CBS Morning News, I was wondering what happened with Renee Syler is she on assignment or did she stop working on the Early Show? Thank you for your response.

According to CBS, Syler left the Early Morning Show at the end of the year to pursue other interests, including writing a book.

This is to the caller who was making the comment on the Charleston-

Sikeston basketball game. They stated that Charleston had broken Scott Central's state title record. Unless they know something that I don't, Charleston I believe has nine state titles and Scott Central has 12. Plus they have four titles for the girls. Sixteen total. I believe it was 22 trips to the Final Four. I know that Ron Cookson is probably one of the greatest coaches to grace the sidelines of Southeast Missouri and maybe, even the state, and the team has struggled since he retired. But things are looking bright for Scott Central and I truly believe they are on their way back to the dynasty stature. The kids continue to be hungry. Interim coach Ron Cookson has done a spectacular job. It makes all of us smile to see him there barking orders and getting the kids to play better than they are. Coach Heeb is ready to take the reins back and steer the program back to basketball glory. Keep up the good work guys. I truly believe that No. 13 and beyond is not far away.

This is in regard to the caller of the comment that was posted on Jan. 13 in Speakout. The caller had stated that Charleston had beaten Scott Central's record for most state championships. I would like to inform them that we are still two up on them and they need to check their facts before they speak their mind. We do appreciate them saying that Scott Central is cream of the crop in Southeast Missouri. We have been down the last few years but we are certainly working on that.

This is for the idiot who complained about using an ATM card to get a cash discount. That is why it is a cash discount, it is not an ATM discount or a credit card discount or check. Cash to me and to millions of other people in this world means cash. If you have a problem go somewhere else like you said you were going to because there is no reason to complain and moan about a cash discount when you are using your ATM card.
