Dear Daviess County PWSD#1 Customers,

It has been brought to our attention, that a letter has been distributed to water district customers, essentially placing blame on the City of Pattonsburg for a large increase in district water rates.

It is none of our business how the district chooses to set up its rate structure. We feel that it IS our business to set the record straight about what the city

Religious freedoms vs gay rights may go to ballot

by State Rep. J. Eggleston

Previously, I outlined how after bills are filed they go through a two-layer committee process before it is possible they may be heard and debated on the House floor. In the early weeks of session, most of our work is in committee passing the good bills, rejecting the bad bills, and amending and improving the bills that are so-so to make them better.

Poosey Digest: Keep an eye on Helen

PooseyDigest_WPby Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

Ancient peoples used to cut chickens apart and read their entrails to forecast the future. Jemima Packington, a renowned mystic, throws asparagus spears into the air and tells the future by which way they land. Ailuromancy is the art of forecasting what’s ahead by observing your cat’s behavior, and I’m not kidding… rumpology is the study of people’s rear ends to predict what’s

The makings of community spirit

Spike_WPWe wasted almost 10 years since the last time we attended the Big Muddy Folk Music Festival at Boonville. It only comes around once a year. I can’t say exactly why we missed so many.

Homespun festivals are about making lifetime memories. What a waste. So, we renewed our misplaced passion for live music last weekend.

A lot of water has gone under the nearby Missouri River bridge (literally) since

Senate returns for second half of session

by State Sen. Dan Hegeman

Legislators has returned to Jefferson City after the end of the annual spring break. The break certainly appeared to help ease the tension that had slowed things down in the Senate over the last few weeks. Accordingly, the Senate is again working at its normal, deliberative pace.

The Senate took up several bills on the floor this week, including Senate Bill 698, legislation I’ve

Back to work

by State Rep. J. Eggleston

Mark Twain has been quoted as saying “No man’s life, liberty, or property are safe while the legislature is in session.” All of these were given a reprieve the week before Easter, as that marked the mid-point of the Missouri legislature’s session and the week of the House and Senate’s spring break.

Not every state has their legislative session at the same time. In Missouri,

From the Bench: 43rd Circuit creates new court (DTEC) in February

by Daviess County Associate Judge Daren Adkins, Guest Columnist

In 1993 the Jackson County Circuit Court (Kansas City/Independence) created the first drug court in Missouri. Today there are more than 100 drug court programs throughout our State.  Several state officials have proposed mandating the formation of such courts. Until this year the 43rd Circuit had not adopted its use.  Why our circuit postponed implementing this specialty court requires a little

Dear Editor:

A huge thank you for all the support of our March for Meals campaign.

The March 31, Community Luncheon was a wonderful ending to our month-long promotion of Meals on Wheels. I want to applaud the resolve of the Gallatin FBLA students, their sponsor Ms. Holcomb, and the staff of BTC Bank who braved the chilly March winds to serve 200 meals to our wonderful community supporters.

Opportunity Abounds in Agriculture

by Dan Cassidy

Spring is the time of year when high school seniors start counting down their remaining days at home, and parents ponder whether to turn their bedroom into a gym, storage closet or playroom for the family dogs.  In my case, the sting of a senior prank gone bad was soon replaced by the uncertainty of plans for the coming fall.  A career in agriculture was planned but
