MO State Parks Closing for Special Hunts
Seven state parks in Missouri---including Crowder outside Trenton, Pershing near Laclede, and Watkins Woolen Mill State Park at Kearney---will close to the public Dec. 13-14, during which time managed deer hunts will take place. While hunting is typically not permitted in our state parks, the Missouri DNR supports these special hunts, intended to help keep the population of deer down so that park resources are not overly damaged by them. The hunts will be conducted with MDC guidelines, which regulate hunting of wildlife in the state. Only those with a special permit, distributed over the summer after an application process, will be allowed to take part in the hunts.

Legislators Speak on Amnesty to Illegal Immigrants
Our elected officials on the national level of government released the following comments after President Obama unilaterally issued an executive order to effectively grant amnesty to an estimated four million illegal immigrants last week: Congressman Sam Graves (R-6th District) – "The actions outlined by the President are another display of his blatant disregard for our constitutional system, the American people, and all those who went through the extensive process of becoming citizens the correct way. Amnesty rewards those who have cheated the system and punishes those who played by the rules and went through the legal immigration process. I strongly oppose this amnesty order and the President’s attempt to not only bypass the legislative process, but the American people. We are a nation of laws and no one is above the rule of law – not this President or any President." U.S. Senator Claire McCaskill (D) – "Our immigration system is broken, and I support a comprehensive plan to fix it, but executive orders aren’t the way to do it. The system can only be truly fixed through legislation by Congress. The Senate’s comprehensive plan got overwhelming bipartisan approval, and Republicans in the U.S. House have sat on their hands for a year-and-a-half, refusing to even consider that bill. They should quit stalling, get to work, and do their jobs — debate the comprehensive plan that passed the Senate with a two-thirds margin."
