According to Doug Bagby, City Manager of Poplar Bluff, MO, “roughly 2,900 signatures” are needed to place the Open Access Petition on the ballot. Mr. Bagby further commented that “If you do acquire the correct number of signatures…the City Council will abide by the ‘letter of the law’ and the ‘spirit of the law’ and honor the vote of the public whichever way it turns out.”
A grassroots effort is underway to secure 3,000 Poplar Bluff registered voter signatures in 60 days, dubbed “3k60”.
This week, the Open Access petition was mailed to over 8,000 Poplar Bluff registered voters in wards 1-5 utilizing the United States Postal Service’s “Every Door Direct Mail” service with the help of Minit Print.
Supporters of 3k60 urge recipients of the petition to “Sign It–Stamp It–Send It” to the Open Access Petition Headquarters, or hand-deliver it to any of a number of locations including Adkins Chiropractic, The Bread Co., The Wine Rack / Java Stop, and SEMO.net.
3k60 wants to remind voters that this is a petition for the people of Poplar Bluff. Signing the petition will help bring internet competition back to Poplar Bluff; competition that drives down prices and boosts internet speeds. Open Access places the choice of service back into the hands of the taxpayers who paid for the broadband network.
The US Chamber of Commerce responded recently about Open Access of Government-owned networks that they, “support open-access requirements on publicly-funded systems…and would argue that localities should not be able to drive out private-sector providers.”
Brian Becker, owner of SEMO.net and a national advocate for Open Access for over a decade stated, “Open Access is about Choice. Because the citizens of this great city paid to have their homes connected to the Information Super-Highway, they should have the right to connect to their provider of choice.”
This petition puts that power of choice in the Poplar Bluff voters’ hands.

Presented by Kiwanis Club – Poplar Bluff MO and Kiwanis network of school aged children enrolled in Key Club, Builders Club, K Club and other eager volunteers – ALL hoping to survive the nightmares of Kinyon School. Poplar Bluff is coming at you in full force with the science, the urban legends, the slight of hand and of course monsters of all shapes and sizes.
Come join us for a month of weekends filled with ever-changing Spookiliciousness. And we do mean ever changing. Come one week and have fun. Come the next week, get your mind blown by how different it is now. Come another time and you’ll start to doubt your own ability to remember what is real and what isn’t. This school doesn’t teach anything anymore. ITS LEARNING FROM YOUR FEAR AND ITS GETTING BETTER AND BETTER AT SHOWING YOU WHAT SCARES YOU MOST!
If you’re in school and want to participate – you must be a registered member of one of the Kiwanis groups this fall through the The Boys & Girls Club of Poplar Bluff called The Builders Club and K-Kids. High School students must be a member of Key Club. There will be lots of opportunities to be mentored as we build and design and promote this huge event opening the first weekend in October.
Watch for casting calls this summer for key players in the Haunted scenes. Lots of great ideas and warped “out of the box” thinking going on these days. We are all starting to feel a little mutant.
We’ll stay in touch. Even when you don’t know we’re there, heh heh – we’ll be there – silent but deadly!
