The Reform Project KC | Autumnal Wine & Beer

Segment 1, beginning at 4:25: The city's latest attempt to reduce violent crime rests on four pillars.

Kansas City, Missouri, will embrace prevention, intervention, law enforcement and community, and administrative reform as it moves ahead with The Reform Project KC. The joint effort is being touted as "a community-based commitment to public safety."

Segment 2, beginning at 34:22: As summer changes to fall, so can our choices in wine and beer.

You can feel it in those cool evening breezes — autumn is here. With it, perhaps, should be new tastes to fill our bottles and stemware as we finish raking the leaves or enjoy a sit around the fire.

The next town hall meeting of The Reform Project KC is at 5:30 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 12 at the Southeast Community Center, 4201 E. 63rd St., Kansas City, Missouri 64130. For more information, visit ReformProjectKC.org.
