     Citizens Academy Graduate

    The La Grange Police Citizens Academy is a 10-week course sponsored by the La Grange Police Department. My wife and I recently had the opportunity to attend and it was time well spent.  The academy is free, by the way, and held at the police station in downtown La Grange.

  • Judas, Hated and Scorned
  • Going back home

    By Ginger Lumpkin

    Having my childhood and early adult life pretty evenly split between Indiana and Tennessee, I find that my allegiance is often torn.  There are so many things I love about the Hoosier State; the first signs of spring after a long, hard winter, pork tenderloin sandwiches bigger than the hog they came from, and some of the kindest, most friendly people you could ever hope to meet.

    There are many excuses why people do not pay their taxes.

  • Do you desire more knowledge of God?

     We read in II Peter 1:3, “His divine power has given us everything we need for life and godliness through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness.” (NIV) These words got me to thinking about how we know who God is.  I don’t doubt God has made himself known to us, but in the day-to-day life of most people this seems to be an elusive knowledge.
