Let’s give thanks for transportation blessings …and pass them on

by Stephen R. Miller, Chairman Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission

I had a chance last week to address the annual meeting of the Missouri Association of Counties, a gathering of Missouri mayors and the Columbia Chamber of Commerce. Anticipating this holiday week, I spoke about all we have to be grateful for – from a transportation perspective.

We have been blessed by our geography. While we lack great oceans and

Poosey Digest: A gentle, angelic ping

PooseyDigest_WPby Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

Helen is my shopping buddy and sometimes she actually comes in handy. While I refuse to be sucked into the world of the iPhone she has hers permanently attached to her index finger. And although we haven’t actually made eye contact since she bought the thing, she’s guided us around traffic jams, into good eating places, and through some nasty weather with her

We deserve answers on prescription drug price hikes

by U.S. Senator Claire McCaskill

The high cost of prescription drug prices is on the minds of Missourians.

As I travel around the state I hear from folks, many of them seniors on fixed incomes, who have seen the cost of life-saving prescription drugs skyrocket. Some of these seniors are in the desperate position of having to decide whether to pay for their medicine with money budgeted for other essentials,

A season of thanks

Dw.cdrI’m thankful to live in a small town. I think on that every time I enjoy a fresh breath of air.
I’m thankful for the folks who made Christmas Around the Square such an event. No matter how many ways the rest of the world may tell us we don’t matter, community does matter. A lot. And we have many things to be thankful for. Last Saturday in Gallatin is

The Thanksgiving Wishbone

by Chris Fennewald

It’s the time of year to make a wish — not a Christmas wish. This holiday between the marketing blitzes of Halloween and Christmas, Thanksgiving, is wish-making time. All you need is a wishbone to carry on a tradition that dates back 2,400 years.

Way back then, an ancient Italian civilization, known as the Etruscans, thought birds were prophetic and used them as a means to foretell

Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor:

Starting in early October the Pattonsburg R-2 School District has engaged with parents, community members, teachers and students to understand everyone’s unique perspective through two surveys: one to the parents and one to the staff.

Communication is the most important, yet difficult thing to accomplish in a school district. Just because it is hard doesn’t mean that we shy away from it.

It is the vision of the

Where to put the Syrian migrants?

by State Rep. J. Eggleston

The recent terror attacks in France have brought flashbacks of our own suffering from terrorism on Sept. 11, 2001. From continent to continent, the world is now united behind France and her will to take the fight to ISIS, and to defiantly rebound from her tragic losses.
In the wake of this latest attack, many states have put forth statements saying they will reject the

Poosey Digest: Truly giving thanks

PooseyDigest_WPby Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.
My friend, Bobbi, said she didn’t sleep a wink that night. We’d gone out to eat with a couple other friends and Bobbi insisted that she pick up the tab. She’s the type who’s always doing that unless you break her arm. We stayed long past our dessert and by the time the evening was over our waitress had become our close friend,

Poosey Digest: Sittin’ beside Bubba

PooseyDigest_WPby Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

As global warming continues to raise its hoary head and threaten our extinction, terrorists plot to destroy the Western World, and ingrown toenails now afflict 21% of our population I know that there are larger matters confronting us than what seems to be bothering me at the moment, but dog-gone it, move over!

It happened again last week. I’d paid big bucks for
