  • Faith in divine healing

    By Jim Adkins


    Healing is a subject that you don’t hear much about. Oh, you hear it on television but usually not from the pulpit at your local church. I attended church from the time when I was, oh, let’s say 8 years old, and I don’t ever remember the preacher talking about healing.

  • Is batting right, throwing left local quirk?

    I recall reading somewhere that only two percent of baseball or softball players who throw left-handed bat right-handed.
    In Major League Baseball the percentage is even lower. According to an article by Steve Treder in The Hardball Times, only 57 major league non-pitchers since 1871 have featured that combination.

    But anecdotal evidence suggests this phenomenon is a lot more common in Perry County.
