A multi pupose "Sports Complex"...do it right, don't cut corner's, don't build in the city limits because there is no room. This place should meet the needs of various sporting events, so IMHO it would be smart to build in an area that affords a large complex and parking accomodations for the crowd. Don't build another YMCA, this building...Sport's Complex needs to be more than just a gym. You do this and then you'll start attracting the crowds that could possibly justify your Convention Center. Building the Convention Cener first isn't the best thing to do.....let's move forward, but let's do it the right way.
Said it when I first heard this horse manure.....there's only ONE thing J & J is concerned about and it's MONEY!!!!! If this were not the case as the J & J boss says...then why hasn't his company offered their services in any of the current war zones. I mean that little Afghan Girl would have loved to have been protected by these "big tough and seriously dedicated to the safety of children" J & J Security professionals.. Perhaps their prressence would have convinced the person(s) who shot her in the head to go elsewhere looking for innocent victims. Noooooo these J & J fella's wanna corner the market here in good ole Jeff City. I know we have some issues here, but we haven't gotten that bad. Also I don't get how J & J can say with a straight face I might add....that putting more police officer's in the schools isn't cost effective...but hiring their security officer's to do the same thing the Cops would be doing fit's right into the tax payer's budget. Please explain how that works!!!!
Let the Cops handle this problem....I'm all for creating jobs, but not like this...again let the cops handle school security
Thi is a bit much don'tcha think...especially since the Principle from TJMS didn't even get to see the inside of court room for chasing her boyfriend down the street with a knife. I agree Ms. Rutherford was wrong...but when Politicians are having open fist fights in the state Capital...in the front of visiting school students...yet these combatants don't get so mucha as a slap on the wrist....yet this lady get 4yrs in prison for pushing her way to visit with her child. Okay...yes she was wrong for getting physical...but not four years in prison wrong. Unless this is the new standrd for punishing uncalled for violence and applies to everyone...I say give the lady some cousnselling, probation and some community service...certainly no more than some days in the County Jail...but not prison.. save that for the really deserving folks.

The Academy deal is good if you want your students to concentrate their educational focus as if they were going to attend a "Technical College"...it does not help them as much as if they were going to attend a traditional "ACADEMIC" University/College. The proof. is easy to see...just looka ta what Linn State Tecnhnical School does and what the University of Rolla does...both educate Aad prepaRe students...but we all know there is a big difference in the focus of these two very worhtwhile but different institutions.
Why not build two high schools and stop trying to save the DARN JC FOOTBALL PROGRAM. If you have to......build a Vo-Tech High School and then build a traditional Academic High School. But the truth is this...the Academy deal is geared toward Vo-Tech not Academic success.
Per capita this is Jeff City...home of nothing happening...but mud runs, a raft trips. Sure the bigger cities...the Lou, KC, Springfield have their share of gun violence, but nothing like Chi-town, Camden, NYC, Miami, Hotlanta a many other's...so why does person in Caruthersville need an AR-15 again? Why does someone in Fulton need a Glock handgun with a 20 round clip? Why does someone in Hallsville need a M2 again? Dude you can own a gun, but all we're (the President included is asking for is sensible laws to hep protect us all. Would it help knowing that the Vice President is asking for the same thing? Perhaps it might be easier to accept the proposal knowing that a white guy agree's with this same common sense approach to gun laws?
Paroquet...please fill us in on the "Paul Harvey"....it don't matter who they are...if they ain't doing the job right...the people need to know...so helps us out.
Yeah I did my bit too. Glad we both made it out alive...but what I don't understand is why you can't see the President isn't forcing his will, he's only trying to help. None of what he is asking for can happen unless Congress approves it....no large capacity mags, no assault weapons, mandatory back ground checks, somehow I don't see that as violating the Constitution. He's actually calling for more Police Officer's to help patrol the schools, So tel mel how that BS NRA add about him being an elitist hypocrit is true. He's calling to get more properly trained securiry for schools, how does the NRA figure he wants his kids protected more than the normal kid? My point is this...the man is trying to help stop anymore shootings... the NRA and few other's are trying to turn this into "the black guy want's to take away our gun's" issue...and buddy that's a crock of Pooh!
Look if ya don't like the guy then just say...but don't hide behind some misguided, fake, irrational idea of him violating your Consitutional right....cause nothing could be further from the truth
And how many of you " gotta have my assault rifle so I can maintain a well regultaed militia" types are suiting up for military service right now...cause contrary to popular belief...foklks we got a few shootin wars that have been going on for over ten years now and quite frankly the folks that have been dealing with this stuff are burned out and need a break. So if your reeeeeeally into that regulated militia stuff....Uncle Sam needs you now, so come sign on the dotted line and we can have you in War Zone "regulating your militia" real fast. I gurantee we can have you in a fire fight sooner than you expected. Come on dont't be afraid...or is all MACHISMO you spoutin a bunch a talk!!!!!! I mean here's a real chance to do all the Militia regulating you keep shoutin about!!! Come on step forward...I'm sure there's a military person that would gladly swap places with you right now......they'd also be glad to obide by the President's directives and you could take their place in the war zone regulating your milita. What do say...do we have adeal?
