Today is the celebration of the birth of St. John the Baptist.  John was preaching at the same time as Jesus and had a following of [font=]Disciples[/font] as well.  In fact, he probably had more disciples than Jesus.  However, John knew his job was to point the people toward Jesus because Jesus was the Messiah.

Can someone tell me what new businesses are going in behind Hardees and behind Culvers?  I've heard conflicting stories from people who think they know.  But I'm curious to find out the real story.  Also, do you know if there could be a new grocery store coming in?  We are so limited here.  Thank you if you can help clear up the rumors.

Mr. Prosecutor:  This is a legal problem I don't think is criminal, but I would like to know what direction to go.  I bought a house in another town in Missouri as investment property...not to flip or rent out.  Just as a weekend home for when I'm visiting family and maybe retire there one day.  The property has been encroached on for years by the next door neighbor.  They have put a fence about 20 feet into our backyard and built a garage (on their property) that requires them to use my driveway to use it and also built a little patio on our property which they use with a barbeque grill and chairs.  They use our driveway and actually park their cars in horizontally to keep us out.  Our house has another driveway which we have been using so not get into it with them right away as the house is being remodeled at this time and no one is there except workers.  We plan to eventually build a little garage/shop on the property they are using...which is mine.  When I bought it I had to sign a paper stating that I know of the encroachment, I assume because the bank didn't want to get involved in it either.  I have the city plat map which shows the property I bought.   My plan is to first get a survey and then have an attorney send the homeowners a letter giving them 90-120 days to cease use of our property and to move the fence off of my property.  But I wonder if that's necessary.  If I get the survey, I should just be able to use my property as I like and move the fence myself.  Can you point me in the right direction to solve this problem?  Do I need to contact an attorney?

Heard there was a pretty bad fight at one of the local watering holes last night...this from a guy who was there.  Said two motorcycle club members from the area beat another guy really bad...some desk guy from post.  I don't know what or who started it or who they are, and it's none of my business because I wasn't there, but 2 on 1 is wrong in anyone's book and doesn't say much for someone who can't fight his own fight without help.  Just my opinion on grown-ups acting like bullies.

Military Opinion / Tyler Smith - Procession passing through Rolla
« on: April 13, 2012, 12:44:53 PM »
Rolla, Mo. —    Rolla area residents will have the opportunity to pay their respects to a fallen soldier Friday.
Army Staff Sgt. Tyler Smith’s body is scheduled to arrive at the Rolla National Airport Friday morning around 10 a.m.
Smith, a Licking native, passed away April 3 in Afghanistan’s Kandahar province from wounds sustained when he was attacked with an improvised explosive device.
He was a scout squad leader with Headquarters and Headquarters Company, 2nd Battalion, 508th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 4th Brigade Combat Team, the 82nd Airborne Division.
The procession will start at the airport before making its way down Route 63 to Licking. Once in Licking the cortege will it will take a left on 32, a right on South Main Street, another right on College and a left back on to 63 to Houston. Once in Houston, the procession will head down 17 south to Summersville to the Bradford Funeral Home.
Funeral Services will be held Saturday at 2 p.m. at the Licking Pentecostal Church with Rev. David Jett and Rev. Jerry Dodson officiating.
Interment will be in Smith Cemetery of Texas County on Big Creek with full Military Honors and Honors Escort by the Patriot Guard.
The 2006 graduate of Licking High School, son of Dan and Jeannie Smith, leaves behind his wife, Lara, and children, 5-year-old Wyatt and 2-year-old Carson who live at Fort Bragg, N.C., and a brother, Ethan Smith.

According to Sgt. Dan Crain of the Missouri State Highway Patrol, several hundred Freedom Riders are expected to escort the hearse from the airport.
“It is a time to pay respect and a very somber occasion,” said Crain.
Crain said he hopes people will come out and show their support so the family knows the area understands the sacrifice they have made.
He also urges people to stay off the roads and on the sidewalks as the motorcade passes through Rolla.
“In the past the citizens of Rolla have done a remarkable and commendable job in showing up in large numbers,” said Crain. “It says a lot for the community and the individuals.  Rolla area residents will have the opportunity to pay their respects to a fallen soldier Friday.

