Dear Editor:

When our village went into small town organization we were told that our ordinances had to be up-to-date, not add more. Our ordinance advisor, Mrs. Lusk, stated it would be cheaper to join the organization and let her do it instead of someone else. Quote: We could get out of organization when ordinances were done. That has been four years ago. It has cost the village more money

A problem with Bernieconomics

Dw.cdrI realize I don’t exactly have the ear of presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, but a gimmick he’s working in his campaign bid gripes me. The Democrat Senator from Vermont suggests that the government should guarantee student loans, to assure access to higher education for all Americans.

Dear Editor,

As concerned members of the Village of Jameson, we want to clarify a few things about our Village Ordinances.  We have never requested that all of the ordinances be thrown out!  Ordinances are essential to the proper maintenance of a village, town, city, county, state, etc.

The majority of the ordinances were passed without the villagers knowing what was going on.  When they realized what was happening they

How did we get here?

by Stephen R. Miller, Chairman – Missouri Highways & Transportation Commission

The end of the year is a time for reflection and hopes for the future. I am often asked how Missouri has come to find itself in the midst of a transportation funding crisis. It is a story of both vision and short-sightedness.

In the 1920s, Missouri leaders had the foresight to recognize the dramatic impact and potential the

PooseyDigest_WPby Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

The New Year is a good time to take sort of a mental laxative and clear your mind of the triumphs and just plain umphs of the previous 12 months. Like you need another year-end list, but here goes from Poosey:

School attendance matters: make attendance a priority

by Terry Mayfield, North Daviess Superintendent

As we begin the new year and second semester, I hope everyone with a student at North Daviess R-3 will commit to a shared resolution of making school attendance a top priority for 2016.  At North Daviess R-3 we are concerned about our students’ attendance and monitor it closely.

Attendance is one of the ways the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education evaluates school

Congress gets it right

by Brad Jones

Small business owners deal with a great amount of uncertainty in the day to day operation of their company. To get into business in the first place, a person must be willing to tolerate a good deal of risk. But even the most confident owner has their limits and Congress has been pushing them for years now, wreaking havoc on expense planning.

Now, Congress has finally fixed
