Sign up for the tasting today!
We are open until 9:00 p.m. on Friday nights! Come relax, "unwine'd," and watch the sun set from our wine garden after the long work week! Have you seen our shade structures over the wine garden yet? We hope you love them as much as we do!

Joint Luncheon Recap 
by Taryn Firkins, PCEDC intern

The Northland Regional Chamber of Commerce held the annual Joint Luncheon in partnership with the Platte County EDC and the Clay County EDC on May 22, 2018 at the KCI Hilton.

The luncheon was sponsored by Hunt Midwest Real Estate. The luncheon had over 300 attendees including PCEDC partners, legislators and local businesses.

The NRC Chair, Rosemary Salerno recognized and thanked many legislators and executives as well as Ora Reynolds, Hunt Midwest CEO and President. Reynolds talked about Hunt Midwest's successes and future plans for Subtropolis (a business park) and single and multi-family, as well as senior housing.

The speaker for the luncheon was Keith Prather with Armada Corporate Intelligence. Prather gave the audience his predictions for the economy, things to ponder, and items that are not common knowledge that can predict and impact the economy.

unnamed (2).jpg

Prather explained how the economy is doing well, and should continue to do well for the next 18 months because of exceptional economic development. The GDP growth is at 3.3 percent, the strongest it has been since 2004 or 2005.

Prather gave insight on how private investment helped to prevent a recession in 2016 and how it can continue to do so. Other things to watch that can impact the economy include pace of change, accelerated competition, labor shortages, speed of disruption, the strength of the dollar.

The biggest indicator about the health of the economy is the level of optimism.

Platte County Economic Development Council will host its next luncheon to celebrate 30 years of success on June 1 at the KCI Marriott.

LET'S WRITE A SUCCESS STORY

Predatory sex offender faces multiple life sentences after jury trial

 Robert E. McDonald, 49

Robert E. McDonald, 49

A Coushatta, Louisiana, man faces multiple mandatory life sentences in prison for sexually abusing a young girl.  Robert E. McDonald, 49, was found guilty of ten felonies and also found to be a predatory sex offender on May 17 after a four-day jury trial in Platte County.

Platte County Prosecuting Attorney Eric Zahnd said, “This defendant preyed on a little girl, and she’ll live with what he did to her for the rest of her life.  But he will now be sentenced to life in prison and live with what he did to her for the rest of his life, too.”

On the day after Christmas 2012, the victim disclosed that, when she was between the ages of five and seven years old, McDonald repeatedly sexually abused and raped her.

A medical examination of the victim revealed physical indications consistent with sexual abuse.  The victim’s sister testified that the defendant had also touched her in a sexual way.

During his closing argument, the criminal defense attorney accused the victim, her sister, and their uncle of lying.  The victim was sitting in the front row surrounded by family and supporters.  When the defense attorney called her a liar, she began to sob uncontrollably. 

The jury believed the victim and found McDonald guilty on all counts.

Zahnd said, “The criminal defense attorney called this courageous young woman a liar.  I call her a hero.  She endured horrible abuse, but she was brave enough to confront her abuser in court.”

After the jury returned its verdict, McDonald, who was being held in the Platte County Jail in lieu of bond, refused to return to the courtroom.  In his absence, prosecutors also proved that McDonald was a predatory sexual offender.  That finding means he must be sentenced to life in prison on four of the ten counts.

McDonald will be formally sentenced on July 16, 2018.

Zahnd encouraged people to visit www.startbybelieving.org for more information on supporting victims of sexual abuse.

The case was investigated by the Cass County Sheriff’s Department, Children’s Division, and the Kansas City Police Department.  It was tried by Assistant Prosecuting Attorneys Chris Seufert and Blake Sherer.

A photo of McDonald is above. If you need more information, please contact our office.
