    The Kemper County Board of Supervisors took no action regarding two agenda items related to the operation of the City Park during its regularly scheduled meeting on Nov. 21.

    The board tabled an order that would have approved new policies and procedures for operation of the park and also tabled an order that would have authorized the purchase of a four-camera system that would provide surveillance at the park during non-operational hours. The system was estimated to cost $1,446.

  • NW falls just short in epic 1A South State Championship
    Wednesday, November 30, 2016 6:00 PM
    For as long as they can remember, Nanih Waiya football players may very well feel like they should have had an opportunity to play for a Class 1A state championship this season.

  • DUNCAN/“What is the Kingdom of God Like”
    Wednesday, November 9, 2016 6:00 PM
    This week we will look at Luke 13:18-21. In this passage Jesus tells two parables describing the kingdom of God. ‘Kingdom of God’ refers to the reign of God in this world and especially in the hearts of men and women and boys and girls. Jesus talks about it all the time. His gospel is bringing in the kingdom, and the kingdom creates the people of the kingdom, the church of our Lord Jesus Christ.

  • EDITORIAL/Jack Wilson for Court of Appeals

    Turn to Luke 12:49-59. As you look through this passage, let me give you a few clues along the way to help you follow the train of argument. There are at least three parts to this passage. First, in verses 49 and 50, and especially in verse 50, Jesus makes a powerful declaration. He’ll follow it up in verses 51 to 53 with a penetrating question. Then, in verses 54 to 59, He turns to the multitudes and gives them an admonition, warning them because they lack spiritual discernment.
  • Wednesday, October 12, 2016 6:00 PM
    Turn in your Bible to Luke 12:35-48. Jesus turns His attention here to the issue of how we live daily as His disciples. He's especially concerned that His disciples would live in such a way that they are ready for His return. And He is particularly interested that His disciples would be good shepherds of His sheep and that His people would live lives of mutual service.
