Entertainment for Americans throughout history, and especially this century, has been and continues to be extremely important. In the 1900s recreation centered on churches and school.  Social functions surfaced in the form of pie and box suppers, revival services, school plays, games, and just family and neighborhood gatherings. The bulk of the population was not afforded the luxury of travel and therefore had to seek the people and experiences of other cultures and places through books.

“Glimpses of Politics”

Those who are seeking public office are now making final appeals at trying to win votes and influence people. I once believed that politics only affected a few people, but I have come to discover that politics touch the lives of everyone.

A tribute to James Herald


James sat on the back left hand pew in Eastside Church of Christ next to the window. Always, he and family were early to service. And those who entered to sit on that side of the church frequently shook his hand and paused for some small talk before moving onto their selected pews. James and wife, Elizabeth, and family usually occupied the entire back pew.
