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.
