How to make your life really count

June 13, 2013

I hurriedly buckled my son up in his car seat, slid the door of the minivan shut, and reached for my own door.
Hoping to be safely in my seat before the oncoming traffic sent me hurling through the air, I was in no mood for a lengthy conversation.

Having discovered nothing that was suitable for purchasing, I was risking my life to corral my family back into the van.

TobyMac headlining Friend Fest

June 13, 2013

NAPPANEE — Summer is here, which is nice for outdoor events, but especially for one extravagant event set for later this month – a concert featuring Christian artist TobyMac and 21 other performers. 
The WFRN Friend Fest of this year is scheduled for Friday, June 21, and Saturday, June 22. 
Those in Nappanee will be closest to the location, but it is an event that many people have gone to in the past and will again attend this year.
Music often comes with the season of summer, and that is why the WFRN Friend Fest will be quite a hit in the Marshall County area.

June 7, 2013

Each year, thousands of seniors living in our communities are victims of elder abuse, neglect and financial exploitation.
