Greetings, My Fellow Missourians
On Monday, I was honored to present a Resolution to Ken and Sue Molzahn for their outstanding display of Revolutionary War-Era flags. I want to extend my thanks to them for hosting a lovely ceremony on their property in Collins. We were joined by many including representatives from many Chapters of the Sons of the American Revolutions and Daughters of the American Revolution. The DAR Chapters represented were from Joplin, Kansas City, Nixa, Nevada and Springfield. The SAR had representatives from the Patriots Chapter and the Harry S. Truman Chapter from Independence.
In presenting the Resolution, I challenged everyone in attendance to promote, preserve and protect our nation’s history. In the future, I want to see the passage of a state law to protect objects of remembrance. I may be calling on these patriots to help support legislation or particular efforts to pass a Right for Remembrance Act.
The Molzahn’s have created an impressive display with over 135 flags and deserve the honor bestowed upon them. The Sons of the American Revolution presented the following proclamation to the Molzahn’s:
“Ken and Sue it is an honor for the Sons of the American Revolution to recognize you for your duties as patriotic American citizens. Your display of the American Flag at your home announces to your neighborhood, your city and all that pass by that you are a proud and patriotic American. It also says that you love this great country and you revere those that have stood on the battle fields of the world to protect our great nation and the freedoms we enjoy. There is an old saying “We need more like you” and indeed “We do need more like Ken and Sue”. We and millions of other Americans Thank You for flying the colors of your nation and by doing so strengthen our resolve to preserve those freedoms forever. I as an officer of the Sons of the American Revolution take great pleasure in presenting you this certicicate in recognition of your faithful display of “The Flag of the United States of America”.

Monday evening, I attended the St. Clair Farm Bureau meeting in Osceola. Also this past week, I have attended public meetings on the controversial SB 391. In these meetings I try to explain the reason why the Missouri Legislature put an amendment on State Statute 192.300. The amendment prevents any orders, ordinances, rules, or regulations promulgated by county commissions and county health center boards shall not impose standards or requirements on an agricultural operation and its appurtenances that are inconsistent with or more stringent than any provisions of law, rules, or regulations relating to the Department of Health and Senior Services, environmental control, the Department of Natural Resources, air conservation, and water pollution.
