No statewide school bond. St. Louis school officials can get their home school money from St. Louis County. Scott County is already too low on school taxes. If voters approve this school tax for St. Louis, Kansas City would get most of the money. No more taxes for schools.

In a recent Jack Stapleton column, the writer said that Harry Truman once said his only desire was to be a piano player in a whorehouse. The actual situation used to be the saying was Harry Truman played the piano in a whorehouse for two years before he found out what was going on on the second floor.

I am very upset. Every time I call SpeakOut, my ad is not placed. Please place this ad. I am a very mad, upset employee. I was working at a fast-food restaurant for approximately two weeks before they opened. After that, I already knew the manager had hired too many people. He hired 77 people. OK. I was one of those 77 people. He had too many workers anyway. The day before the restaurant opened, I was getting ready to go in to go to work and he met me at the door and told me he found all the workers he needed. I hadn't worked long enough for him to see if I could handle the job. The company may be known for its products, but it is not going to get anywhere. If you don't give the people you hire a chance to work, you will not succeed. I hope your business goes to hell.
