The week of June 25, we hosted our fourth year of Johnson County Sheriff’s camp.  28 Johnson County students that ranged from the 4th grade to the 6th grade attended a week filled with fun and various learning activities.  

Sheriff Camp has two goals.  One is to ensure campers have a positive experience with law enforcement officers.  The other is to help establish a network of friends during an age where students will soon transition to middle school.  Those friendships can create a bond among Sheriff Campers that makes transitioning schools easier.  Campers know other campers that may already be in middle school or are from other schools going into middle school.

In a close reading of this story what immediately becomes apparent is that Adam needed corrective surgery, that he required an operation; the result of which, of course, was Eve. So as the old-time farmer’s admonition goes, God had to go back and lick his calf. In other words, He had to go back and complete His task or do it over; and in this case, create a companion for Adam, one who would become as one flesh with him, his equal. Here it is important to note that it wasn’t until after the apple incident that God arbitrarily had Adam rule over Eve and become subservient to him. 

“America is facing a full-fledged crisis in our democracy,” Hillary Clinton said to the 2018 graduates at Yale College.  What democracy were you referring to, Hillary?  The democracy that paid Bill Clinton $500,000 for his speech in Moscow shortly after the “Uranium One” deal and the $750,00…

In recognition of National Nurses Week and National Hospital Week, May 6-12, and on behalf of Paul B. Hall Regional Medical Center, I want to share my appreciation for our nurses who make it possible for us to be a health care resource for our community. We thank them for their continued dedication to providing high-quality care and improving the overall health of the Big Sandy Region.
