    Herald of May 11, 1944 One of the worst storms in years passed over Morrisons Cove Wednesday afternoon between 4 and 6 o’clock, leaving a trail of damage hard to estimate.

The tremendous downpour of rain, and hail that was heaped up like snowdrifts, was what washed the f...

  • Other Voices – What Would Make Congress Better?

    Lee H. Hamilton|May 9, 2019

    A couple of weeks ago I was speaking to a group of students and decided to start with a point-blank question: Is Congress doing a good job? There were perhaps 100 people in the room, and not a single one raised his or her hand. So I asked the question a different way: Is Congress nearly or completely dysfunctional? Most hands went up. These were not experts, of course. But they weren’t wrong, either. Things aren’t working well on Capitol Hill. I can tick off the problems, and so can you. Congress doesn’t follow good process. It’s too polarized...

    Like this year's spring weather, last spring's was generally not proper for effective fly-fishing for trout.

    May 9, 2019

    Having been forbidden from the attraction of the fish pool in their front yard, my grandson Logan, age 6, folded his arms over the top of the small woven fence around it and began to imitate a toad's springtime song.

Being a toad, he was allowed to be in the cool water where my grandchildren also wished to be. Unaccustomed to 80-degree weather,...

Obviously as most people enter the second half of life there is a natural decline in various ways. However, that does not mean that younger is better. To...

    Barnabas and Paul have now parted company. Barnabas goes to the sea and journeys to Cyprus, his home country. We hear no more of him in the Book of Acts, but that is not necessarily negative. We only catch small glimpses of a few disciples. The great majority of them are unheard of. Perhaps that will be some of what we do in Heaven, hear the stories of the saints we hear nothing about here. Paul goes overland, reversing the journey that brought him back to Antioch. His first recorded stops are...
