Towel Gang Movement Swarms Cedarville
From no-name JV scrubs to respected varsity athletes, they bring energy to games

Just Sayin’ – Poverty and the Gospel
by Alex Hentschel
Hello. Nice to meet you.
I am a middle-class, white American woman. Growing up, I always had something to eat, presents on Christmas morning, sweaters for the winter, and now my parents have a house in the suburbs. I’m attending college, a monstrous expense, without worrying (too much) about how it will affect my future.
I have an American passport which allows me into most of the world’s countries if I can just afford the plane ticket to go. I am a native English ...

by Tim Miller
A destructive opening to the second half allowed Cedarville to blow by Alderson Broaddus on Thursday night, giving the Yellow Jackets a 72-56 win. Thursday night's G-MAC games pitted six teams within two games in the standings against each other, and the Yellow Jackets were beneficiaries of movement within the conference.

by Hunter Johnson
This week, I saw Steven Spielberg’s “Schindler’s List” for the very first time. The film is back in theaters for its 25th anniversary.
