I worked for a large JAB in KC and it was only a matter of time. The original franchise was set up with JAB and since they were sold to MW in 2014 it is a new ballgame. There are less than 10 franchises and they will be gone when they make ownership changes. MW is all about the bottom line and there will be changes to any stores that don't make it. They recently changed a JAB factory outlet…

Why would the FAA fine them for a self-reported incident? That would really put the kink in self-reporting.

It was an advertising campaign so they went to advertising and travel agencies. And don't confuse non-profits with charities. Blessing is non-profit and they do quite well in the $$ department. And while you could argue charities might be able to use them it wouldn't serve the marketing purpose.

The ironic part is, even they may not be immune to the type of random lawlessness and danger they are creating by these moves. But they'll never understand or believe that. Meanwhile, the common citizen lives in a deteriorating warzone and feels less safe every day. Life in Obama's New Order......

If details aren't available, they can't publish them. No news agency likes speculation. But to satisfy your need, how about: The two victims were trying to hit on his girl friend, who lived next door, and he came to her defense. Will that work for you?

Jason Smith gets Missouri 8th District GOP nod for Congress

2 years, 4 months ago by Bob Gough

The Eighth Congressional District includes Cape Girardeau and leans heavily Republican

VAN BUREN — State Rep. Jason Smith won the GOP nomination for the Eight Congressional Districton Saturday, when local Republicans held a nominating meeting to select their candidate to replace U.S. Rep. Jo Ann Emerson.

During a committee meeting, 86 voting members narrowed the field of 10 candidates down to Smith in six rounds of voting. Smith, a Salem Republican who serves as Speaker Pro Tem in the Missouri House, led in votes throughout the morning.

“This is a lot for a country boy from Dent County,” Smith said after taking the stage for the first time as the nominee. Holding back tears, Smith said he would fight to win the seat in the upcoming special election because he wants all of the members “to be proud of who your congressman is.”

Lt. Gov. Peter Kinder and former State Sen. Jason Crowell made it to the final round with Smith, but neither gained more than 20 votes throughout the process. Lloyd Smith, former executive director of the Missouri Republican Party, withdrew his name after the fifth ballot.

The unique nature of the process allowed Smith and the other candidates to meet individually with voters ahead of the nominating meeting. Smith said he put more than 10,000 miles on his car traveling throughout the district, and was able to speak individually with members throughout the process.

During his remarks, Smith fought back tears when lauding the other candidates in the race.

“They all represented themselves with class. I couldn’t have been with a better group of people,” he said.

The Eight Congressional District leans heavily Republican, which could make Smith’s selection tantamount to election.Democrats will soon select a candidate for the June 4 special election.

Emerson resigned earlier this year to serve as CEO of the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association.
