I don't understand why the mayor wanting his vote on record is a bad thing. Transparency is the new thing for politics, right? Some might want to be slippery and two faced, but statesmanship more than political deception seems like a good thing. Accountability, not plausible deniability, is what voters should expect, as I see it.

This is basically the school board telling Maas, Waterkoette, Schlipmann, and Bleigh Construction that they're a bunch of idiots that can't biuld a damn thing. Schlipmann just build a beautiful dorm for QU, Maas built almost the entire JWCC campus and 1st Bankers Trust building. Waterkoette and Bleigh are more than qualified. I really can't think of a bigger insult to our local…

According to another news source, he has no money, period. A lower bond would do no good because he won't be able to make that. The trial delays are essentially because of lack of funds to pay his attorneys to mount his defense.

That's the thing, PDS. Even though it can seem like a wasteful/rubber-stamp process, the courts are REQUIRED TO assess whether people are fit BEFORE they can stand trial. The process might seem like a waste of money (because yes it seems like a formality when so few defendants are ever deemed "unfit" to stand trial), but it is a basic procedural step -- just like allowing the accused to hire…

I think Lovelace deserves a bond he can make. Took em some 8 years to file charges, why not grant him bond? He ain't no flight risk, where the hell would he go? What's he gonna do, pull an OJ and drive an SUV 10 mph down I-72 with one of his U of I football buddies? For crying out loud give him a bond he can make. And I'm 100% impartial, not in any of the camps, victim or defendant!!

Canton Third Annual Parade of Lights is Dec. 6

2 years, 1 month ago by Bob Gough

Businesses, individuals welcome to participate

Canton, Mo. –This year’s Parade of Lights includes a free children’s movie, bonfire, music, and a visit from Jolly ‘Ole Saint Nick.
Canton’s Third Annual Parade of Lights is Dec. 6 at 6 p.m. But the fun starts an hour early with a short movie for the kids—“Shrek the Halls,” at the Lewis Street Playhouse.
In addition, the 4th Street Warehouse Jazz will have live music at the Canton Public Library beginning at 5 p.m. and continuing after the parade. A free will donation is suggested for the entertainment, with proceeds going toward the Buddy Pack Program.
The library also plays host to Santa that evening. Santa will be in the parade and available to visit with children after the parade at the library. Lewis Street Playhouse will offer concessions.
Any business, organization, or individual participating in the parade can have a motorized vehicle or trailer decorated in a holiday theme, and must have functional lighting. Parade participants are encouraged to hand out candy and other items, but are asked not to throw candy as it is a hazard to children at night.
Parade participants are asked to donate a minimum of $5 or a new unwrapped gift. The gifts will be donated to NECAC, and can be dropped off during business hours at Horner Insurance in downtown Canton. To register, stop by or call Richard Horner’s Shelter Insurance office at 573-288-3734.
All parade floats are to be in line on Second Street behind the school by 5:30 p.m. The parade steps off at the intersection of South Second and Washington streets, proceeds north to Lewis Street, turns west to South Fourth St., south to Montgomery Street, west to South Seventh St., north to Nesmith Street, east to North Sixth St., south to Route 16, east to North Fourth St., and south to Lewis Street, where it ends with a bonfire in Central Park with S’mores and more.
The Canton Chamber of Commerce is sponsoring the children’s movie, and the Canton Kiwanis are sponsoring the music. Up-to-date information can be found at cantonmochamber.com or facebook.com/CantonMOChamber. For more information, call Canton Chamber of Commerce President Mark Fryer at 573-288-8300 or e-mail him at staff@cantonmochamber.com.
