Failing schools, failing city. Those are usually synonymous. Philadelphia is passing.
  • Remember Dickie Scruggs? It turns out he and those involved in his judicial corruption scandal operated closely with the Biden family in Mississippi and Washington.
    The Dutch are worrying because mines are coming up on the beaches in the northern part of the Netherlands, present a problem to the Dutch authorities. With as many as 15 mines have been reported found in one day in the section of the beach. The Dutch have cause to worry and some of the mines explode as they drift towards the shore and others remain “alive” until touched off by human hands.
  • GETTING THE MESSAGE/Colossians 4:2-6
    We have looked at these verses individually, but it can be helpful to take them as a whole and consider the emphasis Paul makes on hearing God’s word. He asks for prayer so the Lord will provide open doors for the proclamation of the gospel. He also covets prayer so that he will speak the truth of Christ clearly, making it plain to those who hear it.
  • Impeachment is about to make everything worse. 
    Miss Laree Mowdy and Miss Arlie Ruth Smith of the House 4-H Club won second place in Clothing Judging at the Mid South Fair recently held in Memphis, Tennessee. Fourteen clothing teams entered from four states represented. Miss Elizabeth Cole, member of the Forest Dale 4-H Club, was among the highest ten in the poultry judging contest. Neshoba Countians are proud of the excellent showing made by these contestants.
  • Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself.     
  • GETTING THE MESSAGE/Colossians 4:5-6
    In these verses Paul speaks to us of the importance of being a conscientious Christian witness. He had asked the Christians in Colossae to pray that the Lord would open doors for the gospel to go forth, and now he directs all Christians to be outreach-oriented, holding out Christ to a lost world.
  • BUCHANAN/Biden’s Ukraine problem
    With the revelation by an intel community “whistleblower” that President Donald Trump, in a congratulatory call to the new president of Ukraine, pushed him repeatedly to investigate the Joe Biden family connection to Ukrainian corruption, the cry “Impeach!” is being heard anew in the land
  • LOWRY/Kids are powerful climate pawns
    The celebrity teen climate activist addressed the United Nations and excoriated the assembled worthies for coming “to us young people for hope. How dare you! You have stolen my dreams and my childhood with your empty words.”
    There will be an Old Fiddlers’ Contest at Forest Dale School House, Friday night. Admission will be 10 cents and 15 cents. Cash prizes will be awarded to winners.
