Miss Manners? Dr. Oz? Dear Abby? I had a dilemma on my hands, and I wasn’t sure where to turn for advice. Just what is the proper way to inform your houseguests that you’ve exposed them to a superbug?
When I was packing my suitcases for the trip to visit my parents, I turned to the kids. “Never live far away from me. It’s too hard. It hurts too much.” They nodded with a look that said, “I see that this is important to you, Mom, but I really don’t get it.” I understand that look. I gave it to my own parents when I moved out of my home state. I always imagined I would go, have an adventure and come back home. But I redefined “home.”
Some people have complained that contraception has nothing to do with a woman’s health and therefore should not be a part of health insurance benefits. Really?
My justification for not sending holiday letters is really a question: If all that’s left of a relationship is the exchange of a mass-produced letter once a year, what’s the point?
With all of the dysfunction brought on by the wide rift between the Democrats and Republicans, maybe it would be better to have more parties that better represent the wishes of their constituents. For example, we could have a Green Party, a Liberal Party, a Moderate Party, a Labor Party, a Democratic Party, a Republican Party, a Libertarian Party and a Tea Party.
Woooh, doggie, it’s that time again. The holidays are here.
Like a choir of holiday angels, cranberries wear the halo of good health.
If you’d like to make your own change in the world, do yourself and your community a favor and commit to volunteering.
The doubts about my parental wisdom surfaced as the heavy-set white woman with the Confederate flag draped around her neck started screaming “boy” at the black man across the street.
A local choir’s members are linked not only by their love of song, but by mental illnesses, including schizophrenia, chronic depression and b-polar disease.
Kansas City should not run a streetcar line alongside the Trolley Trail. The trail has added so much to living in the Brookside neighborhood: a peaceful place to relax while you walk with your family, friends and dogs, or to go for a run.
What an unexpected gift lands in President Barack Obama’s lap every time rookie Sen. Ted Cruz speaks. Cruz’s self-serving obstructionism and willingness to close down the government to get his way on Obamacare turned the spotlight off the glitches in introducing the Affordable Care Act.
When the risks of the cure are far worse than the symptoms they are supposed to treat, you have to wonder.
Boys + clean = fiction.
During the early 1900s, the intersection at 27th Street and Cleveland Avenue was quite busy, bustling with cars and trucks. Even a Kansas City streetcar line crossed this intersection.
Americans are a giving lot. We rank as the world's best in individual giving to church, charity, research and myriad personal causes. (Some would argue regulated, mandated giving, too.)
Look around Kansas City, and the colors signify October’s presence. Fountains spray pink to spread breast cancer awareness. Red and gold attire flaunt Kansas City Chiefs pride. Orange décor embraces fall.
There’s nothing like “walking a mile in their shoes” to help you become a better caregiver.
Here’s the problem. I cannot claim a signature dinner dish. There’s not one special platter with my name attached. No recipe others request after a potluck. Nothing.
I’ve always considered those people with nice cars who angle them in to take up multiple spaces as selfish pinheads. But now I can understand the motivation of those sideways parking people.
The emotional ride with Obamacare will not end soon. The raw feelings, especially among the opponents, are too deeply ingrained. The fears of losing whatever they think they are losing leaves them bitterly angry.
Birthday parties for boys have the largest potential for Titanic-like outcomes, but girl parties have their own “issues.”
What a great story, and what a great place for Waldo has been for growing up (10-9, 816, “A community with plenty of personality”). The Broadway Methodist Church sponsored not one but two Boy Scout troops, as well as the city’s first Cub Pack, No. 1.
A schedule mix-up forced mother and son to come up with new plans, and brought new perspective to a parenting lesson.
We were told Republicans wanted to stop the spending. It is costing America millions of dollars to keep the government shut down.
