  • Tyrades! Have you visited your 50th state yet?

    Danny Tyree|Jun 27, 2024

    “I’ve been everywhere, man/I’ve been everywhere, man…” - as sung by Hank Snow. I was overjoyed to hear that one of my high school classmates and his wife recently completed their bucket-list project of visiting all 50 states.

There are only 49 states, ever since scientists decided Pluto isn’t really a state.”) As I researched the 50-state accomplishment, I discovered t...

  • Letter to the Editor

    Jun 27, 2024

    View Point. While some keep pointing in one direction, others look forward to their point of correction deceiving their good points to be a sign of perfection falling from the grace of our Father’s protection. Before those untimely and awkward setbacks, they fostered a notion they were on the right track then missing the point from their lack of understanding.
