    Where lottery money goes is “a huge, huge question” that seems never to be sufficiently answered in the public’s mind, Kentucky Lottery spokesman Chip Polston said in an interview Monday. The question is nearly unending, he said.

  • Who do you trust in? Scripture shows how God is the answer

    It was autumn, and the Indians on the remote reservation asked their new chief if the winter was going to be cold or mild.

    Since he was an Indian chief in a modern society, he had never been taught the old secrets.