This year is terrible.  There are no really good singers and several who are just awful.  I wish Simon Cowell was back.  These bleeding heart judges seem to be tone deaf and I don't like Stephen Tyler at all.  Having Tommy Hilfiger there to dress them up is just...stupid.

Business Opinion / Horse Meat Processing Plant Proposed in Ozarks
« on: February 28, 2012, 04:46:00 PM »
Wonder how they figure the "folks in Missouri" are 100% for this?
 
MOUNTAIN GROVE, Mo. —    A Wyoming-based company has been considering building a horse meat processing plant in southwest Missouri, where some residents welcome the possibility of new jobs but others are concerned about possible stigma.  Unified Equine has been conducting a feasibility study on a plan to build the plant east of Mountain Grove near the Wright-Texas county line. Wyoming state legislator Sue Wallis created the company last November after Congress approved a bill allowing the U.S. Department of Agriculture to begin inspections again for horse meat plants.  Wallis told KY3-TV she is confident the plant will open — perhaps by the end of the year — and that it would initially bring 40 to 55 jobs to the area, with possible expansion to more than 100.  "We wanted a state that was supportive of our efforts, and the folks in Missouri are 100 percent on board with what we're trying to do and how we're trying to do it," Wallis said.  The plant would slaughter and process about 200 horses a day in one shift, or up to 400 a day if there were two shifts of workers, and then distribute the horse meat to ethnic and specialty markets in the U.S. and abroad, Wallis said.  Supporters say in addition to bringing jobs to the area, the plant would put suffering or neglected horses out of their misery. Critics say they can't stomach the idea of horses being processed for meat.
Mountain Grove resident Danita McCraig said the plant would encourage people to move away.
"Everywhere you go, everybody's talking about it, the slaughter plant coming in," McCraig said. "It's sad they picked Mountain Grove to do something like that in, because basically, we have a good little town here, and I'm not originally from here. I'm a transplant, but I still have pride in the town, and I don't want it abused."
Nathan Kelly, owner of Wright County Livestock Auction, said horses often go for only about $50 at the monthly auction. He believes a meat market would increase their value and lead to fewer horses living neglected and malnourished.
"If you have an owner who can't give an animal away, can't afford to feed it, if they're working for $10 or $12 an hour, they can barely afford to feed their own family, much less their horse, so they're going to take care of their family first," Kelly said.

This is not a question and I don't expect a response.  I just want to mention what is happening to me.  When we bought our house (VA approved) in 1999, it was 28 years old and located in Flood Zone C with no possibility of flooding.  It is probably 50 feet above the nearest water.  Then in 2006, it was put in Flood Zone X...which we were told meant that part of our property could flood, but it didn't effect the residence.  We only found out because we got a 2nd mortgage to make improvements.  Then this year we decided to refinance to save a lot of money and get it paid off faster. Now we're told by the mortgage company (Wells Fargo) that we were put in Zone A in 2008.  But we were never told and now we are being FORCED to buy flood insurance for our house up on the hill has never and will never flood!  Wells Fargo actually said, "either you purchase it or we will purchase it for you."  So we submitted a request for a LOMA from FEMA and have hired an engineer to conduct an elevation survey and all this has to be submitted to Wells Fargo and FEMA for free.  And if you read the fine print?  It may or may not be acceptable to Wells Fargo even if the engineer and FEMA show that we are not in a flood zone.  So we have to pay $1,000 plus $1500 a year in uneeded insurance.  Go ahead and google some blogs and see that this is happening to Missouri residents all over the state.  No one will come look at the house or even drive by.  Who is getting rich by scamming honest citizens out of their hard earned money?  Someone is.

This is why the military SUCKS!!  They can never figure out how to use their frickin rules for those that really break them...  I'm just sick about this.  My cousin who has been in the Navy Seabees for 15 years (E-7) and never been married or met a woman to fall in love with, finally did.  He met the love of his life and they fell in love.  She is an E-4.  Neither have ever been married or even in a long term relationship.  They eloped and today they are both getting kicked out of the Navy.  It's not like they committed adultry, they didn't break up marriages, they just fell in love and got married like everyone else does.  His command is making sure that this travesty is punished to the highest degree.  I just feel like crying because I've seen SO MANY OTHER times where much worse horrible crap gets swept under the rug.  And these two wonderful people just found out they are going to have a baby girl and couldn't be happier.  I can tell you if his wife was a man it would probably be a different story.

