I can attest at age 22 I had about 30 people under me at Tracker Boats where I was a supervisor. After a while you hear so many complaints you have to start ignoring some of the complaints people tell you about others because you have to get the job done rather than dealing with all the crap all day. There will always be problems in any business that hires humans, it is the nature of the beast.. It is also the nature of the ones in charge to hope things work out for the better of the company, if you stop to investigate every little complaint nothing gets done. Sounds like things just got out of hand at the city. Happenes everywhere though, not something new to St. Bob.
This might upset the ladies but I had more complaints from the three women I had on that line than I had with the 27 men combined. LOL

Remember when this was our little secret?
Thought FORR named it the Richard Engle Park.


Why did the Daily Guide have to print "The Shrine Park is the same venue where they have the Freedom Rally" Now everyone will think we have naked women, drinking people, and so on.....oh crap, we do. Well they still did not need to add that to their article

What big biker showdown? What happened at the shrine club?


I am suprised that there is no more action on this part of the PCW.
 
After the big biker showdown last weekend in Waynesville, I though that it was time for me to own a scanner. For just about $100 programed at Radio Shack and I was in... And so after a week of listening, I completely understand how the truth and what is said publicly is alot different at times.
 
For starters, that 'quiet litte get together' out at the Shine Club, is a lot different over the scanner... As close as I figure, it took 14 officers from at least 4 different agencies to control the crowd last night. 'Quiet litte get together?' yea right! What I thought that was funny, in a sense, was that after some of the officers left, one was complaining to another that he had a headache from all the drug smoke in the air...Or maybe I just missed the point where smoking pot became legal in Mo?
 
Next, Does anyone drive through Waynesville after 8pm and not get a ticket? Waynesville Police must have wrote 100 tickets last night. Is there really that much crime in Waynesville?
 
If you don't own a scanner, you should really buy one and listen... its a real eye opener!

So I was wondering why you can only buy three boxes of Nite Time Cold medicine. So I looked into it.
 
 Dextromethorphan (DXM or DM) is an antitussive (cough suppressant) drug. It is one of the active ingredients in many over-the-counter cold and cough medicines, such as Mucinex DM, Robitussin, NyQuil, Dimetapp, Vicks, Coricidin, Delsym, and others, including generic labels. Dextromethorphan has als...o found other uses in medicine, ranging from pain relief to psychological applications. It is sold in syrup, tablet, spray, and lozenge forms. In its pure form, dextromethorphan occurs as a white powder.[2]

 DXM is also used recreationally. When exceeding label-specified maximum dosages, dextromethorphan acts as a dissociative hallucinogen. Its mechanism of action is via multiple effects, including actions as a nonselective serotonin reuptake inhibitor[3] and a sigma-1 receptor[4][5] agonist and the action of its major metabolite dextrorphan as an NMDA receptor antagonist, producing effects similar to those of the controlled substances ketamine and phencyclidine (PCP),[6] as well as the active metabolite 3-methoxymorphinan, which produces local anesthetic effects in rats with a potency above dextrorphan but below dextromethorphan itself.[7]

  Search warrant, The Rolla Police Department, South Central Drug Task Force and Phelps County Sheriff’s Department served a search warrant at the Pleasure Zone. We were looking for illegal synthetic marijuana, synthetic meth, and other synthetic drugs that are called bath salts, incense, plant food etc. We recovered about $100,000 of the products that will have to be sent to the lab for testing. We have had kids steal their parent’s credit cards and purchase these products; one used their parent’s card to buy $1,700 worth of the product another bought $250.00 worth. This is a serious problem, we have had overdoses and serious health issues from these products.
