Lawyers representing the downtown streetcar district asked an appeals court judge to make Stretch and a River Market businesswoman post a $20 million bond in order to keep fighting the project in court.
Streetcar advocates are nervous that lingering litigation will cramp financing deadlines for the $100 million project. Monday's court filing calls Grinders owner Jeff "Stretch" Rumaner and Sue Ann Burke a couple of "disgruntled taxpayers" - as though the courts are full of litigants who are not disgruntled - standing in the way of a 1 percent sales-tax increase and special assessment that will finance the two-mile streetcar stretching from the River Market to Crown Center.
The annual MU-KU Border Showdown at Arrowhead is, sadly, a thing of the past. But today, there's good news for Kansas City college-football fans. The Chiefs and city officials announced the creation of a new Kansas City annual football game called the Missouri Classic during a press conference Monday at Arrowhead.
The first edition of the game will feature the Grambling State University Tigers taking on the Lincoln University Blue Tigers on September 14. Speaking at the announcement, which was attended by almost a dozen Lincoln alumni (the school is in Jefferson City), Mayor Sly James said Classic further cements the city's reputation as a sports town and "a city with an open heart."
"I have faith and confidence in Charlie," Watson says. "In the long term, I just saw myself growing and doing my own thing. This is really about me wanting to do my own thing."
You can stop holding dates on your calendar - Kansas City Councilman Russ Johnson won't indulge faraway civic gadfly Clay Chastain's offer for a debate.
In an e-mail to local media dripping with exasperation, Bedford, Virginia's top transit buff said Johnson aide Teresa Martinez explained that the Northland councilman "declined to take action" on Chastain's offer to debate transit issues.
The ribs of Oklahoma Joe's (which chef Curtis Stone recently called the best restaurant that no one has ever heard of) were picked as the signifier of Kansas, while Arthur Bryant's burnt-end sandwich is the official food of Missouri. If you're planning a road trip, Zagat also recently did a state-by-state guide to coffee shops, and Java Break in Lawrence was the Sunflower State's representative.
The bad news is, they're playing the Charlotte Bobcats, one of the worst franchises in the league. Although, Kemba Walker is a player. With any luck, the We Beelieve and Bring Back the Buzz swarm will get their way, and Charlotte will reclaim its Hornets moniker. And there's always a chance that Michael Jordan could show up to watch his team play.
