One year. This week marked Joe Biden’s first anniversary in the White House. And no matter how rosy of a picture he tries to paint about the state of our nation; no matter how many times he tries to shift blame to Republicans despite his party having unified control of the House, Senate, and…
Everything is on-line now. You can order food, medicine, look up recipes, how-to videos, and even video-chat with far away family with a computer or your phone. Having the world readily available is a huge help if you know where to go.
Since our nation’s founding, American elections have all featured some basic, commonsense rules.
There are a few places in Appleton folks gather to drink coffee and swap stories each morning. I typically catch up on news at the hardware or feed store when I’m picking up supplies or feed. Kids’ ballgames, the weather, markets and, yes, the craziness in Washington, D.C. are the usual topics.
It’s January, and the Legislature is back at work in Jefferson City.
January 7, the Supreme Court held one of the most important hearings of my lifetime. They considered two challenges to rules that have been brought forth by the Biden administration to impose vaccine requirements on employers. Overturning these rules is absolutely essential to Americans’ fre…
We returned to the State Capitol Building Wednesday, January 5 for the start of the 2022 legislative session, which is officially the Second Regular Session of the 101st General Assembly.
Another session of the Missouri General Assembly is upon us, and this year looks to be a busy one. With redistricting, members running for higher office and many passionate legislative disagreements, 2022 should have no shortage of fireworks at the state capitol.
The American people count on politicians to shoot straight and be honest with them. But this year, President Biden’s agenda has been sold to the public with two major lies.
On January 20, 2021, Joe Biden took his oath of office and promised to unify the country. But only hours after making that pledge, he abandoned that promise and pushed forth with the most partisan agenda I’ve seen in my lifetime.
The holiday season arrived swiftly this year, and the pace only quickens as I advance in age— or at least that is how it feels. It seems just like yesterday my siblings and I were fighting over the JC Penney and Sears Christmas catalogs in August and driving our parents crazy until December 25.
With the start of a new year, everyone wants to know what changes this year will bring and for those on Social Security benefits and Medicare. There are a few changes.
As we all come together to celebrate this time of year with our families, friends and neighbors, I wanted to take this opportunity to share our appreciation with the Fredericktown community.
Since day one, Joe Biden has carried out an agenda that does nothing but make life harder for the working class. Whether through his unconstitutional Executive Orders or his Washington Democrat allies in Congress, every single policy this administration has pursued has harmed the working cla…
After the pandemic forced many families to alter or cancel plans for get-togethers last year, many of us were looking forward to a more traditional holiday season this year. Instead, people are realizing they’re either going to have to scale back their celebrations or be prepared to pay a lo…
At a time when it has become difficult to find many areas of agreement in Washington, the outdoors have proven to be a real uniting force.
My family and I could not be more excited to be back at the Lake of the Ozarks experiencing Missouri Farm Bureau Annual Meeting in person this weekend. Our kids look forward all year to the food, the friends and the fun. Jennifer and I love those parts too, but we also enjoy the robust discu…
Families and friends across Missouri and our nation joined around the table to celebrate Thanksgiving. This time of fellowship provides me with an opportunity for reflection, restoration, and gives me hope for the future.
Turkey, gravy, and all the fixings make for many happy campers around my house during the Thanksgiving season. Unfortunately, as we’ve been reporting and have seen firsthand statewide, the ongoing supply chain hold ups combined with inflation will hit our wallets on these purchases too.
This week, Washington Democrats rammed through Congress the largest tax-and-spending bill in American history. This bill brings about a fundamental change to the relationship between the Federal Government and working-class families across the country by inserting federal control into every …
State Sen. Holly Thompson Rehder, R-Scott City, has been tentatively named chairman of the Joint Committee on Child Abuse and Neglect. The 14-member committee consisting of members of both the Missouri Senate and House of Representatives voted to name Sen. Thompson Rehder chairman during a h…
Of all the holidays we celebrate each year, Thanksgiving is my favorite.
Christmas is upon us, and there are so many things to do.
I’m a notoriously last-minute Christmas shopper, but I come by it honestly.
When I was a child we would spend every major holiday at my grandparents' house; Easter, Thanksgiving, Christmas all the family gathered together having fun, eating food and sharing stories. These memories are precious to me, and I enjoyed all of the traditions we had.
