Why Government Fails, and What We Should Do About It

by Lee H. Hamilton

As election season approaches, I’ve been pondering a crucial issue about the role of government in our society. It’s that our government often fails — and that we need to address this. What’s odd is that while the frequent failures in government’s performance are very much on ordinary people’s minds, politicians don’t talk much about fixing them.

True, you might hear a few words about the

Pondering the ‘Poor Doors’

Dw.cdrI choose not to worry about getting rich personally. That’s not going to happen and, thus, is such a waste of time. But sometimes I’ll read something that makes me realize how some of this world is so very much different from realities found here.

Have you heard about “The Poor Door?”

Evidently, officials in New York City signed off on a building plan that allows a new luxury high-rise

Life Stacks Up

ShepherdCalls_WPOn a shelf beside my desk, I have a “stack of stuff.” Mail, magazines, and other “stuff” arrives more rapidly than I can process it. Each day I search through the new arrivals. Much of it I can throw away quickly. Some demands immediate attention — bills and personal correspondence; but then there are the “I don’t know what to do with this” items. Often I put those in my

Curious or Converted?

by Pastor Steve Ellison

One day after the writing of this column, I will be heading to Sturgis, S.D., for a week. I will be helping to staff an evangelism tent at the motorcycle rally. We will be encouraging people to consider the most important question ever posed to a human being. Every other issue pales, really fades to total insignificance, in the light of this question.

This is a

A Remarkable Woman

by Freida Marie Crump

PooseyDigest_WPGreetings from Poosey.

Let me tell you about a remarkable woman. Her name is Stephanie and her age hovers between 50 and 70, depending upon the time of the day, the weather, and her mood. She married young, had a couple of kids, then divorced her husband. In her words, “He was okay …for awhile. But then all he wanted to do was sit around, said

A Nice Ring to Anvil Shooting

Dw.cdrTroy Lesan is a person you should know. Troy regularly contributes articles for publication in the monthly editions of the Lake Viking News. In the latest issue, Troy writes about neighbor Jeff Hower who has an unusual hobby: shooting anvils.

This is an old timey art form. Back in the day many events closed with “ringing the anvil,” referring to the sound a blacksmith anvil makes when shot into the

The Name of the Game

ShepherdCalls_WPShe was born shortly after midnight in Manila, Philippines, on Sunday, July 27, 2014. She became the 100 millionth citizen of this Southeast Asian nation. While her birth was cause for celebration, and someone served cake; there is concern about her future. One hundred million people are a lot to care for, especially for this small country.

As you might imagine, someone dared ask, “What can we do to assure

The Writing on the Wall

Dw.cdrIt bothers me that so many of our public schools no longer teach cursive writing. I guess that’s because I relate back to the times of “B.C.” …before computers.

It’s true few of us handwrite very much of anything anymore; I know I don’t. I wouldn’t want to write this weekly column without the speed and convenience of a computer. And if you were forced to decipher my thoughts from

Good Thinking: Proud to Be an American

by Dr. Don Kuehle

Some things come my way that are soooo good that I have to pass them on! This is one of them.

Some time ago, a notice appeared in a Pakistani newspaper: “A reward will be given to anyone who kills an American, any American.” An Australian dentist, living in Pakistan, wrote this reply: “I’m writing this to let everyone know what an American is, so you
