UFO Sightings in Lee's Summit Kansas City

Kansas City News has been following up on the latest UFO sightings in Lee's Summit and Kansas City over the past week. The photo at the left is the only one that has been sent in so far but we should have more UFO photos soon. For 5 consecutive days / nights now, hundreds of people in Lee's Summit and Kansas City have reported UFO sightings. They describe the sightings as UFOs ranging from orange orbs to odd looking formations, and objects with white and green lights all flying around 3000-5000 feet in the air. The sightings seem to be occurring around dusk and early night - from around 5pm to 9pm for the most part. We just had another call come in as we were working on this of a UFO sighting in Raytown where they were able to capture the footage below:

The footage clearly shows a UFO hovering in place above the street, and it is right on par with the other recent sightings in Raytown and Lee's Summit in that the UFOs are flying right over major highways and streets. One account on Wednesday reported a large triangle shaped UFO that flew along highway 50 (Lee's Summit) and then darted away at a speed of approximately 300 miles per hour, then came to a complete and sudden stop over what looked like downtown Lee's Summit, Missouri. The UFO was described as having white, green and blue lights on the bottom of it and the lights seemed to be flashing in a pattern. The same witness also noted that there were at least 2 helicopters in the immediate area at the same time.

Another recent sighting in Lee's Summit occurred tonight at around 7:15pm. The couple was heading down 470 Highway and spotted something that looked like a military formation, but they quickly they realized that these aircraft weren't like any military craft that they had seen before. The UFO sighting was a formation of 6 craft that were flying due North at around 300-400 mph and they did not stop or perform any maneuvers and they flew quickly out of sight. Hundreds of UFO sightings in Kansas City and Lee's Summit are happening this week, I wonder what is going on?

Here at Kansas City News, we will keep watching the sky and keep you posted!

Lisa Irwin Missing Infant Search Continues

The search continues today for missing 10 month old infant Lisa Irwin. The missing toddler was last seen sleeping in her crib at 10:30pm on Monday night at her home at 3600 N Lister Avenue in Kansas City.

Lisa Irwin was reported missing by her father when he returned home from work at 4am Tuesday morning. Police are extremely concerned because in this case both of the parents are accounted for and both reported Lisa missing. Usually in a missing child case such as this, one of the parents is involved, but in this case both parents have been extensively grilled by police and both are cooperating fully. An Amber Alert was issued initially but has since been cancelled. 30 detectives still remain on the case, continuing the search near the child's home. Police fear that Lisa Irwin was abducted via a window in her bedroom and could very well be several miles away by now. The search party is using search dogs at this point in hopes of picking up a trail of Lisa Irwin and her abductor. Police are responding to leads but said that no hard leads have come in on the case. Surely the police are interviewing family members from inside the family circle to the outer circle as in a case like this, the kidnapper is usually someone who knows the family and the missing child. Certainly a 10 month old toddler cannot just get up and walk outside and disappear, at least she wouldn't have gotten that far away - this is almost definitely a kidnapping case and Lisa Irwin has probably been transported by car miles from away from her home.

Police urged anyone with information about the girl's whereabouts to immediately call the TIPS hotline at 816-474-8477.

Lisa Irwin has blue eyes and blond hair, is 30 inches tall and weighs 26 to 30 pounds. She was last seen wearing purple shorts and a purple shirt with white kittens on it, police said. The child has two bottom teeth and a beauty mark on her right outer thigh. Her parents said she also has a cold with a cough.

Suck For Luck Campaign 2012

For those of you who don't know, the Suck for Luck campaign 2012 is a competition in the NFL to be the worst team in the league in the 2011 season (thus "suck") in order to get the number 1 draft position for the 2012 season and potentially draft Stanford University super star quarterback Andrew Luck (thus "luck"). So basically, many fans of teams in the NFL who are struggling are hoping to just lose ALL of their games for the rest of this season in order to get the number 1 draft pick in 2012. The main reason for this is because the fans of the losing NFL teams believe that all of their problems will be solved by getting a new quarterback, mainly Andrew Luck.

There are a few reasons that the Suck for Luck campaign has emerged -
most teams in the NFL who are "sucking" right now are probably blaming their quarterback. The quarterback position has the biggest magnifying glass on it, and fans are quick to put the blame on the quarterback when their team loses. The quarterback's mistakes are the easiest to spot, especially for fans who don't know the ins and outs of the game. If you know a little bit about football, then you understand a few of the other issues that can make the quarterback look bad, like the offensive line, for instance. If the offensive line isn't doing it's job, the quarterback is not being protected, has to scramble around, and basically has a hard time getting into a rhythm. The Suck for Luck campaign has emerged as a result of frustrated fans who are unhappy with their team and truly believe that all of their problems will be solved if they draft Andrew Luck and replace their current quarterback.

Many Kansas City Chiefs fans have signed on to the Suck for Luck campaign and in an interview today 810 sports asked quarterback Matt Cassel if he had heard of the campaign to which he replied that "this is the first I have heard of it" - which may or may not be the truth. As it stands, the Suck for Luck campaign stands as follows:

Minnesota Vikings - Record = 0-4
Miami Dolphins - Record = 0-4
St. Louis Rams - Record = 0-4
Indianapolis Colts - Record = 0-3

Stay tuned for more Suck for Luck news!

Chiefs Vikings 2011 Kansas City News

We hate to say it, but this game might actually be a win for the Kansas City Chiefs vs the Minnesota Vikings, who suck almost as bad as the Chiefs. Now remember, we do not WANT to win due to the ongoing "Suck for Luck" campaign in which we must LOSE every possible game this season in order to acquire super star quarterback Andrew Luck in the 2012 draft for next season. It is imperative that we lose as many games as possible this season, and just focus on next season, there is no way that we are going to be a playoff (or regular season) competitor this year with Jamaal Charles and Eric Barry missing. Let's not kid ourselves and just throw the rest of the games this year.

810 sports radio has been heard arguing this case by saying that "they won't blow the rest of the season because staff members, players and coaches will risk losing their jobs". That is an ignorant statement - here's why: EVERYONE sits down and agrees that losing the remaining games this year is in the Chiefs best interest and no one will lose their job based ONLY upon the team's record for the 2011 season. Now, with that said, if someone on the Chiefs payroll was going to be losing their job after this season ANYWAY, then so be it. But the team would need to sit down and actually agree not to fire anyone based upon this season's record. That, my friends, is the solution.

We are kidding ourselves if we think that Matt Cassel is EVER going to be the right guy for us at quarterback. The only way that would be possible is if we were to build the BEST defense in the NFL, then you might get a team that resemble the Baltimore Ravens 2000 Super Bowl winning team behind mediocre quarterback Trent Dilfer. We would need the best defense in the NFL to propel us to a Super Bowl win behind Matt Cassel.

In other news, Jared Allen, our former defensive lineman who now wears a Minnesota Vikings jersey, has requested that the fans at Arrowhead Stadium please not "boo" him this Sunday.
