Save lastKCforest asks us to attend the Forest Re-Zoning Meeting Tuesday, October 16, 2018 at 9 AM – 12 PM Kansas City – City Hall, 26th floor, Council Chamber

Since the Line Creek Forest is not zoned to accommodate a large high school (it’s zoned for agriculture), the Park Hill School District must first get approval from the City Plan Commission before proceeding with construction.

The school district recently submitted a Special Use Permit to the KC Plan Commission for approval, which will be considered on Oct. 16.

All are welcome! And there is no minimum time or number for public comments.

If the Special Use Permit is approved, then the school will be able to continue their development plans. Currently these plans do not include ANY conservation plan for ANY part of their forest acreage.   lastkcforest.com

 

What’s that sound? Stan Slaughter!

Medical Marijuana On The Ballot In Missouri

There are three ballot initiatives that would legalize medical marijuana for the November 6th election. Amendment 2 is sponsored by New Approach Missouri, Amendment 3 is sponsored by Find The Cure and Proposition C is sponsored by Missourians For Patient Care. All three gained their spot on the ballot through the initiative process. Amendment two and Proposition C were both the result of grass roots organizing while Amendment was funded solely by Dr Brad Bradshaw.

Today host Jamie Jackson talks with Jack Cardetti of New Approach Missouri about Amendment 2 and Mark Habbas of Missourians For Patient’s Care about Prop C. Our efforts to get a spokesperson for Find The Cures, Amendment 3 were unsuccessful.

This week on the Heartland Labor Forum, we’ll ask: Is work as we know it disappearing as the middle class gets squeezed, and then gigged? We talk to two authors about two books Squeezed: Why Our Families Can’t Afford America and Gigged: The End of the Job and the Future of Work. Tune in Thursday at 6pm, rebroadcast Friday at 5am.


Oscar-winning director Damien Chazelle goes from “La La Land” to outer space with “First Man.” Ryan Gosling plays the ultra-reserved astronaut Neil Armstrong and Claire Foy is his devoted wife, Janet. It’s beautifully produced, but like Armstrong himself, “First Man” is emotionally aloof.

 

“Bad Times at the El Royale” is half of a great movie. This slick and violent grindhouse exploitation flick is involving and features a great cast, but it wears out its welcome in the bloated second half. It’s overdone and overlong but will be a guilty pleasure for some.

 

Amandla Stenberg gives a star making performance “The Hate U Give,” a YA offering about an African American teen walking a tightrope between her poor black neighborhood and the upscale white prep school she attends. This social drama has a lot more meat on its bones than most teen movies.

 

“Colette” is a decadent biopic about the infamous French writer. Keira Knightley plays the author of the semi-autobiographical novels about her bohemian lifestyle that scandalized early 20th century Paris. “Colette” may lack inspiration, but it’s never dull.

 

“Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween” is a sequel to the 2015 hit horror movie for kids inspired by R. L. Stine’s novels. Slappy the evil ventriloquist dummy is back to cause mayhem in this well-produced but completely predictable outing.

 

Mary Elizabeth Winstead’s impressive performance is the main draw of “All About Nina,” the tale of a struggling standup comic with serious sexual, addiction and relationship issues. It’s a decadent but well told story.

 

Also opening this week, Robert Redford stars as an elderly bank robber in “The Old Man and the Gun.” “Black 87” is an historic Irish thriller set during the Great Famine of 1847. The 18th annual Kansas International Film Festival takes place October 12-18th at the Glenwood Arts in Leawood. More information is available at kansasfilm.com.


The fourth big screen adaptation of the old Hollywood backstage story is both a critical and box office hit. Bradley Cooper (“The Hangover”) and pop music’s Lady Gaga play romantically linked musicians in “A Star is Born.” Cooper produced, directed and co-wrote the film as well as providing his own music.

Jamie Jackson and Craig Lubow interview Chris Wolfenbarger about Amendment 2 on the Missouri ballot for medical marijuana  from the patient’s perspective.


Missouri National Guard Sergeant Chris Wolfenbarger (retired) talks about why he supports Amendment 2, one of three options on the November ballot, to legalize medical marijuana. Chris was medically retired for wounds received after being injured by a suicide bomber during his tour of duty in Afghanistan. He discusses why the majority of Missouri doctors, nurses, and patient groups support Amendment 2 and not Amendment 3. Chris said that Amendment 2 is also veteran-centric since revenue from medical marijuana sales will go to fund veterans’ healthcare services through the Missouri Veterans Commission. He also discusses why, as a patient, it gives him a sense of certainty and security that the medical community supports Amendment 2.


Regulation Designed to Tax Protesters For First Amendment Activity

The Trump administration has another first for America. It wants demonstrators to pay to use public parks, sidewalks and streets to engage in free speech.The effect of taxing protesters in the nation’s capital will be to restrict access for First Amendment activities to the very few who can afford it. Participatory democracy will be no more.

Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke in August announced the White House’s rewriting of regulations governing free speech and assembly on public lands under federal jurisdiction.

The National Park Service will charge protesters for so-called event management expenses. Barricades and fencing that police may erect, trash removal, sanitation charges, permit application charges, salaries of personnel deployed to monitor protests, as well as cost deemed harmful to turf.

The Park Service claims protest-related costs are burdensome, and said that last years Womens March imposed a pretty heavy cost on the government.

Guest ” Mara Verheyden-Hilliard, co-chair of the Guilds National Mass Defense Committee. co-founder of the Partnership for Civil Justice Fund in Washington, DC, she secured $13.7 million for about 700 of the 2000 IMF/World Bank protesters in Becker, et al. v. District of Columbia, et al., while also winning pledges from the District to improve police training about First Amendment issues. She won $8.25 million for approximately 400 class members in Barham, et al. v. Ramsey, et al. (alleging false arrest at the 2002 IMF/World Bank protests). She served as lead counsel in Mills, et al v. District of Columbia (obtaining a ruling that D.C.s seizure and interrogation police checkpoint program was unconstitutional); in Bolger, et al. v. District of Columbia (involving targeting of political activists and false arrest by law enforcement based on political affiliation); and in National Council of Arab Americans, et al. v. City of New York, et al. (successfully challenging the citys efforts to discriminatorily restrict mass assembly in Central Parks Great Lawn stemming from the 2004 RNC protests.)
