Last week, Justin Alferman presented HB 213 to the Utility Commission of the Missouri House of Representatives.  This bill would require the state auditor to perform an audit of the MoPep and MJMEUC systems in the state of Missouri.  This hearing afforded citizens the opportunity to testify before the commission.  Alderman Brian Chorley, Utility Advisory Board member Terry Hammer and the Mayor traveled to Jefferson City to testify in favor

    Baby its cold outside! And snowy. And windy. I’m writing this Monday in hopes that we are almost done with this nasty weather for a while. Put on your big-girl panties, Cathi. It is winter. This is the last week of soup recipes. Between 3 pages of soup recipes, you should have something tasty to eat in the cold. Congrats to Carol Starke for winning the contest! Carol, we forgot

    There is a piece of legislation in the Missouri Hosue of Representatives that, I think, really needs to be taken up and approved. But, alas, I fear it will go the way of so many other pieces of truly beneficial legislation — cast aside in order to spend time on such meaningful issues as the official state fruit or the official state musical instrument or designating jumping jacks as the

    The question of the swimming pool opening or not opening this year is still up in the air.  We have received some inquiries on the open positions, but as of this moment we have not been able to fill any of the required positions.  If we do not have the positions filled and the training completed we will not be able to open the pool.  The drop-dead date for the

    In listening to Gov. Jay Nixon’s State of the State message last week to a joint session of the Missouri General Assembly, I was struck by a portion of his speech about a concern that has become all too common for Missouri governors . . . of both parties. The need for the Show-Me State to protect the water of the Missouri River. Not just protect in the sense of

  • At The River’s Edge: Alferman wins a plum assignment

    Hermann’s Justin Alferman is the envy of many Missouri state legislators — veterans and freshmen alike. The 61st District state representative was assigned a seat on the all-important House Budget Committee, one of only three freshmen among the 19 members named to the panel. There are veteran House members who can’t get a seat at that exclusive table, so to be a freshman named to the committee that has first

    I saw Kevin “soup” Stiers last week and he reminded me that January was his month. What? His birthday? No, January is traditionally the month we eat soup, so he has adopted it as his own. I rolled my eyes. Happy MONTH, Soup. Speaking of soup, have you entered the “best soup” contest? We have several entries so far. After the contest we will print all the recipes. If you
