    Last week I had the opportunity to go around the 3rd Congressional District and talk to many of you about what’s on your mind and the number one question I’ve been getting from folks is “Where are the jobs?” And the response I have is quite simple: House Republicans have passed over 40 different bills that seek to get government out of the way of the free market and create

    As a nation, it’s our responsibility to protect children, the most vulnerable members of our society. Despite our best efforts, too many children in Missouri and nationwide still fall victim to abuse, often at the hands of adults they trusted.

    Freedom has a different meaning for everyone. For some it’s knowing they have the freedom to speak what’s on their mind. For others, it’s knowing they have the right to bear arms.

    On Sunday, July 6, it was great to see so many families and seniors at the Lincoln County Fair parade. The theme, “Raised on Country Sunshine” surely was a big hit.
