  • The Bible can be uncomfortable

  • From our readers - Reader thanks good samaritans

    I want to thank several people (whose names I do not remember) for recently coming to my aide.

    On Saturday, July 16, I was on my motorcycle riding east on Hwy 1169 from Normandy towards Rivals. A deer jumped into my path, and after striking it, the motorcycle and I ended up in a ditch on the right side of the roadway. The motorcycle was upside down and I had a broken arm as well as other serious injuries.

  • From our readers - Protecting our planet

    We are now in the middle of one of the hottest string of high temperatures for our section of the country.

    For that reason, we are going to have our non-profit groups sign up for the Roadside Litter Abatement Summer Program the last three days of August and the first two days of September.  Also, the groups will have all of September to clean the roads they draw, in case we also have a September heatwave.    

  • Culture wars are far from over

    An oft-used tactic to demoralize an opponent  is to act like the contest is over and that their side has lost.

    We see it in sports occasionally when one side is up on the scoreboard and begins to taunt or mock the losing team, only to be humiliated when the underdogs rally to set up a fantastic finish.

    In the culture wars, this past week has very much been a rallying point for those who tout more traditional, conservative viewpoints.
