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

Insurance coverage despite ‘Step Therapy’

by State Rep. J. Eggleston

Consider this: Let’s say you have a disease or condition that requires regular medication for treatment, but there are several possible meds that might work ranging from an inexpensive generic to a very costly specialty medication. Involved in your situation are you, your doctor writing the prescription, and the payer buying the meds — probably your insurance company.

The goal is to find the least

Capitol Perspectives: Missouri’s role in Korean Conflict must never be lost in history

 by Mark D. Hughes

On June 25, 1950, an estimated 25,000 troops of the North Korean People’s Army crossed the 38th Parallel, invading the Republic of South Korea and triggering the first military action of the Cold War.

The battleship USS Missouri, on whose decks World War II had ended fewer than five years earlier, was already on its way to support U.N. troops on the Korean coast. Missouri’s own

Poosey Digest: Listening to Miss Yacker

by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

I don’t embarrass easily, but I was embarrassed. I’d just reached down to pick up one of those rotisserie chickens at the supermarket when a voice behind me said, “No, don’t take that.” The voice sounded nothing like God so I reached down again and I heard, “You don’t need that much.” This was a quandary. Either my guardian angel had just flown

Fathers, the hour has come

by Pastor Steve Ellison

For centuries Christians and non-Christians alike were in perfect agreement about the importance of fathers to the well-being of families, neighborhoods, communities, cities, states, and countries. In recent times, that truth has been conveniently ignored in order to keep from casting aspersions on “alternate lifestyles.”

As the Church, we need to hold high the mantle of fatherhood. We need to raise our expectations of fathers. We

Livestock Liability Protection

by State Rep. J. Eggelston

I’d like to share more details on several of the new laws.  This week let’s we look at a bill for farmers regarding Livestock Liability Protection, which was filed by Rep. McGaugh (R-Carrollton) in the House as HB1827 and by Sen. Parson (R-Bolivar) in the Senate as SB844.

Let’s say you are a rancher, and you have a herd of cattle in a pasture.  The

Capitol Perspectives:  Road funding haunts state whose native son built America’s interstates

by Mark D. Hughes

Jefferson City — the Capital of Missouri — was sited roughly in the center of the state high on the bluffs along the Missouri River. At the time the river served as a transportation avenue for those who would come there for business or government matters.

Just over the hill from the great Missouri River and the state Capitol is a highway system that stretches from

Good Thinking: A good word for poor ol’ Dad

by Dr. Don Kuehle

A little boy was asked, “What’s the difference between Mother’s Day and Father’s Day?” Without hesitation he responded:  “The presents don’t cost as much.”

President Woodrow Wilson proclaimed, in 1914, that the second Sunday in May be observed as Mother’s Day. It wasn’t until 1972 that Father’s Day became a national holiday. Poor old dad!

Edith Swanson wrote the truth when she said:
