There has been lots of chatter about why the investigation began on this again in 2013 and what new evidence can pop up etc. He married his second wife within about a year and a half of the death of Cory. He and his second wife were then divorced in 2013. One article on another news source said the second wife was contacted and said "I can't talk about it." Whether that means she was told by someone…

I can actually think of a few scenarios where malice may not even be an issue, and that would reflect very darkly on the whole situation to the community at large. As darkly as out-and-out murder? I don't know, that would be in the eye of the beholder, I suppose.

Nancy Grace is actually correct on that point. It depends on the state, but in most states you can "premeditate" if you even have a few seconds to contemplate the action before taking it. That's opposed to a pure "heat of the moment" situation where the killer literally doesn't think, just acts. That would get you down to Second Degree murder (I believe)

Once again, I don't like your proposal. Why tie it to the water bill ? Explain why if I take 10 showers a day, I should pay more for garbage service? Furthermore, If you purchace a seperate meter for water, the city cannot make you pay for sewer tax if it is used to water your garden or grass. What makes you think they can charge for garbage pick up if i use a third party? If you can remember…

Hannibal Library read from the start

7 months, 3 weeks ago from Hannibal Library

Based on the conviction that parents are a child's first and most important teachers

Hannibal Free Public Library is delighted to host a program for our parents that has been praised across the state - READ from the START. Presented by the Missouri Humanities Council, READ from the START is based on the conviction that parents are a child's first and most important teachers, and that the love of books and stories begins very early in a child's life.

The energetic and interactive two-session program explores seven great children's books and many reading techniques that parents can use to engage their young children. The parent-only evening uncovers the wonderful world of books and stories through reading, singing, acting, games, crafts and more.  At the conclusion of READ from the START, parents take home the seven titles they have explored during the program for free.

The program will be held on the library's 3rd floor on Monday, January 27th, and Monday, February 3rd, at 6:00 p.m. Light refreshments will be served.

Childcare will be provided in the Children's Room on the 1st floor.  Space is limited; please call the library at 573-221-0222 to register.  Hannibal Free Public Library is located at 200 South 5th Street in Hannibal.

Organizations across Missouri have called READ from the START innovative, valuable and transformational.

"The families were totally engaged in the RFTS program.  I heard families speak about how much they had learned.  They were very excited about RFTS."
~Early Head Start, Sedalia

"The facilitator's presentation was EXCELLENT!  Teens were genuinely interested in the educational and entertaining aspects of this program." 
~Truman Medical Center Start Right Teen Program, Kansas City

"This was a great experience for the teens.  It was a joy for me to watch the interaction of the teens with the facilitator.  It appeared that they were learning a lot on how to read to their babies.  They were also very excited to get the books.  Obviously they would never be able to afford such a library on their own at this point in their lives."

~ Parents as Teachers/Manual Career & Technical Center

"Parents love the interactivity, especially being read to by someone." 

~Ferguson-Florissant Parents as Teachers, Ferguson

"Parents love the laughter and animation of the presenter, and like to share their own experiences."
