The usual deadline to end the session is when the per-diem payment for expenses by legislators runs out – this year on May 1. However, the session bogged down on…Continue

On this day let us give our profound thanks to the Worthy PSD Michael Gaspers, whose term of service as our Worth State Deputy ended July 1.

The Supreme Court of the greatest Country on earth has deliberated a radical decision declaring marriage between one man and one woman as unconstitutional in our land, therefore allowing so called 'gay marriage' in all States now.

We need to pray for our Country, our Holy Catholic Church and pray for those who are being misled by the culture of…Continue
