I live in Morehouse and would like to know why Morehouse doesn't have a dog catcher. There's an old red dog running around here that is eating up cats and trying to attack children and the police or nobody here acts like they could care less. What in the world is wrong with people to let this go on? Are they just going to wait until the dog bites one of the kids before they do anything? Morehouse, you need to do something.

We suggest you attend the next city council or board of aldermen meeting and voice your concerns. Your city hall can give you the date, time and location of the next meeting.

I would like to thank Dr. Poole and Dr. Roberts in Sikeston for saving my mentally retarded daughter's life. It's been awhile now, but if it hadn't been for them performing a practically miraculous surgery, my daughter would be dead now. They are very good doctors and I appreciate them so much. Keep up the good work. You're good for Sikeston.

How come some people in Morehouse have to tear down old buildings and clean up while other people get by with not having to tear down their houses. What is the difference in the people and the houses that they have to tear down? What is good for one is good for all. There's an old house down here on Levee Street, right on the corner, where a murder was committed. The building has a no trespassing sign on it. We'd like to see that eyesore torn down in Morehouse. How about it?

This is in answer to the person who called Mike Jensen a racist. I think the person who called is in one of those I call "butt-check people." They sit on their butt and draw a check. They never worked but they sure do gripe about people who do work. I think this caller is just a butt-check person.

I would like to let people know who is picking up the trash and garbage after the rodeo is over. It's the little angels from the Community Sheltered Workshop in Sikeston. They get out there and pick up everybody's trash and paper and the people of the rodeo. So when you start to throw down papers, trash and soda bottles, think of those little angels from the Community Sheltered Workshop having to get out there working, practically for nothing, picking up everybody's trash. Please. And I know God will bless you.
