SIKESTON - Four additions have been made recently in the Employment Service headquarters here, Manager Houck Mitchell announces. The Rev. D.D. McAdams, pastor of the Presbyterian Church, has accepted a job as an intermediate employment deputy in the office. Another new staff member is Robert S. Wilson, intermediate deputy, and Mrs. Gladys B. Stewart, formerly of Grabers Store, is serving as an intermediate deputy.

SIKESTON - Two boy scouts from Sikeston will be included in a class of 40 Scouts in the Edwin M. Clark Class of Eagle Scouts, whose members will receive Scouting's highest award to the Eagle Rank. The two are Ronnie Grojean of Troop 146 and John C. Montgomery III of Troop 41.

SIKESTON - The Sikeston Power Station is scheduled to "fire back up" Monday if everything goes right and go back "on-line" Wednesday, according to E.R. "Dick" Inman, director of the Board of Municipal Utilities. The plant went off-line in mid-December due to heavy rains which filled the reservoirs operated by the Southwest Power Association.

SIKESTON - Two popular entertainers will return for the 1993 Kenny Rogers Cerebral Palsy Telethon. Doug Davidson, star of the Emmy-award winning "Young and the Restless" will emcee this year's telethon scheduled for March 13-14 at the Sikeston Field House. This is Davidson's third appearance as the event's master of ceremonies. Making an encore appearance with Davidson will be country music artist Shelly West, who appeared at the 1990 telethon with her mother, Dottie West.
