Several folks from Buffalo found themselves caught in the midst of a political crisis in Honduras this week, when a mission trip overlapped a military coup in the South American country.

Williams is the local Head Start teacher, Dale Osteen the former pastor at First Baptist, and Elaine a former teacher at BISD.   More...

With the Dog Days of summer -- traditionally drier July and August -- still to come, there is definitely cause for serious concern.   More...

Last week-end my family had a reunion. We met cousins for the first time, saw aunts and uncles who are well seasoned now, and enjoyed little ones who represent our future. My mother's side of the family is originally Clan Craig from Lanarkshire, Scotland. Our history is interesting, and a few characters are colorful.
