Looking Back — Plywood modeling

In 1938 Harbor Plywood had a model pose with this magnificent 8 foot by 16 foot sheet of plywood. Remarkable enough for its size, its lack of knots is almost unbelievable and certainly unheard of today.

Faces of Faith — What we are celebrating this week

A little boy was sick on Palm Sunday one year and stayed home from church with his mother. His father returned from church holding a palm branch. The little boy was curious and asked, “Why do you have that palm branch, dad?” “Well you see son, when Jesus came into town, everyone waved palm branches to honor him, so we got palm branches at church today.”

Looking Back — Corner of 4th and Park

The building at 4th and Park streets in Aberdeen housed the Pay-N-Takit discount grocery in 1932. Later it became home to Russ Ellison’s Pontiac dealership, Caskey Industrial and is now home to Billy Bob’s Custom auto body and restoration shop. Except for the signage and replaced windows and paint, the building still looks pretty much the same.

Creation speaker at Harbor Calvary Chapel

It is often claimed that living in an age of modern science makes it intellectually impossible to accept the straight forward account of creation in the book of Genesis. Is this true or is this just what we are “supposed to believe”? What does the evidence actually indicate? Attend a free seminar this Sunday and Monday at Harbor Calvary Chapel, 108 South K Street, Aberdeen and hear some incredibly fascinating evidence for the scientific accuracy of the Genesis creation account and the reliability of the Bible.
