Who wouldn't think they could rob the Bellagio and get away with it? Not saying he's guilty, but if a guy from Overland Park really did think he could pull that off and get away with it, his cajones are are bigger than his brain. Vegas police say Scott Carmitchel of Overland Park robbed the Bellagio of $43, 500 and then paid for prostitutes with cash still in Bellagio wrappers. Unlike most people who are arrested, he tried to avoid a mug shot. Some officers assisted him with that.
A trio of would-be gas station robbers in Houston, Texas, got the surprise of their lives after an attempt to jump an employee holding a bag of cash ended at the feet and fists of his co-worker -- who happened to be a mixed martial arts champ in his native Sri Lanka.
I'm trying to remember all the drive in movie places that used to be in town. Here's the ones I can remember: The Westport was on West St. just South of Star Lumber. It was pretty easy to sneak in to that one on foot. The Meadowlark Twin was on E. Harry just East of where the Wichita Mall building sits. It had two screens. It's hard to imagine a Drive In being in the middle of town! The 81 was, of course on 81 Highway (N. Broadway) the Terrace Drive In was on the North side of town and most of my memories revolve around the K-42 Drive In. The summer of '79 we spent a lot of time there. We would go out early, before dark, and throw the frisbee around. We'd set up our lawn chairs and have a little base camp. Loved it! The thing I remember most from my childhood days at the Drive In was the intermission films. "The Goodies Machine", "Candy Mountain", "Mouth Watering Chilly Dilly's", "3 Minutes til Showtime."

Cleanthony Early fits the Knicks like a glove. He is a New Yorker and clearly feeling at home. It has taken him no time to start posterizing. Summer league must be thrilling for him. So happy for Cle and for Toure Murray. Hope they have a stellar season.
Hard to really believe we have said goodbye to Boeing...but impossible to deny while you are getting a bargain at the big Boeing Auction on Tuesday July 22nd at 10am. Use entrance #6 and you can get bidding on everything from Giant industrial fans to Cafeteria benches and tables. For some people, these will be souvenirs of a great age gone by...for others just another hydraulic tool.
