If Ben Bernanke were a British citizen, he would be knighted for his tenure as chairman of the Federal Reserve and for his tireless work during the second most challenging economic time in our country’s history.
I heard on the radio that the Missouri legislature is considering following Kansas’ lead in requiring voters to show photo identification.
The recent actions in Missouri are a good first bid to halt the border war, at least when it comes to state subsidies.
To call the events unfolding in and around Ukraine “fluid” would be to underestimate the swift hydraulics operating on at least two continents. Russian President Vladimir Putin’s Crimea calculus is as dangerous as it is impenetrable and unpredictable.
Kansas City’s promotional video is one of those feel-good media spots that includes some very good reasons people live here. Chalk that up as a success even if — as is likely — one of the eight competing cities beats us out for the 2016 GOP convention.
Kansas basketball coach Bill Self has often said hes proud of the streak of Big 12 championships his teams have won. And for good reason: Its a heck of an accomplishment. Then why did he act like a $5 million-a-year spoilsport Saturday evening after the Jayhawks clinched sole possession of their 10th straight conference title?
Could gardening and grass mowing be around the corner?
Staples will be closing a number of stores through the end of 2015 nationwide.
It was both disspiriting and unsurprising to hear the other day that nearly 100 artworks had been stolen from storage at Cubas National Museum of Fine Arts. Disspiriting because there are hints that the heist was an inside job and possibly accomplished with the knowledge of the government. Unsurprising for the very same reasons.
As recent events in North Carolina, Texas, the Cheasepeake Bay region, California and West Virginia demonstrate, precious water is a core issue for individuals and governments. And individuals should keep watch on their water, their weather and what their governments do about all of it.
History isn’t likely to repeat itself in Hickman Mills. Because this time we’ll all be watching.
With their bill that would prevent voters from changing their party affiliations from June 1 to Sept. 1., Kansas Republicans want to fix something that isnt broken. The Legislature should stuck with the current law, or better yet, go with a system like Missouris, where primary voters can request whichever partys ballot they prefer, regardless of their affiliation.
Kansas pleaded that it didnt mean to condone discrimination against gay people. Legislators, even some of the folks who voted for the daffy religious freedom bill, decried it when faced with the national embarrassment the thing ignited. Can we get that in writing? How about by a vote through the Legislature?
The U.S. only stands to gain if Mexico can keep drug cartel leader Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman locked up this time and run him through its courts to conviction. Our nations are deeply, deeply entwined compadres in commerce, whether the import or export is crops, cars, human labor or drugs.
We all use casual pronunciation from time to time. But how should journalists render it when writing down what we say?
A story about concerns that the International House of Prayer has been fueling anti-gay policies and furor in the African nation of Uganda used a contentions abbreviation that also is claimed by a popular restaurant chain. There are ways around that.
just because the Country Club Plaza streets and sidewalks are public does not give the right to individuals or groups to do as they like. The Plaza is a public heritage that must be inclusive, but that inclusiveness must not be trampled on when mobs effectively push out other patrons.
Barack Obama would like to go down in history for more than Obamacare and ending two wars. The Keystone XL oil pipeline and illegal immigration are two ripe issues for his legacy that would not only expand his record but also demonstrate that he was a president capable of moving beyond lofty rhetoric to getting things done.
The problem is when enlightened liberal norms are divorced from American power, liberal norms do not win out.
President Barack Obama is seeking diplomatic and especially economic leverage against Russian President Vladimir Putins ramshackle nation in order to advance the enormous U.S. interest in depriving him of Ukraine. Unless Obama finds such leverage, his precipitous slide into Jimmy Carter territory will continue.
Fifty is not the New 30. Fifty is the new freakin 50. This aint no Hot Mom/Cougar kind of talk though. Im not trying to be one of those women so scared of aging they crave the attention of men half their age or stuff themselves into clothes that dont forgive 50-year-old flesh.
Chris Irving probably didnt realize his coaching potential when an improvised explosive device turned his vehicle into a mass of twisted steel and sinew. Yet he plys skills learned in the military by implementing strategy on diamonds, fields and courts instead of decks, airfields and foxholes through coaching.
Higher education is the path to success for our young people, and investing in higher education has and will continue to serve our state well as we endeavor to create more jobs in Missouri, writes Tim Wolfe, the president of the University of Missouri System. I encourage you to join me in raising your voice in support of higher education and the benefits it provides to individuals, communities and our state.
On behalf of the Missouri Association of Prosecuting Attorneys, Teresa Hensley, Jean Peters Baker, Lynn M. Stoppy, Daniel L. White and Eric Zahnd endorse a proposed revision to Missouris Criminal Code, saying it would modernize antiquated statutes, harmonize many duplicate provisions and gives prosecutors an important new tool in the form of a fifth felony class.
