I Remember Dad: The Tent Revival

By Richard Mabey Jr.

 Author’s Note: I changed the name of the real town, where Dad gave a sermon during a religious camp meeting, to Squirrel Valley, West Virginia. Please know that the real Squirrel Valley does lie in the eastern panhandle of West Virginia.

 There are moments wherein the fiber and fortitude and strength of a loved one shines forth, with the brilliance of a beautiful diamond. It is in these moments that time seems to stand still, and we soak in the wonder and charm, deep into the crevices and chambers of our hearts. We long for time to stand still, in the futile hope that the moment would last forever.

OPINION: CNN’S Lemon of a Town Hall Meeting

From the right


CNN became apoplectic whenever former President Donald Trump called them “fake news,” but on July 21, they offered President Joe Biden a nationally televised boost that can accurately be described as a “fake town hall.”

A real town hall would sell tickets in a city like Cincinnati and let the locals mix it up with the president and ask him whatever was on their minds. That’s not what CNN did. It was an “invitation only” audience, which means nobody boos or laughs at inappropriate times. CNN was talking over the video, but when Biden waved goodbye at the limited crowd, they gave him a standing ovation.

Denville Rotary Clubs Answer the Urgent Call for Blood Donors

As the New York Blood Center (NYBC) says, stepping on a Lego brick with your bare foot hurts, doesn’t it? So does hitting your thumb with a hammer! A lot of things hurt, but donating blood to save lives isn’t one of them.

This year, a rise in the number of trauma cases, organ transplants, and elective surgeries that require blood products has depleted inventories, so the need for blood donors is great.

Create a Home Office that Works

Although a growing number of businesses are reopening their in-person office spaces, many are maintaining remote workforces or implementing hybrid schedules. While the shift signals steps toward more traditional, familiar work environments, it also presents some challenges.

If your temporary remote work schedule is headed for a more permanent status, or if you’ll be straddling both worlds indefinitely, it may be time to make some changes to ensure your home office is up to the task.

Do Your Research

Before making any significant purchases, do some digging to learn all you can about the devices and equipment you’re considering, especially if you’re planning to create an efficient setup using smart technology.

OPINION: Why Spending Matters in Times of Inflation and High Debt

Attention readers: Mark Shields is off this week. Please enjoy the following column by Veronique de Rugy.

A lot of people don’t care about the nation’s growing debt. Some believe that low interest rates for the foreseeable future essentially means a free lunch for the government. Others believe that no matter what the cost of this debt, it is all worth it because of the purported higher returns on government spending. But there is an argument that may convince them otherwise: If inflation ever gets out of control, it’s easier to deal with it in a lower-debt environment.
