Do you remember the children’s Sunday school song; “red, brown, yellow, black, and white. They are precious in His site. Jesus loves the little children of the world.” That song best describes the crowd on this last weekend of Hermann’s Oktoberfest. People here where all shapes, sizes, races and origins. I heard four different languages being spoken. Maybe Hermann was a giant German melting pot. It was splendid! This seemed

  • At The River’s Edge: Is disability the country’s new ‘welfare?’

    Posted on October 21, 2014 at 3:34 pm

    Hermann Advertiser-Courier and New Haven Leader Editor Buck Collier

    Not quite 20 years ago, I was Stoddard County’s representative to the Southeast Missouri Private Industry Council, an agency that would later evolve into the Workforce Investment Board. That agency was the result of President Bill Clinton’s successful partnership with the GOP-controlled Congress to reform what we commonly call the welfare program.

    Posted on October 14, 2014 at 2:39 pm

    Ninety minutes into Monday night’s public hearing, the two sides appeared to be clearly drawn — those who favor more guest houses in residential areas and those who don’t.

    Posted on October 7, 2014 at 2:44 pm

    Curtis Thomas of the Hermann Area District Hospital.

    “Should I be concerned about Ebola?” a friend of mine recently asked.  I thought that was a fair question since we now have the first documented case in the United States, so I did some research on the subject with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO).  Here’s what I found out: The Ebola virus is a member of the Filovirus family and
