Letter to the Editor

To the editor:

I, on behalf of the Elks Lodge #1001, would like to thank the Boy Scouts of Troop 309 for the excellent service they gave on the Flag Retirement Ceremony. The Ceremony was very impressive and done with much dignity.

This used to be a private ceremony so I had never seen it before and glad I was there to observe it.

Thank you Boy Scouts for partaking in our Flag Day Ceremony.

Carol Smedlund

    Like all Missouri RESIDENTS, I want to see more jobs created in my state. That’s why I was disappointed to learn that Senator McCaskill hasn’t supported S. 1114 yet. It’s a bill that would help American manufacturers and workers fight back against currency manipulation, one of the biggest reasons the U.S. runs a huge trade deficit each year. In the last year alone, it was $456 billion. Currency manipulation is a big deal. Other countries rig their exchange rates to make the goods they sell cheaper and America’s more expensive. One recent study found that we could create 116,800 jobs in Missouri in three years. It’s hard to create good-paying jobs when we’re shipping all of our wealth overseas. Missouri needs Senator McCaskill to support S. 1114, so we can start keeping our wealth and our jobs here at home.
