Breaking The Back To School Budget

Seg. 1: The Cost Of Getting Ready For School. Seg. 2: From Farm To Table At The Missouri State Fair.

Outfitting a first-grader in the Kansas City Public Schools with supplies can run in the neighborhood of $40 ... and that's not counting clothes costs. It's an expense that not every family can meet and if there's more than one child going to school, the cost can be unmanageable.

Kansas City Foodie Shutdown

Justus Drugstore Closes as Jonathan Justus and Camille Eklof Look For New Home For Flagship Restaurant

Justus Drugstore has left the building. Literally. Last night, chef Jonathan Justus and Camille Eklof loaded up the old soda fountain that had served as the bar of their 11-year-old flagship restaurant in Smithville, Missouri.

And this is the OPEN THREAD for right now . . .


  1. Chef Justice, if you see this, please consider North Kansas City!
    Plenty of existing space, lots of new places drawing young people into the area, very close to the KC Downtown scene, FREE PARKING, and a generally friendly and welcoming attitude.

  2. "I want to see permits. I want to see training. I want to see a longer period for background checks. I also want to see an ordinance that says if you have a gun stolen or lost, you have to report it to the police,” Mayor James said.
    This will have no effect on keeping guns away from criminals. Surely Slie knows criminals could care less about this bs. How about focusing on the criminal and locking them up. Oh yea, the prosecutor does not prosecute.
    "Both women would like to see more officers walking around their neighborhoods on a regular basis, in hopes of curbing or stopping the gun violence."
    Evidently she means letting police be police.

  3. Irrational response to the increasing murders in KC...."A fired-up Mayor James is also sick of the wave of shootings and homicides currently plaguing the city. The mayor is now calling for state lawmakers to create more gun laws he says would make it tougher for more criminals to get their hands on guns.
    "I want to see permits. I want to see training. I want to see a longer period for background checks. I also want to see an ordinance that says if you have a gun stolen or lost, you have to report it to the police,” Mayor James said."

    Rational response and obviously more realistic response from a recent victim's sister… ""I just don’t think more gun laws right now is the answer. I don’t think it helps just because you can go buy a gun right now. Anybody can buy a gun on off the street,” Teaonna McDaniel added."

    Let's get real Mayor James. The problem is criminals having illegal guns, committing crimes and committing murders with these weapons.

    Mothers know

    Brothers know

    Sisters know

    Friends know

    Barbers know

    Beauty shop operators know

    Hair Weave shop operators know

    Ministers know

    City Councilpersons know

    They all know who has guns and are committing crimes against persons and properties in the inner city.

    There is really no excuse anymore as to why this is happening day after day in KC.

  4. Over Rated... another chef with 15 minutes of fame... will blame landlords on Dirt too.


  5. Mayor James calls on lawmakers for more gun control? Really? I have called on lawmakers for an investigation to investigate mayor James because he doesn't know how to handle being a mayor and doesn't want to curb crime that is caused by black people, that's something they don't do.

    Look at Chicago mayor James you idiot.

  6. Bow tie the clown sLIE is not against guns, he’s pro 2nd amendment, he said so, he just doesn’t want anybody in killa shitty to have any, makes perfect sense in sLIE’s world. Why two shit hole cities with out of control black murderers needs to ban guns for an entire state with nearly 4 million peoples is typical government thinking, punish everyone for the acts of a few, is childish thinking from a childish man, sLIE, it’s only a couple hundred of your people causing the problems, man up and deal with it.

  7. Would love to see Justus in the Westside or Crossroads. This area is made for you guys!!!
