Letter to the Editor

Greetings and Salutations,

In my last letter I introduced you to a grassroots movement called Convention of States.  Hopefully you’ve taken a few minutes and checked out the website conventionofstates.com. If you have I want to say thank you!  If you haven’t yet, then what are you waiting on?  People from all across the country are educating themselves on our movement and most importantly on Article V of the

Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor,

I, for one, appreciate all of the effort and hard work that have gone into the process of preparing for the badly needed new water plant system for the City of Gallatin.

You will have your critics for years to come and your benefactors, too, but none will know what it takes to make the hard decisions you have made.

The following quote from Robert Graves reminds me

Amendment 4: No Sales Tax on Services

by State Rep. J. Eggleston

Only a few more weeks remain until the Nov. 8 election.  Unless you are big fan of political commercials, yard signs, mudslinging, and robocalls, you are ready to for it all to be over.  Patience.  The end is near.

Amendment 4 proposes to prevent any future laws that would create a sales tax on services at the state, county, or city level.  The actual language

Capitol Perspectives: Reporters are not Liars 

By Phill Brooks

My columns usually seek to provide an historical perspective to Missouri public policy.

But I would be remiss if I did not react to the attacks by Donald Trump’s campaign against my colleagues.

It has become serious enough that the international Committee to Protect Journalists took the unprecedented step in early October to declare Trump “an unprecedented threat to the rights of journalists.”

Like CPJ, I’m not

SpikeThe origins of Halloween are obscure and mixed. So, how do you plan to celebrate next Monday?

On the one hand, folk legend reports Halloween began with ghoulish rituals and subsequent witch hunts. On the other end of the spectrum, Halloween reportedly began with a reverent celebration of the memories of past Saints.

Since Nov. 1 is All Saints Day on the Christian calendar (which originated in pre-Christian Rome), people

Poosey Digest: Herb’s headin’ north

PooseyDigest_WPby Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

“I mean it, Freida. I’m goin’. If Hillary wins I’m goin!”

“Sounds good to me. Where are you goin’, Herb?”

“Canada. If that woman gets in office then I’m headin’ north.”

“How about you just take off now to avoid the rush? Herb, you wouldn’t make it a month in Canada.”

“Why not?”

“In the first place, Canadians are polite. I’ve never met

The Minimum Requirement

by Pastor Steve Ellison

 There are many now and in all past ages who think that they are followers of Jesus who actually have no idea what that might mean. Jesus addressed this issue in Matthew 7:20-23, “You will know them by their fruits. Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father who is in

Amendment 3 and Proposition A: Dueling Cig Taxes

by State Rep. J. Eggleston

In my last two capitol reports, I outlined Amendment 1: The Soil, Water & Parks Tax, and Amendment 2: Campaign Contribution Limits.  This week, we delve into something more involved – the dueling cigarette taxes of Amendment 3 and Proposition A – dueling because Amendment 3 is funded by big tobacco companies and Prop A is funded by little tobacco companies.

Amendment 3 (A3) would

Bringing accountability to Medicaid

by State Sen. Dan Hegeman
Year after year, the cost to the taxpayer of operating Missouri’s Medicaid program continues to increase at a rapid pace. While there are a number of factors that influence this increase in cost, two of the most driving factors are the most preventable: unnecessary emergency room visits and missed patient appointments at doctors’ offices.

Patients treating the emergency room as a replacement for a primary
