KANSAS CITY WEEKLY POWER RANKINGS!!!
Let's face it, the shut down is now part of U.S. history and most KCMO news fell by the wayside compared to all manner of topics related to the Commander-In-Chief.
Still . . . There's still a lot of game among the local elite and we wanted to recognize these locals for keeping things interesting.
Council Lady Teresa Loar
She wasn't afraid to ask serious questions of Councilman Jermaine Reed about his airport adventures. Also, she doesn't have an opponent this time around. Already Council lady Teresa looks to be a leader on the new council as we enter into silly season.
Kansas City Fed Worker Protesters
A bigger turnout than suspected and quite a few locals calling out the current impasse eared most of the coverage this week . . .

NKC Police Who Saved Kitty
The story made global headlines and the guy earned a prize from PETA along with a new friend. In a week with very few feel good stories, this one made just about everybody (who still has a soul) happy.
And so, at the conclusion of this Red Friday of all Red Fridays:
This list has been compiled according to scientific TKC polling and market research data and it's a weekly comprehensive guide to local powerful people, trends and our times.
