Missouri’s weather forecast indicates snow and snow showers are expected. For part of the state, this could be the first snow of the season. Whether it’s a dusting or several inches, it can affect travel. Be sure to increase your following distance as you drive; stopping quickly on wet, snowy, or icy roads can be hazardous or impossible. Be aware that elevated roadways such as bridges and ramps may freeze faster, and a roadway that appears wet could be icy. Leaving at least five seconds between your vehicle and the one in front of you is always a smart idea, especially in inclement weather. During 2022 there were 51 people killed and 1,969 people injured in more than 7,500 crashes with weather conditions of snow, sleet/hail, or freezing. more

Hello, everybody. Name is Cyrus. Cool name, right? I didn’t pick it out myself, but I’m grateful for the people who did. They definitely knew what they were doing. It’s a perfect name for a doberman pinscher and labrador retriever mix like me. more

What happens to the town of Stockton when items left on the porch of the Stockton Area Ministerial Alliance (SAMA) are taken? The community loses. SAMA is staffed with volunteers who work hours and hours sorting and pricing items. They lift heavy furniture; they sort clothing; they organize and separate. All work is volunteer; each year, thousands of dollars go back into the Stockton community in several ways. Yet, some people who could get a tremendous bargain from walking inside the store and paying a pittance of what it is worth never get that opportunity. And an incalculable amount of money does not go back into the community. Why? Because others have stolen it. more

Did you know that your child can walk or drive to several places in Cedar County and pick up a chemical compound derived from hemp that, as one online store advertises, is capable of "getting you stoned out of your mind?" And the product is available online in Missouri if someone doesn't want to travel. The THC product is referred to as Delta 8 (marijuana has a Delta 9 compound.) It is derived from hemp, the same plant species as marijuana, but not regulated in Missouri. Many teenagers are familiar with it. Although some brick-and-mortar stores, such as gas stations and vape stores, have self-imposed an age limit to selling Delta 8, a child of any age can legally purchase it in Missouri. Yet, it is banned in 17 states and severely restricted in seven others. Delta 8 contains THC, the same chemical that creates the marijuana high, and is sold as gummies, cookies, and candy, and is used in vapes or can be smoked. more
