Teeing Off: An end to the season

I’m now ready for a vacation to recoup from vacation. The dogs — Gizmo and Pepper Jack — certainly knew I was gone. They missed their extended walks during the 10 days I was out-of-town finishing up the American Legion baseball season. This...

How we respond or deal with people and circumstances reflects the fruits of the Spirit in us. There is...

Humayun Khan, to the war in Iraq in 2004. And now they’ve set the Trump aflame with some goading and baiting.
