I am on the hunt for a new hiking trail in the area. Running or jogging is not my thing, but hiking or going on a good walk is what I like to do. I have little endurance for running long or short distances.

In talking to newspaper editors, publishers and owners from around the U.S., and several foreign countries, one of their main concerns in their areas is the wide use of drugs, and the crimes that result.
There are few organizations that have accomplished in a short time what Franklin County Honor Flight, Inc., has done. It honors military veterans by taking them free of charge to Washington, D.C., to see the monuments erected that recognize the service they gave to this country.
Not that another argument was needed to reduce the number of members of the Missouri House of Representatives, but an analysis by David Lieb of the Associated Press revealed that there is a lack of interest in seeking to be a state representative in many districts, and there also is a growin…
