Bonds stays stuck on 69 homers (10/01/01)

Speak out 10/1 (10/01/01)
YES, IT is wonderful that SEMO has grown so rapidly. More students only means more money for the university to use for improvements and more money entering our local economy.

Without these amenities, growth eventually will reach a standstill...
