Proposition K.I.D.S.

Dear Editor, I am writing this letter in favor of Proposition K.I.D.S.  I actually don’t think I have ever voted for a tax levy increase requested by a school district.  I have voted regularly for the last 23 years, but just don’t think it has ever been a ballot issue in a community in which […]

Proposition KIDS

Dear Sir, As retired teachers, we would like to express our support for Proposition K.I.D.S.  All of us have served in the Scotland County R-1 School District for many years and understand that our children, in order to succeed, need the very best possible environment. Infrastructure improvements, such as upgrading safety and security, technology, and […]

Public Health Funding

Dear Editor: I am writing on an urgent matter that deserves the citizens of Scotland County’s  attention and if willing their immediate action. Governor Nixon has indicated that he is continuing to withhold the funding in the State budget for FY15 that includes the line item for local public health agencies in the state. These  […]

Third Annual Prayer Walk

If we ask anyone between five-years old and one hundred what “Holiday” falls on October 31st, 100 percent will resound: “Halloween!” If we ask the same individuals what the next day proclaims, I guess 90 percent would stare back bewildered, because All Saint’s Day, November 1st, remains unknown by many, even Christians, as does All […]

(Keep Improving District Schools) on the upcoming ballot on Tuesday, November 4, 2014. Proposition K.I.D.S. levy increase would allow SCR-I to make facility upgrades to the elementary and high school buildings; complete […]

The Best Social Program Remains a Job

By Robert Romano On September 4, the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) and Fast Food Forward promised to shut down fast food joints across America in their Fight for $15 campaign. The groups propose increasing the minimum wage nationwide to $15 an hour from its current $7.25 level. The groups tout the increase as the means to lift […]


God expects my life to be Holy. I Peter 1:16 “Be ye Holy, for I am holy.” It doesn’t say, only if those around me are doing what is right and holy. It is sad when professing Christians leave a poor testimony, but we need to remember, we will be judged by what we do […]

Antique Fair

The 2014 Scotland County Antique Fair has been staged and curtains are now pulled. Lots of folks from Scotland County and communities all around enjoyed the festivities of this specially-planned week-end.  Did you see the many guests flocking to the Downing House Lawn Saturday, August 23?  There was a party going on there.  Many guests […]

Livestock Producers May be Eligible for Drought Compensation

Did you own livestock in 2012? What a year that was! Pastures and ponds dried up. Hay was a hot commodity and in some cases, hard to find. Things may have looked pretty bleak at the time. Fast forward to the passage of the 2014 Farm Bill with legislation authorizing the Livestock Forage Disaster Assistance […]
