Elections and martial arts
I hope you went out and voted Tuesday. I did — at 7:15 a.m.! Generally, I vote on the way to work and am normally among the first five or so to vote in the Laws Hill precinct.
What can you say? The ‘preacher’ is getting older
Yes, let us admit it, the “Preacher” is getting old! The signs are all there. Looking at some photos made at the wedding of Cathryn Miller and Bradley Douglas in our church last weekend, I noticed gray hair on my clerical head that is not there in my collection of photos from weddings I performed in my earlier years!

Letter to the Editor
Thanks to good Samaritan:
I would like to thank the lady who found my purse in the Wal-Mart parking lot. Everything was still in it and I appreciated that so much.
It makes me so happy to know there are still honest, caring people in this community when we read about so much crime.
Thank you again,
