Crooks Lose at Their Own Game
On May 19, an Eden Prairie resident noticed a suspicious vehicle drive into the parking lot of his condo building. The suspicious vehicle had a piece of paper duct-taped over the rear license plate.

What’s in a Name?
During his sermon Sunday morning, Reverend Gary McCann talked about names. Quite simply, the name given to us at birth that we’ve spent our lives growing into.

We’re Making Changes to Enhance Community Trust and Officers’ Well-Being
Whenever unrest between police and residents breaks out in other cities, our local media often ask me to comment about it. I don’t do that because I don’t want to lose my focus on improving trust here in Kansas City. That said, I certainly am not oblivious to what is happening with police in other […]
