Far from the sea, sailboat fans ply the waves of Kansas City area lakes

We may be far from the nearest ocean, but most lakes in the area have some level of sailing every weekend. In fact, many have their own sailing and yachting clubs. Some participate for the sport of it; others, just for fun. So step aboard a sailboat and ply the waters of Shawnee Mission Park Lake, Smithville Lake or Lake Jacomo, among others.


Donations keep coming for Roeland Park family helped after shoplifting

Six days ago, Sarah Robinson, a single mother of six, could have been arrested for shoplifting much-needed diapers and baby wipes, but Police Officer Mark Engravalle thought otherwise. Engravalle paid for the items, and his act of generosity has prompted others to help out. On Saturday at the Roeland Park Police Department, countless residents donated cash, clothing, blankets and other items to Robinson and her children.
