  • Want to read some good news? Turn to Jesus

    When we open the paper, turn on the television or turn up the radio, there is a common outcome; more often than not, what we read, see or hear is bad news.
    After all, bad news is big business. We buy magazines because of the scandal advertised on the cover; we “stay tuned” often out of an innate curiosity about the calamities of others.
    Why is this? Because all of humanity by means of our own sin are part of the bad news. We write our own headline every day with our actions and our attitudes that are antithetical to God and his word.

  • Library director rejects tax rate demanded in lawsuit

    Taxpayers can expect their library tax rates to remain flat, or decrease slightly for the upcoming fiscal year.
    If they’re expecting the library board to drop rates to the level demanded by a taxpayer lawsuit against Anderson Public Library, it won’t be an option.
    Library director Pam Mullins said she found no reason to recommend the compensating rate, at 87 cents per $1,000 assessed value, or a 4 percent revenue increase, at 90 cents per $1,000 assessed value.
