  • 44 shooting at state; Doyle thanks coaches, parents

    As you know, the Carroll County 4-H Shooting Sports Club is gearing up for state and are we ready!

    This past Sunday we had two trap shooters hit 25 out of 25 – WOW. It is a custom for the other members of the team to shoot the cap of the member who gets a perfect score. So Cameron Darnold had his cap shot numerous times as shown in the picture. Luke Heveline also had a perfect score and did not wear a cap so his cap will be shot by the team members next Sunday.

  • A religion and a relationship

    If you are in a Christian circle you probably heard this phrase: “Christianity is not a religion, it’s a relationship”, and the syllogism that accompanied this saying: “religion is a man’s attempt to reach God, Christianity is God’s attempt to reach man; Therefore, Christianity is not a religion.” This became so familiar to us that we adopt it without thinking this saying has many inherent problems. I believe this type of reasoning is invalid for three reasons for being in contradiction:

  • Students visiting the library after school must obey the rules

    School starts next week. Social media will be flooded with first day of school pictures, and parents are split on whether the first day of school is an unofficial holiday they look forward to or a day they dread, maybe as much as their children.

    I think the first day of school creates a little buzz around our community. Things look just a little bit different: more traffic in the morning, fewer bikes riding around town, an empty County Pool, days start getting shorter and evenings begin to fill up with football, soccer, volleyball and homework. The library is no different.
