, Indiana Bunker Hill , Indiana, near Kokomo (Kokomo, Indiana), the son of a Union Army soldier. He was a tiny and frail child, and after his mother died when he was five, his father sent him to live with a nearby family. He was still a young boy when he struck out on his own, taking jobs in the nearby gas and oil fields. For a time he ended up working at a horse racing stable in St. Louis (St. Louis, Missouri), but later in Kansas City (Kansas City, Missouri) was employed by a thoroughbred horse trainer who encouraged him to take advantage of his diminutive stature and become a jockey. Things got so bad for The Baseball Network that even local broadcasters objected to its operations. KSMO-TV in Kansas City (Kansas City, Missouri), the primary over-the-air station for the Kansas City Royals, went as far as to sue the Royals for breach of contract resulting from their broadcasts being "overexposed" and violating its territorial exclusivity. There are currently 17 Cappies programs in the U.S. and Canada, ranging in size from five to fifty-five participating high schools. Within each program, every participating high school selects three to nine students for a critic team. After receiving intensive training in theater criticism and review writing, they attend plays and musicals at other high schools in their area. They write reviews (of roughly 400 words) on deadline. Volunteer teacher-mentors lead discussions and select the critic-written reviews that are later published by area newspapers, with student bylines. The programs operate in and around Baltimore, Maryland ''(see "the Cappies in Baltimore, Maryland")''; Cincinnati, Ohio; Dallas, Texas; El Paso, Texas; Ft. Lauderdale – Palm Beach, Florida; Houston, Texas; Kansas City, Missouri; Melbourne, Florida; Northern New Jersey; Orange County, California; Orlando, Florida; Philadelphia, PA; St. Louis, Missouri; Salt Lake City, Utah; Springfield, Missouri; Washington, DC; Edmonton, Canada; and Ottawa, Canada. To start a Cappies program, a group of interested persons must organize a local Steering Committee and apply for a charter. There is no fee for the first year, but costs of Cappies for schools are rising. According to Cynthia Bates, an Ottawa school teacher, "there was previously a capital reserve fund that helped to offset the immense costs associated with Cappies. This fund has been eliminated - now each school is asked to come up with $1,400 to register." Unfortunately Cappies may become a more expensive, exclusive program, which goes against the founders vision. The Cappies is a charitable organization, and the adults who run the program are volunteers.

The corridor was listed as the number-one high-priority corridor by transportation officials in the Intermodal Surface Transportation Efficiency Act. Underground popularity: mid 1990s In the mid-1990s the American punk (punk rock) and indie rock movements, which had been largely underground since the early 1980s, became part of mainstream culture. After Nirvana (Nirvana (band))'s success, major record labels capitalized on the popularity of alternative rock and other underground music by signing numerous independent bands and spending large amounts of capital promoting them. Greenwald, p. 33. In 1994, the same year that Jawbreaker's ''24 Hour Revenge Therapy'' and Sunny Day Real Estate's ''Diary'' were released, pop punk acts Green Day and The Offspring had mutiplatinum (Oro album) successes with their respective albums ''Dookie'' and ''Smash (Smash (The Offspring album))''. In the wake of the underground going mainstream, over the next several years emo as a genre retreated, reformed, and morphed into a national subculture, then eventually something more. Drawing inspiration from bands like Jawbreaker, Drive Like Jehu, and Fugazi, the new sound of emo was a mixture of hardcore (hardcore punk)'s passion and indie rock's intelligence, bearing the anthemic power of punk rock and its do-it-yourself (Do it yourself) work ethic but with smoother songs, sloppier melodies, and yearning vocals. Greenwald, pp. 34–35. Many of the new emo bands originated from the Midwestern (Midwestern United States) and Central United States, such as Braid (Braid (band)) from Champaign (Champaign, Illinois)-Urbana, Illinois, Christie Front Drive from Denver, Colorado, Mineral (Mineral (band)) from Austin, Texas, Jimmy Eat World from Mesa, Arizona, The Get Up Kids from Kansas City, Missouri, and The Promise Ring from Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Greenwald, p. 34. According to Andy Greenwald, "This was the period when emo earned many, if not all, of the stereotypes that have lasted to this day: boy-driven, glasses-wearing, overly sensitive, overly brainy, chiming-guitar-driven college music." The Hall of Fame was founded as the Science Fiction and Fantasy Hall of Fame in 1996 by the Kansas City Science Fiction and Fantasy Society (Kansas City, Missouri) and the Center for the Study of Science Fiction at the University of Kansas. The Chairmen were Keith Stokes (1996–2001) and Robin Wayne Bailey (2002–present). Only authors were eligible for recognition and four were inducted annually. *Robert (Bobby) Cosgrove Greenlease Jr. (Bobby Greenlease) (1953). The six-year-old boy was kidnapped and immediately murdered 28 September 1953 in Kansas City, Missouri by Bonnie Heady and Carl A. Hall. They then demanded and were paid a $600,000 ransom by the boy's father, a wealthy automobile dealer.

Ramp metering was first implemented in 1963 on the Eisenhower Expressway (Interstate 290 (Interstate 290 (Illinois))) in Chicago by Adolf D. May, now a UC Berkeley professor Adolf D.

It is the central city of the Kansas City metropolitan area, a region spanning the Kansas–Missouri border.

Large suburbs include Independence (Independence, Missouri) and Lee's Summit (Lee's Summit, Missouri) in Missouri and Overland Park (Overland Park, Kansas), Olathe (Olathe, Kansas) and Kansas City (Kansas City, Kansas) in Kansas.
