Bruised, battered farm bill passes

by Denny Banister

Most of us tend to procra- stinate a bit, putting off pro- jects until it’s absolutely nec- essary and then turning into a beehive of activity and pro- duction to meet the deadline. Then we vow we will never pro- crastinate again – beginning first thing tomorrow.
Congress is often accused of procrastination – take the Farm Bill, for example. The House finished their version of the

Legislative achievements proved naysayers wrong

by Gov. Matt Blunt

When the legislative session opened in January, some warned that election year politics would block progress on key bills. The gloomy forecasts were mistaken. I have received many important bills and a fiscally responsible budget that puts children and taxpayers first.
For the fourth year in a row, we balanced the state’s budget without job-killing new taxes.
We kept our promise to make education our highest

Days of June

by Dr. Don Kuehle

“What is so rare as a day in June?
Then, if ever, come perfect days;
Then Heaven tries the earth if it be in tune,
And over it softly her warm ear lays.”
So wrote James Russell Lowell.
New Year’s resolutions have been made and broken. The Winter blahs have been banished for another season. Colds and flu are a mere memory. Baseball has replaced basketball

Family Daze: It’s tough living with ‘Mr. Big’

by Debbie Farmer

Due to an onslaught of tooth loss a couple years ago, and lots of shrewd backyard lawn mowing deals, my 12-year-old son (who I’ll call “Mr. Big” due to reasons that

Post Scripts: Memories appropriate this week

by Joe Snyder

Memorial Day has come and gone once again. There were three special services here in San Marcos and we chose the VFW program to attend. I am still a member of the Gallatin VFW and so I attend meaningful services here occasionally. It was to be an outside program but just before the program began there was a brief shower with everyone rushing inside the VFW hall.

Letter to the Editor – Larry Rice

Dear Editor:
I have been a vendor in the Warren House Antiques and Collectibles since 1987. Over the years I have watched the festivals dwindle down to nothing.

Why? From my observation the answer is simple. Too many people trying to be chief and no one is willing to be Indians.
I have observed, as an out- sider, the last few years that the Community Association and the Chamber of

Coon Ridge Digest: Going green?

by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from the Ridge.
Face it, “Green” is the new hue. If you aren’t thinking, speaking, walking and acting green then you’re just not in the proper shade of fashion.
Some companies have posted “Think Green!” as their new corporate motto and dozens have now proclaimed themselves the makers of the green car, the green shopping bag, and the green home builder.
Our presidential candidates occasionally
