On the beat with the Chief: Working for Peel’s Police was more than a challenge

History was one of my most favorite courses of study in school. I always enjoyed, even today, anything that has a historic background.

We all have a history ourselves. Where we came from, what eras we encountered, family lineage and life experiences are all a part of our history. Even our death is history.

Prairie Writings: Make a difference in the world: Kiss the ugly too

The Bible says that the patriarch Job was a great man. And in the book that bears his name it says that he was great because he was good.

Be adventurous: Read Bible and then apply it to your life

Believing in the one and only God is the answer that you see. Trust Him and live.

I have trusted in things that have no eternal value to them. Why is it so much easier to trust in the things that corrupt and fade away?

I must give myself permission to trust in the invisible loving God.

To the editor:

The world is filled with suffering and strife; nevertheless, Jesus said we shouldn’t fear that which harms only the body. Rather, we should fear Him who can cast both body and soul into hell.  

Pauline's Corner: All foster parents not like those depicted in story

As I read the story in the Rantoul Press about Angie Fry Cox and her brother, David Fry, my heart hurt for them.

I cannot understand this kind of treatment.

Don’t the foster parents in England have rules and regulations to follow as we do in the States? Angie, all foster parents are not like the ones who terrorized you and your brother.

Be Encouraged: For all that God has done for me ...

Every day shall be a day of being grateful and a servant to others. For all God has done for me from my beginning until now I shall always be grateful and thankful.

As I think about my past, present and future, it teaches me to be forever mindful of how God has always been in my life.

Tell us your plan, Mr. Mayor

Mayor Chuck Smith,

The community of Rantoul needs your help, your leadership and, most important, a plan.

You had an opportunity several weeks ago to present some kind of a plan at the state of the village address hosted by the Rantoul Area Chamber of Commerce, the Rantoul Exchange Club and the Rantoul Rotary Club. Yet, nothing was made clear of a plan in that address.
