Dunklin County residents are voting August seventh on two propositions that would, if passed, lead to the construction of a new hospital in Kennett.  There have been several concerns from Dunklin County citizens about the propositions, which led to the county’s three commissioners to hold public forums throughout the county to present information about the taxes that will be voted on.  The first public forum was held Thursday night in the northern Dunklin County town of Malden.  Just over 40 residents showed up at the meeting.

The 91st General Assembly of 2017, in a decision that brought Supreme Court Chief Justice Dan Kemp over to the old Supreme Court chambers in the Capitol — now the scene of Senate committee meetings — decided to put to voters this November a big cap on lawsuit awards as well as a legislative power grab.
