Missouri has no business legislating what a woman can and cannot do with her own body. It seems in most states, men are making the decisions about the female body, without any input from the women themselves.
Letters to the Editor
A few weeks ago I wrote a challenge for a pro-choice person to write this paper to either deny the methods of abortion I listed or justify their use.
As most already know, the opiate epidemic has been worsening, each year claiming more lives than the last. What is less known by the general public is the problem with methamphetamines has been growing over the last several years as well.
Let’s give credit where credit is due. The St. James Chamber of Commerce does not participate in the Kids Fishing Day program. They did at one time, but not any more.
Grasp firm the helm that steers your ship of life,
And sail to leeward on the seas of strife;
Skirt wide the brewing storm and hidden shoal,
For you alone are captain of your soul.
Be friendly with all men if you so yearn,
But choose your friends with caution and concern;
For if a cherished fool should go astray,
You too must stand to face a judgment day.
Be not a fool who argues without cause,
Make clear your statement calmly without pause;
Be patient with the one who orates long,
Deny him not his right to get it wrong.
Hitch not your fortunes to another’s star,
Strive at your pace and be whoe’er you are;
Trail blaze the forest yet to be explored,
And climb the mountain never climbed before.
Embrace the noble cause with fervor grand,
But spend not all your arms in just one stand;
Some battles may be won, some lost by far,
But he who triumphs last doth win the war.
