  • 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. Then we all try our best to reckon with reality. And what a devastating reality Robin Williams’ death reveals - that someone who, by his very nature, brought

  • POPLAR BLUFF - Joni Mitchell wrote a song called “Big Yellow Taxi” back in 1970. The lyrics poke fun at the absurdity of a civilization where we “paved paradise and put up a parking lot.” Since then, a lot of people have taken up the cause of trees because we really don’t want to have to pay to see them in a tree museum. Through much environmental education we’ve learned that trees are vital to the survival of our planet. If trees don’t survive, neither do humans. Also see "From The Publishers Desk (11/06/2014)" In Missouri, trees are center stage this time of year, putting on a color show that beats anything an artist can paint. Even Poplar Bluff recently

  • POPLAR BLUFF - Monday night’s meeting of the Poplar Bluff City Council was largely a house-keeping session, other than an announcement at the end of the meeting by City Manager Heath Kaplan that he intends to begin publication of a newsletter from his office in order to get accurate information to the people of Poplar Bluff. He said the purpose of the newsletter will be to “line out all the information regarding financial decisions” he has made, addressing each of the issues raised in a recent editorial published by the Daily American Republic. “There are 11 items that I will address that were concerns of the DAR. I hope they will also publish this information,” said Kaplan. If not, he

  • SEMO TIMES Editorial - also see our news coverage regading the Health Insurance selection and our Publisher's take on the local Rust-owned daily newspaper's reporting. Here’s a survey question for you: Do you support and encourage parents taking their child to the doctor if a broken bone is protruding from their arm or leg? It’s a question with only one legitimate answer. Late last week, Poplar Bluff Chamber President Steve Halter informed city council that the chamber was going to survey its members to “gauge the level of support…on the ‘shop local’ issue.” The survey question posed to its members by the chamber reads: Do you support City of Poplar Bluff Ordinance No. 7476 §1, 2-3-2014 http://ecode360.com/29105589  and encourage organizations such as our

  • POPLAR BLUFF – When Kaplan came on board on August 18, he was faced with the city’s self-funded health insurance nearing a $3,000,000 deficit. His first step in getting out of such a huge hole was to find a health insurance consultant. A request for bids was sent out. The city received two qualified bids for insurance consultants. The low bid of $68,000 was submitted by First Community Insurance of Poplar Bluff. A bid of $85,000 was submitted by AON, an international company. To evaluate the two bids, a committee comprised of seven employees from different departments within the city was formed. Committee members included Deputy Chief Jeff Rolland as chairman along with Steven Burkhead, Gail Barriner, Chris DeGaris, Jason

  • We sat down with Heath Kaplan in the council chambers at city hall at 8:30 on Friday morning, September 19th, after his first 30 days on the job as Poplar Bluff’s new city manager. During our hour and a half interview, Kaplan was forthright, knowledgeable and assertive. There wasn’t any issue we touched upon that he didn’t have a well thought out answer for. One cannot help but be impressed by his passion and drive. Kaplan’s now a Poplar Bluffian and talks as though this is his hometown now. Given you’ve been on the job 30 days now, what are your impressions of Poplar Bluff? I’ve been very pleased with the city. There is no shortage of individuals here who
