The city council on Thursday rejected changing a city law against carrying guns while drunk to comply with state law that allows it.

The city also steered people to its new website,, which it says is an improvement because it offers a Google search bar.

There was news last week from both local universities. Rockhurst broke ground on a new academic building, while UMKC announced a new dean at the Bloch School of Management.

A new bank has opened in Midtown, and as Capitol Federal held its official ribbon cutting, it handed over a check to Operation Breakthrough and announced a relationship with the Kansas City Art Institute.
