    “Mass in Point Park”

  • 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.

    Ladies notch first win

    The Carroll County Lady Panthers golf team won its first match under head coach Allison Burgess Aug. 2. The girls defeated Gallatin County, 228 to 231.

    “They were surprised but I knew they had the ability to do it this year,” Burgess said.

    The girls did not have any penalty strokes during the match, which helped them earn the win, she said. Senior Ciara Hamilton medaled, shooting a 51.

  • Trio of seniors leads experienced Lady Panthers volleyball team

    “We can play a lot of post season volleyball on our home floor,” Eaglin said.