I gotta admit...I really like how it's going so far.  Stephen Tyler is great and compassionate and for the most part kind.  He's a great addition to the show!  I like J-lo as well!  They are a terrific team with Randy Jackson.  I had my doubts at first, but I'm into it for the 10th season.  I think they have put too many through to Hollywood.  The cuts will be deep.

« on: September 29, 2010, 02:55:14 PM »
An older, white haired man walked into a jewelry store Friday evening with a beautiful much younger gal at his side. He told the jeweler he was looking for a special ring for his girlfriend.  The jeweler looked through his stock and brought out a $5,000 ring.

The old man said, 'No, I'd like to see something more special.'

At that statement, the jeweler went to his special stock and brought another ring over.  'Here's a stunning ring at only $40,000 the jeweler said.  The lady's eyes sparkled and her whole body trembled with excitement.  The old man seeing this said, 'We'll take it.'

The jeweler asked how payment would be made and the old man stated, 'by check.  I know you need to make sure my check is good, so I'll write it now and you can call the bank Monday to verify the funds and I'll pick the ring up Monday afternoon.'

On Monday morning, the jeweler angrily phoned the old man and said 'There's no money in that account.'

'I know,' said the old man, 'But let me tell you about MY GREAT WEEKEND!'   

See.......Not All Seniors Are Senile

My family and I went to see the Springfield Cardinals play at Hammons Field Saturday...it was SO MUCH FUN!!  It was Armed Forces Appreciation Night (free tickets and hotdogs for active and retired military).  General Quantock threw a first pitch, General Smith sang, "God Bless the USA" (pretty good--lol)..the color guard and Army band was there also.  There is a lot of fan participation and games.  If you want to have a good time for cheap...I recommend going.  We are going to start going now and then.  Aaron Miles was 2nd baseman...he's healing from a broken finger.  Very worth the drive.

Hero contractor recounts fighting off Taliban
[size=0pt]62-year-old ex-hippie saved the lives of 24, but refuses to be called a hero[/size]
By Mike Celizic
TODAYShow.com contributor
updated 9:41 a.m. CT,Thurs., Oct . 29, 2009
For two hours, a civilian contractor held off Taliban commandos with an AK-47, saving the lives of 24 people in a Kabul, Afghanistan, guest house. But while others are praising Chris Turner’s courage, the 62-year-old former hippie refuses to be called a hero.  “The real heroes were the three U.N. guards and the Afghan guards who lost their lives defending all of us,” Turner told TODAY’s Meredith Vieira Thursday from Kabul.  In the predawn darkness a day earlier, Turner and more than two dozen others who lived in a walled compound in Kabul were violently awakened by explosions and small-arms fire. The Taliban, who had been concentrating their attacks in the countryside outside the capital, had targeted the compound, where many United Nations workers were living while preparing to monitor a run-off presidential election.   Before the carnage was over, eight people in the compound, including three U.N. guards and two Afghan guards, would be killed. Turner knew them all. “I lived with all those people,” he said.  But no one died among those Turner undertook to protect at the back of the compound.  The attack came without warning. “We heard small gunfire, and then we took a bomb that set the guest house on fire. It was pretty quick. It filled with smoke almost immediately,” Turner said.  He grabbed his AK-47 assault rifle and ammunition and started getting everybody he could out of the four-story guest house. “We were able to get everybody out the back door that we could. There’s a washroom — actually, the maid’s quarters — and everybody was ushered into there,” Turner said. Meanwhile, Turner stayed in a courtyard outside the room, hoping to keep the Taliban from killing everyone.  At one point, he saw a suicide bomber trying to climb over the compound wall. “He came over the top of the wall, and I was able to shoot at him and keep him at bay so that he turned around and went to the front of the building and exploded himself,” Turner said calmly.  The bearded American repeatedly rejected efforts to label his actions as extraordinary. The reason he was the one holding off the commandos was because he happened to be the one who had a gun, he said.  “I was the only one in the back of the building who was armed. I was just praying that I could keep them at bay so that we could protect the women and men who were unarmed and unprepared for this kind of violence,” he said.   Turner first came to Afghanistan in the 1960s because that’s where the hashish was. He kept coming back because he came to love the country and its people. He even shot a documentary film there that he titled “Hashistan.”  His current job is working for an Afghan-American trucking company that delivers supplies to U.S. troops, work that he considers vital.  A native of Kansas City, Kan., Turner is described by his parents as a street-smart man whose actions were totally in character. “He always says, ‘I’ve got nine lives and I’ve only used seven.’ I think he knows when to back down and move forward,” said his mother, Helen Turner.  Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid, reached by telephone from Kandahar, said the attack was meant to warn people away from the Nov. 7 presidential runoff between incumbent Hamid Karzai and challenger Abdullah Abdullah. The strike was the biggest on the United Nations in Afghanistan in its half-century of work there. It sent the organization into lockdown across the country. The U.N. is assisting the runoff vote, though not conducting it, and the attack raised questions about the already shaky preparations.  Among the dead was the brother-in-law of Gul Agha Sherzai, one of the country's most powerful governors. The man was killed by a stray bullet as he watched the gunfight from a nearby house, a government spokesman said.  Turner, who survived being shot and imprisoned by the Soviet Army when they occupied the country in 1985, said that Afghanistan has become more dangerous than ever.  “The security situation here has deteriorated terribly in the last six months, and I think we’re losing the minds and hearts of the people,” Turner told Vieira. “The Taliban seem to have control over the outlying areas and [are] brave enough to come into Kabul and fight.” But the danger isn’t chasing Turner out of town. He told Vieira he intends to stay where he is and to keep doing his job. “This is my second home,” he said. “And I think I’m doing a valuable service, not only to the Afghan people but to the American military who need our supplies.”

