Kansas City Chiefs to train in St. Joseph

JEFFERSON CITY - State Senator Charlie Shields (R-St. Joseph) commended the Missouri Development Finance Board's unanimous vote today approving $25 million in tax credits that in part will be used as a vital step in securing St. Joseph and Missouri Western State University as the new home of the Kansas City Chiefs training camp. Shields has worked for several years to bring the current Wisconsin-based training camp to Missouri. The facility is expected to open in 2010. The bulk of the tax credits will go for improvements to Arrowhead Stadium, a publicly owned facility, where the Chiefs professional football team plays.

It looks as though we keep getting nothing but good news concerning the Chiefs, even after such a dismal season. I for one was very happy to see this coming to fruition. As a kid growing up here, my father used to take us to the Chiefs camp in Liberty. We always enjoyed it and always got autographs from the players (most are in the hall of fame now). I still have that autograph book and still cherish it and the memories of those days. This to me is a big deal for us the Chiefs fans and will bring back the dollars to us here in Missouri. I think it will also make a big difference in player attitudes, because it will be us the Chiefs fans that  fill the stadium on Sunday that will be there to watch them practice for the season.
