Time to Fix Government

by Lee H. Hamilton

In 1965, the chairman of the powerful Ways and Means Committee, Wilbur Mills, brought legislation establishing Medicare and Medicaid to the floor of the U.S. House. That was my first year in Congress, and I remember vividly the moment when Mills came to the Democratic caucus to explain his plans.

Many of us had been swept into office in the 1964 Democratic wave that accompanied Lyndon

Talking Inanimately

by Freida Marie Crump

PooseyDigest_WPGreetings from Poosey.

I walked in on my friend June this week. She didn’t answer the door but this is Poosey… you just walk in. I thought I heard her voice in the back of the house so I assumed she had visitors, but when I walked into her den she was alone… talking. One woman sitting in a chair talking.

Capitol Report: Invest in Future by Supporting Teachers

by Congressman Sam Graves

Growing up as a student who passed through Tarkio schools, of course I didn’t realize it at the time, but educating the young is a passion that called many to go the extra mile for me and my future.

Ready or Not, Here Comes Tuesday

Dw.cdrMany words have been written these past weeks, proving that the complexities in financing city services defy brief explanation. Another letter to the editor in this last print edition before next Tuesday’s election offers more evidence.

I feel compelled to clarify what I hope is obvious. Space provided for views we do not endorse is the standard policy of this newspaper. The newspaper business is all about competition, including the

Letter to the Editor: More on City Utilities, Finances

Dear Editor:

An editorial in last week’s paper titled “A Positive Sales Tax Meeting” read in part:

“It takes money to make money. Do you believe this adage? On Tuesday, April 8, Gallatin voters will decide whether to actually put money to that truth. The vote will be on a half-cent sales tax. If it passes, a list of much needed improvements can be attempted, each of which promises to

Letter to the Editor: Still Caring About Gallatin

Dear Editor:

I just finished reading last week’s paper which came a little before noon. I read your column and also the mayor’s letter and about the small crowd who attended the meeting about the half cent sales tax. Gallatin is still our hometown and Joe and I plan to be buried in Brown cemetery before too long and hope there will be someone there to greet us. We personally

Capitol Report: Funding Higher Education

by State Sen. Brad Lager

Missouri’s post-secondary education system plays a critical role in our state’s economy. The degrees, courses, and programs offered throughout Missouri’s universities, colleges and technical schools enhance our workforce, bolster economic development, and allow us to compete in an ever-changing world. Therefore, as we look to the future, it is imperative that we have a top tier post-secondary education system in Missouri that is affordable and

Jesus and the Hypocrites

by Pastor Steve Ellison

The world says, “There are too many hypocrites in the church.” Jesus agrees.

In Matthew 21:18-19, Jesus defined hypocrisy, “Now in the morning, when He was returning to the city, He became hungry. Seeing a lone fig tree by the road, He came to it and found nothing on it except leaves only; and He said to it, No longer shall there ever be any fruit

Capitol Perspectives: Unfinished Business

by Phill Brooks

If you sense that Missouri government has become unable to resolve major state problems, take a look at the agenda facing your state lawmakers after they returned from their spring break. It’s a laundry list of lingering problems that have plagued the state for years without resolution:

- Finding solutions for unaccredited urban schools.

- Fixing the state’s broken school-funding system.

- Addressing the ballooning loss of
