by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.
If your blood needs a bit of curdling you can always skip the next horror picture out of Hollywood and simply get your car washed.

Not many folks wash their own vehicles nowadays with automatic carwashes on every block. So, Herb and I have happily joined the lazy legions who’ll pay 10 bucks to get a soak, shine and chamois without streaks. Fact

U.S. Representative Sam Graves issued the following statement after the Supreme Court today ruled that President Obama’s 2014 executive order on amnesty is unconstitutional.

Feeling red, white and true blue

Spike_WPWith the July 4th holiday falling on a Monday, the question of the week is what to do with a 3-day weekend?

For much of my life there was no question. Firecracker day was spent in the hayfield. Life is simple when there are no options.

The only question was whether the last windrow got rolled before the evening’s first firecracker wick was lit. And the focus wasn’t nearly as

Good Thinking: Tragedy in Orlando

by Dr. Don Kuehle

We mourn the tragic shooting of 49 people in Orlando, Fla. As Christians, we hold that all life is sacred because every life was created by a holy God. Every life has value, regardless of a person’s beliefs or lifestyle.

The tragedy is that the lives of these 49 people was cut short by an act of violence. The killer believed in a god-of-death; his religious

Capitol Perspectives: Missouri Capitol security missteps

by Phill Brooks

This summer, statehouse discussions have resumed on plans to enhance security at the state Capitol. One idea would use the nearby Transportation Department building as a screening site for visitors to enter the statehouse through a tunnel.

It’s the latest in a checkered history of efforts to address Capitol security I’ve seen over the decades.

The first I saw was a video camera installed into a wall

The importance of words

by Pastor Steve Ellison

The first 11 verses of James chapter 3 tell of the power of the tongue. Mostly they describe the wickedness and destructive power of our speech. Sadly, these verses point out our inability to keep our tongues in check and the wretched consequences of our words. These ideas were not original with James. He was only reiterating what he had certainly heard from Jesus.

Poosey Digest: Blowfish just seem to …blow!

by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

A strange creature, the blowfish. When he wants to terrorize his fellow fish he gulps down water to make himself look threatening, then expands his appearance to three times his actual size. In other words, he’s two-thirds fake fish.

Maybe it’s been the heat of this early summer, but I’ve been giving a great deal of thought to blowfish in recent days. Herb
