Christy’s Corner The Belt of Truth By Christy Lowman Burke County Have you ever seen a King snake? They grow up to 6 ft. long and can be found all over the U.S. Some are solid black with white throats. Others are black with white or yellow spots. Some are black with white sections or chains.

Celebrating the Recovering–Our stories about Celebrate Recovery

Celebrating the Recovering Our Stories By Sandra Ayers   I am a parent with a child ho has struggled with addiction.  I will not elaborate on their struggle.  That is their story to tell.

  Museum of the Bible Attendance ‘above expectations’ By Michael Foust   WASHINGTON, D.C — Each day, Cary Summers roams the eight floors of the Museum of the Bible in Washington, D.C., talking to visitors and discovering what they like best about the massive new facility.
