Equestrian facility to bring rural lifestyle to disabled
September 4, 2008
At first glance, it doesn’t seem as though anything special could occur on the plot about five miles south of Eudora. It is a mostly nondescript expanse of 40 acres framed by trees and gravel roads. There is a home, a small creek, a pond and the land has been graded. It makes sense that this is the spot where Community Living Opportunities would choose to build Midnight Farms, as CLO sees possibilities for positive outcomes where others do not.

September 4, 2008
Annette Cook already was busy. Her business, Amore Chocolate Pizza Company, was doing brisk business preparing for fall shipments and a partnership with a company doing wine tastings.
