Written by Hillsboro Free Press Tuesday, 09 April 2013 12:46We applaud the Marion County Sheriff’s Office as it honors the men and women who serve as public safety dispatchers during National Public Safety Telecommunications Week, April 14-20. The week is dedicated to public safety telecommunicators who aid in providing 9-1-1 assistance to citizens everywhere.
The term “9-1-1” is often associated with rapid emergency response, poise under pressure, aid and compassion in times of distress and critical decision-making within seconds. Many people...
Written by Joel Klaassen Tuesday, 09 April 2013 12:48How many emails do you have in your inbox? I have 31,665 since November 2010, plus almost 20,000 sent emails. And these are the ones I have kept. I have deleted probably eight times that many along the way.
So, that means I get roughly 30 emails per day that are useful and are regarding business or of a personal nature.
If you wonder why I keep that many, it’s because it’s easier to keep them than sort them and delete them. It takes enough time as it is to just keep up with what they are about and answer them in some fashion.

The Texas prophetess Cindy Jacobs had a revelation that Interstate 35 is referenced in Isaiah 35:8, which states, “And a highway shall be there, and it shall be called the Holy Way: the unclean shall not pass over it, and fools shall not err therein.”
This ecstatic utterance by Mrs. Jacobs might have gone unnoticed. Her prophesies for New Jersey and New Zealand were so wrong they could be easily ignored. But after Pat Robertson...

Written by Rep. Bob Brookens Tuesday, 01 May 2012 15:07Legislators landed back in Topeka Wednesday, April 25, and we’re now in the throes of the veto session, which will end by May 11.
While few things have happened, there was one huge announcement: On Thursday, the joint conference committee on taxation announced a “deal” on its income tax proposals.
Of the six members on the conference committee, four agree on the plan they knocked out, but one representative and one senator disagree with it and will not sign the conference committee’s report, once typed up.
Each house can still approve the agreement and send it to the governor by a floor vote adopting the report, despite the two who won’t sign the agreement. We hope to receive all the facts by Tuesday (May 2), but here are...
