OIL ACTIVITY -- It’s nice to see some oil drilling rigs pop up here and there in the Lee County area.

The latest one to spud in is on the Lehmann property in the Ledbetter area.

Does God want everybody to be rich?

There are preachers on television who claim this is what the Bible teaches.

Actually, quite a number of televangelists preach what’s referred to as “the prosperity doctrine” --or the health and wealth doctrine.

HIT-AND-RUN -- A 911 call came in shortly after 9 am Monday from a woman motorist whose car had been sideswiped at the railroad tracks by an 18-wheeler.

The big rig had left the scene, possibly because the trucker didn’t even know he had sideswiped a vehicle.
