I am outraged that the current state legislators are trying to bypass the clear will of Missouri voters for "Clean Missouri", by weasel wording and resubmitting it as Amendment 3. Senator Hegeman (R) and his committee are insulting us to think that they can sneak this by, or keep putting it …
Great to hear that the Webster-Kirkwood Times will begin publishing a printed newspaper on Sept. 25! It was a "must read" every Friday in my household for thirty-two years. Each week it sat on the coffee table so my wife and I could refer to the calendar during the week.
The September 15, 2020 edition featured a complaint from a reader that Don Corrigan’s editorial — dated Sept. 3, 2020, entitled “McCloskeys, Politicians & The True Believers,” — overstepped its bound by inappropriately injecting personal bias and opinion into the newspaper.
Don Corrigan, your editorial in last week's WK-Times is a bit beyond the pale. You are using the paper here as your personal bully pulpit to advance your own politics.
I am truly grateful that the staff at the Times has stepped forward to keep this newspaper going. At this time in the course of our country, we need all the honest journalism we can get.
Attention military personnel: your Commander-in-Chief thinks that you’re losers and suckers!
Over the last several days, racist graffiti has defaced sidewalks outside several local churches and at the base of the statue at Barbre Park which honors the rich history of our North Webster neighborhood. Additionally, anonymous letters seeking the removal of Black Lives Matter signs on pr…

The Moms of Meacham Christmas Party was held on Dec. 20 at the Kirkwood Community Center. About 150-plus toys and gifts were collected at Hardy’s State Farm. The toys were generously donated by dozens of area businesses, organizations and wonderful neighbors! Read more
Kirkwood is considered one of the great communities in St. Louis. It is because of this strong sense of community that our company, Altus Properties, began considering the development of our proposed Kirkwood Flats project on Kirkwood Road. From day one, we worked to assure that our team inc… Read more
Kirkwood School District promised, after allowing the unnecessary title of Mx. at Keysor Elementary, the district would not teach gender identity. The superintendent had also made this promise. They have misled us yet again with an abuse of power. Read more
Recently the Webster-Kirkwood Times had an article about managed deer hunts. I would disagree that more does should be targeted because “they are the reproducers.” They cannot reproduce by themselves. It seems like the bucks are the real problem. Read more

As architects and co-owners of a Kirkwood-based architecture firm, we are deeply disheartened to learn of the plans for demolishing the Craftsman-style home at 324 N. Taylor Avenue. The home is a beautiful example of early 20th Century architecture and has been well maintained over the years… Read more
While I appreciate the general perspective of Daniel Bruzzini’s letter “Christmas is a Holiday for Everyone” (Mailbag, Dec. 20), I have to call BS on his flawed, revisionist statement that “the prosperity of 19th century capitalism followed the direction of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol… Read more
The front page of the Dec. 13 WK Times with a photo of four young chefs at the Walter Ambrose Family Center Preschool was endearing. It gave me a sense that, despite all the dire news we hear, there are some encouraging rays of joy and hope for our world. Read more

We both took chemistry in high school in 1955, myself at the old Coyle High School at Clay and Jefferson avenues and my husband, Dick, at Kirkwood High School on Essex Avenue. We had a Wise chemistry teacher, Elmer Headley. We both liked chemistry but we never ever thought that a Nobel Prize… Read more
I would like to commend the Kirkwood High School seniors for sharing their thoughts and experience through participation on the Kirkwood High School Mental Health Awareness Committee for their community service project (Mailbag, Dec. 13). Read more

In a Dec. 6 letter to the editor, Maria Blaha of Webster Groves said she was “appalled” that Senator Josh Hawley promptly acknowledged receipt of a letter she sent but didn’t go into great detail. As Sen. Hawley’s State Director, let me take a moment to explain our process for responding to … Read more
Imagine not being able to attend school because of crippling anxiety. Imagine not being able to leave home due to depression. Imagine feeling like you don’t have hope because of your suicidal thoughts. These are examples of people in our communities suffering. It’s important for citizens to … Read more
It was encouraging to see that public education is going to be a major part of Kirkwood’s Complete Streets program for the promotion of traffic and pedestrian safety (Webster-Kirkwood Times, Dec. 6 issue). This is where we need to begin, but results will be slow and there will be resistance. Read more
I walk our two dogs every morning, our route down Madison then Gilbert. On that route there is a cocker spaniel behind a fence that barks at us coming and going. This morning the cocker got out of the fence and came running up to me and the dogs. I went to the front porch, the dog followed a… Read more
President Donald Trump has on many occasions accused someone of “Never A Trumper,” as if this was a derogatory claim. Quite the contrary! It is a statement that whoever he was talking about was loyal to the United States of America and to the U.S. Constitution first. Read more
