Does anyone in this area know where I can buy liquid embroidery? Please leave the information in SpeakOut. I know it's being sold somewhere, but I can't find it.

I need to complain about a member of a certain club in Sikeston. My husband and I like to go there for a drink after working all day and talk to friends, which you can't do because of one belligerent loud-mouth who thinks everyone wants to hear about her. I can tell you how many times she has been married and how much she makes a year, which really irritates me. She treats the barmaids, as if they're subhuman. I understand she was reported. Let's see how far it goes. Anyone else would have been barred. I know I would have been if I cursed like a sailor the way she does. Thank God I was raised to treat people the way I want to be treated. Too bad not everyone was. I feel for the men she married because they were not allowed to wear the pants in the family.

I am calling about a convenience store on the west end of West Malone. You go to spend your money in there and can't even get a decent, "How are you doing?" or "Hello" or anything. We, the public, deserve a "Good morning" or "Good afternoon" or something because we are the ones who have to make your business to be as successful as it is. A little kindness never hurt anybody.

I read in the Standard where representatives of mental facilities could lose jobs. Hmmm. Don't you know mentally sick people live in a prison of their own? Why don't they get our sick folks out of the prisons and into mental health programs, where they can get relief? What we need are prison and courthouse cuts. The courts don't believe in the truth. Some of our mentally ill are much more honest and are treated like they are nobody. What a shame. Most of the time it's the accusers. Stand up, Southeast Missouri, for our mentally ill and let them live as normal as possible.

Does any store in Sikeston or the surrounding area carry Anmar perfume items? If you know where I can buy some, please put the information in SpeakOut.
