Walk and Bike to School Day Is Coming Soon

Wednesday, October 4th is Walk and Bike to School Day.

The Evidence of Faith’s Substance Subject: American Culture, Hurricanes and Football… What we can learn from Biblical Marriage

Genesis 2:24-25 “They shall become one flesh. They were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.”

The Evidence of Faith's Substance: Constitution Day Celebrating One of America's Two Sacred Texts

Matthew 4:4 “Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.”

On September 17th, America celebrated the 230th anniversary of the signing of the Constitution in Philadelphia, PA.  There were 39 singers of the Constitution on September 17, 1787. Only 11 years earlier, on August 2, 1776, 56 men signed the Declaration of Independence that began the process of creating the longest-running free society in the history of mankind. By signing it, these men committed treason against England. As Stephan Hopkins, delegate from Rhode Island, signed, he declared to the men around him that "My hand trembles, but my heart does not." Everyone knew they were signing their death sentence.

Letter to the Editor from Senate Candidate Hillary Shields

Republicans in the Missouri legislature should be ashamed of themselves. During the veto session, all but five Republicans voted to take away in-home care services for senior and disabled Missourians, including my opponent in the upcoming special election. He had a chance to take stand with the most vulnerable Missourians, but when it came time to fight, Mike Cierpiot cowed to Governor Greitens and his mean-spirited veto of HCB3. 

Letter to the Editor: Hunting Season Emphasizes the Importance of Family-Friendly Fees

To the Editor:

For many Missourians, autumn is a time of family gatherings. Thanksgiving is the most obvious occasion, but for thousands, hunting season also serves as an opportunity to spend time with parents, children, extended family, and those friends who might as well be part of the family, too.

#practices4life - September

Hello, friends. With summer wrapping up and school starting and vacation schedules falling to the wayside, you may now be busier than ever as a permanent road warrior traveling between work, practices, games, events, and more. Whether you are an overscheduled parent or just plain overscheduled, this month’s column is for you. 

We are going to take a break from the mental aspects of our practice and work on self-care. I can hear it already: “Jim, when do I possibly have time for something like that?” More important, what happens to us if we don’t make the time to nurture our well-being? Here’s a hint, it’s not good for us or anyone in our orbit. So first, let’s define what the different aspects of self-care look like. 

Representative Rebecca Roeber’s Capitol Report

Missouri House Convenes for Annual Veto Session

The members of the Missouri House of Representatives came together Wednesday afternoon to discuss the pieces of legislation that were approved by the General Assembly but vetoed by the governor. Of the handful of bills to consider, HCB 3 received all of the discussion. Members debated the merits of overriding the governor’s veto versus working together to find another funding solution to preserve in-home and nursing care for more than 8,000 disabled Missourians. 


Nicole Galloway Endorsement

The Missouri State Council of Fire Fighters is proud to announce its unanimous endorsement of Nicole Galloway for Missouri Auditor. “Her steadfast resolve to protect Missourians hard earned tax dollars and her commitment to hold both politicians and political subdivisions accountable for their actions has earned our highest endorsement,” said Missouri State Council of Fire Fighters President Sherwood Smith.

Letter to the Editor: Unfair Recall

Full disclosure: I met Chris Moreno in 2010 when he was running the Will Royster Missouri State Representative campaign. I work for a community newspaper in Kansas City and I occasionally exchange messages with Mr. Moreno.

Public service is often a thankless job and you have to have a thick skin to withstand some of the personal attacks that one endures when running for office. Councilman Chris Moreno was removed from his position after losing a recall election earlier this year. 

The Evidence of Faith’s Substance: Harvey and Irma Part 1 - What Keeps a Marriage Together

Genesis 2:24 “A man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife.”

Since 1979, the National Hurricane Center has used men’s and women’s names for tropical storms that begin in the Atlantic Ocean. We have just seen an unprecedented event: within one month, two hurricanes that have hit the United States. And the names that came up in the rotation? The Category 4 hurricane that hit Texas on August 28 was named ‘Harvey’ and has been called the worst natural disaster in Texas history. Then, on September 10, Category 4 hurricane Irma hit the Florida Keys and moved up through Florida, leaving devastation in its path. Whenever a hurricane leaves this much damage, its name is retired from the list. So this will most likely be the last time Harvey and Irma are used in tandem for hurricanes.
