I have as much to give thanks for as the Native Americans (not Indians) did when the pilgrims (white man) egotistically sailed over and proceeded to make the natives dependent upon alcohol so as to instill complacency while they raped their women, proceeded to steal their land, and graciously move then unto reservations and profit off casinos. These white men whom stole the native's land, now…

Is it possible that law enforcement receive 'bonus kickbacks' for certain types of arrests or busts, not unlike monetary offerings and vacations given to doctors/psychiatrists by pharmaceuticals reps for pawning off drugs on patients. That type of unethical corruption couldn't really exist?

Soon Darren Wilson will be resigning. Which is likely in the best interest of his safety, not to mention, the respectful thing to do. He may wish to consider complete reconstructive surgery rendering him unrecognizeable ala Casey Anthony. Many targets will likely be painted upon him by remaining embittered prior protestors.

Has anyone seen the Michael Douglas film "Falling Down"? I always felt it sad that William Foster (Douglas) was shot by Martin Prendergrass (Robert Duvall), and not the other way around. All he did was draw a colored water pistol. Anyone could have been able to discern such. The over zealous authoritative ego had to bring him down so that he'd never get to see another of his daughter's…

The number required to do away with sales tax is an additional 15% on top of what we already pay. So it would be 22.75%. http://www.cato.org/publications/commentary/consi... And the universal rebate would make it progressive so it's really not too bad an idea if we can get rid of the IRS in…

Hannibal Boil Order Lifted Early

Hannibal Boil Order Lifted Early

5 months 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.
