    PINEVILLE, Mo. — Gregg Sweeten had difficulty last week putting his reaction into words. When he learned that funding for the long-sought Bella Vista Bypass had been found, Sweeten, the Pineville mayor and McDonald County emergency manager, was stunned. Then he was elated. "That is amazing," Sweeten said. "That is going to be so great. I think it’s going to lead to all kinds of opportunities not only for Pineville but for McDonald County. I mean, it’s just — I just can’t say how happy I am. Wow. That is ... that’s wild. That’s amazing. That’s a Christmas present right...

    Joplin, MO - The Joplin Police Department has been ordered to cease all posting of "incident spotlights" which make criminals look bad by telling the public about their crimes. The incident spotlights tell the public about incidents that the department has responded to, and may include mugshots. KOAM reports that they have obtained e-mails which show disagreement between the police department and city manager about the social media posts. Joplin Police Chief Matt Stewart and Captain Trevor Duncan fought to keep the posts going, but City Manager Sam Anselm shut them down. According to KOAM, Anselm sent an e-mail to...

  • Obama hypocrisy: Joplin High School commencement address - "Generosity, Selfishness"

    Addressing the graduating seniors of Joplin High School during a commencement speech on Monday, President Obama praised the selfless response of the Joplin community, and other kindhearted individuals, in the aftermath of the horrific tornadoes that struck the city last year. But the President cautioned the students that "as you begin the next stage in your journey, you will encounter greed and selfishness; ignorance and cruelty. You will meet people...who believe looking after others is only for suckers." "But", the President added, "you [the students] are from Joplin. So you will remember, you will know, just how many people there...

    Joplin is getting another big boost from the Middle East as the Missouri city rebuilds and prepares for the anniversary of a devastating tornado that killed 161 people. United Arab Emirates Ambassador Yousef Al Otaiba was in Joplin Friday to announce that the oil-rich Persian Gulf nation is donating $5 million to Mercy Hospital for a pediatric section and the development of a neonatal intensive care unit, a first for the Joplin hospital. Mercy was one of the most prominent of 8,000 buildings destroyed in the May 22 twister. The towering structure was left little more than a shell after...

    JOPLIN, Mo. (AP) — By all accounts, Mark Lindquist is a hero, an underpaid social worker who nearly gave his life trying to save three developmentally disabled adults from the Joplin tornado. Both houses of the Missouri legislature honored Lindquist, the Senate resolution calling him "a true hero and inspiration to others." But heroism doesn't pay the bills. The tornado's 200 mph winds tossed Lindquist nearly a block, broke every rib, obliterated his shoulder, knocked out most of his teeth and put him in a coma for about two months. Lindquist, 51, ran up medical expenses that exceed $2.5 million,...

    Some federal money pledged to tornado-ravaged Joplin and other disaster sites is being diverted to help victims of Hurricane Irene. Bob Josephson of the Federal Emergency Management Agency said Monday that FEMA's Disaster Relief Fund is running low. He says individual aid to victims of the May 22 tornado that destroyed about one-third of Joplin will continue, but money for long-term public repair and rebuilding projects will be used for immediate disaster relief on the East Coast.

    JOPLIN, Mo. — Rush Limbaugh will come to Joplin on Monday, along with a truckload of ice tea products for revelers at the annual Fourth of July celebration. Limbaugh’s appearance evolved from a contest conducted to promote his company, “Two If by Tea.” The contest sought nominations for Limbaugh to send a truckload of chilled tea products to a Fourth of July celebration of a city that “celebrates American pride.” A number of contest entries nominated Joplin as the destination, citing local efforts to recover from the May 22 tornado. Limbaugh announced on Friday that the truckload of tea will...

    While most speakers at the Faith and Freedom Coalition played up conservative themes, Donald Trump delivered a crowd-pleasing reprise of a few old favorite themes. But also in his sights: House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, who has called for spending offsets for disaster-relief funds following a tornado in Joplin, a southwest Missouri town, that killed at least 138 people. “Rep. Cantor, who I like, said we don’t want to give money to the tornado victims. And yet in Afghanistan, we’re spending $10 billion a month,” Trump said. “But we don’t want to help the people that got devastated by tornadoes,...

    LAQUEY, Mo. (May 23, 2011) — Just one day after a tornado struck Joplin and destroyed thousands of homes, the 287 students of Laquey Elementary School began a fundraising project that they hope will help a fellow southwest Missouri community. The Laquey R-V School District is located to the west and southwest of Fort Leonard Wood, and the New Years Eve tornado which struck Fort Leonard Wood tore through the far southern end of the Laquey district on its way to the post. While nobody was hurt and the affected parts of the Laquey district were mostly unpopulated forested land,...

Lynn Morgan, Fort Leonard Wood Army Community Services director, said that after the tornado struck Fort Leonard Wood, donations poured in from all over the country and the magnitude of the amount of items...

    What happened in Joplin, MO was not an Act of God.  It was a natural act of nature.  The storm came about because the weather patterns were right, but it would have happened there with or without the town of Joplin in its path.  The Act of God is was what came later. Joplin will never be the same.  Our hearts are broken, but not our spirit.  I am standing on Range Line road looking at what was my town.  I see where the Academy Sports used to stand and near it our favorite pizza place, Pizza By Stout.  Behind...
