Lavon, a fifth grade student in USD 475, balances a feather during Garry Krinsky’s Toying with Science program Monday at the C.L. Hoover Opera House. Krinsky performed two shows, one Sunday for the general public, and a second Monday for USD 475 students. Krinsky’s program is aimed to teach kids about the laws of gravity and leverage, along with the principles of fulcrums and simple machines.

GRANDVIEW PLAZA — While looking at a shiny Jaguar XK-E Inside a cool ware-house filled with antique cars, D.E. Lacer took a trip down memory lane.“It’s such a good-looking car,” Lacer said the vehicles he purchased with his own money years ago while in high school.Lacer said experts consider it a “work of art.” One of those Jaguar sports cars currently sits in a Smithsonian museum for all to see. But there’s one vehicle car lovers world-wide won’t find in a museum — the cus-tom Manta Ray. If they want to see it, they’ll have to turn on their TVs and watch “Chasing Classic Cars.” The show’s host, Wayne Carini, recent-ly visited the Grandview Plaza warehouse with a film crew to showcase the car with a handmade fiberglass body. It was cus-tom-made by two aeronautical engineers in California in the 1950s and built on a modified 1951 Studebaker chassis. The designers planned to produce more models, but that work never happened. Still, they received recognition for their more than 4,000 hours of work. During a Los Angeles auto show in 1954, the engi-neers received a trophy and a cash prize from a local newspaper. Thereafter, the car with a jet plane-like front was sold to auto dealer Bob Yeakel. DE’s father, L.L. Lacer, acquired it in 1959.“You’ll never see another one,” D.E. said. “That’s the only one in the world.
One of a kind
One of the sure signs of economic prosperity are new houses popping up around a town. Take a drive through Junction City and it’s obvious this town’s housing market has seen better days. Compared to national trends, Junction City is an exception.Recent data from the United States Census Bureau shows an estimated 617,200 building permits for single-family residences were issued across the coun-try in 2013 — almost 100,000 higher than any year since 2007, during which 979,900 permits were issued.Junction City’s code department issued just 48 single-family home build-ing permits in 2013 — its lowest amount since 2007.In 2012, Junction City issued 112 sin-gle-family residence building permits. The city issued 110 in 2011 and 126 in 2010.Economic Development Commission Chair Ben Kitchens said three factors may have combined to create Junction City’s significant dropoff.“Number one, the demand for housing has dropped,” he said.That’s true even for current homes, said Century 21 Gold Team broker John Summers, who operates out of an office in Junction City.“The market’s off anywhere from seven to 10 percent in number of trans-actions,” he said, comparing 2013 to 2012 figures.The second factor involves Junction City’s neighbors directly to the east.“Number two, (Corvias Military Liv-ing) is building a lot of housing on Fort Riley, as they always plan to,” Kitchens said. “But with the deployments and the amount of troops on the ground ... they’re going to fill their stuff up first before we get other housing.”Corvias, formerly Picerne Military Housing, builds rental units at Fort Riley.The amount of residences the contrac-tor has built or plans to build soon has raised a few eyebrows in Junction City.“That’s why there’s been a lot of con-cern about the number of rooftops put up out at Fort Riley, even though they told us they were going to do all that,” Kitchens said. “Driving out there and seeing all of them, it’s very concerning when you start thinking about all the people that live there that maybe could live in Junction City.” Junction City’s third problem, Kitch-ens said, is more in-house.“We’re getting ourselves down to where the majority of the lots have high specials on them,” he said, referring to assessments. “And it just makes it cost prohibitive to take a chance to build a house to sell somebody and the buyer’s going to have $200 to $250 a month in specials to pay.”Summers believes Junction City’s market for current homes could rebound. He said one reason is because the avail-able houses are of high quality.“We think that it’s going to be a tre-mendous spring,” he said. “We think that there’s going to be a tremendous amount of positive things going on around the community, around the area.”There also are some positive signs to take from last year.“The very comforting part of that is our higher-end products — $170,000 to $250,000 — are holding their value com-fortably,” Summers said.On the other hand, the lull in new home construction still has quite a few people trying to explain the problem and identify a solution.Some business owners, especially those in the construction and building trade, would like to find a fix sooner
Housing market up, but not for JC
Tim Weideman • The Daily Union
Home construction sites in Junction City, such as this one on Foxtail Court, appeared quiet Monday afternoon as crews worked either indoors or took the day off due to cold temperatures. The lack of much activity was fitting for a town that came off a dismal 2013 for single-family home building permits.
“Number one, the demand for housing has dropped.”

