Most of us don't have the willpower to ignore the cell-phone ringing while driving.  Teen drivers have an even higher risk of being involved in an accident while talking or texting on the phone.  In an attempt to improve teen driver safety one company is simply taking away the option of using your cell phone while driving.   Canadian company, Aegis Mobility, hopes to offer a service starting next year that informs a caller or texter that the intended recipient is driving and can't be reached at the moment.  Meanwhile, the driver would be oblivious to the call and free to focus on driving.   A downloadable software, called DriveAssist, use motion sensing technologies to determine when someone is driving.  There would be a feature to disable the service if the user is a passenger.  DriveA...

In today's economy we are all looking to stretch each and every dollar.  While, the economy in Shawnee, KS remains strongs we can all benefit from reviewing our insurance policies to make sure we are maximizing our dollars.  Ten strategies to reduce automobile insurance premiums 1. Reduce coverage on older vehicles. If your car is old and paid for, consider eliminating collision coverage, which pays for any damage you cause to your vehicle. 2. Use one insurance company. Group all of your insurance policies -- automobile, home or renters, etc. -- at one company to earn a multiline discount. 3. Raise your deductible, the amount you pay out of pocket when you make a claim. The difference between a $250 deductible and a $1,000 deductible can be substantial. Decide how much you can afford to...

ShawneeDispatch.com Letter: Council member seeks input July 22, 2008 To the editor: I would appreciate the opinion of Shawnee residents. At the July 14 City Council meeting, I made a motion to limit the City Council members' trips that are funded by city tax dollars to one per year without a vote of the Council for approval. The motion died because of a four-to-four tie as the mayor chose not to vote. The four Council members voting against limiting travel were Cheryl Scott, Neal Sawyer, Dawn Kuhn and Mickey Sandifer. The Council members that voted in favor of limiting travel were Dan Pflumm, Frank Goode, Michelle Distler and Kevin Straub. Some of the Council members that voted against limiting travel refuted it stating that the residents of Shawnee encourage such trips so the Council m...

I love this subdivision! Very close to schools, shops, nice homes for a great price... Prices are right around low to mid 200's. Their website is http://mfhoa.org/index.html This subdivsion has a great community atmosphere. Neighbors are friends, all of their kids play together, they have neighborhood block parties and some good annual events like a neighborhood garage sale. This area was definitely planned with families in mind, as most homes are on a cul-de-sac. If you don't know about the biking/walking/running trails in Shawnee you soon will if you visit this community. A very safe, active atmosphere allows for many fun family activities. For more info just call me!

When summer comes to Shawnee Kansas, the lawns start to green up and you can see people doing minature gardening in flowerbeds or containers. Hungry eyes desire greenery and the treat of a tomato or herb from a patio garden is a culinary delight.Shawnee, with a rich pioneer heritage, has a great climate for a little backyard gardening. The temperatures are slightly lower on average while the precipitation is steady through the summer. The wind blows a little more than average which is probably contributory to the general comfort level. Shawnee has maintained the pioneer and community character while being approached and working with the rest of Metro Kansas City.The team works well when considering schools, work and other cultural amenities.             I am ready to work with you for y...
