Many people preparing for job interviews need a little extra help when it comes to finding the right clothes to wear and Thursday, the e-boutique on the Industrial Technology campus of Seward County Community College officially opened to help with just that. 

“It feels like a positive commitment, we're now going to finally be able to see this idea being pulled off and be part of the change we want to see,” SCCC student Mariana Romero said. “We really hope this has a positive takeoff and we can reach people in the area. Right now, we're just hoping for the best and we're doing to do what we can to get the word out about this and do everything we can.”

“It makes me feel really proud since we put in all of this work, and I think it's great this will be open to help people,” fellow SCCC student Israel Banuelos said. “We also have to thank the welding department for putting our clothing racks together, that helped us greatly as far as having things organized, it really feels like a store now. We've made so much progress with this, and we couldn't be happier with how everything looks.”

The lady Redskins fell behind early after Haskell started with four runs in the top of the first, but the Lady Redskins responded with four in the bottom of the inning.

The two traded two runs in the second, and the Lady Redskins didn’t take a lead until the fifth inning when they took a 12-10 lead.

Word of assurance



Easter is a holiday that believers can celebrate all year long. The resurrection is considered a sign from God that his Son’s sacrifice at Calvary was accepted, and it provides confidence that all the words Jesus spoke were true. 

In our roles as nurse and pastor, my wife and I have been privileged to be with people at the time of their passing. In our society, though, many are removed from the process of dying. The phrases uttered by Jesus from the cross provide a model for dying well. This second Word from the Cross lends special encouragement for the moment of death. Though none of us knows when we will take our last breath, the dying words of Jesus can be applied to questions even now: have we worked hard enough or been good enough, and where will we spend eternity? 

The crucifixion is recorded in Luke 23, John 19, Mark 15, and Matthew 27. As we continue this study of Words from the Cross, we move to phrases that are recorded only in the Gospel of Luke. Jesus’ mother Mary was present at the crucifixion, and it’s thought that Luke may have spoken with her to gain intimate details of Jesus’ birth as well. Last week’s word was forgiveness; this week it is assurance. 

The setting is three crosses in a public place near Jerusalem, with Jesus hanging between two criminals facing execution for their crimes. Before moving to Jesus’ words, let’s consider those men on either side. Often called thieves, they were likely armed robbers, with the Greek word indicating they were those who did evil works. Their presence fulfilled a prophecy from Isaiah 53:12 that the savior would be “numbered with the transgressors”.
