  • A storm came through our area in Grant County on March 1 and many of us lost power for our homes and business. I personally had no air conditioning power and had some flooding issues in my apartment due to a tree falling on power lines nearby. When we do lose power and the lights go out we are essentially forced to go back to primitive times of when there was no electricity nor power plants nor electrical poles or cables at all.

  • When talking about the retirement phase of life, it is often referred to as the ‘golden years:’ a time for rest and relaxation, but more and more grandparents are finding themselves back in the role of parenting.

    Far from kicking back and living a life of leisure, they are helping with homework, attending parent-teacher conferences and sometimes chasing after toddlers.

  • Absolutely nothing says spring more than the distant chorus of spring peepers.  There is a wooded stream just off Conner Station that is home to a cacophonous band of peepers all competing for as many females as they can.  On a warm March evening, especially after a shower, spring peepers remind me of how glorious rural life can be.  Just by listening a whole other world can be imagined.

  • To understand the title of this article you must first consider the condition in which lepers lived. Every case of leprosy was severe and could rarely be treated. You were considered an outcast and cursed if you had leprosy in Biblical times.
    Even when entering a community or populated area, the leper had to hold a rag over their face and cry, “Unclean, Unclean!” The disease would start out as white spots on the flesh, and would over time consume the body.

  • One of the things I love about the Bible is the fact that it is full of grand illustrations put on by the Grand Illustrator. In the Old Testament especially, God uses illustrations to prove his point to his prophets and his people.

  • Our country has recently inaugurated the 45th president of the United States, Donald J. Trump. There are many who are applauding him as the new president and others who disregard, reject, or even hate President Trump.
    Our nation is divided; Republican, Democrat, liberal, conservative, progressive, fundamentalist, Black Lives Matter, racial tensions, etc. Sadly, the state of the union appears to spiraling down a slippery slope of immorality, hatred of another, intolerance, lack of ethics and integrity, etc.

  • On edge of the wilderness stood the children of Israel, as they were inching closer to the land God had promised them. Moses called upon the leaders from each of the 12 tribes to go beyond where they were and explore the land, which God said they could possess. Shammua represented the tribe of Rueben.
