Poosey Digest:  Bones tell the story

by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

CINCINNATI (AP) “Workers renovating a century-old performance hall discovered human remains under the orchestra pit and now archeologists are planning to analyze the bones.”  The report went on to say that bones have been “popping up” ever since the excavation began. The assortment of bones seems to be from four adult bodies, a quartet so to speak.

I have a group of musician

The Shepherd Calls: Tell Me How to Fix It

ShepherdCalls_WPby Dr. H. Wade Paris

The speaker spent the first 15 minutes of his preaching time in a harangue about politics. He apologized for it, saying he didn’t like to mix preaching and politics; but he couldn’t seem to contain himself. Though he mentioned no party, his position was clearly partisan. I was a guest, so I didn’t mention it; but, I had come to be spiritually fed — not

Capitol Perspectives: Questions to ask our next gubernatorial candidates

by Phill Brooks

As the Missouri legislative session winds down its 2016 session, I’ve been thinking about the issues lawmakers have left unresolved. Those issues present a foundation for questions that could be asked of the candidates who seek to be Missouri’s governor for the next four legislative sessions.

A major question involves how the candidates would change their approach with the legislature.

For the past eight legislative sessions, Missouri’s

Choices, choices, choices

Spike_WPWe’re in the middle of a choice explosion. Ponder this: Americans now have more choices over more things than any other culture in human history.

Every day we choose from a broad array of foods, media sources, and lifestyles. Today we even have those choosing gender …as if they’re in control of such things. I try to remain optimistic in saying this, and truly, much that is wonderful separating today

Good Thinking: Baccalaureate

by Dr. Don Keuhle

In ancient France, the foot soldiers in the army were called “bas chevaliers”, or in the common vernacular “bacheliers.” Once these men had been tested in battle, they received the honored title of “baccalarius,” One who had struggled in battle and had emerged victorious. Later, this term would be used in the academic world.

The “baccalaurius” would be one who had struggled, been tested, and deemed

Mothers – Chosen of God

by Pastor Steve Ellison

 Perhaps you have heard this tale. A young mother of three wrote the following thank you note. “Many thanks for the play pen. It is being used every day from 2 to 3 pm. I get in it to read and the children can’t get near me.”

Every mother understands that. The complete lack of private time places a high premium on it. Motherhood is an

Capitol Report: The legislative ‘harvest’ approaches

by State. Rep. J. Eggleston

The farmer plants in the spring, the crop grows in the summer, and the farmer harvests in the fall. These are the stages of the reaping of a crop. Similarly, there are stages in the legislative process as an idea germinates in filing, sprouts through the committee and debate process, and then in maturity grows into law.

With only one week remaining in session, we

Poosey Digest: Plumbing the depths

by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

It’s a bad habit but I’m stuck with it. Whenever I’m eating out my ears start scanning the room to pick up conversations at other tables. Call it nosy if you like, I prefer to be labeled as an astute observer of mankind. Besides, it gives me an excuse not to talk to Herb.

Last week we were dining in nice little joint

History doesn’t have to be “oldy, moldy” of at least a century or so ago.

Spike_WPThere are efforts underway to dream up some productive way to revitalize the cupola/grocery store building on the northeast corner of the Gallatin square.  These days private business does not exactly latch onto vacant buildings with problems, no matter how good the location.

It is premature to settle on any course of action which will determine the future of one of Gallatin’s landmarks. It is likely, however, to become a
