  • Oh, dear church

    Recently, I listened to an eight-episode podcast (like an internet radio show) called “Oh Dear God.”

    Done by two young, thirtysomething women, they both grew up in the Christian faith.

    Today they like some of Christianity, but not all of it. Same goes for their feelings about the church.

    The women met at camp -- they love church camp -- and now they’re comedians who live in Los Angeles.

  • CCMS Panthers sweep the visiting Trimble Raiders

    The Carroll County Middle School boys basketball team headed off to Thanksgiving break on a high note, picking up a pair of wins over the visiting Trimble County Raiders Nov. 21. The seventh-graders got back on the right foot after losing their first game of the season three days before in the conference championship, winning in commanding fashion, 47-15.

    The CCMS eighth-graders trailed by five points at halftime, but chipped away at the deficit. They took the lead with less than a minute to go and held on to win, 28-25.
