The resurgence of a baseball fan

 Posted on March 4, 2015 at 12:11 pm

When I was a kid everyone in my family was a baseball fan. Living in the St. Louis metropolitan area, it was only natural that they worshipped the Cardinals. In fact, I can remember going to St. Louis as a youngster and watching Lou Brock play his very last game. As the years moved on I would console myself during Missouri winters with the thought that every day brought the

    1,109,463 is the number of workers employed by small businesses in Missouri. With such an astounding number like that, you can see why I take my position on the House Small Business Committee very seriously. With more than half of the state’s non-farm, private workforce employed by our nearly 505,000 small businesses in Missouri, I am proud to be your voice when it comes to regulations, compliance, and being a

    Rep. Randy Pietzman

    WEEK IN REVIEW: Last week the House voted on and passed the Right-to-Work legislation (HB 116). Unfortunately, I had the flu last week (thanks to my wife), and was not there to hear the debate or cast my vote. In my absence, this passed out of the House and now moves on to the Senate. This week has pretty much been dominated by the voter ID issue. We worked hard

    One of the first books I ever read for the purpose of something more than mere enjoyment was “To Kill a Mockingbird”. As I recall, reading that particular book was part of an eighth grade English assignment and we were required to complete a number of chapters per week in order to prepare for class discussions.

    Winter is a long, lingering season in Missouri. While the rolling hills and frozen lakes are beautiful in the middle of winter, looking at a picturesque scene will not keep you or your family warm. For over a year now, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has been trying to make it more expensive for you to purchase a wood burning stove even though it is the most common, flexible and

    When I was a kid I saw a television clip in which country music entertainer Charley Rich presented the 1975 CMA Entertainer of the Year Award to John Denver. Rich, no fan of Denver, stepped back from the podium, removed a cigarette lighter and promptly set the envelope on fire. The crowd in attendance was shocked, as was Denver, who was participating via satellite. As a result of his behavior,

    The population of the United States is approximately 316 Million, of which an estimated 120 million were engaged in a common activity this past Sunday evening. No, they did not go to church; rather they all watched the Super Bowl. A great number of you probably attended a Super Bowl party with friends or family, a tradition that is so common in our society that it is second only to
