  • PASTOR POPHIN: Joy in heavenly thinking

    For six years, I had the honor and privilege of serving as chaplain for a hospice organization. Those years are ones that made an impression on my life that has changed me forever. I served a variety of people during that time. I served those of strong Christian faith, agnostics, atheist and those of other faiths. As far as those who had the same Christian perspective that I have, the group was a little over half.

    After the wonderful soaking rains that many of us received just over a week ago, it’s good to see some sunshine for a change. I’ll admit that I was one of the luckier ones in the rain department. Although those of us in the southern part of Parker County got more than our share, a lot of folks farther up the Brazos watershed were shortchanged.

  • LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: Immigration

    Why are tens of thousands of children suddenly entering the country from Central America? If it is due to the president and Democrats in Congress’s attempt to give immigration status to the children who were brought into this country illegally by their parents years ago, why isn’t there a flood of Mexican children crossing our southern border? Why just kids from three Central American countries?

    Since I served in the Navy for the bulk of my most productive years, I often make reference to the people and places I saw during this lengthy journey.

    I find it difficult to trust many categories of people these days. We the people are fed outrageous lies and led in the wrong direction by many politicians. Lawsuits without merit are filed by lawyers with collusion of their less-than-honest clients.

    Almost without exception, most farms are protected to some degree by guard animals. Dogs and cats are most commonly used to defend against intruders and nuisance pests around the farmstead. In recent years with the proliferation of coyotes, many folks are using guard donkeys or llamas to protect their livestock.

    Not much is known about this Joseph’s life. The one thing I know for sure is that he was a very brave man.
