  • County will miss Moore as agent

    I was hacking away at knee-high weeds that were blanketing my garden, leaving a swath of herbicular carnage in my wake when I noticed a car slow, then pull into my driveway.

  • Thankfully there is no escape from our loving God

    I’ve been in county jails and state prisons to visit inmates.  As a high school sophomore, I toured Missouri’s maximum prison in Jefferson City, Missouri.  On that trip, I got my one and only glimpse of the gas chamber, which was then Missouri’s chosen means of execution.  

    Being inside and hearing doors lock behind you is an eerie experience, even for a visitor.  Even the thought of being locked up with no opportunity to escape gives me the willies.
