Local Journalism History

Another Kansas City Rebuilding Year?!?

The Kansas City Chiefs should feel free to completely tear the defense apart

Justin Houston's time in Kansas City is all but over. Dee Ford has been tagged but could be dealt. If neither player is in a Chiefs uniform when the 2019 season kicks off, it will mean the front office willingly sent packing two of the biggest reasons for the team's lone defensive bright spot in 2018.


Local Warm-Up Promised

Temps finally back above freezing, light rain possible Thursday evening

We are definitely getting rain this weekend.

The Chouteau Heritage Fountain will probably not be properly maintained, as many other fountains have been neglected, by the city so KCMO will be known as the city of failed fountains.

^^^^ Aha! Yet another "cut and paste" weird anonymous snark by Go4KC!

I think the Fake Fat Revs next "movement" should be to change the following names...
Martin Luther King Choteau Parkway
Martin Luther King Cleaver Boulevard
Martin Luther King Main Street
Martin Luther King Meyer Circle
Martin Luther King Southwest Boulevard
Martin Luther King Chavez Boulevard
Martin Luther King Ward Parkway
Martin Luther King the 67th Street
and immediately progress to...
Martin Luther King Jr. Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard!
Come on, KC "Reverends", let's get the ball rolling!

(1)Real tacky to try to suddenly cut off charities.
(2) It's dirty dealings to axe Salerno with bogus "misuse" on funds, because purchases were not exceeding $5000.
(3) Firing her, but not the guy, on claims she conducted an enterprise they deemed conflicted to her employment was another FUBAR.

Item (1) may not be much of an impact to litigation, or, settlement.
Hopefully, the points in items (2) and (3) are very likely bringing the attorney and her client some KA-CHING!!!
