Jim Gregory (R-Blair) on May 30 called for additional oversight of the commission. “Criticism of lack of transparency of accounts is absolutely warranted. To not even know what accounts exist, let alone not know how much is in each account, is a recipe for disaster. Open opportunity for theft and malfeasance of funds must be ended,” Gregory said. “Checks sitting for weeks before being deposited is clearly a sign that...

  • The Sportsman's Corner

    RICHARD TATE, Correspondent|Jun 6, 2019

    I am sometimes asked how to dry the gristle attached to the beard of a gobbler that a hunter probably wants to save as a memento of a successful hunt. At one time I dipped the gristle of the beard into a small pile of salt to dry it. This was messy. I now pour a small pile of baby powder onto a small piece of paper and dip the gristle into this pile. I then prop the beard's gristle against the pile of baby powder for several days, perhaps dipping the gristle into the pile again. It takes only a...

  • Old Order Mennonite Memoirs

    Roseann Zimmerman, Correspondent|Jun 6, 2019

    It was a new thing for me to wear ear plugs. I looked in astonishment at my lawn mower. The 6 horsepower Kawasaki engine under the green paint seemed to turn into a purring kitten. The traffic on Piney Creek Road was soundless. The black exhaust coming from the muffler of my husband's tractor indicated noisy power for grinding corn but I wasn't hearing it. Instead of these jarring sounds I heard the breezes and my own voice practicing my memory work, singing my songs. My hours of lawn mowing...

    PASTOR LEE SEESE, Correspondent|Jun 6, 2019

    If I were to ask the average Christian why they pray, I may get answers like...prayer changes things and the Bible tells us we should. People can probably quote a number of prayer-related verses. Folks could tell of times they saw God work in their lives through prayer. Most believers also relate prayer to guilt because we never feel like we pray enough. Today I want to consider why we should pray. I am not an expert on prayer, nor am I satisfied with my prayer life. It is such a big topic that...

    Jun 6, 2019

    Did you know that humans are the only adult animal species that continues to consume “milk” through dairy products.

And the benefits can be numerous. Although dairy doubters are quick to mention that it is not “natural” for humans to consume milk products into adulthood and that the body is not designed to digest the sugars and proteins in dairy, others are saying th...
