Aspiring to be grateful

Only a portion of our extended family reunited around a Thanksgiving table last Sunday, a vivid departure from years past. Family gatherings every holiday with nearly everyone in his or her place once seemed an endless tradition. Our family, as families everywhere, has grown in different directions. Things change.

We take too much for granted. That reality was confirmed Sunday night.

The younger generation left early … meaning those yet

The Shepherd Calls: Like Mother, Like Daughter

ShepherdCalls_WPby Dr. H. Wade Paris

It was late in 1954 when I first met the young lady who would become the mother of my children. There was nothing particularly unusual about that visioning. I was in the choir of our church, and she was sitting in the congregation a few rows back. Since I was a new member, it was likely the first time I had ever seen her. I

Lost an hour? Well, sleep on it

Spike_WPSomething’s  changed since Daylight Savings took effect. I lost my hour.

My internal clock used to kick me awake more than an hour before the morning alarm. But with the time change, I now awake right on time …which means I lost my “extra” hour. Just to sleep. Like always.

That doesn’t seem fair.

If I’m gonna sleep away my hour, I’d rather it be by a nap at a

Missouri looking to bounce back from a tough week

by Benjamin Herrold

There may be a college basketball program that had a worse week than Missouri last week, but none are coming to mind right now.

First came a horrendous 33-point loss to Arkansas at home on Tuesday, Missouri’s worst loss ever at Mizzou Arena. You have to go back to 1945 to find a bigger home loss for the Tigers. That debacle came against a rebuilding Arkansas team

Missouri picks up first SEC win, prepares for challenging stretch of games

by Benjamin Herrold

Missouri won a game it really needed last Saturday night, defeating Auburn 76-61 at Mizzou Arena in the Southeastern Conference home opener.

Missouri (8-7, 1-1 in SEC play through Sunday) used a late first-half surge to take a 39-24 lead at halftime, and then kept Auburn at arm’s length throughout the second half. D’Angelo Allen, who had not seen much playing time in recent weeks, provided a

Missouri heads into SEC play, hosts Auburn Saturday

by Benjamin Herrold

Missouri finished the nonconference portion of its schedule with an easy 81-50 home win over Savannah State. The Tigers head into Southeastern Conference play at 7-6, a game better than last year.

Wes Clark continued his run of playing well, scoring 22 points on 9-of-10 shooting. It would be helpful for Mizzou heading into conference play if he can continue to emerge as a scoring threat.

Poosey Digest: Dear Virginia…

PooseyDigest_WPDear Virginia,

…even though your name may be Jayson or Jenny or Brittany. You once asked if there was a Santa Claus and someone gave you an answer. But this Christmas you may have another question: Why do people do bad things?

Some really bad things have been happening in our schools lately and if you were like me, you’ve been very sad even though we didn’t know any of

MU loses to NC State, next faces Illinois in Braggin’ Rights game

Missouri lost 73-59 to North Carolina State on Saturday at Mizzou Arena. Missouri looked good for the first fourth of the game, but then NC State showed it was the far better team. The Wolfpack’s lead ballooned to 20 points in the second half before the Tigers got a few fairly meaningless baskets late to narrow the final margin.

The game continued a troubling trend for Missouri (5-5 through Sunday).

MU names football head coach

by Benjamin Herrold

Last week Missouri named defensive coordinator Barry Odom to replace Gary Pinkel as its head football coach.

Georgia hired alum Kirby Smart and South Carolina hired Will Muschamp, so all three SEC East head coach openings were filled with defensive coordinators.

As with most new things, there is a mix of excitement and concern about the new, unknown era lying ahead. It’s still a little hard to
