As usual some people took my message the wrong way, (God bless you).
If God has no place in our government or the founding of our nation why in his name on so many things. They are on our money, courts, monuments, there is even a minister hired to offer a pray in congress and the senate. Our fore fathers expressed their faith in God.
Now that being said. There has always been a prayer offered at the beginning of sporting events, at meetings, at schools, and any event when we call upon the Lord to watch over us or others for as long as we have been a country.
Why is it that if you believe in another religion or do not believe in anything you don't respect the believes of the majority of the people in this country? The old saying "when in Rome" comes to mind. If before a meeting in Iran a holy man says a prayer it’s'ok with me, before a game, before a camel race, it’s still ok with me. So for this is our country.
This being politically correct is so infantile it is sometimes funny. The ACLU should be disbanded in this country. They cause more conflict than any other group, they are minority run and controlled. The majority is what is supposed to rule in this country.
God help America.
In an emergency, can rescue teams quickly find you?
For the most part, we haven’t had any severe winter weather here yet. And winter doesn’t officially start until Dec. 21.
But we can expect some cooler temperatures and they often bring some tragedies in the form of house fires.
A great community
A few weeks ago my family and friends had a fund drive for me. I would like to thank everyone that had a part in The Day For Duke. Words can’t describe how I felt that day and still do!

One might find great resolve in Mandela’s life
There’s a scripture in the Bible that says “A soft answer turneth away wrath.”
Whenever we think of Nelson Mandela, that verse should come to mind. Many would say he epitomizes that notion even though in his younger days he might have exuded much more spit and vinegar in pursuing a cause.

It’s true: Objects are closer than they appear
You know that little warning on your rearview mirror that says, “Objects are closer than they appear.” Well, it’s true.

How did those lame names happen?
I’ve often wondered what process is used to determine the mascot name for a football team. Is there a committee formed to do this? Is it thrown out to the public in the form of a contest to come up with a moniker? Were two drunks in a bar involved?

In retrospect, tragedy seemingly gains new light
It’s often said that hindsight is 20-20. Many of us have instances in our lives where that thought would have application.
Now comes the Trayvon Martin/George Zimmerman case. As you recall, Zimmerman, described by some as a cop wannabe who couldn’t make the grade, killed young Martin. The jury acquitted Zimmerman of homicide charges. Many felt the prosecution was weak.
