  • Support needed in battle with cancer

    It’s an ominous sight. The flickering glow from the candle-lit bags illuminate the night. On this night they are a visual reminder of those who either lost their battle with cancer or still doing battle.

  • Liberals ignore God’s law

    When God had enough contempt and defiance from man, he startled the thousands of workers building the tower of Babel by confusing their speech.
    All those workers went from speaking one language to many different ones. Not able to communicate with one another, the tower fell into decay and was never finished.  
    Today, there are more than 6,000 languages spoken throughout the world.  
    JAARS Bible translators at Waxhaw  have done a magnificent job of translating many languages of the world into English.

  • I’m planting some tomatoes this week

    I bought a couple of tomato plants this week. Given the times, it seems to be the thing to do. I guess these Celebrity Tomato plants are my way to remember the late Bobby Catoe, who died April 26.
    I was acquainted with Catoe, but got to know him while covering the city and county government beats for The Lancaster News in the late 1990s.
    At the time, Catoe was serving on Lancaster County Council.
    I always called him “Mr. Catoe” out of respect, although he asked me not to do that.
