  • If it ain’t broke, God won’t fix it
  • Electrical issue closes Butler Park’s pool

    General Butler State Resort Park has been without the lodge pool for two weeks. Park manager Dave Jordan said in an interview July 10 that voltage was found on the pool’s ground.

    Jordan said the park’s safety director came to check all the parks after they had learned it could be an issue. He said voltage was found on the ground at nine other parks across the state.

    The concern was the voltage could be transferred to the pool water making the pool unsafe for anyone to enter the water said Jordan.

  • Thirsty? Drink this

    I’ve lived in Florida long enough to know that sometimes we have drought conditions and sometimes the water in the rivers and lakes gets so high it overflows.

    About five years ago, this area of Florida was bone dry. It was so dry that a local man who lived on a canal -- “waterfront property” -- converted the dried-out canal off his boat dock into a golf course, complete with putting green, fairway and a tall grass hazard.

  • Jesus offers rest to those labored and burdened

    During the United States Independence Day celebrations you might have heard all or part of the poem inscribed on the Statue of Liberty: “Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free…. Send these, the homeless tempest-tossed to me.” The Gospel, gives the same message in a more powerful way: “Take my yoke . . . and you will find rest.”
