Dear Editor: In light of the budget issues

Rebecca J. Flaherty, CEO, Northwest Missouri Area Agency on Aging

In light of the budget issues facing Missouri, there is no question that everyone will need to tighten their belts. Our legislators are struggling with choices all of us wish they did not have to make; however, that is why we elected them.  Our expectation is that in making the difficult choices, they examine and understand the ramifications of their

Poosey Digest: A little more love

by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

She was beautiful, perhaps one of the loveliest young girls I’d ever seen… well over six feet tall, slender, dressed modestly in jeans, a sweater and pointed stocking hat. She was shopping at our local food mart with a lady who I assumed was her mother. As the two cruised the aisles communicating with each other via simple nods and smiles, I couldn’t

Drink from your own well

by Pastor Steve Ellison

Verses 15-23 of Proverbs Chapter 5 contain a series of related questions dealing with the issue of marital faithfulness. Really they are all part of the same question. The question is asked in three different ways in verses 16 and 20. In 17-19, God answers the question for us and gives us positive reasons for faithfulness.

After rephrasing the question in verse 20, God gives three

Letter to Editor: About the 165th street project

The review of the “$55,850 bid blossom” in last week’s North Missourian was very insightful but alarming in many ways. The article should prompt us, the taxpayer, to a more detail analysis of the various documents in an effort to draw some type of conclusion on how this situation could actually occur.

The special road district is comprised of elected officials who accept a position of fiduciary responsibility to the

Capitol Perspectives: A Missouri Senate lion

by Phill Brooks

This March, Missouri lost one of the most effective state senators I’ve seen, and one of the most complex, fascinating and dedicated. He was John Schneider, a St. Louis County Democrat, who died on March 2 at the age of 80.

Until voter-approved term limits kicked him out of office, he had served in Missouri’s Senate nearly one third of a century — from 1971 until 2002.

Poosey Digest: We must keep listening

by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

DATELINE: Boston, May 11, 1773. A group of demonstrators, some disguised as Native Americans, destroyed an entire shipment of tea owned by the East India Company. They boarded the ships and threw the chests of tea into Boston Harbor. The act was the culmination of a resistance movement throughout British America against the Tea Act that had been passed by the British Parliament

A clarification on minimum wage law

by State Rep. J. Eggleston

The federal minimum wage is currently at $7.25 per hour. Our Missouri minimum wage is adjusted based on the Consumer Price Index, and now stands at $7.70 per hour.

This week, the House dealt with a minimum wage issue not regarding the amount of the minimum wage, but whether individual towns and cities could set their own minimum wages different from the state’s minimum wage.

Take away St. Patrick?

If you’re one for taking Jesus Christ out of Christmas, then shouldn’t you also take St. Patrick out of St. Patrick’s Day?

After all, Saint Patrick’s Day became a holiday in the early 17th century to commemorate the arrival of Christianity in Ireland. St Patrick is said to have used the shamrock, a three-leaved plant, to explain the Holy Trinity to the pagan Irish. This story first appears in writing
