Don't expose our children to sorcery
The Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines witchcraft as the use of sorcery or magic, communication with the devil or other familiar spirits. Sorcery is defined as the use of power gained from assistance of evil spirits. This "Harry Potter"-related event supported by the RiverPark Center teaches our children as young as 10 how to participate in this occult practice. It may be wrapped in cute and harmless sounding language, but it is not harmless. Any activity that calls upon evil spirits to do their bidding for the purpose of changing someone or altering a situation is not harmless, but instead plants dangerous beliefs and potentially evil spirits within that person.
Parents, is this your intention? Are you purposefully exposing your children to the demonic occult world? Please be alert and study this for what it is. If you are a Christian you should avoid this at all costs as it has the power to implant anti-Christian values in your children. If you are not a Christian, it is still dangerous as it can and does lead one into further evil beliefs and practices.
I have worked in the mental health field for over 35 years and have first-hand experience of seeing the devastating effects of these beliefs in our youth.
Leviticus 19:26, Deuteronomy 18:10-13 and Revelation 21:27 all clearly identify witchcraft as an abomination. Parents, do not accept this for your children. Owensboro, do not accept this in our town.
Thanks to all who support annual TREK
For the 22nd year, we say "thank you" to all who supported our recent annual TREK. Each year this event recognizes and promotes the efforts of so many in our community who advocate for three children's homes maintained by the St. Joseph Peace Mission for Children; an emergency shelter, the Yewell Home for Boys and the Hayden Home for Girls.
Our dream of developing greater services is slowly but surely becoming a reality. We give continuing thanks to the Earl and Rose Hayden family and all volunteers who help so many children in need of care.

Lewisport should vote to allow alcohol sales
A referendum in Lewisport in November will decide if the city can sell alcohol. I am in full support of this legislation. As the country found out during the Prohibition era, laws will not stop the consumption of alcohol.
Residents purchasing alcohol are taking their money out of the community and spending it in Owensboro or Tell City, Indiana. Lewisport is losing out on alcohol tax revenue, which could fund more public works projects, schools and law enforcement. Vote "yes" on the referendum in November.
