Re: Layoffs at The Star

The Wichita Eagle (also owned by McClatchy) is moving to digital-only on Saturdays. https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.kansas.com/news/business/article233959167.html That's not a huge change, but not good for the future of a physical paper. They have already been printing Saturday and Sunday together ...

Re: KC metro growth and migration stats

Wichita city proper probably only has growth because they are annexing a lot of areas. If u Google wichita and see there city limits there is an island that is like 30 miles SW of Wichita by Viola KS. That can't be part of the city can it? Looks like it's a police-related facility owned by the city...

Seems to be these guys? Menu looks fine. Website says they have a location in Santa Monica and another at Pitt State in Pittsburg, KS. That seems... odd.

Re: UMKC Conservatory of Music considers move to downtown

I was going to suggest across the creek from Nelson Atkins, then realized that was the MRI Global property haha.

Don't think we have to worry about William Jewell becoming a big player, their accreditation is currently on probation.

Re: Layoffs at The Star
