There isn't ayone who inspects these places..

so when there is cat hair all over an item are they going to clean it off? Babies dont need to have cat hair on any of their items, and i could see someone suing or something if their child or even them gets scratched or bitten by this cat. Im sure this is not allowed by whoever inspecets these places.

I had looked at buying that business a year ago, and yes the employees do pull things they want before they hit the floor.. It's considered incentive to work there. Each employee had a large bin in the back room.. I think that place is so busy that it does sell out of the good items really fast..

i agree, i didnt know you could get cash back-i thought it was only store credit. the employees probably get the pick of the litter before they put the 1980's stuff on the rack.

I was recommending someone to go there that was in my store, and said they have a bunch of cats in there, is that really true? They acted like it was several..
I went in there today and it smelt bad....I think they have  a damp problem?? the cats were wrestling on the floor and the place was really disorganized... I have $90 in credit there...sheesh! It was just like walking through a stinky yard sale

What is your opposing position?

I believe most of us on here are genuinely concerned about the community, and defend it jealously. That is not a bad thing..

Thanks for steping up and giving us the straight skinny..

I have been an investigator for the department of social services, police officer and municipal judge. I have been slapped, spit on, screamed at, threatend and I have had dead animals hanging on my front porch. I dont much care for my character being questioned but I can take it. I am the first to admit that I have made mistakes, running for this office is not one of them. I truly believe that I can do the job better than any of my oponents or I would not have ran in the first place.

Do you really want the current commissioners or candidates to come on this site to join in on your conversations? Are you really willing to listen to their opinions? I am not so sure. The reason I have not joined in on any of your conversations since the first time I came on is because most of you dont want to hear any opposing positions. That is my honest opinion, I am not bashing anyone personally. Just my thoughts and I am sure the thoughts of all the other candidates.

Had Lasagna, yesterday and it was awesome, had a salad with it, salad was great. Toast was good, and fresh veggies were hot and good..

Today I had his hot wings again, he has great hot wings, highly recommend.

That's awesome, keep up the good work.. Thanks for helping make our local area players better, and giving our kids positive things to do.. Can you let us know when the next home game is?
My U14 Traveling/ Competitive team welcomed Candenton to the big (competitive) league in Springfield last Saturday by handing them a 7-0 beating - in a soccer game.
My team is comprised of 'all-star' level players from Waynesville, Saint Bob, Dixon, Laquey and Iberia, and this is their 3d season together traveling around the state playing year-round soccer.  They are truly a pleasure to watch play the game, demonstrating they have an understanding level several years advanced for their age bracket.
After a disappointing 1st game 1-0 loss in which my team controlled the ball 70% of the time and took 13 shots on goal, the team has found its stride, winning two straight.  At 2-1 now, they have outscored their opponents 13-2 on the season.
We attribute the slow start to six weeks of rain and the inability to practice on a soccer field, thus the reason for a lack of 'finishes' the first game.  While the fields are still a mess, we have compromised and focused on off-filed finishing exercises, resulting in 13 points scored in only two games.
After ending the first half ahead at 2-0, the team lost a very tough 1st place game at the end of the last season with a final score of 2-3 vs Springfield Soccer Select.  The loss resulted in a 6-1-1 season, and a strong second place finish.  The team is looking much more technically sound this season and we are hoping to make another run at first place.  Next Saturday's game is against the team that took first last season, who is also undefeated so far this season.  Should be a great game.
I think its awesome that we are able to compete with the powerhouse soccer communities with a 'thrown-together' team from our little area.  Looking forward to a great season.

Gary has never once got on here and fed us a pile of bull.. He will always have my respect.. The successfully candidate on this board is not feeding us the bull..
 I don't doubt for one second thathe could be the man for the job, but don't come on here and insult the intelligence of the board members like some of the Commissioners have done, and not expect to have it pointed out.. The other Commissioners don't come on here because they know were not dumb enough to fall for their bull.

yes teddy was asked to come on here, i was the one who asked him. none of the commissioners that are in office right now will get on here and post anything for the public because they really dont care what the people want. the only commissioner i have ever respected was gary because he was willing to post answers on things we wanted to know about. and that is why i respect teddy because he is willing to do the same. i have known him for 33 years now and he would do a great job.

