Looking Back 7/25

Tuesday, July 25, 2006

SIKESTON - Mr. and Mrs. S.C. White have recently moved to Sikeston from Charleston and are located on Kathleen Street.

DEXTER - The Dexter Housing Authority is considering other cites for the location of low income and elderly living design projects. Howard Chrisman, chairman of the housing board, met with petitioners who presented their views on construction in the Carter and Kinney projects.

BENTON - A total of 14,942 eligible voters have registered in Scott County for the primary election Tuesday, Phil Waldman Jr., county clerk, reported.

SIKESTON - Objections by the Victory Baptist Church to the issuance of a 5 percent package beer license has apparently led Hutter Oil Co. of Sikeston to abandon plans to open a convenience store in the former Shell service station building at East Prairie. The pastor, the Rev. Amos Johnson, and about 50 church members were present at Thursday night's City Council session and heard a statement from Mayor Kevin Mainord that Hutter had elected to relinquish the license and would be practicing a business in Charleston instead of East Prairie. Loss of business also means the loss of some $30-

$50,000 in salaries and taxes for the city.

SIKESTON - Three girls have twirled their way to the top, or more specifically, to the Florida Citrus Bowl in Orlando. Megan Coffer, 12, of Charleston, Casey Robinson, 10, and Crystal Dyer, 14, of Sikeston have been named to the All-

American twirling team. The girls, who recently attended a four-day Marching Auxiliary camp, were taught an All-American routine. On the final day at camp, the three were selected to be on the team.

EAST PRAIRIE - The Sikeston 14-15 year old Babe Ruth All-Star team captured first place at the district tournament in East Prairie and will travel to Jefferson City to compete in the state competition on Friday.
