Sunset Hills residents have been blind-sided, and lulled into a false sense of security, by the city of Sunset Hills’ vague references about a “rugby field” lease within the new Bander Park’s 100-plus acres, formerly Sunset Hills Golf Course.

A century ago women were working to achieve equality in voting. Untrue statements about the fitness of women to make voting decisions were shared. Unfounded fears that women’s suffrage would lead to the disintegration of American institutions were used to dissuade men from ratifying the 19th…

On June 23 we were privileged to watch two experienced warriors do battle at Busch stadium. Two experienced warriors on opposite teams who truly love each other but would fight to the end to win. Does baseball or any other sport get better than that. Thank you so much Yadi and Albert for the…

As a 30-plus year resident of Fenton, I am embarrassed at the pettiness of some of our elected officials with regard to the ongoing stalemate over filling an empty aldermanic seat. I freely admit I am not well versed in the statutes, regulations, etc., which do or do not apply. It does seem …

Our mayor has brought government in Fenton pretty much to a stop. He is holding some special meetings to take care of emergencies; however, he is refusing to conduct regularly scheduled committee meetings. Our city administrator apparently couldn’t work in this environment and has resigned.

A recent letter to the editor claimed that new pro-life laws are taking us back to the dark ages. But abortion is strictly not progressive.

So America has stepped back in time and joined other states in anti-abortion legislation. Is this truly about saving unborn children or about eliminating women’s rights?

Newly elected Fenton Mayor Brasses kept his campaign promise to work with the residents, for the residents. Mayor Brasses held a special meeting to recommend an alderman for the opening in Ward 3. By doing that immediately, residents would be represented equally with two aldermen in each ward.