Wait a minute, in one post you tell us you are Ted Helms and in another you write this, and I quote, "I was reading Ted Helms web site and it says that he is in favor of a sales tax."

Don't try and pretend you were not trying to fool us by changing your name, you screwed up, people caught it and brought it to my attention. I was not being unfriendly in any way.. I was just stating your obvious error.. Judge for yourself people, go read his history of posts, but remember he was changing his name regularly.

And another thing don't refer to me as rich, I am not rich at all.. One more thing don't say you don't need my endorsement again, I wasn't offering one, and you sure as hell won't get it thinking you can fool the people of Pulaski County. Now you have a reason to bitch about me.. Enjoy.

I know the name changes Rick, I watch what I post. I notice others have different names and I was exploring that option. I received a message with an elvis character after I had switched my name and I switched again to ask them how I can use it. I didnt ask for, nor do I want or need your endorsement. As far as the job I am a candidate because I know I can do better than what we have now, and I am qualified for the job, I would have already dropped out if I thought I wont do a better job than those who are also running. As far as paying taxes, I have paid personal property tax since I was 17 years old. Just for your information, as I have stated many times I live on my brothers farm. I live in a mobile home that I am paying for, so I don't pay real estate tax, my brother does. I am not a rich man like many of you, I have to make my signs for the job. It does not disqualify me from the job because I do not own real estate, so what difference does that make. I got on this site because I was asked to come on. I thought that is what you all wanted, candidates and the current seated office holders on the site to get their opinions. I liked what I saw on here so I have been reading to gather information and get ideas. What other purpose is the site suppose to have, other than getting information and giving opinions. I have received a lot of information about the law enforcement tax and I support a form of the tax because of what I have learned here. I have never suggested that any one is naive or that any one cant figure out who I am. My web site is on the bottom of this response and has been for a while. Maybe you should only be inviting people to the blog that feel the same as you. Maybe every time someone writes something they should say all the names they are capable of writing something under so we all know who they are.

Ate there again tonight. I have the Porterhouse Steak it was wonderfull.. The potato was hot, they gave me the extra butter I asked for on my potato. The toast was good, the ceaser salad was terrible.. My moms steak was impossible to chew, and my mom will eat steak without cutting off the fat, so if she complained, it had to be bad..
BUT! My steak was awesome.. Then again for 22 dollars or so, it had better been..

When you change your name on a post, it changes that name to all the posts you have made.. I am somewhat concerned you might not be the man for the job from what I read here. You pay no property tax? You talk about yourself in the third person? I have figured out by looking at all your old posts who you are now, so can many others as it has been pointed out to me.. The INTERNET community is not naive..

Please understand that I am not talking about the good folks that live on post paying property tax here, many of them pay property tax in the state where they call their real home because they own real estate there.  I do understand that the good people that live on post are not land owners and I have no problem with them only paying sales tax when they come off post to buy things. I have been a renter most of my life and I have not paid a dime in real property tax to the county, personal property tax, YES a bunch. I feel that as the land owner, the federal government should pay impact funds to county governments that dont receive money for the thousands of acres out there. Just an opinion of a life long county resident, and again I am not bashing the military men and women on or off post who dont pay real estate tax. I guess I better clarify that I am also not federal government bashing either. I know that without the post or the people on it we would all be somewhere else, writing on a county blog.

News Release
Arrest Armed Robbery –Identification of Suspects

Bubba is always getting in trouble.
This applies when a person has been sentenced on two different criminal charges. Concurrent means that both sentences will be served at the same time. For example, Bubba is charged with two counts of Shoplifting, he recieves thirty days on each sentence for a total of sixty days. Now if the judge orders the sentences to run concurrent, Bubba is going to do both sentences at the same time for a total of thirty days.

