New Jack City: The Case of the Missing Clock Hands or Time Flies in Downtown Overland Park

Been a while since we’ve given downtown Overland Park’s hallowed-if-unpredictable timepiece a second glance.

You may recall an earlier column this year in which I noted that the various times displayed on the towering clock tower’s four faces were out of whack.

Well, a check today found the following; the clock’s north and south faces are (finally) giving the correct time. And the east face of the venerable timepiece overlooking the city’s charming downtown is running approximately 13 minutes behind.

Confusing, but liveable.

As for the west-facing clock face – the one forever stuck at 4:44 – it’s lost its hour and minute hands altogether!

Which may means it’s finally about to be repaired – or maybe retired. Who knows?

So for the time being, when you ask somebone what time it is in OP—well— the answer is, depends what direction you’re facing.

    Maybe It’s
    Everyone has a cell phone anymore who needs watch towers or clocks for that matter. The computer age taking over.
