We’re Just People

by Freida Marie Crump

If you don’t have indigestion when you wake up in the morning, one good dose of the world news will be enough to make your gut start to cramp. Missing jetliners, Russian land-grabbers, school shootings, meth labs, and global climate change are enough to ruin anyone’s morning toast and coffee. Last week I watched a wonderful actress perform in a play and when

The Smartest Man in the Country

Dw.cdrThe country’s smartest man has to live someplace in America. But would you believe in Mercer County here in North Missouri?

Some do.

The Public Broadcasting System (PBS) has launched a new TV series this week called The One Show. In its first edition, presenter Michael Mosley asks whether it is possible to raise your IQ, and discovers schemes that can apparently increase a person’s intelligence. In America, he visits

Letter to the Editor

Dear Darryl,

I appreciated the article on Jacob Heldenbrand in last weeks paper, however I find great irony in the life of Mr. Heldenbrand. It was his fathers testimony that “something told him things were not right”. It was this very thought of his fathers that saved his life. Without this “thought” he would have gone on with his chores and not returned in great haste to save Jacob. This

Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor:

Your “Editor’s note” at the end of Jimmy’s letter stated “Since this is the last print edition before Tuesday’s election….” You offered the city the opportunity to respond. That’s fair. However, you failed to extend the same courtesy to Jimmy for rebuttal in the ‘last edition.’

That’s not fair.

You then wrote a scurrilous editorial of character assassination, impugning my statements and facts as not trustworthy, even though

Good Thinking: Same Old Crowd

by Dr. Don Kuehle

Fire flamed against the night sky. The small church building was a total loss. Members of the congregation met, and decided to hold Sunday Services in the only available building in town, the local tavern. As the people assembled on the following Sunday morning, the tavern-owner’s pet parrot looked out over the crowd and proclaimed in a squawking tone: “New piano player. New emcee. New floor

Capitol Report: Tax Day 2014

by State Sen. Brad Lager

April 15th marks the day when the overwhelming majority of taxpaying Americans are required to have their taxes paid. This year, tax freedom day (the day when the nation as a whole has earned enough money to pay its total tax bill) comes three days later than 2013 and will be April 21st. So, every penny earned in this great nation since January 1 through

The ‘New’ Buy a Politician Plan

by Freida Marie Crump

PooseyDigest_WPGreetings from Poosey.

The average Joe on the street doesn’t know much about the Supreme Court and I have feeling that’s just dandy with the justices who sit there. We know that they line up once a year for a picture where they closely resemble the judges at a dill pickle contest, and they look like none of them have ever worked for Meals on Wheels.

No Bull: EPA Aggression Threatens Livestock Producers

by Congressman Sam Graves

Editor’s Note: This article was written on April 10 for the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association weekly newsletter. On Saturday, a guest column was published for the St. Joseph News-Press by the Administrator for EPA Region 7, who repeats the egregious claim that the EPA is merely trying to be helpful to farmers.

In North Missouri, many people are farmers, ranchers, and livestock producers. Here, people rely

Hagar and the Angel of the Lord

by Pastor Steve Ellison

Genesis 16 records the very first appearance of the Angel of the Lord to a human being. “Angel of the Lord” occurs 56 times in the Old Testament and 12 times in the New Testament.

The story of Hagar, a young, pregnant Egyptian servant girl provides the setting. The father of the baby was Abram, the servant’s owner/master. This made Sarai, the man’s wife, angry even
