This is about the tiny home article. You might inform your reporters that the area in question is not outside the city limits. Just because they’re over the railroad tracks doesn’t mean they’re outside the city of St. Joseph. It is well within the city limits of St. Joseph.
Yesterday I noticed on the soccer fields along Riverside Road in St. Joe, there were large groups of people gathered watching children play soccer, yet large groups of people aren’t allowed to watch baseball games or any other activity.

Editor’s note: Those soccer fields are not city-owned facilities.

I was watching “Good Morning America,” they’re sitting there saying the state of Missouri is a hot zone; the virus is growing here dramatically.

I was just curious if anybody happened to see what happened to the speed limit sign on U.S. Highway 36 between 27th and 28th streets. Seems it’s gone. Oh, that’s right — it’s covered with grass! At least 6 feet of grass. Come on, state, get the grass cut.
I see they’re removing two statues of Christopher Columbus in Chicago. What did he do that offended anybody, other than discover our great land of America?
Two big ones
I don’t understand how people who are so gung-ho on the Second Amendment so cheerfully ignore the First Amendment, which is the right to protest peacefully. How can you choose one amendment over the other? It doesn’t make sense.
