Cassandra Mundt, Community Development Coordinator for The National Toy and Miniature Museum discusses the re-opening of the museum on Saturday August 1, 2015.

The National Museum of Toys and Miniatures educates, inspires, and delights adults and children through the museum’s collection and preservation of toys and miniatures.
HISTORY
The National Museum of Toys and Miniatures opened in 1982 as the Toy and Miniature Museum of Kansas City featuring the collections of Mary Harris Francis and Barbara Marshall. Operating in a building on the corner of 52nd and Oak on the University of Missouri – Kansas City campus, the 7,000-square-foot museum had two full-time staff members.
Over the next thirty years with expansions in 1985 and 2004, the museum grew to 33,000 square feet. During that same period, the collection increased to over 72,000 objects. In 2012, the museum embarked on its first public capital campaign to support building and exhibit improvements.
On August 1, 2015, the museum will reopen as The National Museum of Toys and Miniatures with the world’s largest fine-scale miniature collection and one of the nation’s largest antique toy collections on public display.

Getting In Trouble When Young, Can You Learn Your Lesson And Move On?

Juveniles can be tried as an adult as young as 12, 13 or 14 according to what state you are in. Any child psychologist and brain scientist will tell you that the human brain is not fully formed until sometime in your mid 20’s. So what can be expected of young people that get into trouble and end up behind bars? Should we treat them as juvenile predators with no hope of redemption or youth who have gone astray and need care and help to get them back on the right Track?

South Dakota Public Utilities Commision will be holding the FINAL hearings to decided whether or not to re-certify Trans Canada’s permit to put SD lands and waters the KXL through South Dakota. Be it on horse back, bike, or on foot concerned citizens from across the state and the region will unite and ride into Pierre crossing the sacred Missouri River to communicate that they demand better then KXL.

KOYA Rosebud Community Radio’s Perry De Cory and Robin Martinez, attorney for Dakota Rural Action, bring us up to speed.

::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::
Reasons from Informed South Dakotans against KXL (From the Keystone XL Resistance March and Ride Facebook Page)

“South Dakotans realize that there is relatively few hydrocarbon pipelines running through this state, and we want to keep it that way.”

“South Dakotans care about the air we breath, the water we drink and the land that nourishes us.”

“South Dakotans know a bad deal when we see one, when the risks outweigh the benefits.”

“South Dakotans want PUC to represent that we want to make smarter, cleaner energy decisions for the well-being of our state and the globalized world we are connected to.”

“South Dakotans won’t stand for misguided elected public officials to making poor decisions based on special interests and half-truths.”

“South Dakotans realize that investing in dirty energy that is soon to be obsolete is terrible long term business practice.”

“South Dakotans value resiliency, self-sufficencty and community centered decisions.”

“South Dakotans are outraged at bulling and manipulation tactics Trans-Canada.”

“South Dakotans realize that our greatest resource and number one economic driver is our fertile lands and water.”

“South Dakotans respect culture and earth protecting ways of the Native Sovereign Nations. We respect treaty rights and united voice to keep KXL and hydrocarbon pipelines off tribal lands.”

“South Dakotans seek out thoughtful and creative leadership who value future generations of all its citizens.”
