Money and Politics: We Need Change Now!

by Lee H. Hamilton

I’ve seen a lot over my decades in politics, and not much alarms me. But I have to be blunt: Money is poisoning our political system.

The people who matter most to a representative democracy — the ordinary voters in whose interests elected politicians are supposed to act — feel as though they’ve become an afterthought in the political process. The tidal wave of money washing

Peas and Beans, Part One

by Tim Baker, Regional Horticulturist

The legume family of plants is an interesting one. It includes everything from common beans and peas to soybeans to peanuts to kudzu. It even includes larger species such as mimosa, redbud, carob, and locust trees. Some legumes are toxic to humans, but many food crops come from this family.

The peas and beans are widely varied in size, shape, taste, and color. For my

We Get What We Deserve

by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

PooseyDigest_WPNo one could ever quite figure out the Skinner sisters. Both in their 90s, they’d been raised in the same house, both married, then after 50-plus years both were widowed within months of each other so they moved into a big old two-story house on the east edge of town. But that’s where the similarities came to a crashing halt. Maude, the older

To Be or Not to be a Church

by Dr. H. Wade Paris

The Associated Press recently reported a story about a swingers club converting into a church. A group in downtown Nashville, reportedly a swingers group, known as the Social Club sold its building and purchased a new one several miles away. In some ways, the new location is suitable; it is isolated at the end of a dead end street. However, it is near Good Pasture

Good Thinking: Marriage for the Moderns

by Dr. Don Kuehle

The institution of marriage is as old as Adam & Eve. In the beginning God, in his divine wisdom, designed marriage to be between one man and one woman. Marriage is the bedrock upon which the family is built. And the family is the key to a solid society. As marriage goes, so goes society.

The Bible tells us that Jesus attended a wedding in the

Divisions Vanish in Christ

by Pastor Steve Ellison

The first half of Colossians describes how Christ is preeminent in all things. The second half gives us a test so that we can objectively measure how well we understand that Christ is first, last, and everything in between in everything. There is no need to guess if Christ is preeminent in our lives.

The first question on the test, which we looked at two weeks

Capitol Perspectives: Challenging the Legislature

by Phill Brooks

Missouri’s Republican legislature has laid the groundwork for a classic confrontation with the Democratic governor.

This year, the GOP-dominating legislature sent Gov. Jay Nixon bills he normally would veto including unemployment compensation cuts, welfare cuts and restrictions to his budget powers.

They sent the entire operating budget to Nixon early enough that they can take their veto override votes before the session ends rather than waiting until

Let’s Pretend

by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

PooseyDigest_WPLet’s just pretend…just for a minute, okay? Let’s pretend that I’ve just spent $10 or $15 or $50 for my seat tonight. Let’s pretend that I’m sitting in the row behind you, then you decide to hold your phone camera up in front of my face to make a movie of what’s happening onstage. I lean right, you lean right, I go left

‘I hope you can live with this decision…’

Mike Leeper is the big brother both my wife and my sister-in-law never had. They are cousins who grew up together. As kids Mike spent many summers on the farm with the girls, away from his home in the city.

When I finally met Mike, I realized he was just a bit older but he always acted like a big kid. He was fun. He was a Vietnam vet and