Military Opinion / VETS - Don't tread on them!
« on: September 29, 2009, 08:53:53 PM »
Flag Burner Pilloried by Veterans  September 28, 2009Times Union, Albany, N.Y.     VALLEY FALLS, N.Y. -- This is a red, white and blue village that is still seeing red after a flag that flew over Iraq was burned by a 21-year-old.
The payback? He was publicly humiliated last Sunday by being duct-taped to the flagpole of Veterans of Foreign War 1938 say he desecrated Sept. 18.
Nick Normile, post commander and Vietnam War veteran, said he's been flooded with calls from media outlets since the events of last week received attention from local TV stations and newspapers. He's been asked to go live on a veterans radio show program from Tennessee, another radio show from Chicago and even received a call from NBC studios in New York City.
But Normile said he's not planning to let the story get any more attention and has declined appearances.
"I'm not trying to be some martyr or hero," Normile said. "I just did what I thought was right."
The 21-year-old appeared intoxicated when he entered the VFW post on the day of the alleged act, Normile said. When the man was refused service for not having a proper ID, he ran out in a fit of anger. He cut the rope of the flag, which had once flown over troops in Iraq, and ignited it with a cigarette lighter.
Two days later, Normile said the man was forced to sit in the sun pilloried for six hours as townspeople gathered across the street for a youth soccer picnic. A sign was hung around his neck detailing what he had done. It recalled the Middle Ages punishment, subjecting him to public humiliation and scorn.
"He'll never disrespect the flag again, I can tell you that," Normile said on Friday.
A week later villagers were hush-hush about the event, but patrons of the post bar gave a nod of agreement to the punishment, pointing proudly to a newspaper clipping of the event on a bulletin board.
Patriotism is on open display in this village of about 500, the walls of a defunct railroad bridge near it's entrance now brightly colored red, white and blue. Most of the historical homes have American flags of their own hanging from porches, some also adorned with the Don't Tread on Me flag, popular with Tea Party activists.
Normile said once he found out what the man had done, he knew he had to be taught a lesson. Normile said he went out hunting for him, but when he couldn't find him at his apartment, he sought the help of the man's uncle to bring him out.
"He manned up, he knew he had punishment coming, " said Normile, who described the young man he refused to identify as guilty and ashamed.
"I told him to think about those kids in the foxhole, and how they had no one to set them free, " Normile said. "It got to him, so I was satisfied. He showed a lot of remorse, no attitude."
Normile said the flag, whose pieces will be retired in a formal ceremony, had significant meaning. The villages auxiliary had been sending toiletries and other goods to Soldiers in Iraq, who then sent back the flag that had flown over their bunker. It was received with great attention and a ceremony.
State troopers and Rensselaer County sheriffs deputies said no charges had been filed by either the VFW post or the man.
