Hottie Lucy inspires our late night obsession with all things local. Take a look at some of the latest links we're checking for our late night, swing shift and early morning readers:
Pricey Infrastructure Repair
KANSAS CITY, Mo. - A metro couple could be on the hook for costly repairs after experiencing a sewage backup in their home. A plumber dug a hole to investigate the pipe, but after digging into city property, the costs of repairs have been transferred from the city to the plumber and the couple.
Eternally Long Term Parking
Police are investigating a death at the parking lot of the Kansas City International Airport. Officers arrived on scene at around 8 p.m. and discovered a deceased victim inside a vehicle. Airport police alerted officers to a vehicle that was emitting a foul odor. The cause of death has not been released.
Nasty Signage In The Stix
LIBERTY, Mo. -- People who live in the neighborhood near Liberty Plaza woke up to a sign advertising "Slaves 4 Sale" hanging over a Confederate battle flag at Richard Geisenheyner's home. Geisneheyner says the sign is a reaction to being treated like a racist because he flies the flag in front of his home.
More Social Than Tech In Kansas City
Hundreds of techies, innovators and entrepreneurs converged in Kansas City for the third annual Techweek KC conference, which launched Monday and runs through Friday. The Chicago-based conference series, which focuses on innovation and entrepreneurship, returned to the City of Fountains for a five-day conference, expo and festival.
Local Heroism Remembered
Once stranded young fans who are now men, 'Kansas City 8' thank Amos Otis for help during 'Plaza Flood'
KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- It's been 40-years since the historic "Plaza Flood" where two-dozen victims lost their lives. The Royals game that night was canceled, and a star of the past found himself at a hotel near the stadium. Four decades ago, Royals fans chanted "A-O" for outfield favorite Amos Otis.
Golden Ghetto Sacrilege
A pastor at the Christ Lutheran Church in Overland Park is asking for help after the church was vandalized for a fifth time. The prayer garden was damaged for a second time in as many weeks. The church on Nieman Road has been struck by vandals five times over the past couple months, with the most recent incident happening last Saturday.
Celebrate Fake Gronk Front Man
When the Sunday Night Football theme song started rolling during the Cowboys/Giants game, I was a little surprised to see that the Kansas City Chiefs actually had a player FEATURED in the opening montage. Normally this is the NFL's chance to shove guys like Antonio Brown, Von Miller, and Russell Wilson down our throats.
And this is the OPEN THREAD for tonight . . .
