Unfortunately insurance companies and work comp have gotten in the habit of an in and out routine so it's possible that he will be footing part of the medical bills. If he's going to be out of work for an extended period his paid leave will also run out eventually thus his bills beyond the medical realm ?home? ?family? Etc will be hard for him to cover... I'm not any more familiar with his situation than the other readers, just stating possibilities as to why he might need financial help.


Esyle1311 1 year, 8 months ago on Shelter’s feral cat policy, gas chamber criticized

I don't even understand why this is an issue. It's inhumane, cruel, and quite frankly disgusting! How any human being with a heart could condone such an act is beyond me. The one making these descisions when so many are against these horrific acts needs to be removed from a position of power immediately. On another note I would love to hear the opinions of those that are on the advisory board who "advise" the shelter operations. I refuse to believe that they all condone such acts. I know nothing of two of the members however Dr. Popp has been our family vet for years. Having seen his interactions with our animals and reaction to having to put my dog down (humanely through IV injection) after he was severely injured by a car makes me believe, without a doubt, that he would NOT support the use of the gas chamber. I cannot speak for him however the tears in his eyes when he couldn't save our beloved family dog is a good indication that his heart and love of animals is far to large to support this sort of nonsense!

I don't feel like the staff members are to blame, the childcare center failed this boy. There are so many things wrong with what happened beginning with the existence of a gate without a proper latch in the child play area. As stated this occurred on TWO occasions. Of which the child was under the care of two different employees, one would think that the center would have taken protective measures after the first to ensure nothing of the same could possibly happen again. TruthinJC, I'm not sure how the directors side of the story, which does differ from this article, is even relevant. Surely, you are not more apt to believe the words of one who is trying to cover their own hindquarters in the name of money over witnesses, police reports, a 911 operator, and a thorough investigation by state social workers?

I hope the curves on 179 are on the newer portion of that roadway. I've seen more accidents on the stretch from Edgewood to route B than I have on any other roadway! Rain and snow make it feel like your car is skating on a sheet of glass even for the most cautious drivers!

I'm beginning to worry that the justice system has become a bad joke. Am I alone in thinking that 2 years probation and 'child endangerment' charges are far too lenient for a "mother" who abandoned her 4 month old child at a home to be watched by a weasel? Even had the stupid descision not resulted in permanent physical damage to the child the mental damage inflicted should be enough to land her in jail!


Esyle1311 1 year, 10 months ago on Inmate charged with sodomy

So old dude didn't like getting a taste of his own medicine? I'm glad this made news because it gives me hope that karma does exist. I certainly can't feel sorry for a man being sodomised that is imprisoned for doing this and worse to an innocent person/persons seven times.

This made me smile! I didn't realize that someone could be charged or sentenced for asulting police animals. Glad to know that the police and laws look out for the furry friends that protect them!

^I didn't even notice until you posted but the person who wrote this article did indeed change her last name at least 3 times...


Esyle1311 2 years ago on Police: 71-year-old killed girlfriend with bat

I'm outraged that they have a man in custody. He didn't kill her the bat killed her! I agree that outlawing bats is the only way to get justice for this victim and prevent future deaths (sorry baseball/softball players, you must be punished due to another's crazy)


Esyle1311 2 years, 2 months ago on Blair Oaks begins looking at expansion

^Indeed sir or madam. And whilst JCPS are taking notes from Blair Oaks on how to properly expand their school, Blair Oaks can take notes from JCPS on how to properly educate their students in order to enable them to pass Missouri state standardized tests :)
