A new study gathered information about vacant lots in Kansas City and offered some potential solutions.

Kansas City got new funds for transit, focusing on getting people to jobs.

The University of Kansas Hospital is fighting back against a plan to change the way livers are distributed for transplanting, saying livers donated in the Midwest should not go to east and west coast recipients.

The city cracked down on people who have not paid their earnings tax.  The city council, meantime, further considered tougher laws on domestic violence.

Our Uncovering History project offered a look back at postcards of the Paseo from around 1900. We also invited people to share their photos and stories with us in a book on Midtown neighborhood history.
