  • Senate Bill 106 A Threat To Reproductive Freedom

    CAROL TAYLOR, Candidate for state Senate, District 30|Sep 22, 2022

    A recent column written by Judy Ward on her sponsored Senate Bill 106 claims that her proposed Constitutional amendment “does not propose bans on abortions.” I am awed by the amazing spin. If it does nothing, why propose it? If you have no right to something, isn’t that the same thing? It implies that your request is subject to the whim of the person of whom it is made. It is purposely unclear, and will have the same effect with medical providers, etc., refusing to provide services due to its purposeful obscurity. We are already seeing the t...

  • Sheep Will Never Die

    PASTOR LEE SEESE|Sep 22, 2022

    This week I have had several patients surprisingly pass from this earthly life. No one should be too surprised when a hospice patient dies. However, in the case of these ladies I had recently visited them and they were talking and feeling pretty well. Thankfully, both knew the Lord and were ushered into eternal life. The Lord was their shepherd. As we transition from John 10 to John 11 we see Jesus boldly proclaiming who he is and who belongs to him as he concludes his sheep and shepherd illustration. My sheep listen to my voice; I know them,...

  • Thought for the Week

    Paster Earl Herr|Sep 22, 2022

    Isaiah has a special story to tell in his 53rd chapter. It is a conundrum, at once horrible and beautiful. It is a story of man's inhumanity to a man and God's tremendous love for mankind. Isaiah wrote almost 2,800 years ago. Since then, for about two thirds of that time, it was interpreted to mean Israel and all the world would one day receive a Suffering Savior called Messiah. Then about 1,200 A.D., interpretation began to shift and Israel looked at this story, beginning to substitute the...

  • Catharine Does Not Qualify For USDA Grants

    NATALIE GORSUCH, Williamsburg Correspondent|Sep 22, 2022

    To qualify for a USDA grant, the median income of an area has to equal around $50,000. Catharine Township supervisors announced during last Thursday’s meeting that the township is not eligible for a grant because the median income was too high to qualify.

It was then suggested that the township try to obtain a loan for the truck. No further discussion was held. Ganis...

    KATHY MELLOTT, For the Herald|Sep 22, 2022
