Kansas City, MO – The handling of some types of criminal cases in Kansas City is prompting one of the city's police commissioner to meet with the Jackson County prosecutor. The issue is the volume of violent assault crimes that wind up in municipal court.

Dozens of new laws took effect in Missouri this weekend. One in particular creates new ethics rules: it restricts committee-to-committee money transfers and allows the Ethics Commission to launch its own investigations.

    Missouri Doctors Treat Two for One

    Kansas City, MO – A new Missouri law taking effect this weekend gives doctors another option for treating sexually transmitted diseases.

    Normally, when a person has an STD like gonorrhea or chlamydia, he or she has to see a doctor for a health exam in order to get medication. But under a new Missouri law, a doctor can now give a patient who has an STD medication for that person's partner as well.

    It's called expedited partner therapy, or EPT.

    Farewell: A Review

    KCUR Arts Reporter Steve Walker share's his impressions of current movies.

    Farewell

    RATED PG13

    IN FRENCH & RUSSIAN WITH ENGLISH SUBTITLES

    This political thriller - in Russian, French and English - will remind many of Steven Spielberg's "Munich" in the way it covers a global event through the lives of just a handful of characters.

    Here, the situation in question is the fall of the Soviet Union and how two less-than-perfect but more-than-human spies bring it down (before others break it up).

    Get Low: A Review

    KCUR Arts Reporter Steve Walker share's his impressions of current movies.

    Get Low
    Rated PG-13

    The great Robert Duvall is perfection as Felix Bush, a curmudgeonly hermit living outside a small town in the 1930s who devises a plan to be present - and alive - at his own funeral.

    Colorful support is provided by Bill Murray as the funeral director, Lucas Black as his prot?g?e, and Sissy Spacek as Bush's old flame.

    The movie looks great and is aptly evocative of a more genteel time and, for an hour, it works very well.
