Street-level church bell stolen
The parish St. Mary Help of Christians, is the neighbor of my own. The 650 pound bell was cast for the old church in 1888, moved into the new, and then recently removed to be part of a commons.
The scrap value is about $1,000. A replacement could could $6,000 to $10,000 if they chose to replace it.

What is Catholic Advocate?
I received a letter from Senator Sam Brownback (R-KS), introducing me to Deal Hudson who has founded Catholic Advocate. It is a strange solicitation because it asks me to mail a contribution to a post office box on behalf of this organization that I have never heard of.
Just google "Deal Hudson" and you will find a lot of information and most of it negative. He was well-known for his access to the Bush White House. His web presence is Inside Catholic
