Kansas City, MO – Visit Benton Boulevard on the East Side, where some residents are concerned about city services and safety. Plus, a local hospital retools its procedures to better treat Muslim women, and members of other religious groups. An appeals court hears arguments on whether out-of-state students at Kansas universities can sue the state for allowing some immigrant residents to pay in-state tuition. And, an interview with Silvio Horta, the creator of the new ABC series Ugly Betty, which was based on a Colombian soap opera.

KCUR serves the Kansas City region with breaking news and powerful storytelling.
