  • “I don’t want you hanging around those kinds of people!”
    For as long as there have been parents and children, children have heard this from their parents and later said it to their own children.
    Wise parents understand that their children are shaped by those with whom they spend time.
    The parental warning reminds me of the title of sermon a college friend presented to his peers in a preaching class: “Lay Down with Dogs and Get Up with Fleas.”

  • Screenings for Eminence Preschool will be from 4 to 7 p.m., Thursday April 16 and Friday April 17 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Eminence Elementary School.
    If your child will be 4 years old by August 1, he or she can be screened for EIS preschool program. Screening is necessary for placement so it is important to bring your child with you.

  • When I was a boy, I prayed to receive a horse.
    I didn’t get it.
    It was not the only thing for which I prayed that I did not get.
    I also prayed for my eyes to be healed so that I wouldn’t have to wear eyeglasses.
    More than half a century later, I still lack a horse, and I still wear glasses—now with tri-focal lenses.
    While I would have liked not to need eyeglasses, I am thankful for them and the vision they make possible.
