Letter to the Editor - Home Schools

Dear Editor, 

Our government or society generally keeps giving us more and more reasons why we might want to home school our children, but I’m not sure which is worse - for my children to grow up and be more like the public schools or society generally, or for my children to grow up and be more like me.  

Moses was brought up in the household of Pharoah, but he led the people of Israel out from the bondage of Pharoah.

Letter to the Editor - Responding to the execution description

Dear Editor, 

Rep. Paul Fitzwater’s description of the execution he witnessed was informative and exceptionally detailed: he noticed 45 seconds of toe twitching, observable despite the inmate’s body being covered with a sheet and despite the extensive amounts of tranquilizers that had been pumped into him prior to the administration of lethal drugs.

Letter to the Editor - How to spell ‘danger’

Dear Editor, 

Our Republican politicians in Jefferson City are regularly petted and fed and they wag their tails and do tricks. Their favorite tricks are, “Roll over, Now Beg, Lie Down, Stay and now you may Speak.” 

The special interest groups are keeping their pets obedient and performing accordingly to continue to distort issues that they must keep alive in order to make their jobs seem necessary.

Looking forward to riding Texas Eagle

by State Rep. Paul Fitzwater

 

I was contacted this week by Carol Kelsheimer  who has spear-headed the efforts for the Amtrak Stop in Arcadia that will be coming real soon.  We had the ground-breaking ceremony a couple of weeks ago and Carol said the only holdup is the letter of Right of Entry.

Capitol Press Corps: From lions to mosquitos

Phill Brooks

It’s not been a happy season for Missouri’s statehouse press corps.
Once respected as lions, we’re now treated by the Senate like bothersome mosquitoes that easily can be swatted away.
It started last fall when the Senate evicted most of the press corps from their traditional offices on the Capitol’s first floor to smaller offices in what amounts to an attic of the building.
Because it’s not accessible to the physically disabled, reporters using wheelchairs need not apply to be a Missouri statehouse reporter.
Then just before the 2016 legislative session began, the Senate Republican’s spokesperson wrote us that many senators requested “some time upon adjournment before giving interviews” and that we should go through Senate staff for interviews rather than directly approaching the lawmakers on the Senate floor after the week’s adjournment.

Letter to the Editor - Another in a series of plunders

Dear Editor,
I have been reading about all of this economic development, TIF financing, consolidation stuff and I have a few thoughts that I would like to share.  Thank you in advance for allowing me to do so.
