Speakout 6/20

Wednesday, June 20, 2007

I'm just really glad that these hard working Mexicans are in this country to take up the slack for these lazy people who sit on their butts and won't do anything.

To you who called in and said, "Come on over." I just wanted you to know that there are a lot of things that are major in Miner and there needs to be a consolidation with Sikeston, no matter what you say. Regardless of the revenue that comes from Miner businesses, so what if it goes to Sikeston? I've lived in Sikeston for years and years. There has been article after article in SpeakOut about Miner. You know there are more problems than what you want to accept. If you don't lower your pride and face the truth, you've got a real problem. I'm not interested in Miner. Yeah, there are some good restaurants and businesses in Miner, but you know what, you need to come over to Sikeston and enjoy it too.

If there is anyone who would be willing to come sing at our church for a benefit concert could you please put your name and phone number in speak out. The date is Sunday July 8th in the afternoon for a couple hours. Thank you.

To the Miner citizens. Miner citizens owe one particular council person a big thank you for having the foresight to research the facts on every problem or opportunity that may effect our city. We were saved thousands of dollars because of the caring given just recently. Our city could have gone broke if it hadn't been for this one council person. Citizens, we need all of you at the board meetings each month.

I was just wondering why here in Sikeston the city utility workers don't wear safety vests and fluorescent shirts like other utility companies do. I've noticed several times city workers out in the middle of the street doing their job with no safety vests or gear on. I think it would be very wise for these employees to be safe on the roads and have the proper apparel so they can be seen by motorists.

Once again I'm calling about the cab services. We need more cabs so they can be more accurate and efficient, you won't have to wait around twice as long. For two, a new dispatcher so the dispatcher will remember who called and where everybody is going.

This is to the 20-year-old farmer, or whatever. I just wanted him to know that statistics show that nine out of 10 farmers, or people living near farms, have developed some type of cancer. Melanoma, pancreatic cancer, testicular cancer, lung cancer, prostate, breast cancer, etc. Because of the nature of chemicals and stuff they use on their farms they are exposed to it. So in about 15 or 20 years, you won't be so fine.
