City Living in Country Style!

Right Place, Right Time, Wright City”

Wright City, Missouri, is located along Interstate 70, about 45 miles west of St. Louis. As part of the westernmost portion of the St. Louis Metropolitan Economic area, Wright City not only provides a country setting for housing, but a potential for economic growth that is attractive for those businesses seeking to cater to the needs of a residential community and facilities for light to heavy industrial businesses. Primarily single-family, with some multi-family housing, Wright City provides a peaceful, semi-rural area in which to live, yet is within an easy drive for the major sporting and cultural events of the St. Louis Area. A wide variety of homesites are available to serve almost any lifestyle.

The History of Wright City

The City of Wright City was platted as a village in 1857 by Doctor Henry C. Wright on land granted to Dr. Wright in 1831 by the United States.  The village was platted to take advantage of the new North Missouri Railroad which was constructed in 1857.  Dr. Wright built his home about 1860 on land that sets now at the corner of South First Street and South Locust.  In September, 1863 the Wright City Raid took place during the Civil War.  The Baptist Church, Bryan’s Blacksmith Shop and Kennedy’s Saloon (all known to be places where Southern sympathizers congregated) were burned to the ground by Union Militia.  The town of Wright City was incorporated in 1869 and became a fourth class city in 1941.  Wright City, a thriving community doing business through the railroad, then with the advent of automobiles Highway 40 ran through the center of town bringing motorists and businesses catering to them.  In the 1950’s Interstate 70 was constructed, bringing a whole new group of businesses. Today, Wright City is a growing community with the advantage of the railroad and interstate highway.

Welcome to Big Joel’s Safari Petting Zoo and Educational Park!

camel

-We will be open for the Labor Day, Monday 9/4 from 9:00-5:00pm

(This will be the last Monday we are open for the 2017 Season)
-Big Joel’s Spooky Safari begins September 28th and goes until the last day of our 2017 season on November 5th.

Picture
Big Joel’s Safari Petting Zoo and Educational Park is the “zoo made for you” and is the premier animal-based attraction in the area. Big Joel’s is a family-owned farm and attraction, that is open this season from March 26th until November 6th. We opened the doors to our private menagerie to the public for the first time in July, 2012. Since then thousands of visitors have come to Big Joel’s and they keep coming back for more. Big Joel and his family are continually improving and adding to their park every year (and sometimes during the year!).
Come and see all types of animals from mild to wild. You can touch and feed many of our animal residents, and view the rest up close. Some of the animals you’ll see include majestic bison, watusi cattle, zebu, aoudads, camels, zebras, llamas, african porcupines, ostriches, emus, parrots, reptiles, and a variety of deer, elk, and antelope as well as other farm animals. Big Joel’s Safari now cares for well over 60 different animal species, both big and small! The great thing about Big Joel’s Safari is that you never know what you’ll see or learn on your next visit as there are always new-born animals, new species, exhibits, and things to do. Besides visiting with the local animal residents at the park, you can relax on our picnic benches under the pavilion, enjoy the scenery, shop or grab a snack in our gift shop.
This is a family-oriented and educational experience you won’t soon forget. So come on over for a change of pace away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Come and see what thousands of visitors are talking about. This is not your typical petting zoo and It’s sure to be worth the trip, as we aim to make your experience a great one and the animals love the attention, too!

Hope to see you then, Big Joel and MiMi

Text-to-911

Citizens in St.Charles County now have another option to reach 911 during an emergency-by text.  A call to 911 still is the preferred form of communication during an emergency, but there may be situations-a home invasion or a domestic violence incident, for example-when texting for help is safer.  Additionally, it can be used by those who are deaf, hard of hearing or have a speech disability.

Texting 911 is simple.  Enter the numbers 911 in the “To” field of the text message on a mobile device.  Then, send a brief message: location and type of emergency.  For more information about text-to-911 and the new 911 system, please visit:  www.sccmo.org/EmergencyCommunications.

Wright City High earns bronze rating!!

For a third year in a row, Wright City High School has been recognized as one of the most distinguished learning environments in the state.

As part of its annual ratings, the U.S. News and World Report awarded the school a bronze medal, ranking it among the top 146 schools out of over 500 in Missouri. In general, schools are ranked based on their performance on state-required tests and how well they prepare students for college.

“This sustained academic achievement is a testament to our fantastic staff for really putting an emphasis on teaching and learning, as well as to our students for working hard to respond to the high standards set by our teachers,” said Principal Shawn Brown.

Out of the schools in Missouri, two were awarded gold status, 22 earned silver status and 122 received a bronze recognition. The evaluation looks at the school’s college readiness index. It focuses on the percentage of advanced placement students tested, their scores on the test and how many passed. It also takes into account the scores from the end-of-course math and English tests.

