Re: “Tea House & Coffeepot has closed

Two things make for a more civilized city, a good tea room and a good used/rare bookstore. I was very sad when Spivey's closed. This is also a hit to KC civilized amenities.

Re: “Missouri Legislature overrides Gov. Nixon's veto of needlessly punitive abortion bill

Wow. Missouri is attempting to out-Kansas, Kansas!

I hope that this prompts women voters to go to the polls in droves.The Koch Bros and the rest of the far right can spend millions on their deceptive ads, but they cannot change a vote cast by someone who disagrees with their politics.

Re: “IKEA wasn't the only grand opening today; Walmart replaces old Superfund site in Argentine

Exactly Steve, this is an example of a development that SHOULD get TIF money instead of projects in the Plaza, western wyco or other non-depressed areas that should not receive this kind of money.

Re: “Competitive eater Jamie McDonald bears down on Succotash’s Sumo

Where in CT is his KC style BBQ place? I'm from there and when I go back to see my family I'd like to visit it.

Re: “Dennis Edwards keeps his family's grocery store alive in KCK

Love these stories. Please do more like this to highlight something good in our city! Good luck to this man and his store. Next time I'm in KCK, I'm heading there for lunch.

Re: “Missouri Legislature overrides Gov. Nixon's veto of needlessly punitive abortion bill

This causes me to wonder when will the old white men either die or quit trying to control women's bodies. This legislation will not stop abortions, it will only force women to seek alternatives that put their lives at risk. Don't they get it?

Re: “KCK got a pile of federal cash to invest in its downtown. Most of it went into a money-pit hotel

From downtown KCK you are a 240 second drive to downtown KCMO. There is no excuse for a lack of corporate office development. The only announcements they make for downtown groundbreakings are for 1-2 story small not for profits, and UG office relocations.

For God sakes don't give the money to the church's, that is a hole nother money pit that never makes it to the people it is intended for. The church's grow and so does the poverty count. Nope!!! not to the church's please.

Re: “George and Ann Taylor, Woodbridge Lane assault victims, have reportedly died

Just Ni&&ers being Ni&&ers, Call me a racist if you want, but what do you want equally among criminals, I personally have no problem with a black person but I do have a hatetrid for a Ni&&er just as I do for a Red Neck, I have no use for either. I was born and raised in Detroit, and have had Blacks, Mexicans that were and are my best friends, and my worst enemy's and each and every one of them knew, I would be the coolest person they ever met but if they want to be stupid, I would get stupid right along with them and KILL your a$$in a heart beat, and my bullets don't discriminate and everyone bleeds red. I'm 58 years old now and no longer live in Detroit but still pack my M 1911-A1 (.45cal) 24/7 = 365 days a year and If one of these young THUGS come up and f**ks with me or mine, they will be killed no matter what their race is, simple as that......

Re: “Mel Croston has resigned from the Roeland Park City Council

Gay mafia? That's what you call people that just want the same rights ever other American enjoys? More like the Catholic mafia if you ask me. Just few very vocal minority that misinterpret the Bible and don't live their faith. A church that has too many skeletons in their closet to count.

Re: “KCK got a pile of federal cash to invest in its downtown. Most of it went into a money-pit hotel

What did they expect, this was set up for failure and fodder. The Northend of KCK is a food and fuel desert. Not one grocery store or fuel station. It's crazy to me that on every corner there is a liquor store and a storefront church. They should give away the land to developers for free. Restart a plan Under the Nehemiah HUD Community Block Grants Program, This could support the construction of new modular homes in the NorthEnd sections of KCK, many programs all around the country have MPDU's (Moderate priced Development Units) these would be developed by local Church Congregations, a consortium of over a dozen or so congregations, this would involve churches to contribute donations into a revolving construction fund while HUD provides below-market rate mortgages to keep the homes affordable to occupants. The Unified Government can assemble the land and provide it to the developers at a nominal cost or no cost to facilitate construction. This would put tax money back on the books to pay for city police fire and infrastructure improvements. Something has gone wrong in my Hometown of KCK. Someone is steering these monies into the wrong pockets, and self enriching themselves to the point criminal corruption.

Re: “Dennis Edwards keeps his family's grocery store alive in KCK

Very cool. I'm going to check it out! It's a better choice. I will always try to support locally owned businesses like this as opposed to the mega-corp places like subway, etc..

Thanks for the heads up Charles.

Re: “Cliff Drive: perfect for running, biking, hiking – and driving your trash

Ive lived in the KC area for 40 years and have never had the guts to venture beyond the gates at Cliff Dr on the Paseo side. @Bryan Stalder: The fact that you ride your bike back there and havent been shot, stabbed, or at least mugged, is really impressive.
