Missouri loses Homecoming game, travels to Georgia next

by Benjamin Herrold

As usual, Missouri put on a good show for its Homecoming game, with the campus throughly decorated, a pep rally next to the familiar dome of Jesse Hall, and over 70,000 people at Faurot Field for the game. Under the lights, with the No. 11 Florida Gators were in town, the crowd was charged.

And then, the game started. Florida is a very good team, and first-year

Poosey Digest: The Lookalike Contest

PooseyDigest_WPby Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.
It’s an annual event in our little “village” when our church, the Semi-United Amalgamated Evangelical Brethren and Sistren holds it Fall Bazaar. If you ever wondered why these things are called bazaars I’d simply invite you to attend ours. Aside from the usual collection of soups, salads, pies and potholders, the church prides itself on our annual Produce Lookalike Contest. The rules are

Poosey Digest: Getting into shape

PooseyDigest_WPby Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.
For a mere $79 you can buy a yoga mat that will roll itself up. I’m not kidding. Health and wellness enthusiasts who want to take the time and put forth the effort to do yoga can now save themselves the awful strain of rolling up their own mat. Seems to defeat the purpose but since I’m not yet a yoga enthusiast I’ll

Missouri hosts Florida in big Homecoming game

by Benjamin Herrold

On a mostly clear, crisp fall day at Faurot Field, freshman quarterback Drew Lock trotted out for his first start at Missouri to roars and applause from the crowd. It felt like the beginning of a new era for Mizzou football.

Lock has shown enormous potential as a freshman. So with Maty Mauk suspended for an unspecified violation of team rules, Lock got the start Saturday as

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
