Robert Felix, a Kansas City native who grew up in Kansas City, Kansas, and now lives in Shawnee, has always known about the old cable car tunnel that runs below Eighth Street from downtown to the West Bottoms. As the new Kansas City Streetcar system gains popularity he wondered: Could the Eighth Street Tunnel/streetcar line be restored and used to link the two parts of the city?
Reader Wayne Moots recently asked us how people used to travel up and down the rocky bluffs that separate downtown from the West Bottoms. Moots works at the revitalized Golden Ox restaurant, and has had plenty of time to ponder this KC Q during his commute.
It’s summer in Kansas City, so it’s time for “What’s Your KCQ?” to take a swing at a baseball question. Ashley Tebbe recently submitted her question to The Kansas City Star and the Kansas City Public Library about some local baseball history: "What is the history of Negro Leagues baseball trading cards?"
