Are you a movie buff? If so, can you believe that John Wayne would be 100 years old this year? Doesn't seem possible does it? I still love John Wayne movies. Call them simplistic or him only an average actor, but one thing you knew, in his movies the "good guy" was going to win. Can you even imagine "The Duke" trying to "get in touch" with his feelings ala Tom Cruise? Say what you will but John Wayne confidently portrayed someone who knew exactly who he was and took both the credit and the lumps for that. And isn't that what a "man of action" is supposed to do? No wonder he is known as the "quintessential American."

They're coming out of the woodwork. It's amazing what a winning team can do to boost the morale of a city and its followers. How many of you will stay up late tonight watching the Cavs host San Antonio in game No. 3 of their best-of-seven series? In a town where its last professional championship came in 1964 by the Browns who left the city and are now playing in Baltimore we'll take anything.

Holly Bauer has done what millions of cooks and bakers wish they could do: She has impressed Emeril Lagasse. When Bauer, a resident of rural Norwalk, saw information about Emeril's National Cheese Competition posted online, she knew she had to do something to stand out. Drawing on her eight years of cheesecake-making experience, she concocted her original Peach Flamb Cheesecake. She thinks the part of the recipe that calls for the peach brandy to be ignited caught Emeril's eye.

I love little creeks. When I was a kid roaming the hills and valleys of southern Ohio it was routine to gather up some young friends on a summer morning and head for a handy creek. Most were small, just 6 to 10 feet wide or so and inches deep with pools here and there, and we'd splash up and down their length wearing old tennis shoes just looking for snakes, frogs, turtles and muskrats.

The month of May is always packed with a bunch of activities. Weddings, graduations, and other end of the school year celebrations keep us running from one thing to another. So the month of June brings a welcome relief from some of the busyness. June also signals the beginning of vacation season. It's always nice to take some time to get away from home and spend some time relaxing with family or friends. Perhaps it's an opportunity to travel to a far away destination and experience the culture of a foreign land. Maybe we get a chance to visit an important historic site throughout our great country. It could just be a one day trip up to Cedar Point or Lake Erie. Sometimes just a couple of days spent at home, without the schedules of work or school, can be the very best vacation we can have. Whatever it is, a vacation provides a much needed opportunity to recharge and reload. It reminds us that there is more to life than the hectic schedules of everyday life. We might get the chance to reconnect with our loved ones and catch up on what's been going on. It could provide the opportunity to read a great book we've had sitting on the shelf for a long time. No matter what we do or where we go, we all recognize the need for a vacation every now and then. There is, however, one area of our lives that we should never take a vacation from: our relationship with God. No matter where we go or what we do, God is always there with us. At work, home, school, or vacation, God loves us so much and cares for us so greatly that he will never abandon us. Sometimes this fact is hard to accept or understand. We see a loved one struggle with medical problems and we wonder where God is. We lose our job and can't pay our bills and think God has abandoned us. We pray and pray for peace in our world but God seems to ignore our prayers. Sometimes it seems that God has taken a vacation from us, but Jesus assures us that the Father always hears and answers our prayers. Just as a loving parent always listens and tries to do the best for his child, God is the perfect parent who always listens to us and provides us with what we need. Sometimes we are not perfect children. Sometimes we do not listen to what God is trying to tell us. Sometimes we do not want to hear his voice because we know he is going to tell us something that will be hard for us to hear. No matter what the circumstances may be, we must have faith that God will never leave us alone. He will never take a vacation from his children.

It is hard to image two places more different than Millersburg, Ohio and Fuling, China. Millersburg, in the heart of Ohio's Amish Country, has a population of a little more than 3,000 people, 95 percent of whom are white. Fuling, located in the Chongqing province, is considered a "small town" of 300,000 people. Yet Vermilion resident Nicole Weigand has called them both home.
