I finally heard of a person who thinks Joe ($5 gas, 9% inflation) Biden is a good president. Jimmy Carter. He now can go to sleep every night knowing he is not the worst president in the last 100 years.

My husband and I moved to Shrewsbury in 1983 and raised our four children here with fun memories of snow sledding at Wehner Park, summer days with many friends at Shrewsbury’s pool, the fall soccer tournaments, St. Michael’s festive school picnics and the annual Thanksgiving day flag footbal…

I shop and eat at many of the advertisers in the Webster-Kirkwood Times, and I especially noted the advertisement of Dr. Laura Kee, DVM, for compassionate in-home euthanasia  as I knew it would be the best option if needed for our senior cat, Tremont. 

As a longtime reader and appreciator of the Webster-Kirkwood Times, I have been moved by many pieces through the years. But while reading today’s issue just now, I got choked up three times in the span of 10 minutes. Shout out to Melissa Wilkinson, Leslie Gibson McCarthy and Stefanie Downs f…

My family would like to express our appreciation to Steve Clark and Michelle Clemens for their respective 20-plus years of service to the Webster Groves community. We have lived here for over 36 years, well supported by the excellent caliber of the Webster Groves Parks and Recreation Departm…

The 2022 “Kirkwood Route 66 Festival: Cars and Guitars” rolled out on June 11 after a two-year hiatus. More than 400 people kicked off the festivities at the “Carbs and Guitars” breakfast sponsored by the Kirkwood Rotary Club and Kirkwood Fire Department to benefit their charities. Firehouse…

I commend the city of Webster Groves for making the hard choice to cut expenses. I don’t understand some of the vitriol the city is receiving as a result of those decisions. The city has taken action several times to promote growth, only to have those initiatives undermined by some of our ow…

I love living in Webster Groves. It’s a beautiful, well-located suburb and the people are friendly, caring  and committed to keeping their neighborhoods as idyllic as possible. I think Webster has become even better since we first moved here 43 years ago. I credit city leadership for this. T…

In former educator Bob McMullen’s letter titled “Show Appreciation For ‘Heroes Of Education,’” teachers and their role in the education system are rightfully commended, and additionally, respect and treatment towards teachers should be held to a high standard. 

I attended a wonderful concert at Sappington House park on June 11. It was a fundraiser to help pay for the move of the recently discovered Joseph Sappington log house.

We’ve experienced about seven years of watching the former president consistently revert to his simple marketing phrases and sixth grade-bullying tactics, all for the benefit and enjoyment of his followers. And yes, the “keep it simple” rule seems to work like a charm and is something that h…

It would seem that our Republican members of Congress, in a cold blooded political calculus, believe that the murder of other peoples’ children  is a fair price to pay for quick and easy access to high powered military weapons. 

In her recent letter in the WKT, Joyce Nowak comments on the expiration of the assault rifle ban. Apparently, the Democrats must not have thought this was a significant issue because Barak Obama had eight years in office to correct the situation and did nothing, even though in the beginning …

I think it is ridiculous that the U.S. has not passed comprehensive gun safety laws. The science is there about what works and what doesn’t. The answer to our current epidemic of mass shootings, suicides and homicides is to support political leaders who understand the complexity of a well-co…
