The Shepherd Calls: Labor for the Kingdom

by Dr. H. Wade Paris

The first Labor Day holiday in the United States was celebrated on Tuesday, Sept. 5, 1882, in New York City.  Originally, it was a day to celebrate our workers and seek ways to improve their working conditions.   Over time it was designated as a national holiday to be celebrated on the first Monday of September.  The designation of that date has come to mark the

Let No One Deceive You

by Pastor Steve Ellison

 Ephesians 5:1-6 is a sobering passage, “Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children; 2 and walk in love, just as Christ also loved you and gave Himself up for us, an offering and a sacrifice to God as a fragrant aroma. 3 But immorality or any impurity or greed must not even be named among you, as is proper among saints; 4 and there must

Poosey Digest: Let’s hear it for the Boomers!

by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

“Do not go gentle into that good night, Old age should burn and rave at close of day; Rage, rage against the dying of the light.”

When the poet Dylan Thomas wrote these lines in 1947 I have no idea how he knew so many people ’round Poosey. He drank a good deal so maybe he was just imagining things, but more and

Rep. Tony Dugger resigns, MAF calls for a more robust revolving door law

In response to Rep. Tony Dugger’s resignation from the House of Representatives, Ryan Johnson, President of the Missouri Alliance for Freedom, called on the Missouri Legislature to follow through with its ethics reform priorities and to strengthen the new revolving door law.

“Tony Dugger’s resignation from the House does not make him a bad person. It does, however, illustrate the need for a more robust fix to the problem that

Thoughts about negative campaigning

by State Rep. J. Eggleston

Like most of you, I used to get my information about the candidates on the ballot from TV ads and mailers. As an elected representative, I now have more opportunities to meet and visit with the candidates in person.

In the run up to the primary, I would use these visits to ask direct questions and evaluate not only what a candidate would say, but

Olympic champions for life

Editor's SpikeIt’s a wonderful time to be a sports fan.

Football season is upon us. The Chiefs look like contenders. With a new coach at the helm, whatever happens at Mizzou will be interesting. The Bearcats seem poised to defend another national DII championship. Our Bulldogs have a lock here at home on Friday nights.

The KC Royals defy elimination (go figure).

But for the past couple of weeks nothing commanded

Poosey Digest: We still need heroes

PooseyDigest_WPby Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

I always favored Batman over Superman. The guy in blue tights with a big “S” on his chest seemed to cheat a bit having super powers at his disposal whereas Batman didn’t have the advantage of x-ray vision, super-human strength, and the ability to fly. The hero with the bat ears had to rely only upon his wits, a pretty cool car, and

Capitol Perspectives: The dignity of Missouri’s capitol

by Phill Brooks

The recent conviction of 22 protesters whose 2014 demonstration in the Missouri Senate visitors’ gallery chamber forced the Senate to recess is an indication of how different Missouri’s Capitol is from the U.S. Capitol I covered in 1972.

For an hour on May 6, 2014, the protesters sang and chanted against the legislature’s refusal to expand Medicaid. Those convicted in the Cole County Court of misdemeanor trespass

Good Thinking: Back to School days

by Dr. Don Kuehle

 “School days, school days, good old Golden Rule days;

 Readin’ and Writin’ and ‘Rithmetic

 Taught to the tune of the hickory stick.”

School days have always been important days. Even for those of us who remember the “good old days”, school shaped our lives. We recall when life was less complicated. I attended a one-room school. Discipline was strict; the hickory stick was used by the
