Scary Numbers For This Father's Day

Fewer people are celebrating Father’s Day than ever before, a fact that may have less to do with the nature of the holiday than it does with the nature of American families. A U.S. Census Bureau study found that the percentage of children living in single-parent households increased from 12 percent in 1960 to 31 percent in 2016. During that same timeframe, “the percentage of children living with only their mother nearly tripled.” These numbers are sobering because according to recent studies, kids who lack an engaged father (and so may be less likely to observe Father’s Day) are also less likely to experience a healthy, contented, and successful life.

Gun control advocates can now boast of a new group of allies joining their dubious coalition: witches. It kind of makes sense. We all know that gun control is based mainly on magical thinking. Its advocates, after all, ask us to believe we’re just a few more “commonsense safety measures” away from a world in which evil people who are otherwise determined to kill others refrain from doing so for fear they might violate a gun control law somewhere along the way.

Gas City Speedway IN)The widely debated question, “Which is better, wing or non-wing sprint car racing?” was not definitively answered Friday night at Gas City I-69 Speedway, as both the Great Lakes Super Sprints (GLSS) 360 winged sprint cars and the track’s regular 410 non-wing sprint cars put on memorable features that were won by Max Stambaugh and Clinton Boyles, respectively. Common knowledge however is that if you want money and fame you run a wing.

When you lose a loyal friend, the number of legs doesn't matter. As we get older the lose of special friends comes more frequently. Friends are special gifts from God that help us through the tough times and are there to celebrate the victories. For those of us who have had a loyal loving friend with four legs we know what a special relationship that can be. Youngsters at the children's home are praying for Echo that is recovering from surgery. Another special friend is searching for Dusty that has been missing for several days. It is a good heart that cares for our devoted friends. 2 or 4 legs, it doesn't matter. We pray for a good outcome in both these cases.
