Rosebud officials willing to fight in court to keep jail out of city

     Last night, the Rosebud city council politely listened to Gasconade County Sheriff Randy Esphorst try to gain the support of Rosebud leadership for a jail in a former school building in Rosebud. 
     Then Mayor Shannon Grus sternly articulated her opposition to the sheriff's proposal to build a 20- to 30-bed county jail in space that would be shared with the county's 911 Board.  
      The Rosebud City attorney stated that Rosebud didn't want the jail and implied the city would fight the sheriff in court if necessary.

S. Callaway makes district football race interesting
     South Callaway, a football program that started 10 years ago, dealt perennial power Blair Oaks a setback when it defeated the Falcons, 7-6, last Friday in a Class 2, District game at Wardsville.   Blair Oaks travels to Hermann this Friday night. The favored Falcons are in a must   win situation to keep their hopes alive for a 10th straight district football championship. The game at Hermann starts at 7 p.m.    If Hermann prevails on Friday and South Callaway wins at home against Montgomery County, then there will be a showdown the following week when the   Bulldogs visit Hermann in the final district game.    South Callaway is off to its best start in school history. A week before upsetting the state-ranked Falcons, the Bulldogs (7-1) suffered their first loss to Tipton, the No. 2 ranked team in Class 1.
 Hermann Faces Blair Oaks here Friday.

Prop B would enact tougher dog-breeding regulations

Proposition B, known as the "Puppy Mill Cruelty Prevention Act," would limit breeders to no more than 50 breeding dogs. The animals would have to have food, water, veterinary care, space for exercising and protection from the elements. Animals could not be kept in stacked cages with wire for floors.
The requirements also say dogs must have access to indoor space assuring temperatures of between 45 and 85 degrees Fahrenheit. Dogs also must have sufficient space to move.

Some members of agricultural organizations believe Proposition B is the first assault on the farmer's ability to raise livestock. 
Some groups, like the Missouri Veterinary Medical Association, said adequate dog-breeding laws are on the books now. They say the problem has been enforcement as well as the proliferation of unlicensed dog breeders who operate outside the law.Click Here for more

Saturday's Oktoberfest crowd estimate: 30,000 plus


Saturday's Octoberfest crowd reaches 30,000
     In what resembled an Octoberfest of the 1980s and 1990s, last Saturday's crowd may have topped 30,000, according to Hermann's police chief.    "It was without a doubt, the biggest crowd I've seen in the nearly eight years that I have been here," said Frank Tennant, chief of police. "I've never seen traffic backed up like it was Saturday; all the way from the middle of town to the Loutre Market grocery store."    Tennant put the crowd at 30,000, surpassing the esti   mated 20,000 the previous Saturday.    "This was a typical third weekend crowd--25ish in age," he said. "There were a lot of younger people, where the week before, they were a little older."    The police chief said approximately 65 buses were directed to the Gutenberg Street parking area, and a dozen or more could have been at Stone Hill Winery.    Tennant said if there isn't a football game at the University of Missouri, and the weather is as pleasant   as it was last Saturday, you're going to see large numbers of younger people in Hermann.    He said everything became gridlocked before noon Saturday as vehicles started arriving, looking for parking places.    As far as problems, Tennant said officers issued two DWIs this past Saturday, and in some years as many as 15 have been issued on one day.    "We really didn't have that many situations where we arrested people," Tennant said. "We had sev   eral people ticketed for public urination and open containers, but the severity of problems were worse the previous Saturday."    Two persons from Cole County, one from Jefferson City and one from Eugene, were arrested and charged with property damage after breaking a window at the White House Hotel. They will have a court date in a few weeks.    A.J. Plummer, owner of the historic building on Wharf Street, said his staff        Saturday, when late in the day two young men were looking for a place to urinate in the alley-way of the hotel. When they were noticed by staff and asked to leave, they threw a rock, breaking a 141-year-old window pane, according to Plummer.    Tennant said he has had a lot of problems with open containers, but 99 percent of the people dump their alcohol when told to do so by officers.    "We give them a chance to get rid of the alcohol when they're on the streets, but when they ignore us and   keep on walking, they get a summons," he said.    Tennant said he continues to remind bars and business owners who sell alcohol that they should do a little "policing" of their own, and tell patrons not to walk out of a business with alcoholic drinks. "We can't do this by ourself," said Tennant.    The open container violations did not upset Tennant as much as other things he saw last Saturday. It's the urination in public and property damage that he won't tolerate.    "It irritates me to no end   when they urinate in somebody's yard, dump over flower pots or pull signs off walls," he said. "I don't understand adults doing little petty things. They're not respecting our town, and people should not have to put up with that."    Tennant also said he has officers specifically looking for drunk drivers late in the day when guests start leaving town.    "We are going to do everything to get them off the road, so they don't hurt themselves or someone else," he said. "Any least thing we see in their driving, we are going to pull them over to make sure they are not intoxicated."    Tennant said he had 25 officers working over the weekend. During the month of October, he budgets $30,000 for extra police officers, all of whom are certified law enforcement officers from other Missouri cities.

Gov't: No increase for Social Security next year

More than 58 million retirees and disabled Americans will get no increase in Social Security benefits next year, the second year in a row without a raise.
The Social Security Administration said Friday inflation has been too low since the last increase in 2009 to warrant an increase for 2011. The announcement marks only the second year without an increase since automatic adjustments for inflation were adopted in 1975. The first year was this year.

Stakes are high for Mizzou when it plays Oklahoma

A victory over unbeaten OU would conceivably shoot the unbeaten Tigers right up the human and computer polls. A victory before a sold-out homecoming crowd of over 68,000 gold-clad Mizzou loyalists would put them back in the Top 10 for the first time in two years, and legitimately put them in the heart of the national championship debate and at the very least in the thick of the big-payday BCS bowl game consideration.Click Here for more
