  • Researchers to deploy wall of sound to battle invasive fish

    Researchers will experiment with a riverbed bubbler and sound system as part of the ongoing effort to slow the spread of Asian carp throughout the Mississippi River basin.
    European technology originally designed to steer migrating salmon back into main river channels will be tested below Barkley Dam in western Kentucky as an environmentally friendly way to block passage of Asian carp upstream.

  • Will you believe the message of the Cross?

    By Steve Perry,
    Calvary Assembly of God

    (1 Corinthians 1:18 (NKJV)
    18 For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.
    This time of year people of the Christian faith celebrate the death and resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. His death came as he was hung on a torturous cross and then placed in a borrowed tomb for burial.  

  • Grace Notes

    Editor’s note: This column from 2009 is being rerun in honor of Nancy Kennedy’s husband, Barry, who turned 65 this week.
    When I first met my husband he drove a totally hot car, a brand-new 1973 Mercury Comet GT, white with burnt orange pinstripes and burnt orange interior -- and a manual transmission.
    Because we were young and newly in love and Barry had miles of patience, he attempted to teach me to drive it. It helped that we lived in Northern Maine where there wasn’t much to crash into except snow banks and caribou.
