The race card gets pulled out when the liberals don't have any logical arguments left in their bag. They are saying "I can't win this debate with facts so I will assault your character". It is an attempt to win by intimidation. Very sad.

It was specifically stated at the public forum at St. Peter's that the project would not exceed $89 million. They even mentioned that if the architects were to come to them later and say it would, they would have to rework the plan.

I wish I could just hit a big lotto jackpot and pay for it out of my own darn pocket. I am not saying that our school rankings are necessarily all because of the facilities, but the environments do affect overall performance. One of the most important factors in community growth is schools. This is largely because it is one of the first things that parents look at before moving to an area. Our schools…

Didn't Hannibal just put in a new school or two? I can't find the story on planned vs. spent, but I don't hear a lot of hollering about cost overruns, etc. I just remember the story with the open house to show off their new, state-of-art facility.

I still think that there is no way they can guarantee that this project is only going to be $89M. Take a look to the North to another huge government sponsored building at Ft. Madison Prison. Years late and 10's of millions in cost over run. There is simply no way that they can promise this won't cost a penny more than $89M and what happens when it does (and it will by a minimum of 15%)?…

McCaskill says she intends to "Slow down the EPA" on coal

The U S EPA is conducting a hearing in Chicago to hear comments on its latest proposed rule regulating green-house gasses

The U S EPA is conducting a hearing in Chicago to hear comments on its latest proposed rule regulating green-house gasses. Critics of the rule say it would effectively ban construction of coal fired generators all across the United States.

Missouri U.S. Senator Claire McCaskill says that may be an overstatement for effect - but she says she and other members of congress are working to corral the EPA.

"I know that there is a good healthy number of us moderates that are going to hold the line on the EPA, in terms of how reasonable they are as it related to the coal related regulations," McCaskill said.  "And I know we've got a strong bipartisan cooperation in that regard and we will continue to do that."

McCaskill was a cosponsor of legislation that is "intended to slow down the EPA as it relates to some of these issues." She says she opposed Cap and Trade because it would have been too harmful to many small businesses and families on fixed incomes in Missouri which is largely coal dependent. Senator McCaskill was speaking to reporters during her regular conference call from Washington.
