Re: “Johnson County's Ed Peterson wants to unseat Ed Eilert

I'm shocked that the Pitch didn't use this headline for the article.....Johnson County's Ed Peterson lusts for Ed Eilert's seat! It would have had thousands of more reads and tweets from the core Pitch "target" reader. Sometimes they just don't know the difference from irreverent and irrelevant.....but then again that's why they can't get hired by the Star (sic).

Re: “Developers lay out their visions for the Kansas City of tomorrow

Unfortunately KCK 's future is on the chopping block. The new mega airport of 2020 is going to be located there and downtown KCK and surrounding neighborhoods will be razed with little or no notification to its residents and business owners. Thats how we roll in the future!!

Re: “Developers lay out their visions for the Kansas City of tomorrow

Two questions: It is obvious downtown KCMO will continue to become more residential. Generally speaking, do downtown dwellers also work downtown, or work hither and thither across KC, MO and KC, KS?

Also: Where in Columbus Park will those family homes be located? Last I checked, it was pretty tight over there.

Re: “Developers lay out their visions for the Kansas City of tomorrow

I'm disappointed that there wasn't any mention of KCK in the article. What's up with that? We have a lot happening just 1/4 mile over the water from downtown and yet I have to hear about the hinterlands of Overland Park. Are you not interested in places with poor people, or maybe it's blacks and hispanics that you'd like to ignore….

Re: “Developers lay out their visions for the Kansas City of tomorrow

For this Vision of the future to actually happen, 1st, were gonna have to have real City Leaders who don't play political correctness games, and Mayor Sly James isn't it !!!

2nd, going to have to get rid of the Violent degenerate Gang Banging Rats that are attempting to take over the city and destroy it with their Drugs, Drive by shootings, Car chases etc.

3rd we'll need a real Mayor (not Sly James), and a real Police Chief, and a Tough Proscuting attorney at the Jackson County Court house and Jean Peters and her staff, aren't cutting it, with their many plea deals they cut with the Degenerate criminals !

Till any of this happens, the above mentioned article is just a PIPE DREAM and nothing else !!!

Re: “Developers lay out their visions for the Kansas City of tomorrow

Start with our embarrassing airport and work your way back south. No more wasted money on 18th and Vine. Make the city inviting somehow. Where have we gone wrong and cities like Austin, Minneapolis, Denver draw creative and eclectic thinking. Change our attitude from a stockyard cowtown to a true metropolitan and open city. How can they do it and we fail miserably. Ugh. One giant suburban bore.

River walk.. some sort of river development. Bars and restaurants with patios overlooking the (admittedly ugly and smelly) river.

Re: “That new new Westport: A party district grows up

Having worked at both the Beaumont club and America's pub in the late 90's right up to 2,000, I can tell you that Pub actually had many less fights inside on a given weekend then we did at the Beumont club, and the bouncer staff was trained with almost army efficiency ( by ex army officers) to break up the fights and get them outside. Once a month they ran scenarios and trained on how to get to a fight, break it up and get it out the door as fast and safely as possible. The management mostly came in to Pub after experience in the other larger clubs were always on the lookout for the known troublemakers and mostly kept them out. They instituted a no rap policy, required shirts to be tucked in, and banned watch caps, baggy pants and most other things that tended to bring in a thug crowd. I can tell you that there were many other clubs that came through during that time, Thirsy's, fallout, etc. that had more violence, and also a culture of hard drugs.
There was a lot of violence in the area, and because Beaumont and America's pub were beside the two largest parking areas in westport, a lot of the violence centered there. I get a little angry at the race issue discussed here. We had as many drunk girls fighting, and as many drunk jocks and frat boys starting problems as African Americans. One of the owners of Pub once told us in a meeting " We want no trash of any race, creed, color, age or religious affiliation in here, and we are going to do everything in our power to keep them out. In my 4 years there, they did their best to do that.

Re: “Johnson County's Ed Peterson wants to unseat Ed Eilert

Dear Robert Roberge, Jr.,

Political capital is a commodity. Most people don't give a damn about the issues because the issues really aren't that important. It explains voter apathy and low voter turnout. Leave community activism to the politicians. It's why they exist. They tend to create the disturbance they want to run against, and then somehow win the election fighting paper tigers. Secondly, there is nothing wrong about raising awareness. However, if you want to do that, try becoming a true journalist and fight against the abuses of government. Investigate so the rest of us don't have to. Editorialize "with power" and not on some blogger website.

But the idea that people can somehow manufacture passion on storm sewer improvements (etc..) is absurd. I am a civil engineer, and I am aware of the giant need in the KC Metro of new sewers, but that doesn't make it a campaign issue.

As long as the politicians aren't felons, I'm pretty much ok... My general reaction to your comment was probably more one of our current president, President Obama. I get tired of hearing "community activism" as if it is a super noble thing to do. I just think "activism" of that sort is a solution looking for a problem, and it often needlessly costs taxpayers. (Obamacare, etc.)

Re: “At whose bidding has the Hickman Mills school board been operating?

UPDATE : 4/6/2014

From some Supposed Reporter with KSHB TV in Kansas City

Tonight this Reporter publishes a report on the KSHB Web Site, that says a "Smear Campaign" against Hickman Mills school board members is extremely harsh.

Read this Reporters poorly excuted report into this story, I can't tell if shes just absolutely clueless, or trying to provide "Cover" and Spin the Facts for those that are Guilty ????

Either way this is 1 poor report by a supposed reporter with supposed experience at reporting, obviously she didn't do any research before reporting on this Hickman mills school board fiasco, if I didn't know any better, their trying to infiltrate the news media to Spin the Facts and look innocent, when their actually guilty.

KSHB Story read it for yourself, if they don't take it down and attempt to hide what their doing by this reporter : Lisa Benson.

Re: “David Riggs' cons lacked artistry but never daring

Hey 007,
since you don't have the balls to use your real name, Riggs helped a lot of s in Aviation - Nathan East, tried to steal his plane, Adam Baker, stole 4 of his, the kid in KC who's Glassair he crashed then threatened to kill. If Riggs hadn't tried to screw you, he just hadn't got to you yet! Goldfinger

Re: “David Riggs' cons lacked artistry but never daring

I know you all hate Dave,and rightfully so,but there is another side to him.He was like a modern day Robin Hood,believe it or not there were many small guys in aviation that he helped out. Iam not saying what he did was right,but cut the guy some slack,he is gone.
Oh thats right good deeds dont sell book,news,or movies.

Re: “Mark Woodworth's two murder convictions were overturned, but Missouri wants to try him a third time

There was no bullet in Lyndel Robertson liver.
There is no evidence that the casings from the trunk are the same type as the ones used in the murder. The report done in 1999 by the highway patrol say they do not match the Remington gold coat.
"The Mark Woodworth Innocence Project" might provide a story of legal wrangling but the truth came out in the websites
https://www.facebook.com/Mark.Woodworth.TheOneInnocent.Man
which is a neutral site that showed how the evidence was trumped up .
and "The Masters Report" group which entered the court record.

The legal wrangling could have been shortened by a decade if someone had bothered to check medical records to see that there was never a bullet in Mr Robertson's liver. There were some fragments he had removed in an out patient procedure form his chest cavity. This got trumped up to life threatening surgery that would produce a "Whole" bullet they could get a ballistics result to convict the neighbor kid. This Brandon guy may have done the crime but he didn't provide the evidence to convict Mark Woodworth. He has been a mistake in legal wrangling from the get go

The fact that paper such as this don;t correct their errors is another problem with the legal system. Pride.


There are many other errors in this story because the of the sources. But it is well written and the author has talent and I enjoyed reading it.
