  • I realize there are many people that are genuinely concerned for our nation. We knew all along that whoever won the election, there would be a large amount of strife, worry and disappointment but we pray and hope that over time, we will agree to press forward and keep our focus on God.
    We are never going to agree about everything but we can at least put forth an effort to work together and be unified on the issues we feel the same about.

  • Imagine with me that you are starting a rebuild project on an old car, where would you start this project? What is the most important thing that must be working in a car? This question is rhetorical because you know the answer. You would start with the engine. Otherwise this car is just a yard ornament, which there are a lot of yard ornaments in Grant County (no offense).

  • What does it mean to “be holy?” What does holiness look like?
    Apostle Peter quoted in his epistle in 1 Peter 1:16, from the Old Testament book of Leviticus of the Bible. He was addressing the Jewish believers in Christ, new Christian converts who were dispersed into various parts of the Middle East.
    He was making a point in his letter declaring the necessity of living a holy life that is revealed in a demeanor of conforming to the Holy Spirit leading.

  • By the time I left the newsroom I was ready to rip out my hair or stick a hot poker in my ears.

    All day the noise and commotion drove me to distraction -- and it had been a fairly quiet day. I was alone in the pod I share with two other reporters and my phone only rang once.


  • In A.D. 64, according to history, Rome was ruled by one of the most wicked emperors to ever be named in the nation’s history. Emperor Nero was so wicked that he burnt Rome to the ground just to prove that he could build a bigger and better city.
    The citizens expected Nero of committing such evil acts, so to veer the attention away from him, he began to blame to Christians of the city for the crime.
    By that time, Paul had preached the Gospel to literally millions of people, and had the reputation of leading the church in the revival movement.

  • I’m a sucker for a reunion story.
    In 2008, I covered the story of a couple who had been married and then divorced for 52 years. They had lost contact with each other until their daughter found her dad through an Internet search. By that time he was seriously ill, but well enough to come to Florida to be reunited with his ex-wife.
    The couple remarried, and the man died less than a month later. It was quite a story.

  • The Captain John Lillard, NSDAR chapter, honored Grant County World War II veterans in remembrance of the 75th anniversary of Pearl Harbor. Vice Regent Elisabeth Chiang, began with remarks about the 75th Anniversary of Pearl Harbor.  Chiang reminded everyone that on Dec. 7, 1941 the United States of America came under a surprise attack by the

  • Last year, we became quasi-temporary guardians of our youngest daughter’s two cats, Mohawk and Target.
    I say quasi-temporary because the daughter has since moved out after staying with us for a year, but the cats are still with us.
    Once our daughter left, we decided to move the cats’ litter box from the guest bathroom to the now-empty spare bedroom.
    To us humans, that’s a simple change, but not to the cats.

  • December has ushered in some seasonal weather with daytime temperatures hovering in the 40s.  For us, this is perfect winter weather to work in.  Brisk, but not too cold, it can be invigorating for animals and people alike.  The sheep and the big dogs seem to prefer it, in fact.  The playful frolicking is proof! The clear blue sky on a chilly winter day can be even more beautiful with a little winter plant interest.
