  • Parking on sidewalks is prohibited, says police chief

    As I come to work everyday and as I patrol around town, I see several vehicles parked up on the sidewalk in front of their homes.

  • A life with security often means a life without God

    A few weeks ago I heard a sermon about wisdom.

    I wisely took notes, then lost them and forgot much of what the pastor said.

    But I do remember one thing. He said God came to King Solomon in a dream and said he could ask for anything and he’d give it to him...

    Solomon acknowledged God’s great kindness to his father, King David, and now to him as king of Israel.
