  • God is Spirit

    Copyright 2021 Billy Graham Literary Trust, Distributed by Tribune Content Agency, LLC|Updated May 4, 2022

    Q: Is God like us or is God basically a vapor or something that is in the atmosphere? - G.W. A: God isn't made of atoms or molecules; He isn't part of the created world. He exists in a wholly different realm. Jesus told the Samaritan woman at the well that "God is Spirit" (John 4:24). Because He is a Spirit, God isn't limited in any way. He is far greater than the material world (which is one reason we aren't to worship idols or nature). We cannot confine Him to one place,...

  • From My Perspective: Something's amiss

    Tammy Jordan|Updated May 4, 2022

    I may not watch the news, but that doesn’t mean I’m not informed. Most of my friends who do watch the news hadn’t even heard of the destruction of our food processing and distribution plants. Those who do know and have been paying attention are very concerned. For those of you who may not have heard, right here in the United States, several of our food supply chains and distribution centers are being destroyed by fire, explosions and planes crashing into their build...

  • Mom's Saddle

    Kathy Dey, Guest Column|Updated May 4, 2022

    Editor's Note: In January I ran a story my sister Kathy had written about the old 1964 Ford pickup that had been near and dear to my Dad's heart. A couple years ago, she wrote about my Mother's most prized possession, the saddle she had since she was a teenager that she nearly lost several times to keep our family afloat. I inherited my love for horses from my Mom, and it started at a young age. My Mom got her first horse sometime in the 1950s as a teenager. Of course she...

  • It might be time to consider a Lincoln Senior Center membership

    Sue Howsmon|Updated May 4, 2022

    One look outside or to feel the warming temperatures lets us know that the long, hard winter of 2022 is nearing it's end. Since the COVID-19 pandemic hit us more than two years ago life in general has taken many changes and the Lincoln Senior Center is no different. Memberships have dropped over the past few years, due in some cases to the aging of Lincoln and people who are not able to get out and around as they used to. The pandemic had kept people inside and away from...

  • Staying Safe in an Unsafe World. Part II

    Connie McCafferty|Updated May 4, 2022

    Tonight, two transients walked off the highway, came through the bushes by the creek, and rang our back door bell. I answered the door, but did not open the storm door. The tall fellow, about 20-something, dressed in black, said, "My phone is dead. Can I come in and use your phone?" His partner, also dressed in black stood by. After my article in last week's BVD about not letting any stranger into your house for any reason, it was as though Providence brought a startling...

  • A look at Lincoln-area road funding and taxes

    Roger Dey, BVD|Updated May 4, 2022

    County taxes are often a source of chagrin for Lincoln residents, with indignation often leveled at road maintenance in the area, but a look at county expenditures on roads reveals those long-standing complaints may not reflect current reality. The fact that roads in the Lincoln area are in constant need of maintenance hasn't changed. Potholes develop every winter and spring, dust and washboards plague the unpaved roads every summer and fall. But the belief that Lincoln is...
