The Missouri Governor’s Mansion, the home to Missouri Governors since 1871, has begun decking its halls for the Christmas season.

 

Eight trees arrived at the Mansion on Monday, November 27, including a 30-foot Norway Spruce that is showcased outside. Five 7-foot white pines are scattered throughout the first floor, with a 10-foot pine on the back porch, and an 18-foot Norway Spruce near the staircase. Indoor trees were acquired from Pea Ridge Forest near Hermann, Missouri, and the 30-foot outdoor spruce was donated by a couple near Canton, Missouri.

In spring of 2017, the Missouri Department of Transportation’s Southeast District began an environmental study on the Chester Bridge. It connects Route 51, and poses no real danger to the 6,500 vehicles that use it a day. But due to modern standards, it’s still being checked for compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act. I spoke with Buddy Desai, the consultant project manager of the study.

The largest fentanyl seizure in the state of Missouri was made in New Madrid County last week.

 

During a traffic stop and search on Nov. 1, the Missouri State Highway Patrol discovered almost five pounds of the powerful opioid drug in a suspect’s vehicle, which had been traveling northbound on Interstate 55. The driver, 27-year-old Angel Larar-Esteban of Phoenix, Arizona, was arrested for felony drug trafficking and endangering the welfare of a child.
