Quips of the week by Jack Stapleton

by Jack Stapleton

It was during the John F. Kennedy Jr. tragedy that Americans learned that TV announcements of “breaking news” also means yesterday’s news.

by State Rep. David Klindt

As hundreds of farmers gathered last month to discuss the state of agriculture in Missouri, the governor signed into law some of the most important agriculture legislation in a quarter century. The gathering was hosted by the Family Farm Caucus, a newly organized group of representatives who are working to save the state’s family farms.
