SPEAKOUT (573-471-6636) (12/22/14)
I was watching Dr. Phil and he had Michael Brown's parents on his show. Of course the so-called Rev. Al Sharpton was on video putting his two cents in. That man is causing divide in the country between the blacks and the whites. Sure I believe there are some police officers that are bullies and misuse their badges. ...
Christians have right to display their faith (12/20/14)
I originally had written a pithy column for today over the North Korean hacking episode and the potential impact of a cyber war. But with Christmas approaching at breakneck speed, no one wants to read yet another sobering story on the decline of America...
SPEAKOUT (471-6636) (12/20/14)
A student passed away from cancer awhile back. I was just wondering, can the kids put up some more pink shirts like they did in football for the Pink Out. A lot of people didn't get pink shirts. We would like to have a Pink Out night for basketball like they did for football team. This will bring the community together once again...
SPEAKOUT (573-471-6636) (12/19/14)
This is a message for MoDOT for removing the trees on Blodgett Road at H. Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you. I just wanted to call in and tell people that SEMO Health Network in Benton saved my life. I want to say thank-you very much for everything you did. ...
SPEAKOUT (12/18/14)
I've been listening to the news. Obama, Holder and Sharpton need to go buy them a mirror where then can look at themselves to see where the problem actually is. It's not with anyone else. All these riots and stuff, they can see anything they want, but this is the most radical, racial president that we've ever had from day one. ...
SPEAKOUT (12/17/14)
I get so sick of these little old gals sleeping around with everyone in Missouri and part of Arkansas. Then when they get pregnant, they have to do a DNA test with half the country to see who the dad is. Most of the time it's not even who they think it is. They need to get off their backs and get a job. Have they ever heard of that?...
Speakout (12/15/14)
I don't understand why Sikeston City Council took it upon themselves to beautify the highway coming into Miner. If Miner is so concerned about it, why don't they do something about it? Using Sikeston taxpayers' money to do Miner's stuff! It is Miner, not Sikeston, that is working on the highway beautification...
SPEAKOUT (12/13/14)
We are in our little town of Vanduser, and it has a terrible smell of burning beans or rice. This has been going on for weeks. It is in our garage, our house, our dryer, our clothes, our vehicles. The smell is not good. C'mon, can't someone fix this? The people that have the elevators don't live in this town, but we do. We shouldn't have to smell this. Give us a break...
Speakout (12/12/14)
This call is about the Ferguson supporters. We have a coward governor and a chicken president. We passed the law after 9-11 called the Homeland Security Act and the actions that were done in Ferguson were considered terrorism. They are homegrown terrorism. ...
SPEAKOUT (471-6636) (12/11/14)
I would like to know one thing. Where is Ol' Al, Holder and this President at when all these cities were being burnt to the ground? Ol' Al, he's real good about coming on national TV and running his big mouth. These police officers have a right to protect themselves and their community at all costs. ...
SPEAKOUT (471-6636) (12/10/14)
I'd like to find out, if you are planning on putting an awning on your house, how many feet do you have to be from the street to your driveway. And if it's an older house, are you grandfathered in? They put one over here on Garwood Street and its like 10 feet from the house...
SPEAKOUT (471-6636) (12/08/14)
I want to speakout about an elementary school here in Sikeston. I went there to have lunch with my granddaughter. They screamed the whole time and said shut up the whole time instead of be quite. I felt like I was eating at a prison, and now the children are being treated that way. I will never go to lunch there again. I think the teachers and adults should have more respect for the children, as well as the adults that are there eating with the children...
SPEAKOUT (471-6636) (12/06/14)
Our media, President and attorney general have shown great concern for months now over the death of a 300 pound, 6-foot robber on marijuana who attacked a police officer. Where is the concern for the millions of our Christian brothers and sisters who are becoming homeless refugees, threatened with death or convert? Many have seen their families tortured or decapitated and the women raped. ...
Historic dates fade, but memories remain clear (12/06/14)
While shopping recently, I mentioned to a couple of sales clerks that the date -- Nov. 22 -- was certainly one I well remembered in history. The clerks gave me that blank stare that clearly indicated they were clueless on my comment. So I quizzed them. Of course, neither could place any significance to the date until I mentioned the Kennedy assassination. They both then gave a nod of understanding though I am less than convinced they actually remembered...
SPEAKOUT (12/05/14)
Amnesty will destroy the America we have known and loved. The illegals are to be welcomed as workers, yet we have tens of millions of unemployed on welfare. We can't afford to pay the impossible debt we have. As many as 30 million illegals have poured across the border. ...
SPEAKOUT (12/04/14)
The Republican-led House intelligence committee has concluded their two-year probe of the Benghazi attack. Their findings have debunked the conspiracy theories and agreed with the Obama administration's version of events. Seven previous investigations have also reached the same conclusion. ...
SPEAKOUT (471-6636) (12/03/14)
I was wanting to know about Ruler Foods that is going into the old Marketplace building. Are they going to put a market in there or what? The sign is been up there for a long time and it doesn't seem like anything is going on. Are they going to put it in and if so, when?...
Speakout (12/01/14)
When is somebody gonna do something about people rioting in Ferguson? That is utterly ridiculous, burning down businesses, burning cars. They oughta put their butts in jail and make them work. Then they should have to take that money and pay it back for all the stuff they've looted. ...
SPEAKOUT (11/29/14)
I live in Morehouse and have a tree that fell on the ground. If someone wants it they can come and get it for firewood to keep them warm this winter. My number is 380-3636. I'm looking for a skincare lotion. It's called Fruit of the Earth skin cooling aloe vera with naturals skincare lotion. I'm having a problem finding what store it's in. If someone knows this lotion, please let me know where I can find it...
SPEAKOUT (11/28/14)
To the one who wanted some quilt scraps, please leave your number in the paper and I will give you a call. I think the public safety officers need to be checking Virginia Street and Mimosa Street about 3 o'clock in the afternoon. These cars come by here wide open, especially a red one...
Presidential hopefuls start testing waters (11/26/14)
Hillary Clinton, the heir apparent to the throne, may not find smooth sailing as many thought she would. The former first lady, secretary of state and senator has long been expected to walk into the Democratic presidential nomination with nary a concern...
Speakout (11/26/14)
I would please, please like to know when Lauren Wibbenmeyer is coming back to the news. You can call KFVS at 573-335-1212. This is about a cable company. They disconnected one of the neighbor's lines because they couldn't pay the bill and they left the wire hanging. Well, this is dangerous. I've got news for them. If I fall and break my arm or leg because of that wire, I will sue the #*&# out of that cable company...
SPEAKOUT (11/24/14)
I want to thank the person at Walmart when I went to get some apples. I misplaced my four-prong cane, and whomever it was, took it to Lost and Found. I hope they have a happy Thanksgiving. It made my day to get my cane back. The Sikeston VA Clinic does everything that they can to help people over there. ...
SPEAKOUT (11/22/14)
Recently my Mom was in the hospital for months. During that time, her and Dad's church pitched in to help transport Dad (he no longer drives) to see her. And they brought more food to the house for him than he could possibly eat. After Mom and Dad giving all these years to the church, it was heartwarming to see it returned...
SPEAKOUT (471-6636) (11/21/14)
Captain Sam Burke, a Sikeston High School graduate, is an amazing young Marine Corps leader and true American patriot. His speech at the Sikeston Field House was heartfelt and well-received by the students, vets and families in attendance. An excellent program and guest speaker presentation...
