Luke's Word for the Week

I can imagine Zechariah's face froze, his tongue would not move, jaw dropped just a little bit, mouth open, mind racing, as he stared at the face of an angel - a messenger sent from God. The messenger was speaking and heaven was breaking in, for the world would never be the same from that moment on. I'm sure at first Zechariah's mind was flooded with a myriad of thoughts (am I in trouble, what have I done now?!).

Christmas Adam can put you in the spirit

When you retrieve this column from your mailbox, we will be roughly two weeks from Christmas Eve, one day from Christmas and one day from Christmas Adam.
Each year, it becomes more difficult to decide which of these holidays I enjoy the most. Oh wait, what's that? What's Christmas Adam, you ask?
Well, since Christmas Eve is the day before Christmas, Christmas Adam is December 23. If you don't get it, just let the name percolate for a few minutes.
At our house, Christmas Adam is much anticipated and is a highlight of the holiday season. But first, we must consider Christmas traditions.

Dear Editor:
What is the greatest threat to the United States of America? Many believe climate change (weather cycles) is the greatest threat. Others believe the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) is the greatest threat. Many believe that combined both climate change and ISIS are the greatest threats to our nation.

EFFECTIVE START

SMITHFIELD -- Grover Battle's best girls basketball teams at Northern Nash High School -- and there have been plenty of them -- usually display the same qualities.
A veteran, talented point guard. An inside presence who can score and defend.
Tenacious defense. The ability to excel both in transition and in a half-court setting.

"We just don't have any side,'' said Taylor, whose Bulldogs have started the campaign with an 0-3 overall record. "And the size we have -- we need to get better with our rebounding.
