While the rosé wines seem to be everywhere this summer, we should not forget the white wines which also fit well with summer dining. more
I’ve been working – sporadically – on a project that one of my friends introduced me to. It’s called “Storyworth,” and the upshot is that each week, Storyworth asks me a question about my past, and I write an answer. Well, that is the way it’s supposed to work. For a while, I was doing my darnedest to answer the weekly question, but then things got out of hand. more
Telling the Truth. It’s one of the 10 Commandments! Evidently God takes the matter seriously. more
Despite what you may have heard on the playground, London Bridge is not falling down. In fact, it's quite sturdy. I know this because I rode over London Bridge in a taxi – one of many things I did last week during summer vacation. more
During June and July, newspapers across Missouri are publishing tens of thousands of names of people for whom the State Treasurer’s Office is holding unclaimed property totaling more than $1 billion. This is not the state’s money – it is Missourians’ money, and I am committed to returning it to its rightful owner. more
In spite of what the media may be saying or writing, wine sales are not going down and are suffering from what is plaguing everything else these days, inflation. more

It’s been two years since the Sedalia Democrat moved into its current office on West Fourth Street. I think we still catch ourselves saying it’s our “new office” from time to time, even though we’ve more than made ourselves at home. more
In 1977, when I was about 5 years old, my father bought a new Ford dump truck for his one-man landscaping business. It was big, green and loud. My 11-year-old brother Greg and I thought this was the greatest thing that could have ever happened to us. more
It is finally here. We have waited months for it, hoping that it would come earlier, but Mother Nature has her own timetable and there is no rushing her. At last, it’s summer. more
My last baby was born more than 17 years ago. I remember because I gagged nearly every day for nine months before she made her entrance into the world. more
On one of those dark, rainy, miserable days, with all of my deadlines met, I decided to clean my desk. Much to my glee, I did not find any half-eaten sandwiches, winning lottery tickets or forgotten cups of coffee but, to my chagrin, I did find notes on wines that I wanted to write about but never did. I now present them to you with an apology for tardiness. more
When driving through Warrensburg, I often observed a tall figure walking slowly but purposefully and felt comforted knowing that Larry was out birding. As his obituary concluded, Larry will be missed by those of us who knew him, and indeed, we all knew him as a “jolly good fellow.” more
