E-Rate funding, budgeting for school broadband; superintendents comment

by Rep. J. Eggleston

For many years, we have all known that true high speed internet has been available in the big cities, but is a challenge to find in our rural areas. When I met with the delegates from the Great Northwest Days earlier this session, they reminded me that getting high speed internet to our smaller communities was a top priority.

Having a tech and small business background,

Poosey Digest: Alas, those days are gone

by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

I love my neighbors. I really do. They’re a youngish family with teenage kids and just looking across the yard and watching them grow has been a thrill for Herb and I. In fact, Herb would never admit it, but he has emotionally adopted their oldest girl, Mindy. The man can fall asleep at the drop of a hat, but when his young

In pursuit of excellence

If you know Garrison Keillor, then you know the radio show “Prairie Home Companion” and the fictional town of Lake Wobegon. It’s the setting for many of Keillor’s stories and novels, described as a small rural town in central Minnesota …but the humorous spoof might well be in Northwest Missouri or Daviess County or any rural hometown “out here on the edge of the prairie.”

Keillor correctly pokes fun at

Full steam ahead…

UPDATE: Legislation proposing to return the historic 1920s Delta Queen riverboat to Missouri sailed through the Senate (85-12) and now heads to the House of Representatives for approval.

As noted in a previous column, the Delta Queen was a wooden steamboat built in the 1920s. It carried three U.S. Presidents and various other dignitaries among its thousands of passengers and also served as a naval ship during World War II.

Mudslinging the budget

Editor’s note:  The Missouri Democratic Party is circulating information criticizing the Trump Administration budget proposal. Their protrayal of the budget process claims cuts to the USDA would jeopardize financing for six water infrastructure projects in North Missouri, including the construction of a new water treatment plant to provide an adequate supply of potable water to the citizens of Gallatin and an upgrade for a wastewater treatment facility at Gilman City.

A trio of bills of primary focus

by State Rep. J. Eggleston

Last week I reported that the legislature would at some point in the second half of session likely take up Prevailing Wage and Real ID. Another “biggie” that I did not mention was Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (PDMP). It turned out the House tackled all three of those bills in the first week back from break.

Prevailing Wage is another of the labor reform bills.

The Truth about Brush Laws in Daviess County

As with every story there are two sides, and this one is no exception. The meeting

reported by the North Missourian on March 29,201:7, was heavily weighted by the views of

a few men who control the money for road repairs in our county. Unfortunately, hundreds

of us have been harassed and bullied for many years by these overzealous, ignorant

politicians who cared more about furthering their careers and protecting

Poosey Digest: The Royal Flush

by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

The summer of 1787 was an especially hot one in Philadelphia. So, perhaps the delegates the first Constitutional Convention can be excused for missing a few things. In fact, the situation was confusing from the outset.

The delegates thought they were meeting to revise the Articles of Confederation, but a few radicals, like Alexander Hamilton and James Madison, came up with a scheme
