Missouri Livestock symposium offers valuable information on

Even in the information age, it’s tough to find time to pull together everything a farmer needs to keep up with the latest trends in agriculture.

The Missouri Livestock Symposium can do the work for them.
On Dec. 1-2, national and international experts from Missouri and other states will gather to talk about topics as diverse as horses, beef cattle, sheep, meat goats and stock dogs.
The sixth annual symposium,

Weatherization program helps elderly, disabled and those on fixed income combats winter cold, save on fuel bills

It is that time of year again; to pull out the heavy coats and hats to break the outside chill of winter.

However, as temperatures across the state drop below freezing levels, many Missourians will face the chill of winter inside their homes. This is especially true for low income families, the working poor, seniors and the disabled.
As energy prices increase, many families will go without food, medical services

Halloween is time for extra safety in front and behind the wheel; wear bright and stay in the light

Halloween is always a time to take extra safety precautions – including behind the wheel.

While the No. 1 cause of injuries Halloween night is accidental falls from tripping over hems of costumes, steps or curbs, perhaps more startling is the fact that four times more children are killed that night each year in pedestrian-automobile accidents than any other night of the year, according to the Centers for Disease Control

Letter to the Editor – Editor’s Note

Editor’s Note: This news- paper regularly invites locally elected officials to communicate to our readers, an invitation extended to aldermen and to the mayor, as well as to the city administrator and police chief of Gallatin.

What Alderman Lockridge describes is not a question of cutting a few corners to save a few dollars but, unfortunately, municipal bankruptcy if no changes are made. Then the issue would be whether we

Letter to the Editor – Edward Nixon

Dear Editor,

As a Missouri citizen, I am concerned about what Amendment 3 would do to our state economy.

A fiscal impact report by University of Missouri Professor Joseph Haslag shows that Amendment 3 would create billions in new government spending while doing little for smoking cessation programs.

Less that 3% of the proposed tax would go to smoking cessation programs. 82.5% of the money would become "supplemental payments" for

Letter to the Editor – Judy Bush

Dear Editor,

I’m writing in regard to the councilman’s comments on the front page in last week’s Gallatin paper.

I’d like to see this councilman give our mayor a chance to be mayor and not act as mayor himself. He said at the city council meeting when the mayor was appointed, he wanted Barb as mayor. I think Barb would make a good mayor if she were given the chance

From the mayor’s desk

by Barb Ballew, Mayor of Gallatin

With fall clearly underway, and the trees showing their beautiful colors, it makes one reflect on how lucky we are to live in such a versatile part of the country and to be able to enjoy the ever-changing landscape.
Our council has now been filled and hopefully we will all work together to stop the massive bleeding in our city’s finances and have long-range

Off the Editor’s Spike: Wind farms elsewhere can impact here

by Darryl Wilkinson

With winter’s approach, focusing on electricity costs and the rate changes that impact our household budgets command attention. But maybe we should also be watching how the winds of change are blowing near Rock Port.  Or more specifically, how efficiently the winds passing through Northwest Missouri can operate turbines to generate electricity.
People who know about these things say wind turbines aren’t practical in Daviess County (…er,

Family Daze: Memories of my very own Halloween angel

by Debbie Farmer

Halloween has always been the scariest holiday of the year, especially at my house. I live in sheer terror, from the first week of October to the last, of how to decorate our home, of what candy will make me a hit in the neighborhood, and what candy bring a storm of eggs and toilet paper the next morning. And, of course, there’s always the dreaded notion
