Graves votes to end gun lawsuits; House bill stops frivolous lawsuits

U.S. Congressman Sam Graves

U.S. Congressman Sam Graves voted this week to end frivolous lawsuits against gun makers. S. 397 The Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act protects the firearms industry from lawsuits that arise from the unlawful acts of criminals who misuse their product.

“It is common sense legislation that holds people responsible for their actions,” said Graves. “It prevents a few state courts from suing the entire

The importance of controlling the border

The importance of controlling the border

As we head into the final months of this year’s session in Congress we may finally get to have a real discussion about immigration reform. I believe that this kind of legislation is long overdue.

The very first thing we need to do is get control of our borders. Any discussion of plans or changes is dependent upon our ability

Statement regarding Corps’ announcement on two spring rises for the Missouri River

by Missouri Farm Bureau President Charles E. Kruse

by Missouri Farm Bureau President Charles E. Kruse

“The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) dealt a huge blow to Missouri landowners today by calling for two spring rises on the Missouri River. The draft 2005-2006 Annual Operating Plan codifies what many have believed all along; efforts to seek consensus among basin stakeholders were nothing but a smokescreen.

Ultimately, bureaucrats in the

Those who pay debt to society earn the right to vote

Capital Eye by Randi Bjornstad

Capital Eye by Randi Bjornstad

This year marks the 40th anniversary of the all-important Voting Rights Act, which guarantees everyone – but which primarily has helped minority groups – the right to vote by, among other things, outlawing poll taxes and prohibiting literacy tests as prerequisites for casting ballots.

Although most people in this country now take these rights for granted, some provisions of the

Letter to the Editor from Spencer C. Ray, Pastor

Dear Editor:

As a follow-up to Joe Snyder’s recent column, where he took a venture into the “theology” behind Hurricane Katrina’s timely strike of New Orleans, let me suggest that our neighbors take a look at Luke 13:1-5. This is where Jesus answered a question by someone that was trying to interpret the meaning of bad things that make “sinners” be the victims of crime and tragedy.

I think Jesus

Letter to the Editor from Gene Schweizer

Dear Editor:

I believe a few minutes of the mayor’s time spent to research and ascertain the facts for himself would be more productive than conversing with the past city administrator on the phone.

Let’s look at the ‘facts” used to defend himself and the council. He says there is nothing in the state statutes about creating a separate fund for the combined water and sewer system. Is this an

Letter to the Editor from Shelia Bridgman

Dear Editor:

In regard to the editorial last week (Oct. 19) by Joe Sndyer, although thought-provoking, I fear it denies, in many ways, the sovereignty and power of God Almighty — the creator and ruler of the universe.

First of all, the Bible — God’s infallible and complete Word — tells us that God is the same yesterday, today and forever. I have read, a popular view today is that

Celebrating All Saint’s Day

Dr. Don Kuehle, United Methodist, Retired, Jackson, Missouri

We celebrate Halloween on Oct. 31. We should be celebrating All Saints Day on Nov. 1. We’re observing the wrong holiday!

In days gone by, Christians celebrated All Saints Day On Nov. 1. It was a day to remember all those “saints” of God who had died in the faith. Nov. 1 was a sacred and
