Bear with some small changes to the Bear Creek Reservoir's location, because it'll mean the roads around it won't have to close during its construction.

City OKs changes for mini-warehouses

"Non-conforming" is a designation no business owner wants. It means a business can't be rebuilt if more than 65 percent of the building is burned, or if things are put on hold for more than six months. And it makes selling such a business much more difficult.

Political stereotyping

While we might like to think that voters research the issues, review the candidates, and then vote for the candidate that best reflects their views, the reality, based on political science research, is much different. A

Tuition pays for this

According to College Board, average tuition and fees for the 2013-14 school year totaled $30,094 at private colleges, $8,893 for in-state residents at public colleges and $22,203 for out-of-state residents. Many schools, such as Columbia University and George Washington University, charge yearly tuition and fees close to $50,000. Faced with the increasing costs of higher education, parents and taxpayers might like to know what they're getting for their money.

Get your hands dirty

The church is failing in a big way! Yes I am aware God has, and continues to use, the church to reach the lost and minister to the world in mighty ways. However, one of the greatest and most foundational tasks given to the church by Christ is one of the things the church is neglecting the most - "discipleship." I have often said, "We are outraged at the idea of someone abandoning a newborn and we should be, but yet the church does this everyday to those who are newly born again."

Wake Up Call

Wake up. For some people I know, those are some of the harshest words in the English language. "Wake Up" is not always an easy thing to hear. But in our lesson for today, it's what Jesus is calling to us, his Church, specifically to each and every one of us. Wake Up.

Even the stones will cry out

Clouds of smoky dust unrolled as trucks entered the lot. While I walked toward my destination, I noticed the adjacent cemetery. Quiet, except for the occasional bird, I became increasingly aware of the noise that my feet were generating. Crunching, wobbling and moving forward through the newly poured gravel, I stopped to look at one of the stones.

The Christian citizen

Well, most elections are over. You may be happy with the outcome, or you may be disturbed with the results. I for one am not too worried. My hope has never been in who sits in the White House, or who sits in the Courthouse or who sits in our Congressional offices; my hope is in the one who sits on the throne of heaven, and that has not changed.

American made

Dear Editor: It amazes me that we can be sitting here having a discussion on whether or not to bail out the U.S. auto industry. There are actually people in this country who are prepared to see them fail, and some who say it may even be good for our country. Just where do these people come from?

 How can we possibly be prepared to call ourselves the most powerful nation on earth, when we may soon not even be able to build the cars that we drive? Is there no pride left in "American Made?" Oh, forgive me.

Smoke's final run is here, but what a run it's been

Sunday's NASCAR race at Homestead marks the end of an era. Jimmie Johnson will win his third straight championship – that's the big story. But perhaps as equally significant, Tony Stewart will crank the engine of No. 20 The Home Depot car for Joe Gibbs Racing for the last time.

A gathering of neighbors

Well, it's time to move on. But before we turn the page, I would like to congratulate all of the newly elected public officials throughout the county, state and nation. And of course, 145 years since emancipation, 100 years since the founding of the NAACP, 45 years since the March on Washington, 40 years since the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., America's 44th president is an African-American. How did this happen? As we seek to understand the new world, let's review the making of this moment.

All God’s children

Barack Obama's election has everyone talking about Martin Luther King's "I have a dream" speech. It was 45 years ago when King dreamed of his children being "judged not by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character." That is the sort of justice that we all want for our own children.
