Taking Baby Steps

Tonight as I was praying over my daughter before bed time I thanked God for baby steps. Now that may not seem unusual to those reading this but I have not given you all of the information. My daughter is eighteen years old and a freshman in college. Needless to say this brought memories of her journey so far gushing into my mind like the Hoover Dam had been breached.

It’s time to draw the line with the EPA

By ROGER HORTONGuest columnistFrankly, I am tired of watching coal mining jobs disappear. I am tired of watching families lose homes and cars, lose their life-savings, their retirement and health plans.

The story of Jonah and the fish

There’s a ginormous fish on my coffee table. It’s for my Jonah and the Fish game. I made it out of a laundry basket and a big garbage bag. It has big teeth and a long tongue.
