  • The Singing Room

    Grace Hamilton|Nov 4, 2021

    We had a room off our living room that we called the music room. In that special room was a pump organ which mother had played in the Smithfield Church of the Brethren when she was young. I often wondered who purchased that organ when mom and dad had a sale before they moved to Harrisburg. I was in Arizona at my Brethren Volunteer Service project. Mother played the most beautiful pieces on the organ and our piano. Dad loved to sing while she played. It was to be that in their later years when...

  • Something Missing?

    PASTOR LEE SEESE|Nov 4, 2021

    Sometimes in life we find that we are lacking the very thing we need at any given time.

I did have to limit myself, however. Today, I wanted to glue an old pair of my son’s tennis shoes that he wears for work. I found a bottle and tube of adhesive. They were both hard as a brick. I was lacking what I...

  • How Switching The Clocks Can Affect Your Health

    Nov 4, 2021

    In the fall, clocks are fixed on standard time, while in the spring they're moved forward one hour to daylight saving time, or DST. The rationale behind DST has long been based on energy savings, as the demand for electricity to light homes is related to the times when people go to bed at night and rise in the morning. Studies conducted by the U.S. Department of Transportation in 1975 determined that moving clocks ahead one hour could save a small amount of energy each day. Research suggests...

Subsequently, the practice of wearing blaze orange began in Massachusetts in 1961. Now forty-three out of fifty states in the U.S. require hunters to wear b...

    Nov 4, 2021

    Last fall's turkey hunt did not begin well for me. The evening prior to the season, when scouting with my son, Bob, I took a terrible fall on the wet leaves.

"You'd better hunt by yourself tomorrow," I said. However, at dawn I managed to limp a short distance into the woods and heard a couple of birds yelping. I also heard...
