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

Remember to Say “Thanks!”

We got a reminder last week on just how fragile the delivery of your newspaper can be.

Many things have to go right and right on time for delivery to be Anormal.@ There are certain stages that narrow the work flow to a precarious place, stages where there simply is no backup or APlan B.@ Things have to work. For instance, the imagesetter MUST work (at

Missouri Opens Season with Win

Heads to Arkansas State next

by Benjamin Herrold

Missouri kicked off its season last Saturday with a 34-3 win over Southeast Missouri State University at Faurot Field. On a hot early September afternoon in Columbia, beginning the 90th season for the Tigers at Faurot, No. 24 Missouri jumped ahead early with two first quarter touchdowns from Maty Mauk to J’Mon Moore and Nate Brown.

But after that, the game slumped

Falling Leaves

The leaves have begun to fall. Relaxing in our outdoor swing, I observed the ground is covered with brown, brittle brush. Actually, I’ve seen only a few drifting down; but the covered ground tells me the air is raining leaves. The first falling leaves are sneaky. They don’t let you see them. Soon, however, they will fall in large quantities, a deluge of tree dandruff.

His Infatuation with Sterility

by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

My list of places that I can’t take husband Herb grows longer by the day. Today I added hospitals to my catalogue of banned spots.

PooseyDigest_WPWe were visiting a good friend who was mending her way out of some sort of surgery and for once Herbie thought he’d ride along. Normally the man avoids anything even vaguely medical, fearing that if he’s around

What Kind of Legacy Are You Building?

That can be a pretty heavy topic to discuss. Sometimes it’s an attention grabber on another request for you to bequeath money to something. Like a college education fund or a benevolent foundation. That’s all well and good, but that’s not what I’m thinking about. You don’t have to have money or some grandiose plan to make a lasting impression or to initiate a new tradition. And you don’t have

Ranking 2,604th Among the 3,111

I have friends who have lived in numerous locations throughout the world who choose to call Daviess County home. That’s about the nicest compliment we can expect, a “them” wanting to join “us.” And yet, I can’t help but sometimes wonder, “Why?”


Certainly, when it comes to climate and scenery, we don’t particularly stand out. We have no mountain views (Goat Mountain just outside Gallatin doesn’t count). We have no

Out of Touch

by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

The woman was incensed …out of her mind angry.

“Freida, I tried to call you twice this morning!”

PooseyDigest_WP“Happens a lot, Mildred.”

“Twice! Why didn’t you answer?”

“I wasn’t near a phone.”

“You don’t have a cell phone?”

“Sure I do. I just didn’t have it with me. Like I said, happens a lot.”

“What’s the use of having a cell phone if

Two Kinds of People

by Pastor Steve Ellison

Someone has rightly said, “There are only two kinds of people in churches: those who talk about the lost and those who talk to the lost.”

In John 4 an uncommon man stopped at a well for a conversation with a common and less than respectable woman. As the rest of the busy world went about its business, Jesus spoke truth to this woman. When she
