  • Why do we have fear? One may say that the devil is behind it all. The devil does not want us to have happiness and peace. Adam’s disobedience in the Garden of Eden caused him to fear when he heard God’s voice calling to him. He had disobeyed God and knew he was not ready to face him.

  • A few weeks ago, a pack of coyotes attacked Heidi Myers’ sheep flock. They decimated her newborn lambs and yearlings and killed about 10 adult ewes.

    Although Myers is an animal lover who cares for several varieties of livestock on her Mt. Sherman farm, she couldn’t condone such slaughter. She turned to an expert for assistance.

    Thomas Downey, a full-time professional trapper, began setting snares in the areas where the coyotes are entering the sheep pasture this week.

  • Doctors said she’d never walk again.

    But seven months after a wreck left her paralyzed from the waist down, 19-year-old Kim Fisher is proving them wrong.

    She maneuvers around her Buffalo home with the aid of a walker, although she can take tentative steps holding onto furniture and the wall. She wears a brace on her right ankle to stabilize it.

    “She’s come a long way in a very short time,” said Kim’s mother Becky.

    It’s an amazing recovery that Becky attributes to providence and Kim’s determination.
