Good Thinking: A good word for poor ol’ Dad

by Dr. Don Kuehle

A little boy was asked, “What’s the difference between Mother’s Day and Father’s Day?” Without hesitation he responded:  “The presents don’t cost as much.”

President Woodrow Wilson proclaimed, in 1914, that the second Sunday in May be observed as Mother’s Day. It wasn’t until 1972 that Father’s Day became a national holiday. Poor old dad!

Edith Swanson wrote the truth when she said:

America needs more Walter Cronkites

Spike_WPBack when I was a maturing teenager and knew it all, we called him “Uncle Walter.”

The evening news on TV was a half-hour before the local news took over the tube at 6 p.m. Despite marketing demographics, that seldom was the supper hour for us growing up on the farm. But as I approached eligibility for the military draft in the waning years of Vietnam, I found myself paying

Poosey Digest: Modesty, where are you?

PooseyDigest_WPby Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

Take a trip to either coast and you’ll get a chuckle out of our fellow Americans’ stereotypical view of Midwesterners… there’s nothing but corn, we fry everything then dip it in ranch dressing, we want to stay where we were born, we’re all conservative, we like to tip cows over in our spare time, a John Deere cap is the height of fashion,

Good Thinking: Hurrah for the Grand Ol’ Flag!

by Dr. Don Kuehle

At various times and places we stand with others and pledge our allegiance to our nation’s flag: “I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.” No matter how many times we say it, the words still evoke a sense of national pride!

A rocket scientist’s story

Spike_WPI’d like you to meet Bill Vaughan, maybe without traveling all the way to Huntsville, Ala., as we did recently on a vacation trip.

First off let me say there’s too much to comprehend visiting the U.S. Space & Rocket Center for just one day. Informational displays are excellent.

Precision in the choice of words, the balance between insight and sheer fact, even the choice of colors and variance within

Capitol Perspectives: 45 days that balance power and politics in Missouri

by Mark Hughes
This year’s session of the legislature — formally known as the Second Regular Session of the 98th Missouri General Assembly, adjourned pursuant to the Constitution at midnight on May 30.

Granted, the speeches, amendments, debates, votes, introduction of guests and affiliated standing and grandstanding concluded a couple of weeks earlier — replete with the sophomoric littering of the House chamber with bills and amendments tossed into the

Christian Fellowship

by Pastor Steve Ellison

 Church members have a lot of misconceptions about Christian fellowship and Christian unity. The New Testament speaks much of being of one accord and being in unity. Agreement is not unity. Agreement can be simply a matter of behavior. Unity will involve attitude and heart. Unity will involve the spirit as well as the letter. The Bible is clear that unity is a gift from God,

Poosey Digest: Summer camp

PooseyDigest_WPby Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

She makes a visit to our church every spring and her annual plea is always a joy to me. Helen has been a summer camp director for our denomination for over 30 years and my admiration for the lady has only grown over the decades. It takes a special combination of steely determination and love to herd hundreds of kids through the annual

The Shepherd Calls: Flag Day

ShepherdCalls_WPby Dr. H. Wade Paris

Next Tuesday, June 14, is Flag Day in the United States, commemorating the adoption of the United States flag on that day in 1777. In 1916, President Woodrow Wilson issued a proclamation that officially established June 14 as Flag Day. Now, 239 years after its original adoption, I will proudly fly the American flag on the front of my house.
