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

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
