  • Embrace the Changes to this Year's J4 Celebration

    RICK BOSTON|Jun 27, 2019

    Social media has given people the power to voice their opinions on any subject they choose. Politics, restaurants, the car spotted making a turn without using its signal – nothing and nobody is immune to finding their way onto somebody’s Facebook page when the mood strikes to publicly call them out. While we all have a right to voice an opinion, the growing trend is to attack before the facts, complaining about things that have no effect on our personal lives, or worse yet, complaining about something that hasn’t even happened yet. The latest v...

  • The Sportsman's Corner

    RICHARD TATE, Correspondent|Jun 27, 2019

    With heavy rains blowing out my favorite local streams for much of the spring, I've gotten little fly-fishing in. For a while, though, several spots on the BFO River remained fishable. One drizzly afternoon before the BFO was blown out, too, I'd hiked to the top of a pool where I'd been having some success. I'd just sat down on a log to wait for some flies to hatch when I heard voices: two guys in separate one-man pontoon boats were anchored at the head of the pool. I heard the first one say,...

  • Old Order Mennonite Memoirs

    Roseann Zimmerman, Correspondent|Jun 27, 2019

    Being shackled with velvet chains to my garden doesn't hurt. In fact, usually I never think about being bound. But last week I remembered. Instead of chains, however, which would never budge, I thought of them as rubber bands. They stretched and let me go when I moved away from my gardens, but since they were still around my ankles and even my heart, I bounced back again, hopelessly and willingly fettered. On Monday I picked shell peas and got soaked by the dripping plants. I picked sugar peas and strawberries and cut heads of cauliflower and...

  • Not Your Typical Church Lady

    Kelly Baker, Correspondent|Jun 27, 2019

    "Lefty-loosie, righty-tightey." "A pint a pound the world around." These are little concise sayings we commit to memory to help us remember things. They illustrate a truth.

They cover a wide scope of situations. There are 31 chapters in the book of Proverbs, which means that you can read one for each day of the month. O...

    Pastor Earl Herr, Correspondent|Jun 27, 2019

    In Acts Chapter 2, on the Day of Pentecost, Peter preached to a crowd of people. Many of them came under conviction, repented of their sinful lives and turned to God, through Jesus Christ for forgiveness. On that day some 3,000 people were saved and added to or actually began the Church. We have been looking at Acts Chapter 17 this week and last and we find Paul preaching. One named man, one named woman, and a few others came under conviction, repented of their sinful lives and turned to God,...

    My grandmother on my father's side was Viola Amanda Amick. Viola and Amanda are each beautiful names but they called my grandmother "Ole," pronounced "O Lee." I never could quite understand why they turned pretty names into something so harsh sounding. I just called her "Grandma". As a child, my parents often told me I took after her. It's probably true. With a German name like Amick, I think Grandma was pretty stubborn. Me? Well, let's just leave it at that. I have her pug nose, round face, and...
