JEFFERSON CITY The
Missouri Senate demonstrated its commitment to
securing federal stimulus money for programs to
benefit Missourians when Senate Leader Charlie
Shields, R-St. Joseph, today announced the
creation of a special committee. The Senate
Select Committee on Oversight of Federal Stimulus
Plan will hold its first meeting this Wednesday,
January 28, in Senate Committee Room 1 at 2 p.m.
Shields named Sen. Scott T.
Rupp, R-Wentzville, as chair and Sen. Rita Heard
Days, D-St. Louis, as vice-chair. The committee
has invited Governor Jay Nixon, Lieutenant
Governor Peter Kinder, and all members of
Missouris Congressional delegation to speak
before the committee to share information and
strategies for securing Missouris fair
share of the anticipated nearly $1 trillion
federal stimulus plan.
Shields said he created the
committee so the Legislature can act quickly to
adopt state laws that may currently hinder the
states ability to gain preference to
receive grants through the federal plan.
"We want to make sure
Missourians get their federal tax dollars
invested back into programs and jobs that can
improve our daily lives, rather than going to pay
for our neighboring states," he said.
"The Obama administration has made it clear
they will award the funding to states that can
invest in and complete projects quickly and, as
lawmakers, we must be ready to adopt laws and
policies to make sure Missourians get their fair
share of federal tax dollars being reinvested in
Shields said the Senate will
also work with the National Conference of State
Legislatures to learn more information and track
actions by state legislatures across the nation.
"By acting quickly and
overseeing the securing of federal funding, we
can better work through our challenges to sustain
economic prosperity and a high quality of life
for Missourians for years to come," he said.
I was pretty excited bout
my first bicycle. Lookin back, it
wasnt much. It had hard rubber tires, no
coaster brake or brakes at all. It was direct
drive and no real pedals, just pins stickin
out where pedals used ta be.
The learnin process
consumed nearly a full day, from sun up to sun
down. In the commercials, they always have smooth
sidewalks, no hills and plenty of shrubbery to
My neighborhood had giant
cracks in the sidewalk, seems I was always
goin up hill and the only thing green was
the grass growin up in the gravel roads. It
was an eventful day for me.
I went directly to bed without
mendin scrapes and bruises or even
eatin supper that night. Slept mighty good
as I recall.

By JoAnn Derson
medicine to my dogs, I have always coated the
pills in butter or peanut butter. It seems to
make it more appetizing, or the butter at least
helps it go down smoothly. I recently was
prescribed some pills that are very large. I
tried the butter method on myself, and sure
enough, it works." -- J.K. in Pennsylvania
"A nice, cheap
exfoliator for skin is baking soda. It gives just
enough scrub, and a box is less than a dollar. I
love it." -- A Reader in Minnesota
"I cook soup in
quantity, because my family loves leftovers. To
cool a big pot quickly, I keep a clean, plastic
water bottle mostly filled with water, which I
freeze. I use it to stir the soup. It cools down
quickly, and then I can stick it in smaller
containers in the fridge." -- V.L., via
"In a pinch, you can
invert a metal colander over a pot of spaghetti
sauce or a pan of greasy bacon or burgers to keep
things nice and neat while cooking. It catches
the splatter in the net, and the grease or sauce
doesnt get all over your stovetop. I really
hate when tomato sauce gets on the wall behind my
stove, because its hard to get off if you
dont catch it all right away." -- A.A.
To test whether the oil
in a deep fryer or fry pan is ready, try dropping
a single kernel of popping corn into it. If
its hot enough, it should pop.
