  • April 22 is Good Friday and Earth Day so we should all be in a good frame of mind to do our part to improve the world. Next Friday, we can put it to good use and plant some trees in celebration of Arbor Day. Surely we can top the first Arbor Day in 1872, when it was estimated that one million trees were planted in Nebraska alone.

    • Mary Beth Dorgan brought the message about the Triumphant Entry. Jimmy Burford had the message Sunday evening.

  • Last month, a man I know had surgery on his hand, the second surgery on the same hand.

    After the first surgery, his hand had lost quite a bit of feeling. On the one hand (no pun intended), that meant it didn’t hurt any more. But on the other, no feeling meant he couldn’t do his job, which requires using both hands and all his fingers.
