Either Come In or Stay Out!

We jumped the gun on the Fourth of July. Last weekend was a big birthday bash where extended family members lumped three birthdays together by fudging on the exact dates just a bit. Good times, good food B and now for another promising weekend of fun with Firecracker Day falling on Saturday this year.

You can read just about anything about any subject, but somewhere somebody has tallied up what

Independence Day 2015

In a few days, we will again celebrate the birthday of our nation. The United States of America will be 239 years old. As you might expect, our great country has experienced many ups and downs. As soon as we solve one problem, another one rises. That’s life. It happens to nations and individuals alike. Repetitive national crises cause some to lose hope. As we prepare to celebrate our national

Victory Over Temptation

by Pastor Steve Ellison

I am not sure that I am ready to declare that temptation to evil is good but it is certainly clear that it is often used by God for good.

Immediately following the baptism of Jesus, the Holy Spirit sent Him into the wilderness for the express purpose of being tempted by Satan. Because Jesus quotes from Deuteronomy chapter eight during the temptations and because both

A Man with Passion

by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

I can’t think of the Fourth of July without remembering him. Hoolie McBride was the town carpenter, mechanic, roof fixer, dog tamer, and sometimes Bingo caller at our annual Burgoo. He was a scruffy little fellow who managed to always sport about six days of beard, and some said that he wore his oil-stained pants for so many days that he had no

Retiring a Favorite Beach Towel

Dw.cdrJune means vacation time for many families. So, if that time comes for you, what souvenirs do you choose to remember those good times?

Souvenirs on my shelves are scant. Family vacations that actually placed us in some hitherland beyond the scope of a long weekend were very infrequent. Some of the trinkets I have are gifts from others. One of the souvenirs I particularly remember buying for myself isn’t

Letter to the Editor: Hesitation About Hog Farms

Dear Editor:

The purpose of writing this letter is to express our concerns regarding the proposed construction of a Concentrated Animal Feeding Operation (CAFO) adjacent to Highway W in the Hickory Creek area of Grundy County.

In close proximity to this planned CAFO, about 3.1 miles SW, lies the Poosey Conservation Area. Many of us in this part of Missouri and beyond are much aware of the varied recreational opportunities

Fatherhood

by Pastor Steve Ellison

God has given much authority, and even more responsibility to fathers. Social workers study extensively and consistently report that good fathering is of the utmost importance in the well-being of children. Therefore it is right and good that we ought to celebrate good fathers. Furthermore, we should encourage, train, exhort, and equip those fathers who are lacking. This will bless the children and benefit society. However,

Let’s Go Postal

by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

I can remember as a youngster running in to get the mail and hearing the peep-peep of baby chickens in the back room. An indulgent postmaster would let me go back to look at the chicks peeking their little beaks out of the round holes in the shipment box. I recently read where it was only last year when some legislative body made

Miracle or Tragedy

It had been a long, hard day. Nellie Frances was preparing dinner. She said it would be a few minutes. I laid down on the bed to rest and fell sound asleep for just a minute. The phone rang; I answered. The party calling had some information I had requested. I was trying to write it down, but I couldn’t see.

Something’s wrong here, I thought as I squinted looking