Consecutive means that each sentence will have to be served separately. This time Bubba is charged with two counts of littering, and gets thirty days on each count for a total of sixty days. The judge orders the sentences to run consecutive. that means Bubba has to do thirty days on his first littering charge, then when that is done, he has to do thirty more days for his other littering charge, for a grand total of sixty days jail time.

News Release
Conviction in Child Molestation Case
Pulaski County Sheriff J. B. King
April 13, 2008
During the month of July 2006, the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department Detective Division, Crimes against Children section, was advised of an alleged criminal violation involving a small child, which occurred in the Crocker, Missouri, area. An intense investigation by the Sheriff’s Department resulted in the filing of one count of First Degree Statutory Sodmy and one count of First Degree Child Molestation against a Crocker, Missouri resident.
The subject charged was Vance Lee Sinyard, age 38, of Crocker, Missouri. His case was later moved to Phelps County Missouri on a change of Venue motion. However the Pulaski County Prosecutor retained control of the case. On April 11, 2008, at the conclusion of a jury trial at the Rolla Courthouse a Phelps County jury found him guilty on both charges. The jury recommended a sentence of 15 years on the First Degree Statutory Sodmy charge and a ten-year sentence on the First Degree Child Molestation charge. A court hearing for the actual sentencing by the Judge has been set for May. Sinyard remains in custody at the Phelps County Jail in Rolla, Missouri.

News Release
Drug Arrest
Pulaski County Sheriff J. B. King
April 13, 2008
At approximately 9:30pm on April 11, 2008, two Pulaski County Deputies on routine patrol were going east on I-44 near the Buckhorn overpass when they noticed a motor vehicle with Texas plates that was also going east. The vehicle was traveling below the speed limit and was weaving on the road. The Deputies followed the car to the St. Robert overpass where the vehicle exited I-44. The car came to a complete stop at the yield sign and a small child was observed walking around the back seat. The Deputies stopped the vehicle in front of the BP station.
Upon contact with the driver, Ian D. Waters Sr., age 32, of Bryan, Texas, attempted to exit the vehicle. He was told to remain in the car. When he was later asked to step from the vehicle he became uncooperative and refused to remove his hands from his jacket pockets. A minute later he tried to flee on foot. After he was taken into custody Deputies removed two small plastic bags from his hand that contained a white powder substance believed to be cocaine.
A passenger in the vehicle, Erick Childs, age 26, of Bryan, Texas, was also taken into custody and both subjects were taken to the Pulaski County jail. While at the jail the passenger attempted to scatter a white powder substance behind a chair in the jail. This powder tested positive for cocaine.
A statement of probable cause was sent to the Pulaski County Prosecutor. The PA filed one count of distributing, delivering or manufacturing a controlled substance or possession with the intent to distribute a controlled substance on Ian Waters. His bond was set at $30,000.00.
The passenger Erick Childs was charged with one count of possession of a controlled substance. His bond was set at $15,000.00. At this time both subjects are held in the Pulaski County Jail.

