THE TKC SATURDAY NIGHT PLAYLIST!!! SCARY TIMES CONFRONTING KANSAS CITY THIS HALLOWEEN WEEK!!!
For our late night readers and those up for the witching hour we share a quick preview of spooky times ahead for Kansas City.
A quick list of what to watch for in the coming days . . .
Bloody Mess: Kansas City Homicide Count
KCPD counts 122 murders in KCMO so far this year and that's a 10-YEAR-RECORD PACE for this date on the calendar. We've enjoyed a peaceful few days but Halloween week always provides increased instances of mischief.
Courthouse Reckoning: Jackson County Property Tax Crisis Climax Cometh . . .
KCTV5 has led the local reporting on this issue as the BOE threatens to FINALLY act, Missouri politicos are shaking their fist toward KCMO's Democratic Party leadership AND, yes, the scariest thing of all is that the Feds are still watching and patiently waiting.
Death Of The Downtown Renaissance
Behind the scenes, friends of the blog in the finance game tell us that that THE STRATA DEAL NEEDS TO HAPPEN. We'll see if Mayor Quinton Lucas can skillfully navigate his way out of this economic showdown but make no mistake that DEVELOPERS still have a great deal of influence in this town's politics despite the grassroots movement against corporate welfare.
And so . . . All of this inspires our Kansas City Saturday night playlist of scary, funky songs for Halloween week.
As always, thanks for reading this week and have a safe and fun Saturday night.
