Good Thinking: Tragedy in Orlando

by Dr. Don Kuehle

We mourn the tragic shooting of 49 people in Orlando, Fla. As Christians, we hold that all life is sacred because every life was created by a holy God. Every life has value, regardless of a person’s beliefs or lifestyle.

The tragedy is that the lives of these 49 people was cut short by an act of violence. The killer believed in a god-of-death; his religious

Capitol Perspectives: Missouri Capitol security missteps

by Phill Brooks

This summer, statehouse discussions have resumed on plans to enhance security at the state Capitol. One idea would use the nearby Transportation Department building as a screening site for visitors to enter the statehouse through a tunnel.

It’s the latest in a checkered history of efforts to address Capitol security I’ve seen over the decades.

The first I saw was a video camera installed into a wall

10 questions we celebrate (Can you correctly answer this Citizenship Test?)

by State Rep. J. Eggleston

Happy birthday America! Independence Day is upon us, and I hope you and your family enjoy our nation’s most patriotic holiday. It can be easy to forget how blessed we are to live in a nation with so much bounty and freedom, and it would be a shame if we were to take those blessings for granted.

Celebrating our Independence

by State Sen. Dan Hegeman

In just a few days, citizens throughout our great nation will join together in celebration of the United States of America’s 240th birthday. As we stand on the brink of another new year in the life of our comparatively young nation, I ask everyone to join me in reflecting on how far we have come as an American people and what work remains to

The importance of words

by Pastor Steve Ellison

The first 11 verses of James chapter 3 tell of the power of the tongue. Mostly they describe the wickedness and destructive power of our speech. Sadly, these verses point out our inability to keep our tongues in check and the wretched consequences of our words. These ideas were not original with James. He was only reiterating what he had certainly heard from Jesus.

Poosey Digest: Blowfish just seem to …blow!

by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

A strange creature, the blowfish. When he wants to terrorize his fellow fish he gulps down water to make himself look threatening, then expands his appearance to three times his actual size. In other words, he’s two-thirds fake fish.

Maybe it’s been the heat of this early summer, but I’ve been giving a great deal of thought to blowfish in recent days. Herb

Dear Editor,

Some years ago, when I was teaching (and directing plays) at North Daviess, someone gave me this old photo. It looks as if it was taken in the gym at the Coffey building.

The area under the apron of the stage appears to be made of blocks similar to the gym there, and the footlights look like the ones we had there. The footlights were kind of unusual

Repeating falsehoods delude truth

Spike_WPLast Friday Liz and I enjoyed our first trip to Kauffman Stadium in two years, courtesy of our kids providing the tickets as a gift. The Royals were playing the Detroit Tigers.

Playing against Detroit reminded me of something recently read involving racism but more about deluding truth not just in baseball but in life.

One of the greatest baseball players of all time, and king of the so-called Deadball

Against taxation by citation

by State Sen. Dan Hegeman

Missouri lawmakers continued working during the 2016 legislative session to address the systemic failures of some of Missouri’s municipal courts. As part of our ongoing effort to bring an end to “taxation through citation,” the Legislature passed and sent to the governor Senate Bill 572.

This measure adds non-moving violations to the calculation for annual general revenue limits that can come from fines and
