If Every Food Had a Label…

by Freida Marie Crump

PooseyDigest_WPGreetings from Poosey.

I’m just taking a wild stab here, but I’m guessing that if you’re so dumb that you buy a huge bucket of buttered popcorn at the movie theatre, slathered with salt and fortified with every fat in the civilized world, and if you don’t realize this will hurt your diet, you’re also so dumb that you can’t read a label on the box

An Asset or Albatross?

Some talk around town has City Hall taking the lead in determining the future of the cupola building on North Main. That’s good!

City Hall taking charge of this problem property makes sense. We’ve got good people serving on the board. We should encourage our aldermen to take a leadership role to coordinate what’s to happen. With the city’s commitment comes stability and an opportunity for individuals and community groups

Capitol Perspectives: Deadly, Devious and Disabling Details

by Phill Brooks

In the weeks before the 2015 legislative session, two issues have emerged as dominant — Ferguson and government ethics. Yet, I wonder whether conflicts over details will be fatal.

For years, I’ve seen well-intentioned efforts by Missouri public officials crash on the shores of details. Think back to last year when legislative leaders expressed pride at pulling together a complex compromise on unaccredited school districts. There was

Good Thinking: How Far to Bethlehem?

by Dr. Don Kuehle

Every year, thousands of people travel to Bethlehem to be a part of the Christmas crowd. They think, perhaps, that being in the very place where the Christ-child was born will make Him more real to them. Every year, millions of people do not get to travel to Bethlehem. Most of us have never stood with the faithful around the manger-bed. Most of us have

Season to Be Jolly

by Dr. H. Wade Paris

ShepherdCalls_WP“‘Tis the season to be jolly.” At least, that is what the song says. Truthfully, however, not everyone is jolly at Christmas. Admittedly, all the world should rejoice. Christmas is the birthday of Jesus our Savior. Nevertheless, things are not always as they should be. Perhaps we can understand an unbeliever would lack joy at Christmas. For them, it is just an over-commercialized holiday.

Unfortunately,

The Perfect Christmas Gift

by Pastor Steve Ellison

Every one of us has faced the difficult task of purchasing a Christmas gift for the individual who already has everything. In reality it only seems that this person has everything. No person has everything. However, God does have everything.

God states in Exodus 19, Deuteronomy 10, Psalm 24, Psalm 50, and 1 Corinthians 10 that the whole world and all it contains and all who

Try to Ruin Scrooge’s Day

by Freida Marie Crump

PooseyDigest_WPGreetings from Poosey.

Christmas is probably not the most appropriate time of year to think of skinflints, but every time the yuletide seasons rolls around I think of the various Scrooges I’ve met in my life.

One of the weirdest ducks to ever waddle ‘round Poosey was a minister. I won’t mention the denomination lest the Methodists get angry. I’ll call him Pastor Bob since I

Are We Smiling?

Dw.cdrWhat do you think about whenever you walk or drive along the east side of the Gallatin square?

It’s hard to overlook the gaping hole in the middle of the block. The business buildings line up like teeth in a smile, and the “front tooth” that the fire took out infects the whole town. We’re all anxious to see what, if anything, fixes the gap.

The same can be said

Losing Our Sense of Humor

by Freida Marie Crump

PooseyDigest_WPGreetings from Poosey.

It was a tiny item on page three of the Chicago Tribune… one of those curiosity items to the fill space on an otherwise un-newsworthy Monday morning. Lt. Brian Keller used his unmarked Dodge Charger with emergency lights to pull over his son’s school bus. The boy had forgotten to take his lunch to school so, as a sort of a joke, Keller
