Our midday update imagines Gwenny at the grocery store as part of a consumer fantasy as we feature some of the most important Kansas City MSM links for right now. Take a peek:
Billion Dollar KCMO Assurance
A fair number of the Kansas City voters who will determine the future of KCI at the ballot box Nov. 7 are concerned about convenience, a matter the contractor says is being addressed. Edgemoor Infrastructure & Real Estate officials have held multiple meetings with the public over its plan to build a single terminal at the airport to upgrade the current layout.
City Market Hipster Aftertaste
Boulevard Brewing Co. is stepping outside its typical offerings with a new cider that draws inspiration from Kansas City's City Market. The name and flavor profile of City Market Cider is a nod to the popular gathering spot and farmer's market, which "represents a place where chefs and home cooks come together to show and taste the best flavors in the region," according to a release.
Show-Me Vaporware Project Defended
But the prospect of Kansas Citians reaching St. Louis in only 23 minutes is more realistic than many think. Hyperloop is a 760 miles-per-hour transit system described as high-speed rail travel in a vacuum. A series of interconnected tubes create a low-pressure environment in which levitated pods are propelled by electric motors, gliding with limited friction at speeds that surpass air travel.
Rock Chalk Pollution
Kansas' energy-regulating agency is trying to determine why permits were issued for half a dozen wastewater wells whose operators didn't accurately inform nearby residents of their rights to protest the wells. The deficiencies were discovered by a resident of Matfield Green in Chase County who objects to the wells, into which companies can pour hundreds or thousands of barrels of oil- and gas-related wastewater per day.
Kansas City Doggie Update
KANSAS CITY, Mo. - A near-death experience at a fire may have in fact saved the life of a local dog. Firefighters rescued the female bull dog from a duplex fire Friday, but it was a discovery afterward that may have made the biggest difference.
Cowtown Garbage Plate
Here are area restaurants with 7 or more priority or critical health code violations, with highlighted links to some original public record reports by city or county health inspectors. Restaurants correct most violations at the time of the original inspection or shortly thereafter.
