The real deal on Real ID

by State Rep. J. Eggleston

One of the issues that has come up at the capitol in the last two sessions is Real ID. This specifically involves the federal government’s threat to not allow Missourians on airplanes or military bases unless we change our system of issuing drivers licenses to comply with their wishes by January 2018.

We’re about to pay for unheeded budget warnings

by Phill Brooks

As legislators begin the arduous task crafting next fiscal year’s multi-billion dollar budget for state government, they are facing an historic challenge. Revenue shortfalls have forced the governor to propose some of the deepest spending cuts I can remember.

by Judge Brent Elliott

The unexpected death of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia has created great political fervor. Nearly every national news broadcast touches upon some issue related to his absence and the selection of his replacement.

Poosey Digest: The Department of Clarity

by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

Most of us had Mrs. Cory for a teacher. You may have called her Mrs. Smith, White or Jones, but mine was Cory. “Can I go to the bathroom, Mrs. Cory?”

“I don’t know. Can you?”

“I mean, may I go to the bathroom?”

“Mrs. Cory, my ma told me that. . .”

“Your what?”


“I don’t know any ma’s. If you

Off the editor’s spike: The sky isn’t really falling

Sometimes when sitting down to write this column it feels like I’m doomed to lay an egg. I mean, deadline’s approaching and the first batch of words spun into a collection of misthought was discarded (rightfully so, you should thank me!). Now I’m blank. I’m “laying an egg,” so to speak… you know what I mean.

I wonder, when did we start blaming the chicken?

The government collects that money from Missouri businesses, primarily the former employers of those who are now unemployed. So essentially, businesses have to pay people who no longer do any work for them.

The unemployed worker needs to be actively seeking

U.S. Representative Sam Graves issued the following statement after President Trump took a step towards permanently eliminating the Obama Administration’s Waters of the U.S. (WOTUS) rule.

Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor:

It’s getting real bad when a person can’t keep things in their own yard.

I just don’t understand why someone has to come into your own yard and steal something that you have worked for and paid for, or that a friend gave you. But a thief doesn’t care how you got it or where you got it. All they care about is just taking it.
