      **EDITORIAL** Waynesville isn’t Ferguson; we must not act that way
      WAYNESVILLE, Mo. (Oct. 26, 2015) — Following a weekend of social media uproar, it’s likely most people who pay attention to Waynesville sports, and also many who live in Camdenton, know at least something about what happened Friday at the Waynesville-Camdenton football game. Many facts are in dispute. What’s not in dispute is that a young woman who is a member of the Waynesville High School band, and whose mother happens to be from an ethnic minority group, wrote a letter to the Camdenton High School principal objecting to the conduct of a number of Camdenton fans. The key sentence is this: “Many students (and adults) representing your school chose this time to scream rude comments, obscenities, and racial slurs.” A question needs to be asked to those who criticize Rachel Slabaugh: Whatever did or did not happen on Friday, comments on social media have made clear this kind of conduct has been happening for years. Her letter got something done. Has anything else worked that anyone else has tried? These problems are not new, and sometimes strong action is needed. What Ferguson showed America is that regardless of what did or did not happen with a specific incident, too many members of minority groups have silently put up with racial bigotry and abuse, not just for years but for decades, and get very angry when a new incident blows up — not so much because of the new incident but because of a long history of prior problems which they perceived didn’t get properly addressed. Thanks to social media, incidents which years ago would have been known only to dozens or hundreds of people are now known to thousands or tens of thousands, and once they go public, the new reports can and sometimes do unleash massive amounts of pent-up resentment over racial bigotry. Click here to read more on Pulaski County Daily News ...

      Commissioners hoping for FEMA reimbursement soon
      PULASKI COUNTY, Mo. (Oct. 26, 2015) — Sheriff Ron Long’s threat of a libel lawsuit against those making online claims he was arrested for drunk driving wasn’t the only item handed by county commissioners Monday morning. Commissioner Ricky Zweerink said he’s received notification that 21 roads and road portions damaged by the August 2013 flood have been approved by FEMA Federal Emergency Management Agency officials for payment of $300,000 to $400,000 in his Western District. In the Eastern District, Commissioner Lynn Sharp said he expected a smaller amount of work in the Big Piney area to the southeast of U.S. Army Fort Leonard Wood to be on the approval list.  Click here to read more on Pulaski County Daily News ...

      Krill to health department staff: 'You must take vacations, not cash'
      PULASKI COUNTY, Mo. (Oct. 26, 2015) — A member of the county health board said Monday that he believes health department employees should be forced to take vacation time rather than being allowed to cash out their excess leave time. Board member Joe Krill said continuing to allow employees to cash out their leave will cost the district about $10,000 as an annual benefit, and while the board is showing a surplus this year, it would be the first time in half a decade for the district to show a surplus. "If we keep handing out candy and the candy jar gets empty, somebody's got to fill it, and it's not fair to the taxpayers in this case,” Krill said.  Click here to read more on Pulaski County Daily News ...

      Commissioners concerned about employee health insurance costs
      PULASKI COUNTY, Mo. (Oct. 15, 2015) — County Commissioners continue to be concerned over insurance plans and how the county can avoid facing federal fines for not providing adequate insurance. At a previous commission meeting, the commissioners learned that under the rules of the Affordable Care Act, more commonly known as Obamacare, employers the size of Pulaski County with between 50 and 100 employees will soon have to provide insurance to employees which is considered “affordable” to those employees. “They're just looking for a way to fine you,” said Presiding Commissioner Gene Newkirk.  Click here to read more on Pulaski County Daily News ...

      Waynesville debates who can remove city police chief if needed
      WAYNESVILLE, Mo. (Oct. 15, 2015) — Police Chief Dan Cordova now has an indefinite appointment to head the Waynesville Police Department and won’t have to be reappointed for two-year terms, but questions on how he should be removed if needed caused concern for at least two councilmen at Thursday night’s Waynesville City Council meeting. Councilman Mike France asked why the new ordinance says the city administrator, rather than the full city council, has the authority to remove the police chief. While emphasizing that he “wouldn’t arbitrarily fire anyone for no legitimate reason,” City Administrator Bruce Harrill said supervision of city staff and department heads is part of his job. “If something happened you may not always have the occasion to pull a meeting together. There are provisions to appeal,” Harrill said. “If you wanted to overrule that decision, I wouldn’t do something unwise, I could even suspend him.” Click here to read more on Pulaski County Daily News ...

      McCaskill responds to latest indictments on Army National Guard recruiting case
      WASHINGTON, D.C. (Oct. 23, 2015) — U.S. Senator Claire McCaskill, the top-ranking Democrat on the Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations, today released the following statement after the Justice Department’s announcement that it has indicted an additional 25 current and former Guard officials on charges of conspiracy, fraud, and aggravated identity theft in the Guard’s Recruiting Assistance Program, previously found to be a vehicle for massive fraud and waste. “The massive fraud in this program was a deep betrayal of the public’s trust that dishonored the service of so many brave members of the National Guard. In one of the largest criminal investigations in its history, the Army and the Department of Justice continue working to bring to justice those who used the Guard uniform to defraud taxpayers. I’ll look forward to seeing these criminals punished for exploiting this system to the tune of millions of taxpayer dollars.” Click here to read more on Pulaski County Daily News ...
