Family Daze: NOTHING at all to do with soccer

by Debbie Farmer

It never fails. Just when I thought we had safely made it through my son’s soccer season pain-free and without permanent injury, the coach unexpectedly made an announcement that went, "The final soccer practice next week will be a game between the kids and parents." PARENTS!

Kids, of course, live for this kind of stuff. But I don’t need to tell you this brought up all sorts

From the Mayor’s Desk

With the Gallatin community-wide garage sale fast approaching on Oct. 7, I’m sure everyone but me is digging deep into their closets and storage spaces to see what things you can finally live without!

This is such a great incentive for everyone to do some fall cleaning, both inside and out. The saying ‘one man’s trash is another man’s treasure’ is true when it comes to garage sales or flea

Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor:

May I take this opportunity to echo the sentiments expressed by Mr. Monteith in a fine article published last week?

We have heard a lot of rhetoric lately, for and against, the proposed amendment to our Missouri Constitution which will come up for a vote on Nov. 7.

Since moving to Missouri 10 years ago from Illinois, I have come to admire and respect the "show me" attitude

Post Scripts: Morotai memories

by Joe Snyder

All I knew was that our troops had landed on that tiny piece of ground and I had been ordered to accompany several newspapermen (war correspondents) and assist them in getting their dispatches back to the

MOFB’s “Cut to the Chase: Peanut power at the pump

by Denny Banister

The Missouri Farm Bureau Federation constructed a new office building at 1616 Missouri Boulevard, Jefferson City, and moved into the structure in the spring of 1957. Farm Bureau remained there until 1981 when they built larger accommodations.

Since Missouri’s capital city is home to large numbers of state government workers, the state purchased the Missouri Boulevard building and it became the headquarters, appropriately enough, of the Missouri

Worship is Like Going to Grandma’s House

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

I have a lot of good memories about going to Grandma’s house for a visit. Grandma’s house was a special place; and those visits were special times. Christian worship is a lot like that!

THERE’S A WARMTH THERE! You could feel the warmth the moment you walked in the door. Perhaps the warmth came from the old cookstove in the kitchen. Perhaps

The Coonridge Digest: Freida Marie’s Trickle Down theory

by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from the Ridge.

"Herb, I’ve got the plan!"

"What’re you gonna do? Start cooking again?"

"Sweetheart, if I didn’t need somebody to help me lift the microwave to clean, I’d have no use for you at all. Nope, I’m talking about a plan for government."

"Will this one get us arrested?"

"We’ll be given honorary degrees in political science, sweetheart. Listen to this."

"Do I

A jury has ruled that Premium Standard Farms must pay $4.5 million to three families who claimed the animal waste stench from the company’s farm near Trenton created a nuisance.
