Initially designed for seniors, the presentation has been expanded and soon county employees will receive the training.

Ward began with a story of two ninjas and a ninja master.

The writer of Hebrews, in speaking of our faith, connects our hope and faith to the immutability of God. It is in His nature and character that one finds the surety for his belief.

In the Scriptures, one discovers truth and is challenged to holy living. The fruit of holy living is a life blessed by the promises of God, which include living eternally with God. In Hebrews 6:19 we read, “This hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and steadfast…(NKJV).

Reporter's Notebook: How to get an article into the Leader

December 1, 2015

By Peter Day
Senior Reporter

Some people ask me how they can get news of their organization into the Leader. Well, the answer is that it's not very difficult.

As the Leader's main reporter it's my job to cover meetings such as LVEDA, the LV-JV MAC and School Board. You'll also may see me around town covering anything from bake sales to mountain lions climbing 35-foot tall power poles. But as small a town as ours is, there always more events and information that deserves to get into our town's newspaper.
