    The Patriots took different approaches as the National Anthem played on Sunday at Gillette Stadium. Many, including safety and captain Devin McCourty, took a knee. Others stood and linked arms. A league source has told CSN's Gary Tanguay that every Patriots player will stand for the anthem prior to Sunday's game against the Carolina Panthers. Patriots captain Devin McCourty explained that Saturday was an emotional day for him and his teammates as they tried to determine how best to react to Trump's comments, which referred to players kneeling during the anthem as "sons of bitches" who should lose their jobs....

As my travel schedule is heavy, I am republishing some articles about life in Jesus’ day. I hope you will enjoy reading (or re-reading) them as much as I did.The Jews of Galilee, where Jesus grew up, were essentially a rural people. The great majority lived in the many small towns and villages scattered throughout the countryside. They worked the land, tended their flocks, and plied their trades, seldom venturing more than a day’s...

  • Wal-Mart fliers shouldn't have carried Northbrook seal (not authorized by the village)

    Local officials say fliers with the picture of the Northbrook sign circulated recently to garner support for the controversial Wal-Mart project were not authorized by the village. The material sent to some residents over the last week, sparked questions from some people. "It does create confusion," Steven Elrod, the village's attorney, said at a Oct. 23 plan commission meeting. "Village of Northbrook is not responsible nor does it endorse this particular piece of literature."

    If these arent the end times, I fear what those might look like. The countrys pioneering alt-weekly, New York Citys Village Voice, has experienced sharp decreases in ad revenue, circulation and staff in recent years. As the paper continues efforts to keep its head above water, a turnoverfilled May has perhaps sounded the papers figurative demise, suggesting that its literal end may come sooner than later. On May 9, the Voices parent company, Voice Media Group, informed editors of its plan to restructure the paper, which involved further staff cuts. Upon hearing the plans, Editor in Chief Will Bourne and...

    I'm always amazed at the liberal mind's ability to hold mutually exclusive thoughts. I've long ago discovered that consistency isn't the hallmark of the liberal mind; it's emotion. I was reminded of this yesterday when Jennifer Aniston was quoted as saying that women don't need men anymore. Women are realizing more and more that you dont have to settle, they dont have to fiddle with a man to have that child, said Aniston. They are realizing if its that time in their life and they want this part they can do it with or without that. I don't mean to...

    BERLIN (AFP) A cash-strapped village in eastern Germany has put its many potholes up for sale in a novel effort to finance the repair of its crumbling roads, the mayor said on Wednesday. People can buy a hole in Niederzimmern near Leipzig for 50 euros (68 dollars). In return the authorities will repair it -- and put a personal message on top, Christoph Schmidt-Rose told local radio station MDR. "It's about using a funny idea to find people prepared to help us sort out our roads" who can then "sort of feel like they own the hole in the...

Water flows easier now underneath the culverts between irrigation canals that have increased water flow to local farmers crops. "Building these two road culverts will greatly increase the transportation infrastructure of the village,"...

We cleared a route; the ISF [Iraqi security forces] came behind us and cleared the village, Belle stated. Now weve started to establish security around the whole area. All we do is just...
