WHERE DENYING A POLITICAL OPPONENT A WIN HAS BECOME MORE IMPORTANT THAN GETTING THINGS DONE FOR THE PEOPLE THEY REPRESENT. WE ARE BETTER THAN THAT IN KANSAS.
Rock Chalk Obfuscation
LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) - The University of Kansas suspended two fraternities for hazing earlier this month, but officials don't plan to share their investigation with police.

KANSAS CITY, MO (Gray News/KCTV5) - Tuskegee Airman Brigadier Gen. Charles McGee died Sunday at the age of 102. He was one of the last surviving Tuskegee Airmen. He died in his sleep with "his right hand over his heart," his youngest daughter said in a statement. Today, we lost an American hero.
Dead-Tree Reporting What Didn't Happen . . .
OPINION AND COMMENTARY We won't have the chance to fundamentally improve Kansas City's government this year after all.

MLK Legacy Considered

Super Bowl Chase Underway
It's time. The Kansas City Chiefs' potential third straight Super Bowl run starts against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday night. There are so many clichés about playoff football: defense wins championships, you have to run the ball in January, the game speeds up, etc. For the Chiefs to win this weekend, the formula is much simpler.
Restaurant Week Toned Down
Diners around Kansas City braved snow, freezing temperatures and an ongoing COVID surge to take part in the first weekend of Restaurant Week. It's the second year in a row the annual nine-day event has taken place during the pandemic, and many restaurant-goers were equipped this year with vaccines, boosters and masks.
Fans Share Good Deeds
