    Signs in the windows of as many as 40 downtown New Castle buildings proclaim “This Place Matters.”

    That is, in a nutshell, the message local preservationists strive to get across about small town architectural jewels, according to Joe Yates of the historic preservation board.

  • Eminence student asks for donations for foster children

    I attend Eminence Independent School. As an eighth grader you are required to accomplish a Service Learning Project.

  • Be prepared

    Obama a government partner with God? U.S. food shortages?

    I thought this article was a joke: www.foxnews.com/politics/2009/08/20/army-lord-obama-seeks-health-care-pu...

    Apparently, Obama told thousands of religious leaders in a conference call:  “The government is a partner with God in matters of life and death”  He asked religious leaders to preach from the pulpit on the benefits of health care reform.

    So I rang God up this Sunday and asked.  “Lord, why would he say you are partners?”
