Alcovy falls to Mt. Zion 32-15 on the road

The Mt. Zion-Jonesboro Bulldogs hosted the Alcovy Tigers at Tara Stadium Friday night in a game with strong regional implications. The Tigers (4-4, 3-3 Region 4-AAAA) had their sights set on taking third place in the region, but it was the Bulldogs (6-3, 5-2) who moved into second with a 32-15 victory. Few fans were cheering on either side of the stadium in the rain and bitter cold, and it was a rocky start for both teams with the weather seemingly having negative effects early on. Alcovy coach Kirk Hoffman didn't think the weather could be blamed for his ...

Circuit City to close 155 stores, cut US jobs

RICHMOND, Va. -- Circuit City Stores Inc. said Monday it is closing about 20 percent of its U.S. stores, including 14 in Illinois, and cutting thousands of jobs in an effort to return to profitability as it finds consumers reluctant to spend and its vendors less eager to give it credit.

The nation's No. 2 consumer electronics retailer said it will shut 155 of its more than 700 stores and leave at least a dozen markets entirely, including Phoenix and Atlanta, by Dec. 31. It will lay off about 17 percent of its domestic work force, which could affect ...

God is doing some building - Part III

The ground is broken. The building process has officially begun its slow journey to completion. Abiding Grace is building a church just as soon as all the ground gets moved and the signatures are all in place, and all that other stuff. But, remember, this physical building we're constructing is nothing compared with the building God is doing in us.

Higher taxes to rebuild, bind

When I think of America, I remember the land of my youth - where we put a man on the moon in less than a decade, conquered diseases like polio, small pox and others, built highways and bridges to create opportunities for growth, and had an educational system that was second to none.
