Larry Mitchell was the guest speaker Monday at the American Legion, Teachenor Post 376 Memorial Day Service held at the Shelbina American Legion Hall.

The annual Memorial Day Service at the Shelbina American Legion Hall in Shelbina drew a large number of people this year.
   Larry Mitchell was the guest speaker. He talked about how throughout history the American soldiers sacrificed so much for the freedoms that Americans have today. Mitchell said it’s important to honor those people and their families for their sacrifices.
   “I grew up admiring the soldiers from World War II, trying to understand why they didn’t talk about the war that seemed so glamorized on television and in the movies,” Mitchell said. He said they had a hard time in history classes understanding the war and during the Vietnam War, why people were protesting.
   “My brother Bob served during the Vietnam War, during the advisory period of the early 1960s. He served as a transportation sergeant from 1964 to 1965. He took care of the soldiers arriving and departning from Vietnam. No one wanted to see him when they arrived, but everyone was looking for him 11 1/2 months later to catch a flight home to the United States,” he explained.

The Shelbina City Council heard concerns from Cheryl Bowling pertaining to the new insurance the City recently went with. She spoke during the public comment portion of Tuesday night’s regular meeting to voice those concerns.
   Insurance Concerns
   Cheryl Bowling sent a letter to the mayor and council about concerns she had pertaining to the new insurance.
   Bowling said that her husband Allen’s medication jumped from $65 every three months to $100 every three months. His strips jumped from $65 to $100 every three months and his needles that he was getting free jumped up to $100 every three months.
   The City recently switched to Federated Insurance for the next fiscal year.
   City Clerk Tim Lacy said that in not every case has the price jumped like that. He said he understands Bowling’s frustration with the jump and suggested that she might speak with the doctor to see if there is a chance the price could drop once the blood sugar levels out. He said that once it got into a range where it was steady each day if they would be able to get her a better rate, or a different medication that was just as good, for a cheaper rate.
