Robert Johnson  heard his calling

New Mormon president to oversee many south Bellevue congregations

Robert Johnson had heard the words spoken so vividly that he looked up because he thought somebody was in the room. He has heard smaller voices before. They have told him to do something, or go to someone’s house because they were in trouble - but nothing as distinct as the time he was called to be bishop for the Newport Ward of more than 350 people.

The other day, I thought of a new law that ought to be enacted.

A wagging tail beats good looks every time | Pat Cashman

Among the sights I have yet to see is that of a protester marching in front of the corporate headquarters of Raid, carrying a placard that says, “End the killing of spiders, fleas, houseflies, chiggers, mealworms and cockroaches!” As far as I know, there is no PETA-like group that speaks out in defense of stinkbugs, snout beetles and termites. It’s not only insects that receive a lack of support. Everybody loves a baby bunny; fewer love baby nematodes. Ugly creatures don’t have a lobby. So it’s no surprise that plenty of folks in Texas – especially ranchers – have little regard for buzzards.
