I don't believe anyone can be dumber than the voters who elected Obama twice.

Obviously you weren't listening closely. I'm paraphrasing here, but when Mary brought up "what if there aren't enough people willing to volunteer," he replied with "then we can look at the budget and consider buying a shuttle to pick up people to take them to vote." Burning down a school where children attended classes and housed many of the special needs students at the time is minor?…

Believe me, Adams County voters are not stupid. However they deserve to be educated. Jeff Scott (Jonathan Shonekase) will not be voted in as long as everyone knows the truth. I'm not sure why Jeffery Scott would think everyone has that short of a memory. Does anyone know of a free shuttle to Mexico? Siberia maybe? Anyone else willing to make a "donation" to send a shuttle to either place?

I am not aware yesqcy is running for any political office so your request isn't valid.

Hannibal Library read from the start

6 months, 2 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."
