Tuesday, June 10, 2003

SIKESTON - Melvin Myland, who has been employed at Osceola, Ark., has returned to the Sikeston Lumber Co., where he was employed in the past.

NEW MADRID - A geological survey crew is busy in New Madrid County, attempting to find causes of the earthquake which shook this region on April 3.

SIKESTON - The 500,000 gallon, 140-foot-high city water storage tower on North West Street has been getting a new coat of paint for the past four weeks. The crew of the Silman Custom Painting Inc. from Portageville will finish the job this week.

SIKESTON - They came in search of answers. And left empty handed. Public school superintendents from throughout Southeast Missouri met in Cape Girardeau Tuesday in hopes of understanding the supposedly "life-giving" Foundation Formula. The daylong workshop was hosted by the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education. According to the latest figures from the Education Department, Sikeston R-6, Scott City R-1, Chaffee R-2, Scott County Central R-5 and Kelso C-7 will receive no new money for the 1993-94 school year. Also staying stationary are New Madrid and Stoddard County schools. However, these schools will receive no less money than what they received last year.

MINER - The Miner Board of Aldermen brought 12 years of feet-dragging to an end last night, voting to enter into a contract with Bridger Construction Co. to remodel Miner City Hall.

SIKESTON - Carolyn Rannells of Dexter was selected Artist of the Month by the Sikeston Art League.
