Good Thinking: Back-to-school days

by Dr. Don Kuehle

"School days, school days,

Good old Golden Rule days;

Readin’ and Writin’ and ‘Rithmetic

Taught to the tune of the hickory stick."

School days have always been important days. Even for those of us who remember the "good old days," school shaped our lives. We recall when life was less complicated. We attended a one-room school. Discipline was strict; the hickory stick was used by the

Governor’s Column: Supporting a culture of life

by Governor Matt Blunt

When I campaigned for gov- ernor, I promised Missourians that I would work to further the cause of life and we have kept that promise by enacting impor- tant pro-life legislation every year I have served as governor. All life is precious and needs to be treated with the utmost dignity and respect.

Family Daze: The sound of “music”

by Debbie Farmer

by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from the Ridge.

The sweat was literally pouring off the teenagers as Herb and I drove by a de-tasseling crew in one of our nearby seed corn fields last week.

It was the tail-end of the tassel-pulling season, the kids were ankle-deep in mud, and the Midwest sun was combining with dog-drowning humidity to make it a truly miserable day to be working out-of-doors.

Post Scripts: Copy editors – a vanishing breed

by Joe Snyder

I have a friend who visited the Newseum in Washington, D.C. recently, a shrine to the newspaper industry. He said he tried to find the section on copy editing but only got blank stares in return. "Try Internet, TV and radio on the third floor."

"For copy editing? Newspaper copy editing?" He checked with a colleague. "News history on five," he said. Ouch. Copy editors are my
