  • New law will apply sales tax to 17 various services

  • Last time filing taxes under 'arcane' federal system

    This time of year, Americans are taking part in an annual headache-inducing ritual: filing their income tax returns.

    April 21, 1988 (30 years ago)

  • The road to Emmaus is the road to hope

    Easter has passed, but I’m still thinking about a part of the gospel story of Christ’s resurrection that I often miss.

    It happened on that Sunday.

    Early in the morning the women had gone to the tomb where they had placed Christ’s body on Friday after his crucifixion.

    The women found the tomb empty and an angel told them Jesus wasn’t there, that he had risen, just as he had said.

    That part of the story I’ve never forgotten.
