JB's Piano Bar allegations, North teacher's resignation, Chris Baird rape charges among top Turner Report/Inside Joplin posts

It was a busy week for the Turner Report/Inside Joplin websites, with a combination, as usual, featuring information that cannot be found anywhere else and information that was found here first.

An example of the former is the information from Seventh District Congressman Billy Long's first quarter financial report showing that he had taken three more trips to Las Vegas.

The Turner Report was the first to reveal that felony charges involving unpaid sales taxes and fraud had been filed against Jon Buck, owner of JB's Piano Bar in Joplin.

This blog was also the first to report on the resignation of North Middle School reading teacher Amanda Schweitzer, who faces rape and kidnapping charges.
