Good Thinking: Autumn Gold

by Dr. Don Kuehle

Fall is here. The trees are dressed in their colorful garb: green and orange and yellow and gold. Fall reminds us that this world is a place of beauty. Fall reminds us of what is most important in life; and of what is not important.January 1848! Gold is discovered at Sutter’s Fort, California! The news

Capitol Perspectives: The Lion of the Lobbyists

by Phill Brooks

This past summer, Missouri lost the undisputed lion of our state’s lobbyists – John Britton.

In his prime, Britton was one of the state’s most powerful figures. But there was much more to Britton. He also was a mentor, teacher, friend and adviser to generations of Missouri public leaders.

His funeral was a demonstration of that depth, bringing together past and present government leaders from across decades.

Progress Can Be More Than What You See

Dw.cdrProgress and change are evident in Gallatin.

After staring at fire-charred debris for six months, the now vacant lot on the east side of the square is (finally) cleaned up. Property owners ponied up thousands of dollars to improve the eyesore this past week and the word on the street is encouraging.

Julie Reynolds says her flower shop building will come down once cleared of all worthy interior items. On

Less is More

ShepherdCalls_WPThe television program was about a hoarder. The lady had so much stuff her house could no longer contain it. She kept everything — even empty tissue rolls and plastic bread wrappers. She had grown up with very little; and in adulthood, she determined to keep everything she could get her hands on. When her living conditions became dangerous, her children had her declared incompetent, sent her to a nursing

Heart Slave

by Pastor Steve Ellison

Exodus 21 and Leviticus 15 both describe a situation that is foreign to us. It offends our modern sensibilities. It involves slavery or more accurately, indentured servitude. However, this situation illustrates a marvelous truth about God.

Exodus 12 and Leviticus 15 give guidelines for one Hebrew being a slave to another Hebrew. The slave would serve for a specific period of time (6 years), thus we

Good Thinking: October is a Lady

by Dr. Don Kuehle

October is a beautiful lady. She invites us to visit awhile, to learn from her the secrets of the good life.

“O suns and skies and clouds of June; and flowers of June together.

Ye cannot rival for one hour October’s bright blue weather.” — Helen Hunt Jackson

October reminds us that there is bounteous beauty in the world, if only we would take the time

Defining Obscenity

by Freida Marie Crump

PooseyDigest_WPGreetings from Poosey.

Do Republicans eat more than Democrats or do they just order more expensive food? I have a feeling that the 8,500 children who are going to die today don’t care. They just want a meal. That comes out to one child every 10 seconds. Yes, you’ve heard it before.

Since January of 2011 the members of the U.S. House of Representatives and the

Reruns Marking Time

Dw.cdrTime moves on. We are given reminders, constantly.

The other night I stumbled onto one of those half-hour infomercials on late night television and found myself watching the whole thing. It hawked a complete set of “The Ed Sullivan Show” episodes, “yours for just five easy payments.” I wasn’t tempted. But I did get a kick out of seeing how many of the guest stars and performers I recognized. I

Capitol Report: Affordable Healthcare Act

U.S. Representative Sam Graves, the House Small Business Committee chairman, released the following statement last Friday after voting in favor of H.R. 3522, the Employee Healthcare Protection Act:

“We all remember President Obama’s promise that if you like your health care plan, you can keep your health care plan. Unfortunately for the American people, this has turned out to be yet another in a long line of empty promises at
