  • A word of encouragement

    Marion Hadsel, Pastor, Hopeton Church|Mar 11, 2022

    If you pay any attention to the news at all, you are fully aware that there are people who are fleeing for their lives from a sociopathic, narcissistic communist dictator and former KGB chieftain who wants to supposedly restore "Mother Russia." His name, Vladimir Putin. He has invaded the country of Ukraine. The Ukrainians are fighting back against this dictatorial super power!

  • Let's study the Bible

    Kim Barker, College Hill Church of Christ|Mar 11, 2022

    Ecclesiastes 3:1 says “To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under heaven.” God had a plan from before creation. He chose His people to bring Christ into the world. He chose the time Christ would be born. He was promised for centuries. Many prophets spoke of Him. Think about the world at the time He was born. Why was this the time for “God’s purpose under heaven?” The Roman Empire controlled much of the world at that time which made it a good time for Christ to live and die and establish His church. Never before in histor...

  • Daylight saving time begins Sunday

    Marione Martin|Mar 11, 2022

    Daylight saving time begins Sunday, March 13. Don't forget to set your clocks forward one hour before you go to bed Saturday night. Of course, cellphones and most computers automatically update. The time changes twice each year can make you feel tired and have other effects. Losing an hour may not seem like a big deal, but it "really can have a significant impact on our overall health and well-being," says Melissa Lipford, M.D., a neurologist and sleep specialist at the Mayo Clinic. The average...

  • Decisions, decisions

    Arden Chaffee|Mar 11, 2022

    “The mind is an amazing thing, it starts to work first thing in the morning and doesn’t stop working until the teacher calls on you in class.” My friends and I joke about “senior moments” but I suspect it is not just an aging thing, having endured them my whole life. I envy people who say they can process quickly under stress and not make regretful decisions. Can they, or are they just not admitting their mistakes? Experts agree that most sales are emotional. Kirk Washburn said, “Quick de...

  • Random Thoughts

    Roger Hardaway|Mar 11, 2022

    As we saw last week, the United States created its first national park – Yellowstone – in 1872. In the 1890s the government established three more national parks to assist the country’s growing tourism industry. All of the first four national parks were located in the American West, as much of that region had beautiful topography that many people believed was not conducive to any economic pursuits other than tourism. The rise in western tourism coincided with a flurry of railroad building large...

  • Oklahoma Senate approves half-dozen anti-abortion measures

    Mar 11, 2022

    OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — The Republican-controlled Oklahoma Senate has approved a half-dozen anti-abortion measures, including a Texas-style abortion ban that allows private lawsuits against those who perform abortions. The full Senate approved each of the bills on Thursday and sent them to the House, where they're likely to pass. Oklahoma's Republican Gov.

  • GOP Kansas Senate map creates 2 districts with 2 incumbents

    Mar 11, 2022

    TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Republicans are moving to redraw the boundaries of Kansas Senate districts so that a GOP and Democratic senator would face running against each other and the Redistricting Committee's chair would be drawn into a GOP colleague's district. Republicans and Democrats have rival plans, though the GOP plan is more likely to pass, given Republicans' Senate supermajority. The League of Women Voters also has a plan, and all three were posted online by Friday morning. The Kansas Constitution requires lawmakers to redraw their d...

  • NH lawmakers firmly reject seceding from United States

    HOLLY RAMER|Mar 11, 2022

    CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — The New Hampshire House overwhelmingly rejected a proposal Thursday that called for the state to secede from the United States, although 13 lawmakers supported it. Under the secession proposal, voters would have been asked to amend the state constitution to add that New Hampshire "peaceably declares independence from the United States and immediately proceeds as a sovereign nation. All other references to the United States in this constitution, state statutes and regulations are nullified." Changing the New Hampshire c...

  • Texas clinics' lawsuit over abortion ban 'effectively over'

    PAUL J. WEBER and JAMIE STENGLE|Mar 11, 2022

    AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — The Texas Supreme Court on Friday dealt essentially a final blow to abortion clinics' best hopes of stopping a restrictive law that has sharply curtailed the number of abortions in the state since September and will now fully stay in place for the foreseeable future. The ruling by the all-Republican court was not unexpected, but it slammed the door on what little path forward the U.S. Supreme Court had allowed Texas clinics after having twice declined to stop a ban on abortions after roughly six weeks of pregnancy. It spell...

  • No indictment for Texans QB Watson over sex assault claims

    JUAN A. LOZANO|Mar 11, 2022

    HOUSTON (AP) — A grand jury on Friday declined to indict Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson following a police investigation sparked by lawsuits filed by 22 women who have accused him of sexual assault and harassment.

  • Russia's bioweapon conspiracy theory finds support in US

    DAVID KLEPPER and ANGELO FICHERA|Mar 11, 2022

    Russia's baseless claims about secret American biological warfare labs in Ukraine are taking root in the U.S. too, uniting COVID-19 conspiracy theorists, QAnon adherents and some supporters of ex-President Donald Trump. Despite rebuttals from independent scientists, Ukrainian leaders and officials at the White House and Pentagon, the online popularity of the claims suggests some Americans are willing to trust Kremlin propaganda over the U.S. media and government. Like any effective conspiracy theory, the Russian claim relies on some truths:...

    SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — The U.S. Treasury Department announced new sanctions Friday after North Korea had tested parts of its biggest intercontinental ballistic missile in two recent launches, a sign it is likely to fire that weapon soon to put a spy satellite into orbit in what would be its most significant provocation in years.

The companies a...
