Poosey Digest: Edith’s Cornballs

by Freida Marie Crump

PooseyDigest_WPGreetings from Poosey.

Pity our poor National Anthem. As it celebrates its 200th birthday this year the song has been much maligned as “unsingable,” “war like,” and simply old-fashioned. The fellow who penned it after watching the bombardment of Fort McHenry in the War of 1812 meant it to be nothing more than a poem. He never intended for someone to set it to a piece

The President and Congress Should Work Together

On military intervention

by Lee H. Hamilton

In his speech last week outlining his plans to use military force against the jihadists of the Islamic State, President Obama gave Congress only passing mention. “I have the authority to address the threat from ISIL,” he said. “But I believe we are strongest as a nation when the president and Congress work together.”

He’s right, of course. But that’s not the half

Lookin’ for the Sizzle

Dw.cdrRemember that TV commercial now in distant past, where one of the two ol’ ladies standing in line at a hamburger joint looked down, holding mostly a bun, and blared: “Where’s the beef?”

Sometimes life’s like that. Sometimes you can spend a lot of time working on something you think you can sink your teeth into only to eventually realize what you wind up with is not quite what you

Good Thinking: September Song

by Dr. Don Kuehle

September is one of those “in-between” months. September stands in between the last days of summer and the first days of fall. September is a one-of-a-kind month; she has her own song to sing. September’s song is a joyful song, a melody for all those “in-between” times in life. As Helen Hunt Jackson writes…

“The goldenrod is yellow; The corn is turning brown;

The trees in

The Art of Following

ShepherdCalls_WPAfter church, some friends and I were going to lunch. Since I was in their city, I asked them to select a restaurant. They told me the name of the restaurant and said, “Follow me.” Somewhere, in the brief one-mile journey to a nice sit-down eatery, another auto got between us. When I followed that car into a drive-in restaurant, I realized I was following the wrong vehicle. Fortunately, my

Instigating Revival

by Pastor Steve Ellison

To instigate means to do something that sets another action in motion. It means to help something get started. Often instigate is used in a negative manner. However, instigate can be used in reference to a good thing.

The church in America is in desperate need of spiritual awakening and revival. Be very clear about one thing; spiritual awakening and revival are works of God not

Rule #1: Just Have Fun!

by Freida Marie Crump

PooseyDigest_WPGreetings from Poosey.

We’ve missed something. My pillow still has a tag that reads, “Do not remove under penalty of law,” and even my ketchup bottle sports a label filled with information required by government regulation. So what happened to parades? Nearly every town of any size hosts an annual parade or two but I can’t find anything published by the federal government regulating the things.

Letter to the Editor: The Moving Wall and Thanks

Dear Editor:

There was a very heartfelt thank you in last week’s paper from Elaine Kettering regarding the Vietnam Moving Wall. Carl and I appreciate our names being mentioned and that we provided some food and drinks, but we were volunteers just like all the rest of the community.

VFW Post 2172 and a core group of volunteers from the community, spearheaded by Post Commander Ray Clevenger, spent more than

Breaking the Daily Grind

Dw.cdrOn a personal level, what does Labor Day mean to you? Maybe the holiday just slipped past so fast you didn’t give it much thought.

Most of us just want a paying job that has a little wiggle room in order to make a little more money. Many throughout Northwest Missouri are underemployed, and the only options are to string together part-time jobs that help make the whole.

Same goes
