In light of what will likely be his final televised address as president, we remember Barack Obama's greatest speeches and dissect the rhetoric behind them. Then, a conversation about whether the historic buildings and eclectic personality of Westport can survive in the modern economy. Finally, the latest Statehouse Blend Missouri features Missouri House Speaker Todd Richardson (R-Poplar Bluff).

Greg Allen and Mary Jo Draper will discuss preserving Westport's identity at the Kansas City Public Library's Plaza Branch at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, January 10th. For more information and to RSVP, visit
