  • Help with the stress

    We would all agree that we are living in stressful times.  The threat of terrorism added to living in this technical age results in stress on every side.  Many people endure life, while many others are living a joyous life.

    Paul’s words to the Philippians gives us some steps for managing stress and having joy in our lives (4:4-8). ”Rejoice in the Lord always” (4:4). Is this possible?  Listen to Paul’s strategy.

  • Tax season is here... Ugh

    It’s that time of the year again as all of us faithful United States citizens file our tax returns to the IRS.

    This is one of the most painful things I feel I have to do as a U.S. citizen. To me it’s almost as agonizing as the kidney stones I had to pass in high school.

  • Budget discussions continue in state legislature

    By State Rep. Terry Mills

    Just as it is often said that games are won or lost during practice, a similar principle applies as well to legislation.  Before a bill can clear the House or Senate, it has to make it through a committee first.
