For many of us we seem to be asking, where is truth? People have always been in search of this, whether in religion, self or political systems. Even Pilate was asking this of Christ when he asked, “What is truth?” and he never waited to receive the answer. (John 18:38) At the end of the day, everything we seek, search, and live for is to know truth. It’s instilled within all of us. Our justice, science and medical systems are founded and based upon getting to the truth of the matter or diagnosis. We ask this of relationships as well. We look for a trust and truthfulness in everything.

Christ was so bold in stating “I am the way and the truth.” (Jn. 14:6) And for this reason he came to testify of the truth. If we can possibly look at this with open eyes as we do with most questions we wrestle with and try to resolve, we just may find this to be a very reasonable process. Christ also asked of us to “ Come now, let us reason together,” (Isa.1:18) This is asking for a discussion and a search of what He's saying to be truthful. He's asking us to be true to ourselves and drop our inborn defenses against Him.


I watched with pride and tears as the residents applauded all the law enforcement and first responder officers as they left Watertown, Massachusetts. Those officers had to have been so humbled and proud by the outpouring of appreciation. Let’s not forget our entire law enforcement and military brothers and sisters as they give their all every day to keep us safe. Their motto is serve and protect.

Did you hear about this great machine that performs functions of an ingenious mechanical robot, but it’s a simple structure, very energy efficient, non-polluting and dirt cheap. Everyone can afford to have one in their own backyard.

This machine is so simple it is run by energy from the sun and doesn’t even need solar panels. And without any pistons or wires, it can make food and fuel simply from air and water, free of charge to the consumer, without an ounce of pollution.


I want to offer further discussion on the Dept. of Highways proposed closure of the left turn lane from Cat Creek Road on to Hwy 441. The recent information meeting at Franklin City Hall was attended lightly by property owners in the Holly Springs area. Those that did attend were unanimous in their disapproval of this ridiculous proposal. Not only was it ill thought out but would result in an even more dangerous result than what the DOT's bean counters have come up with. For those who did not attend the meeting let me point out the flaws in the existing proposal.
