  • Gracious gifts from God

    “My Uncle Mordecai saved my father by shooting an Indian who was creeping up on him with a tomahawk.”

    Abraham Lincoln

    You might know that Abraham Lincoln was president when he issued his famous 1863 proclamation establishing a day of thanks for the “gracious gifts of the Most High God.” This officially recognized what we know today as “Thanksgiving.”

  • Forgotten things remembered

  • S. Wiley: Theater carpenter

    It was breakfast last Saturday at the Ken Begley house. Everyone was asleep except for me and my 89- year-old former New York City financial advisor, Mr. S. Wiley. I’ve been holding Mr. Wiley hostage for the last few years, ever since he lost all my retirement money in the stock market bubble when it popped.
    Mr. Wiley was drinking his coffee and reading the paper when he said, “My, my young man, I’ve lived 89 years I’ve never seen such a shellacking in all my life.”
    “You mean Obama and the Democrats in the last election?”

  • Patriots finish tournament 1-1

    Just as every Mid-South Conference team, St. Catharine College views the Georgetown Tigers as the team to beat each year. And this year, after meeting them last weekend in an early season tournament, J.T. Burton’s team will have three chances to upend the league’s perennial heavyweight.
    Make that two chances now, as Burton’s bunch dropped a 78-66 decision at Georgetown Friday in the first round of the Andrew Elswick Memorial Tournament. The Patriots, however, did make amends on Saturday with an 81-50 rout of Southern University-New Orleans.

  • Protect your home from bed bugs


    Remember the nursery rhyme – “Good Night, Sleep Tight, and Don’t Let the Bed Bugs Bite?” No longer is this just a nursery rhyme. Bedbugs are considered to be public health pests by the Center for Disease Control (CDC), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the US Department of Agriculture (USDA). Recent complaints about bed bugs are increasing and have prompted a joint statement on bed bug control by the CDC and the EPA.

  • Overstuffed with stuff


    I have too much stuff. I know I do.
    But on second thought, do I? How do we know when we have too much stuff? Who is the judge of that?
    My guess is, I’m not alone in thinking I have too much stuff; most Americans would join me in the “I’ve got too much stuff” confessional.  In our consumer driven society, owners of speciality stores make money helping us find ways to store more of our stuff so they buy more stuff for themselves.
