  • SAVVY SENIOR: Home improvement assistance programs for seniors

    Dear Savvy Senior,

    Do you know of any financial assistance programs or other resources that can help seniors with home improvement projects? I would like to help my 86-year-old father make a few modifications to his house so he can live there as long as possible, but money is very tight.

  • The trails we are leaving behind

    Today as I was walking the dog, I noticed these tiny, glittering tracks on the sidewalk. I guess the rain last night coaxed the worms out to cross the sidewalks and they left these glistening trails. Who would have thought that worms would leave such beautiful signs?

  • Rendering unto God

    In Mark chapter 12, starting in verse 13, we read how once again the Pharisees and others are trying to trap Jesus with words. You think they would’ve learned by now. But they asked Jesus a very hot political question of the time. “Is it lawful to pay taxes to Caesar?” The reason for this question is simple. The Jewish people hated this tax. It symbolized everything Rome stood for. In essence, they were paying taxes on a land God had given to them for free. On the other hand, since it was occupied by Rome, they had to pay taxes.

  • Standing out in the rain

    I don’t know Adam Butler from, well, Adam. But I’m familiar with the kind of guy he is. I met him for the first time Saturday as he stood out in the rain with young kids as they aimed their. 22 rifles at a target several yards away and fired during the 4-H Shooting Sports event at the Spencer County Fish and Game Club.
