On Tuesday, Aug. 4, Missourians will go to the polls to vote in the primary election. The consequences of this election are far greater than simply deciding who gets to run for office in November, however. We will also be asked to decide whether a program that already consumes about 35 cents of...
The ability to defend your home, your family, and your property is a right that is absolutely protected here in Missouri. It's also a right that has become even more essential as liberal mayors have failed to control violent mobs that are roaming the streets of their cities and have nothing to do...
This has been a very difficult year for those of us who live in Missouri’s southern rural areas. Over 100,00 children were removed from Medicaid and now we are dealing with the Corona Virus pandemic disrupting our lives, not only medically but financially. Missourians will be voting on Missouri...
I hate to break it to you folks, but not only are Americans becoming extinct, but so is America! In addition to children who weren’t raised correctly, the average voter across our land doesn’t care that they continue to vote for Representation in D.C. and our State who go with the flow. I would...
Dear Editor: I have a few things on my mind that I would like to share. I would like to thank Convoy of Hope and all the churches who have been involved in distributing the boxes of food every Thursday. They have gone above and beyond making sure the residents of Willow Springs Senior Housing have...

Thanks to all veterans who were in the Parade and were there to...

As a member of the Missouri Legislature, I normally focus my attention on matters before our state’s General Assembly, but I’m also a citizen and try to stay informed about legislation being considered in Washington, D.C. I’m especially interested in measures that directly impact us here at home...
After the death of George Floyd, Americans across the country were united in their calls for justice. Now, over a month later, the responsible calls for justice have been drowned out by violent mobs. Local leaders in major U.S. cities have demeaned their law enforcement officers so harshly over...
As I watched the News last week, I decided it is now official.  Americans are becoming extinct!  As a boy born in 1949 I grew up in a country which didn’t tolerate lawlessness.  Criminals were placed into prisons when they broke our laws.  Law Enforcement was respected because the average citizen...
