The windows may have been shattered, but not the spirit at Mustard Seed Café.
In the early hours of Wednesday, May 29th, there was a break-in at Bluffton’s newest restaurant which had just opened on March 22nd. There was extensive damage to the kitchen, including the food storage area. It took staff four days to clean up the debris, wash all the dishes and cookware, and restock the pantry.
On behalf of the Bluffton Schools Board of Education and the levy committee, I would like to thank you for your support of our renewal on Tuesday, May 7. We will continue to spend these permanent improvement dollars wisely and will continue to show the community where this money is spent each year.

On Friday June 21, 2013, the American Cancer Society will be holding its annual

money for his local American Cancer Society unit - to a movement to eliminate
cancer that now takes place in more than 5,200 communities in the United States
and in 20 other countries around the world.

In this article by Huffington Post blogger Eleanor Goldberg, she gives some staggering statistics about human sex trafficking during the Super Bowl.
My question is this: Who are the men who are doing the raping? If there were 10,000 women hired to be raped in 2010 and one 12 year old was forced to be raped 20-50 times in one night, that's a lot of men paying (or not) to commit rape.
