SIKESTON - Sikeston City Council members have approved a study which will provide plans for access and parking facilities for the handicapped and elderly in downtown Sikeston. Funds were provided in the 1984 budget and are budgeted though the 1988 capital improvement plan for the work, according to Jack Sargent, director of public works. Modifications of curbs, which would make handicapped access possible, are necessary so Sikeston can comply with the Rehabilitation Act of 1973.

SIKESTON - Like many Americans, 28-year-old Lynda Muench frequently has trouble falling asleep. Wide-eyed, she finds herself tossing and turning all night with numerous things on her mind.
