The Week: March 17, 2014

Reading Time: 1

Here’s a roundup of what to look for in the coming week.

St. Louis

Monday, 12:30 p.m.: The Ancient Order of Hibernians’ Annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Dogtown.  Get there early. Give yourself time to park and walk. Dress warmly.

Wednesday, 5:00 p.m.: Protest of St. Louis Archdiocese for its promotion of City-County Merger. Location is Lindell and Grand.

Wednesday, 7:00 p.m.: The activist who helped expose scandal, waste, and corruption at Rockwood School District is running for the Rockwood School Board. Eileen Tyrrell will speak a the Meramec Republican Township meeting at the Eureka Fire Station 1,  4849 Highway 109.  Eileen previously founded Rockwood School District Stakeholders to do what the board was supposed to do–protect tax payers.


All Week: Missouri General Assembly takes its Spring Break, so the march to legitimize red light cameras slow down.


All Week: US Congress on its Spring Break. I used to say “the republic is safe” when Congress is on break. With Obama running his own private legislature, though, the real Congress is always on break and the republic always in peril.

  1. Mr. Hennessy – Regarding your post about Eileen Tyrell speaking at the Meramec Republican Club meeting this Wednesday, please be aware that as Committeeman for the Meramec Township, we invited all candidates for the Rockwood School Board and Eileen was the only candidate to RSVP.

    1. Thanks for the additional information, Byron.

      Not surprising. Eileen is of the people. The Rockwood Board, on the other hand, has a tradition of hiding from taxpayers.
