A political action committee focused on supporting police wants to recall Kansas City Mayor Quinton Lucas and several city council members. And following a year-long hiatus, the Plaza Art Fair makes a comeback.

A political action committee is seeking to recall Kansas City Mayor Quinton Lucas and several city council members. As the Kansas City Beacon's Emily Wolf reports, the PAC is almost solely focused on supporting the police.

Also, after being canceled in 2020 due to COVID-19 concerns, the Plaza Art Fair returns. The 90th annual event is a celebration that covers nine blocks of the historic shopping center. KCUR’s Julie Denesha followed three local artists who have spent months working in their studios to prepare.
