Capital Report: Caring for Missouri’s Seniors

by State Sen. Brad Lager

As a civilized society, we take the responsibility of caring for those who truly cannot care for themselves very seriously. In some cases, these individuals are senior citizens who have worked for decades to provide for their families and help build the communities in which they live. As they have reached their golden years, economic pressures make it difficult for them to meet their most

Letter to the Editor: Life is Short

Dear Editor:

I know that most people knew that October was Breast Cancer Awareness Month. There was not a radio or TV ad, that I didn’t wonder what I could have done; should have done; or wish I had done.

Donna passed away six months ago and we knew nothing about breast cancer until 30 days before. She was being treated for pneumonia before that.

A few weeks ago I

Thanksgiving Praise

by Pastor Steve Ellison

The Thanksgiving holiday has a long tradition here in the U.S. The Plymouth Colony observed the first Thanksgiving in 1621. George Washington and other early Presidents directed the country to celebrate Thanksgiving in an on-again, off-again fashion until Abraham Lincoln made it an official annual federal holiday during the Civil War. However, the tradition of expressing thankfulness to God goes back much further than that.

Thanksgiving Complications

ShepherdCalls_WPThanksgiving! The word is something of a paradox. Think about it. More often than not, one is thankful for something they have received; but the word “thanksgiving” advises us to “give.” Human nature generally prefers receiving more than giving. That nature, at the very least, strains our thankfulness.

For some time prior to writing this article, I contemplated my own thankfulness. I asked myself if I could give thanks for

The 9-Month Schedule

by Freida Marie Crump

PooseyDigest_WPGreetings from Poosey.

Once upon a time in a faraway school system a wise old wizard dropped himself right in the middle of a faculty meeting. The school had often been visited by alien creatures …food inspectors, fire and safety folks, and an army of workshop leaders who’d teach the teachers how to teach the current governmental mandates, but they’d never been visited by a real

A Confession: I’m Tired of BLTs

Dw.cdrI never thought I’d say this, but I’m tired of BLTs. I write this with some trepidation.

My wife never saw a tomato she didn’t like. She’s a Tomato-head… a tomatoholic. I can’t hold it against her. She’s her father’s daughter — I never met a man more partial to tomatoes (unless corn on the cob was in season).

There are millions of people who spend billions of dollars each

Letter to the Editor: Proud of Our Community

Dear Editor:

A couple of weeks ago, on a Monday while I was volunteering at the Gallatin Senior Center it came to my mind how much I enjoyed serving there and really getting to know and care for so many people who came through the door to serve, to eat or just visit. My husband Art and I had volunteered there together for about eight years when he passed away

Capitol Perspectives: Nixon’s Misguided Intent

To protect the public from journalists

by Phill Brooks

The day after the November elections, Gov. Jay Nixon provided the most detailed explanation yet as to why his administration blocks reporters from talking with agency directors and experts. His explanation ultimately came down to the argument that it was too harmful to the public for journalists to have that kind of access.

The explanation came at a news conference where

The New ‘Fourth Estate’ Surpassing the Media

by Lee H. Hamilton

Because of its power to influence public affairs, the press has long been known as “the Fourth Estate.” But I think the media may have been displaced. These days, it’s lobbyists who seem to carry the most clout in Washington.

Here’s a case in point. When Congress closed at the beginning of August for its end-of-summer recess, it faced wide-scale derision for having accomplished next to
