Donated car stolen

An attempt to register a recently purchased vehicle proved fruitless when a Covington man realized the car was still owned by someone else who thought she had donated it to charity.

According to reports, officers from the Covington Police Department were called to a location on Washington Street in reference to a stolen automobile. When they arrived, they spoke to the victim who reportedly said he had purchased a 1994 Saturn station wagon from a man named "Ray" at a gas station on Washington Street and Flat Shoals Road. According to reports, the man told officers he paid "Ray" $700 ...

Real change

Recently Matthew Parris wrote in the "London Times," "Missionaries, not aid money are the solution to Africa's biggest problem - the crushing passivity of the people's mindset." He says he has "become convinced of the enormous contribution that Christian evangelism makes in Africa." Wherever missionaries lived, he wrote, "something changed in the faces of the people we passed and spoke to. They see themselves as individuals who stand in direct relationship to God - not as subservient subordinates who must kowtow to tyrants." He concludes, "In Africa Christianity changes people's hearts. It brings spiritual transformation. The rebirth is real ...

That's the new part; they're everywhere.
