WASHINGTON -- A brief and supposedly impossible power failure at an air traffic control center near Kansas City tore the heart out of the Federal Aviation Administration's national network for several hours yesterday morning, forcing hundreds of planes to be diverted or delayed and inconveniencing tens of thousands of passengers.College students on their way home for Christmas, business executives making late-week flights, and families getting an early start on holiday travel sat in airports into the evening as delays cascaded around the country.

Outlaws, sunken riverboats, abandoned woolen mills and reconstructed frontier outposts are all part of Kansas City's glorified 19th-century history. During that time, the Louisiana Purchase, which ignited America's mad passion for westward expansion, and the Civil War, which pitted brother against brother in a divided state, left an indelible imprint on this landscape. In and around Kansas City, local pride in a past both celebrated and checkered lets us experience it in a way no textbook ever could.

What else can go wrong? The Kansas City Royals already were at the bottom of the American League Central when they lost veteran shortstop Jay Bell and designated hitter Chili Davis to free agency. Now, it looks like they'll have to do without pitching ace Kevin Appier for most or all of the 1998 season.In other words, the Royals are the perfect first opponent for a team that is trying to extend last year's season-long stay at the top of the AL East.The Orioles always seem to draw the Royals in the first week of the season.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Cathy, a 34-year-old saleswoman in Kansas City, had several platinum cards as proof of her good credit. Then she started gambling at area riverboats. She'd bet a few hundred dollars in cash. When she lost that, she'd get cash advances on her credit cards at the casinos' customer service counters. "It made me sick, but the more sick it made me, the more I would go back," she said. "They weren't going to beat me -- I was going to beat them. But they won." She gambled away an estimated $10,000 to $20,000 between 1996 and 1998.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Just one more. The Blast beat the Kansas City Comets, 20-18, at Kemper Arena last night, reducing its magic number to make the Major Indoor Soccer League playoffs to one. A Blast win or a Cleveland loss will ensure the fourth-place Blast a spot in the postseason. Putting this one in the win column at first looked like it might be easy. But it was anything but simple, with the Comets - who lost for only the second time at home this season - rallying from large deficits to take a late lead.
