Looking Back in Time at Dec. 29

Monday, December 29, 2003

SIKESTON - Something not generally known is the commendable act of the McDougal brothers, Lee and P.A., who send a check to every church at Christmas to be used for the under privileged children of the city. This charitable act has been done with no public knowledge of the fine deed.

SIKESTON - The congregation of Tanner Street Church of God will be worshiping for the first time in the new sanctuary of the church, although a few incidental parts of the sanctuary decoration are incomplete.

SIKESTON - Motorists had difficulty negotiating a curve on Highway AA south of Sikeston this morning because of the extremely hazardous road conditions.

SIKESTON - A few years ago, Triangle Wire and Cable Inc. management hated to look at their safety records. In 1991, there were 42 lost-time accidents. Safety workshops, conducted twice a month, didn't seem to be helping. Times have changed, and last week, Triangle conducted a drawing for a 1994 Dodge Dakota pickup truck, won by employee Bobby Crozier. Crozier and his fellow employees had their first year of no lost-time accidents and the truck was an incentive to do so. "We didn't have an injury that resulted in a day's worth of lost work," said human resources manager Michael Meyer, explaining Triangle's no lost time policy.

SIKESTON - The good news about this winter's first ice storm is that Sikeston city street crews saw it coming. The bad news is that Mother Nature wasn't as helpful this time.
