TLC #126 June 26, 2010
Dear Hearts & Gentle
I write to ask your
indulgence. My ISP decided I was Spamming when I sent off TLCs. Because
they went from my Outbox to my Sent box, without notification except that they
had been scanned for viruses, I did not realize that so many of you were

I am going to re-send
#124 and #125, which nearly everyone did not receive.
If you have missed any
other issues, let me know and I'll send them to you individually. This may also
be a good time to suggest that if you would like to be removed from the mailing
list, I'll be happy to do that...if I can see through my tears.

Commission's ideas for the renovated auditorium is to have a rotating exhibit of
these past events and stories...to bring these memories to life for our
young people and visitors.
Thought has been given to
soliciting funds from alumni and former residents....as an endowment for
marketing, programs, children's theatre, etc. Once we have the
not-for-profit status in place, we will revisit these possibilities in more
The TLC readers
also may be interested to know that the Missouri Alliance for Historic
Preservation (also called Missouri Preservation) on May 18 designated the Zion
AME Church as one of the state's Most Endangered Historic Buildings. We
will be working with the AME Conference trustees in Kansas City to stabilize
this building at 16th and Lafayette Streets and find viable, alternative uses
for it. Information about the building's nomination can be found on
Any memories or history your readers may have concerning this building would be
Ending on a "down"
note, word reaches us that Lee Dresser has been diagnosed with Acute
Myelogenous Leukemia. Due to Lee's recovery period, The Krazy Kats have
cancelled all performances for the months of May, June, July and
