James Shields continues to pitch like the No. 1 guy the Royals expected when they acquired him in that big off-season deal from Tampa Bay. And the Royals continue to waste his efforts. Shields gave up two runs Friday night in eight innings but only found more disappointment when the Royals’ attack again went quiet in a 2-1 loss to the Oakland A’s at the O.co Coliseum.
When The Office crew clocked out Thursday night, the workers had been at the fictional Dunder Mifflin Paper Co. for nine seasons, or about twice as long as the average job tenure for most Americans. But even as everyday workers tend to complain about their jobs and bosses and quickly jump ship for better opportunities, viewers have shown remarkable loyalty to TV programs about the workplace.

Former KU guard Ben McLemore spoke Thursday to Sports Illustrated and Campusinsiders.com at the NBA Combine in Chicago about AAU coach Darius Cobb’s revelation that he accepted $10,000 in cash payments to steer McLemore toward Rodney Blackstock, a middleman with connections to agents and financial advisers in Los Angeles.
Gasoline prices have climbed in the last month because of low stockpiles and refinery outages, but a decline in wholesale prices raises hope that the worst is over.
Jay Nixon is a hands-off governor. That’s the word in the statehouse. He’s out of sight, disconnected, a distant presence rather than a dominating force, Republicans and more than a few Democrats say. But six hours spent with the two-term governor just two days before final adjournment revealed a chief executive anything but disengaged.
The Kansas State baseball team is on the verge of making history. With one more victory, it will clinch at least a share of its first conference championship since 1933 and add an exclamation point to an already stellar year for the Wildcats’ athletic department: becoming the second Big 12 school to win conference titles in football, men’s basketball and baseball in the same academic year.
Dollar drink specials and live dueling pianos provided plenty of entertainment Wednesday night at Ernie Biggs.
It may be weeks before Kansans know if prosecutors will seek the death penalty for Kyle Flack, accused of killing four people in Franklin County this spring. It will take far longer 10 years or more before anyone in the state is actually put to death for a crime. And that time gap, advocates on both sides of the death penalty debate say, suggests the state remains deeply uneasy about the punishment an ambivalence that muddies its value.
Outfielder Jarrod Dyson is expected to miss two-to-four weeks after being diagnosed Friday in Kansas City with what trainer Nick Kenney termed “a mild high ankle sprain.” Dyson, 28, suffered the injury in the eighth inning Wednesday when he scaled the center-field wall at Angel Stadium in pursuit of a Mike Trout homer against Kelvin Herrera.

Fans crowded into the Midland theater in downtown Kansas City on Thursday evening to attend the concert of comedian, actor, writer and singer Rodney Carrington.
The neighborhood movie theater may be making a comeback in a new combination of theaters and upscale restaurant under one roof. Standees-The Entertaining Eatery will open to the public May 24 in the Village shopping center in Prairie Village. The owners hope to expand to other markets in the Kansas City area and the region.
Branden Albert is standing tall, a 6-foot-5 and 316-pound giant, the most confident and sure face he can muster telling you that whatever problems he might have had with the Chiefs are in the past. He very much wants you to believe this. He very much wants to believe it himself.
The motion, filed in Jackson County Circuit Court, is packed with excerpts from depositions of dozens of witnesses — including priests and nuns — and an affidavit from a former school board member at Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary School, who said she complained about Monsignor Thomas O’Brien’s alleged inappropriate behavior to a former bishop, then resigned and pulled her son from the school in the 1980s because nothing was done about it.
Candice Glover, a 23-year-old R&B vocalist from St. Helena Island, S.C., won the Fox singing competition after auditioning a trio of times and making it to the finals this year. Glover looked stunned when Idol host Ryan Seacrest announced she bested soulful 22-year-old country singer Kree Harrison from Woodville, Texas.
