Speakout 6/16

Friday, June 16, 2006

Call 471-6636

I was wanting to know if anybody out there has any gooseberry bushes or knows where any are? If you do, put your number in SpeakOut.

This is on the issue about David Jenkins about the Bullets on the Sikeston team. I'm with you a 100 percent on the Sikeston Bulls. I've been to ball games here and I tell you, they're playing good ball. You don't have to wait in line like you do in St. Louis. Spending $35 for a cheap seat. When the Bulls are not in town, my wife and I go and see the Memphis Redbirds. $9 for a box seat and you see the pros down there. For local fun and something to do besides watch the grass grow, Sikeston Bulls is the thing to do. They're here for two months, unfortunately they'll have to go back to school. But at least we'll have something to do on the weekends instead of listening to everybody crying about there's nothing to do. Cheap fee to get in the gate and you can meet some new people from around the area. That's what me and my wife do. So David Jenkins, I agree with your assessment on the Bullets on the team. I support them all weekend. As Jack Buck says, "That's a winner."

I think that the innocent person that got accused of murder should be let go. If they let one go, they should let them all go. We love them and we are keeping them in our prayers. We would like for them to get out.

This is about the pond on Ingram. My son lived in those apartments for three years. There is no privileges to the backs of people's yards to the fishing. My property line goes to the other side of the fence. From now on, we're keeping no trespassing. My property line goes 100 feet to the front water. The police will be notified and trespassers will be prosecuted. You have no right to fish on people's property. Maybe at the very end at the apartments, which I don't think you do because my son said it wasn't in his contract. When you trespass on my property, you will be arrested. I am a property owner, not a renter. If someone is killed or drowns at the lake, someone is going to have to be held liable. I have already talked to Cowans, he says he has nothing to do with that lake. If someone drowns, who is going to be held liable? There was a man in a boat out there the other day, with his wife and kids with no life jackets. Someone is going to drown out there sooner or later and who is going to be held responsible?

I live next door to the Jehovah Witness Kingdom Hall. As far as I know, only property owners have any right to the pond. If anybody is on my property I will call the police. I don't know what this is all building up to.
