I like prayer. I often pray, at least once a day, likely more. Our family prays each day at dinner, as we have for generations.

The Huskies were challenged once again on Friday night, but this time they came away with a hard-fought 32-31 victory over Basha.

I know who’s ultimately at fault for the government shutdown. It isn’t the Democrats. It isn’t the Republicans.
