Editor: Does your community want a Planned Parenthood? Since Margaret Sanger opened the first clinic for contraception methods for women in New York years ago, women have had a safe place to go to have family planning options. Both men and women support Zero Population Growth, the concept and organization that promoted it, in an

Gov. Greitens fights for veterans

As the Chairman of the Missouri Association of Veterans Organizations, I’m grateful for new leadership in Missouri that fights for our veterans. These men and women deserve dignity, respect and quality care. Unfortunately, too often, government fails them. Families came forward with worries about conditions in the St. Louis Veterans home. The bureaucracy said everything

Bud likes Larry

Editor: I feel very fortunate to have a newspaper that is not controlled by a board of directors who will set a policy to only publish viewpoints that agree with their own. Kenny Long will publish a viewpoint that seems to go against something he believes in. Larry Dablemont has long been a thorn in

Squandering NFL Charities

Editor: In order to stop the flag protesting at football games with the hopes of regaining attendance at the games, Roger Goodell and the NFL has decided to pay the protesters some $90 million for their pet projects. To me, this is like giving candy to a kid to stop him from whining and acting

Message: I have replaced my water filter at the expense of around $1,700, due to our sulfer smelling water in El Dorado Springs. There’s a lot of people complaining about the water on Facebook.

The people that you are remembering cared in many ways the same about their brothers and sisters and their patriotism. I feel it is important for young men to be recognized and honored for their outstanding achievements. You

Free-For-All

Editor: For the last few weeks, it seems that the news has been dominated by sexual harassment and abuse charges. No one seems to be exempt from it: actors, producers, presidents, congressmen, teachers, etc. Both parties are using these charges for political gain and/or to hurt the opposing parties. I wonder (from both sides of

No on gun control

Editor: I am as liberal as you can get on a lot of issues, but gun control is not one of them. Gun control will not work. Prohibition did not work, it made the problem worse. Criminals got booze, criminals and terrorists will get guns. Many weapons are used to kill. Should we ban kitchen
