I agree with the caller on “Don’t barge in” about the barges to St. Joseph and making all the improvements to the port. It’s a good thing to think about it from a neutral perspective, to have somebody look at how much income is really going to be produced. And, also consider that it’s going to certainly make the St. Joseph riverfront even uglier and more industrialized than it is. And whether for long term planning, wouldn’t it be a better idea to beautify our riverfront, especially if that highway is going to be taken out?
I read this morning in today’s paper where the curriculum teachers’ salaries were approved. I am still wondering when the extra duty contracts for our teachers are going to be approved. Some of these teachers already have been working without a contract for a week now without a contract for example, high school coaches and band teachers. I sure hope they get those done before school starts.
Editor’s note: According to the school board’s meeting minutes, extra duty assignments and salary schedule were approved at its June 22 meeting.
Paint it, Nixon
Since St. Joseph is honoring past presidents who passed through St. Joseph before they were presidents, then I would suggest that the next mural feature President Nixon, who was the vice president at the time when he stopped in St. Joseph. Also, he was a much better president than Abraham Lincoln.
Paint it, Nixon
Nixon is fine, but Reagan would be better. But because I think these choices will only lead to more in fighting and bickering, I offer an alternative.
The man for whom I lobby was one of America’s great actors. He played John the Baptist and in case anyone says, “Well, that is too Protestant,” I would answer and say, “How about Moses?” He was truly a man for all seasons except maybe if you are Egyptian. But when the man I have in mind played Raymond “Ben” Hur, he raced chariots for a man who would truly have been on friendly terms with Egyptians. And this man even played Andy Jackson, a US president whose term came some time between the time of the American Revolution and the War Between the States He was even the great Spanish speaking hero El Cid. Among his artistic talents, he played Michelangelo the Renaissance man in the Agony and the Exstasy. He has played kings such as Henry VIII and even played God in the movies. And to top it off, he was the President of an organization that rivals the US military in terms of firepower.
Therefore, why not include Charlton Heston on the mural? There it is.
Or to help pay for all of the murals, why not have the fans vote for a small fee with cash jars set up at convenient stores?
Just do it in such a way that corrupt local political machines like the schools or teacher unions or even the news media cannot get their hands on the money. And make sure that the money does go to police vehicles or football jerseys but only to the murals or fixing the roads.
Paint it, Nixon not a major issue one way or the other as far as I am concerned, but I don’t know that the fact that someone “passed through” the area is significant enough to quantify their depiction on a mural of the city’s history.
There is no law which saying it is mandatory that someone “famous” or “infamous” needs to be on a mural. I don’t cite fact. Actually folks in several Chinese cities said the same thing. Now yesterday it was a headline in the WSJ. 12 The second episode in a new documentary web series highlights a young woman’s eyewitness narrative of the daily practice of fetal body parts harvesting in Planned Parenthood abortion clinics, describing tissue procurement workers’ coordination with abortion providers, the pressure placed on patients, and disregard for patient consent. The “Human Capital” documentary web series, produced by The Center for Medical Progress, integrates expert interviews, eyewitness accounts, and real life undercover interactions to explore various themes connected to Planned Parenthood’s sale of aborted fetal tissue. Episode 1, “Planned Parenthood’s Black Market in Baby Parts,” premiered last month. As a procurement tech, O’Donnell’s job was to identify pregnant patients matching the specifications of StemExpress customers and to harvest the fetal body parts from their abortions. “It’s not an option, it’s a demand,” StemExpress supervisors instructed O’Donnell about approaching pregnant women at Planned Parenthood for fetal tissue “donations.” O’Donnell says the StemExpress techs working in Planned Parenthood clinics sometimes harvested fetal parts without obtaining consent from the patients: “If there was a higher gestation, and the technicians needed it, there were times when they would just take what they wanted. And these mothers don’t know. 289g 1). According to O’Donnell, Planned Parenthood gave StemExpress workers access to patient records and schedules so that the harvesting company could plan for the days when patient “supply” would be greatest. “They give you a sheet, and it’s everybody for that day, who’s coming in for an ultrasound, who’s coming in for an abortion, medical or a late term abortion,” O’Donnell explains. Even patients just seeking a pregnancy test at Planned Parenthood were considered part of the supply: “Pregnancy tests are potential pregnancies, therefore potential specimens. So it’s just taking advantage of the opportunities.” Project Lead David Daleiden notes, “Experiences like Holly O’Donnell’s show that Planned Parenthood’s abortion and baby parts business is not a safe place where vulnerable women can be cared for, but a harvesting ground for saleable human ‘product.’ Taxpayer subsidies to Planned Parenthood’s barbaric abortion business should be revoked immediately, and law enforcement and other elected officials must act decisively to determine the full extent of Planned Parenthood’s offensive practices and hold them accountable to the law.”
Missouri Senate committee hearing to focus on resumption of abortions in Columbia.
The state Senate will hold a hearing tomorrow as part of its investigation of whether Planned Parenthood is breaking any laws in Missouri, and some of its attention will be on Columbia.
The newly formed Senate Committee on the Sanctity of Life will hear from the Department of Health and Senior Services about the resumption of abortions at the Planned Parenthood facility in Columbia.
Co Chairman David Sater (R Cassville) says he and other Republicans want to ask questions about the permit process, “to make sure that it was done according to the rules and regulations of the Department of Health. It seemed to us as though it happened awfully quick.”
Sater says the committee will also investigate whether the illegal sale of fetal tissue was taking place in Missouri, as some allege Planned Parenthood has done in other states.
“We will be asking the Department of Health and Senior Services what their take is on it, and what kind of investigation that they’re going to be doing on this.”.
