If Barack Obama had fired James Comey during the Clinton email investigation, he would have been pilloried by the GOP – and rightly so. Such an act would have been seen as an attempt to circumvent an active investigation and aid Hillary Clinton.
My husband and I have been living in Union for 46 years. Within the past 1 1/2 years our city experienced three extreme precipitation events that dropped at least 6 inches of rain within two days. (Dec 28-29, 2015; Sept. 8-9, 2016; April 29-30, 2017). Older residents also remember the 100-year floods of 1982 and 1993. The present devastating flood, however, occurring just 1 1/2 years after the last record flood is very unusual.
Monday, May 15, the nation observes Peace Officers Memorial Day and the start of National Police Week as a tribute to all the federal, state and local officers killed or disabled in the line of duty.
To Whom it May Concern: I am writing to you today to share some exciting news. As you may know, in May 2015, the Emmaus Board of Directors voted to begin transitioning clients from the Marthasville campus to the community, with a commitment to complete the move by July 2020. However, I’m thrilled to share that we are ahead of schedule and our newest projections indicate that all of our clients should be transitioned to the community by March 2019.
First of all, let me make it clear that I am for legal immigration. I am against “illegal” immigration and the phenomenon of “sanctuary cities.” Our government is not a big game of monopoly where you have a “get out of jail free” card.
Regardless of President Trump’s policies, it is important to understand why his words resonate, and to acknowledge that, in many cases, the problems they are bringing to the surface point to people who feel left behind.
To: Aaron Miesner, Marthasville.
My name is stated in the publication. It is not the music, but the vehicles themselves. I am simply stating my opine, as we Americans generally do. I am curious as to why my opinion stresses you out so?
Mr. Miller, regarding Sen. Claire McCaskill’s vote on the nomination of Neil Gorsuch for Supreme Court, let me assure you that while you may believe that all Missourians are for Gorsuch and supported Trump, there are a few of us who believe Sen. McCaskill made the right decision.
The Alliance for Aging Research supports Sen. Roy Blunt (R-MO) in defending against the Trump Administration’s 11th-hour, proposed $1.2 billion funding cut to the National Institutes of Health (NIH) for the remainder of fiscal year 2017.
Your Protection = Regulations. What are the rules called that protect you and make your job safe? The air you breathe clean, the water your (grand)kids swim in and the soil they play in free from dangerous chemicals? The answer: regulations.
You have to wonder what’s behind President Donald Trump’s proposed budget that maximizes military expenditure for hard-powered war preparation with more tanks, bombers, missiles and even more nuclear weapons. He wants to increase military hardware spending by $54 billion this year.
Since 1924 Missourians have paid a motor fuel tax to construct and maintain our roads. Today, unelected bureaucrats in Jefferson City want two taxes for our roads: a fuel tax, and a toll tax forced on Missourians through a public-private partnership (PPP).
I am writing this letter on behalf of the man behind the success of the Washington Navy JROTC program, Lt. Raines, the instructor/teacher for the last 2 1/2 years.
The following letter was sent to the Washington School Board:
I am a retired lieutenant colonel in the United States Army. I served this country for 28 years and served in two wars. I have been a member of VFW Post 2661 for over 30 years and currently am the VFW board president.
I just read the front page of The Missourian and the story titled, “Bar Owners Want Utility Lines Buried.” I really want to thank you for writing the article and bringing attention to this subject.
Thank you to the great person who found my dog on St. Louis Rock Road and brought it to the Humane Society Friday, March 3. I am so grateful to you. Your kindness is appreciated.
In the 2016 campaign, Donald Trump criticized Hillary Clinton for having “close ties” to Vladimir Putin due to donations to the Clinton Foundation from Viktor Vekselberg, a Russian billionaire oligarch and Putin ally. This is true. Vekselberg contributed somewhere between $50K-$100K to the Clinton Foundation.
The Missourian recently reported that Lt. Gov. Mike Parson advocates for closing Missouri veterans homes and “allowing” veterans to use their benefits in private nursing homes. I was the “eyes and ears” for the out-of-state guardian of a Vietnam-era veteran who had a stroke in his late 50s. His body was afflicted, but not his mind.
In this era of attack on rights of all kinds it is absolutely necessary to raise awareness and protest this war on the rights of all human beings and specifically women.
On Friday afternoon, Feb. 17, 2017, while driving to St. Louis, our daughter suffered a serious medical issue which required an ambulance ride to the ER. It was necessary to immediately stop the car and fortunately we were near a driveway in which to park the car.
I’m writing to let others know about an extraordinary local group and to express our sincere gratitude for their contributions to Franklin County Jets Youth Running Club.
We will remember 2016 not only for the return of populism throughout the Western world, but also for the blindness of those who could not see the difference between right-wing and left-wing populism.
