  • WWJD? He wouldn't make followers be perfect

    A few weeks ago, a woman called me with an idea for my column.
    She had just read “In His Steps,” a book written in 1896 that sparked the “WWJD” (What Would Jesus Do?) phenomena in the 1990s, the WWJD bracelets, bumper stickers, refrigerator magnets, et al.
    The book, written by Charles Sheldon, is a fictional story about a pastor who challenges his congregation not to do anything for an entire year without first asking, “What would Jesus do?” and then do that.

  • Aggravation worth it for road improvements

    A lot can happen in a week.
    Due to a death in my family, I was out of town last week.
    I completely missed the construction work on the Ladish  Road bridge.
    I have avoided that route for awhile now because of the poor condition of the bridge’s surface.
    No more!
    In fact, to get to U.S. 27 South, that’s one of the alternate routes available.
    When I heard that the John Hunt Morgan bridge and the Ladish bridge were slated for repairs, my first thought was that they would be closed at the same time.


    Let’s take a little break from talking about the judicial process and discuss an issue that is negatively impacting our entire community.  There is an epidemic that is attempting to destroy our country, threaten our safety, and take our children from us.  It does not discriminate based upon age, race, or social class.  This menace is drugs, whether it is marijuana, pills, cocaine, methamphetamine, or heroin.
