    Top Republicans have drawn their line in the sand. They stand behind Judge Brett Kavanaugh and hope he’s confirmed this weekend. The Kavanaugh nomination has been engulfed in chaos and downright nastiness, as sexual misconduct allegations, all of which are without evidence or corroborating witnesses, were hurled at the judge at the last minute. There’s been a weeklong delay in the final vote to ensure the bureau could review these allegations. At a press conference, Senate Majority Mitch McConnell said that the recent release of the FBI report did not corroborate any of the sexual misconduct allegations against Judge Brett...

    NEZPERCE, Idaho -- Coming up Sunday, the long-standing rivalry between Boise State and the University of Idaho will be renewed on a little-known battlefield in northern Idaho.

    I just came from a funeral service for an aunt of mine who was a staunch Catholic. I came out of that religion about 25 years ago after reading for myself what the Bible had to say. My question surrounds the actuality of salvation for all the millions who still practice Mary worship and so forth. Knowing that one cannot serve two masters, I wonder at how it is possible that the aforementioned can really experience Christ in a saving way, while they continue to believe that the church of Rome is solely responsible for their eternal welfare.

    For education and discussion only. Not for commercial use.A two-year-old boy slipped out of his mother's locked motel room, climbed into the family car and accidentally drove it through a door and window and into the room, authorities said. The child, Rex Davis, was not injured and no-one else was hurt in the accident yesterday morning. Hillsborough County Sheriff's office said Rex's mother, Ginna Hopkins, was taking a shower when the boy got out. "It's almost unbelievable that a two-year-old could have done that," Lieutenant Rod Reder said. One detective dubbed him "Little Houdini." Hopkins had left the unlocked car...
