  • May have been the worst ever

    I am not writing about the Super Bowl as the worst ever in fact I thought it was a heck of a game. 
    The wrong team won, not the worst team, but the wrong team. The better team won, no doubt. The Rams, while having the latest genius coach, did not do what got them to the game. 
    I always heard that when you are at a big dance that you should dance with the one that brought you. 
    The running game with a pass mixed in now and then got the Rams to the Super Bowl.

  • Grace Notes

    My church is currently going through the Old Testament book of Jonah.
    Jonah is my guy. He did it all wrong, but he still received God’s grace.
    In the beginning of the book, God tells Jonah to go to Ninevah, a wicked city filled with people Jonah hated, and Jonah says, “Nope. Not gonna do it,” and goes in the opposite direction, hitching a ride on a ship.
    That turns out to not be a good choice for Jonah, because it leads him into a violent storm, gets him thrown overboard by the crew and then swallowed by a fish.

Webber Farms processing plant caught fire about 3 p.m. on that Tuesday. Webber’s employed 94 at the time and about 60 of those were inside the plant when the fire began.
