DARTS-Drug  Awareness  and Resource Team Services- received an 800.00 donation on the steps of the court house yesterday at 6pm from a sorority out of Phelps county. :{:{:
WE are a non-profit community based organization that has been quietly solociting help to combat the drug epidemic in and around Pulaski County. We have met many times we have invited law enforcement, emergency services, school officials, lawyers and religious leaders and more to join with us. Many have attended meetings.
We have looked for grants, land, buildings and funds from anyone to help us get information into the hands of our youth, the families of the addicted and the addict/alcoholics themselves. We have had very little luck but continue to press on.
For more information please read the article in the local newspaper.
I will be posting more on this grassroots organization later. There is PLENTY of room for your help. PM me for further info on helping out.
Thanks to all,

Hi everyone,
This is a promo for an interview that I did as part of a larger story. The story will air tonight on KOLOR 10 after the b-ball game.
If you happen to see it I would love to know your thoughts on the topic.
BTW, I am not the cat! I am the woman in the begining of the promo.

Pulaski Enquirer / Merry Christmas Emails
« on: December 22, 2008, 04:08:30 PM »
> It's just a small white envelope stuck among the branches of our Christmas tree.
> No name, no identification, no inscription. It has peeked
> through the branches of our tree for the past 10 years or so.
> It all began because my husband Mike hated Christmas --oh, not the true meaning of Christmas, but the commercial aspects of it -- the overspending, the frantic running around at the last minute to get a tie for Uncle Harry and the dusting powder for Grandma --the gifts given in desperation
> because you couldn't think of anything else.
> Knowing he felt this way, I decided one year to bypass the usual shirts, sweaters, ties, and so forth. I reached for something special just for Mike.
> The inspiration came in an unusual way. Our son Kevin, who was 12 that year, was wrestling at the junior level at the school he attended.
> Shortly before Christmas, there was a non-league match against another team sponsored by an inner-city church.
> These youngsters, dressed in sneakers so ragged that
> shoestrings seemed to be the only thing holding them together, presented a sharp contrast to our boys in their spiffy blue and gold uniforms and sparkling new wrestling shoes.
> As the match began, I was alarmed to see that the other team was wrestling without headgear, a kind of light helmet designed to protect a wrestler's ears. It was a luxury the ragtag team obviously could not afford.
> Well, we ended up walloping them. We took every weight class. And as each of their boys got up from the mat, he swaggered around in his tatters with false bravado, a kind of street pride that couldn't acknowledge defeat.
> Mike, seated beside me, shook his head sadly, "I wish just one of them could have won, he said. "They have a lot of potential, but losing like this could take the heart right out of them." Mike loved kids -- all kids -- and he knew them, having coached little league football, baseball, and lacrosse.
> That's when the idea for his present came. That afternoon, I went to a local sporting goods store and bought an assortment of wrestling headgear and shoes and sent them anonymously to the inner-city church. On Christmas Eve, I placed the envelope on the tree, the note inside telling Mike what I had done and that this was his gift from me. His smile was the brightest thing about Christmas that year and in succeeding years.
> For each Christmas, I followed the tradition
> --one year sending a group of mentally handicapped
> youngsters to a hockey game,
> another year a check to a pair of elderly brothers whose home had burned to the ground the week before Christmas, and on and on. The envelope became the highlight of our Christmas .
> It was always the last thing opened on Christmas morning, and our children, ignoring their new toys, would stand with wide-eyed anticipation as their dad lifted the envelope from the tree to reveal its contents.
> As the children grew, the toys gave way to more practical presents, but the envelope never lost its allure. The story doesn't end there.
> You see, we lost Mike last year due to cancer. When Christmas rolled around,I was still so wrapped in grief that I barely got the tree up. But Christmas Eve found me placing an envelope on the tree, and in the morning it was
> joined by three more.
> Each of our children, unbeknownst to the others, had placed an envelope on the tree for their dad.
> The tradition has grown and someday will expand even further with our grandchildren standingaround the tree with wide-eyed anticipation watching as their fathers take down the envelope.
> Mike's spirit, like the Christmas spirit, will always be
> with us.
> May we all remember Christ, who is the reason for the
> season, and the true Christmas spirit this year and always.
> God Bless!

