Around 2 p.m. Thursday, police were notified of a dead body in a wooded area near the park.
Kansas City police have called Streeter's death "suspicious." KC police say her death has not yet been ruled a homicide but is being investigated as one. If Streeter's death is classifed as a homicide, it will be the city's 100th of 2012. After the jump, see the KCPD's latest homicide analysis.
Streeter had a number of arrests in Wyandotte County between 2002 and 2012. Her last arrest - September 9, 2012 - was for alleged possession of methamphetamine and delivery or manufacture of drug paraphernalia.
If you have information about Streeter's death, call the TIPS Hotline at 816-474-8477.
As someone who wore Dockers at the age of 12, I can't disagree with anyone who doesn't want pockets full of quarters, nickels and dimes. It's a comfort issue.
On the other hand, without coins in the pockets of my suit, what would I have to give street urchins for my daily paper? As Cee-Lo Green says, How will I ever keep my lady if I don't have enough change in my pocket? Guess what I'm given every time I pay for something with a dollar bill? What if I come across a wishing well or a gumball machine?
Now, had Clay said men don't like coins in their wallets, that's a message I can get behind. I can't tell you how awful it is to try and sit on a quarter that's jammed into the middle of my billfold.
Zarda bought buns at the grocery store before the supply ran out and has Bimbo Bakery working on a hoagie roll for their sandwiches. Arthur Bryant's turned to Roma Bakery for its sliced white bread. But as Bryant's manager Willis Simpson explained to Fox 4, the secret was never in the Wonder Bread:
"No one has said anything, it's most about the meat," Simpson said.
Amen, Mr. Simpson.
Steve Cole never thought that sitting in on a Greater Kansas City Restaurant Association board meeting would lead to a new job, but the former restaurateur - he operated his legendary midtown restaurant, Cafe Allegro, from 1984 to 2002 - is a past president of the local organization as well as a past president of the Missouri Restaurant Association and likes to keep current with the work of the hospitality industry's trade organization.
Among the old friends he saw at that GKCRA meeting in September was Robert Bonney, the CEO of the Missouri Restaurant Association, who informed him that Brina Bruno, the western regional director for the GKCRA for a decade, was leaving the organization to take a new position with the Roasterie and that the Missouri Restaurant Association planned to create a different position within the organization. Bonney encouraged Cole to apply for the job.
Last month, Cole officially joined the Missouri Restaurant Association full time as chief operating officer and executive director; his duties include membership development, legislative issues, education, creating marketing resources, and providing operational support for the more than 600 restaurant and allied members of the Missouri Restaurant Association.
There's an old proverb about cooking fish: "For fish to taste right, it must swim three times - in water, in butter and in wine."
Everyone has his or her favorite preparation for both seafood and the local finned creatures (in these parts, mostly catfish), and butter and wine sound like excellent components, although there's something for almost every taste, from fish sticks to lobster bisque and grilled trout to seared scallops. This morning at 10 a.m. on KCUR's Central Standard Friday program, Fat City's Charles Ferruzza will join panelists Emily Farris, Gloria Gale and Mary Bloch to discuss the best places to find fabulous fish dishes.
Fat City readers are encouraged to join the conversation by calling 816-235-2888.
Everybody's favorite story from last Sunday - that Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles asked for Denver quarterback Peyton Manning's autograph - took another slight turn today. Manning told USA Today that swapping signatures among opponents is nothing new.
"You sign for somebody's brother or mother or a fan - that's what you do," Manning told the paper. "Players constantly are trading. You're signing for teammates, and everybody's got a high school auction or something. That's part of the deal."
That's a reasonable take on what has become a strangely popular and polarizing debate. Was Charles pathetic and starstruck? Or was it no big deal? The Internet has been arguing about it since the video was put up. Now Manning is putting the blame for the nonstory blowing up on the KCTV Channel 5 cameraman who filmed the signature hand-off.
"I don't even know why that cameraman was in that zone.That was kind of annoying," he told USA Today. Yeah, it's always annoying when people do their jobs.
"The Boley Building was a major work for its time, constructed in a 'curtain wall design' - an exterior wall of glass that hangs on the building rather than being a supportive part of the structure," says architectural historian Keith Eggener, professor of American art and architecture and director of graduate studies at the University of Missouri-Columbia. Eggener gives a lecture on the work of Louis Curtiss at 2 p.m. Sunday, December 2, at the Kansas City Central Library, 14 West 10th Street.
Eggener thinks the building at 3240 Main could be a Curtiss design: "It sure looks like it. If not, it's someone channeling Louis Curtiss."
