Solders, Planes and WWII

By Margaret Salvaggio

It was hot this past weekend at Camp Hearne, but most of those who walked the grounds said it was worth it. After all, where else would you find solders in their uniforms and the jeep driving about the area with distinguished officers. It was a day to remember, and a day to get more World War II information that you could ever imagine and all you had to do is ask the questions and there were answers at the drop of a hat.

A memorable night for the Class of 2016

By Margaret Salvaggio

This past Friday night was a memorable one for the Hearne High School Class of 2016. With forty-six seniors making their entrance into the gymnasium in their caps and gowns made the whole idea of graduation surreal. The students walked in line to the traditional Pomp and Circumstance with their heads held high and huge smiles on their faces. For everything they have worked hard for was fixing to come true.

The Land of the Free

By Pastor Becky Hoffpauir

Before we can enter into freedom, we must decide if we want to go where God is taking us. In order to get milk and honey, the Israelites had to walk away from the place where Pharaoh ruled. Just like Israel, we too need to be delivered from a person (Satan) and a place. Galatians 5:1,“It was for freedom that Christ set us free; therefore keep standing firm and do not be subject again to a yoke of slavery.” In studying a certain Bible Study, I read a story from the author that was very interesting. She had taken her small children to a circus. They didn’t really care much about anything but the elephants.
