Speakout 4/7

Wednesday, April 7, 2004

For real or a scam, thanks to whoever put that in the paper about the police scam because I got a letter too about pledging to the police department. Thank you for putting that in the paper.

I am calling about the March 31 SpeakOut about military history. On the National Guard, it was in 1816 that it was officially called the National Guard, not 1916.

There was a classified ad for employment in the Standard Democrat for "Skinny's" in Miner. What is this?

Skinny's will be 24-hour restaurant.

I noticed recently that there have been several school buses named "Dorm School Services." What is this and where are they located?

Dorm School Services is a school bus leasing business. The buses you see in this area is based in Belton and serves Cape, Sikeston, Poplar Bluff and other cities throughout the state of Missouri. The leasing service works for the severely handicapped. The service earned 100 percent on its Missouri State Highway Patrol inspection. Thorough background checks are made on all drivers. The service also assists some public and other state schools in the state when needed.

The Iraqi people cheered and danced in the streets on 9/11 and they did the same March 31, 2004, after they murdered and dismembered the bodies of Americans. They hate us so much; why are we there? Bring our people home. They don't need this. No more Bush - no more Bush. He sent them to hell in Iraq.

Does anyone know where I can get parts for a 1986 Honda 125 4-track 4-wheeler? I'm trying to order parts and they have been discontinued. If anyone can help, please leave a number in SpeakOut.

I was at a car wash on April 1 and the guy who works there came by and smiled. I was having a bad day because I had fallen down and my head was hurting. He smiled and brightened my day. The guy in a white truck helped me untangle the hoses at the car wash. I am thankful for the little things and the angels that God places in my life. I want to thank both of those guys for being so kind.

To the Sikeston Bulldog locker room committee at the VFW Park in Sikeston, why is the number on the building now hidden? Nobody can see the number that was put there. The locker room was built in honor and recognition of a previous Sikeston high school athlete, Brian Price. The American Legion Baseball Committee has retired his number (15), for those who were unaware. It was so nice for those who donated their time and money to complete this project. My parents and I would like to say thank you. Could his number be transferred to the front so it can be seen on the new dugout? I am Brian's brother.
