SPEAKOUT (01/31/15)
This is to the woman that lives in the housing project. You are lucky that they gave you 30 days to get out. They gave me 10 days. Thank God I had a way to get me a home. If it wasn't for my kids, I don't know what I'd do. All they think of is themselves...
SPEAKOUT (01/30/15)
Find God's church. If you go to a church, they do not let you see how much offering they collect and how much the pastor makes and his family takes care of the finances and there's no voting and they do not take care of the church and it needs to be repaired. If you go to a church like that, you better check the other churches out because they will let you know where your hard-earned money is going. Thank the Lord...
SPEAKOUT (01/29/15)
I guess depending who you are, everything can be free. Medical, Welfare, food stamps, it just depends on who you are. Hey ladies and gentlemen, if you want to see a monstrosity of a mess (or whatever you want to call it without using foul language), come on over to East Prairie and see the downtown improvement on Main Street. ...
SPEAKOUT (01/28/15)
Hello Southeast Missouri. Hello Americans. Playoff games were okay. Green Bay choked. Indianapolis never showed. Seattle and New England in the Super Bowl. I have to go with New England. Get all the football players to play football. One made a touchdown and grabbed his crotch. Not cool. Be respectable to the ones that are watching and paying the bills. You are a good football player, but grow up and have a little tact...
SPEAKOUT (01/26/15)
I lost my drone. It flew away in Sikeston on Saturday. Please return it to me. If you find it. $100 reward. Call 573-380-0239 This is for "Surprise visit." First of all, this is not free government help that they give to the elderly and handicapped. ...
SPEAKOUT (01/24/15)
Obama has finally achieved his goal: the worst president in history. A bigger liar than Clinton, weaker and more cowardly than Jimmy Carter, bigger crook than Nixon and bigger racist and hypocrite than Lyndon Johnson. All the people who voted for him or didn't vote at all should be extremely happy. I and a lot of people I know think he's a curse on this country...
SPEAKOUT (01/23/15)
We Americans need to wake up and take charge of our country again. The media aren't helping by focusing mainly on two black men killed by white cops and Hollywood, sports and entertainment. Our country was founded by Christians seeking freedom of religion. ...
SPEAKOUT (01/22/15)
Our government officials in Missouri say we don't have enough money to repair our roads. But they did not have any problems whatsoever giving themselves a raise. They had plenty of money for that. The real problem with not having enough money for roads or schools is that most Americans, except for the rich, have been put out of work and their jobs taken away. There is no way that's going to be corrected unless the rich pay more. They can afford it and nobody else can...
SPEAKOUT (471-6636) (01/21/15)
You need to correct your introductory comments to speakouts with 'thinking we don't agree with will not be published,' because that's really what's going on. I want you to ask the question why the drug mebendazole was removed by the pharmaceuticals with the consent of the FDA from the American market. ...
Community must get rid of violent influence (01/17/15)
The tragic and chaotic homicide last week on highly-traveled North Main Street is a stark reminder that violence can erupt at any time and any place here or elsewhere. It should go without saying that our Public Safety personnel deserve ample credit for their swift investigation into the shooting and their ability to pinpoint the suspects and the horrible narrative that led to this tragic event...
SPEAKOUT (471-6636) (01/17/15)
This is to the free government help to the elderly and the handicapped. You need to make a surprise visit to the homes. They are getting the clients to sign the papers and not cleaning the houses or doing what they are supposed to be doing. They need to take a look and find out what is going on...
SPEAKOUT (471-6636) (01/16/15)
Maybe we need to go back to the days when people who had education jobs had to know something. Maybe it was because the made up, no-nonsense subjects didn't take up so much time and money in a person's college years. We need to go to a time when teaching jobs aren't awarded based on how much money your family has or who you are married to or what your husband does or that kind of thing. ...
SPEAKOUT (01/15/15)
That bunch in St. Louis is proposing spending at least $430 million taxpayer dollars on a football stadium. Why should any public money be spent? Do you realize how much tuition could be paid for Missouri children with $430 million? This is what's wrong with this country. The United States is just full of it. There's no future here...
SPEAKOUT (01/14/15)
I just want to say, I guess it's time for the little old gals having babies to apply for their tax refunds. They jump ahead of everybody and they get more than anybody else. They get everything free through the year and old people have to fight for everything they get. ...
Speakout (01/12/15)
Could you please, please, please put in the paper if Laura Wibbenmeyer on KFVS News had a boy or a girl? And why does CVS sell alcohol and not cigarettes? I've called about 15 times. It sounds like from the astounding number of calls we've received from you about Laura that you are a big fan. Kind of surprising that you haven't seen the pictures she's shown of her baby girl. As for CVS, you can reach them at 472-2516. They will have far more information on their policy than SpeakOut...
Speakout (01/10/15)
I would like to speakout about the handicapped plate vehicles and the person stating that the person driving the vehicle didn't look handicapped to him or her. I am a handicapped person. I've worked for 45 years in the nursing industry. My back is so messed up now that I cannot even sit or stand for 15 minutes. ...
Developments show improving economy (01/10/15)
The Sikeston City Council took the final step in approving a new Tax Increment Financing (TIF) district this week which will pave the way for a new Malco multiplex movie theater as well as other highly anticipated development. The TIF district will provide some financing assistance for the multimillion dollar project that will bring a community improvement named as the top missing ingredient here by many people...
SPEAKOUT (01/09/15)
Okay, okay, okay. We have our new no parking signs on North Ingram. Apparently DPS does not realize we have the signs up because people are still parking on North Ingram. Would you please get the police out here to start issuing tickets. I guess they think the signs are just a joke. No parking means no parking...
SPEAKOUT (471-6636) (01/08/15)
This is to the mayor of Morehouse. Would you please check the house out where there is trash all over, torn up lawnmowers, all kinds of old tires, an old recliner setting in the back and see if you can get something done about this junk? I really think we need code enforcement over here if you could reach down into your pocket and hire someone. ...
SPEAKOUT (01/07/15)
In response to the information that was needed for the little white church in Grant City, that church was sold 3 1/2 years ago. I believe if you need info you may speak to the man that lives in the trailer that is parked on the church lot. Thanks for your concern...
SPEAKOUT (471-6636) (01/05/15)
This is to the person that was talking about Obama and his vacations. He better start checking his history books. President Bush took more time off than President Obama ever has. Besides that, Bush was always a president with a pedal. Cheney was actually the president. ...
SPEAKOUT (01/03/15)
For the person wanting alterations done, call 838-8642. That is in Sikeston. My hat is off to the people that had to work in retail stores throughout the Christmas season. They say people really show the holiday spirt, but the ones I saw were giant horses a***s. ...

SPEAKOUT (01/02/15)
I would think it is okay to say this. I read in SpeakOut about women getting off their back and getting a job. Sometimes you do get on your back and become a vice president. That is okay. But when your $50,000 bonus is stepping on the people you've known all your life, charging them overdrafts so you can make more in bonuses, that's more than most people dream of in five years. ...
SPEAKOUT (12/31/14)
I just saw on the news where Missouri is gonna legalize marijuana for medicine and where you can just sit around and smoke it for no reason at all. I wanna know where the idiots that are smoking it for enjoyment are gonna get the money to pay for it? People that smoke medicinal marijuana, I can understand that. But recreational marijuana, that's a crock of bull. Standing around on the street corners and getting high, well, you know they are gonna steal everybody's stuff to pay for it...
