can be written off income taxes. The mission accepts clothing, furniture and other household items but not appliances, mattresses, cribs or carseats. Separate any bulk trash from donations and place clothing and shoes inside plastic bags marked for mission donation. Anything left on the curb Monday will be collected as bulk trash and not a donation.
The mission will pick up donations in Pottawatomie, Cheyenne, Kickapoo, Oregon and Upper Kansa villages on Tuesdays; in Shawnee, Pawnee, Santa Fe, Ottawa, Lower Kansa and Iowa villages on Wednesdays; and in Main Post, Nez Perce Village, Normandy Village, Osage Village, Infantry Barracks and Wint Avenue on Thursdays.
Reduce the heat. Begin cooking on a higher heat setting until liquid begins to boil. Then, lower the temperature and simmer the food until fully cooked. A fast boil doesn’t cook faster than a slow boil, but it does use more energy.
