Last week we brought you Midtown Kansas City stories about opposition to a proposed QuikTrip site, the overcrowded animal shelter, and the history of Armour Boulevard.

If you find any of that Midtown Kansas City news interesting, you can read more on our website or on Facebook or sign up on our website for a daily email news digest each weekday. You can also subscribe to our Twitter updates (@midtownkcposter).

Opponents of a proposed QuikTrip at 33rd and Southwest Trafficway, representing the Valentine, Volker, Coleman Highlands and Roanoke neighborhoods, delivered more than 1000 petition signatures to city hall on Friday.

We reported on several issues coming out of city hall, including the increase in the number of people getting traffic tickets. A proposed change would open up more jobs to felons, and the city may allow sale of locally-produced wine at the city market.

The city also asked for help identifying laws that are on the books, but perhaps don’t make sense any longer.

The animal shelter is full, and the operators launched an adoption drive early, hoping to alleviate some of the overcrowding.

In Midtown history, we brought you a look back at the day when Armour Boulevard was covered with mansions.

The Nelson-Atkins unveiled an ancient Indian shrine that has never been on display to the public before.
