1 Cheers to
Eldon’s Sara Rhine for taking first in the high jump at the Missouri Relays.

2 Cheers to
staff at Hurricane Deck Elementary, who successfully led an emergency training drill. While we hope you never have to use these skills, it’s comforting to know you’re being proactive about safety.

3 Cheers to
the city of Osage Beach for protecting workers by taking the steps towards collective bargaining.

1 Jeers to
the secrecy surrounding the Camelot Special Road District in the upcoming election. While we think road districts are beneficial, deceptive practices shouldn’t be rewarded with a ‘yes’ vote.

2 Jeers to
Punxsutawney Phil for lying about an early spring. Really? Snow in late March. We’re sick of winter. Plus, the unseasonal weather has delayed the start of the all-important tourist season.
