Author Wallace Evenson announces the release of Adam to Christ

CAMBRIDGE, Minn. – In his book Adam to Christ: An Accurate Account of Old Testament Chronology: The Lineage of Jesus from the Beginning of Creation (published by AuthorHouse), author Wallace Evenson delves into the Bible and uncovers clues which he uses to propose a possible chronology of the major events of the Bible.

Evenson calls Adam to Christ “… the truth in dating the 60 generations from Adam to Christ.” He looks at lineages, clues about settings, and literal interpretations of the Bible to put dates to the most known – and most commonly questioned – events of the Bible.

An excerpt from Adam to Christ:

The first day is the beginning of Biblical dating. Six full creative days were to make phenomenal changes in this dark chaotic waste. Are the six days literal days? Can anyone know? This is where faith in the word has an advantage; we can believe that the six days are literal because He said it! If we can’t trust Genesis to be literally true and understandable, how can we trust the rest of the Bible? The literal meaning of a day is then strengthened by the next verse.

“So the evening and the morning were one day.” (Gen 1:5)

Evenson confidently refers to Adam to Christ as accurate and the truth because he relies so heavily on analyzing Scripture. As he says, “All Scripture is inspired by God.”

918studio to release Schaefer’s In Search of Lode September 1

LECLAIRE, IOWA — August 27, 2012 — In Search of Lode, a collection of poetry by Nancy Ann Schaefer, will be released by 918studio on September 1. The chapbook is Schaefer’s first collection of poetry. Cover and interior design for the collection was by Sarah Throne-Ploehn of Rivertown Creative.

Schaefer will read from her collection at a chapbook launch party and book signing to be held from 1-3 p.m. on Saturday, September 15, at the Midwest Writing Center. The event will be held in the third floor conference room of the Bucktown Center of the Arts at 225 East 2nd Street, Davenport. The public is invited and refreshments will be available.

Schaefer is a poet and Quad Cities area college professor, and teaches sociology and liberal arts at Western Illinois University’s new Riverfront campus. She was twice a finalist for the Max J. Molleston Award in the Mississippi Valley Poetry Contest, and is a member of the Quint City Poets and the Rockford Writers’ Guild. Her poems have appeared in a number of anthologies and journals including The Rockford Review, Numinous, Off Channel, Avocet, Outloud, In Other Words: Mérida, Struggle, and Women’s Voices Journal.

Local poet, Ellen Tsagaris, had early praise for Lode: “With In Search of Lode, Nancy Ann Schaefer shows us that poetry is indeed a universal language by offering verses in English, Spanish, and Dutch that cross the United States but traverse the world. She makes the common and simple sublime, and the sublime simple to understand with verse that is lyrical yet familiar, as if the lode were the depths of our communal heart

Milliken University English chair and award-winning poet, Stephen Frech, said Schaefer mines “mineral and personal depths…[to] recover ‘artifacts of concord […] tangible reminders of our conjoined / past.’ In Search of Lode beautifully reclaims the ironies of finding the pure and infinite in things “preserved like ants in amber—forever young.”

In Search of Lode is available for purchase at the Midwest Writing Center and on

Agriculture Secretary Vilsack to be LIVE on RFD TV and RURAL TV to Discuss Drought Assistance for America's Farmers and Ranchers PDF Print E-mail

WASHINGTON, August 15, 2012 - TOMORROW, August 16, U.S. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack will join RURAL TV and RFD-TV live at the Iowa State Fair to discuss the U.S. Department of Agriculture's continuing efforts to assist farmers and ranchers impacted by drought.

As part of continuing steps by the Obama Administration to assist livestock producers in response to the historic drought, USDA will utilize nearly $16 million in financial and technical assistance to immediately help crop and livestock producers in 19 states cope with the adverse impacts of the historic drought. In addition, USDA will initiate a transfer of $14 million in unobligated program funds into the Emergency Conservation Program. These funds can be used to assist in moving water to livestock in need, providing emergency forage for livestock, and rehabilitating lands severely impacted by the drought. Together these efforts should provide nearly $30 million to producers struggling with drought conditions.

Most recently, Secretary Vilsack signed disaster designations for an additional 44 counties in 12 states as primary natural disaster areas due to damage and losses caused by drought and excessive heat. Counties designated today are in the states of Arkansas, Iowa, Illinois, Kansas, Kentucky, Minnesota, Mississippi, Nebraska, New Mexico, Ohio, Oklahoma and South Dakota. During the 2012 crop year, USDA has designated 1,628 unduplicated counties across 33 states as disaster areas-1,496 due to drought-making all qualified farm operators in the areas eligible for low-interest emergency loans.

Secretary Vilsack will be taking questions from Twitter on USDA drought assistance efforts. Questions may be submitted in advance by using the hashtags #askUSDA and #Iowastatefair.
