I don’t like being the center of attention.

As a citizen of Franklin County who has been around for some time, it is disturbing to see the large number of crime reports published in The Missourian. We remember when there were front pages of this newspaper that didn’t have a single crime story.
We are not a close follower of the Hollywood elites of today, except like many of you we do hear their political outbursts when there are elections, especially in presidential years. Most of these stars of the screen are about as liberal as they come. Why?
The blow was stunning but not a knockout punch. We’ve been missing in action for three weeks. Knee surgery will do that, and if you didn’t accept the fact that you are old, you are more inclined to do so after the surgeon performs the invasion with his instruments. We are grateful to Dr. Dav…
The United States leads the world in the production and refining of oil and the production of natural gas. I think it is important to consider the benefits of that status in relation to geopolitical and national security issues.

I’m not really a sports girl, and that is a very, very large understatement. In my life, I don’t think I can honestly say I’ve ever “watched” a sports game in its entirety, with the exception of maybe a nephew’s high school basketball game or two.
Many people seem shocked at the recent savagery of a mob of students at Middlebury College, who rioted to prevent Charles Murray from addressing a student group who had invited him to speak. They also inflicted injuries requiring hospitalization on a woman from the faculty who was with him.
