Ruckus – October 20, 2011

TOPIC 1: FINN TO PEN? Bishop Robert Finn and the local diocese have been charged with failure to report child abuse. TOPIC 2: SEEMS LIKE OLD TIMES! After a lengthy absence, Phill Kline is back in the news. A Kansas disciplinary panel has recommended that Kline be indefinitely suspended from practicing law in the state. Kline, a former attorney general and district attorney, is not practicing law in Kansas. He’s teaching law in Virginia. TOPIC 3: HORATIO CAIN? Presidential hopeful Herman Cain has been critical of the “Occupy Wall Street” protestors, telling them to blame themselves if they don’t have a job and aren’t rich. Local columnist Mary Sanchez says the protestors aren’t to blame, it’s the system. And, Sanchez believes, the work ethic is still alive and well in the United States.

KCPT Ruckus – October 6, 2011

TOPIC 1: CHANGING PROSPECTS Councilman Jermaine Reed wants to change the name of Prospect Avenue to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Drive. This, he says, along with economic initiatives can revitalize and rehabilitate the Prospect area, hard hit by crime and violence. TOPIC 2: DE JA VIEW(S) Last week, Woody and Yael had dueling roasts and toasts about a familiar topic–the Kansas City E-Tax. The catalyst was Tom Hoenig’s recommendation that Kansas City dump it. TOPIC 3: POLITICAL NEWS Robin Carnahan announces that she won’t seek re-election as Secretary of State and won’t run for any other office. Others are indicating they will run for the Democratic nomination. There’s speculation that Jackson County Executive Mike Sanders might be among them. TOPIC 4: ANSWERED PRAYERS? The Mission city government has exempted churches and some nonprofit groups from the controversial driveway tax.

TOPIC 1: TEEN-FREE ZONE. The new curfew ordinance took effect last weekend and there were no problems on the Country Club Plaza. In fact, the Plaza may well have been the safest public place in the area this past Friday and Saturday. TOPIC 2: ATTACKS ON TAX. Kansas Citians are taxed in a myriad of ways as an excellent Star editorial explained last weekend. To bring some order out of the chaos, the new mayor has appointed a 16-member panel to review municipal finance and make recommendations. TOPIC 3: THE MORE THINGS CHANGE…THE MORE THEY STAY THE SAME. A new state report shows the Kansas City, Missouri, school district’s test scores fail to meet most of the state’s criteria. Some fear this will lead to the district’s loss of its provisional accreditation status. TOPIC 4: KEEP YOUR MONEY! Kansas Governor Brownback is rejecting a federal grant to help implement part of the new “Obamacare” legislation. Brownback says states need to prepare for fewer resources. Kansas applied for t...
