By Johnny Kampis | Missouri Watchdog

ST. LOUIS — Customers of Ameren Missouri will be paying $120 a year more for electricity, and higher rates are on the horizon.

The Missouri Public Service Commission earlier this week OK’d Ameren’s rate increase that will hike residential bills an average of $10 a month.

But the PSC has yet to act on a proposal to create a separate rate class for low-income power customers, which could cause bills to increase even more for those not in that lower rate class.

You wake up in the morning and bang the date is 12/12/12. December 12, 2012 has '12's in a row. Oh no, what do we do? Sounds like a good reason to call in sick for work.

There are plenty of people who have made their predictions based on this, that, and the other about what will happen or if will we all turn into some type of animal; maybe 12 different types. I took 12 minutes to search the web to find out why there is so much hype over today’s date.

Tax increases on middle class - the wealthy - budget cuts - Congress can't decide as "fiscal cliff" nears

By Johnny Kampis | Missouri Watchdog
ST. LOUIS — Tick tock goes the fiscal clock, and when the alarm sounds taxes will rise.

The nation will fall off the so-called “fiscal cliff” in less than three weeks unless Congress can reach an agreement on a combination of budget cuts and tax increases.

But as the days draw nearer to 2013, when Bush-era tax cuts expire and rates stand to go up, Missouri’s congressional delegation seems as divided on the issue as the rest of the nation.

“The clock is ticking, no question about that,” said Steve Walsh, Rep. Vicky Hartzler’s press secretary.

If nothing is done the average American family’s tax bill stands to go up between about $3,000 to $4,000, depending on which study you believe. The Heritage Foundation said the average Missourian would pay $2,634 more in taxes next year.

By Kyle Quick and Kaylin Bade: Download article

In 1992, Tim Strobel became the Junior Varsity boys’ basketball Coach and Assistant Varsity Coach, which turned out to be the missing link to the men’s basketball program and eventually formed the Steinhoff/ Strobel era.

Regardless of one’s opinion of Mr. Strobel it cannot be argued that he coached because of his love for New Haven High School and for the kids, while he refused to accept a single penny for coaching; instead he wanted his portion given to other coaches.
