Just as there are stereotypes about librarians, stevedores and men who wear pencil-thin moustaches, so there are stereotypes about quilters. They are, the cliche goes, old, gray-haired ladies who sit stitching calico scraps into traditional designs.

Night Shift Sour Tea

I've never really had the best of luck with Night Shift's beers. This fairly new brewing outfit's attempts on extant styles tend towards being unspectacular, and their ostensibly-innovative ideas for new styles are often lists of interesting ingredients that fail to come together in a way that works.

In my work as pastor and hospital chaplain I'm constantly asked, "How can God allow such suffering in the world?" Faithful Christians die of cancer and heart disease; the military-industrial complex stages war-for-profit escapades in places such as Vietnam and Iraq, and thousands of U.S. service people are maimed or killed as a result; ISIS Sunni Muslims murder members of other faiths, and even other Muslims; bankers and hedge fund managers crash the economy, and while millions of Americans lose their jobs and homes as a result, the people responsible for the disaster enjoy their golden parachutes and never go to jail.

Who would guess that just a few months later, the venerable Statton name would be back in the furniture-making business? Bounce back it did during the winter of 2009 when Eben Conner, who owns a custom woodworking company called The Master's Woodshop, struck a deal with former Statton president Hunt Hardinge to begin production again.
