But I urge you to support. The new airport here you can't see new terminal. You've probably read much about it that it is going to be huge for Kansas City as far as economic development. A more flight options and growth here in Kansas City and jobs for. For all different types of folks so I've been following it very closely and I would say that I'm hopeful that the casings or voters. Go out there and vote on November 7 and support a better case CI. Just as convenient and I think for me the most important thing is you know we're knocking me give more flights are marketing grows and airport unless we do this and so. I think that you know having more options when he traveled more nonstop options from Kansas City is a huge bit thing. As well as modern conveniences people think parking is the only modern convenience when you're gonna get that but also TV you're gonna have to be used as with with regards to you. Food options. Technology options. That's seating options the whole the whole nine yards so. And in one thing that's been exciting to see in Kansas City is the business communities are very behind this and they wanna grow. He has the job market and they wanna grow opportunities for everyone here in the city and I know that. I'm new PCI terminal would do that and what helped Kansas City continue to move on. In the future and then the next generation some hopeful that everyone gets out of votes on November 7 in Kansas City, Missouri fanatic can see Missouri resident. Tell your friends to go vote and get involved in the process. Nokia and city issues are important folks and I think a better case dies is really crucial for a better Casey region as well.

I'm doing great doing great Jason wanted to say thank you for giving me an opportunity to come on you're so I really appreciate it yeah I'm and I really appreciate you coming down here today. First off let's let's get to know you little bit before you into which are working on Telstra your back I know you've born raising kids sitting there. I was born and raised been living on fortieth to blame all my life where is an area just for a listeners who that is in between who was say we armed. West. Seven you won in east of the sale so we're right in between the sale. In 71 and guidance so right around 4039 street which is kind of a a well known street here in Kansas City kind of crosses through there and did so over somewhat close to. A deal on road. I guess a little little little away far away yet a little bit slow Wesson into combat eased a little bit does it does make those landmarks of the sale. In seven new line and buddy nice streak to write him at twenty really those dissidents and anyone highway there it's okay. She grew up in that area grew up in that area. And as I grew up by I notice I've grown up as a kid. Aryeh was really really blighted Aminu was just a lot of abandoned houses. A lot of trash dump trash dumping and it was just bright it blighted as I grew up as Q and it it you know before. Will we are grown up. At one point this area was super great right taxi industry wasn't as it wasn't. You know and in the progress of Kansas City I'd have to say obviously that area was. What are the highlights this and said that the story that my father always fills is that arm. Used the first black. To move on fortieth and my when he first came to Kansas City. And he said the moment that he came. It went down hill everything. No really bother how is still a yeah where well how long ago was we then. And I can't remember the year he came. Two Kansas City always tell us the story about that all the time but I can't actually remember the years when he first came. Two cancers such says its end C area so you're saying it was bloody when your kid yes win. I grew. They had deteriorated really bad and it was just really blight. Mean I'm a father started buying up there. Bind up the land and buying up houses. And I can remember as a Q when I used to see people move out. Obese or none of ports and I would be slightly and I know this guy is during go buy some more grass because I had cut the grass have been cut this grass for the south continue to look at everything I was so moved out I knew I was gonna be couldn't book written and so. You talk about boarded up house is blighted house's move you know in that neighborhood road it still to this day still to this day. But what one in my talent is was removing those blighted houses and I really felt like if I was able to move on some of those. Blighted houses along what my father spawning. Wait before I was an adult. I've seen if I was able to. Move some of those blighted houses that I would maybe be able to make a difference. What what's the name of the neighbor to give us this Ivanhoe neighborhood whenever you have heard that before yet OK so. You grow appear. Which school where I assume this I want to let sport was sport high school high school. And I didn't play basketball. At Westport at all. Where I actually got my chance to. Be introduced to sports is who the mayor tonight hoops and ruling yes the list my hope is that Emanuel Cleaver sir yes America main nuclear restarted and then what happened is I would always put together a team. In we would be competing against Penn valley ski okay. In we would really put our hands on its. You do well probably after the third year that coach actually. Gave me a scholarship. From playing a night hoops to join the pin that was yet no well. And see every play until it's okay displaced people share right now. So bass smallest huge. And that's interesting so he went to escort. What what do you do for career. What I do now pays the bills you know what I do now is our home the homeless I world Ford Truman medical center and we run a program where. We partner with hood. And what I do is go out and build relationships throughout the city with landlords. To. Bring an homeless guy our young lady. And house them and that will put housing specialists on them will put a case manager on him and we're trying to. Just give them. Introduced to live in and home. Truman actually pays for they rent. In that