Pastor’s Corner: Kids these days
October 9, 2012

Pastor’s Corner: Ready for a change
October 9, 2012

We are all affected by the poor economy and the political unrest, but I don’t think the answer to our real problems will be found in politics or politicians.

Aunt Norie’s Sewing Room
October 9, 2012
You’d be surprised just how many of us “old timers” are still around. Guess what? We grew up eating all the bacon, eggs, steaks and sausages they think are so very bad for us. Just ask our opinion, if you will. We feel that it’s perhaps not the food but the stuff they add to it before we even get it.
