Max Armstrong's Daily Updates

MIDDAY Midwest Digest, April 9, 2021

Steve Alexander fills in for Max Armstrong and talks a Kansas lawmaker who was arrested, a reward offered for poachers in North Dakota and a one-hole golf course in Kansas City.

A lawsuit involving powerful Kansas lawmaker drags on. Kansas Senate Majority Leader Gene Suellentrop was arrested last month for alleged speeding and driving on the wrong side of a divided highway. His blood alcohol limit was more than twice the legal limit. He alledged called the officer "doughnut boy" during the arrest.

Here's an example of trickle-down economics, but not in a good way. An aerospace company is filing for bankruptcy because of the business it lost during COVID-19.

A reward for the poaches who killed two bull elk out of season in North Dakota is growing. No meat was taken from either animal, though one of the heads was taken.

This is Masters weekend and I've got a golf story for you. In Kansas City, there's a one-hole golf course. It's a replica of the Golden Bell. It was built by the CEO of a high-tech company.

Bat-cat is free. The cat was on a branch in Indiana. It is being treated for dehydration.
