Good Thinking: Same Old Crowd

by Dr. Don Kuehle

Fire flamed against the night sky. The small church building was a total loss. Members of the congregation met, and decided to hold Sunday Services in the only available building in town, the local tavern. As the people assembled on the following Sunday morning, the tavern-owner’s pet parrot looked out over the crowd and proclaimed in a squawking tone: “New piano player. New emcee. New floor

The ‘New’ Buy a Politician Plan

by Freida Marie Crump

PooseyDigest_WPGreetings from Poosey.

The average Joe on the street doesn’t know much about the Supreme Court and I have feeling that’s just dandy with the justices who sit there. We know that they line up once a year for a picture where they closely resemble the judges at a dill pickle contest, and they look like none of them have ever worked for Meals on Wheels.

Hagar and the Angel of the Lord

by Pastor Steve Ellison

Genesis 16 records the very first appearance of the Angel of the Lord to a human being. “Angel of the Lord” occurs 56 times in the Old Testament and 12 times in the New Testament.

The story of Hagar, a young, pregnant Egyptian servant girl provides the setting. The father of the baby was Abram, the servant’s owner/master. This made Sarai, the man’s wife, angry even

Pings and Pangs

ShepherdCalls_WPWith keen interest, my wife and I listened as the Australian retired Chief Air Marshal Angus Houston reported about ships listening for pings from the flight data recorder of the missing Malaysian airliner MH370. He said two different ships were thought to have heard pings from the plane’s black box. The pings were from different areas of the ocean but seemingly of the right frequency. However, he cautioned that the

The Choice

by Pastor Steve Ellison

In Matthew 21 and 22, Jesus told a series of parables aimed primarily at identifying, defining, and condemning hypocrisy. The Parable of the Two Sons, the Parable of the Wicked Tenants (more accurately the Parable of the Landowner), and the Parable of the Wedding Feast each teach us about the terrible dangers of hypocrisy. However, our always gracious and forgiving God stood ready to forgive. In

Time to Fix Government

by Lee H. Hamilton

In 1965, the chairman of the powerful Ways and Means Committee, Wilbur Mills, brought legislation establishing Medicare and Medicaid to the floor of the U.S. House. That was my first year in Congress, and I remember vividly the moment when Mills came to the Democratic caucus to explain his plans.

Many of us had been swept into office in the 1964 Democratic wave that accompanied Lyndon

Talking Inanimately

by Freida Marie Crump

PooseyDigest_WPGreetings from Poosey.

I walked in on my friend June this week. She didn’t answer the door but this is Poosey… you just walk in. I thought I heard her voice in the back of the house so I assumed she had visitors, but when I walked into her den she was alone… talking. One woman sitting in a chair talking.

I knew that June was

Ready or Not, Here Comes Tuesday

Dw.cdrMany words have been written these past weeks, proving that the complexities in financing city services defy brief explanation. Another letter to the editor in this last print edition before next Tuesday’s election offers more evidence.

I feel compelled to clarify what I hope is obvious. Space provided for views we do not endorse is the standard policy of this newspaper. The newspaper business is all about competition, including the

Oops!

ShepherdCalls_WPIt was Sunday morning. I awoke early and got ready for church. When I went to put on my shoes, they were muddy from wearing them in the recent snows and mud. Reluctantly (I’m not fond of shining shoes), I got out my trusted shoeshine kit and cleaned them up.

Realizing time was passing fast; I hurriedly stopped in the kitchen to get another cup of coffee. Looking out the
