    Forrest Hershberger, Publisher, Sun-Telegraph|May 18, 2022

    On May 9, downtown Sidney's typical traffic of workers busy in the duties, the lunch crowd hurrying to their favorite menu and people out for an afternoon walk were suddenly interrupted by the site of numerous trucks, busses and RVs making their way into town from the west. The blaring horns and American flags flying proudly told observers this was not a random lineup of vehicles, but a deliberate assembly. The Peoples Convoy stopped for the night at Sapp Brothers where an assembly was held....

  • Real Climate Change

    Mike Sunderland, Thoughts from a Grey-Haired Point of View|May 18, 2022

    The Fairbanks Flood of 1967 was followed by more dramatic climate events. No sooner had 1967 turned into 1968 than we had a winter in which a raging blizzard deposited 16 feet of new snow on the Fairbanks area. We thought that should be the end of it. The weather was expected to moderate. But no, Mother Nature wasn’t finished with us. She had one more piece of nastiness for us. The coldest time of the year in Fairbanks comes in January and normally lasts but a week or so. This winter the b...

  • Delta Dawn When The Light Comes On

    Ivy Joy Johnson, The Joy Mission|May 18, 2022

    Jesus found favor with God and with man as He submitted to His parents, for God’s favor follows a humble heart. The favor of God works in imagination with power. Disorder robs time, peace of mind and clarity of thought. Whatever breaks your stride, slows you down or distracts you from essential tasks is disorder. Habits hobble or hasten. It takes just 21 days to break a bad habit or to acquire a healthy habit. Remember ‘resolve’ and ‘courage’ go together. Proverbs 12:24, 27 “The hand of the...

  • Lessons from Our Grandparents

    Forrest Hershberger, View from the Handlebars|May 18, 2022

    By some accounts, I’m one of the lucky ones. At different stages in life I knew all four of my grandparents. My memory of both sets of grandparents was after they retired. For my dad’s mom, retirement was relative. So far as I knew, she was a stay-at-home Amish/Mennonite woman who could outwork a lot of men in the 21st century. That’s just the way it was done. Men worked the farm, or whatever outside, and women managed the house and the children. That’s just the way it was. The few times I...

  • Where Do You Look for Answers?

    May 18, 2022

    In the world we live in, currently we have confusion, fear, doubt, anxiety etc... So where do we look for answers? In Philippians 4, starting in verse 4 the word of GOD says to rejoice in the Lord, I say again rejoice in the Lord. It doesn’t say rejoice in your circumstances; it says rejoice in the Lord. Why? Because GOD is greater than all the woes of the world and rejoicing in him is turning your circumstances over to him to handle, which relieves you of the stress, when you turn those things that are bothering you and find your JOY and P...

  • Pillen's Mess

    Steve Erdman, 47th District|May 18, 2022

    The Nebraska primary election is now over.

Now that the election is over, Republican party leaders are especially facing the very difficult task of trying to unify the party before the general election comes later this fall. This will be a very difficult task considering the kinds of campaign tactics that were employed, some of the...
