Royals Win 3-2 And Lead World Series 2-1!!!



Shotgun blasts and some illegal fireworks mark a bit of celebration in my part of Kansas City right now . . .

A HUGE ROYALS WIN HIGHLIGHTS THE KANSAS CITY FRIDAY NIGHT!!!

It was a kind of a snoozer of a game and mostly a defensive struggle but still worth a peek to all the newbies jumping on the bandwagon.

Still haven't figured out what difference it might make in the lives of most of the people in this town OR that of their suburban fans. BUT it seems fun nonetheless. Might add a few more links to this post later.

More for the morning update . . .

Kelly Brook And The Kansas City Friday Night



Here are more than a few links we're checking tonight in addition to Kelly Brook and her enduring hotness . . .

Saving power rankings for later . . . These are kinda 7th-inning stretch Kansas City links for the moment because most "journalism" regarding this town is mostly about baseball promo sponsored content marketing . . . Still, here's probably the most informative round-up of local news tonight . . .

Golden Ghetto Goes With Sen. Roberts



More and more we find that early election hype over a so-called "moderate GOP" renaissance in Kansas was nothing more than MSM fantasy. Check this JoCo notice of the only Rep. Paul Davis stronghold falling to an old school Senator who doesn't really hang out among the locals very much: JoCo Republicans Line Up With Roberts

MUST READ!!! KANSAS CITY ACTIVIST ALONZO WASHINGTON WORKS TO CLARIFY COMMUNITY CONFUSION OVER TIPS CASH!!!



Amid a call for greater community engagement and tips in THE HORRIFIC MURDER OF ANGEL HOOPER there's a bit of confusion regarding reward cash.

To wit . . .

KANSAS CITY ACTIVIST ALONZO WASHINGTON CLARIFIES HOW TIPS CASH IS AWARDED IN ORDER TO ENCOURAGE PEOPLE TO COME FORWARD WITH INFO!!!

Here's the first TIPS clarification from the Kansas City activist: 



Mr. Washington contends that complaints from people who didn't understand the process often prevent others from coming forward.



Mr. Washington offers more clarification . . . Most importantly:



JUST LIKE POLICE . . . MR. WASHINGTON SEEMS TO BE DIRECTING PEOPLE INTERESTED REWARD CASH TO THE TIPS HOTLINE @ 816-474-8477

Like it or not, bigger rewards have encouraged more tips in the past as the community hopes to repeat this pattern and find the people who killed this Kansas City innocent.

TKC BREAKING NEWS!!! JACKSON COUNTY PROSECUTOR MEAN JEAN BRAGS ABOUT TAKING DOWN KANSAS CITY TEFLON MAN!!!



Take a look at the Jackson County Prosecutor showing a bit of swagger after a big verdict against a reputed Kansas City gang member.

Check it:

Home invaders sentenced to 25 years in prison

Maryln Standifer and Joshua Fields -- convicted of invading a south Kansas City home and terrorizing residents, including children, with a blaze of gunfire -- were each sentenced today to 25 years in prison, Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker announced today.

Standifer was sentenced to 15 years on charges of Attempted Robbery, Armed Criminal Action and Burglary and 10 years on Kidnapping and Armed Criminal Action charges. Judge Robert Schieber set the 10- and 15- year sentences to run consecutively for a total of a 25-year prison sentence.

A second defendant in connection with the same home invasion, Joshua Fields, was also sentenced today to 25 years on Attempted Robbery and Kidnapping and 15 years on two Armed Criminal Action charges. His total prison sentence was also set for a total of 25 years.

“I’m glad justice is being served,” the victim testified today. “I’m doing this for my kids and their safety and …. for safety everywhere.”

Judge Schieber acknowledged the victim’s bravery in coming forward. And he noted the serious nature of the crime, which he added might easily had resulted in multiple homicides. “It was the shootout at the OK Corral with four little girls right in the middle of it,” Schieber said.

