Looking for a sign

This is to the person that took the handicapped parking signs from in front of the Morley Church of Christ building. We wish you would bring them back if you would. If not, I'm sure there will be a warm reception waiting on you at the end of time.

Trump won't make it

If Trump gets elected, he will be impeached within the first two years. He won't be able to get along with anybody, he's got such a smart mouth. I just don't think he will ever make it.

What's Mike's opinion?

It's been almost two weeks since Martin Luther King Day and we are still waiting on an editorial by Michael Jensen on changing the name of Main Street to Martin Luther King Boulevard. Is Mike going to print an editorial on this issue?

Stay tuned!

Let's get fiscal

Just read the story about the BMU impending rate hike of 15 percent. Now that will be 30 percent within the last two years. What Sikeston BMU customers do not need is a rate hike of this magnitude. If the story is correct, their will be more rate hikes by 2022. What we don't need is that. What we do need is a more fiscal, responsible administration, and a more fiscal, responsible mayor and city council.

This increase is dictated by a bond covenant. It is not a Council decision.
