Mizzou drops SEC opener

by Benjamin Herrold

After two weeks of Missouri playing shaky games but finding a way to win, the jig was up Saturday night in Kentucky. The Wildcats beat Missouri 21-13 in the Tigers’ SEC opener.

It was a defensive game, as you might expect when two teams play that each scored exactly 9 points the week before. For the most part, Missouri’s defense played a good game, but the Tigers

Giddy up Giddy up

Dw.cdrBy comparison to other shows, the car show at Chautauqua this past weekend wasn’t so big. There were enough entries to fill parking spaces on both sides of East Grand from the 4-way stop to city hall, and the quality of those displayed was very good. You might say the attraction was quality rather than quantity and be entirely accurate.

Car shows are more than just the vehicles, of course.

After narrow win, Missouri heads into SEC play

by Benjamin Herrold

Saturday was a beautiful day for a football game in Columbia, with blue skies and fairly mild temperatures compared to the steamy conditions for the season opener Labor Day weekend. But while the weather was beautiful, the actual game was decidedly not beautiful.

Missouri (3-0), a heavy favorite, held on for a bizarre 9-6 win over Connecticut (2-1).

The difference came from Missouri blocking two kicks, one

Poosey Digest: Ronald Crump

by Freida Marie Crump

PooseyDigest_WPGreetings from Poosey.
I endure my husband’s family reunions like a yearly medical exam as I look at Herb’s relatives and think I may have gotten the pick of the litter. Most of them are tolerable, but I guess that every family has one irritation that we manage to endure for a couple of hours every summer. In the case of the Crump family, it’s Ronald.

A Death Greatly Exaggerated

Dw.cdrHe hadn’t stopped by in quite awhile. He sat down in front of my desk, looking very somber as he said, “How ya doin’?”
I thought he was inquiring about my health. So, he rephrased. “I mean, with internet and the bad way for newspapers these days, how’s your business doing?”
I knew what he meant. I’ve been a newspaper hack here approaching 40 long years. A community newspaper’s health

Poosey Digest: Getting noticed

PooseyDigest_WPby Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

I’d gathered a few friends for lunch at a nearby downtown square recently when suddenly the ice in our glasses began to rattle. Then the floor began vibrating and within seconds the plate glass in the café window shook with a violence that I thought was only confined to the West Coast earthquake zone, and before long we could no longer hear ourselves

MU Grinds out 11th Straight Road Win

by Benjamin Herrold

It wasn’t always pretty, but Missouri churned out a 27-20 win at Arkansas State on Saturday night.

Aided by two first-half Tiger interceptions, Arkansas State (0-2) took a 17-10 lead into halftime. But Missouri (2-0) battled back to earn its 11th straight road win.

As has often been the case over the last two years, the Tiger defense played a starring role, holding Arkansas State to 217

The Shepherd’s Call: Relationships

ShepherdCalls_WPby Dr. Wade Paris

“I just hit your car,” she said.
“What?” I said sleepily. I’d been sound asleep.
“I hit your car,” she repeated. It was my daughter Susan. We were spending the night at her house. They live on a cul de sac, and the only place to park was in their driveway. She raised her garage door electronically, then backed out without looking. She does it every
