From the Clocktower – There is a time for everything… Isn’t there?

By Kathi Bliss Editor/POST-REGISTER   A person of faith, but not necessarily of religion, one of my grandmother’s favorite Biblical passages Ecclesiastes 3:1-8, which reminds us that there is a time to every purpose under Heaven.

From the Clocktower – It’s time to get back to business

By Kathi Bliss Editor/POST-REGISTER   They finally did it. I never thought that they would actually do it, but our so-called leadership actually did it.