Local News / Jarae Jones Case
« on: October 29, 2008, 01:15:43 PM »
I saw this today on KY# and thought some of you might be interested.
WAYNESVILLE, Mo. -- Police arrested a man in Cincinnati on Tuesday for the murder four years ago of a teenager and her unborn daughter in Pulaski County. There's also a warrant for a man who lived in New Orleans, who is the third suspect to be charged.
It was four years ago -- Oct. 7, 2001 -- that 17-year-old Jerae James of Waynesville was bound and thrown inside the trunk of her car, which was set on fire in an open field near St. Robert. Jerae James died, as did her unborn daughter, whom she had already named Jalin.
Luther Martin was charged with the murders and is scheduled to stand trial early next year. Martin was a soldier at Ft. Leonard Wood when James and her daughter were killed.

Local News / Thieves in our county
« on: September 01, 2008, 03:47:43 AM »
on friday night my purse was stolen out of my unlocked car. Yes, I know that it should have been locked and my purse shouldn't be in there anyway, but sometimes you just have your hands full and forget.

When I called the Sheriff's Office they were very professional and quick to come out and search the area. He said that they usually take what they want from the purse and then throw it out the window nearby the home.

The Deputy validated what I had already heard on PCW and f2f. There are thieves running around stealing things on private property.

Please, be more carefull than I was and lock up tight.

It will suck to have to get a new ID and a new Driver's license.


Local News / motorcycle wreck
« on: April 25, 2008, 04:48:19 PM »
I just (11:30am)past a horrible wreck on Hwy.7 about 4 miles North of I-44. There were plenty of emergency personell on the scene.
 I only saw the one motorcyle. From what I could see, it didn't look good for the driver. I pray that I am wrong.

So, I can't find the thread that we used before about this topic. If a moderator can find it and move this to the appropriate place, I would appreciate it, greatly.
I want to make the text that follows clear before you hear about this on the radio(KJPW), the Daily Guide, and the Richland Mirror.
Anyway, I am a homeowner in Cedar Hills Estates which is located in Liberty township. Today we, the owners and managers of homes in Cedar Hills, attended the commissioners meeting.
We previously spoke with the Commissioners, which were extremely helpful, about having PCSD take over the management of the sewer our 18 homes have been using since 1995. The current owners,of the sewer, have recently decided to move and no longer attempt to manage the sewer. Due to their lack of management in the last decade we are faced with a DNR violation and must make exspensive upgrades.
We, the homeowners, do not wish to manage and collect billing for the sewer and wish for PCSD to take over. The commisioners agreed to have the Cedar Hills Estates served by PCSD which we are thankful for their help. However, the PCSD sees legal issues by creating a subdistrict including only Cedar Hills as opposed to all of Liberty Township which is already considered a subdistrict. The people of this rural township appear to not want the regulations of PCSD, which is understandable. The homeowners are NOT asking for the entire area of Liberty township to be included. We only speak for our neighborhood and only are asking for help for this specific area.
The commissioners prossed that the PCSD contract with the home owners, temporarily, while they work out the legal issues with the court. We are grateful for thier help and will attend the PCSD board meeting on Tuesday, March 18th at noon to further discuss the issue.
I hope that this is clear so that the citizens of Liberty township understand that we are NOT trying to include them in this endeavor.
I invite other homeowners in CHE, members of PCSD, or Commissioners that read this board to correct anything that I have stated incorrectly.

Did you watch it?
What did you think?

I think that it was fair in comparison to several of his others. I am interested in whether or not he can actually make an his Executive Order on reducing pork barrel. If he can, I am pretty sure it would take another President to change it in the future to change it in the future. Who, in their right mind would do that?

Wow, I am out here on the square in beautiful weather listening to Joan from "Joan's Jazz Studio" and her sax accompaniment. jfjThis is is amazing! Come out and join me at Caffe' Italia!

Gardening / Deer
« on: August 13, 2007, 05:15:55 PM »
I'm gonna ask a question but puh-leeze, don't tell me that you have some sort of weapon that you would be glad to use in an effort to help me out!

I love the deer on my property AND I love my various gardens however they don't mix well. The deer have eaten the tender new growth off of all of my 2/3 year old trees and the sweet potato vine that covers a slope in my front garden..

I KNOW that they are hungry! I would love to feed them something other than the items mentioned above.

Please, help me with your experience in this area.
