Students headed back to school – and back to work – at Cristo Rey High School.

Another vinyl record store has opened in Midtown, Records by Merritt on Westport Road.

A painting from the Nelson-Atkins Museum is going to be used on a postage stamp.

In our Uncovering History series, we had a look back at 31st and Troost when it was called Millionaire’s Row, and saw how much it changed over the years.
