The Poosey Digest: Shopping

by Freida Marie Crump

PooseyDigest_WPGreetings from Poosey.

It was years ago but I remember it like yesterday. I walked into our local grocery store, the old type of “general” store that sold just about everything to get you by and put my purchases on the counter. The store had only one employee, the owner, Cloetta. It was in the pre-barcode days so she looked at the price of each item

Stop stealing

by Pastor Steve Ellison

Many of you remember days when you did not lock your house or your car. For most of us that time has long since passed.

It seems that the new morality is that if you don’t get caught then you are not guilty and there is nothing wrong with what you did. However, I must remind you that thievery is not a new issue.

Missouri Ballot Initiatives: A Tale of Two Tobacco Taxes 

by Mark Hughes 

Missouri’s cigarette tax, at 17 cents-per-pack, is the nation’s lowest. This makes the tax an irresistible target for advocates who want to raise money for public uses.

This year two initiative petitions to raise the cigarette tax have been approved by the secretary of state, circulated by supporters and turned in to have signatures verified by local election authorities.

Missourians approved the initiative process in 1908 to

Challenges in funding Missouri’s highway system

by State Sen. Dan Hegeman

Maintaining and building infrastructure is one of the few fundamental responsibilities of government. That is why the Missouri State Senate once again spent a significant amount of time this session debating various proposals for how best to address the funding challenges facing Missouri’s highway system.

This debate is critical. The Show-Me State is home to the seventh largest highway system in the country, with over

Letters to the Editor

To the members of First Christian Church and the Gallatin Community,

As you may read in this week edition of the Gallatin North Missourian and on the case.net website,  the Missouri Department of Revenue has filed a Certificate of Lien against the Gallatin First Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) for failing to properly file payroll taxes.   This lien was filed in error by the Missouri Department of Revenue after our

Hey, I’ve got the answers. Now, what was the question?

Editor's SpikeBirthdays do that to you. Today another one is hitting me in the head. So, it’s time for a bit of reflection. Don’t fret. It’s just an annual thing that I soon get over.

I have a hazy memory of a younger me who used to know it all — or at least a lot of it. This is common among teenagers throughout America. The malady exposes itself about the

Poosey Digest: Jefferson would smile

by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

Thomas Jefferson was not against an aristocracy but believed that virtue and talent instead of wealth should determine the elite class. It should be noted that Jefferson seldom visited airports.

I recently spent a good deal of time in a variety of airline terminals, slowly understanding the meaning of the word “terminal.” I thought I’d spent my life living, eating, sleeping and walking

Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor:

Our village is going down hill fast. The people are getting away with everything they can. One person wanted to bring a trailer into the village to live in. Board said no. Another person pulled one into the village, hooked it up, and is living in it. Board hasn’t said anything.

There are dogs running around the streets. Nothing has been done about it. They are ruining people’s

It’s summertime, remember?

Spike_WPEleven is the perfect age.

You’re old enough to go ‘bout anywhere with your cousin and best friend without any grownup supervision. But you’re not quite big enough to have a few farm chores stretch into full fledged daily work.

You can jump off the dock and touch bottom, feel the lake’s mud squeeze through your toes as you thrust up. You no longer have to wear your life vest