we were conditioning them to. Going to society. Of not being homeless anymore so we're trying to do their minds there immediately and just a normal life as we college. How to that's interesting I didn't know anything about that program seems to be VA successful program would be right very successful very successfully right now housing. Semifinal Klein. What's with the overall take right now on Kansas City until almost population because you. When you travel other places you know I find it I was on California last week in in in Oakland and that city grown because of the people are moving from several Cisco it's too accessible there it's getting real expensive and Oakland but. They have a homeless population and it's all kind of in one or two areas where you're seeing tents and everything. But as far as Kansas City I feet maybe it's as a more spread out but you don't see population of homeless people all of one play it's black but there's. Many homeless people and incidents Elton Lou absolutely. And not think Truman has done a tremendous job of Ervin those numbers as well. Shot determines you work on that every day every day that's my every day it's what what's when you when you when you meet the almost personal on what do that would today. They communicate Q what is their biggest issue what do they think when you reach out and say can I vanity she a true McCann we could reach you know home of what's there. Well our power that you know why they dislike reunion via there's no different the just slightly and you conversations a slightly new us. They're really there's no difference at all. There's no bid approach what's what's the what's the the most things you hear about. Why they're in the situation what's what's the biggest issue here. Wolf what I what happens is live to hell I do think some type of addiction. Some things in that manner. But again. As as me working men that feel I look. Everyday person that has a house. They have some type of its addiction they have some type of mental illness open to me I just all in all up in one. Man I look at everyone just same because I go and talk to someone that has house they have addiction and some behavior helpers will no doubt everyone has their own issue everybody has their own issues so as me looking in market and in that field. Everyone is just the same to me. Mean I like that. Chris Harris is our guest. Amazing being generic term not even know about that but I think that's a really cool under whereas Germany Ginn furloughs or lose on a Tony 301 home. Because that's over there kind of by. Near.

You know I look at it and in this century to seeing you say green space to mean. What. Just making their beautiful greens that space and that. And my goal is to use sports to make a beautiful green space. Contains the scope of landscaping. In the NC. And I can get my landscape right in using sports as a catalyst to bring people in fear what things can be done. This would beautification. I just thought that was the most beautiful playing in the world to help clean up the inner city. In your park terrace park is a organization did it dedicated her receipt keeping urban Childress and outdoor sports you mentioned. Bass to a level of golf and pickle ball. And really it is also to help develop sportsmanship honor and display which your skills needed drive and a growing. Comedian in and really build structure. An organization right. Yes absolutely. Are you come into the neighborhood and you provide a little structure. You do it in the nicest way possible I believe the structure came from me trying to clean up. I think the key it's the community adults everyone bought into the structure mama in the leadership that I tried to bring by just simply. Given them something to do including an. Am and it really helped that would structure so. You baba to sing and Tom tell me about this you know I. I went where where I get my inspiration in his writing overthrew Mission Hills. I used Iraq to Germany and firm that is the Kansas City through that neighborhood weather from east south north west part of the country they. They see those old homes and AC kind of this Belgian golf courses and it's it's pretty amazing place absolutely. From coming over their. And at some a lot of questions and acts and how. You build a green and just getting all the information in all the knowledge. That I possibly can give. I was great attempt to do it and I knew I could have done it in do you want my zoo we're gonna you were gonna do this is like I'm putting her in the first turn you and you we're gonna do is build it yourself this absolutely did build my. So so. To take this to the next level and you. Spent the summer at Mission Hills country got Brett yeah yeah time to try to learn added to build a golf course and look. Actually went over and I kept answering questions and then at the time I believe his name was bred. Actually that I know anybody that wanted to adopt. And I asked him what time and he told me what Tommy wanna I wanna tomorrow and build a golf she knocked on this country code or you say hey I'm Chris Harris yeah. What what was the response we you know if you don't mean that make got a Ghazi Chris I mean I've played golf in different places around town and and Mission Hills is kind of an it's got that old school absolutely no I do are you what are you doing here I think I came into the different approach I came in and does X. Now a can add to excluding groundskeeper. And I just products what's. And I told him commit combat in the absence of more questions. And he was very open to all of my questions and then actually heat. Paying in kind. Over to depart because he was so curious of what I was trying to I'm when he came over to the part we actually just literally built the French. The fans and I just hope it's on the grounds keeper emotional yes and I told him that I would like the pick of jobs like arm. And then the most funniest thing happen. They had a flute. Mean that year and so they had to ten one of the green and completely rebuilt. Mean I got to watch the re we have two greens and pin every