The News Conference That Didn’t Happen & Feelings vs. Facts

On Monday afternoon, just after two o’clock, the Tribune received an email from Pete Comer announcing that there would be a press conference in less than four hours at the Lotawana Park across from City Hall. He didn’t specify who was going to speak, and when asked, stated it was Thomas Strannigan. I replied to Mr. Comer and said this was a very short time frame, and I was still recovering from open heart surgery. I asked if Thomas was just reading a statement or would Thomas be taking questions from the press. The response:

“Thomas Strannigan will be speaking but as of now will not be taking questions until he gets more information from his lawyer.” – Pete Comer

Submitted Letter to the Editor by 
Lenny Cacchio,
Lee’s Summit, MO

Although a member of the Charter Commission, I am writing this letter as a concerned private citizen. What follows are opinions and do not necessarily reflect the views of my fellow Commissioners.

I hope that others besides me have noticed that none of the articles have addressed any specifics on the proposed amendments. Instead the focus has been on alleged corruption and kickbacks related to eight of the twelve commissioners.

How the Lee’s Summit House of Cards Fell

Submitted opinion by
Vicki Tarpley,
Regional marketing professional and Lee's Summit Citizen

On November 30, 2016, local officials joined project developer colleagues Bill Brown, Phillip Short and their attorney Christine Bushyhead to break ground on one of the most talked about developments in Lee’s Summit—Paragon Star, a $400 million soccer/retail/entertainment mixed use complex development on the west side of Lee’s Summit. For the local area, what really began that day was the Lee’s Summit version of House of Cards--the popular TV series that shows a gang of people using a web of deceit, politics and money, legal maneuvering and personal motives to win their prize.

Senate Adopts Resolution on REAL ID

The Senate voted last week to adopt Senate Resolution 270, legislation I filed urging Congress to repeal the REAL ID Act of 2005. It has been 12 years since Congress passed REAL ID, which is why I first think it is important to remind everyone of the circumstances surrounding its passage.
