  • One of the largest trucking company in the country, Overland-Park based YRC Worldwide, lost more than 300 million dollars in the second quarter, and maybe headed for bankruptcy.

  • The Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art has a new curator.

  • Kansas City bicycle racing fans will be able to see even more of the Tour of Missouri this year. Organizers have announced the route for the seven-day tour will conclude in Kansas City with a seven-lap circuit race.
