Remember to Say “Thanks!”

We got a reminder last week on just how fragile the delivery of your newspaper can be.

Many things have to go right and right on time for delivery to be Anormal.@ There are certain stages that narrow the work flow to a precarious place, stages where there simply is no backup or APlan B.@ Things have to work. For instance, the imagesetter MUST work (at

In the seventh chapter of the gospel of Luke, a Pharisee named Simon invited Jesus to dine in his home. During the meal, an unnamed but notoriously sinful woman showed up uninvited. This woman put on a tremendous display of love and adoration toward the Savior. Jesus responded by telling her that her sins were forgiven because of her faith in Him.

This is a tremendous

Falling Leaves

The leaves have begun to fall. Relaxing in our outdoor swing, I observed the ground is covered with brown, brittle brush. Actually, I’ve seen only a few drifting down; but the covered ground tells me the air is raining leaves. The first falling leaves are sneaky. They don’t let you see them. Soon, however, they will fall in large quantities, a deluge of tree dandruff.

Animal Research Remains at Heart of Medical Progress

by Frankie L. Trull

Scientists are on the cusp of potentially the greatest advance in cardiac care since the heart transplant. Federal regulators just approved a device that allows physicians to replace faulty heart valves without opening patients’ chests up. The procedure could save the lives of countless patients who are unfit for surgery.

For their new lease on life, these patients can thank a few dozen pigs, who were

His Infatuation with Sterility

by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

My list of places that I can’t take husband Herb grows longer by the day. Today I added hospitals to my catalogue of banned spots.

PooseyDigest_WPWe were visiting a good friend who was mending her way out of some sort of surgery and for once Herbie thought he’d ride along. Normally the man avoids anything even vaguely medical, fearing that if he’s around

Letter to the Editor: Pastor Russ of Gallatin

Dear Editor:

Three years ago on Aug. 22, 2012, it was the worst day of my life. My father, Lee Robertson, passed away. I was hurt beyond belief. I had lost the man I loved and admired. I had no idea what I was going to do without a dad. I lived out of state. When I finally got to my dad it was the day before the funeral at

What Kind of Legacy Are You Building?

That can be a pretty heavy topic to discuss. Sometimes it’s an attention grabber on another request for you to bequeath money to something. Like a college education fund or a benevolent foundation. That’s all well and good, but that’s not what I’m thinking about. You don’t have to have money or some grandiose plan to make a lasting impression or to initiate a new tradition. And you don’t have

Labor for the Master

A pastor invited me to fill a church pulpit. It was Father’s Day. I mentioned I might bring a Father’s Day message. “Oh, that’s a secular holiday. We don’t pay any attention to those,” my colleague replied.

There are several secular celebrations absent from our Christian calendar. A wise pastor/church will take note of them. For example, soon we will celebrate Labor Day. Few things touch us more than our

What About Mom?

by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

PooseyDigest_WPShelly said, “Freida, it was the worst mistake I’ve ever made. I should have lied.” She was home from her first two weeks of college and her mother had asked her an innocent question: “Shelly, what do you consider ‘home’ now? College or here?” The poor girl didn’t even think. She simply blurted out, “Well, college I guess.” She told me, “Freida, the
