Ever since the invention of microwaves, people have been “cooking” meals that Josh Caldwell says are not worthy of our palettes.

FBC to present ‘The Word Connection’ musical

Under the musical training and direction of Stacy Bridges, more than 40 children, representing an 8-year span in ages 4-12, will present, “The Word Connection.” The musical is written by Ami and Michael Shroyer.
“Spring in January — 2012” was the initial start of the choir rehearsals.
