THIS WEEK: Friday, February 3rd 2012 @ 7:30 pm
(Rebroadcast Sunday @ 11 am )
HOLLYWOOD CASINO: Kansas City’s newest casino finally opens its doors at the Kansas Speedway. But can our metro support another big mecca to gaming?
SUPERBOWL AD: Sunday is the Superbowl. And Kansas City’s Kauffman Foundation is paying an undisclosed sum to air a 30-second spot during what is one of the most highly sought after, most expensive time-slots in all of television.
MISSOURI PRESIDENTIAL PRIMARY: Tuesday is officially Presidential Primary Election Day in Missouri. Does that mean you might be bumping into Mitt Romney at your local coffee shop this weekend or perhaps standing in line at Gates BBQ with Ron Paul or Rick Santorum?
DISSOLVING THE DISTRICT: New legislative proposal would permanently dissolve the KCMO school district and require neighboring districts take over city schools. Meanwhile, generous tax credits would be offered district students to attend parochial and private schools.
BIOSCIENCE AUDIT: Troubling audit into Olathe based Kansas Bioscience Authority finds scrubbed computer files, destroyed documents, misuse of funds and questionable management.
