Parents offer opposing opinions on raffling off firearms to raise money

Breaking News
ST. PETERS, MO - Some local youth sports parents are weighing in on the decision of a Neosho youth team to raise money by raffling off an AR-15.  Organizers of that raffle have been criticized by some who point out the AR-15 was the type of firearm used in the Florida school shooting that took 17 lives. There was a mix of opinions at Gametime Sports in St. Peters Monday night.  Some parents did not see a problem with the raffle while others believed it was in poor taste. “It’s not the gun that kills, it’s the people behind them,” said one parent. “It’s not right.  It’s in bad taste,” said another parent. Firearm raffles are not uncommon.  We found the website 52gunraffle.com.  One upcoming raffle features an AR-15 style firearm. AR-15 style rifles were banned in the United States in 1994

Man City surprise: Ederson’s shock contract offer

Man City surprise: Ederson’s shock contract offer

Sports
Man City & Ederson According to the Sun on Tuesday morning, Manchester City are gearing up to lock Ederson down to a new contract. That’s something of a surprise as the Brazilian number two only joined Man City seven months ago from Benfica. Many questioned whether Man City’s £34 million investment in Ederson was smart business. But nowadays it’s easy to argue that Pep Guardiola picked up a bargain when the South American signed. Only Man United (19) have conceded less than Man City (20) this season. Ederson has kept 12 clean sheets in his first season in the Premier League. While he’s challenged the stereotype of what a goalie does in a game with his fabulous array of passes.

Some shops buy chocolate in bulk and melt it down to make candies and other chocolate treats. Others, like Xocolatl and Cacao, are in the “bean-to-bar” part of the business. They turn cacao beans into richly flavored chocolate. Elaine Read and Matt Weyandt own Xocolatl (which they pronounce “chock-o-lat-tul”), a company based at Krog Street Market near Downtown. It’s named for the word that described chocolate to the Aztecs and, which they point out by a happy coincidence, ends in the letters “A-T-L,” a standard designation for their hometown. Read came late to chocolate. “I didn’t like chocolate growing up,” she said. “To me, it was always too sweet. I
