What Lies Ahead

by Lee H. Hamilton

Given all the words and images devoted to the midterm elections over the past few weeks, you’d think the results had told us something vital about the future of the country. In reality, they were just a curtain-raiser. It’s the next few weeks and months that really matter.

The big question, as the old Congress reconvenes and prepares to make way for next year’s version, is

The Season of Smorgasbord

by Freida Marie Crump

PooseyDigest_WPGreetings from Poosey.

I’ve always thought myself to be a peaceful person, then I’ll spend an hour with Herb in public and I tell myself that the man just needs a good slapping. Nothing can strain your pacifism like a lunk-headed husband.

We’re both fans of buffet-style eating, and we’re especially fond of oriental restaurants featuring this style of service. Of course, most oriental buffets in

The Right Side

ShepherdCalls_WPTraveling south along Interstate 49 (old Highway 71) from the final Raymore/Belton exit, one can see a tall county water tower. At first it appears to be on the left side of the highway, but the road twists and turns for the next several miles; and when you pass the tower, it is actually on the right side of the interstate.

Each time I make that journey (and I do

Sneak Attacks

by Pastor Steve Ellison

In the early days of World War II, the U.S. managed to somehow not be drawn into direct military action. That would soon change.

While no one would accuse Japan and the U.S. of being on friendly terms, the Japanese did have ambassadors in Washington, D.C. when the attack occurred. Because of the sneak attack, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt declared Dec. 7, 1941, to be a

Capital Report: Giving Thanks

by State Sen. Brad Lager

Over the last year, the challenges facing our state and nation have only grown. While some may accept that fact with great concern, the reality is that America has time and again taken great challenges and turned them into opportunities for great achievement. This defines America, the land of opportunity where ordinary individuals can achieve great success through hard work, determination and dedication.

Letter to the Editor: Christmas Around the Square

Dear Editor:

On behalf of myself and the City of Gallatin, I want to give a big shout out to Sally Black, Judy Elbert and Cyd Terry for organizing, planning and working so tirelessly on “Christmas Around the Square” this past weekend. I thought it was a huge success! It was so good to see our uptown busy with people and events. The decorations look so nice and I know

There’s Something About a Haircut

Dw.cdrI noticed that the Chillicothe Beauty Academy is bringing back the $5 haircut, at least for a limited time as promoted in this week’s Ad Zone Christmas Express edition. I should go. Don’t ask me “How ya doin’?” unless you really want to know. I need a haircut. Bad.

Whenever I need a haircut, it’s about all I can think about. And yet, I grudge taking the time it requires.

Letter to the Editor: Howard the Duck

Dear Editor:

I just want to say thank you for putting the article in your paper about the duck (Howard) being gone.

We finally figured out what happened to her.

Somebody dumped off a black Lab dog. It had been hanging around for two or three weeks. We had chased it out of the yard several times.

Sometime after midnight Sunday and early Monday morning, the dog got the duck.

Simplicity

by Freida Marie Crump

PooseyDigest_WPGreetings from Poosey.

The Mathewsons were unique. One-of-a-kind. Some would say eccentric. Flo and Henry Mathewson were an elderly brother and sister who lived the first house west of town, neither married, still living on the home place where they were raised.

Every morning of their adult life Flo would fix one egg and toast for Henry, and the two of them would listen to the
