Are you ready for fall?
9/16/2021 9:09:02 PM

By Dr. James L. Snyder   With such a tumultuous summer, I’m glad we are now beginning the fall season. There for a while, I didn’t think it was going to come. But, contrary to my negativity, it has arrived, and I’m delighted. Summer wasn’t quite the way summers have been in the past. My family didn’t have many get-togethers and picnics like we normally do. However, we did have one, and that had to do for the summer. I’m hoping next summer we can catch up. During the past summer, the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage said several...

LOS ANGELES—Robert F. Kennedy's widow said Tuesday that his killer, Sirhan Sirhan, should not be freed, despite the recommendation of a parole board last month.

Black farmers awaiting billions in promised debt relief
9/7/2021 7:45:11 PM

By Roxana Hegeman and Allen G. Breed   BOYDTON, Va. (AP)—There was a time when Black farms prospered. Just two generations out of slavery, by 1910 Black farmers had amassed more than 16 million acres of land and made up about 14 percent of farmers. The fruit of their labors fed much of America.

And only about one in 100 farmers is Black. What happened? They were able to...

By Brian Melley   LOS ANGELES (AP)—Andy Farquhar's plans for an outdoor adventure have gone up in smoke twice this summer. The retired attorney and teacher from the Philadelphia area had planned to hike with a friend for several weeks on the Pacific Crest Trail north of Lake Tahoe until the second-largest fire in California history stampeded across the Sierra Nevada, closing a 160-mile (257-kilometer) stretch of the trail and blanketing the region in thick smoke. “I saw a satellite view of where we were going, and all it was was fire,” he...