According to the scorecard, Wright City received an 8.2 for college readiness. It had 11 percent of students take the advanced placement testing, with 64 percent of those passing. The school scored a 69 percent in math proficiency and a 73 percent in English proficiency. 

“The fact that our district has been laser focused on achievement and really tried to increase rigor for our kids and provide them with solid learning opportunities every day has contributed to our success,” said Brown. 

The evaluation and rankings were based off of data from the 2014-15 school year. Wright City High School has an enrollment of 450 students and staffs 29 full-time teachers. The district has an 85 percent graduation rate.

Brown says being able to share those recognitions received by the district really says a lot for the community.

“It brings a great source of pride to our community,” said Brown. “We’re really proud of the fact we provide a high school that provides quality education. Throughout the years it’s been something we’re really focused on is making this a place people want to move to.”

Tips for New Sod

New Sod Care

First 2 Weeks

The key to establishing new sod is to keep it properly watered for the first month. Immediately after installing sod, water thoroughly making it spongy to the step. The new sod should be kept thoroughly wet to a depth of 4″ to 6″ and watered 3 to 5 times a day during the first 7 to 14 days depending on the season. Lift a corner of the sod to determine the depth of moisture. In the first week, it is very important to keep the new sod damp. During this time stay off the sod so it can take root and you do not sink in and leave depressions from your foot steps. During hot weather, sprinklers should run several times a day so the new sod never dries out. If allowed to dry out, the sod will shrink, brown, and can die. The roots of your new sod will penetrate the soil faster and root down sooner if properly watered. At the end of week 2, dry up the yard enough so you can mow.

Weeks 3 & 4

The following 2 weeks are used to transition from frequent daily watering to fewer cycles per day and increase the number of days between waterings. During week 3, reduce waterings to 1-3 times per day and skip a day between watering if the new sod is not drying out. By week 4, water 1 to 2 times every other day. After week 4, your new yard should be ready to go 2 to 3 days between watering. Water your lawn in the evening or early morning when less evaporation occurs. To reduce run-off on hills and promote deep root growth, reduce watering times in half. One hour later, run the irrigation cycle again and apply the rest of the water. This allows the water to soak into heavy soils.

Rest of the Season

Your new lawn will need more water the first growing season and especially the first 6 months. As it roots deeper over the course of a year, it will need less water. If your lawn looks dry, it probably needs watering. The key to new sod care during this time is deep watering less frequently. This will help the roots grow down and develop a deep root system that uses less water. It is ok after the first two months to stress your lawn a little. This means let your yard dry out a bit and when you see signs of stress starting to appear, make sure to water. This will also allow you to fine tune the sprinkler system and adjust heads for proper coverage and change nozzles for more or less water in certain spots.

Mow if Grass exceeds 3.5″

Your new lawn should be mowed at the end of week 2 or if you lawn exceeds 3 1/2″ tall. Back off on the watering so the turf is dry to the touch and firm enough to walk on without sinking in. If your new lawn reaches over 3 1/2″, mow off a third of the length even if it has not been two weeks. Do not cut shorter than 2″ for the first few times you mow. Exercise caution the first time you mow so you do not damage or pull up the sod. If some of the sod does move around, don’t worry. Just put it back in place and it will grow in.

5 Things to do to ensure your loan closes

Purchasing a home is most likely the largest investment you will make and is the cornerstone of a financial plan.  Proper guidance and education throughout this process is critical.  Follow these 5 tips to avoid disappointment

  1. Your fist step is to get a Pre Approval form a trustworthy, reputable lender.  A lender referral from your real estate agent, friends and family are a great way to place yourself in the hands of a qualified mortgage professional.  It is not all about trying to get the lowest rate.  It is also about the reputation and service you will receive throughout the process to ensure that you close on time.
  2. DO NOT apply for any new credit.  Your Pre Approval is based on information reporting on your credit report at the time you apply for the mortgage loan.  It is VERY IMPORTANT to keep your credit the same, or at leas very similar, through the closing date.  Now is NOT the time to go out and buy a new car.
  3.  DO NOT utilize credit cards to purchase new furniture or appliances.  Increased credit card debt can negatively affect your credit score and therefore has the potential to cause issues with final mortgage approval.
  4. During this time, remember to save money for your new home purchase and also save money for reserves allowing you to have money after you close on your home.  There are several items you may find that you need when you move into your new home.
  5. Make sure you are protecting yourself by utilizing a seasoned, professional Real Estate Agent.  You want a knowledgeable Real Estate Agent guiding you through the process.  This can help you avoid issues and navigate through the complexities of buying a new home.
