The Dent County Commissioners held their regular meeting Monday morning at the Dent County Courthouse. In the road report, District 1 Commissioner Dennis Purcell reported that grading would be done on Dent County Roads 5080, 5450 and 5460, while materials will be added and grading will be done on Dent County Road 6080. Purcell stated that brush would be cut on Dent County Road 5360 and that workers were installing a transmission filter on Dent County Truck #117. District 2 Commissioner Gary Larson stated that grading was going to be done on Dent County Roads 2370, 2403, 2405 and 4310, while materials were going to be added and grading was going to be done on Dent County Roads 2200 and 4300. Larson said that brush was going to be cut on Dent County Road 3140. Presiding Commissioner Darrell Skiles said that he will be attending a CCAM meeting Wednesday morning and then the commissioners will be attending their annual training in Jefferson City. Because they will be in training on Thursday, there will be no commission meeting this Thursday. Dent County Clerk Angie Curley said that the last day to request the county to mail out a ballot will be Wednesday and that her office will be open in the courthouse this Saturday from 8:00 AM until noon for absentee voting. The last day to absentee vote will be Monday, February 6th at the clerk’s office. Election day polls will be open from 6:00 AM until 7:00 PM next Tuesday. She also mentioned that the last day to register to vote in the April election is March 7th. The Commission then received a letter from Drug Court Commissioner Jon A. Kiser requesting the commission approve $80 in expenses for flowers for a funeral to be paid for out of Drug Court. The commission, who had previously declined authorizing payment for the flowers, will forward the letter on to Prosecutor Sid Pearson for further clarification. Sandy Hogan with Senate Bill 40 was in attendance and the board, by a 3-0 vote, recommended and re-appointed Marvin McDonald and Philip Giacomelli to that Board. That board is still two members short. The next meeting of the Dent County Commissioners will be Monday morning, February 6th at 9:00 at the courthouse and the meeting is open to the public.

Hunters who put up temporary deer stands on Mark Twain National Forest should have already removed them. Portable deer hunting tree stands are permitted to be placed in the Mark Twain National Forest two weeks before deer season. Portable deer hunting tree stands are to be removed no later than two weeks after the close of archery deer season, which ended on January 15, 2012. Tree stands now discovered on Mark Twain National are subject to seizure and impoundment.  Permanent deer stands are prohibited. Permanent deer stands are any wooden or metal structure that has been attached or fixed to a tree and used for the purpose of hunting deer when in season.  Any permanent deer stands found on Mark Twain National Forest will be treated as unauthorized structures, prohibited under law and regulation, and are subject to removal. In addition, use of screw-in steps, screws or nails, and any material that would damage trees is also prohibited. When using temporary portable deer stands in the Mark Twain National Forest, the temporary portable deer stand must have the full name, address, and telephone number of the user.  Stands that don’t have identifying information are unauthorized structures and can also be impounded by Mark Twain National Forest law enforcement personnel. If you have questions concerning Mark Twain National Forest’s deer stand policy, please contact Toby Barton, Poplar Bluff Ranger District law enforcement officer; 1420 Maud Street, Poplar Bluff, MO, or by phone at (573) 785-1475.

Michael Dixon's trip from goat to hero took all of 25 seconds. After committing an offensive flagrant foul that helped Texas take the lead, Dixon converted a difficult left-handed floater with 31 seconds left to lift fourth-ranked Missouri past the Longhorns, 67-66 on Monday night. Dixon missed just once on the night, scoring 21 points off the bench on 9-of-10 shooting, while Phil Pressey and Ricardo Ratliffe added 13 points apiece for the Tigers (20-2, 7-2 Big 12), who claimed their second straight victory.
