More than just the horserace

Editor's SpikeOne measure to use when choosing which candidate for President deserves your vote is simple. Can you state more reasons to vote for your choice than all your frustrations in voting against the other?

This is not to say vote for whichever candidate makes you feel good. If that’s the point, then aspire to become some bimbo party delegate. No, the challenge is to positively choose a candidate despite your

Capitol Perspectives: Election atics nothing new for Missouri

by Mark Hughes

During the April 5 elections, voters in some St. Louis County precincts couldn’t cast votes because of a shortage of ballots. A judge quickly issued an order keeping the polls open an extra two hours, but there was no delay in angry calls from both political parties for investigations.

Political opportunists will waste no time to use the ballot snafu as a truncheon to pound their opponents,

Capitol Report: Focus on these 3 ‘meaty’ proposals

by State Rep. J. Eggleston

Legislature often deals with numerous bills that are so mundane that they are rarely reported on by the media. You should know about three bills with movement in Jeff City of a meatier nature.

The first is SJR39, the religious freedom bill. This bill addresses religious freedoms versus gay rights in the debate over whether the government can compel clergy and small business owners to

Poosey Digest: Some advice from this fool

PooseyDigest_WPby Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

Once again no one has asked me my advice so I’ll just frame it in the form of an open letter to all candidates running for the office of president. I know that you all have advisors but apparently they aren’t doing their jobs. Shakespeare’s kings often employed a court jester or “Fool” to tell him the truth when everyone else was too

Dear Editor:

Hats off to Debbie Sweatman and the CDS faculty for organizing and hosting another successful Family Literacy Night. It always is a wonderful opportunity for students, their families, and our community to come together to support our young children. They are our future.

Hope springs eternal

Spike_WPEvery spring somebody forgets to tell the magnolia tree along our driveway that we’re too far north for her blossoms to survive our typical late cold snap. Every year she flirts with us, dressing up winter’s dull browns with beautiful purple and white blossoms. But, at best, it’s a fleeting splendor. If not the cold then it’s gusts of hard wind that unmercifully strip away such beauty.

Letter to the Editor

Dear Daviess County PWSD#1 Customers,

It has been brought to our attention, that a letter has been distributed to water district customers, essentially placing blame on the City of Pattonsburg for a large increase in district water rates.

It is none of our business how the district chooses to set up its rate structure. We feel that it IS our business to set the record straight about what the city

Religious freedoms vs gay rights may go to ballot

by State Rep. J. Eggleston

Previously, I outlined how after bills are filed they go through a two-layer committee process before it is possible they may be heard and debated on the House floor. In the early weeks of session, most of our work is in committee passing the good bills, rejecting the bad bills, and amending and improving the bills that are so-so to make them better.

But now

Poosey Digest: Keep an eye on Helen

PooseyDigest_WPby Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

Ancient peoples used to cut chickens apart and read their entrails to forecast the future. Jemima Packington, a renowned mystic, throws asparagus spears into the air and tells the future by which way they land. Ailuromancy is the art of forecasting what’s ahead by observing your cat’s behavior, and I’m not kidding… rumpology is the study of people’s rear ends to predict what’s
