• It seems nearly impossible to fathom that someone as brilliant and funny as Robin Williams could be so tortured emotionally that he takes himself out of the human race. Yet, last week, one by one, each of us across the whole globe, fixed our attention on the sad news of this beloved actor’s suicide. Sometimes, a blip of news in the vast sea of information we are bombarded with daily, seems to slap us so hard in the face that we can almost hear the collective groan rippling through space and time.

  • [Paid Advertisement] No matter whether you love wine or you are on the fence about it, the Wine Rack has the perfect answer for you: a wine tasting. This Wednesday evening from 5pm - 9pm you can sample three different wines for $8. Wine tastings are a great way for you and friends to discover new favorites and better understand the differences between a Cabernet and a Shiraz, a Chardonnay and a Riesling (the specific wine-types and vintner-brands have not been selected for the tasting). You can come to sample the wines only, or along with a lovely meal from their recently revised menu. See you at the Wine Rack!

  • 77% of the voters of Ward 1 voted for Angela Pearson, I don't have access to past victory counts but no one I spoke to can remember a bigger victory in Poplar Bluff's Ward 1 history. The people have spoken and sent a CLEAR message to City Council - we are tired of yes-men and yes-women. The City Manager is an employee...IF he's to stay employed then he needs to start acting as such. Angela ran an amazing campaign and she deserves great praise for the well deserved victory. In the past two years, our city has elected two independent, principled people to sit on City Council: Johnny Brannum and, now, Angela Pearson.
