For 60 years, I’ve watched this great nation be bled out by lawmakers. Most of them are controlled by the oil and money group.
It seems pretty apparent that Kyle Van Winkle was doing no harm to the vehicle he was in.
Keeping the status quo at Kansas City International Airport isn’t a viable option. The mayor’s task force needs to recommend the best ways to make KCI more attractive to airlines so more flights will come in and leave this region. And voters eventually should get to say whether they like any final plan.
An agreement recently ratified by the Kansas City Council and Jackson County Legislature properly formalizes the city’s promise to continue using $2 million annually for stadium upkeep during the current 25-year leases with both the Chiefs and Royals, ending in early 2031.
Mayor Sly James is arguing he didn’t know that the state’s giveaway program for Boeing might affect low-income housing programs that he cares about. So why didn’t the mayor ask that valid question before giving his support to the Boeing project?
If the Jimmy Johns restaurant and drive-through, planned for the in the 900 block of Broadway, becomes reality or doesnt life will go on. With all of downtowns challenges, fighting a drive-through should be low on the priority list.
The phase out of antibiotics in livestock could raise grocery prices for consumers.
It is not surprising that the Walt Disney Co. may immediately expand its Shanghai resort after it opens in late 2015. People in China enjoy a lot of things about Western culture. That includes many Chinese people giving themselves American names.
Yes, he’s the greatest of baseball writers. Here are a few recommendations for reading the best of his work.
In a curious sequence of events, Texas expunges the record in a suspected DUI of Alice L. Walton, the Texas billionaire, Wal-Mart heir and philanthropist who founded the attractive and popular Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in Bentonville, Ark.
Well, that was efficient. In just one week, the Missouri General Assembly managed to pass an economic development bill a feat that often eludes the legislature during its regular sessions. Does this herald a new era of cooperation in Jefferson City? Not a chance.
The notion of a genetic testing company selling ones DNA code the way an online retailer sells email addresses feels decidedly creepy. But what if your doctor asks you to share your genetic information to advance the cause of treatments and cures?
The questions keep nagging: Whats appeasing a middle-class itch to give back and whats substantially helping? Does the broader picture even matter when the wind chill is 9 degrees?
Sam Montague is 101 “and a half,” says his daughter Lisa Montague. When a father lives that long, the half-years become vitally important to count. Dementia has taken some of Montague’s ability to recall the events of his life, but it’s a long list that deserves recognition from Kansas Citians.
Warning: Do not read this post if you havent watched the midseason finale of The Walking Dead. Its already been spoiled in print in The Week That Was feature in Saturdays FYI section, something that did not sit well with a reader.
Readers dont always have the same opinions as critics. and theres nothing wrong with healthy disagreement. Part of the reason that a bad review of something weve enjoyed stings is that the critics negative take feels like personal criticism. Thats an impulse we should all resist.
President Barack Obama and the nation deserve a new slate of leaders to take over Health and Human Services, and thus the implementation of Obamacare, several parts of which have already been postponed a year.
Whatever the motive of Missouri Gov. Jay Nixons border war speech, in which he called for a moratorium within the region on offering generous tax incentives for businesses to move across the state line. it apparently backfired in Kansas, where work is going on quietly, behind the scenes.
Barack Obamas tardy epiphanies do not temper his enthusiasm for giving sauropod government ever-deeper penetration into society. He thinks this serves equality. Actually, big government drives an upward distribution of wealth to those whose wealth, confidence and sophistication enable them to manipulate government.
The Foreign Corrupt Practices Act is important, and JPMorgan should be nailed for bribing Chinese officials. But why isnt there a domestic equivalent? Corruption is corruption, and bribery is bribery, in whatever country or language its transacted in.
We need a leader like Abraham Lincoln to lead the fight to return to our created but unborn citizens the right to Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness as stated in the Declaration of Independence.
A recent trip to my parents hometown challenged assumptions about those living in rural America. Im beginning to think that some urban dwellers have erred in how they view life in small towns. Im finding increased contentment in staying put and decreased interest in a supersized life.
The hoaxes, fabrications, pranks, spoofs and outright lies, all spread at the speed of the Internet, have infected reputable news organizations. Citizen journalism is supposed to make mass media smarter. Instead, social media seems to be making us all a little bit more dumb.
If Kansas City does nothing to save the Southwest Chief, high-speed rail could be developed from St. Louis to Dallas through Springfield and Tulsa, while here in Kansas City weve fallen asleep in our Cheerios, writes Deborah Fischer-Stout of Overland Park, the president of Northern Flyer Alliance Inc.
