1 Cheers to
everyone who participated in Small Business Saturday and supported the Lake of the Ozarks economy.

2 Cheers to
the School of the Osage for collecting more than 4,000 food goods to go to local charitable agencies.

3 Cheers to
the Laurie Board of Aldermen for addressing road safety concerns in the city and organizing to fix the worst road spots.

1 Jeers to
whoever set two homes ablaze in Sunrise Beach over the weekend. Not only are you a criminal, but to do such a horrible thing as Christmas approaches shows just how low you are.

2 Jeers to
the people that used Black Friday and extreme materialism to justify harming others. As we’ve heard year in and year out, people were injured, trampled and fought over sales at retail stores.
