Washington Continues to Discuss the Possibility of Extending its Boundaries

The city of Washington continues to discuss the possibility of extending its boundaries. Officials are hearing comments on both sides of the annexation issue. The administration committee gathered on Monday November 26, 2012 to talk about the annexation of land to the east, south, and west of the existing city limits. Much of it is agricultural ground and Mayor Sandy Lucy says that some citizens have expressed concerns about hunting rights in some of those areas. Mayor Lucy says she has looked at ordnance currently on the books in Wildwood which has a lot of incorporated open space. Another concern centered around fireworks stands and whether they will be aloud. Lucy says officials are looking into that issue as well. More meetings are planned. The earliest annexation proposal could go before voters in August.

If you want to get someone's attention, whisper. That old investment brokerage ad is the opposite of what is going on regarding shootings in Ferguson and Tower Grove. When people threaten violence or blankly label one as a racist, it's very hard to listen. The same holds true for those who sum up the plight of impoverished black communities as "that's how those people are."

The St. Louis Cardinals are exercising the 2015 option on pitcher John Lackey. The 36-year-old right-hander will earn the league minimum 500-thousand-dollars after making 15.25-million each of the last three seasons. Lackey was acquired from Boston at the trade deadline and his contract had a clause allowing for a league-minimum option after missing the entire 2012 season due to elbow surgery.
