THE 1942 ST. LOUIS CARDINALS

Before the World Series this year some people were telling us that maybe the 2004 Cardinal team was the best Cardinal team ever. I guess these people telling us this, were baseball experts, as why else would we be listening to them? I thought I'd refresh my memory so I picked up my copy of the Baseball Encyclopedia to look up some information about this 1942 Cardinal team.
Some of the players were: Walker Cooper, Mort Cooper, Jimmy Brown, Enos "Country" Slaughter...

Dear Editor,

 

Indiana lost a dedicated and long time public servant and I lost a mentor and good friend when Senator Potch Wheeler died on Monday. Potch served locally as a trustee, a county commissioner, a school board member and a hospital board member. He served Senate District 17 for 19 years in the Indiana Senate. He was highly regarded at the state level and for 14 years he was elected Caucus Chairman by his peers in the Senate.

THE VETERAN. How do we give them the honor and respect that they have earned, and is a right due them when our heavenly Father calls them home to stand the eternal watch? Each and every Veteran, whether they belong to a veterans organization or not, is due a military service (if they or their family so desire).
But whom do they ask? The funeral director is a good place to start. Or call an AMERICAN LEGION, VFW, or AMVETS Post. One of the Post Officers will be more than willing to give...

Reflections on Worry, Prayer, and Faith

 

For many of us as fall approaches, whether we are in businesses or in churches, we are gearing up for ministries in the coming year or business endeavors. Quite often this time of year becomes frantic. One sign of this franticness is that we often have "too much on our plate," to use a phrase that is pretty common, now.

Symptoms that accompany this franticness include: shallow breathing, a sense of being constantly on the run, with little time to...
