  • Summer XCELL Program

    Brooke Hanson|Jun 15, 2023

    The Summer XCELL Program is in full swing as we are finishing up our second week! This will be my fourth summer working within the program and I can confidently say this summer has been one of our greatest turn out of kids! We have been averaging about 50-60 kids so far and I have been amazed at the amount of kids showing up. It's amazing to see how two incredible communities come together to benefit the students in these summer months. The workers we have with the program this summer are so...

  • Stormy Weather

    Ray Castellanos, Courier Reporter|Jun 15, 2023

    Heavy rains hit Cascade Thursday afternoon, causing minor flooding on the north end of town. All afternoon the storm had been forming over the Adel Mountains, dark looming clouds threatening with deep rumbling thunder. Then, the rain came sweeping down in torrents, making driving difficult, windshield wipers being ineffective against the rain falling in sheets, and people caught outside scrambling for shelter. Except for the flooding, however, there was no major damage. Weather alerts later...

  • Libraries

    Edward Martin|Jun 15, 2023

    Sometimes it seems as if humanity lurches from disaster to disaster with brief periods of enlightenment in between. As we look back through history we learn about the so-called great conquerors. We hold up as persons of note men like Alexander, Genghis Khan, Attila, on and on. We build statues to these “great” men. Somehow the fact that their fame rests on the slaughter of untold millions of people who were just going about their lives before being butchered to serve the megalomania of a con...

  • Reality Check

    Norm Miller, Montana Christian College|Jun 15, 2023

    “As a dog returns to his own vomit, a fool repeats his folly,” Prov. 26:11. Well, if that’s not a slap in the face! A significant portion of the Bible is just that. Like a rude awakening, this Proverb jolts the senses and the soul. Whereas so many devotionals are low-calorie spiritual food that specialize in sugary warm fuzzies (which are likely the most popular, too), there are times when a devotional thought needs to shake me by the shoulders and turn my head around. Whether the distraction is money, lust, food, drunkenness (alcohol or drugs...

  • Getting There

    Oswald Chambers|Jun 15, 2023

    They said to Him, "Rabbi…where are You staying?" He said to them, "Come and see." —John 1:38-39 Where our self-interest sleeps and the real interest is awakened. “They…remained with Him that day….” That is about all some of us ever do. We stay with Him a short time, only to wake up to our own realities of life. Our self-interest rises up and our abiding with Him is past. Yet there is no circumstance of life in which we cannot abide in Jesus. “You are Simon….You shall be called Cephas” (John 1:42). God writes our new name only on those places in...

  • Beautifying Cascade

    Ray Castellanos, Courier Reporter|Jun 15, 2023

    Met up with Co-President of the Dearborn Garden Club ,Carol Brady, Sunday afternoon as she was working on Joe's Trail, this year's "President's Project" that she has undertaken with Co-President, Charlene Moug. The recent rains have made it difficult for the club to work steadily on their beautifying projects around town, so Carol was taking advantage of great weather Sunday. In fact, she was still at it that evening, as I spotted her doing her thing at the Railroad Park! Check out their...

  • History Of Juneteenth

    JUNETEENTH.Com|Jun 15, 2023

    Juneteenth is the oldest nationally celebrated commemoration of the ending of slavery in the United States. Dating back to 1865, it was on June 19th that the Union soldiers, led by Major General Gordon Granger, landed at Galveston, Texas with news that the war had ended and that the enslaved were now free. Note that this was two and a half years after President Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation – which had become official January 1, 1863. The Emancipation Proclamation had little impact on the Texans due to the minimal number of Union tro...

  • The Few Make It Difficult

    Nancy Royan, Librarian, Wedsworth Memorial Library|Jun 15, 2023

    Over the past year patrons have taken severe advantage of your library’s policies. New patrons have signed up for a Wedsworth Library card and destroyed the faith Library staff has developed in their patrons over the years concerning overdue and lost items. Indifferent, ignoring, and lack of response to communication attempts to recall and reclaim library materials has ruffled the feathers of library staff. As a result of patrons’ irresponsible attitudes towards library policies, library policies will be changed and enforced. As of July 1, 202...
