Cold bats give Newton its third loss

Even with the winter weather we experienced this past week, spring sports are off and running in full affect. The Newton High School baseball team has already got into the middle of their non-region schedule. Due to several rain-outs, Newton had only played two games until Friday evening where they were looking to get a win over the MLK Lions. Going into the game 0-2, Newton needed this win to kick start the season, but couldn't get it done and fell 8-4 to the Lions.

What do Mormons believe?

I am a Chuck Colson fan. Colson is the former Nixon aid who was "Born Again," started a prison ministry, and who now writes the most interesting commentaries - reflections on the news from a Christian perspective. It is hard to disagree with someone with whom you find so agreeable. But recently Colson has made comments questioning whether or not the religion of Mitt Romney, Republican candidate for president, is a Christian religion. Mitt Romney is a Mormon. Colson has written, "Mormonism either affirms historic Christianity, or it doesn't. Since it doesn't, it can't call itself Christianity."

He died because he chose not to run over the car that pulled out in front of him in a 65-mile-an-hour zone or the truck coming the ...
