Let's review the past few months/years in Lincoln County shall we?

Two young men killed by a Sheriff's Deputy during a traffic stop.

Drug overdose bodies found in the Cuivre River State Park and other areas.

High unemployment for the past couple of years. By higher I mean higher than surrounding areas.

TDD and TIF turned down in Troy.

Multiple fatal accidents along Highways 61 and 47.

Increase population and decreased tax base.

No opportunities for young people, other than FFA. Not all of us raise chickens.

No public library system.

"Gay" couple attacked in Silex. Front page of STL Post-Dispatch.

Bus service for many students being discountinued in R-III Schools.
As seen on all 3 area TV news casts.

Now tell me. Can you honestly say that we do not have a problem in this county? Can you honestly say that the current leaders we have are up to the task of holding their positions? Can you honestly say this county has good PR?

Lincoln County, we have a problem..........

Yes, there is a problem. Not unlike a few years ago when Jefferson County was the laughing stock of MO. Now it's Lincoln County. What do you expect from a place that takes pride in the "Little Dixie Highway"? What idiot got that passed by the legislature? You forgot to add all the stories about the KKK and the absence of diversity in the populace. Hmmmmm now gay bashing. No wonder....I'll bet the historical society celebrates the date that Union troops left town!

Well, since you know so much about the problems in Lincoln County, do you also have solutions? Would you like to move here and solve the problems? It takes an idiot to complain, it takes a real person to find a solution. Which is what our local government is trying to do. Anyone can complain about the way things are. It is those that actually try to change things that should be commended, not condemned.
