If you’re reading this in your paper on Wednesday, congratulations! You’ve been able to get to your newspaper this snowy day.
As I write this, my Joco backyard is a breathtaking web of snow-covered branches. The green pine needles peek out from white caps. All is still.
Inside, a different story. Kids are off from school/day care, entertained by dad as mom works from home. Bob Unell’s on-the-nose cartoon, Page 29, pretty much sums it up.
I hope you are able to get to your paper (or our website at joco913.com) to check out Diane Stafford’s piece about the Lenexa underground development Meritex. Like the well- known Hunt Midwest caves, this is a premier industrial complex deep underground.
Diane brings us all the interesting details about the businesses that find a home there. The high-tech secure storage facility and the National Archives and the furniture maker, to name just a few.
And how the development’s owners and the Lenexa Fire Department ensure safety.
Diane is known for her wide and deep reporting, her command of whatever it is she’s writing about. Her talents are on full display here, starting on Page 16.
Some 600 workers in the Lenexa cave are shielded from the weather’s whims year-round. Wouldn’t that be nice?
