Just what do weather people know, anyway?

Boom. We went from Summer to frozen pet water bowls, cars that won't start and furnace issues. Not like it just cooled down a little. No, welcome to Siberia.

The TV weather people are basking (no pun intended) in predicting the exact overnight low, like how important is it to be right on the money when it's below freezing anyway? 

Most of us old school folks like to rely on the Farmer's Almanac to get the straight skinny, but according to it, we are supposed to be having mild conditions right now (see above).  Now, our definition of mild might be slightly different... OR maybe the ol Almanac just got this one wrong.

Not trusting of just one weather predictor, we Googled the long term Winter forecast for Missouri and got just about every conceivable prediction you can think of- from a cataclysmic super white, cold Winter to "much above" and mild temps for the next four months. It seems like fiction that would make H.G. Wells proud.

One could suppose it doesn't matter. Remember, if you don't like our weather, just wait. It'll change anyway. But if you'd like some good reading while your pipes thaw, here you go:

Kidnapping Case investigated in Barton County

Barton County Sheriff Mitchell Shaw reports that the Barton County Sheriff’s Office investigated a Kidnapping case in Barton County on 11-12-2018.

A 46 year of age female alleged she had been tied up and bound by duct tape and nylon rope at her home off of A highway in Barton County. It was told to the deputies that she then was placed and locked inside a wooden box in the home for a lengthy period of time. The woman was able to escape from the box she was held captive in and sought help.

Deputies of the Barton County Sheriff’s Office went to the residence and located the suspect in the home. He has been identified as Matthew F. Clements, age 26, of Lamar. Clements was already wanted on several warrants out of Barton County and the City of Lamar.

Mr. Clements was arrested and taken into custody at the home on A hwy. While being escorted out of the home Clements attempted to flee from the deputies and ran for a short distance before being apprehended once again.

A warrant has been issued for the arrest of Clements on the criminal charges of Kidnapping in the first degree and Resisting arrest. Clements is being held at the Barton County Jail on a $100,000 cash or surety bond on those charges. Sheriff Shaw wants to credit both Deputies responsible in this investigation.

Deputy Chad Mcmanis and Deputy Haven Clemons did a good job in obtaining the information needed in the case and locating the suspect and taking him into custody.
