Speakout 6/17

Sunday, June 17, 2007

This is in regards to the article talking about Madam President. Just sit back and enjoy the ride. Hillary will be the next president in 2008 and I will be the first one to vote for her.

On Saturday, Sept. 29, the Sikeston High School Class of 1987 will hold its 20-year reunion at the Sikeston Country Club. At this time we are trying to locate and notify all classmates. If you are a class of '87 or know someone who is, please provide contact information to sikeston87@yahoo.com or 472-0746.

I'm calling about the thefts of copper and aluminum. If the scrap dealers that receive large amounts of these would get the license plate number or the driver license number of the person bringing it in, they could probably catch some of the thieves, if they're not fencing it themselves. As far as the problem in Iraq that we're suffering in the Middle East, the United States is suffering the death of a 1,000 cuts. They are slowly cutting us down each day. Pretty soon we're going to bleed until we have none left.

Just thought I would put this information out there to help my community. I was surfing around ebay and noticed that there is a Sikeston Bulldog cheerleading uniform on there starting at $40 with free shipping/delivery if you live here in town.

Just an answer to the crop duster about my personal life. No, I don't smoke, I don't drink, but I do like to breathe good, clean air. And as far as the unemployment rate, I'd say it wouldn't raise the unemployment rate if everyone of you decided to go out of business. And as far as the harvest and food supply, you could use the tractors as most farmers have done for years and still do.

To the 10-year-old girl on the blue team that was playing at the game on June 7, you did an excellent job. To the parents who yelled out the rude comments to the red team, my advice for you is to spend your time and energy coaching your girls team and maybe they will win a game next year.

I am a traumatic brain injury survivor and I was wanting to meet others in Sikeston or around this area that would be interested in going to the meetings that have once a month in Cape Girardeau since I can't go by myself. If there is anyone that is a TBI survivor that is interested, please put your number in SpeakOut and I'll get in touch with you.
