  • The first page of a new chapter

    If you told me when I graduated college in the spring of 2015 that I’d be sitting here as the editor of my hometown paper, I would’ve called you crazy. Yet, here I am writing this from the managing editor’s desk.

  • 'All prayer...becomes praise'

    Editor’s note: This column is adapted from Nancy Kennedy’s book, “Praying With Women of the Bible,” which is no longer in print.

    By JANE PROCTOR

    We’ve had some family struggles -- what family hasn’t at times? -- that have put a damper on our desire to celebrate. We didn’t even put up our Christmas tree the past two years.

    However, this year my husband surprised me by bringing the tree down from the attic the day after Thanksgiving while I was at work.

    He sent me a photo, which flipped a switch in my head. It hit a “hope” spot inside me, and I couldn’t wait to decorate it.

  • Heading to the dock
