Genesis 19:14-15 (Septuagint) And Lot went out, and spoke to his sons-in-law who had married his daughters, and said, Rise up, and depart out of this place, for the Lord is about to destroy the city; but he seemed to be speaking absurdly before his sons-in-law. 15 But when it was morning, the...
Editor, I have lived in or around Willow Springs for the last 18 years. In that time I have had many dealings with the city’s numerous departments, and my comments are regarding my interaction with the City of Willow Springs and the departments it manages. In every instance I was treated...
I was thinking again about how unique and really enjoyable it is to work with elderly folks in the Mountain View Healthcare and Park Place Apartments. As I thought about it as I went to bed, still thinking about work after a busy day, a bible story came to mind.   It’s the story of The Good...
“Collins Sues to Keep Crow Off the Ballot” might be the most accurate headline ever written and I would like the VOTERS to hear why.

I am writing to you today...HORSE SLAUGHTER IS INHERENTLY CRUEL. The entire process of horse slaughter - from transport to stunning methods - is inherently cruel. Horses that wind up in the slaughter pipeline are usually purchased from unsuspecting owners by "kill-buyers" or industry middlemen...
Isaiah 30:13 - This sin will become for you like a high wall, cracked and bulging, that collapses suddenly, in an instant. Currently watching a pending calamity about to occur in my local community, I am reminded of an identical situation in the town where I grew up. Tragically, three front-...
The members of Bishop Fulton J. Sheen Council 7442 of the Knights of Columbus wish to thank members of the community for the outstanding support of our Lenten Fish Fries.  The meal count for our last two Fish Fries approached 200, numbers we wouldn't have imagined a few years ago.  We especially...
