The Latest: Kansas City airport halts flights during storm

The Kansas City International Airport has temporarily suspended flights and moved people from the terminals to parking garage tunnels for shelter because of storms passing through the area including tornadoes.

Passengers were in parking garages for about an hour before being allowed to return to the terminals.

But the storm left so much debris on the airfield that flights remained delayed, the airport’s Twitter account said. It wasn’t immediately clear when flights would resume. Phone and email messages left with airport spokesman Joe McBride were not immediately returned.

At least 11 injuries have been reported in Douglas County, Kansas, after the county west of Kansas City was hit with a large destructive tornado.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports that Douglas County Sheriff’s Departmen...

NATURALLY STATED: Kansas may be holding seat for ASU athletic director

The day after the University of Kansas fired its athletic director, Arkansas State University Athletic Director Terry Mohajir stood in the center of his office at First National Bank Arena in Jonesboro, measuring the seat of a metallic bar chair with a ruler.

After a few slides of the ruler, he looked up.

"Here, have a seat," he said. "What do you think? Comfortable?"

It was.

Mohajir walked toward his office’s door and called for another university employee to test out the chair.

Through the first floor window, bulldozers and cranes were assembling the early outline of the on-campus hotel and restaurant, which broke ground earlier this May.

Looking further north, construction continued for ASU’s $29 million north end zone renovation at Centennial Bank Stadium...

Kansas, Oklahoma approve religious veto on LGBT adoptions

Supporters of such measures argued that the core issue is protecting a group’s right to live out its religious faith, while critics saw them as attacks on LGBT rights. (AP)


State lawmakers in Kansas and Oklahoma have approved legislation to grant legal protections to faith-based adoption agencies that cite their religious beliefs for not placing children in LGBT homes.

Supporters of such measures argued that the core issue is protecting a group’s right to live out its religious faith, while critics saw them as attacks on LGBT rights. Both Kansas and Oklahoma have GOP-controlled legislatures and governors, but in Kansas, the proposal split Republicans.

The Kansas Senate approved a bill early Friday morning, 24-15, that would prevent faith-based agencies from being barred f...

Jackie Guyton was feeling adrift. The Nebraska native had recently moved from Hendersonville, NC, to Shawnee, KS, due to her husband’s job change. A former hair stylist, Guyton was now a stay-at-home mom with two young daughters in school all day.

The girls, Morgan and Allison, had taken inexpensive tennis lessons in North Carolina, and Jackie was anxious for them to continue the routine in their new hometown.

Jackie had never touched a racquet, though she did play volleyball in college. She signed her daughters up for lessons at the Genesis Health Clubs in Overland Park, KS, watching from courtside but never considering joining in.

“I just assumed that you had to have played for a long time to play as ...

Stag’s Creek office building revitalizes gateway into eastern Shawnee

Submitted photo. Enlarge photo.

The new Stag’s Creek office building, at the northwest corner of Shawnee Mission Parkway and Goddard, is set to open for business April 2.

For several years, it was a decayed and neglected commercial pocket nestled in one of the metro area’s busiest corridors.

As drivers soared west down Shawnee Mission Parkway, into the city limits, they were greeted by the sight of abandoned restaurants, vacant storefronts and a crumbling strip mall at the northwest intersection of Goddard.

That eyesore is now a memory.

Sitting prominently in its place is the brand new Stag’s Creek development, which features two new dining establishments and a sparkling new office building.

Raising Cane’s, a popular chicken strip restaurant, opened last summer and Andy’s Frozen Custard op...
