‘Captain Shipers’ Sounds So Good

One of the great pleasures in spending years and years living in the same place is in sharing the joys and sorrows of those around you. This is one of those times. Folks throughout Gallatin stand proud as one of our own, Scott Shipers, advances into an even greater leadership role within the Missouri State Highway Patrol.

Fun in the Dark

by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

PooseyDigest_WPPoosey is the electrical version of the canary in the mineshaft. If there’s a lightning storm within a hundred miles we’ll be the place that loses its electricity. There wasn’t a cloud in the sky last week when about 8 o’clock at night the area was flung into darkness. Nothing was running but Herb’s sinuses, so we went out onto the front stoop

The Sky is Not Falling

The most recent Reader’s Digest contains a report of a study done by Steven Pinker and Andrew Mack on slate.com. According to their conclusions based on analysis of current available data, the sky is not falling or to use their words, “The world is not falling apart.”

ShepherdCalls_WPIt is easy to become paranoid by reading the headlines. “News is about things that happen, not things that don’t happen.” For example,

God’s View of Mothers

by Pastor Steve Ellison

As I write this on the eve of Mother’s Day, I am praying that you are making plans to attend church with your mother. I also hope you are spending some time thinking about mothers in general and specifically about your mother.

Isaiah 66:13 says, “As one whom his mother comforts, So I will comfort you; And you shall be comforted in Jerusalem.” (NASU) If God

Letter to the Editor: Poker in Old Pattonsburg

Dear Editor:

Remember playing poker back in the 1940s and ’50s? Poker was a popular game in this area. I always thought it was against the law, but nothing was ever done about it. The games were held at several places. They even had a placed called the Poker Shack two miles west of Pattonsburg on the river bank.

My dad owned the hardware store in town and there were

A Life of Praise

by Pastor Steve Ellison

Churches of all denominations, all over the United States, have difficulty retaining those who come and profess faith in Christ. A person who comes to faith in Christ is a “new creation” having been born again. This new Christian is not born fully developed and spiritually mature.

Just before ascending to heaven, Jesus gave us a command: make disciples by baptizing and teaching all that He

Learning the Rules

The fire alarm went off in the middle of our Sunday morning worship service. I asked the ushers to check and see if it was legitimate or a false alarm. In a few minutes, they reported a child in the nursery had pulled the fire alarm. There was no fire.

Money and Politics: We Need Change Now!

by Lee H. Hamilton

I’ve seen a lot over my decades in politics, and not much alarms me. But I have to be blunt: Money is poisoning our political system.

The people who matter most to a representative democracy — the ordinary voters in whose interests elected politicians are supposed to act — feel as though they’ve become an afterthought in the political process. The tidal wave of money washing

We Get What We Deserve

by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

PooseyDigest_WPNo one could ever quite figure out the Skinner sisters. Both in their 90s, they’d been raised in the same house, both married, then after 50-plus years both were widowed within months of each other so they moved into a big old two-story house on the east edge of town. But that’s where the similarities came to a crashing halt. Maude, the older
