U.S. Senator Claire McCaskill says the healthcare markets are being “sabotaged” by uncertainty from the Trump Administration on whether it will pay subsidies to insurers and enforce Obamacare’s individual mandate provision.

Monday (5/27) is Memorial Day, and, there will be several opportunities for honoring veterans before you head to a barbecue or the lake.    Branson has a few events planned over the long weekend, including a Memorial Day Service Monday morning at 11 at Ozarks Memorial Park Cemetery, 1638 E. Highway 76.  The Branson Vietnam Veterans of America Chapter 913 said it will hold the service “to honor those who have faithfully defended our Nation and preserved our freedom.”

There are over 13,000 veterans living in the Springfield area. And several are looking for work.

The event, conducted last week by the Show-Me Heroes program in conjunction with the Springfield Career Center, was the first veteran career fair in the city this year.

Department of Economic Development Representative Al Smith says veterans are mission motivated and team players.