Grandview Plaza residents have the opportu-nity in today’s sale tax to mark their ballots to either change a tax or keep it the same.The vote is regarding a percent increase of the existing retailers’ sales tax, which current-ly is set at one percent.Funds will be used to improve and maintain public streets.It will also be used for other general govern-mental purpos-es.

Residents to  vote on retailers’ sales tax today 
Car collection to be spotlighted on national program
Chase Jordan • The Daily Union
D.E. Lacer is looking forward to showcasing a custom Manta Ray car on a future episode of “Chasing Classic Cars.”
Shall a special purpose retailers’ sales tax in the amount of one percent (1 per-cent) be levied, in addition to the City’s existing one percent (1 percent) retailers’ sales tax, in the City of Grandview Plaza, Kansas, for the purposes of improving and maintaining public streets and such other general governmental purpos-es as may be in the best inter-est of the City to take effect June 30, 2014 and terminate on June 30, 2019?

Dr. Casey Thomas, a Junction City veterinarian, was named the 1st Infantry Division’s and Fort Riley’s newest Distinguished Trooper dur-ing a ceremony Jan. 24 at Fort Riley. The Distinguished Trooper award is the most prestigious honor that can be bestowed on a private citizen by post officials. It is given to recognize sustained, superior public service and contributions to the Fort Riley military community by private citizens. Thomas is active in a multitude of community activities. He supports Kansans for Strong Fort Riley, where he was a 10-year board member. He is also a member of the Old Trooper Regiment and Society of the 1st Infantry Division.
The Distinguished Trooper award 
1st Infantry Division Public Affairs
TOPEKA – It wasn’t a policy, politi-cal stance or promise of legislation that kept Kansans on their feet the longest Jan. 15, but, instead, the pres-ence of two of their own in the capi-tol.Capt. Adam Cowan and Capt. Casey Wolfe were special guests of Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback at the State of the State address.The speech was part of the new legislative session, which officially opened last week.Cowan is a native of Overland Park and serves as the assistant plans offi-cer in the 4th Infantry Brigade Com-bat Team, 1st Infantry Division Wolfe is a native of Tribune and served in the 4th Squadron, 4th Cavalry Regi-ment, 1st Armored Brigade Combat Team, 1st Infantry Division, before taking command of the Commanding General’s Mounted Color Guard. Brownback said Cowan and Wolfe were “wonderful examples of what it means to be a Kansan.“Kansas has a long and distin-guished relationship with our nation’s military,” the governor said, before recognizing and thanking the cap-tains.The senators, representatives and other officials who filled the state-house agreed, giving the two a lengthy standing ovation.Cowan and Wolfe not only repre-sented Kansas service members and the “Big Red One,” but also wounded warriors.Cowan was serving as the com-mander of Company D, 2nd Battalion, 16th Infantry Regiment, 4th IBCT, 1st Infantry Division, on Aug. 21, 2012, in Ghazni Province, Afghanistan. He and his Soldiers were on a two-day mission to gather information from locals about Taliban activity in the area when a firefight broke out.The 2006 Kansas State University graduate took a bullet to the right leg, which broke his fibula, severed his nerves and destroyed an artery before exiting. After months of surgeries and rehabilitation, Cowan was fitted with an experimental brace called the Intrepid Dynamic Exoskeleton Orthotic.Wolfe was on a dismounted patrol Dec. 18, 2011, in Central Zhari District, Afghanistan, when he stepped on a pressure-plated improvise explosive device armed with more than 10 pounds of explosives. He flew 20 feet in the air “like a rocket,” ending up 30 feet from the crater on his back.Although he wasn’t bleeding and remained conscious after the blast, it was later discovered he broke every bone bellow his left knee. Wolfe was given the option of amputation or an experimental limb salvage surgery. He chose the surgery, and with it came 15 surgeries and hundreds of hours of rehabilitation. He also wears the IDEO.Cowan and Wolfe said they were honored to be recognized during the State of the State address.They also met with Brownback in his office before the speech.“Obviously, the biggest honor was meeting the governor in his office just minutes before he began his address,” Cowan said, “and to share some of his thoughts on Afghanistan and Iraq, the Army’s relationship with Manhat-tan and Junction City, and what it means to be a Kansan.”Brownback was named a Distin-guished Trooper in July at Fort Riley. The award, the most prestigious that can be bestowed on a private citi-zen by post officials, is given to recog-nize sustained, superior public ser-vice and contributions to the Fort Riley military community by private citizens.“In Kansas, we honor our veter-ans,” Brownback said during his address. “We remember their service with gratitude and are humbled by their commitment to this great nation.

