  • FAITH FOR TODAY: Dealing with discouragement

    Young children usually think their parents can do anything.  I guess that’s natural, but it can lead to some real disappointments.  You promise your kids a day at the park on Saturday, and you wake up to buckets of rain. So instead of a fun day at the park, you have disappointed and discouraged kids blaming you for the weather!

    As we grow up, we learn that our plans don’t always come to pass.  We learn that things don’t always go our way.  And yet we still can get just as discouraged and sulky as children on a rainy day.

  • SCHS presents 'Hey, Fella', an original musical comedy

  • Options few as Nation Bros. close business

    Nation Bros., which has had the grim job of removing dead livestock from the county’s farms for 24 years, is out of business, owner Gabe Nation said.

    His family business is a casualty of an FDA regulation, set to go into effect this month, which requires the removal of brain and spinal cord tissues from cattle more than 30 months of age before they are rendered into pet or livestock feed. Nation said the rule would double his cost of doing business, and many of the 22 counties his company served could not meet the increase.

  • What would we do without Easter?

    Last week had me thinking about a lot of different things: life, death, sorrow, regret and how life is so unfair. I hope you have heard the saying “bad things happen to good people” because it’s true and God knows it! Take, for instance, my friend Brooke. she was only 28 years old and she had already dealt with several life-threatening surgeries in her short life, situations no one her age should have to deal with. Yet through it all she was a phenomenal spiritual leader and a dedicated ordained minister.
