Post Scripts: Happy New Year and reminiscing the past

Christmas is over and Santa was good to us. The most unusual gift we received was a copy of a two cent stamp with a train engine on it, that I had given to my granddaughter Molly, a long time ago.

As you know I had quite a nice stamp collection at one time. It is a wood burned replica of the stamp on a board 10 by 11 inches.

Letter to the Editors: Clarification on school cedits

Dear Editor:

There is a statement in the opening of the article [North Daviess decides about credits, full-year courses] about credits being transferred for students. The credits in question are not eighth grade credits, but high school credits earned while in eighth grade as is clearly reflected in the high school transcript that the school received when Caitlyn enrolled for ninth grade.

Cut to the Chase: Memories made from trees

by Rebecca French Smith

As I look at taking the Christmas tree down this week, I am thinking it will make nice mulch for someone, or a great home for some well-deserving fish. But regardless of our tree’s afterlife, it has helped create memories that will last for years.

It seems like every year a great debate springs up over Christmas tree preferences: live vs. artificial. For many years, the

Poosey Digest: Bye, bye cell phones, IPods, IPads, IPoofs, IPiffles, and I-rritations

Greetings from Poosey.

It’s an old Russian custom from the pre-Soviet days: at the end of every year the residents of many villages or derevnias would make an inventory of their houses. They’d pick out anything that they wanted to get rid of and pile it in the middle of the town square. The heap of discarded household items would remain their until New Year’s Day and if the old

Good Thinking: The wisdom of Father Time

by Dr. Don Kuehle

The cartoon highlights the front page of the paper: old Father Time meeting the baby New Year at the beginning of another year.

As they meet and pass each other, I wonder what words went between them? Did Father Time wish New Year well? Did he offer the baby New Year words of wisdom? Did the New Year ask about the past? Did baby New Year

Capitol Report: Learning from the past while planning for the future

by State Sen. Brad Lager

While the holiday season is a time to celebrate with family and friends, it is also an opportunity to reflect on where we have been and decide what we want to achieve in the year ahead. As 2011 comes to a close, I am reminded of a year filled with economic uncertainty, political unrest around the globe, and significant events that will forever change the

On snow white wings, trumpeter swans are back

Trumpeter swans offer advantages for people who enjoy watching wildlife in winter. They’re big, beautiful, bright white and they will often frequent easily accessible lakes at public conservation areas or city parks.

The trumpeters, once considered almost extinct, are the largest native waterfowl species in North America with wing spans up to seven feet, long necks, snow white plumage on adults and graceful motions on the water.

Trumpeters are being

Snowy owls rare to Missouri are visiting the Kansas City area

Snowy owls from the Arctic tundra are being spotted in the Midwest this winter in uncommonly large numbers, including three at Smithville Lake in the Kansas City area.

The large, white owls with black markings are rarely seen in this area and only when their winter food supply is short in their natural habitats to the north. A single snowy owl in the region is big news to birders.

But
