Ideas for Wentzville Schools

To the Editor: It’s no secret that the Wentzville School District is growing. Take a drive around the area and chances are you will pass a new subdivision or a house under construction. All this growth is good for our local economy, but it puts a strain on our local school district. New houses bring new students, which means overcrowding in our local schools. Our district leaders have proposed several ideas for how we might deal with this problem. These ideas force taxpayers to decide between busing, redrawing school boundaries, increased class sizes, or raising property taxes. There is, however, ...

More options for mental health care

To the Editor: I just read your article “Breaking Barriers – Opening up the discussion on mental health” in the March 11 issue of the Mid Rivers Newsmagazine. While it was a wonderful article, I was disappointed to see that nowhere in your article was Crider Health Center mentioned. Although you may not be aware, Crider Health Center is a local provider of mental health services including school-based, community-based and outpatient counseling and psychiatry for both adults and children. We provide a broad spectrum of services for those with severe and persistent mental illness among a targeted population of individuals ...

Letter to the Editor: Obama as CEO

To the Editor: I have felt compelled for a while to write an opinion about the current administration serving the United States. “Serving” might not be the correct word to describe this group. I still find it amazing that a junior senator from Illinois can suddenly be elected to head the most powerful political, economic and military country in the world.

Medicaid Reform – close the gap

To the Editor: Medicaid expansion or Medicaid reform may be defined as closing the (coverage) gap for persons/families that make too much money for Medicaid, yet make too little money for the Health Insurance Marketplace subsidies. Currently, these citizens have no way to get affordable insurance. However one wishes to term it, Missouri needs to act to:

Responding to ‘Global shift’

To the Editor: A recent letter from Donald D. Meyer (“Global shift,” Mid Rivers Newsmagazine, Jan. 14) suggested that we “compliment former President Jimmy Carter” for his suggestion that “Israel’s recent lopsided and brutal assault on Gaza was the equivalent of German atrocities exposed at Nuremberg after World War II ....”

Let us go in love

This summer I traveled to another country where I was a minority, and a discussion in that country sparked my thinking about prejudice and racism. After I returned, Ferguson unfolded, and I watched racial lines being drawn. Regardless of my own ethnicity, I realized no one is actually free from deeply-held prejudices or stereotypes.

Global shift

The shift in Israel of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu further to the right is foreboding and most certainly is not in the interest of the United States.

New Sammelmann farm park

So, County Executive Steve Ehlmann is “disappointed”and County Council Chairman Mike Klinghammer disagrees with over 7,674 of his constituents (3,837 households of at least two persons submitted county surveys) for their choice of the “best use” of the new 116-acre park in St. Charles County (“County park on site of former Sammelmann farm to remain natural,” Mid Rivers Newsmagazine, Dec. 17).

Protests

To the Editor: Yesterday (Nov. 16), once again, protestors shut down traffic in Clayton. It is ridiculous that the lawbreakers can disrupt regular citizens with no parade permit and suffer no consequences in the name of “political correctness.” When are the law-abiding citizens going to wake up and stand up for law and order regardless of race or ethnicity.

Free fish

To the Editor: Each week I look forward to the delivery of West Newsmagazine in my mailbox free of charge. West gives me the opportunity to learn what is going on in the communities and schools and what is being discussed in terms of changes, developments and legislative issues. I also enjoy most of the letters to the editor, and Thomas Sowell always makes me think about things in a way I may not have done otherwise. I assume that the reason the paper is free is because the people who advertise realize that the publication is widely read by ...
