  • Girl Scout Troops appreciate help

    Junior Girl Scout Troop 557 and Brownie Girl Scout Troop 116 would like to send out a heartfelt thank you to Bethlehem Lutheran Church.  When our local Girl Scout organization lost its venue to host the annual Brownie Sleepover, Bethlehem Lutheran graciously opened its doors. This church has always provided meeting space to many groups in town, including our troop’s bimonthly meetings.
    The sleepover was a great success! The church’s spacious kitchen and open layout enhanced many hours of fun including; cooking, crafts, scavenger hunt, singing and dancing.  Everyone left a little tired, but very happy.
    Thanks again for being such a great example of what community is all about!

  • Volunteers needed

  • LOS ANGELES — The new incarnation of Death Row Records does not have the rights to sell Dr. Dre’s iconic rap album “The Chronic” digitally, a federal judge ruled Tuesday.
    The ruling by U.S. District Judge Christina Snyder ruling states that the rapper and producer has received far less money than he is due from online sales of the 1992 album, which also helped launch the career of Snoop Dogg.
    The ruling does not call for a halt of digital sales of Dre’s music, but entitles him to receive 100 percent of the proceeds of online sales, his attorney, Howard King, told The Associated Press.
