  • An Earley Merry Christmas

    The pastor took his customary place at the back of the church to greet the Easter crowd. As usual, the crowd had swelled to fill the sanctuary.

    The pastor saw a friend whom he knew came to church only Christmas and Easter, and said, “Hi John, I’d like to take this opportunity to say ‘Merry Christmas,’ since I probably won’t see you here again before that.”

    John muttered on the way home, “Won’t see me until Christmas! I’ll show him!”

  • Letter To the Editor

    To the editor:

    A ridiculous controversy has ensued lately about Elsie Carter’s “Mayor on Patrol” car, a retired police cruiser adorned with clown-like markings that our mayor drives around town.

    Earlier this month, Carter’s friend (and our superintendent of public works) Darleen Rusnak, told The Courier-Journal that the idea for the vehicle came from an unsuccessful applicant for the city’s police department who blamed Carter for his not getting hired and called her “Mayor on Patrol.”
