Author debunks and negates the popular theory of evolution
The Myth About Evolution by John Constantine Capleton is an engrossing read, giving a rational explanation of the universes origin.
At an early age, Capleton already had a fascination with creation and evolution. Through this book, he offers a scientific viewpoint on why God, an intelligent and omnipotent creator, is real. He believes that only God has the attributes to be the source of our existence. Further, he elaborates why the universe was planned and executed to manifest itself as an ordered system.
He also presents a detailed exploration on whether we have a real purpose here or not. In analyzing these, he attempts to determine which best fits how the world manifests itself and the possible source of its existence. He finds that there is nothing random about the order that people see and experience. He believes that order and randomness are mutually exclusive. The laws that control the material world are fixed and never change. Together, these generate universal order. These laws, he says, work to maintain harmony in the universe.
Well written and researched, The Myth About Evolution is recommended to skeptics, agnostics, and atheists alike. Capletons studies, observations, and experiences debunk the theory of evolution and will enlighten readers that there is indeed a higher power that guides us to maintain a spiritual order.
Author John Constantine Capleton was born in Oracabessa, a small town on the north coast of Jamaica. A retired engineer, Capleton had several hobbies and would switch from one to the other depending on his mood at any point in time. His hobbies included drawing, from an early age, which led to oil painting. He also made model cars, boats, and planes as a teenager. He also became interested in electronics, music, and woodworking. He now lives in Arizona with his wife. They have three daughters.

Ten Hounds: A Personal Journal, a new book by Judge G. Darrell Russell, Jr., has been released by Dorrance Publishing Co., Inc.
Lacrosse has been a special sport in Baltimore and Maryland since the turn of the twentieth century. It flourished as an amateur sport in Baltimore in a manner unrivaled in the United States, except perhaps on Long Island and in upper state New York. Most of the colleges and universities in Maryland flourished in their lacrosse programs, primarily due to the presence of the best high school league in the US, namely, the MIAA (Maryland Independent Athletic Association). Schools like Navy, Maryland, Towson, Baltimore University, UMBC, and especially Johns Hopkins all produced strong nationally ranked lacrosse teams and many US championships. Amidst all these strong programs, Loyola College (now Loyola University Maryland) was floundering in mediocrity until the mid-1970s. Coach Darrell Russell convinced the Loyola administration to indulge the lacrosse program with scholarships and financial attention. A steady rise to the top began until Loyola won the NCAA Division-I national championship in 2012. This is the story of that journey, filled with entertaining anecdotes along the way.
About the Author

He later served as the first commissioner of the MILL, which became the NLL (National Lacrosse League). He became the general manager of the Baltimore Thunder of the MILL (Major Indoor Lacrosse League). Many of his players were Loyola College alums. He had a brief dance with stardom on the lacrosse field as an undergraduate at Loyola, wherein he earned a lifelong nickname of “Diamond.” He received his law degree from the University of Baltimore and his masters of liberal arts from Towson University. Judge Russell has four adult children, whom he coached in youth lacrosse. He lives in Towson, Maryland.

Pompey uses the wisdom of the Scriptures, reflective drawing/journaling, and cooking, so that individual families can begin to heal from traumatic experiences.

Nothing brings Shyreece greater joy than watching God work in the lives of Believers living in a fruitful relationship with Christ Jesus.

Currently, residing in Woodland, California, she loves the community she has found there, but Michiana will always be her home.
