Look for them — Motorcycle Awareness Month

About 40 bikers made their point for road safety in Gallatin last Saturday morning.

Members of Freedome of the Road Riders orchestrated a 200-mile tour in proclaiming the month of May as “Motorcycle Awareness Month.” The bikers requested proclamations from the mayors of each town where stops were made — Cameron, Maysville, Gallatin, Pattonsburg, Bethany, Albany, Stanberry, and King City — before ending their tour at St. Joseph Harley.

War In Iraq Has Left Missouri Vulnerable

by Josh Lansdale

By now it should be news to no one that four years of war in Iraq have left

our men and women in uniform overstretched and under-equipped. But, a recent

report says that 88 percent of National Guard units are now "not ready" to

respond to unforeseen foreign and domestic crises.

According to the Commission on the National Guard and Reserves report, units

MOFB’s “Cut to the Chase”: It doesn’t take a crystal ball

by Denny Banister

When America was in its formative years, the young nation’s economic strength was generated by agriculture, which grew even stronger with the settlement of the west.

The Industrial Revolution quickly changed cities from trading centers and suppliers for farmers, to heavily-populated, factory-filled metropolises where jobs were plentiful. Good pay in the city was enticing to those who wanted to give up the hard life of farming in

Family Daze: Garage sale season – one man’s junk is another man’s treasure

by Debbie Farmer

From the Mayor’s Desk:

The Coonridge Digest: Not a matter of politics

by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from the Ridge.

The folks at Pew Research Institute released a pretty depressing study last week.

Despite our access to 24-hour news, the study found that only 69% of U.S. citizens can name the Vice President of the United States, only three out of four knew that the Democrats now controlled Congress, and that a paltry one in three realized that the chief justice of

Post Scripts: Tricky polls – clear as mud

by Joe Snyder

What do U.S. voters think of the war in Iraq, now the longest war in U.S. history?

In an Associated Press poll taken recently, over half of respondents said they believe the undeclared war in Iraq a "hopeless cause." Compare that to a poll taken last month by a professional survey group, 56 percent of which indicated they believe finishing the job in Iraq is a "hopeless