The mission of the Housing Services Office, or HSO, is to provide hous-ing assistance to soldiers coming to and departing from Fort Riley.“Our primary goal is to ensure that Soldiers get safe, affordable and ade-quate housing off post,” said HSO’s Chief, Elbert Newman.Whether coming from Fort Hood, Texas, or mov-ing to Germany, Newman said the HSO can help Sol-diers look for rental prop-erties, file paperwork and more.“A big concept of the HSO now is a global com-munity,” he said. “The biggest thing is, before (soldiers) rent something … check it out with us.”The office can reach out directly to landlords to inquire about specific properties and conduct inspections of off-post rental properties.“Our inspection is basic health and safety, to make sure the home is safe to live in (and) everything works,” Newman said.HSO personnel also look for fraud indicators to help protect Soldiers.“We frequently catch cases of rental fraud,” Newman said.If a property looks too good to be true, chances are it is, he said. An entic-ingly low rent might be for a building far away, cost-ing the Soldier more in gas money; or might be in an older building, costing more in heating and cool-ing.HSO staff can help sol-diers evaluate their options.Additionally, HSO can help mediate landlord-ten-ant disputes and investi-gate complaints as an impartial and objective entity.
Rental resources
In the past, HSO relied on the Automated Hous-ing Referral Network, or AHRN, for property list-ings.However, AHRN is no longer sponsored by the Department of Defense and is now on par with other commercially avail-able websites like Rent.com, SargesList.com, Craigslist.com, Apart-mentFinder.com, Milita-ryByOwner.com, Trulia.com and more, where any-one can list properties.HSO can however help Soldiers research specific listings found on such sites to help avoid fraud, conduct inspections and more.“If you find (a listing) we didn’t give you, come check it out with us,” he said.A new rental listing solution specifically for the military population is expected to launch in the summer.In the meantime, Sol-diers can consult www.emh.housing.navy.mil beginning Feb. 2.
Buying a home
HSO can assist Soldiers interested in purchasing a home.“In addition to (multiple listing service), we’ve got a local home guide,” New-man said. “We’ve got lists of all the local realtors.”Although the office can-not make recommenda-tions on specific realtors, it can provide guidance on the process of buying a home.HSO also offers home-buying seminars.Topics covered in the past have included infor-mation about the local housing market, mortgage types, available loan pro-grams, interest rates, title searches, home inspec-tions and more.The date of the next seminar has not been set yet. Those interested are asked to check with the office for future times.
Renting a property
For soldiers considering renting out their own property, HSO has resources available for that as well.“A lot of Soldiers leav-ing Fort Riley own a home here, and … they turn it into a rental. A lot of them think they can (deploy) and manage their rental property from there.
HSO offers help  with buying homes, renting properties
