In late February, Jefferson City revealed it was facing a nearly $1.7 million dollar budget shortfall. Jefferson City Council members Monday voted unanimously in favor of bill 2012-148 which adjusts the city’s 2012-2013 budget.
Republican Sen. Roy Blunt, of Missouri, is threatening to block President Barack Obama's choice for Environmental Protection Agency administrator until plans are resolved for a long-stalled levee project in southeast Missouri.
On April 2, Jefferson City residents will vote on whether to approve a $79 million bond issue that would fund the construction of a new elementary school and a new high school. But, the proposal for a new high school has drawn opposition from some members of the community.
Opponents of the bond issue believe Jefferson City students would be ill served in what they call a “mega high school.” While they want a new high school to be built, they think the existing campus should remain open, making the population at each school smaller.
Just south of Hermann, Mo., Swiss Meat and Sausage Co. processes 2 million pounds of meat a year -- everything from cattle to hogs to buffalo to elk.
And everything gets a label.
“No antibiotics added, raised without added hormones, all natural, minimally processed," Glenn Brandt, the production manager for Swiss Meat, reads from a hefty roll of hickory smoked beef sausage stickers.
What this label does not indicate, however, is whether or not the sausage contains genetically modified organisms, or GMOs.
