This is a follow up on all the problems with getting public information concerning the Tourism Tax expenditures and commission appointments from city hall and also to commend our city council for insisting on the information and a new commission monitored by them, with the people serving according to all state statutes and city ordinances.
Letters to the Editor
The COVID-19 pandemic has caused abrupt changes in the lives of most everyone. The inability to see our friends and family, a strong desire to return to what we knew as normalcy, and an unease with the unknown have been common feelings throughout our community.
This article is not meant to scare you, but as the United States, and the world, are fighting a very serious pandemic, here is some food for thought. I first want to say that we are not all going to imminently die because of this pandemic and that all hope is lost. This is not the case. However, whether we’re in a pandemic or not, it is of the utmost importance to make a vital decision for your future.
As we navigate the current crisis let's not forget that the census opened on April 1. Missouri has a response rate of only 54.2 percent. Crawford County has a response rate of only 42.8 percent.
I would like to say I appreciate all the doctors, nurses, first responders, law enforcers, postal workers, sanitation workers who are always right on duty no matter pouring rain, sleet or snow and heat.
