  • What do you owe in light of the price Jesus paid?

    Charlie Brown’s dog Snoopy is typing a letter on top of his doghouse.

    “Dear IRS, I am writing to you to cancel my subscription. Please take my name off your mailing list.”

    We read in Romans 13:8a, “Let no debt remain outstanding.” We know about money, and way too much about debts. This verse reminds us to pay our bills, as if we need any help remembering that. Most of us will probably agree that not only do we know a lot about money, we probably think too much about money.

    Too much tax

    When we first moved to La Grange almost six years ago, I stopped by Kroger’s to buy a six-pack of beer to share with the movers after they had finished moving all the furniture into our new home. I was surprised to find not only did they not sell beer, but no one else in La Grange did either. Wow. What kind of a place did we move to?

  • Letters to the Editor: Snow Plows & RTW

    Snow plows

    I received an email regarding vehicles parked in the streets making it difficult for the road crews to plow the snow. I wish cars could be ticketed because in my neighborhood people constantly park on both sides of the street, making it difficult to even drive in between the cars, much less get a snow plow through! It’s one thing to have an occasional visitor park on the edge of the street, but residents should keep their cars in their driveways. How about a little write up in the paper?

  • Uncle Bob's Cooking: Fish Fry Time

    Buy it or cook it yourself

    Almost every country in the world has fish as a major food source.  Fish as a food source has a history thousands of years old. 

    Ancient Romans, Vikings, and Pilgrims that colonized America ate fish. 

    All of the immigrants that came to America brought recipes for fish from Ireland, France, Italy, England, China, Spain, Portugal, Germany, Greece and hundreds more. 

    Over the thousands of years of fish as food catching fish included hand gathering, spearing, netting, angling, and trapping. 

  • Short story about a tall family

    Occasionally, I will see someone whose height catches my eye. It doesn’t happen very often though, because I live with tall people. So, if someone appears tall to me, that means they are extraordinarily giant like.

    At 6’4”, hubby is a full foot taller than I am. For years, he was the tallest in the family until our son bypassed him, topping out at 6’6”. Our daughter tried to catch up, but stopped growing at just over six foot. None of them play basketball, but thank you for asking.
