Farming Rights Amendment will protect Missouri farmers

To The Herald-Whig:

Missouri Amendment 1, or the Missouri Farming Rights Amendment, will protect all farmers and ranchers, big and small.

According to the Farm Bureau, "Amendment 1 will create the regulatory certainty necessary for agriculture to remain viable in Missouri and help guarantee that families in future generations can continue to farm and ranch across our state."

More than 400 ag groups are supporting this amendment and I plan to vote yes for it, too.

Therapy dog knows just what Baldwin students need
Cooper heads down the hallway in Baldwin West for another day of school. He's focused. He's friendly. He's furry. Cooper, a golden doodle, is teacher Erin Armbruster's trained therapy dog, and his pawprints reach beyond just her classroom. "He helps out the students. He's a very good dog," fifth-grader Myles Cain said.
