  • Roberta, my wife, and I were eating at a Cracker Barrel and we had a very sweet little waitress. I asked her if she was a Christian. Her answer was, “I’m somewhat a Christian.” I thought that was an honest answer.
    When you ask some people if they are a Christian they will start telling you where they go to church or all the good things they do. I’ll have to admit that is good, but a church does not save and doing good things does not save you, only the blood of Jesus Christ saves you, and you become a Christian through his blood.

    Can you write a column on volunteer vacations? My husband and I are both in our ‘60s and are interested in taking a service-oriented “altruistic” vacation this summer but could use some help.

  • I stumbled upon my young daughter’s new favorite dish by accident last week. The story illustrates what makes cooking so much fun for me, and how adapting even a new recipe can have great results.

  • This week’s “America, I love this place” exclamation is devoted to Jeremy Evans.
    Who?
    Three summers since Evans left Western Kentucky University as a 22-year-old with 190-something pounds stretched over 6-feet-9-inches. NBA Draft? Get serious.
    Media buzz for the 2010 Draft was ga-ga for John Wall at number one and Kentucky one-and-doners. Long after David Stern’s bed-time and just before they turned out television’s stage lights at Madison Square Garden, the Utah Jazz chose, with its 55th pick, Jeremy Evans.

  • Kelly LeeAnn Mobley of Taylorsville received her GED on June 29.

  • Larry Ray Hardin, who recently retired from the Department of Justice, has been hired as an adjunct professor at the University of Phoenix, National University of Phoenix and National University to teach criminal justice.

  • Taylorsville student Megan Stout was named to the provost’s list at Lipscomb University for the 2012 spring semester.
    This honor means that Stout, an Academy of Our Lady of Mercy graduate and biology major, made perfect grades for the semester.
