Give Thanks for All Things

Dw.cdrIt’s been a very, very stressful week.

Literally minutes after finishing up pages to send to the imagesetter and before the press actually got rolling on last week’s edition, priorities changed. We were physically stunned by the news. While standing in confusion and cradled in a hurting grandmother’s arms, a telephone call confirmed the unthinkable. My 2-year-old grandson, Tucker, would be in surgery within hours to remove a brain tumor

The Season of Smorgasbord

by Freida Marie Crump

I’ve always thought myself to be a peaceful person, then I’ll spend an hour with Herb in public and I tell myself that the man just needs a good slapping. Nothing can strain your pacifism like a lunk-headed husband.

We’re both fans of buffet-style eating, and we’re especially fond of oriental restaurants featuring this style of service. Of course, most oriental buffets in

The Right Side

ShepherdCalls_WPTraveling south along Interstate 49 (old Highway 71) from the final Raymore/Belton exit, one can see a tall county water tower. At first it appears to be on the left side of the highway, but the road twists and turns for the next several miles; and when you pass the tower, it is actually on the right side of the interstate.

Each time I make that journey (and I do

Sneak Attacks

by Pastor Steve Ellison

In the early days of World War II, the U.S. managed to somehow not be drawn into direct military action. That would soon change.

While no one would accuse Japan and the U.S. of being on friendly terms, the Japanese did have ambassadors in Washington, D.C. when the attack occurred. Because of the sneak attack, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt declared Dec. 7, 1941, to be a

There’s Something About a Haircut

Dw.cdrI noticed that the Chillicothe Beauty Academy is bringing back the $5 haircut, at least for a limited time as promoted in this week’s Ad Zone Christmas Express edition. I should go. Don’t ask me “How ya doin’?” unless you really want to know. I need a haircut. Bad.

Whenever I need a haircut, it’s about all I can think about. And yet, I grudge taking the time it requires.

Simplicity

by Freida Marie Crump

PooseyDigest_WPGreetings from Poosey.

The Mathewsons were unique. One-of-a-kind. Some would say eccentric. Flo and Henry Mathewson were an elderly brother and sister who lived the first house west of town, neither married, still living on the home place where they were raised.

Every morning of their adult life Flo would fix one egg and toast for Henry, and the two of them would listen to the

Missouri Needs One More Win for SEC East Title

by Benjamin Herrold

In the fourth quarter of Missouri’s game at Tennessee last Saturday, the Tigers were clinging to a 16-13 lead and facing a third-and-eight at their own 28-yard line. The crowd of nearly 96,000 had been hot all night, cheering and singing “Rocky Top” with vigor.

The crowd was thunderous, willing the Volunteer defense to make the stop, the sound echoing out of the massive, 93-year-old stadium,

Advent Hope

ShepherdCalls_WP‘Tis the season of Advent. The word “advent” means “a coming.” For Christians it denotes the coming of Christmas, the time when God came to earth as a baby. Traditionally, the four Sundays prior to Christmas and Christmas Day are celebrated as the Advent season. On each Sunday a candle in an Advent wreath is lighted, and special emphasis is given to some part of the Christmas story.

One tradition

Offending Others

by Pastor Steve Ellison

Few of us want to offend others. We truly do not want to hurt other people’s feelings. We have another motivation also. We do not want to offend others because the hurt is almost always turned back upon us. The offended person will lash out against us because they see us as the source of their hurt. However, we must understand that we really do not
