May 31, 2014

by Nancy Pricer, staff writer

Church bulletins are intended to be good, serious and informative.

And I doubt the Devil made them do it.

Rainy days and Mondays don’t always get me down

May 17, 2014

What could have been an awful start to a rainy Monday ended up with me smiling all the way to work.

For the first time in my life, I ran out of gas.

I knew I was pushing it.

I had been counting the miles down since my low fuel light came on, and I was off by six miles.

English 101

May 17, 2014

Lately, I’ve been noticing a trend of mispronouncing a particular word in an old cliche phrase.

The phrase is “the jig is up.”

A jig is a lively dance. In Elizabethan times, the phrase “the jig is up” was used as a way to say that a trick or game is over or a practical joke has been exposed.
