March 14, 2013

We live in a world today that is filled with hatred and deceit. We also live during times when the Christian community is alive, well and quite active in missionary and community service. But there are those who say they are Christians and love all of humanity, but their lack of enthusiasm and charity exhibits everything but love.

Walker: The sequester is here

March 7, 2013

A few weeks back, we discussed how thousands of jobs, mostly those in the areas of defense and military, would be cut as of March 1 if no deal was reached to avoid the cuts.
Last Friday, these cuts went into effect and were signed into law by our President. Nearly $1.2 trillion dollars of cuts----over 750,000 jobs----all cut over night. Not only were defense employees, budgets, and the military cut back, but so also were thousands of dollars in grant programs, which will affect many of our colleges and universities across the nation.
