1 Cheers to
state senator Dan Brown, whose legislation on the Eddie Eagle gun safety program  was signed by the governor last week.

2 Cheers to
state representative Rocky Miller. His beach testing bill, signed by Gov. Nixon, will create smarter ways to identify issues at the beaches along the Lake of the Ozarks.

3 Cheers to
organizers of the Morgan County Fair as you continue to prepare for several days of fun.

1 Jeers to
officers caught up in allegations of violating constitutional rights of the accused murderer in the death of Macala Shelton. This case needs resolution quickly so a grieving family and shocked town can gain some closure. Doing things under the radar won’t accomplish that.

2 Jeers to
people who leave their animals in locked vehicles. Now that summer temperatures have arrived, take precautions to keep your pets safe.
