Tyson Manker, a U.S. Marine who served in Iraq, greets another protester in Ferguson, Mo., Aug. 14, 2014. "I have a problem with weapons of war now being used at home on peaceful protesters," said Manker. Jay Nixon, the state's governor, moved Thursday to restore calm in Ferguson after the shooting death of an unarmed black teenager by a police officer had led to several nights of unrest, saying that the Missouri State Highway Patrol would direct the team providing security and crowd control during protests.

  • Jackson County's change in assessing Country Club Plaza shorts KC schools

    The Country Club Plaza sold for $660 million nearly two years ago. The Jackson County assessor’s office set its value -- minus intangibles, such as the Plaza brand, and other non-real estate variables -- at $375 million. Yet the shopping district’s 26 properties are now on the tax rolls at $145 million. The owner, Country Club Plaza JV LLC, won its protest of the higher value by claiming the increase was unfair because the values of neighboring properties went up by lower percentages in the 2017 countywide reassessment.
