• Renewed faith

    Anyone visiting or driving by St. Charles Catholic Church may notice a bright, white statue depicting the crucifixion of Jesus. The statue was first built in 1946 in memory of a former student at St. Mary’s College, and it was recently restored.

    “It is my hope that future generations of the community will visit it as a reminder of what it represents,” said John Browning, a member of the St. Charles cemetery committee.

  • Got directions?

    I was remembering an old story the other day about a businessman barreling through the countryside in his Lincoln Town Car. The guy is hopelessly lost and stops in a little one horse town he happens upon, pulling into a service station in the days when service stations were actually service stations. The attendant saunters out, chewing on a straw, and asks the man what he needs. “I’m lost,” the businessman confesses.
