The Writing on the Wall

Dw.cdrIt bothers me that so many of our public schools no longer teach cursive writing. I guess that’s because I relate back to the times of “B.C.” …before computers.

It’s true few of us handwrite very much of anything anymore; I know I don’t. I wouldn’t want to write this weekly column without the speed and convenience of a computer. And if you were forced to decipher my thoughts from

Good Thinking: Proud to Be an American

by Dr. Don Kuehle

Some things come my way that are soooo good that I have to pass them on! This is one of them.

Some time ago, a notice appeared in a Pakistani newspaper: “A reward will be given to anyone who kills an American, any American.” An Australian dentist, living in Pakistan, wrote this reply: “I’m writing this to let everyone know what an American is, so you

Capitol Report: A Surge at the Border

by Congressman Sam Graves

I’ve often said, “You can’t fix a leaky faucet with the water still running.” That’s not only good advice in your kitchen, but the same principle holds true for immigration reform and dealing with the current situation at our southwestern border. We’ve seen more than 50,000 unaccompanied alien children have crossed into the U.S. in recent months.

The reason we are witnessing this surge at the

Hummingbirds

ShepherdCalls_WPFor years I have hung hummingbird feeders so I can see the birds from inside the house. The speedy little fliers are not only beautiful they are fascinating. They can hover or fly backwards, even upside down and judging by their visits to my feeders, they are quite ravenous. As I watch I wonder if they know I am inside, in an air-conditioned dwelling watching them (with binoculars even) toil

Real Hope

by Pastor Steve Ellison

Those in the social sciences tell us that hope truly is necessary to the human existence. We have all heard stories of people in dire circumstances that gave up and died when help was near because they believed that there was no hope. We have also heard of people in similar circumstances who endured until they were rescued simply because they had reason to hope.

There’s Something About a Dreamer

by Freida Marie Crump

PooseyDigest_WPGreetings from Poosey.

Let’s hear it for the boy who’s so busy looking for four-leaf clovers that he misses the ball that’s hit to him in right field. Let’s hear it for the girl who completely misses what her math teacher was saying about Euclidean geometry because she was too fascinated with the patterns her teacher’s prism earrings were making on the far wall. Three cheers

Capital Report: Protecting Missourians’ Electronic Privacy

by State Sen. Brad Lager

Within the last year, we, as Americans, have learned that the National Security Agency (NSA) has been systematically collecting private electronic information on American citizens. This broad data grab included 10,000 email account holders who were not on any terrorist list, target list or even suspected of any wrongdoing. Yet, their personal emails, phone conversations, online photos and even resumes from job searches, were being

Hobby Lobby: Much to Ponder

Dw.cdrThe nearest Hobby Lobby is at St. Joseph, almost 50 miles away. There are 11 stores within a 100 miles of Gallatin. But that distance melted away when the U.S. Supreme Court struck down the Obama administration’s mandate to require private companies to provide contraceptives to employees.

Have you paid attention to the Hobby Lobby controversy and recent Supreme Court decision? How close to home does the Supreme Court ruling

The great crash

by Freida Marie Crump

PooseyDigest_WPGreetings from Poosey.

We were thrown into crisis mode. I had never seen my friends in such a panic. No fire, earthquake or flood could have affected our region so drastically, and the effects of the catastrophe still linger today in frayed nerves and irregular heartbeats. Last week the AT&T cell phone network went down and the world of some folks came to a crashing halt.
