Back to school ‘21 Jump Street’ takes a stale premise and makes it fresh and funny

As an adult, there are times when you look back on your high school career and think about how you could have done things differently. But mostly you think about how much you hated it.

Company performs energy audit for LCHD

When looking at ways to save money on utilities, the Laclede County Board of Trustees suggested that it might be time for an energy audit. That audit has been completed and overall, the building is in pretty good shape, according to Administrator Charla Baker.

She contacted the city of Lebanon, which has a list of companies that perform energy audits. Quality Heating & Air was chosen because they are familiar with the building, Baker said.

If you’re going to suffer a vehicle breakdown, don’t do it on the entrance ramp to Mo. 65 from the James River Freeway in Springfield. Don’t do it on a dark, cold and rainy night, either.

Don’t ask me how I learned these lessons I am now passing on to you. I just know, OK?

Did you hear any cussin’ at church today? If so, some legislators want you to be able to call the cops if it happens again.

People who disturb worship services with curse words or rude actions could land in jail under legislation endorsed by the Missouri Senate.

The bill given initial approval Wednesday would make it a misdemeanor to intentionally disturb or interrupt a “house of worship” with profane language, rude or indecent behavior or noise that breaks the solemnity of the service.
