Hey, Let’s Party!

by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

PooseyDigest_WPIt happens every winter. You stare out the window at the endless parade of snow and cold and ice and wind and you purposely turn off the weather channel when they talk about the forecast for Los Angeles and Miami. That person you married starts looking way too familiar and even your rugs start staring back at you with a dreariness that could

Just Say ‘No’ to Mr. Kroenke

You could see this coming.

I believe “blackmail” is the appropriate word. There’s a power play underway to squeeze more of our tax dollars to benefit the already wealthy.

Billionaire Stan Kroenke, who owns the St. Louis Rams professional football team, announced a partnership to put a privately financed, 80,000-seat stadium in the Los Angeles area if voters there approve.

Dw.cdrThis stadium is part of plans to develop a 238-acre

The Sanctity of Life

by Pastor Steve Ellison

Most humans will concede in theory that life is sacred. However, many people will, under pressure, give in to ignoble desires and proclaim that exceptions ought to be made. God does not allow for that kind of reasoning; He is very strict and firm regarding the absolute sanctity of all human life.

Genesis 1:26 tells us that God planned to create man in His image. The

When I Am Afraid

“[Lord] when I am afraid, I will trust in You.” These words from the psalmist are certainly applicable for us today. If we didn’t already have sufficient reasons for concern, the events of the last few days have certainly given us cause.

ShepherdCalls_WPNot to downplay our current concerns; but it may help if we remember there have been bad days before. Sadness filled our house for days and months following

The Poosey Digest

by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

PooseyDigest_WPI’m not sure what to do with a 53-year-old can of green beans. There’s no expiration date since such labeling wasn’t required in 1962. In fact, I’d forgotten I had them until President Obama announced that we’d be ending our long-standing embargo with Cuba.

Once upon a scary time in our nation’s history, a round little Russian named Nikita sent a few shiploads

Capitol Perspectives: Making a Difference in the Legislature

by Phill Brooks

A few weeks before the start of this year’s legislative session, I was asked by a legislative staffer if I could remember when a wave of new legislators had made a difference. The question was asked in the context of the enormous gains voters handed Republicans in November.

To that staffer’s question, I had to think a bit. It is very difficult for a group of new

Letter to the Editor: Beliefs About Adam-ondi-Ahman

Dear Editor:

In response to our previous conversation regarding the December article “So… You Think You Know Daviess County,” I offer the following clarification of the question: Why does Adam-ondi-Ahman have significance to those of the Mormon faith?

It is not our belief that Adam was buried at Adam-ondi-Ahman or that it was the Garden of Eden as stated in the article. I hope the following will be a more

Remembering Dizzy

With windchill temperatures dipping below zero, it may seem odd to talk about baseball. But that’s one of the sport’s strengths – the promise of spring while in the grip of fierce winter. Another compelling thing about baseball is its history, woven into the fabric of our society.

Dizzy.

Dw.cdrWith this one word, you immediately travel back decades in time, at least for Cardinals baseball fans.

Dizzy Dean stands among
