Speakout 8/18

Friday, August 18, 2006

I need some help and clarification. I was speaking with a mother whose child attends Richland School District and she informed me that she and her family live in Morehouse but they had been attending Richland Schools for quite sometime and apparently someone is now making them go to Sikeston Public Schools. About 70 students that have formerly attended Richland have now enrolled in Sikeston Public Schools. I was just wondering, I don't understand, I'm fairly new to the area, but I do know that Morehouse is in New Madrid County. How do they draw the school district lines here? If you could clarify this I would appreciate it.

District lines were established by the state in the mid 40's. Morehouse approved a vote around 1968 to become part of the Sikeston R-6 School District.

I'm watching the new terrorist alert and we are not allowed to carry any liquids on the planes anymore. My question is, maybe someone can tell us and I know they haven't worked all the bumps out yet, but are they gonna start getting our luggage where it's supposed to be on time? People can't afford to go out and buy contact solution, contact cleaner, all the new make up, conditioners, shampoos. That's why you take it along, you can't afford to buy it when you go on a trip somewhere. My other question is would they allow you to carry on your contact solution and cleaner and everything if the seal was unbroken? If it's store sealed? I don't know how many times I've flown and I always carry my contact solution, glasses, shampoo, conditioner and stuff as a carry on because of the fact that they are always losing luggage and you never know when you are going to see it again.

According to American Airlines Agent Charlie Casey no liquids, gels, aerosols or hairsprays or allowed. Exceptions are baby formula, prescription medicine that matches the name on the passenger ticket and diabetic insulin (but no more than 8 oz. per container). A complete listing of allowable carry on items is available at www.fsa.gov.

This is in regards to the first annual 5K Rodeo Run. It was a great success, but if you want to include the little children and make them pay an entry fee, then you should also include them in giving medals. They worked just as hard as the adults and didn't receive any recognition.

Is there someone out there that fixes the overhead upholstery in your vehicle? I would appreciate if you would leave your number. I need mine redone.

I would like to speak out about people around you. People think that angels just come from Heaven but there are people that do good deeds and people don't get thanked for what they have done. I would like to thank Aunt Carolyn, Harry, Miss Bradley and Mr. Bradley in my time of need and sickness. They did special things like calling and seeing if anything could be done or if they could take us anywhere or do anything they could for us. People like that need to prayed for and patted on the back sometimes. We love you and we will pray for you.
