Tedeschi Trucks Band is really, really big. Like 11 members big, including husband and wife Derek Trucks (slide guitar) and Susan Tedeschi (guitar, vocals). The band is touring in celebration of its first album, Revelator, and stops by Crossroads KC on Thursday night with Trampled Under Foot and Scrapomatic.
The St. Louis Regional Chamber & Growth Association says Aerotropolis, as it’s being called, will generate thousands of new jobs and billions of dollars in new economic activity. The skeptics include the liberal Missouri Budget Project, the libertarian Show-Me Institute, and a guy who co-wrote a recent book with the very title Aerotropolis. “Calling some cargo flights and warehouses an aerotropolis doesn’t make it one,” Greg Lindsay, the author and Fast Company writer, said in a tweet in July.
One of the fiercest opponents of Aerotropolis lives in Prairie Village. Michael Webber, an air cargo consultant and self-described “insurgent,” spent a portion of his summer pelting the media with criticism of the project, which he has described as a “boondoggle” and a “white elephant.”
Hatch green chile peppers are no ordinary peppers. Named for the New Mexico town, Hatch, where most of these distinctive peppers are grown, the chiles are harvested in late August and September. (Hatch has declared itself, modestly, to be the Chile Capital of the World; the city's annual Chile Festival is this weekend, if you're traveling in that direction.)
Last Saturday, at the Hen House Market at Interstate 29 and 64th Street, I watched a customer wheeling a cart piled with six big crates of the peppers. He says he roasts them and freezes them so he can use them all year. Saturday was the first Hen House "Peach and Pepper Throwdown" featuring Hatch peppers and Missouri-grown Bader peaches. There was even a representative from Hatch, New Mexico, to give a little lecture on that city's best-known export.
Last year, to help this paper mark its 30th anniversary, I called Johnson to talk about his days in KC record stores and alt-weekly publishing. He was gracious and funny, and his recollections and opinions — given more airing than a conversation limited by my deadline and his health allowed — could have, and should have, filled a book.
Smart guys that they are, the Outsiders are unsure of what to make of the 2011 Chiefs. When the analysts fed Kansas City's numbers into the STRAM 6000*, the computer began to smoke and wheeze. This is from the 2011 almanac:
Whatever is in the air, just about every big-name chef is set to visit Kansas City in the next three months as part of an avalanche of new cookbooks and food personality tours. And whether you're the one responsible for dinner nightly or simply setting the DVR to record a nightly reality cooking show, odds are that you're going to want tickets to see some of the celebrity chefs coming to town.
With allegations that a special-needs 9-year-old student was hit by his teacher, that's how. KSPR-TV out of Springfield reports that the teacher assaulted the boy before taking him to get help. From the station:
"He told her [it's unclear from the story who this is] that the teacher hit him in the head with a taco. He said she had to take the lettuce out of his ear before they went to the school nurse," his grandmother said.
I get that you don't want to come right out and say you're moving here. That's probably why Jeff Russell, your real-estate manager, told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram that a potential regional distribution center "would support expansion into Texas and possibly into neighboring states."
But we're about as easy a burger-eating town as you're going to find. We don't want frills. We don't want gimmicks. We just want a proper burger, the way you've been making them for more than 60 years.
I'm not a regular fan of baseball, but I know the game, and I know…

Next season will be even more fun, I'm sure.
