The 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago made the ruling Thursday in a lawsuit which argued that the motto propagates a religious view that some oppose. The Lower Court tossed the suit, citing it was Not a threat, and described the phrase as a “Historical Reminder” of the Nation’s Heritage. http://www.klove.com/news/2018/06/04/Judge-In-God-We-Trust-On-Money-Isn-t-Religion-Endorsement/ Jack Phillips scored a Major Religious Freedom Victory—for himself, as ruling fails to resolve legal debate over the conscience rights of conservative Christians. In the Biggest Religious Liberty Case of the Year, the US Supreme Court sided 7–2 against a State Commission that unfairly singled out the Christian baker. https://www.christianitytoday.com/news/2018/june/jack-phillips-masterpiece-cakeshop-wins-supreme-court-free-.html If you’re looking for a fun, and inexpensive, outing with the kids this summer, Regal Entertainment Group’s Summer Movie Express might do the trick.  During the nine-week film festival, select Regal Cinema theaters will show $1 family-friendly movies.

Nourishing Hope, a World Leading Authority on Nutrition and Dietary Intervention for the Healing of Autism, just announced that a recent study proves that Nutrition and Dietary Intervention Do, in fact, significantly Reduce the symptoms and behaviors associated with individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder.

That translates to 10 to 16 named storms, with winds at or above 39 miles per hour. Of these, five to nine could become hurricanes. Flooding is the most serious risk during hurricanes and other major storms. In coastal areas, high tides and storm surge are factors in flooding risks, and as we’ve seen lately, the Mid-Atlantic areas that are often hit by the recoil of these storms. http://www.klove.com/news/2018/06/04/Forecasters-Predict-Busy-Hurricane-Season-podcast-/   Luke Terry has been inspiring friends and family his entire young life. The 16-year-old lifelong Braves fan, on Monday night, got the opportunity to announce Atlanta’s first-round draft pick: Florida high school pitcher Carter Stewart. “It was unbelievable to stand up there and get applause from everybody,” Terry said with a big smile. Terry recently finished his freshman year at Cornersville High School, where he played catcher and helped his baseball team to a 17-12 record this past season. But, you see, what makes Terry Different from just any Other Catcher, is that Terry has Only One Arm! Terry had his right arm amputated when he was only 19 months old after he contracted E. coli. That hasn’t prevented him from playing ball, though… Yes, with just One Arm. https://www.mlb.com/cut4/luke-terry-the-high-school-catcher-with-one-arm-will-announce-braves-first-draft-pick/c-279613898     TRAFFIC… Business 40 will close between Peters Creek Parkway and Cloverdale Avenue from Friday to Sunday, so that workers can install the girders that will support the parkway when the widened version spans Business 40 sometime later this year. http://www.journalnow.com/news/local/business-closing-for-work-to-build–lane-bridge-at/article_030aae37-c9f4-53d6-8177-93ab6f7219e1.html   Your WBFJ Family Station Weather Forecast Today: Sunny… High 83 Tonight: Clear… Low 60 Wednesday: Sunny… High 83
