"They have 'flushable' everything now," Columbia City Wastewater Superintendent Mike Cook said. "Sure, they'll make it through your toilet, but when they get to our system, it's creating all kinds of problems. They'll flush out of your home, go right into our pumps, and bind them up."

Making magic

September 27, 2013

Jim Barron, from Christian radio station WBCL (90.3), blended humor, illusion and ministry Wednesday night at Trinity Presbyterian’s Pioneer Club meeting.

He showed children tricks of all kinds.

He had solid metal hoops that appeared to hook together and come back apart at his will, and ropes that came apart to make more ropes, but then seemingly also looped into one rope. He also lit a dollar on fire, destroying it, then made it reappear inside a lemon.

Pictured is Jasmine Petras (left), 9, assisting Barron.
