DUI Checkpoints Kansas City February 24th, 25th, 26th

Be careful out there this weekend! Here at Kansas City News we would like to bring you up to speed on the DUI checkpoints in Kansas City for February 24th, 25th and 26th. Remember, there is a new casino that just opened by the Kansas Speedway called Hollywood Casino and they will be swarming all over that place so be careful driving anywhere out and around The Legends Shopping Center.

Checkpoints will also be lurking in the usual places including:

Anywhere along Southwest Trafficway or Southwest Boulevard - avoid those streets if possible, especially on Southwest Trafficway near the Penn Valley Community College (around 31st Street) and also near the Sunfresh in Westport.

Avoid Ward Parkway all together if possible if you are trying to rocket out of the Plaza area from a night of embibing. Ward Parkway will have DUI checkpoints set up in a number of different areas including the most popular areas which are on the 77th block and the 79th street intersection where Ward Parkway splits into Kansas.

Wornall Road is always a popular spot for DUI checkpoints and they usually set those up around the Waldo area, near 75th Street or 77th Street. Wornall also has surprise checkpoints around 93rd Street on that blind corner where if you are driving south towards the intersection of 95th and Wornall, BANG! - there they are and you won't see a thing. Sometimes the Kansas City Police have a motorcycle posted up on the side street of 93rd looking to see if anyone tries to turn around and avoid the trap.

The best idea, of course is to avoid drunk driving and take a cab or find a sober friend to drive, this way you don't have to worry about DUI checkpoints in Kansas City at all! Be careful out there this weekend (February 24th, 25th and 26th) and drive safe!

Hollywood Casino Kansas City Opens Friday Smoking Allowed

$386 Million dollars later, the Hollywood Casino in Kansas City, Kansas near the Kansas Speedway will open it's doors on Friday, February 3rd, as planned. Construction for the new casino was finished ahead of schedule due to the mild weather that we have experienced in the Kansas City area this "winter". Many inquiries are flying in to us at Kansas City News about smoking at Hollywood Casino, and the answer is HELL YES you can smoke at the casino. The law is strict but they are not stupid, they know that smoking cigarettes and gambling go hand in hand and that they also know that the Hollywood Casino is poised to raise $203 million dollars during it's first year of operation. 22% of the revenues from the casino will go to the state of Kansas, while 5% will go to the city of Kansas City, Kansas, where it will be dumped into welfare like worthless programs and gambling help centers and programs. Obama's welfare based game plan will prevail here, and the 5% that will go to Kansas City, Kansas will help out the welfare mama's sitting around the house with 4 or 5 illegitimate children drawing welfare checks. Gotta love the dumb ass democrats.

Gambling is a fast growing fixture here in the Kansas City area. I can remember when Sam's Town first opened back in 1995. It was a BIG DEAL for Kansas City, and if any of you remember, back in those days, the casinos actually had to be riverboats. The casinos were giant boats that would board passengers every 2 hours and then cruise up and down the Missouri River. Crazy huh? You would have to wait in line on the docks to board the riverboats when they returned to pick up new passengers. Sam's Town is now owned and operated by Cerner and is used as a special events facility. After this was deemed ridiculous, and probably dangerous, the law changed to state that the new casinos being built (Ameristar, Harrah's, and Isle of Capri - or as we call it "Pile of Debri") would only have to be sitting on some sort of water. This was even more ridiculous as they simply built the buildings over about 1 foot of water under the gambling floor. Now, Kansas City has completely abandoned any rules when it comes to casinos including smoking in a public place, they just ignore that rule and let everyone smoke away.

The new Hollywood Casino in Kansas City has been described by those who got a sneak peek today at a mini grand opening by invitation only with proceeds benefitting the Sunflower House as being much bigger and better than any of the other casinos in the area. Most said that it more closely resembled the large and grand Las Vegas casinos rather than the ghetto Kansas City casinos loaded with penny machines and low life drifters. If you plan to visit the new Hollywood Casino, remember the golden rule of gambling, "only bring what you plan to lose".

Hollywood Casino Kansas City

Kansas City will be adding yet another casino in early 2012 when the Hollywood Casino opens up at the Kansas Speedway. Penn National Gaming, Inc. has been taking over and opening new casinos all across the United States, mostly building casinos in poor ghetto neighborhoods (i.e. Kansas City, Kansas) and Hollywood Casino will be yet another link in Penn National Gaming's chain. The Hollywood Casino 400 race is an advertising ploy to introduce the new casino's presence in Kansas City.
