Re: “Melissa Stevens – heir to the Patricia Stevens Modeling School – refuses to be forgotten

My parents were smart enough and I was lucky enough to be able to attend a Patricia Stevens Finishing School in Long Beach, California in the 60's. I was just a kid but enjoyed the Saturdays when I knew I would be learning something new and different about myself. And what I learned then, I still use today! Actually, they wanted me to become a model, but I chose a different path. Keep up the good work! I'm glad to see you're still around today.

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

I just found this article & to say I'm blown away is an understatement. I worked for David @ Panopoly back in 2001. After setting up his computer tracking system and Machines so that he could track where and what was done and needed to be done. I was fired. Now I'm not so mad @ what he did. It could have been way worse.

Re: “Welcome to Tony's Kansas City

Tony is the "real" eyes and ears of Killa City. Rather than report sex stories (Channel 4) or scramble to push "eye candy" at the viewers (Channels 5-9-41) 9 yours is a fail, Tony calls out the clowns that dot the political and criminal playground called Killa City (KC).

The "last Free Speech" bastion. U go Tony.

Re: “The upcoming convention hotel is getting a lot more than $35 million in public funding

Let me ask the Magical Wizard what he thinks about all this ???

Mr. Magical Wizard, what do you think about all this, what do you see down the road in the future, Mr. Wizard ???

WIZARD Response :

I see the Hotel getting built, and then within a few short years, being SOLD and changing hands, several times, then in the end, KCMO City Hall will need a New Building and devise a way to take over the Building and convert it into the New KCMO City Hall Building & Offices is eventually what I see happening !

But, I'm just the Illusionary Magical Wizard who sees into the Future about 7 to 10 years ahead of the times, soooo what do I know ?????

But, don't say I didn't tell ya sooooooooo ~ !!!!

Re: “Sick days at Metropolitan Community College continue as its practical-nursing program is stripped of its accreditation

As the first Dean of Health Professions and Executive Director of the Health Science Institute at the Penn Valley campus of Metropolitan Community College from Nov. 2012 until July 2014, I was highly engaged in the oversight and management of the Allied Health and Nursing programs along with the Human Simulation center. I reported to the Penn Valley President and worked with his leadership team and also served on College-wide committees under the Central office. Thus, I am in a position to comment about the positives and negatives which I observed during my time at MCC and from a perspective of having 30 years of health and higher education experiences at community college and university levels in the US and abroad. Please know that not all of the statements attributed to me are accurate and congruent with the context of my thoughts when interviewed about the sad but true situation at MCC. When offered the position, I readily accepted it because I observed that the health programs were in need of leadership from one who had a sound foundation within the health education areas and we're ready to transition to a higher performance and productivity level within the Kansas City area. It was my initial findings and observations that there were many well prepared and clinically experienced health professionals who were greatly committed to providing the necessary education and training for healthcare professionals for the KC area. Unfortunately, I soon became aware of myriad dysfunctional aspects associated with the MCC and Penn Valley leadership. Some of these have already been identified in print but in my experienced wisdom there are significant others which are limiting higher potential and success outcomes for MCC. In reference to the LPN program losing its ACEN accreditation, for the record, Ms. Claiborne sought assistance from others at MCC which may have included Kathy Walter Mack. I am not cognizant of who she sought help from. Several health programs which sought my wisdom and direction during their respective accreditations were successful and benefited from my input. Please know that accreditation for an allied health or nursing program is a voluntary decision by the academic institution. In the majority of health programs, national recognition via program accreditation is testimony of program quality and represents equivalency to a set of peer and nationally established standards. I am personally saddened that after 35 plus years that the LPN program is no longer in this cohort of fine nursing programs. For years, MCC and the fine professional health educators of the Health Science Institute have provided many professional health care practitioners for Kansas City and adjacent counties. Excluding the LPN program, the programs had exceptional student outcome markers typically exceeding 95% for student retention, graduate national certification pass rates and graduate employment. I find it unfortunate that the MCC and Penn Valley leadership has not stood-by and enhanced their support of and recognition of their health programs. I encourage readers who are concerned about quality higher education for the Kansas City area to continue to raise the questions necessary to bring about further and deeper investigation into the dysfunctional leadership at MCC for the benefit of all citizens and tax payers!

Re: “Lucky Orange takes real-time Web analytics to new levels

I have been using Lucky Orange for over a year. Their support has been excellent and in the first 4 days I found many issues with the sign up process on my site I would have never known about if it wasn't for the Visitor Recordings. Big Thumbs up for Lucky Orange- a great Kansas City company!

Re: “Can the tiny-house movement grow big in Kansas City?
