BISHOP GUILTY: Kansas City Bishop Robert Finn is found guilty in a Jackson County courtroom of failing to report an abusive priest to state authorities. Finn is the first Catholic bishop in the country convicted of failing to report suspected child abuse.
GOOGLE DEADLINE: Midnight Sunday is the final deadline to sign up for Google Fiber. But who’s taking advantage of the ultra-high speed Kansas City experiment and who’s being left behind?
OVERLAND PARK ARBORETUM: The American Family Association this week says it’s a step closer to getting the sculpture of a bare-breasted woman taking her own picture removed. The group delivers 4,700 signatures to the Johnson county Clerk. If enough signatures are verified, a grand jury would be convened in 60 days. The grand jury, according to news accounts, will decide if the artwork will stay or go and if charges would be filed against council members.
RESIGNATION LETTERS: Why KCMO Mayor Sly James has been asking for the signed but undated resignation letters off all the appointees to every board and commission under his purview?
CLEAVER: The Democrats just finished their big convention in Charlotte. And last week it was the Republicans in Tampa. But why was it that the only elected politician from Kansas or Missouri making any podium speeches at either convention was Emanuel Cleaver?
