Capitol Report: Hosting Missouri’s highway commission

by Brad Lager

I have always believed that we need to get decision makers out of Jefferson City and into our part of the state in order for our concerns to be understood. Last week, the Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission traveled to northwest Missouri for their July meeting. This marked their third trip to northwest Missouri in the last three years and nearly 100 local government officials from throughout

Firefly people and glow-worm personalities

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

We were sitting on the patio drinking in the sounds and sights of a summer evening. Thunder announced an approaching storm. Lightning glimmered in the distance. Nature was putting on a spectacular show. Our attention was focused on the distant storm. Then I saw it! A tiny flash of light against the back-drop of darkness. A lightning bug. Firefly. Glow-worm. Lightning-in-a-capsule.

by Congressman Sam Graves

U.S. Congressman Sam Graves introduced legislation on recently that would call for a moratorium on non-resident immigration until the government ends a visa lottery program and can effectively screen new entries into the country.

by Joe Snyder

It is difficult for me to realize that it’s been 40 years ago that Lake Viking became

From the Mayor’s Desk:

by Barb Ballew, mayor

First and foremost I want to personally thank our neighbors at Lake Viking for hosting one of the most beautiful fireworks displays in this part of the country. It was beautiful and so enjoyable. For those of you who didn’t have the opportunity to witness it, you really missed out. Thank you, Lake Viking, for your community invitation to us all.

With July now halfway over,

Family Daze: But darn it, I miss my old picture

by Debbie Farmer

Something terrible happened to me: I had to get my picture taken. Oh, okay, so maybe it’s not the riveting heinous kind of terrible that you see on the evening news and trashy talk shows, but still disturbing none-the-less. Before I continue, let me just stop right here and say that it wasn’t my idea. I blame the DMV.

As anyone with a driver’s license knows, every

The Coonridge Digest – Back roads state-of-the-kernels tour

by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from the Ridge.

The tough part of Midwest summer travel has nothing to do with airlines or train schedules, but the annual assault of the state highway departments upon our local roads and tempers. In fact, most states have websites warning you of construction areas. That’s fine and dandy, but the websites don’t go far enough. If you plan to do any traveling at all
