Letters to the Editor

Letter to the Editor: If the health insurance bill currently before the U.S. Senate passes, cuts in Medicaid could cause rural hospitals all over the country to close. One adverse result of this I have heard neither Democrats nor Republicans mention. Closure of these hospitals would result in...
Rules? Ordinances! We don’t need no stinking rules and ordinances. Wrong! I am getting a little tired of all the bellyaching from a vocal minority here in kidder. We do have to remain aware of the possibility of a council person using their position improperly, but the fact is that the rules apply...
There’s a fight going on within the confines of Kidder, Missouri. This same fight goes on in countless bergs and towns across the nation. A loose definition of what this local government is calling, “ordinances.” They are basically designed to regulate how a person can live or operate in this case...
I found it rather interesting this week when I made my almost daily trip from Kingston to Hamilton that the Medthodist church parking lot was filled to the brim and over flowing on Tuesday May 23.  I thought at first that it must be a huge wedding or funeral, and when I stopped two women on the...

They have targeted a family owned business that has been around since 1983. Council has threatened others to take them to court if they don’t put up a...
Fellow Americans, In my article, Another Poke in the Eye, I criticized President Obama for his appeasement of the tyrannical dictators of Russia, Iran, North Korea, and China. Obama talked tough but never acted. Sadly, the world knew it. Consider the following: ·  Obama did nothing to stop Russia...
At the Kidder Aldermen Board Meeting on 13 April 2017 the City Alderman reached a NEW LEVEL of INCOMPETENCE. After MONTHS of complaining and demanding that something be done about her truck driving neighbor, Alderwoman Chris Bratcher got exactly what she wanted by banning all semi tractors and...
Representative Jim Neely standing up to protect our rights
