Pope Benedict Gives up Throne for Lent
Earlier this week Pope Benedict XVI Announced that he was going to retire from the Papacy effective at the end of the month. this move has shocked not only the faithful, but the Protestant and Jewish communities of faith as well.

It least he lasted longer than Pope John Paul I did!
Publisher Says "Nuts" to Peanuts
After giving up talking about politics for Lent last year, Holabird Advocate Publisher, Jerry Hinkle has decided to really challenge himself, so he's giving up peanut butter. Before making it public, he tested the news on some people, most of whom didn't think it was that big of a deal.

To be on the safe side, he will try to avoid peanuts altogether. Jerry had thought of including chocolate in this year's Lent offering, but with tomorrow coming up, that would be too hard. It has also been suggested that Jerry give up Facebook. He had considered that, but realized too many people rely on his wisdom and humor to get through their day.
