KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - A proposal to expand Kansas City's streetcar south to the University of Missouri-Kansas City won approval by a wide margin in mail-in balloting. Residents inside a new transportation development district approved special sales and property taxes fund a $227 million project. Voters approved a new 1-cent sales tax for the next 30 years. Property owners generally within one-third of a mile from the streetcar route will face an additional 25-year property tax assessment.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - Kansas City police are releasing more details about two officer-involved shootings last week that left three people dead. Officers fatally shot a woman who was involved in a standoff Thursday after she was seen walking with a sword in a northern Kansas City neighborhood. About an hour later, police shot and killed two men who were fighting in downtown Kansas City.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - Four years after Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill co-sponsored legislation targeting tax havens such as the Cayman Islands, her husband began investing in a hedge fund tied to the Caribbean nation _ an investment that has paid off handsomely.
