Editor’s Spike: In the pursuit of happiness …despite Sarah

Everything I know about politics I learned in fourth grade.

Editor's SpikeAll my attention was focused on my work which, at that time, was trying to be the best kick ball player at recess. It was my turn to kick. I looked up hoping to find a hole among the maze of defenders so I could score a home run. What I saw instead was Sarah (not her real name) marching

Goooooooooooo… Muckdogs!

A chunk of the family won’t be with us for a July 4th picnic or barbecue. My younger sister and her family will be in Batavia, NY, and we couldn’t be happier. Earlier this season my nephew, Lee Stoppleman, was approached by several major league baseball scouts all suggesting that he play professional baseball.

This was a long time coming. Lee gave evidence of his athletic prowess early, dribbling

Have we forgotten the origins of Independence Day?

As people in the Gallatin area are enjoying Independence day at Dockery Park this year, we wonder if they remember its origins. America’s cities and small towns will be filled with parades, fireworks and barbeques. They will be celebrating the 236th birthday of its origin.

I found a yellowed newspaper clipping in my file written by Michael Berliner, the former executive director of the AYN Rand Institute in Marina

Cut to the Chase: Not your father’s Farm Bill

by Tracy Taylor Grondine

Farm bill legislation approved by the Senate and awaiting debate in the House of Representatives is not your father’s typical farm bill. It’s about the future. Passing through the Senate last week, the Agriculture Reform, Food and Jobs Act (S. 3240) recognizes that U.S. farmers are aging and something needs to be done to ensure that the future of agriculture is viable. The Senate’s version includes

Good Thinking: Let freedom ring!

by Dr. Don Kuehle

“I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America….”

I walked into the church sanctuary; at the front were two flags: the American flag and the Christian flag. Both are important; both remind us some basic truths and principles that we celebrate.

As our gaze focuses on the American flag, we’re reminded of the greatness of this nation in which we live, of

Off the Editor’s Spike: Finally, some sparks!

Fireworks and fun in a community setting returns to Gallatin this Fourth of July for the first time in years.

There has been a void in community affairs here. There is no active Gallatin Chamber of Commerce or similar civic organization to coordinate holiday fun events, much less to promote or to coordinate serious business and community development. You know the story. Population decline, financial distress, stagnant retail competition and

Poosey Digest: An aversion to work

Greetings from Poosey.

Herb and summer don’t mix. In fact, I’ve yet to find a season that completely agrees with the old poop’s temperament. As soon as the grass starts to grow and the hedges need trimming, my husband has a mysterious aura come over him and he’s attacked by a bagful of ailments that would send the Mayo brothers screaming out of Minnesota and into flower arranging.

Post Scripts: Do you think English is easy?

This has been around awhile, but I thought it has some pretty good things to think about.

Let’s face it: English is a crazy language.  There is no egg in eggplant, nor ham in hamburger; neither apple or pine in pineapple.  English muffins weren’t invented in England or french fries in France.  We take English for granted.  But if we explore its paradoxes, we find that quicksand can work slowly,

Cut to the Chase: Eden along the Missouri

by Blake Hurst

The Garden of Eden, in my mind, has always looked something like a cornfield in late June. Just before tasseling, when the corn is at its darkest green, perhaps even blue, and if you listen really close, you can almost hear it grow. Perhaps it is a field along the Missouri River, where the rows run long and straight.

To others, the Garden of Eden is a
