Since Fox 4 Kansas City’s Stephanie Hockridge appears to have now stolen two stories from me without even a hint of attribution (this one from shawneemissionpost.com, and another from the now defunct KCFreePress.com about Memorial Day 2010), I figured her station wouldn’t mind if I stole their tagline for…
This awesome post about KCP&L lightpoles!
Resident Jim O. emailed us a couple of weeks back with photos of a light pole on 74th Street that had its wiring exposed. (See photo above).
We got in touch with KCP&L to find out what caused the issue. They sent a crew to investigate, fixed the pole, and determined it was probably just a case of a worn fastener, and not vandalism.
So there you go. shawneemissionpost.com: Working for you! (Thanks Fox 4 for lending us the branding!)
UPDATED 3-27: Ms. Hockridge has written to let us know her station received an email tip from Ms. Nelson regarding the incident. So. Just one stolen story, perhaps.
