I really enjoyed reading Chuck Woodling's article about his trips to all 50 state capitals and it got me to wondering. Is Woodling a Kansas native? Where did he spend his boyhood years?
Chuck Woodling, who was the Journal-World's sports editor from 1968-2005, grew up in Kansas City, Mo. As a youth, he attended Gladstone, Center and J.C. Nichols elementary schools. He is a graduate of now-defunct K.C. Southwest High.
