Taking it to the Drive In baby

The South West Boulevard Drive IN here in Kansas City is one of my go to favorite spots to slip back in time and soak up nostalgia.  The play ground just as it was when I was a kid, car window mounted speakers, the feeling that everyone is outside together enjoying the stars and the movie.  Pallets made in backs of cars for kids to snuggle up outside... how can you beat it.  One of my favorite things about summer.   Thank God for Wes and his family who own the drive in for keeping it real all these years. 

Authenticity Over Everything

Quentin Lucas | representative of the 3rd district KC | community activist There are easier ways to make a living than representing the 3rd District, the east central node of Kansas City that's best known for its vacant properties and its lack of opportunity.  Having had a well-paying job with a top law firm in Kansas City, Lucas knows this firsthand.  His pursuit of public office represents a financial sacrifice.  Lucas says he means to serve his community.   (written by Steve Vockrodt)