day. And that's where the fake and Oka I see in them purchase the fan I've seen from day. Laid the greens than I was at my notes and I was doing the exact same thing. That they would allow this so that's how I how to do the greens Oca and I went public with the newspaper pain. Went public when I was doing and and that's when a lot of doors open men and that's when I got a call from the PGA. And they sit joints of the PGA seizure article or hears about it yet. Guided has no golf experience right and you've you've done the Mission Hills thing. You have delay and and you're thinking yourself you get a call from the PGA open is Elie you know I just sit there and they like it took me probably. It probably about some was wrong would mean because. I didn't return a call back for about two week his daughter was that what Donna was there I don't know I just couldn't really couldn't be happier with fellow in the dog the media about what is going. That make sure I get but vault again Chara gave them column back. And that waited for about two weeks to go out and makes it. And what was that process like wouldn't intimidate just by mean. This is is this happening other places it's pretty innovative and you know I'm not sure. Is this happening in other places but all I know as well and I started going through processes. Give them club which via. I had everything needed and it was indeed ago. The world was zero what was your pitch to them and talked to some archival lay out what your thinking here that this court has at this time what I was thinking it was just doing it at whole. Putting green. Got him on real gray albeit. Hold non disclosure do when he Buffy. There's a whole mix oracle didn't when it it knows do putting greens on nine program none of Coca. Sit down and start talking to the PGA. Golf association of involvement but introduce me to lot of people in this week. They came up me help me out with them now. Does. Well hell week design. And it ultimately included Sonoma now now hole. And this thing has just started getting bigger and bigger than if you're familiar like it would implement an opening. Act them out. That had no intentions of how's that is built. In green on real grass right next door to. And they were kind of more in the mindset of hey let's let's have some actual. Just being in India and in irons they they just. I guess I got to see a much Landis is really got to drive down there it seemed like a falling and they brought it to my attempted to make this the real deal mean. And so. Where and your mindset now where does that stand as it is a nine hole course or what does this is going to be a non hope it's who go in but who. Yeah that's always a thing you know we think about urban areas how we thought to be cool before top golf analyst Liz existent. You go to Chicago or you get a big city. They have urban driving range Lucy you're in it you can be in Westport you can be and wherever our eyes blurred the skyline downtown. And they have these these these urban driving ranges and I think is key as he continues to grow and we have topped off our mission and in Hollywood but. I always thought they'd be cooled have some more in the city you can actually hit golf balls because they're where else's. You know less year of super rich even afford one of these these golf clubs. Up by the plaza whatever you're driving this covers basically at a golf ball but now. And what you get this done you're going to be able to hit and forty the wave in what right in the heart of inner city is so if your child. In year you know. Mid to do this to baseball to lose the urban youth academy right up there on eighteenth OK and that that's gone taken over Major League Baseball decided no we're gonna. What did they donated some money it yeah and a million dollars I think to help build that feuds Mayer's gotten behind it yet is I actually ran by the India today. But but my point is is that you mentioned basketball. And there's other sports that you would introduce your community to baseball. African American player in baseball is is way down right Vincent's. Whatever the seventies and eighties it's it's dropped golf obviously you know he had Tiger Woods and he kind of spearheaded. A whole new generation of golfers but. In the economy. Tanked in golf is not that he keeps workplace absolutely and if you're an average golfer. He goes on a golf balls cook you know you're gonna you're gonna have to you have to buy club you have to eyeball drift. Pay for your Greenpeace you can't pick your car pieced. So it is not easy to play especially if you're you're you're for right and so your point is. These these adolescents come in Macon Macon and they can direct club to what do they did. This what do PGA comes in okay has offered to help out with giving me. All the material. A while they have also. Stated that they could help out with courses of teaching and help lift it course they were teaching it. And then luckily lessons are few junior can I never had a jealous of people that did you play at a young age you know me. You put so much better as you get older we do you have training and is an a young person. Most golfers don't mess the midwest Biggio as well. You know and they they've been saying that if if needed that they would help now fund raise this would mean meant to that they're coming to the to the plate and help so I wanna mention to before we're gonna break for a last segment is you mentioned that you were gonna do this yourself. So who's gonna do it now Chris Chris I know that a guy by the name of Kyle Clark from CE golf designs. As already made a diagram you are not can be due in the city so you could do it absolutely what you learned a Mission Hills and the grounds keepers but you're gonna. You're bringing that some professional help but to be awesome yes I've and an MS very well needed I wanna take that part off my hands that I got so much more wanna do. I just wanna make sure no one knows sports that the catalyst there. Cleanup in this whole thing is to for introduced. On the inner city to new things educate in the city and unified.
