2 Cheers to
the graduates of Macks Creek and Eldon High School who celebrated commencement this past weekend. Congratulations on moving into the next part of your lives.

the Camdenton Post Office, which collected 5,000 pounds of food Monday.

1 Jeers to
the scene at a Morgan County property where dozens of animals were kept in horrible conditions, malnourished and uncared for. If you choose to own an animal, accept ALL of the responsibilities for caring for the them.

2 Jeers to
the Missouri legislature for sending to voters an amendment that would “strengthen the right to bear arms.” Um, that’s already a right we have. Why not spend time on Missouri’s real problems like job generation and the Medicare gap in the state?
