What if …

Convicted felon? That’s OK as long as he meets the criteria. The NEA has managed to stack every school board in the county with liberal-leaning people. How does that happen in a predominantly Republican voting constituency? I believe there a number of reasons. The elections are in April and many people do not vote. The NEA uses its influence to get the teachers out to vote. The ...

A call to action

To the Editor: Attention PWSD #2 customers, your sewer bills will be going up in the near future. If this is a concern, please come to the next two or three monthly meetings. Very soon the PWSD #2 will be deciding on either a heavy maintenance lift station system or a low maintenance gravity repair or replacement. This will be determined by the PWSD #2 Board of Directors. Lake Saint Louis streets and yards will be torn up for the next 10 years or longer. Our community needs to stay involved and informed. Please come to the meetings and find ...
