  • Fireflies can help control garden pests

    By Jessica Sayre, County extension agent for Horticulture
    Fireflies evoke memories of a childhood chase. You’d catch one in your hand and wait to see the flickering light and then moments later, release it unharmed and watch it fly away.

  • Clean hands and pure hearts

    As a Christian, I have a longing desire to grow in my knowledge of God. I never want to come to a point in my life when I can look back on times past and say that I was closer to Him then than I am now.
    I have sadly witnessed so many individuals in my life that seemed to have had a more intimate relationship with Christ years ago than they do at present.
    In my quest to have a deeper relationship with God, I find that few requirements are more important than purity of heart.

  • Grace Notes

    Last week, the Rev. Doug Shepherd died.
    I met him in 2002 at his auto parts business.
    His dad was in the auto business too, and they were both Pentecostal preachers.
    I had been writing a story for the paper about the 100th anniversary of Pentecostalism, and although I had lots of history and background information, I wanted to talk to a real-live Pentecostal.
    At the time, “Brother Shepherd” preached on Sundays, but during the week he fixed cars.
