Opinion: Don’t outsource your faith

By Judy Brandon Religion columnist Made in the USA … That is a phrase that seems to be seen less and less on tools, toys, cameras, cell phones and televisions that we buy. Last week I bought an inexpensive plastic measuring spoon set. On the back of the tablespoon measure: Made in China. I was […]

Opinion: Get there while the doors are still open

By Curtis Shelburne Religion columnist Another church in our little community closed its doors recently. Worshiped on a Sunday pretty much as usual and then, at least temporarily, shut down. That church opened its doors, I’m told, in 1933 in the midst of the Great Depression. She weathered tough times; it was prosperous times that […]

Stand strong, Apple

My opinion is that the FBI should get Apple’s help in unlocking the San Bernardino terrorist’s cell phone when they pry the code from Steve Jobs’ cold, dead hands. But then I guess that’s already the condition of the late Apple founder’s hands. As a reformed journalist of sorts it amazes me just how casual […]

Terry: Presidents’ Day still relatively new holiday

Anybody remember a time before there was a Presidents’ Day? I do. Growing up in the 1960s, on each side of the blackboard (it really was a black board and the teacher wrote on it with chalk) was a portrait of George Washington on one side and Abraham Lincoln on the other. I said the […]

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always […]
