Title: Paws to Read
When: 01/28/2013 3:30PM - 4:30PM
Location: Timbrook Library, 21039 Timberlake Road, Lynchburg, VA 24502
Description: Campbell County Public Library would like to invite children ages 5 and up to the “Paws to Read” program. Paws to Read is a very simple concept. Children read to “Roxy the Library Dog” in a positive nonthreatening and fun environment. Roxy listens and doesn’t tease, laugh or joke at the child. Many children have already benefited from the program and the opportunity to read to such a non-critical, caring listener!

Children can come to the Timbrook library every Monday from 3:30 ~ 4:30 and read to Roxy. This program is free of charge and is open to the public.

Registration is not required to attend Paws to Read.

  • Pentagon: 'So Help Me God' is Optional in Enlistment Oaths

    Digital Vision/Thinkstock(WASHINGTON) -- The Air Force opted on Wednesday to allow its members to omit the phrase "so help me God" when reciting their enlistment and appointment oaths.

    Recently, an atheist airman was denied re-enlistment after he refused to end his oath with the phrase. The airman was told that regulations required the oath include the phrase.

    The Pentagon General Counsel decided that such a phrase can't be mandatory in military oaths.

    "In response to a request from the Department of the Air Force, the Department of the Defense's General Counsel issued...

    Image Courtesy Red Bow RecordsJust like any 16-year-old girl, Joe Nichols' oldest daughter, Ashelyn, is totally embarrassed when her dad shows up at her high school.  What makes it even worse is that Joe often performs at acoustic charity events to help out around the school.  Some of Ashelyn's teenage girlfriends get a little star-struck when Joe shows up to sing, too.

    Joe says with a laugh, "Her friends start giggling and they huddle up, and she's like, 'Oh my God! It's my dad, y'all!  Stop talking like this!'  ...
