I don’t know if we’ve said this on the website already, but my cousin Sam and his family (Rachel, Anna & Gracen) are coming to Seward. Sam accepted a call to be the 6th grade home room and social studies teacher at St. John. They were up this week to look for a house. I don’t […]

Well, it turns out that Kristi hadn’t seen the new Wal*marts or that the old Wal*marts was slowly turning into a church.

I hear your siren song.

The eastbound light at 6th & Seward was red instead of green this morning, so I turned south. Walking across the street brought me that much closer to the one thing that could negate my healthy walking.  I was unable to resist looking back at it.  Tomorrow I might not be so strong….
