PIQUA — It’s been said that the most “worldly” people often make the best ministers, as they’ve “been there” and are best equipped to understand those trying to find their way in life.For Matt Klimis, this is the gospel truth.“My family was into drugs and alcohol and everything you can think of,” he said. “We had an experience with Jesus, I guess you could say, and He changed our lives. We all got saved and baptized together.”


Importance of other viewpoints

Last week, Mainstreet Piqua held their annual meeting at the Fort Piqua Plaza. It was a nice event, which had around forty people in attendance to hear about the good work of Mainstreet Piqua and to recognize the great people and businesses that help make our downtown and our community a great place to live.

Ya know ya make me want to (not) shout

My friend Rex prefaces all of his disquieting statements (which is to say, all of his statements) with the phrase, “I don’t mean this bad, but…” You’ve heard of pre-paid phone cards and pre-arranged marriages? This is sort of like a pre-confession; he’s asking for absolution in advance. If history is any indicator, when Rex begins, “I don’t mean this bad” you are about to hear a criticism that is equal parts hilarious and horrifying.
