Local man runs from police in Steelville

A Cook Station man fled from a state trooper in Steelville – leading law enforcement on a foot pursuit across the three-way stop on Main Street and ending behind Spare Rib Inn. Shawn Allen Pitts, 34, has been charged with class E felony resisting an arrest in connection with the May 23 incident.
A Missouri State Highway Patrol trooper wrote the probable cause statement on file in the case against Pitts. In it, the trooper noted he had been traveling south on Highway 19 (Main Street) near the Spare Rib Inn restaurant when he saw Pitts walking on the sidewalk.

A street poet named Devaney

So, what do you think about poetry? Roses are red, violets are blue, sugar is sweet and so is the fudge at the shop on Main Street.
It’s okay to think of rhymes when you think of poetry, and it is more than okay not to. What comes to mind when you think of Steelville’s Art Council? Perhaps Paintings? STARCO stepped out of the box in this merry month of May with the artist in residence Kevin Devaney, or shall we call him the “Poet in Residence”?
