Telephone customers who receive discounted service through either the Lifeline or Disabled programs will see the amount of that discount increase under a decision by the Missouri Public Service Commission.
I cant complain about the weather this week. No matter how cold it is, if the sun shines it feels so much better. The winds blew pretty bad, making things feel cooler Sunday and we got a few snow flakes. We can be thankful we didn’t have the snow storms that stretched from northern California to the upper middle portion of the country and then to the eastern states. It said 2/3 of the country had some form of severe weather. In the south flood waters swept away a vehicle. 3 small children were among the missing. The little boys bodies were recovered and the search was still on for the little girl. Weather forecasters always say when you see water on the road, turn around, don’t drown. My kids are grown, but I know how I’d grieve if one of them drowned much less three.

Thanksgiving is always a good time to reflect on the year and think about what we’re grateful for. Missouri has faced more challenges than usual this year. We have seen historic flooding, severe storms and tornadoes that have all had devastating effects on our communities. In the wake of these difficult circumstances, I’m so grateful for the people who have come together in the Third District. In light of the upcoming movie, Mr. Rogers had a great quote about times like these ? when he saw scary things in the news as a child, his mother would tell him “look for the helpers, you will always find people who are helping.” This is exactly what we saw here in Missouri over this past year. Yes, we have weathered our fair share of storms ? both figuratively and literally ? but it has been especially heartwarming to witness the “helpers” of all sorts who have come out to offer assistance and rebuild.