Standifer, who acknowledged his gang activities, had been dubbed by media as “the Teflon man” for beating multiple murder charges.

“It’s time for a new nickname,” Baker told media after the Standifer sentencing.

A third defendant in the case has already pleaded guilty and is in federal custody, while a fourth defendant is expected to be sentenced next week.

TKC EXCLUSVIE: SHOCK!!! KANSAS CITY BREAKS PROMISES TO CURB STREET CLOGGING WEEKEND RACES!!!



Not so long ago, Kansas City attempted to prevent so many races and marathons from taking over local streets and making midday weekend traffic nearly impassible.

Double races are set to create a traffic jam tomorrow.

A rather DEDICATED TKC READER asks:

"What happened to the promise that the races would be limited to Sunday morning? These two appear to be on Saturday when businesses are trying to be open,"

Obviously, Kansas City simply gave in to the Marathon-Industrial-Complex and locals are once again subject to the stampede of JoCo interlopers clogging local streets amid a steady pace of broken promises from local government.

TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! TRANSIT ACTIVIST CLAY CHASTAIN FACES SERIOUS KANSAS CITY E-TAX CHALLENGES AMID MAYORAL CAMPAIGN KICK-OFF!!!



As we reported FIRST, Clay Chastain plans to start his Mayoral campaign today.

Readers and locals have been talking about residency but some of the most AWESOME KANSAS CITY INSIDERS say that we're all missing the bigger picture.

To wit . . .

IT'S NOT JUST RESIDENCY BUT E-TAX QUESTIONS AND CHALLENGES THAT COULD PROVE SERIOUS FOR MAYORAL HOPEFUL CLAY CHASTAIN!!!

Here's the word . . .

"If he does not keep his promise at that news conference to get current on his city taxes he will be faced when filing for Mayor with having to sign a sworn affidavit like all candidates that he is current on all taxes. If he lies on the affidavit he could be prosecuted."

Mr. Chastain wouldn't be the only guy in Kansas City thwarted by the demands of the E-Tax.

Still . . .

THIS IS A REMINDER TO ALL POTENTIAL CANDIDATES THAT SOME OF THE BEST AND BRIGHTEST IN THIS TOWN WILL BE PORING OVER FINANCIAL RECORDS OF ALL LOCAL CANDIDATES IN THE COMING WEEKS AND MONTHS!!!

And yes, that means a lot of people we'll also be looking at the weird-ass living arrangements of Theresa Garza Ruiz amid the residency questions that surround her campaign.

TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! MORE KANSAS CITY EBOLA FEAR THIS MORNING!!! TKC TIPSTERS WARN OF SUSPECT VIRUS CASE @ TMC VIA LIBERIA AMID MEDICAL PRO TALK CRACKDOWN!!!



This one has more detail and looks more serious than the last . . .

WORD IS ALREADY OUT THAT TMC IS COPING WITH A SUSPECTED VIRUS AND POSSIBLE EBOLA THREAT NOW @ TMC!!!

KICK-ASS TKC TIPSTERS tell us this . . .

"Ask about TMC and the person they are currently treating for Ebola. Apparently guy got off the plane with a fever from Liberia. Haven't heard any news talking about it and people need to know."

And so . . . THIS IS NOT AN EBOLA CONFIRMATION . . . But simply FIRST word from a VERY GOOD SOURCE about the discussion happening right now in Kansas City and talk among local medical pros . . .

Here's what's even worse and scarier . . .

THROUGHOUT KANSAS CITY THERE IS NOW A CRACKDOWN OF ANY EBOLA MENTION . . . CHECK TWITTER FOR THE WORD FROM SEVERAL LOCAL MEDICAL PROS SPEAKING OUT ONLINE AGAINST A TERMINOLOGY CRACKDOWN!!!

Here's one tweet out of many:

Update: Alex Jones Prison Planet confirmation . . . Hospitals Threaten to Fire Workers for Using the Word ‘Ebola’

MUST READ!!! TKC READER LAMENTS WORLD SERIES OVERLOOKING KANSAS CITY ROYALS LEGEND FRANK WHITE!!!



