Today's Opinions

  • Surrender to the power of the Holy Spirit

    My friend, theologian Brad Long, tells of a Sunday when Billy Graham came to Montreat Presbyterian Church to ask for prayer for his upcoming trip to North Korea.

  • Letters to the Editor Oct. 16

    I wanted to tell others of my experience with Judge Feeley and had intended to do it before any election campaign was going on.

  • Using God’s unconditional love in our own lives

    Fifteen years ago God sent me on an amazing journey to China to adopt my youngest daughter, Danielle. I knew as I looked into the eyes of the bewildered little girl (she was two and a half years old when we adopted her), that the amazing journey was just beginning. I have to admit I had an element of self-pride when I thought about how we would change this little orphan’s life by bringing her to the U.S. Was I in for a great surprise when I found out God had plans to use my daughter to teach me many important Bible lessons about life.

  • Local columnist gives endorsements for November election

  • Uncle Bob’s Cooking

    The leaves are changing color, the days are growing shorter and the last of canning and freezing summer vegetables is here. Now is the time to dry herbs, hang them in bunches or lay them out on newspaper. The dried herbs can be used all winter to enhance soups, stews, etc. During the fall growing season we turn toward greens, squash, pumpkins, potatoes, root vegetables and cabbage: hearty fare.

  • No need for shame with these rules

    A new trend has caught my attention. It is called, “Passenger Shaming.” On both Facebook and Instagram, you can find accounts specifically for the purpose of posting pictures of people who should be ashamed of themselves for their behavior on airplanes.

    I looked through the photos tentatively, fearing that I might see an image of myself or one of my kids. We are diligent about being good travelers, but there are occasions when, after 20 hours of jetting around with small children, that I might let my guard down.

  • Mueller: How to protect yourself

    I regularly give blood. You can give one unit (about a pint) at a time. The Red Cross will not allow you to make another donation until fifty-six days later. The Red Cross employee told me that this policy was designed to protect the health and welfare of all donors.
