I know of a family with 3 little boys that just temporarily lost their foodstamps because of anRead More error made by the state. How do they get help from Macomb Panties? Is there a current list of places available some where?

Thank you for setting this up, Mr. David (and to the Patch for promoting it). I will be sure to stopRead More by the booth.

How exciting is this? I have attended these in the past and what a great way for us to show off ourRead More community. Congratulations to those responsible for bringing this event back and looking forward to it. I may not be a lawyer, nor interested in becoming one, but it sure sounds like some sort of law is being broken for a government agency to accept donations for a cause all while that same department is adamant in dissolving this unit. No different than having a donation bowl displayed at the cash registers at every store around Chesterfield seeking donations for this cause as the residents are more than willing to drop loose change into it. The real question just may be, What are the true intentions of Chesterfield for the monies being raised? I would imagine there is some drooling involved and it’s not coming from a dog. If Chesterfield is out of the K-9 business give all the proceeds should go to the sheriff’s office K-9 unit thus bringing truth to the advertised plea. If this does not happen than who will be in charge of the donation once it is handed over to the police department.

I've often thought about joining the Peace Corps, but I don't know if I have what it takes to liveRead More without regular electricity and running water. Major props to Danielle for stepping way out of her comfort zone. Could you do it?