TKC NOTE: Here's a really important and heartfelt tribute to an upcoming elected official, community volunteer and baseball living legend. I was also exceptionally impressed the AWESOME TKC READER asked for his editorial to be signed.

Check it:

URGENT URGENT URGENT BREAKING NEWS

SHOWING OUR COLORS: WORLD SERIES COVERAGE on FOX TV

Every time the discussion or ads show George Brett (we gotta love him!) the absence of Frank White seethes the depression of all Americans. We see George Brett's statue.....(hooray!) while Frank White's, a few feet away, just as prominent and rightfully so, is ignored. We in America are proud of our sports heroes, and rightfully. All of them. If Sports is of any value culturally (it is), and if Kansas City contributes to the national and now international story (it does), then the cameras and correspondents must find Frank White. We wonder out loud, and in our hearts, "why Ferguson? What is happening?"

The answer is the factual loss of a homegrown hero to the thousand Americans of African descent (some living close enough to see the lights of the Stadium...on ground on which their Civil War blood was shed to yield an America still not accepting all Americans as full citizens ..shows our true colors.

TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! FIRST ON TKC!!! UBER STEPS UP THEIR GAME AMID LYFT HARSH TIMES IN KANSAS CITY!!!



Our TKC BLOG COMMUNITY is right in the middle of the local transportation fight for control of Kansas City streets.

Now . . .

HERE'S THE WORD FROM UBER ABOUT DEEP DISCOUNTS IN THE AFTERMATH OF LOCAL LYFT TEMPORARY SHUT DOWN FIRST AND EXCLUSIVELY ON TKC!!!

Kansas City Uber honcho Ben McCarthy seyz:

"As you reported yesterday, Lyft announced that they are suspending operations indefinitely at noon on Friday (24th). Many young people in town use Lyft, and may have not heard of Uber (or used Lyft primarily because it was slightly more affordable than Uber at the time).

"Uber has actually cut rates 30-35% in the last month, and offers a very similar experience to Lyft. There's a new promo code (8klr0) that can be utilized by anyone who is a first time user to Uber. That will get them $20 off when they start riding.

Whether someone needs a designated driver, has to make a trip to the airport, or wants to get to an event with questionable parking, Uber is a great resource for everyone to have on their smart phone.

We'd love to help get the word out as much as possible so that former Lyft users won't be without a ride share moving forward."

PEREGRINE HONIG AND HER ILLICIT KANSAS CITY ROYALS PANTIES PROBABLY WON GAME 2 OF THE WORLD SERIES!!!



A couple of days ago OUR KICK-ASS TKC BLOG COMMUNITY WAS FIRST THE PEREGRINE HONIG PANTY RAID BY HOMELAND SECURITY since that time the lurid tale of confiscated Kansas City Royals panties has exploded all over the media scene.



Everybody has taken a whiff of this story and it's probably the most exciting thing about the game . . . Given that the TV ratings were the second-lowest ever for a Game 2.

CONGRATS TO OUR NEMESIS PEREGRINE FOR MAKING THE WORLD SERIES MUCH MORE INTERESTING WITH A PEEK AT HER ILLEGAL PANTIES!!!

Some of our most AWESOME TKC READERS remind us that she probably "couldn't buy this kind of publicity" and they're probably right.

SHOCK!!! KANSAS CITY MEDIA IGNORES RACIAL HATERATION DIRECTED TOWARD ROYALS STAR SALVADOR PEREZ!!!



Here's yet another sign that corporate Kansas City media is mostly dedicated to happy news and they're not even going to report the interesting stuff going down amid the Royals World Series challenge.

To wit . . .

TODAY KANSAS CITY MEDIA COMPLETELY GLOSSED OVER RACIAL AND ETHNIC ANIMOSITY DIRECTED TOWARD ROYALS SUPERSTAR SALVADOR PEREZ!!!

