Collectively, our hearts are broken over the loss of a fine young police officer who died serving and protecting our city.
  • In Katowice, Poland, all the signers of the 2015 Paris climate accord are gathered to assess how the world’s nations are meeting their goals to cut carbon emissions. 
  • This is a relatively new phenomenon. In the 1950s, just five percent of the workforce needed a license to legally work. At the time, occupational licensing was largely limited to medical professionals, lawyers, and teachers. However, as we often see when government is involved, license requirements have expanded dramatically.
  • Rare first edition among the Izaak Walton’s of Maryland, this marlin- the first caught during the 1938 season- was presented to President Roosevelt. It was caught by Todd Shuster of Wilmington, Delaware. The people present are; Talbot E. Bunting, John B. Lynch, Preston Laws, James Jarman, Captain Crawford Savage, and members of Ocean City, Maryland, game fisherman’s association. 
  • And Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life. He who comes to Me shall never hunger, and he who believes in Me shall never thirst.
  • GETTING THE MESSAGE/Exodus 19:7-25
    This is an important passage in our understanding of the law of God. By the “law” of God, here I mean the 10 commandments, which are a summary of the moral law of God. God will give Israel the law in the context of what we read here in chapter 19. The vivid images in this passage are intended to make an indelible impression upon us.
  • EDITORIAL/Nooses at the Capitol
    Leading up to yesterday’s U.S. Senate runoff election, race was injected prominently, especially after two nooses were found by WLBT?near dawn hanging on trees outside the state Capitol Monday.
  • Miss Mary Chapman, who was recently awarded a free trip to the National 4-H Club Congress in Chicago, has won many other honors. Miss Chapman has been a member of the House 4-H Club for the past five years, having a poultry project for one year and a Garden and Canning project for four years. She completed high school at Bloomo in 1935 and has been assistant leader for the Bloomo 4-H Club for the past three years. 
  • In this passage the Lord gives instructions to Israel pertaining to how they are to live as his people. At this point they have been out of Egypt for 7 or 8 weeks, and they are encamped at the foot of Mt Sinai. The Lord is going to give the 10 Commandments and the Levitical law at this place, but first he reviews the framework of grace by which he has delivered Israel, and the way they are to think of it.
  • This is the week we observe Thanksgiving Day. The origin of this day is from the Pilgrims in the area of Plymouth, Massachusetts, in the fall of 1621. They gathered to give thanks to the Lord for their first harvest in the new world. We can learn a lot about the true meaning of Thanksgiving from studying the Pilgrims. We can learn from their reasons to come to America.
  • EDITORIAL/The immaculate election
    This sounds elemental, as it ought to be. Every legitimate voter — from new immigrant to descendant of the Mayflower voyager — is endowed with exactly the same electoral value, one vote and each voter entitled to cast it only once. Citizens one and all, they settle their differences on Election Day. Or so they think. Then cries and shrieks split the morning-after calm, pleading that the tally is unfinished, incorrect, illegitimate.
