  • Why the Library Is an Important Place

    Sep 26, 2019

    As librarians, we know the value of our community services, and our patrons appreciate their importance as well. But in an increasingly digital world, we see the role of libraries as community and cultural centers at times undervalued, and occasionally under fire. When shrinking budgets combine with the nonstop technological revolution, public library services that focus on building community face-to-face, inspiring and educating patrons about art, literature, and music, and helping patrons engage can seem quaint. But it is precisely those...

  • The Mueller Report, Part II

    Wayne Bush|Sep 26, 2019

    It feels so "yesterday" to be writing about the Mueller Report. Seriously, when is the last time you've heard a Democrat, or any of their sock puppets in the news media, mention Mueller? These people could not stop talking about him and his report and then his expected "bombshell" testimony before Congress turned out to be a dud; another embarrassment for Democrats. Let's start with some perspective on Mueller's investigative team. The team consisted of 17 hand-picked career prosecutors, not...

    Linda Williams|Sep 26, 2019

    Facebook is one of the biggest time-wasters ever invented. I have spent hours on this Mark Zuckerberg creation with groups like "Streetcat Bob," "I Just Love to Decorate," "Show Me Your Plants," and all sorts of groups with political views.

    Roseann Zimmerman, Correspondent|Sep 26, 2019

    The waning moon seemed to look down on me where I lay in the back of the moving vehicle. The baggage beside me didn't seem to mind the bumps in the road, but to me the bumps were brain-rattling and bone-jarring. The suitcases didn't budge, even if I pushed them for just one more inch of their rightful place. Leaving my seat for a different position wasn't such a good idea after all. Shifting to sit up and relieve another numb spot, I watched an 18-wheeler roll beside us. The speeding 40 tons...

He was driving since he has his permit and that's about all he wants to do. We were about 15 minutes into the trip and were talking when suddenly the car vibrated. I assumed he hit a rumble strip. He learned that from his Mother (or maybe from me). But when I looked closely at the road I saw that there were no rumble strips. It stopped...

  • Thought for the Week

    Pastor Earl Herr, Correspondent|Sep 26, 2019

Perhaps this is not fair since we live in a totally different world. Sports of today are different. Business of today is different. We no longer have slavery of the kind the New Testament age had. The world is radically different. Many...
