Off the Editor’s Spike: What measures excessive?

Somewhere along the way the Super Bowl lost its way. I still love the game, but somehow the ultimate championship has turned into a freak show. It’s no longer just football but all sorts of other things.

Maybe it’s the CDV-pound (405-pound) tight end, the biggest athlete yet to be delivered through the pro football draft. Bigger and faster human battering rams mean more concussions …more game disruptions for medical

Capitol Perspectives: Transparency

by Phill Brooks

A cloak of secrecy has descended upon Missouri government to a degree I never imagined in all my decades covering this statehouse for you. It comes from the administration of Missouri’s new governor, Eric Greitens.

I actually had hoped for something different. He ran a campaign promising change and challenging the old way of doing business in government.

Other governors I’ve covered who campaigned on platforms of

God’s Strange Work

by Pastor Steve Ellison

God granted an extremely rare privilege to Moses in Exodus 34:6-7, “Then the Lord passed by in front of him and proclaimed, “The Lord, the Lord God, compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, and abounding in lovingkindness and truth; who keeps lovingkindness for thousands, who forgives iniquity, transgression and sin; yet He will by no means leave the guilty unpunished.” (NASU)

God’s first inclination is always

Good Thinking: Februarius

by Dr. Don Kuehle

What time is it? Who can say. History records that people through the ages have changed time to suit themselves. Once there were only 10 months in the Calendar Year. The year began with the month of March. Some Roman Emperor decreed that two additional months be added to the calendar. He named them “Januarius” and “Februarius” and placed them at the end of the calendar

Taking another look at Missouri’s Nonpartisan Court Plan

by State Sen. Dan Hegeman

The fourth week of session began with the annual State of the Judiciary address, given by Missouri Supreme Court Chief Justice Patricia Breckenridge, to a joint session of the General Assembly and statewide office holders. Similar to the State of the State, the State of the Judiciary gives the chief justice the opportunity to update the legislature, executive branch, and taxpayers on the current condition

State government will tighten its belt in 2017

by State Rep. J. Eggleston

Your Missouri House and Senate debate many bills each year. Already around 1200 bills have been filed. But the only bills we are constitutionally obligated to pass is a budget.

In creating a budget, the legislature is not planning on how to spend money that has already come in. Instead, we are planning on how to spend the money we think will be collected in

Poosey Digest: It’s our loss

by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

A small town can’t afford to lose a single business but this week we lost our longest tenured establishment as Freda Pressly shut her doors for good. I doubt that there’s a family in our little town who doesn’t have at least one framed photograph from the Pressly studios as Freda, and her departed husband, Leon, were the town’s official photographers since the

Reflecting on the Governor’s State-of-the-State address

by State Sen. Dan Hegeman

Members of the legislature gathered in the House chamber to listen on as newly sworn-in Governor Eric Greitens gave his first State of the State address.

In his speech, the governor called for creating more jobs and growing an economy that will lead to higher incomes for all families in the Show-Me State. In addition, his legislative agenda includes tackling labor reform, tort reform and

Poosey Digest: We need a good bypass

by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

We live in a bypass world. A nation’s leader wants to avoid having his facts checked and avoid certain issues so he’ll tweet out his thoughts rather than expose them to the light of examination. Some leaders hold sham news conferences where the questions are pre-determined and any journalist who dares step off the prescribed list will find himself sending dispatches from Siberia.
