Poosey Digest: You can’t scare me

PooseyDigest_WPby Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey to all those who’d like to frighten me. I have a simple year-end message for you: Go bother someone else. Sorry, but you can’t scare me.

The oldest trick in the political bag of lies is to fool us into thinking that the world is going to hell in a hat basket and the only way to avoid the Chicken Little fallout is

Nothing simple about this audit

Dw.cdrSome headlines and sound bites summarize the city audit in a harsh light…

  • surplus water/sewer revenue transferred in violation of bond covenants
  • over $607,000 transferred from the electric fund to other use
  • up to 75% of administrative wages paid without documentation to assign what expense to which fund
  • utility rate increases without documentation on how new rates were calculated
  • some customer bills adjusted without board approval
  • penalties not always properly

Letters to the Editor regarding Village of Jameson

Dear Editor,

I would like to respond to the three Jameson letters in last week’s paper.

The term village is not a quaint title but an official designation in the state of Missouri, referring to municipalities with a population of 500 or less. Jameson must abide by many of the same regulations that govern larger municipalities, including correctly written ordinances. Ordinances provide the governing body, and the residents they govern,

The Farmer’s Tale

By Denny Banister

Christmas is not just for those in the city where stores are abundant and bright lights shine pretty.

Dwellers in big towns would no doubt be shocked to find out that farmers keep Santa Claus stocked.

Now don’t get me wrong, the elf makes the toys and delivers them worldwide to good girls and boys.

But animals get hungry working hour by hour and reindeer don’t run

Poosey Digest: Dear Virginia…

PooseyDigest_WPDear Virginia,

…even though your name may be Jayson or Jenny or Brittany. You once asked if there was a Santa Claus and someone gave you an answer. But this Christmas you may have another question: Why do people do bad things?

Some really bad things have been happening in our schools lately and if you were like me, you’ve been very sad even though we didn’t know any of

Letters to the Editor regarding Village of Jameson

Dear Editor:

The following is a letter submitted to the Jameson Village Board by a concerned family of the village.
Nov. 19, 2015

Madam Chairman, and Jameson Village Board Members:
Jameson is a small village with only 40 to 50 homes. We see people taking care of their own homes and yards, because they want to. It is a beautiful place to live, not because of ordinances (passed but not

Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor:

Exciting things are happening at the Active Aging Resource Center, and we appreciate the support of our local community. In order to provide a better quality meal for our homebound older adults, we are now using a new heat-sealed tray and have recently added a commercial convection oven to aid with meal preparation. These improvements cost a bit more but help us enhance the nutritious meals we provide.

The Poosey Digest: Feelin’ lonely

PooseyDigest_WPby Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

I’ll tell you the truth. I’m up a tree and don’t know what the heck I’m supposed to do. One of our most vocal presidential candidates has advocated banning all Muslims from entering the United States which is, of course, just a small step from kicking out the 12 million who are already here working, raising families, and serving in the U.S. military.

Makin a list, wantin your advice

Dw.cdrIf you were to list the most famous or important military leaders from Daviess County, who would you list?

Well, did you read last week’s edition? News about the promotion of Jim Sears Jr. (GHS ‘87) to Brigadier General in the U.S. Air Force prompts these questions. At age 46, even greater responsibilities, achievements and promotions are likely for this Gallatin alum. History, so to speak, is unfolding right before
