And nine for your private appointment I went 366096. Or nine kriegel messed diamonds dot com. Since the. We're here. News go like this guy. An investigation into Jackson County executive frank white's personal financial dealings has been handed over to the Missouri attorney general's office by Jackson County prosecutor. Jean Peters baker. This next chapter in the probe comes as white former Kansas City Royals great. Has put a large portion of his personal collection of baseball memorabilia up for sale. Including his worlds are a World Series trophy in 1980 Golden Globe awards statue. VA he won during his eighteen year career the sale could net tens of thousands of dollars World Series trophy along with. Could bring as much as 151000 according to an auctioneer. For the former all star second baseman who has acknowledged being under financial stress. Since breaking with the royals seven years ago. His troubles have included unpaid taxes for cloture on his wesun at home. Baker has previously acknowledged an ongoing investigation into a transaction involving mortgage. Josh always office did confirm they are reviewing the matter. Three times since he assumed the county government top job in 2016. White has seen his house on the verge of being sold at auction on the courthouse steps. Needed to win when mortgage payments. Widespread assessor is that county executive Mike Sanders. Arrange the media a meeting in independence where the alleged bailout occurred the day before the foreclosure sales to take place. And I know what you're gonna sank. How does that happen how does that happen how does that happen. Because number one professional athletes back in the late seventies and early mid eighties did not. Make the amount of money that will make today though he didn't. And number two I think there's a better. System set up for athletes today who come in too big money right away where they will sit down with you and say OK this sounds like. Money that's gonna last you and your grandchildren your great great grandchildren for the rest of their lives possibly summits worthless and 300000. And again I go back to what did that salary look. Like back when he was playing. And we've seen these guys lose their World Series rings lose Super Bowl rings because they they hawks and to try to recoup money. Dana to pay the bill says he makes a 1121000. Dollars a year in his baseball pinch. Kate yeah at a 145000. Dollars a year from his job with the economy. That's 257000. Dollars a year. That's basically the value of his house. He makes 257. That's just off of what we know. His penchant for Major League Baseball. And his jobless count. Frank White is clear in 257000. Dollars a year that's a pretty good paid. And and somehow you're having financial problems. While Hamas is in the IRS. How could be oh the Irish had. Anna how do you how can you and I figure I think this happens a lot of people but if you look at professional athletes this is not. A rare. Cautionary T we're not expecting my heart to bleed or you know all I just think it's very. Very common especially for the older players do you think or make in new. In the millions and millions of dollars. When in reality back and the salaries do not match what we're seeing out there today it into that they didn't have any education about. Investing or saving our you know this this train is gonna come to an end someday this strain is gonna come to an end what is your plan B. It but it that's not an excuse. Heat it's like Frank White has a four million dollar house admission pills like George Brett. Frank White has a 287000. Dollar house and we some. And makes 257000. Dollars a year that we know. It's of the news here is Kara marks a seven year veteran of the wyandotte county sheriff's office was killed today we'll have more next.

