Will insurance pay if it was owner negligence or if cigarettes started the fire?

Wonder if the fire marshall in town will due his job diligently and find out the culprit in the fire. If its due to cigarette smoking and falling asleep in the bedroom, that's not good.

Asking for money so soon? With insurance and all? And with his public servent position? Why would you be asking for money and not items that you lost?

If you want to donate to Richard and his family you can contact Paula DeSelms and Noble Hudson and Sons feed store on Commercial Street. She has short dark hair and works the counter. She's a cousin to Richard's wife and will make sure they receive all funds.

Elderly diabetic smoker, started in the bedroom, odds are someone was smoking or a child was playing with matches or a lighter, but the fire marshall will find out. Let's hope no favoritism is showed,especially with all the insurance friends.

Wow, what does it mean if your rich, best friend that has used you over and over throws you under the bus, two days after your house burns. It surely speaks of a man's character! Knowit! Shameful.

With friends like this, who needs enemies? All in the name of popularity. This might also be a good reason not to reelect the current sheriff.

"With what I have recently learned about changes in the LSD in last few months have shaken me to the core. I always believed that the Department believed Laclede County came first, but I was wrong. I'm having to re-evaluate where I stand on where I want my Sheriff's office to go in the future, status quo or flush the system. I'll give my opinion when I make up my mind. I don't have much time left to figure it out and react.

I know one thing, if the system gets flushed, a lot of my friends will lose their jobs, but at the same time, people who need to be replaced will get replaced.

I'm really torn between a man who is the best lawman in our part of the State, but who puts to much confidence in certain people to represent him and our county, who shouldn't be in that capacity. Or choose a fresh candidate with a new Department........."

I believe that I read somewhere that it was a CANDLE that started the fire. No cigarettes involved.
