I’m growing weary of being lied to about President Biden’s health. The latest example involves the physical he recently underwent. more
The Iowa Capital Dispatch reported this week that “The [Iowa] Senate Appropriations Committee approved a bill Tuesday adding legal protections for pesticide manufacturers over failure to warn consumers about the potential health risks associated with use of their products. more
I’m concerned about my eyes. Oh, not my vision. It’s still bad. No, I’m concerned because the “German” is coming and coming quickly. more
To say that I love words is an understatement. more
On June 16, 1896, a crime occurred in Sedalia and was reported by the Sedalia Democrat in its daily edition on June 17 and its weekly edition on June 18, but the nature of the reporting leaves several questions unanswered. more
Instructor: “Now, wrap the fabric around your wrists and then pull yourself upside down to do the inverted starfish.” more
This year marks the 20th year I’ve been organizing exhibits and showing art in Sedalia. more
I have a long to-do list waiting for me after I write this column. So long, in fact, that I might be able to get through the day without thinking too much about what day it actually is. Today is March 15. The Ides of March. The day before my son’s birthday. Diagnosis day. more
It’s “Sunshine Week,” a time when we celebrate one of the bedrocks of American democracy: Open government. It’s timed to coincide with the birthday of James Madison, known as the father of the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights. Madison believed deeply in the importance of access to information in a free society, and in the press as an essential tool for self-governance. more
I’ve been interested in the recent kerfuffle about the Special Counsel’s report regarding not charging President Biden with unlawful retention of classified documents. It’s interesting not only because of the subject, but also because the Special Counsel’s report didn’t exactly match up with the transcript of the actual interview. For instance, the report states that Mr. Biden is, paraphrasing here, an old man with a bad memory, including not remembering when his son died. more
For those who celebrate Lent starting on Ash Wednesday, we are about two-thirds of the way through Lent. We use Lent as a time to remind ourselves we are sinners in need of a Savior. A Savior in Jesus Christ has come… and we are not the Savior, but certainly in need of one. more
Following a train robbery near the water tank outside Otterville at 2:37 a.m. on Aug. 24, 1890, Detective DeLong quickly organized a posse consisting of Sheriff Smith, Constable Ramsey, Deputy Constable Smith, Officer Frank Shackles, Bert Stryker, Dill Blair, and some Sedalia Bazoo reporters. more
My mom taught me not to brag, but I’ll make an exception this one time. Because after my last few trips to the store, I’ve decided I’m the best of the best when it comes to these three abilities: more
I cast my vote at the Republican caucus March 2, which was hosted on the Missouri State Fairgrounds. The caucus was democracy in action, with voters not casting ballots but voting with their bodies as they stood up to be counted for one of the two presidential candidates seeking the nomination, Donald Trump and Nikki Haley. more
Last week, Governor Mike Parson commuted the prison sentence of a criminal who in 2021 drove drunk and struck a stalled vehicle on I-435 in Kansas City at roughly 84 miles per hour. There were children in the stalled car. One child, a five-year-old girl, suffered a broken skull, bleeding under the skull, bruising of the brain and a traumatic brain injury. The drunk man’s blood alcohol level at the time of the crash was .113. Yahoo News reports that the criminal had already served time for a road rage incident in 2007 in which he pointed a gun at another driver. more
“Long ago, and oh, so far away,” my roommate Debbie (yes, another one!) and I often went to a little Irish bar in Waldo in Kansas City to listen to the music played by an Irish band. They rollicked and rolled some traditional Irish music, such as “Galway Girl,” made us cry as they sang “Oh, Danny Boy” and “Wild Colonial Boy,” and gave us what we would have recognized as “standards,” such as “When Irish Eyes Are Smiling.” But the one song that tightened our throats so much that we couldn’t sing along was “Irish Lullaby,” the final song in one of Debbie’s – and Max’s and my – favorite Christmas movies: “Going My Way,” with Bing Crosby and Barry Fitzgerald. more
We do not see Irish-brand wine much in the U.S. The better Irish wines are actually grown in South America and labeled in Ireland. more
In modern parlance, such a question of human value seems borderline absurd. We’ve been told since childhood that we’re special and can become anything we want. For many of us, the cognitive reflex in responding to such a question is to answer in the affirmative without a second thought. more
While spring calving and spring bull sales may dominate producers’ current thought process, planning for weaned fall calves might slip through the cracks. Two items to pay close attention to for weaned calves are value of gain and cost per pound of gain. Having an idea of these two calculations can provide some guidance on how weaned calves should be managed. more
