  • Forty-two seconds.

    That’s how long it took for Tee Salinas, a senior at North Oldham High School, to transition from lovable team manager to the most-celebrated player on the Mustangs’ squad this season.

    Others might argue it took seven years of hard work and determination.

    But with seven minutes and sixteen seconds left in the first quarter of NOHS’ senior night last Friday, Tee Salinas scored a layup that rattled the school’s gym in Goshen.

    Tee had arrived.

  • What we believe about God will tell us a lot about ourselves.

    The prophet Isaiah shared this revelation from God about who God thinks He is. In Isaiah 45:5-6 we read, “I am the Lord and there is no other; apart from me there is no God. I will strengthen you, though you have not acknowledged me, so that from the rising of the sun to the place of its setting men may know there is none besides me. I am the Lord and there is no other.”

    Who do you think God is?

  • Did you hear about the guy born with two left feet? He went out one day to buy some Flip Flips. I challenge you to go find a funny story about feet. I only found a few and they were not appropriate for a religion column. Perhaps foot humor is hard to find because all we have to do is look at our own feet and that is all the humor we can stand dealing with feet. I think my feet are hilarious with all the strange toe nails, odd skin formations and things toe nails collect. My kids just think they are gross. They say they don’t feel so good when they look at my feet.

  • A wife woke up one morning and said, “Honey, I just had a dream that you bought me a new gold necklace. What do you think it means?”

    “I don’t know, but Valentine’s Day is coming soon. Friday, you’ll know,” he replied.

    A few nights later, she again woke up after having a dream, “This time, I dreamed you gave me a pearl necklace. What do you think it means?”

    “You’ll know Friday,” he replied. Another dream about a pearl necklace elicited the same response.

  • Air National Guard Airman Matthew R. Brown graduated from basic military training at Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland, San Antonio. Brown is the son of Rene Brown of Prospect and a 2013 graduate of North Oldham High School.

    The airman completed an intensive, eight-week program that included training in military discipline and studies, Air Force core values, physical fitness, and basic warfare principles and skills.

  • A sleepy, blue-eyed three-year-old takes a small musical recorder and holds it close to his mouth.

    His hair is thin and he’s a little weary, but he takes a breath and blows into the recorder anyway. Sebastian Edelen is officially awake now. And so is everyone else.

    Good thing it’s 3 p.m. on a Thursday.

    Moments later, Sebastian is playing his own tune, practicing to become an amateur photographer and squealing like a normal little boy.
