He heals the broken in heart, and binds up their wounds. (Psalms 147:3) (Greek Septuagint - Psalms 146:3) Jesus once told a story about a poor fellow who was attacked by outlaws and thieves, "A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, when he was attacked by robbers. They stripped him of...
A few days ago I received a renewal notice on my Rural Fire Protection membership and it showed a 100% increase. It was double the amount that it had cost in past years. It is a well-known fact that if you have more business than you can handle, you raise your prices and thereby lose some...
As a kid, I would be incensed whenever there was bias, unfairness and outright cheating evident.  I thought whether a game of cards, a boxing match or a trade, there should be an outcome based on rules or guidelines which were followed mutually. No one would tolerate going to a bank asking for...

Kudos to Howell County Collector Janet Crow for trying to save taxpayers more than 50,000 dollars per year. The county agreement with the cities of West Plains and Willow Springs calls for 3 percent of the taxes collected to go directly to the collector. This resulted in 2022 the previous...
I would like to thank everyone who donated time and effort in assisting with the 4th of July Parade, and events prior to the Parade. Without the support and backing of our community this would not have been possible. I would also like to give a special thanks to the person who anonymously donated...
This is in response to the Letter to the Editor on June 21, 2023. I have only written one Letter to the Editor. Unfortunately, it was never printed. We have subscribed to the HCN before the present ownership, unlike the borrowed paper Diane F. Jeffery, born in Modesto, California in 1949. Diane...
