    T. ALBANS (AP) - It looks like Jesus has made it for Christmas after all. Days after a flurry of news reports on the Nativity scene here that lacked a representation of Jesus, town officials have put the infant in the manger. St. Albans Mayor Dick Callaway said he got e-mails from as far away as South Korea about the display, which is one of 350 light exhibits as part of the town's annual Festival of Lights. The manger scene at the festival had included shepherds, camels and a guiding star, but no Jesus, Mary or Joseph. Now, though, Jesus...

    Riley Gunnoe says business is booming at his tool store in St. Albans. He says it's because of a sign outside. Gunnoe told me he didn't know what was going to happen when he put this phrase on it, "If you are for Obama's policies, please keep your dumba$$ out of this store." Gunnoe says he didn't know what was going to happen when he put the sign up. "I didn't care. But it really has doubled my business since I put it up so I'm glad I did now!" Some people in the community say it makes them question...

    Historians claim to have finally located the site of King Arthur’s Round Table – and believe it could have seated 1,000 people. Researchers exploring the legend of Britain’s most famous Knight believe his stronghold of Camelot was built on the site of a recently discovered Roman amphitheatre in Chester. Legend has it that his Knights would gather before battle at a round table where they would receive instructions from their King. But rather than it being a piece of furniture, historians believe it would have been a vast wood and stone structure which would have allowed more than 1,000 of...

    In a recent write-up of Gore's visit to the Cannes Film Festival to promote his new film on global warming, which premiered Wednesday in Los Angeles, Huffington hailed the "new Gore" as the "hottest star in town," beating out Bruce Willis and Tom Hanks. Gore told Huffington that this was his second trip to Cannes. "The first was when I was 15 years old and came here for the summer to study the existentialists - Sartre, Camus. ... We were not allowed to speak anything but French!" This, gushed Huffington, "may explain his pitch-perfect French accent." Perhaps. Though according to...

    Evangelicals to shun Bishop of St Albans Number: 5725 Date: July 8, Evangelical clergy are making plans to keep the Bishop of St Albans out of their parishes following last Friday’s controversial installation of Jeffrey John as Dean of St Albans. The service to install Dr John last Thursday took place with only minor protests outside but many evangelical clergy boycotted the service. The Bishop of St Albans, Christopher Herbert remained defiant, declaring in his sermon that the reality of the call to Christian service is ‘confused’. Moses was a murder, he pointed out, and St Paul a religious thug...

    Why I am Leaving the Episcopal Church I am forty-five years old and for thirty-four of those years I have been an active participant in the Episcopal Church. I was baptized, confirmed, married, ordained a deacon, and ordained a priest in the Episcopal Church. It has served to shape and form me spiritually and it has taught me tremendous aspects into the worship of Almighty God. The Church has been a place of stability and refuge, although it has always been in need of reform.  But recent actions of the Episcopal Church have taken spiritual depravi­ty to new depth for the modern...
