SIKESTON - This has been a quiet week at the Heritage House since we were closed two days for the holidays. Carolyn Burchett has been named craftroom supervisor. She has some wonderful ideas for crafts and we anticipate great things from our craftroom this coming year.

SIKESTON - Ira Spencer Jr. wondered what he could have done wrong when Sikeston police came to his house last week. "The police came by here and knocked on my door. I said, 'Oh, no.

He and three other winners won $14,800 Super Sunday packages, which include a trip for two to the upcoming SuperBowl in Pasadena, Calif., and $10,000 in spending money.
