  • The U.S. Department of Agriculture recently reviewed standard large eggs from across the country and found that, in the past decade, the average nutrient content of eggs has changed.

  • Many parents worry for their families, and especially for their children’s future. But the actual question would be, what is really being done for them?
    We think that having a good job, a good house and a good car, providing them with food, buying them clothes and giving them an education so that they face the future on their own, means that we have accomplished our job as parents. But what about moral principles and, most importantly, what about God’s principles?

  • Carroll County resident Marjorie Bowers conquered her fear of heights by trekking a mountain range in the Tibetan Himalayas.

    Last year, she conquered clostrophobia – fear of tight spaces – by crawling 250 feet down a 3-foot-by-3-foot shaft into the depths of an Egyptian pyramid.

    Now she is fearless, she says with a smile.

    But conquering those fears actually has been more of a serendipitous by-product of her travels to such far-flung, exotic places. Rather, Bowers is attempting to quench her deep thirst for knowledge.
