  • ‘God saved us all’

    Straight-line winds earlier this evening caused major damage and sent a number of people preparing for a church service scrambling for their lives.

    The storm that blew through the Alton area of Anderson County around 6:30 p.m. tore the roof off a daycare center called Abundant Life Christian Learning Tree House. At nearby Florida Tile, the strong winds flipped over two FedEx trailers and damaged a portion of the roof. The winds also damaged several homes and uprooted a number of trees.

    There were no reports of injuries.

  • Christianity: a relationship with a person

    You never really know how people perceive what you write till someone stops you and asks a question. That is what happened after my last contribution. The question: “What was it that these men discovered that really helped them achieve change?”
    As we spoke we were able to narrow it down to three primary ingredients that helped opened the door for them. The first ingredient focused on Christianity not being a religion, but a relationship with a person. And, that person just happens to be Christ.

  • Bread makes meals better

    Bread compliments any meal you cook. I’ve always been a bread lover and for me, bread does more than compliment a meal, it makes it.
    Why do we always love the things that aren’t good for us? Well, when it comes to food, at least, it just plain ol’ tastes better.
    The recipes I’m sharing with you today are bread at its best, and I guarantee that you’ll go back for seconds.

  • School board addresses ‘pay inequality’

    During a recent meeting of the Anderson County Board of Education, food service personnel expressed concerns about what they deemed “pay inequality” among staff.
    A small group of food service staff members claimed that staff who worked at the high school were paid 10 percent more than their counterparts at the middle school. The board approved a new food service salary schedule, it claims should rectify any payment inequalities among food service personnel.