The Sheriff’s View #16, Week of April 14 to 18, 2008
Welcome aboard for one more trip around Pulaski County with the Deputies of the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department. We have had another busy week. I know where I should start the column for today but the news it not news that I want to write about.
It is with great sorrow that I must announce the passing of our Reserve Deputy William “Bill” Forrest. Bill retired from the military a long, long time ago and went to work for the St. Robert City Police Department. Bill retired from that job a long time ago for a life of travel and leisure. But he could not stay out of law enforcement so he asked for a commission as a Deputy and has worked as a reserve officer for us for a long time. Bill passed away on Saturday April 12, 2008, at the Ft. Wood Hospital. We have all lost a good friend. Our thoughts and prayers are with Paula and the family.
I said we have had a busy week. As of Sunday morning the 13th we have 77 inmates on the jail list. This represents a nice jump in numbers for the jail when compared to just two weeks ago. The ebb and flow of inmates from the jail results in high numbers one week and much lower numbers the next week. A number of events have influenced the rise in numbers and a number of events will influence the drop in numbers.
As a start this past week was law “day” week. Almost every inmate we have on our jail list had some kind of court action this past week and they all had to be here in person for court. We have been moving them around every day to meet the court schedule. A number of inmates who are serving sentences with the Missouri Department of Correction (DOC) had to be brought here for action on additional cases they have pending. Then we made a number of arrests over the weekend and these people are held pending the filing of charges or the posting of a bond.
As we start into this next week we will shuffle more people around. The DOC inmates will be returned to the control of DOC. A number of members on our current inmate list received prison sentences this past week and as soon as the paperwork is completed they will be transferred to the control of DOC. The persons arrested over the past 48 hours will have a chance to post bond and some will do just that. Others may be released without charges being filed. The end result will be that by April the 16th our jail list will probably be back around the 65 count.
As of 10:00am on the April the 13th our calls for service/case number count stands at 2,767. We continue to acquire the numbers. As I have said before not all of the case numbers lead to a major event but it only takes a few to tie us up for some time.
As an example Black’s Market on Mo. 7 near the I-44 overpass was robbed at gunpoint on Saturday evening. Two persons displayed guns, robbed the store, and ran into the woods. Deputies responded to the area and were able to arrest two suspects. The money taken in the robbery was recovered. On Sunday morning the Deputies are still searching the woods for additional evidence so this case took some time to work. As soon as we have acquired sufficient details I will issue a news release on the event.
Likewise on Friday evening our Deputies made what they thought was a “routine” traffic stop on the city route in St. Robert. A vehicle driving slowly alerted them to a possible drunk driver. While they were following the car they saw an unrestrained child in the vehicle and they stopped the car. When that stop was over the Deputies had been assaulted, they found 48 grams of cocaine, and had two in custody with many charges. As soon as I have more details I will send out a news release on this event. And this event also took several hours to work.
So like I said at the start of the column we have been busy. We also had one of our old cases go to trial in Phelps County last week and we received guilty verdicts from the jury in a child molestation case we had worked back in 2006. I will send out a news release on this case soon.
I would like to report progress on the MODOT grant applications but I have done everything but the grants this past week. I lost one whole day due to depositions in an upcoming civil trial. The depositions took place in Springfield so I was gone that day. And on Tuesday we had the Lake Area Narcotic Enforcement Group (LANEG) meeting at the Osage Beach Police Department building in Osage Beach. So I lost a big chunk of that day.
I know I said last week that the LANEG Board of Directors would discuss the loss of the Byrne grants for drug enforcement and that I would pass on an update in this column. Well that did not happen. We had a number of urgent issues to attend to and we did not get to the funding problem. About the only issue I can mention today was the drug arrest round up in Camden County. A number of warrants had been issued for the sale of narcotics in cases made by LANEG officers and we were to coordinate with the Camden County Sheriff’s Department for the arrests. The roundup has already occurred and all suspects were located.
Once again I seem to have made it to the end of a column. I would like to once again remind everyone to please drive very carefully and stay very legal. I would also like to say that our jail list is full and despite the fact the lights are on the jail is closed! But I am only kidding on that point, we will find room for you somewhere.

I have the Bose 901 speaker and it is unlimited wattage in a home setting (Yes high dollar, $1500.00), but, I have some 1980's Tripple9 Kenwoods that blow them out of the water.
Bose speaker systems have always been the best. (But boy are they expensive!)
I know I am hijacking the thread too.  Sorry.  At least I tried to offer constructive help in the beginning.

Here's one for you conspiracy theorists.

My point was that no one can answer that question on either side of the isle. Not giving my opinion on the matter at all..
Would you like me to give you a link to the author so you can ask him?
I'm not being a smart a**, it's because I am unable to fathom eternity, I can't answer you.

Somewhere, sometime, in a great void of nothingness matter and energy began to create more matter and energy.  It had to have had 'intelligence' behind the activity to have any kind of order and success to it.  Whether we appreciate the value of each and every result just shows lack of knowledge on our part.
Space, as far as known awareness perceives, is infinite. Few would argue that.  A creator with no beginning or end falls into the same mind numbing category.

Where did the creator come from?
