Weeks of campaign ads and electioneering are about to culminate in Tuesday's national election. In Boone County, there are several races and ballot issues to vote on.

County Clerk Wendy Noren expects about 60,000 county citizens to cast a ballot on Election Day. She said the main draw will be the U.S. Senate race between Republican Roy Blunt and Democrat Robin Carnahan.

On the state level, voters will pick a new auditor and decide on two propositions and three constitutional amendments. Two propositions are on the ballot in Columbia, including a potential ban on Taser use within the city and an extension of the park sales tax.

Aside from the numerous issues, Boone County residents will pick a new presiding commissioner and choose several new state House representatives.

(1) ”Covered dog” means any individual of the species of the domestic dog, Canis lupus familiaris, or resultant hybrids, that is over the age of six months and has intact sexual organs." I see use of commas as seperating three diffrent items, my question is resultant hybrids, hasn't Wayne himself state that domestic animal are the result of human crossbreeding? . Dog, domestic dog, and canis lupus familiaris all three have the same meaning and refer back to one another. Resultant hybrids is genetic termanology only meaning cross breeding as a result or action of something. Now we go down to where it defines pet. Hmm...looks to me as if this is the loop hole for HSUS to regulate animal agriculture in the state of Missouri!

Proposition B is actually the "The PUPPY MILL CRUELTY PREVENTION ACT". The Columbia Missourian consistently shows how unbalanced it's reporting is.
The official wording is NOT "restrictions on Missouri dog breeders" but is actually "Relating to Dog Breeders" in the language of the law.

Anne Hogan Wrote: "It really could not be any more clear that Prop B applies ONLY to dogs used for breeding. You are lifting those definitions out of context. Lines VIII and IX are subsections of paragraph 5, which states "For purposes of this section, and notwithstanding the provisions of section 273.325, the following terms have the following meanings". That means that those terms - as used in Prop B to describe breeding dogs - have those meanings within the context of the proposition."
It about DOGS in SUBsTANDARD commercialbreeding facilities.
Not horses, pigs, chickens, cats, etc. It's about BREEDING DOGS!
