  • Pizza Man Burnt

    Papa John’s has never been my favorite pizza. But I did like the story of how a young man chased the American dream and found success.
    Most are familiar with the story of how John Schnatter started his pizza business in a back room of his father’s tavern in southern Indiana. His father’s business was struggling, and John sold his 1971 Camero to help out and to purchase a $1,600 pizza oven. With investment, risk and hard work, Schnatter found success. He built Papa John’s into one of the biggest pizza chains in the world.

A risky rescue operation began over the weekend, and as we go to press on Tuesday morning, we’re hearing the wonderful news that all the boys have now been brought out safely. As we celebrate, we contintue to pray for the rescue team that still must emerge, and remember the one Thai Navy Seal who lost his life last week in the rescue effort.

  • Weeding out fake news

    People who enjoy a good, productive garden, must invest a considerable amount of time and energy weeding out the bad and keeping the good. Left unattended, weeds can quickly overtake a garden in little time, not only hiding the good stuff, but choking it off and robbing it of nourishment as well.
    To the careless or inexperienced gardener, it may be hard to tell the difference between weeds and crops. They’re all green, they grow in the dirt and it takes training and effort to discern the two.
