Poosey Digest: A Top 10 for graduates

by Freida Marie Crump

Dear Graduate,

It’s that time …your time. For a precious few days you’ll be treated like the prince or princess and that’s okay. It won’t last, but that’s okay. Then whether you’re leaving the comfy nests called home and high school or the ivied walls of your college you’ll be a bit more on your own. I admire those who think they’ve prepared you with lectures,

Another year, another ‘Big Squeeze’

Spike_WPRandom thoughts here, mostly personal.

I miss Paul Harvey on the radio. I’m not entirely sure I believed everything the news commentator from Chicago put over the airwaves, but his was a unique voice often talking about familiar things.

Harvey regularly spotlighted couples enjoying years and years of marriage in what he called “The Tournament of Roses.” I don’t recall ever personally knowing any couple he saluted, but it always

Capitol Perspectives: Missouri’s gaming tax trend focuses on fantasy

by Mark Hughes

Final action on major bills is often left until the end of legislative sessions, and this was especially true in Missouri’s 2016 session. With a range of pending proposals encompassing issues from photo voter ID to union payroll deductions and a tax boost for highways, some seemed a bit surprised when Gov.

Good Thinking: No Comparison

by Dr. Don Kuehle

Everyone worships a God. Every person on earth has something/someone who is their #1 priority — their God. What I hear in today’s society disturbs me greatly: “All Gods are the same” and “It doesn’t make any difference which God you worship, or if you worship any God at all.” Wrong. Not true.

It’s time for a comparison: the One True God vs. the lesser Gods.

The Shepherd Calls: June, Vacations, and God

ShepherdCalls_WPby Dr. Wade Paris

June is an interesting month. There are June bugs, June brides, June birthdays (including mine), June Vacation Bible Schools, June graduates, and on and on we might go. June is the beginning of summer, the beginning of our “relaxed time.” Children are out of school, a mixed blessing. Days are longer. Many of us love daylight savings time.

In June our attention often turns to vacations.

Free Speech

by Pastor Steve Ellison

Living in a free society with the ability to speak and write freely about our opinions and beliefs is a precious thing. Couple that with living in an age when virtually anyone and everyone has the ability to make himself or herself heard and you have a complex situation. There are many advantages as well as some disadvantages to this reality. My purpose is not to

Graves Statement on GOP Obamacare Victory

Congressman Sam Graves issued the following statement after a federal judge found President Obama broke the law by handing out subsidies to fund Obamacare (the judge ruled the White House was illegally spending money that was not appropriated by Congress, as increased healthcare costs brought on by Obamacare left many Americans unable to afford coverage without government subsidies):

“Obamacare has been a never-ending string of lies, broken promises, and increased

Capitol Perspectives: Teaching Journalism

by Phill Brooks

For my last column as director of MU’s State Government Reporting Program, I want to describe some of what I’ve sought to teach my students about public policy journalism during the last four decades. While this is not a complete list, maybe it will give you a better understanding of what makes government reporters tick.

*Learn the Process and Policy: To effectively cover government and politics, you
