My view: Rediger for mayor (03/31/10)
For the last 16 years Cape Girardeau has had the benefit of a strong city council led by mayors Al Spradling III and Jay Knudtson. A good mayor helps make Cape Girardeau a better city.

Thirty-five million Americans use illegal drugs. Just think: If it were legalized and taxed, how much we could put toward the deficit?...
