Why is it that liberals (and liberal pubs and sites) cannot disagree without being disagreeable? Their commentaries are always full of disrespect, self-righteousness and lame attempts at snotty "humor". Are their proclamations so shallow even they think they need a boost from this type of delivery?

People have done this since we started arresting them centuries ago. The innocent until proven guilty is "in a court of law" -- not public opinion. Otherwise you could never arrest anybody. There may be more people making judgement now due to increased information flow.

Prostitution is a morality law, and it's also wrong. Murder is depriving another person of life. That's not morality, that's a victim of crime. Gambling is a morality law, and it's wrong. Age of Consent laws are to protect minor - potential victims of crimes - who cannot make choices for themselves. That's not a morality law. Just because some laws ALSO follow along with…

And who gets to draw that age line? Are all 18 year olds mature enough to marry? Heck no. Are there some 16 years old that are? Heck yes. An arbitrary age is just that...arbitrary. They've charge under-18 in adult court...what is worse...throwing a < 18 year old in jail for life or letting them marry somebody? Yet the lesser of the two is illegal.

Hannibal Boil Order Lifted Early

Hannibal Boil Order Lifted Early

1 year ago by Scott Hardy

As of 4:20 P.M. Thursday afternoon; still in effect for Ralls Co. WSD #1 customers

 

The Boil Order that was originally extended until 1:00 PM Friday, June 27, 2014 for all Hannibal Board of Public Works customers has been officially lifted early. The Boil Order has ended as of 4:20 P.M. Thursday June 26, 2014. 

 

All bacterial testing came back completely free of contaminants and the chlorine levels are consistently above the required threshold of 0.5 mg per liter. 

 

It is now safe for Hannibal BPW customers to consume and use water as you normally would without boiling beforehand.

 

The Boil Order remains in effect for Public Water Supply District #1 in Ralls County until 1 P.M. Friday, June 27, 2014

The District gets its' water from Hannibal.

The Board of Public Works advises those affected by the Boil Order to do the following:

  1. Boil water vigorously for 3 minutes prior to use for cooking or drinking.
  2. Disinfect food contact surfaces (dishes, cooking utensils, pans, etc.) by immersing them for at least 1 minute in clean tap water that contains one teaspoon of unscented household bleach per gallon of water.
  3. Dispose of ice cubes and remake with water that has been boiled.
  4. Continue boiling all water that is to be used for cooking or drinking until posted time or notified that the boil order has been lifted.
  5. Water used for bathing does not need to be boiled.
  6. Normal precautionary boil orders will be for 48 hours.
  7. Prior to lifting the boil order, the HPBW is required to test for chlorine residuals and bacteria in the affected area.
  8. If test results do not show proper chlorine amounts and no bacteria present, then the boil order will be extended.
  9. Chlorine residual testing only takes a few minutes, while bacteria testing takes 24 hours.

The storm that rolled through on Sunday also knocked out power to a large portion of town and knocked a number of branches as it brought over an inch of rain Sunday afternoon.
