CAPE GIRARDEAU • An inmate in the Ste. Genevieve
County jail sued jail officials Friday claiming that they took away his
weekly newspaper because of a letter that he wrote to the editor.
A. Schell's Oct. 31 letter, according to the lawsuit, criticized local
churches and their pastors for failing to visit inmates and provide
spiritual guidance. He repeatedly asked the clergy, “Where are you?”
