Poplar Bluff businessman Doug Libla filed yesterday to run for the 25th State Senatorial District as a Republican. As a result of term limits, the seat will not have an incumbent on the ballot in August. The 25th State Senate District as proposed in the most recent apportionment consists of Butler, Carter, Dunklin, Mississippi, New Madrid, Pemiscot, Shannon and Stoddard counties. Libla, 59, is a rural conservative who is 100% Pro-Life, Pro-Second Amendment, Pro-Agriculture, and is a steadfast believer in limited government. He is not a professional politician; this is the first time he has run for elected office.

They were concerned by the way the article read that we had lost another decision. I laughed and informed them that though the paper didn't report it as such, we actually won that hearing.Feb 28,
