Hobby Lobby: Much to Ponder

Dw.cdrThe nearest Hobby Lobby is at St. Joseph, almost 50 miles away. There are 11 stores within a 100 miles of Gallatin. But that distance melted away when the U.S. Supreme Court struck down the Obama administration’s mandate to require private companies to provide contraceptives to employees.

Have you paid attention to the Hobby Lobby controversy and recent Supreme Court decision? How close to home does the Supreme Court ruling

Will There Be a Fall Festival in Gallatin This Year?

Dw.cdrProbably not, unless someone steps forward immediately and in a commanding manner. Time to organize properly grows short. And perhaps too many people simply don’t care anymore.

The first modern Chautauqua stage in Gallatin was set in 1986. The festival was an expansion of the popular Lions Club Flea Market. The previous year over 130 booths had lined the square on Flea Market Sunday; the first Chautauqua added 50 more.

Voting on the Obvious

Dw.cdrOnce upon a time a man chose to quarry rock for his livelihood. This was a small family-owned operation miles from the nearest town (which was hardly a town at all, numbering less than 200 souls). The nearest neighbor to the rock quarry was unaffected by the occasional dynamite blasting, blasting rock being a necessary part of doing business. The quarry was that remote.

Times changed. An interstate highway made

Drivin’ Ms. Lizzie

Dw.cdrOne of our drivers is gone from work for a few weeks. Suddenly who drives what is taking a higher priority in decisions to be made around this office. Driving has always commanded my attention, it seems, even during times when I unwittingly took the privilege for granted.

My first real job was driving dump trucks. Much of what money I would have at my disposal during college depended on

Tears Sometimes Fall on Father’s Day

Dw.cdrSunday is Father’s Day. I dunno why, but from all the blessings and memories I cherish from my father, I sit thinking about the only time I remember seeing Dad actually cry.

I’d borrowed his small black and white photograph of the Navy repair ship. The ship was Dad’s “home” in the Pacific Theater during the last year of World War II. At the time, we were still developing film

Going Wholeheartedly to the Dogs

Dw.cdrLiz and I know quite a bit about the “empty nest.” But there’s more laughter at our house since we acquired a new puppy this past week.

We chose to grieve a few months after we were forced to put Laddie, our little Sheltie, down last winter. As a practical matter, it’s much easier to house train a new dog in warm weather than during winter’s cold. But not having

A Sesquicentennial Proposal

Dw.cdrWhat do you do for something 150 years old?

This has been on the back burner for some time now, knowing this week was coming. The Gallatin North Missourian will embark on its 150th year after printing this week’s edition. And before you’re finished reading this column, we’ll float a balloon about an idea on a way to celebrate.

Whew, 150 years …how’d we get here?

A Decision of Uncommon Common Sense

Dw.cdrIt took seven years, but now the opening prayer that precedes the aldermen’s board meetings at city hall are politically correct. Here’s what I mean.

On May 5 the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in favor of Greece, NY, which had been sued for opening local government meetings with prayer by a single faith (Christian). The court got it right but it was close – the vote being 5-4 among the

Just Another Onionhead

Dw.cdrHamburgers hot off the grill scream for fresh tomatoes and onions. I didn’t always think so. I don’t exactly remember when I started really liking onions but now I consider a sweet onion one of life’s little pleasures. And few onions come sweeter than those from Vidalia, GA.

Since 1990 the official state vegetable of Georgia is the Vidalia onion. These onions are acclaimed internationally as the world’s sweetest.