Not once but TWICE did San Francisco Giants pitcher Hunter Strickland direct a bit of racial and ethnic hateration toward Perez.

AMONG BETTER MEDIA OUTLETS THERE IS RAGE OVER STRICKLAND SEEMINGLY CALLING PEREZ "BOY" AND DIRECTING HIM BACK TO THE DUGOUT!!!

Check it . . .

Fox News Latino - Foul call: Did a Giants pitcher use a racial slur with Latino ballplayer at the World Series?

And then to add insult to injury . . .

STICKLAND SNUBS PEREZ ONCE AGAIN AND SAYS "HE DOESN'T SPEAK SPANISH" WHEN ASKED ABOUT PEREZ COMPLAINTS!!!

Boston Globe caries the quote but doesn't get across the snide tone when Strickland admitted, “I want to handle it a little bit better. I was pretty frustrated with myself. I don’t know if he thought I was yelling at him. No, I was just frustrated with myself. I don’t speak Spanish so I don’t know what he said.”

SHAME ON STRICKLAND: PEREZ SPEAKS ENGLISH AND GIVES NEARLY ALL HIS INTERVIEWS IN ENGLISH . . . THIS IS CLEARLY A LATINO ETHNIC ATTACK @ THE VENEZUELAN HERITAGE OF PEREZ!!!

The MLB is trying to smooth this over and call it a "misunderstanding" and their corporate propaganda has directed KC media to do the same.

BUT MAKE NO MISTAKE: KANSAS CITY MEDIA REMAINS SILENT AS RACIAL DRAMA SPARKED THE KERFUFFLE BETWIXT THE ROYALS AND THE GIANTS LAST NIGHT!!!

Sadly, there are no place for facts or a real look at how nasty baseball players can get from so many local "journalists" who have been reduced to nothing more than cheerleaders.

No one can doubt Mr. Chastain's petition prowess and for the past few years he has proved to be on the right side of the charter and election law against City Hall. So it's most likely worth considering his latest political battle.

The latest from Clay:

"KC Mayoral Candidate Clay Chastain will address the residency controversy surrounding his campaign on Friday October 24 at 10:00 A.M. outside the Price Chopper Grocery Store in Brookside (63rd.

MUST READ!!! POWER TO PRINCIPALS COULD PROVIDE KEY TO FULL ACCREDITATION FOR KANSAS CITY PUBLIC SCHOOLS!!!



The push is on to find a way to push Kansas City back toward Full-Accreditation after more than a few missteps over the past few years.

Right now the district is looking for ideas that mostly involve parents and their political friends shilling for contracts.

However . . .

Recent progress in other parts of the nation PROVES THAT PROVIDING PRINCIPALS WITH MORE FINANCIAL POWER OVER THEIR SCHOOLS LEADS TO REAL IMPROVEMENT and better distribution of resources.

The Show-Me blog makes this argument supported by more than a bit of data:

"Here in Kansas City, better school management means moving the power of the purse away from the top-down centralized control at 12th and McGee streets and out to the principals at Paseo, Lincoln Prep, and elsewhere."

TAKE A LOOK AT THIS ENTHUSIASTIC CROWD OF KANSAS CITY PROTESTORS CALLING OUT POLICE BRUTALITY IN SOLIDARITY WITH #FERGUSON!!!

Check the Kansas City clip recently shot amid ongoing Ferguson protests.



Deets:

"National Day Of Protest To Stop Police Brutality, Repression, And The Criminalization Of A Generation in Kansas City at 31st and Paseo"

Agree or not, it's a fact that there has been a significant protest movement in Kansas City aimed at fighting against alleged instances of police brutality from #Ferguson solidarity, to Anthony Bruno debate and other recent officer-involved shootings.

The movement has grown more organized and from the looks of this video they're able to draw several dozen protesters during the middle of the day . . . A feat that many partisan political groups can't always claim and testament to the national trend that starts with national efforts to "demilitarize" the police and then continues into smaller neighborhood advocacy.
