The Shepherd Calls: Listen to the thunder

by Dr. H. Wade Paris

“Did you hear that thunder last night?” my wife asked.

“No, I didn’t hear it. Was it loud?”

“Why, it shook the house. Lightning must have struck close by. Keely (our dog) got right beside the bed.”

Oh, my! I love to hear the thunder roll; I love to watch the rain. Yet, I slept through it all.

There are several instances in the Bible

Off the Editor’s Spike: Have you been following the Delta Queen story?

Missouri’s U.S. Senators Claire McCaskill and Roy Blunt are pushing to bring the historic 1920s riverboat Delta Queen back to the Mississippi River. Proposed legislation would reinstate a decades-long exemption to allow the boat to operate from its new home port of Kimmswick in Jefferson County, just off I-55 along the Mississippi River south of St. Louis.

This is no small thing and goes beyond the romantic, the historic or

Poosey Digest: Technology for the back seat

by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

While many parents complain about how technology has taken over the minds of their children, once in a great while the nerds of the digital age will come out with something that actually helps Mom and Dad. Honda recently announced production of a new mini-van with a backseat spy cam. When a commotion arises in the rear of the van a parent can

Sen. McCaskill votes against DeVos

Citing the danger posed to Missouri’s small towns and rural communities, where public school resources are critical, Senator Claire McCaskill (D-Mo) voted against Betsy DeVos to be Secretary of Education, joining bipartisan opposition to the nominee.

“Ms. DeVos has focused on one goal when it comes to education—robbing public schools of resources in order to boost private schools,” said McCaskill, a graduate of Hickman High School in Columbia, Mo. “I

Good Thinking: Be my Valentine

by Dr. Don Kuehle

“God made my heart a valentine; Inscribed it with His light divine.

He filled it with some lovely things: early songbirds in the Spring,

Snowflakes and wayside flowers, golden moments and golden hours.

He added yet sincerity, and hope and faith and charity;

Plus love and mirth and mischief, too,

And made my valentine for you!”   — Minnie Klemme

Valentine’s Day is Feb. 14. We love

The Shepherd Calls: Valentine’s value

by Dr. H. Wade Paris

On a south sea island, there lived a shy girl named Sy, the fifth daughter and last child of a family who wanted a son. She grew up being told she was a disappointment. The family needed a son. As you might expect, she was disappointed in herself and lacked self- esteem.

In her culture, men purchased wives from the fathers. Suitors courted the girls;

Off the Editor’s Spike: Filibustering at bedtime

If you don’t understand politics, you need to invite the grandkids for a sleepover. Come bedtime, various political theatrics abound as you find yourself trying to coax the little tykes into doing what’s best and necessary yet obviously something they really don’t want to do.

Recently, we re-enacted the ageless ritual of negotiating pajamas onto the bodies of three little wigglewarts. One was ready for bed and gave up rather

Poosey Digest: Artificial intelligence

by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

I can still smell the carpet. I’d plop myself down on the living room floor and gaze at the row of burgundy books, The American People’s Encyclopedia, drag one onto the floor in front of me and open up this book of wonders. I was looking for Hungary to do my 5th grade social studies report, but what I found on the way
