David Nieves of Reptile Education and Research got some “oohs and ahs” from the students at Platte City Elementary School last week when he showed them a South American Lizard he has affectionately named “Godzilla.” The show he put on with various reptiles is part of a cultural arts program sponsored by the Platte City Elementary PTA.
Heather Potts was crowned queen at Platte County R-3s annual homecoming football game Friday night. She is the daughter of Lawrence and Jan Potts and is involved in volleyball, basketball, track, NHS, band, Spanish Club, Science Club, Student Council and is a drum majorette. Her future plans are to attend and play volleyball at college. Since the homecoming had a western theme, it is appropriate to know Heather’s favorite country/western song is “The Devil Went Down to Georgia.” Troy Moore was crowned R-3’s homecoming king in ceremonies earlier last week. The Pirates celebrated homecoming with a 25-6 victory over Lincoln Academy.
Platte City Board of Aldermen adopted a budget for the fiscal year which runs from Nov. 1, 1992 to Oct. 31, 1993. The budget calls for income of $1,678,990 and expenses of $1,669,491. Rather than transferring the money from general fund leaving a deficit, the board approved the option to adopt the city’s solid waste committee’s recommendation and change the current commercial user fees to $8 per tip.
