Kidnapping Waynesville leaders suggested as solution to Dixon looking "like a dump"
DIXON, Mo. (April 15, 2015) — The husband of a newly elected Dixon alderman has a novel idea to improve his town: kidnap community leaders from Waynesville to find out what they’re doing that works. John Thilges made that suggestion during the public comment period of Wednesday’s city council meeting, the meeting in which his wife Betty was sworn into office as an alderman following the April 7 elections. The Thilgeses are far from new to Dixon politics; they’ve lived in the community for more than two decades and Betty Thilges had run for mayor many years ago while serving as an alderman. “When I drive through Dixon it looks like a dump. When I used to drive through Waynesville, it used to look like Dixon, only worse,” John Thilges said. “We need to find out who did that and kidnap them and do what it takes to bring them here... somebody knows what needs to be done.” Click here to read more on Pulaski County Daily News ...

FLW's next commander's past fights included Superstorm Sandy and stopping IEDs
The man who as a lieutenant colonel was once director of the unit at U.S. Army Fort Leonard Wood which trains soldiers to stop IEDs and other explosive devices, currently the main killer of American soldiers in Afghanistan, will soon return as a general to command the entire installation. At Friday’s Committee of Fifty meeting, Fort Leonard Wood’s chief of staff, Col. James Reckard, announced that Maj. Gen. Les Smith will move later this spring from commanding Fort Leonard Wood to serving as the deputy to the Army’s inspector general in the Pentagon. His successor will be Brig. Gen. Kent Savre, whose last time at Fort Leonard Wood was from 2005 to 2007 as head of the Counter-Explosive Hazard Center. More recently, Savre was at Fort Hood, Texas when an Army psychiatrist attacked and killed troops, including some under his command, and headed the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers North Atlantic Division when Superstorm Sandy hit New York and New Jersey. Click here to read more on Pulaski County Daily News ...
