  • GLOW IN THE DARK AT THE PARK
  • A WORD FROM OUR READERS...

    I’d like to say first this is the most important election in recent times. 
    It is disgusting when only 30 percent voted last year and look who we ended up with as governor.  There is going to be a lot of out-of-state money coming in to influence the outcome of this election.  The working and middle class are going to be most affected by this election so get out and vote.
    I’m supporting Mayor Jim Gray for U.S. Senate because he is a proven leader. 

  • Bumper sticker theology

    On most days as I’m on my way to work I see a car with a bunch of bumper stickers on the back.
    There’s a “26.2” and a “13.1” sticker that means the driver is probably a marathon/half-marathon runner.
    Other stickers say things like “Easy does it,” “One day at a time” and “Let go and let God.”
    I’ve seen those slogans before and they’re often associated with 12-step programs like AA, although they don’t belong to them exclusively.
