The Missouri Public Service (PSC) staff helps the commissioners determine whether or not to grant utilities a certificate allowing them to construct high-voltage power lines. For nearly five years the Texas based company Grain Belt Express has been attempting to gain access to eminent domain...
I would like to say just how proud I am with our new President . . . Like I said I would like too, but I can't. I will admit I did skip his ingratiation, some might imply that I boycotted it but honest I have never gone or watched any of them, but I do like the sound of “I boycotted the event,”...
