  • Good grief! Charlie Brown has come to life

    Amy Wobbema|Jun 26, 2023

    As I write this, summer has officially begun. It's the Summer Solstice, the longest day of the year. The weather is fine, and it's time to take in a live show (or nine). This year a pop culture icon will come alive at the little theatre on Central Avenue in New Rockford. "You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown" debuts July 12 at Old Church Theatre, featuring the art of cartoonist Charles M. Schulz. "Peanuts" debuted in newspapers on Oct. 2, 1950, years before my parents were even born. The short...

  • Does TV-industry budget-cutting worry you?

    Danny Tyree|Jun 26, 2023

    Maybe it’s a good thing that my teenage dream of becoming a TV programmer never materialized. Analysts have regarded the over-the-air free TV networks as dinosaurs for years, but now even the cable channels and streaming services are watching over their shoulders for asteroids. Oh, the new Golden Age was nice while it lasted – with companies trumpeting ambitious 5-year plans for special-effects-heavy prestige projects, offering new life to niche programs dumped by the traditional networks and...

We focus this week on the adequacy of constitutional limitations, turning next week to the questio...

  • Sermonette: The Doctrine of the Trinity

    Rev. Amy Kippen|Jun 26, 2023

    Growing up in the church, I learned very early on that God was three in one. I remember that in Sunday school, my teacher read a really awesome book to us about the Trinity. It was called "Three in One." It was a bright green book with a drawing of an apple on the front cover. The book taught that in an apple there are three parts – the skin, the core and the white part we eat. Then the book taught us that just like there are three parts of the apple that are all the apple, there are three p...

  • Living on Purpose: Being transformed by the renewing of our mind

    Billy Holland|Jun 26, 2023

    When we think about the challenges and possibilities of our future, it’s easy to ignore our responsibilities while we imagine someone else stepping into our situation and helping us achieve our goals. Hoping that another person will provide what we need or figure out the solutions to our problems is not a substitute for perseverance. It’s true, there are times when the generosity of others makes a huge difference, but God has given us a sound mind and unlimited potential to be successful if we c...

Peonies can grow for many years and are often found still growing around old houses and in old cemeteries. There is a common shrub form of the peony, mentioned above, as well as tree forms...

    On Jan. 20, 1906, F.F. Fisher returned from a family reunion in Wisconsin.
