    God desires repentance, not well-intended promises
     “But what do you think? A man had two sons, and he came to the first and said, ‘Son, go work today in the vineyard.’ And he answered, ‘I will not’; but afterward he regretted it and went. The man came to the second and said the same thing; and he answered, ‘I will, sir’; but he did not go. Which of the two did the will of his father?” They said, “The first” (Matthew 21:28-31).

    “And the world is passing and the lust of it: but he who does the will of God abides forever” (1 John 2:17).

  • Missing cabinets returned

    Forty-year-old cabinets have been a point of contention for the LaFollette City Council this month.

    As the new library building was being renovated, former project manager Paul Begley tore the cabinets out. They had been part of the building since it was built in the 1970s, and weren’t in good shape, Begley said.

    Council member Hansford Hatmaker also felt the cabinets were in poor condition, and told Begley to dispose of them.

    “If somebody loaded them up, I wouldn’t take them,” Hatmaker said.

  • Paul Begley quits as project manager at new library

    Delays. Incompetence. Micromanagement. Contractors not receiving pay for services rendered. These are a few of the reasons Paul Begley gave for quitting as project manager at the new LaFollette library building.

    As project manager, Begley has overseen the renovation of the new library.

    “We would not be where we are at that library if it were not for Paul,” librarian Nancy Green said. “He has been fabulous.”
