Philadelphia aldermen ultimately cut taxes, but not without a struggle with the big spenders.
  • Upon the memory and truthfulness of Christine Blasey Ford hangs the Supreme Court nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh, his reputation, and possibly his career on the nation’s second highest court.

  • GETTING THE MESSAGE/Exodus 15:1-21

Revelation chapter 15 tells us it will be sung by the Redeemed of God (in Christ) after this world.

  • The senior class of Arlington held a meeting and elected new officers for the following year; President, Grover Breazeale; Vice President, John W. Hill; Secretary and Treasurer, Maggie A. Stuart; and Sponsor, Miss Rita Martin.
