  • Make throwing trash out the window a thing of the past

    Dear Editor,

    Mt. Moriah Baptist Church took part in the local Trash for Cash as a fundraiser for the June Honduras Mission Trip. From ages 9-66, twenty of us gathered early this past Saturday morning ready to battle on the local roadways.

We appreciate the community participation which sustains this annual event.

    Knowing that the Trash for Cash program would be a nice thing to do for our community and make a little money for the baseball program is what attracted us so much when it was brought to the team’s attention by a parent. The teambuilding and the sense of servanthood that was achieved by our young men was an added bonus.

  • Devices from CES I would buy in 2017

    The 2017 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) was held in Las Vegas in January and hundreds of vendors came to show off their wares and attempt to convince resellers that you, the consumer, could not live without their products.

    CES is the geek show of the year, and if you have an interest in technology, I strongly suggest you do some Googling and check out what the show had to offer this year.

  • Senator Steve Meredith’s legislative update - March 8, 2017

    Late nights, packed committee meetings, and heated debate marked the fifth week of the 2017 session.

    The Senate is quickly passing the remaining Senate bills out and receiving bills from the House for consideration. While there were some contested issues, the Senate conducted itself in a bipartisan fashion. We wasted no time this week and passed over 40 pieces of legislation including:

    Senate Bill 9, redistricting of judicial districts in order to better align caseloads with current census data;
