  • ‘Well done, good and faithful servant’

    The problem with ministers, Bible teachers and religion writers is that we’re human.

    The problem with being human – one of the many problems – is the we read and interpret passages of scripture through different prisms, depending on our experiences, past teachings, even our sinful bents. Sometimes we make the Bible say what we want it to say.

    It fascinates me how two people can read the same passage and come away with sometimes opposite interpretations.

  • ‘Connersville Cat’ mystery is exciting, says Harrison resident

    To the editor:

    I have to admit, this whole mysterious Connersville cat thing is kind of exciting to me. Although the cat hasn’t eaten any humans yet, it reminds me of Jim Corbett and the man-eating leopard in India. Mr. Corbett, being a well-seasoned English Tiger hunter, was asked by the Indian government (India was under the English crown then) to hunt down and kill a man-eating leopard. If I’m not mistaken, it took eight years to get the cat! In spite of hunting it daily, the cat killed villagers at will the entire time.

  • Bumper crop of peppers and squash not a sure thing

    You know all the jokes about people having bumper crops of summer squash?

    Squash shows up in people’s cars or in public spaces because there is so much that the gardener can’t even give it away. Well, some years are better than others and this year, I don’t seem to have an over abundance.

    This year, the squash vine borer and blossom end rot dominate; last year it was squash bugs and mildew.
