David Trinko: Car could drive people to church

16 hours ago | | | Email

BLUFFTON — The folks at the Tri-County Family Assembly of God might think about placing a classified ad: “Completed restored 1998 Ford Mustang GT Convertible. Only used to drive people to church.”At least that’s the hope. The church will draw one name to give away the car Aug. 7, 2015, at a car show in Pandora. It’s not selling raffle tickets, just trying to save some souls over the next year by asking them to sit through one Sunday service.

This has made it hard to find a movie when I have just had a genre in mind and not been looking for a specific ti...
