  • Valor7: What I tried to say is that the actual money would not be there that quick. But a loan against that would work if they are willing to do that.

  • Lepard LLC: Why so long before it comes online? 911 took out a loan or bond with the known guarantee payment and began building..

  • Valor7: Actually no it is not, a dependable Revenue stream will not come on line until the 4th quarter of 2017 so 2018 budget will be up in the air, not quite sure what they will have. By 2019 budget all will be well.

  • Valor7: You mean that tax that the Commissioners would not put on the ballot for so many years? Strange things happened when the citizens got a chance to vote on that issue.

  • Valor7: I could have worded that better, we talked details, options, the pros and cons of each, in  order to arrive at the best ballot language to present to the voters. Hope that makes this clearer.

  • Valor7: sorry about the typos still working with just one arm in action
    April 13, 2016, 01:10:42 PM
  • Valor7: Yes and no. We talked details and options until we were blue in the face but I never heardbring it over, it was always the time was not right for the issue to pass. Glad to see the time in now right and I for one shall vote yes on the ballot. I would urge all others to do the sameour county is busting at the seams crimewise and no matter how many bad guys we send off there always seems to someone to replace them. The Sheriff's Office needs the help.

  • Lepard LLC: Gene Newkirk Rick I have waited for a Sheriff to bring it to me on what he wanted. I have pushed Mr long for a while to get it to me. He told me he was close to having or done. Now hopefully the people will get to decide on it. I spoke with Steve about this a few times.

Prom held in 12-year-old Sarah's honor Bash a blessing for family as girl enters hospice care. By Juliana Goodwin News-Leader October 25, 2009       
Years ago, Zeph Boand promised Sarah Jones he'd dance with her at prom.   
 triggerAd(1,PaginationPage,16);   
On Friday, he traveled eight hours for that dance.
Prom had to come early for Sarah, a 12-year-old who starts hospice next week.
Zeph, family, friends and complete strangers came together to organize a bash for a girl they say is a blessing.
Like any proper prom, there was a disco ball, a deejay, rhinestone shoes and ruffled dresses, cake, purple and silver balloons, and on the tables there were bowls of live goldfish to symbolize something Zeph said: "Of all the fish in the sea, I chose you to dance with me."
At the end of the night, Zeph, dressed in a tuxedo, lifted Sarah out of her wheelchair and as he cradled her in his arms, they danced to Lee Ann Womack's "I Hope You Dance."
Sandra Fuller, Sarah's mom, gushed with gratefulness to those who made this a reality.
"I want to tell these people thank you. They have been a blessing," Fuller said.
The general manager at the University Plaza Hotel and Convention Center stepped in and offered the room. Schaffitzel's Flowers and Greenhouses gave flowers. Catering Creations volunteered to provide food and the co-owner's daughter left a Bible for Sarah on the table. Leslie Davis, an employee at Hair FX in Nixa, volunteered to do Sarah's hair.
At the salon, when Davis was finished with Sarah's hair, Davis held up a mirror to Sarah and she broke out in a huge smile.
"Thank you," she said.
Throughout the night, Sarah kept saying, "I look beautiful." Sarah's story Sarah was born 15 weeks premature and with cerebral palsy, a general term for various neurological disorders that permanently affect body movement and muscle coordination.
She had a twin sister who died shortly after birth.
Sarah has struggled with health problems all her life including severe scoliosis, a curvature of the spine; arthritis, dislocated hips, muscle spasticity, numerous surgeries, and three months ago they discovered she has a chronic lung disorder.
"She'll say 'Mama, my body don't work.' And I say, 'I know but when you get to heaven, you will have a whole new complete body. You won't have to worry about your hips hurting,' " Fuller said.
