Re: “Cauthen's Travels

Since the Funk says he's so big into keeping KC's budget in tip-top shape, when is he going to ask his manager for our money back? Maybe then all of us taxpayers could take a trip with Cauthen's refund money.

Re: “Cauthen's Travels

Extremely lacking article. Where's the news here? Let alone the writer making misleading and inappropriate accusatory comments on the price of travel. What's the problem with 6K for a week in Europe? This is lower than a friend of mine spent a couple years ago. When I go to the Halifax area (family) I drop more than $2K. This article should not have gotten past the asst. editors desk let alone been published. Last, most of these conferences need to have a representative of Kansas City and someone has to go that adequatly represent the city. This is the mayors job. Is the author clueless as to North American Trade issues and how much of that goes through the local highways and railroads? Learn to do some real reporting.

Re: “Breakfast With Champions

Retired KCMO PD, 18 years Federal Poice in KC, Resident since 1962, age 67 living in northland area.
I waited a long time to vote for a Statesmen instead of lawyer or rich businessman in my city, for Mayor.
My Brooks is a good man that should stay on in public service at City Hall, but he doesn't share the dream I have for my town.
Mark is in a position to make the biggest difference in city politics since Pendercast was taken out of effective politics here in KC.
I agree with Marks assesment of todays spending on projects that effect the established wealth instead of John or Jane Doe, that gets up every day, scraps the snow off their old car or truck and heads for work downtown, to try to carve out a living for His or Her's family.
This now is one of the highest taxed cities in the country. Taxes disquised as 'fees'.handling costs'etc. is increadable and getting worst.
Mark, we don't need more taxation, just better handling of the budget. We might even eventually reduce taxes if down right.
Bring 'Sunshine' into the policy making and spending meetings.
Joe

Where do they mayors "friends" live? I'll bet half of them don't live in Kansas City.

Re: “Breakfast With Champions

Mayor's letter interpreted...

Attention passengers:

Regularly scheduled gravy train service will end shortly. As your conductor, I have guided the train through downtown and the blighted west Plaza. I established ferry service to the Northland, adding stops in needy Briarcliff and at the edge of the golden doughnut, Zona Rosa. We have maintained a 24-hour club car where you could grab a quick TIF snack or a satisfying SuperTIF entree.

Sadly, future service will likely be, at best, sporadic and involve really icky neighborhoods.

I write you from a state of near hysteria as I realize the effects of this service reduction will become most noticeable to you as I begin fund raising in earnest for my next endeavor. Hopefully the sixth district won't notice the cessation of train service until 2009.

Alvin B is a capable conductor. While he's prone to quoting Dickens, he's never met a TIF he didn't like. He understands what really matters - your happiness.

I expect all who owe their employment to the train to vilify that smarty pants auditor. Between the 20 of you and the 88 jobs you've created, we can ensure gravy train service for another four years.

We're in this together.

BFF,
Kay

P.S. I know some of you are real estate savvy... tips on making an
unoccupied 18,000 seat arena look lived in should go to Steve.

Re: “BPU Could Face Thousands In Fines

Well, It's no wonder that BPU didn't get the required permits. If the fines are $1,000 per megawatt X 631 megawatt=$631,000 that's a lot of money but still chump change compared to the $160 million that it would cost to be in compliance.