We have fast it's Friday coming right after the 5 o'clock news. And over a week from today worth 54 street grill and ball our. And blue springs in honor and a privilege if you would spend your Friday afternoon. With a us. Wrapping up a conversation about Fred white. Former royals great. The current Jackson coming executive. Who is now under investigation. By the Missouri attorney general's office. Regarding financial dealings. He apparently is putting up a lot of it is royals memorably this is sent 'cause. I can't say that I know frank quite I've met him. Handful of times he's been nothing but good gentleman. Super easy guiding you along with. And it's sad. When you think about it here is one of the royals greats. He's up there almost on the same level almost on the same level as George Brett. He's had his run ins with the royals we don't know about that he wanted to be the manager they never gave me the chance. The two sides parting ways years ago and are just like you go to your wayward ours just go away. Don't come on colonel Moore. And now is putting up a lot of his baseball memorabilia for auction. Including a World Series trophy. His Golden Globe awards. Of which she has eight. And is expected to fetch this auction tens of thousands of dollars. Here's a guy who makes that we know. 257000. Dollars a year which sounds like a lot of. Money it and it is a lot and is. But I'm guessing his debt. His current debt outweighs that income you feel sorry for. I feel sorry that the break with the organization he loved and gave so dearly. To arm ended the way that it did it but he should be a part of that front office. I understand but I don't feel sorry for somebody. Who apparently was used to a certain lifestyle. That lifestyle has stated. And for whatever reason he either didn't save the money made. Now you could argue data and you would be right that a Frank White in 1986. Does not make what a Major League Baseball player makes it too I'm not Angeles and you'd be Dana you would be absolutely right however. George Brett who is a bigger name the frank why but but in this town let's be honest not by march. I mean George Breton Frank White Spain's almost almost no go hand in hand. These were two guys who were with the royals through the heyday. Both have their numbers retired. They're the only players. That the royals have ever had that have their numbers retired. Or out there on the off. And nobody will ever Wear those numbers again not a street race. He had to have made. Millions. And millions of dollars. While he played with the royals George Brett for the love of god in heaven. Was it a four million dollar house in mission as he shut and George Brett was not making the money that major league baseball players are making today you would agree with that I. Is that he has also been a part of that team still airport still. Airport as the most recognizable face of that organization. Before. During instance frank why could easily. And I think he did have like. An endorsement deal with some roofing company here in town like him born. But Frank White is an affable character. Everybody likes Franklin loves you now with all due respect. And I've I'm not breaking any news here you can't say the same to some people about George Brett. Some people love George Brett and some people can't stand George Brett OK fiscal jealousy OK that's fine. Frank White go find me somebody who is not the owner of the Kansas City Royals who has a bad word to say about Frank White you can't do it. That man is is what we call this business bankable. Frank White could go out. And so you'll again but again how many athletes have gone into business or tried this are now I'm gonna do this and lost there shirts what they need to do let's save look better than Scott. Look at Derrick Thomas god rest his son and Mike can they end up auctioning off paper plates out of this course they were selling that when I am aware. I was there. It was sad. And bizarre. End. All I think most people just wanted to go in and dealer looking to lose and I remember thinking all of these people are just sifting through. His rap. Honestly. For pennies on the dollar I covered that as well Tuesday that sigh and a state that was where it was really sat. You and I were both there I was a reporter. Came BC reporter channel five we were both there when they when they did these states have looked at Derrick Thomas Austin had to anyway. Also trying their sheets and their you know if so I guess my point is and I'm not asking you feel sorry for any of these athletes I'm really not. I do have empathy for them. Because of the way things ended with the royals in this particular case but again I think this is. More than norm than not there's going to be more of a story here though because this is a man. Who by all accounts at least looking you know Mike Wallace's son is a pizza delivery boy and his wife his widow and her is homeless him. She's homeless I'm saying is their house to be more to this Frank White story because this is a ma'am. Based on the price of his home. Who did not. Outlive his means he bought. Excuse me. Frank White. According to the story in the star. Bought himself a house in Lee's summit. For 208 it's a place yeah at 287000. Dollars who knows what it was when he bought a but I would imagine it was far less. So here's a man who's clearly living. And I use air quotes here within his means he makes 257000. Dollars a year that we know. And somehow is having financial problems so it's. That it has to be turned over to the Missouri attorney general's office is. What does that say that says somebody's may have said in the fall now I think it says he's in the present. That's I think that's like this someone whose numbers add that's my point that's why I think there has to be more of this story how do you have a house. Worth 287000. Dollars which you clearly atlas for. It gives housing prices have gone through the roof smear I don't know because Rome pork. 130 miles an art house 200. Com he bought a house clearly less than a quarter million dollars but makes more than a quarter million dollars a year. Some fish is going on this money. Maybe you're right. BC invested in something. It shouldn't may be the tried open a restaurant but George Brett. Opened a restaurant on the plaza that failed yeah. And George Brett. Isn't under investigation. George Brett is and selling is four million dollar house it is and there's also a cautionary tale if you're going to go in tune that type of business you have to surround yourself with people. Who know what they're doing when it comes to managing that kind of business and that kind of money. MM and maybe. He never got atlas I would have no idea I would have the first clip mark Donovan who used to be the general manager of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Who married my next door neighbor in Lance. That's what he does now for the NFL. Mark Donovan. You may have seen him on ESP or something he goes around the NFL to teams and teaches players how to invest their money. How to save money because your career is going you're not going to be a Frank White you're up playing for twenty years. You're gonna play for three years you're play for five years. And bank at bank that why you can't that's right. But I don't feel sorry for these people. Or you were handed a golden. And you pooped. I think it's more complicated than you would like. To make it and I have empathy. For anyone in that situation really do. Do. Now you start talking about white collar crime more you know this year is gambling problem that kind of being of which we don't know that I'm saying just in general. In general. In it's easier for me to say. Okay c'mon. Mo money Mo problems. Don't make my finger past acts. Should it. Kirk or Kirk Kirk a 57677.

I would almost guarantee you they already know exactly how this happened that is going to be an extraordinarily.

Where where something was an operating correctly I would almost guarantee you it's a very sad day for the sitting out almost guarantee they know exactly how this went out and. I just I find it. Incredible and in the thirty years and I've thirty publishers have been in this town and twenty some odd years I've been in this business.
