Rent-a-church spire plan to boost mobile phone coverage
Church spires could be used to boost mobile and broadband coverage in rural areas under an agreement between the UK government and the Church of England. The government has committed to achieving good-quality mobile connectivity across the UK by 2022. While the agreement encourages churches to sign up, they will still have to negotiate the usual planning process.


from Conciliar Post

I looked around me and realized that everything in Orthodoxy is like spokes of a wheel, connected to the center: Love. The love that our triune God displays within the Trinity and that we are called to participate in is the center of all Orthodox teaching.

Spokane County property taxes to rise significantly in 2018
Spokane County property tax bills for 2018 will be on average 10 percent higher because of the measure, known as the second state school levy, approved by the state Legislature and Gov. Jay Inslee last year. The levy is meant to address the Washington Supreme Court’s McCleary decision, which ordered the state to fully fund public schools. The levy raises the state property tax levy rate to $2.70 per $1,000 of assessed home value – an 81 cent increase over last year’s rate of $1.89.
