The Man With Too Many Wildflowers
A Kansas City man's plea for native flower justice has united gardeners around the world. Plus, the latest news from Kevin Strickland's innocence case.
Missouri Gov. Mike Parson's nominee for the Kansas City Board of Police Commissioners falsely claimed she was on the board of two charities and that she had “completed a high-level PhD program” at a university. Plus, the latest on Kevin Strickland's legal battle as he awaits a hearing to determine his innocence.
Also, a garden filled with more than 10 species of native flowers for pollinators is growing freely in front of a Kansas City home. But Dennis Moriarty, the man who planted them, is being told his flowers violate city codes. Moriarty explains to Up To Date host Steve Kraske why changing the code would be a win for the environment.
