Memorial Day Remembrances

by Pastor Steve Ellison

 The Civil War, our bloodiest war, gave birth to holidays honoring those who gave their all for their country. In 1868, the United States set aside May 30th to remember their great sacrifice. Since 1971, in classic American seeking of self, we have chosen to take a three day weekend by choosing to take a day off from work on the last Monday in May.

The Poosey Digest

By Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

This is an open letter to anyone under 25 years of age. In brief: don’t be discouraged. If this is the first time you’ve actually paid much attention to a political campaign it would be easy and understandable to think that presidential elections are the hemorrhoid of our democracy. I wouldn’t blame you a bit if you got the idea that hate, venom

Letter to the Editor: Feds have it all wrong; it’s all about equipment

Recently President Obama sent out a letter through the U.S. Department of Education to schools, giving guidance to help schools ensure the civil rights of transgender students. The gist of the letter states that any student has the right to use the bathroom and dressing room of the sex the student identifies with, regardless to what sex the child was born. No age was identified as an age that the

Letter to the editor

Dear Editor:

Some of the people in our little village of Altamont don’t stop at the stop signs and they speed right on through them. We don’t have law enforcement in our village at all times. The people know this. What if they hit a child that is riding their bicycle or their little four-wheelers? It would be too late to even slow down then.

Some people think it if

Capitol Perspectives: Missouri’s legislative session has not ended quite yet 

by Mark Hughes

Lawmakers have headed back to their districts, but the 2016 session of the Missouri General Assembly is not yet over. Not quite. There are still several days and a bit of work to be done before most of the bills passed this year can become law.

Since at least the Missouri Constitution of 1875, no bill can become law in Missouri until it is signed by the

Poosey Digest: A Top 10 for graduates

by Freida Marie Crump

Dear Graduate,

It’s that time …your time. For a precious few days you’ll be treated like the prince or princess and that’s okay. It won’t last, but that’s okay. Then whether you’re leaving the comfy nests called home and high school or the ivied walls of your college you’ll be a bit more on your own. I admire those who think they’ve prepared you with lectures,

Another year, another ‘Big Squeeze’

Spike_WPRandom thoughts here, mostly personal.

I miss Paul Harvey on the radio. I’m not entirely sure I believed everything the news commentator from Chicago put over the airwaves, but his was a unique voice often talking about familiar things.

Harvey regularly spotlighted couples enjoying years and years of marriage in what he called “The Tournament of Roses.” I don’t recall ever personally knowing any couple he saluted, but it always

Capitol Perspectives: Missouri’s gaming tax trend focuses on fantasy

by Mark Hughes

Final action on major bills is often left until the end of legislative sessions, and this was especially true in Missouri’s 2016 session. With a range of pending proposals encompassing issues from photo voter ID to union payroll deductions and a tax boost for highways, some seemed a bit surprised when Gov. Jay Nixon cited regulation of online fantasy sports gambling as his priority going into the

Good Thinking: No Comparison

by Dr. Don Kuehle

Everyone worships a God. Every person on earth has something/someone who is their #1 priority — their God. What I hear in today’s society disturbs me greatly: “All Gods are the same” and “It doesn’t make any difference which God you worship, or if you worship any God at all.” Wrong. Not true.

It’s time for a comparison: the One True God vs. the lesser Gods.
