    Feb 16, 2023

For 94 years he danced and played hard until his heart finally gave way shortly before his departure.

  • Memories in the Penn Street House

    DYLAN DODSON, For the Herald|Feb 16, 2023

    In a small town in The Cove sits a road known as Penn Street. Like any other street it holds houses, businesses, lots, or any other matter of human structure. However, it also holds a house full of memories. The first day in a new town. The many celebrations. The first days of school. The friends made nearby. It is a house like any other but for the stories the walls could tell. If you listen closely you could still hear the joy, smiles, or celebrations of the 17 years I lived there. It is where my parents showed the ways I could live my life a...

The wife of Dr. Wengert, who had been quite ill for several days, is able to be about again. The fact of the matter is, Mrs. Wengart goes about when others no more ill than she would be in bed.

  • Straight-Line Thinking

    Linda Sollenberger|Feb 16, 2023

    Luke 9:51-62 Although I love art, I never thought I had any art ability. One thing I would jokingly say about my drawing skills was “Well, I can’t even draw a straight line.” As I grow older, I think the ongoing daily struggle of living a Christian life might have some connection to that skill of being able to draw a straight line. It’s funny what you remember from your past. One thing I remember is my seventh grade art class and the teacher. He loved teaching pencil drawings that showed perspec...

  • Thought for the Week

    Feb 16, 2023

    What about bad leaders? Does God ever punish them? The answer is mixed. Sometimes God does intervene in the affairs of men. Frequently that is in answer to prayer. But sometimes it is simply because God needs to bring judgment. God has struck down religious leaders. Some examples of this happen because those religious leaders disobeyed direct commands from God. I said last week, “Leaders must follow a code.” A story in Leviticus 10, tells of Nadab and Abihu, heirs apparent to the High Pri...

  • Now is the Prime Time for Forced Blooming

    Feb 16, 2023

    The brilliant oranges, reds and rusts of our Morrisons Cove autumn and the blinding show of red from the Christmas poinsettias are long gone, leaving flower lovers in shades of gray. The greens and whites of spider plants and deep tones of weeping figs help some, but imagine some organics in bright yellows or soft pink and peach shades of dogwood, honeysuckle or flowering quince gracing the kitchen counter or sofa table. Forced blooming goes back a century or so, about the time normal gardening came into vogue. While busy lifestyles have...
