  • Newcomers to the Cove: January

    JOSEPH WALK, For the Herald|Jan 26, 2023

    In 1872, the English poet Christina Rossetti published a famous poem which begins: “In the bleak mid-winter Frosty wind made moan Earth stood hard as iron, Water like a stone; Snow had fallen, snow on snow, Snow on snow, In the bleak mid-winter Long ago.” Gustav Holst later set her poem to music and most folks would still recognize his lyrical tune today. His song came to mind recently as I pondered what January is like in the Cove. I think Rossetti’s poem sums up January pretty well. January is not only the coldest but also the windiest...

However, the 1964 WHS team won the District 6 Championship, returning the Blue Pirates to the championship level. The team advanced to the Western Regional final where a fine...

  • Wonderful Words

    PASTOR LEE SEESE|Jan 26, 2023

    As someone who has done his fair share of writing over the years, I recognize that words have meanings. The other night my wife and I were talking, and I said something strange because I was thinking from an unusual perspective. I pointed out to her that I sometimes think in terms of roots of words. She was speechless. Some words are naturally negative. Storm. Cancer. Taxes. Trouble. Obey. Death. Snake. Ravens. Naturally not all words that may have negative connotations to one person will be that way to another. Some of it may depend on our...

  • Thought for the Week

    Pastor Earl Herr|Jan 26, 2023

    We love and please God by obeying Him. Of course that is not only what God wants, it is good for us as well. I acknowledge it is hard because of our “fallen nature.” But think how wonderful our world would be if we all obeyed God’s commandments. In a recent message, our bishop said, “If we all obeyed God’s commands to live a chaste life, we would see the end of all Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs).” Think about it. God says, “Do not commit adultery” and “Avoid...

  • The Heat is on: Warming Water Threatens Aquatic Life in Chesapeake Bay Region

    KARL BLAKENSHIP, Bay Journal News Service|Jan 26, 2023

    Warming water is threatening to undo decades of efforts aimed at improving aquatic habitat in the Chesapeake region, from headwater streams to the open water of the Bay itself. The increasing water temperatures, which threaten species like brook trout and striped bass, are already offsetting some of the habitat benefits of the multibillion-dollar Bay restoration effort, a new report warns. Worse, some actions taken to reduce pollution are actually contributing to warmer, more stressful, stream...
