Robert D. Caplinger, Author of "A Wild Irish Rose" The story of a young quixotic attorney who cleaned up the most corrupt county in Kansas (Atchison County in 1922) Mr. Caplinger shared the story of how he found and pieced together this dark chapter of Atchison County history. An Attorney himself, Caplinger came across the beginnings of the story while searching for details of the building of the first concrete road in Kansas. What he found was a story of corruption, political entrenchment and how one man led the battle to set things right in Atchison County.

Western JoCo Rotary Helps out Johnson County Christmas Bureau

Western Johnson County Club members were treated to a social gathering with a twist. A big shout out to Lori Maher, one of the original members of our club who hosted a "Between the Sheets" party on November 17th. This event had members and friends bring a set of sheets as a donation for the Johnson County Christmas Bureau. All together there were 42 sets of sheets in all different sizes collected, this allowed the Johnson County Christmas Bureau to provide both kids and parents sweet dreams and a comfortable sleep on brand new sheets. This event was also a great way to get to know fellow members of the club on a more social level.

 
 
 
 
On December 9th, club members and even some spouses stepped up again to help the Christmas Bureau with the Annual Christmas Shop. From pushing shopping carts to helping recipients make decisions on gifts, the club was represented well with 12 members and a couple of spouses participating in two different shifts.

Kevin Kietzman from Sports Radio 810 WHB to speak on Sep. 9th at 730am
StoryThumbnail
Rotary Club meeting on Tuesday, Sept. 9th has been changed to 730am. We meet at the Falcon Valley clubhouse in Lenexa. A complementary continental breakfast will be served.

Our guest speaker will be well known sports talk radio personality Kevin Kietzman. Kevin is the host of "Between the Lines" on Sports Radio 810 WHB.

Simply put, “Between the Lines” is the show that reshaped sports radio in Kansas City. Mired in a sports radio abyss in the late 90s, listeners soaked up BTL like a dry sponge. Host Kevin Kietzman has never been afraid to ask the tough question to any guest, or voice his opinion to any listener. Between The Lines is just that - candid, honest and open.

Not only does Kevin, along with co-host Danny Clinkscale and producer Todd Leabo, break the latest in sports news, they typically talk to the newsmaker directly. And when it comes to interviewing, Kevin’s in-depth and insightful questions leave no stone unturned, giving listeners the whole picture. When you want to know the who, when, where and why of the local sports scene, keep it “Between the Lines”. From 2 to 6 pm weekdays, on Sports Radio 810 WHB.

About

As a writer, national blogger and radio show co-host, I love to Dish about what's happening now, in Kansas City and all over the country!
Biography
Overland Park, Kan.-based freelance writer and editor Kimberly Winter Stern writes about healthcare, travel, food, lifestyle and design. An adventurer and feline fanatic, she revels in the fast-paced lifestyle of someone in search of words to be written and stories to be told. Though the bipolar atmospheric changes in Kansas are sometimes challenging, Stern admits there is no place like the Heartland as a home base for her love of travel and food. 

Also known as the gregarious and cuisine-informed Kim Dishes to listeners tuning in weekly for her on-the-road segments on “LIVE! From Jasper’s Kitchen,” a popular long-running food show in Kansas City for which she is co-host with KC celebrity Chef Jasper Mirabile, Stern constantly scours the country for culinary and destination jewels, never leaving home without her appetite or her vivid imagination. Prolific in eating, writing and discovering, this foodie satisfies an innate desire to sample the world’s gastronomic rainbow by meeting food artisan trendsetters, gaining insight into the culinary points-of-view of everyone from cheese makers and chocolatiers to brew masters and baristas who set their city’s locavore pace to the farmers and growers who are passionate producers. 

Stern is a sought-after writer with work appearing in diverse national, regional and local magazines including Better Homes and Gardens, 913/KC Star, KANSAS! Magazine, KANSAS Outdoors, KC Magazine, national travel guides, KC Homes & Gardens, Generation Boom, Shawnee Magazine, KC Home Design, Unity, KC Business and Midwest CEO. She is the former managing editor of 435 South magazine where she helped Johnson County's definitive lifestyle publication earn the coveted title of "Best Magazine in Kansas City" in 2011. Stern is a national writer for Dean & DeLuca’s Gourmet Food Blog where she cooks, styles, shoots and writes about food … and loves to lick the bowl clean. The face behind the name of Kim Dishes, a foodie’s dream blog, Stern wrote a popular weekly food column called Dining Bytes for KC Magazine.
