John Danforth, former Missouri senator and a former U.S. Ambassador, was in Sikeston early today to meet with several local officials and residents. Danforth expressed concerns about the direction of the nation, in particularly the rising U.S. debt. He noted with the continued rise in entitlement programs, these costs could soon consume the entire U.S. budget. Pictured from left are Linda Steward, Danforth and John Sillman, Danforth's grandson.
