Research still points to New Madrid quakes (06/14/10)
I believe many Midwestern newspaper editors blindly trusted the Associated Press and got taken by a recent AP story that said scientists are beginning to doubt that the New Madrid fault caused several large earthquakes in 1811-1812.

Speak Out 6/14/10 (06/14/10)
THOSE who are angry that a group is trying to get another vote on the casino issue need to realize that this group is only treating the issue the way it was approached to begin with. Remember, we voted down a casino. Those in favor pushed another vote through. Now, years later when opinions may have changed again, those against are applying the principle of "what's fair for the goose is fair for the gander."...
