Freed pastor prays with Trump

in

WASHINGTON (AP) — Freed American pastor Andrew Brunson fell to one knee in the Oval Office and placed his hand on President Donald Trump’s shoulder in prayer on Saturday, asking God to provide the president “supernatural wisdom to accomplish all the plans you have for this country and for him.”

Temporary secretary of state treated as incumbent

in

BATON ROUGE (AP) — Louisiana’s interim secretary of state has been in the job fewer than six months, not elected to the position and only ascending to it because of a scandal. Still, Kyle Ardoin is running as an incumbent.
That campaign decision has put a target on Ardoin’s back from the other contenders seeking the job as Louisiana’s chief elections official on the Nov. 6 ballot. It’s also given Ardoin the office’s baggage, including controversies that aren’t helpful to his message.

Carver’s death triggers Mister Twister memories

Harris, Glynn.jpg

Dressed in bib overalls, shock of gray hair askew, he saunters into Toledo Town mega-shop near the banks of massive Toledo Bend Lake. He takes a seat at a table in the restaurant, and the waitress brings him a plate of bacon and eggs.
At first glance, you’d think he was just a local fellow who has spent the last hour in his garden and stops by for breakfast.

in
Moore, Byron 2016.jpg

Question: Let me be frank. One of the reasons I have not yet done a financial plan is that I have not found a planner that didn’t just remind me of a salesman. I don’t want a salesman. I don’t want to be sold. I want advice. Is that so hard to find?

Halbrook, Andy 2016.jpg

The investment world recently observed a milestone: the longest bull market in history. But what does this mean to you, as an individual investor?
