It shouldn’t hurt to be a child or an adult, but the social isolation and frustration created by the pandemic have intensified and increased the number of domestic violence cases and child abuse reports.

 All night long, a steady, cool, caressing breeze flowed into my bedroom window.

In Mark 9, Jesus took Peter, James, and John to a mountain, “and he was transfigured before them,” Mark 9:3. The wording implies, that by the power of God, Jesus was changed in form and appearance.

We need more local news, we can keep up with politics on tv. I grew up in this town and all the good things about it have diminished over the years. We have no skating rink, no movie theater, no bar and the cops pretty much rule this town. My family and friends were not fortunate enough to b…

Adair County Resource Center Food Pantry will be open on Thursday, April 15, from 8:30 am. to 11 a.m.. They were open last week April 8, 2021 and gave food to 39 families.

During the early days of my delving into Bigfoot research on the scale I am in it today, I would go ghost hunting with my family. One of those trips took us to a cemetery that was created back in the 1800’s, as a matter of fact, there is a large portion of headstones that are nothing more th…

And God said, “Let us make man …” Genesis 1:26. Your life is the will of God. You are “fearfully and wonderfully made,” Psalm 139:14. He “possessed” Psalm 139 :13 you, was your God and the source of your life, in your mother’s womb.  He is great enough to make each of us the focus of his att…

I hope everyone enjoyed the Easter weekend. I always look forward to church on Easter, not only for the message, but also for the hymns we sing.  I remember most of them from my childhood. Easter is a wonderful time to resume going to church or visiting one for the first time. Perhaps someon…

Every Easter there I would go, racing across the yard at my parents’ home, trying to beat my little brother to all the brightly colored eggs that were hidden everywhere. Fun – you bet. Competitive – I can still remember whining because he found more than me. Family oriented – oh yeah, all th…

Easter has been a favorite holiday since I was old enough to wear pretty dresses with crinoline or netting for petticoats. Little girls looked adorable back then, as they do now, but today's synthetics are much softer and far less scratchy.

In Luke 6:38 Jesus said, “Give, and it will be given to you; good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, they will pour into your lap. For by your standard of measure it will be measured to you in return.” This is often applied to our church contribution, but it goes well beyo…

 So I saw a social media post where someone was bragging about living through COVID without it impeding their lifestyle (at all), and commenting that the people who adhered to the guidelines “have just lost a year of your life for no reason, and you won’t get it back.” 

We’ve turned another calendar page and that means gardening season really is ramping up. For those of you who grow fruit crops, there are several varieties that need to be fertilized at the beginning of the growing season. 

“And God hath both raised up the Lord, and will also raise up us by his own power,” 1 Corinthians 6:14.  Jesus came to earth to save us. We came into the world under the curse of sin because Adam sinned and passed the sin nature on to his descendants. Our bodies will die and our souls would …

Today was Palm Sunday.  More than 2000 years ago Jesus rode a donkey into Jerusalem knowing exactly what he would face in the days to come.  That took so much bravery and commitment to his Father, it was beyond what my poor brain can imagine.  

In past articles we have covered scriptures on prayer and how and what to pray for. We are going to cover Romans 8:15-17 and Galatians 4:6, but also tie in Romans 7:13-25. In Romans 8:15-17 and in Galatians 4:6 we see Paul is stating we are no longer servants but adopted sons, and the Holy S…

Birthday cards can be fun, silly and pretty ways to show love to friends and family on their annual celebrations of life. This year, I pondered just what the messages really mean. Some are funny, but even the funny ones can be eye-opening.

The thirst for knowledge by those first coming into Bigfoot research on what type of tactics should be used to research with is essential.  Several that we discuss today will revolve around the campfire.

 We are watching a documentary about the COVID-19 vaccines. Apparently, they are working, but only if they are taken, and spring break week has been wild in Florida. The beaches and the ‘entertainment’ parts of the resort cities are jammed with unvaccinated people preparing to bring infectio…

Colossians 3:16 is given in the form of a command, “Let the word of Christ richly dwell within you, with all wisdom teaching and admonishing one another with psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with thankfulness in your hearts to God.” 

There’s nothing sweeter than fresh fruit picked off the vine, tree or shrub. There are many species that can be grown successfully in Oklahoma with just a moderate amount of care, including apples, blackberries, cherries, figs, grapes, muscadines, peaches, pears, persimmons, plums and strawberries.

March is certainly living up to its reputation as the windy month. Perhaps it will also do as the old saying says and go out like a lamb. Only time will tell.  

In this article we will continue our lesson of prayer. We will cover Romans 8:26-27. However, before we do, let us cover the makeup of humans and then tie this scripture in. 

Adair County Resource Center Food Pantry was open Thursday, March 18, 2021 and gave food to 39 families with 79 members. They will be open again Thursday, March 25, from 8:30 a.m. to 11 a.m. 

I was recently asked during an interview by a radio show host from Toronto, Canada if there were really any Bigfoot in Oklahoma. Of course, there are, and truthfully, there are perhaps just as many in Oklahoma as there are in the Pacific Northwest of the United States.  

We had to correct our bulletin page about those in the military. We had one of our members deployed in Germany when he really is stationed in Germany. The difference between the two words escaped me, but they are definitely different.

People often wonder how Bigfoot groups do expeditions. It’s not like you see on TV in a lot of instances. This last weekend, the Mid America Bigfoot Research Center conducted an expedition south of Stilwell. Planning for it took several months. A week in advance equipment was examined and ch…

 Andy was preparing his own lunch that day. Renie wasn’t feeling well, so he was on his own.  He decided he would open up a can of soup, add a few crackers, and he’d be just fine.

 Apparently some of us are too literal. In the world in which I live, a headache is a headache. If I say somebody is waving a gun around, then somebody is waving a gun around. Yes, I know the press gets the blame for making up all kinds of stories these days (even though it’s very seldom the…

By the time the paper comes out, everyone should be used to the Daylight Savings Time.  Many people want it to stay that way year- round.  I am not so sure.  The reason is because the children riding buses are standing in the dark for many of the mornings and this always concerns me.  I will…
