Retiring a Favorite Beach Towel

Dw.cdrJune means vacation time for many families. So, if that time comes for you, what souvenirs do you choose to remember those good times?

Souvenirs on my shelves are scant. Family vacations that actually placed us in some hitherland beyond the scope of a long weekend were very infrequent. Some of the trinkets I have are gifts from others. One of the souvenirs I particularly remember buying for myself isn’t

Letter to the Editor: Hesitation About Hog Farms

Dear Editor:

The purpose of writing this letter is to express our concerns regarding the proposed construction of a Concentrated Animal Feeding Operation (CAFO) adjacent to Highway W in the Hickory Creek area of Grundy County.

In close proximity to this planned CAFO, about 3.1 miles SW, lies the Poosey Conservation Area. Many of us in this part of Missouri and beyond are much aware of the varied recreational opportunities

by Pastor Steve Ellison

God has given much authority, and even more responsibility to fathers. Social workers study extensively and consistently report that good fathering is of the utmost importance in the well-being of children. Therefore it is right and good that we ought to celebrate good fathers. Furthermore, we should encourage, train, exhort, and equip those fathers who are lacking. This will bless the children and benefit society. However,

Let’s Go Postal

by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

I can remember as a youngster running in to get the mail and hearing the peep-peep of baby chickens in the back room. An indulgent postmaster would let me go back to look at the chicks peeking their little beaks out of the round holes in the shipment box. I recently read where it was only last year when some legislative body made

Miracle or Tragedy

It had been a long, hard day. Nellie Frances was preparing dinner. She said it would be a few minutes. I laid down on the bed to rest and fell sound asleep for just a minute. The phone rang; I answered. The party calling had some information I had requested. I was trying to write it down, but I couldn’t see.

Something’s wrong here, I thought as I squinted looking

What Kind of Father Will That Boy Grow to Be?

He’s a bundle of energy now, living in his own world. Or he’s the toddler beginning to realize how a grin or a little snicker can get you out of all kinds of trouble.

A father mostly learns on the job. What we don’t remember is when the job started. It is not at that time when a man impregnates a woman. There’s more to being a real father. It

My Kind of Judge

by Pastor Steve Ellison

When it comes to religious matters these days, there is a lot of talk about judging. First of all, no one likes to be called to account. Also, much of the attack aimed at creation via an intelligent Creator is not predicated upon science, logic, or reason regarding the feasibility of creation. Rather, much of that attack is based upon the desire to eliminate the idea

Our Father

Orey Steinman was just “messing around” with his computer when he typed his unusual name into an internet search engine. What he learned was shocking. He saw a childhood picture of himself on a website for missing children. The 17 year old learned that his mother had taken him from Canada 14 years ago in the midst of a custody battle.

The Need for Character

by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

Now and again I’ll read something that just jumps off the page and smacks me in the heart. Such was the case as I was digesting a new book by New York Times writer David Brooks. He titled the work “The Road to Character,” it’s a study of what’s happened inside our hearts and minds in America during the past decades.
