by State Sen. Dan Hegeman

Poosey Digest: The need to listen

by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

Bernice and Harold Rexroat were one of the most interesting couples to ever grace our neck of the woods. They were a source of both concern and entertainment ’round Poosey as their arguments became the stuff of legend over the years. There are those who claim that some marriages thrive on conflict. If that’s the case then Bernice and Harold succeeded mightily. I

Good Thinking: Discrimination vs Freedom of Speech

by Dr. Don Kuehle

“Discrimination” is one of the most misused and abused words in our language today. The original meaning of the word has been drastically changed, but the truth behind the original meaning has not changed. Mr. Webster defines “Discrimination” as (a) making a distinction on the basis of prejudice or lack of information; or (b) to note a difference between persons or things.

Meat and vegetables in the Ozarks

Spike

Have you ever picked up a ballot only to realize you know nothing about three of the five names listed?

That’s the first thing that came to mind last Friday when all five candidates running for governor of Missouri took their places at a candidates forum hosted by the Missouri Press Association. The forum held at the Chateau on the Lake in Branson meant to fix that, as did a

Poosey Digest: Just use more pepper

PooseyDigest_WPby Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

It was a day that the old timers say will live forever in local lore. Mike Wiggins walked into the local cafe and plopped a heavy metal object down on the counter. “There it is, boys!

The Gallatin City Council made a decision on Sept. 21, 2016, that will impact the lives of our children and grandchildren for years to come.  The water plant will be built and the rates we charge will have to increase to pay for it. It was not easy, but it had to be done. The current trend has gone away from local control and community water production to regional efforts
