Fixing Congress

by Lee H. Hamilton

These are hard times for Congress. Its approval ratings have seen a bump from their historic lows of a few months ago, but it’s a small one. Our representative democracy’s keystone political institution is widely derided as ineffective, unproductive, irrelevant, and sadly out of touch.

It is no coincidence that this comes while Congress has developed a taste for so-called “unorthodox lawmaking,” wandering far outside its

Letter to the Editor: From the City Admin

Dear Editor:

It is the duty of the city council to make the financial decisions regarding our city. It is your right and responsibility to question those decisions. This is why the city council will hold their next meeting (March 24 at 6:00) at the Dockery Park shelter building to encourage members of our community to come and ask questions and get the facts about the issues facing us all.

Capitol Report: Mid-Session Review

by State Sen. Brad Lager

This coming week, the Missouri General Assembly will be on spring break thereby signifying the midpoint of the 2014 legislative session.  We began this session on a mission to strengthen our state’s financial foundation, improve our business climate for job creation, and address many of the issues hindering our children’s education.

Off the Editor’s Spike

Dw.cdrYou are what you eat. Or, as Debbie Sweatman and other champions of the upcoming family Literacy Night at Searcy R-5 Elementary would say, you are what you read.

Cold winter nights make nibbling on junk food all too comforting — novels, several delicious mysteries, a reread of nearly all of Arthur Conan Doyle’s classic Sherlock Holmes tales, and a variety of books about my favorite subject, the Civil War.

Where’s the Party?

by Freida Marie Crump

PooseyDigest_WPGreetings from Poosey.

I’m ready for a party. Oh, I know that living in this most blessed of nations it’s hard to say that we deserve anything, but dog-gone it, after living through a winter like we’ve just endured I think we’ve earned the right to treat ourselves to a shindig. Print up the t-shirts proclaiming, “I survived the winter of 2014!” Break out the champagne

Good Thinking: We Can Count on God’s Providence

by Dr. Don Kuehle

Snoopy is sitting out in the cold, his supper dish frozen solid. Linus walks by, pats Snoopy on the head, and says: “Be warm and well fed, Snoopy.” And then Linus walks away, leaving Snoopy shivering in the cold. That could have been us. When Adam and Eve disobeyed the Father, broke His laws and his heart; when they were thrown out of Paradise, shivering in

Rise Up, It’s Spring

ShepherdCalls_WPIs it by coincidence or plan that St. Patrick’s Day and spring come almost simultaneously? On St. Patrick’s Day, we celebrate the green. At the same time, we are looking for the green of spring. Today is sunny, projected temperature 70-plus. A few days like this and everything will turn green. Wonderful!

Assuming there is some connection between spring and St. Patrick’s Day, folk in Amherst, Massachusetts, found it hard
