Attorney and former chair of the Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission Steve Miller is just one of the candidates running for mayor of Kansas City, Missouri.

Segment 1: Lawyer and lifelong Kansas Citian realized his past role as chairman of Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission "functions much like the mayor of a city." 

In the first of our series of interviews with Kansas City, Missouri, hopefuls to become mayor, Steve Miller laid out his views on crime, affordable housing, pre-K education and more.

Segment 2, beginning at 22:06: Analysis of how area teams will do in the New Year.

A panel of veteran sports reporters looked at Kansas City's professional teams and assessed their chances for 2019. They didn't ignore college hoops either, as men's and women's basketball schedules are in full swing at KU, Mizzou and K-State.
