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

Capital Report: Missouri Voters Have Spoken

by State Sen. Brad Lager

Last Tuesday, Missourians across this great state exercised their constitutional right to vote and let their voices be heard. Their desires, their decisions, and their votes sent a clear message while setting the direction for our state and nation.

Missouri’s voters re-elected our State Auditor along with several new state senators and state representatives. They passed a measure to make it easier to prosecute individuals

Good Thinking: Stress

by Dr. Don Kuehle

Anxiety! Tension! Stress! Words that define our society today! James Dobson puts it this way: “…one of the certainties of life is that we will all experience hardship and stress at some point.” Joshua Liebman echoes that thought: “Maturity is achieved when a person accepts life as full of tension (and stress).” Finally, Danzae Pace reminds us that “Stress is the trash of modern life —

Blessed Blunders

ShepherdCalls_WPThe October/November 2014 issue of Birds and Blooms contains a timely article about migrating birds. Once Canada geese were absent in summer in most of the continental United States. Large flocks of the geese would arrive stateside in late autumn, only to return north the following spring.

Midway into the 20th century, some biologists feared the geese would become extinct. New flocks were bred in captivity and released to join

Feeling Forsaken?

by Pastor Steve Ellison

Human beings are social. We need loyal companions. Anytime that we begin to believe that we have been forsaken by those whom we trust we are headed for depression and despair.

The Bible indicates that the ultimate horror that a human can experience is to be forsaken by God. Both Testaments describe God’s repeated promises to never leave or forsake His people. Only those who reject

Gallatin Gal Elected as Prosecuting Attorney

Dw.cdrI could reminisce here about Kristen Ellis, a Gallatin gal who must feel on top of the world today. I could mention her wearing the Red & Black while playing third base for the Bulldog softball team. I still can hear in memory’s ear her sweet voice filling the auditorium singing before the judges at state music contest before graduating from GHS in 1999. But I don’t want to embarrass

by State Sen. Brad Lager

From the American Revolution to the war in the Middle East, the men and women of America’s military have a proud heritage of defending freedom and liberty. While this began with colonial farmers leaving their families to take up arms in their fight for liberty, their legacy carries on as brave Americans continue to make great sacrifices to support and defend our nation and our
