Reflections on All Saints' Day And Election Day

 

"For I am about to create new heavens and a new earth; the former things shall not be remembered or come to mind. {18} But be glad and rejoice forever in what I am creating; for I am about to create Jerusalem as a joy, and its people as a delight. {19} I will rejoice in Jerusalem, and delight in my people; no more shall the sound of weeping be heard in it, or the cry of distress. {20} No more shall there be in it an infant that lives but a few...

Living in the Middle East gives me time to reflect on the history of our Western civilization from a point of view looking back to the very beginning of things. For example, during a recent trip across Turkey our family stopped by the ruins of the ancient city of Pergamum touring one of the first full-service "health" centers. Of course, the medical care they offered came with a hearty dose of pagan Greek rituals, like walking through the tunnel of the Spring of Life hoping to have a dream...

Letter to the Editor,

I know of a very decent, honest, hard working young man (he is also an Eagle Scout) who was married with three children and living in Ossian, Indiana.

To the Editor:

On September 30th, I witnessed a fabulous sight. Something I thought was gone with the changing of time. You know, all the hussle and bustle, not having enough time to enjoy one another as a family. But there it was, that sunny Saturday, families in the park for a picnic, mothers, fathers, kids, and grandparents - families together. I'm speaking of the 1st Annual Waynedale Picnic.

It brought back such fond memories of when my daughter was little. Sundays were our quality...

I wanted the citizens of Waynedale to know that kindness is still a way of life for many. As someone who has shopped and been through Waynedale, and only recently moved to this area, I was very impressed by the assistance I received one recent Saturday. I awoke to 2 flat tires on my vehicle parked in my driveway.

I recalled that a business by the name of Favory's was fairly close to my new home. I took a chance and dialed their number. After explaining my problem, I was told someone would...
