The Children's Village is in need of child sponsors

The Children’s Village at Christian City is a residential, family centered program which cares for abandoned, abused, and neglected children who have no other safe place to go.  The children live in cottages with full time house parents on the Christian City campus located in Union City. Most of the children come to The Children’s Village with nothing but the clothing on their backs, meaning the bulk of financial support for providing the basics comes from caring individuals in the community, churches, businesses and civic groups.   Read More»

The goofy world of judges and ‘hotties’

Sometimes the truth is indeed stranger than fiction; and sometimes you don’t really know what’s truth and what’s fiction.

Recently, District Attorney Scott Ballard, along with Chief Public Defender Joe Saia, released the results of their so-called, “investigation” into the Judge English affair.

I have to give the DA’s office credit. It took them just a few short days to determine that English’s affair with public defender Kim Cornwell didn’t affect any of his rulings in well over 200 cases, many of which had been reassigned to English’s courtroom. Read More»
