RELIGION NEWS: And the 'Nones' have it -- Weekly Religion News with a new survey that shows 19 percent of Americans are "Nones," "Divine Alignment" by SQuire Rushnell and more. GHNS
ROBERT MANN: The existence of evil - While the existence of evil may be self-evident to many, it has long fallen into disfavor among circles of scholars and philosophers. There is a trickle-down effect to society at large of this attitude that tends to blur and even condemn Christian values. By Robert Mann, GHNS.
MARKETTA GREGORY: The power of hospitality - It started with just a simple picture on Pinterest. A white sheet hung over the garage door and popcorn sat in brown lunch bags that had been folded over at the top. Somewhere, out of sight, was a movie projector and an adoring audience. By Marketta Gregory, GHNS.
FAMILY MATTERS: Teach your teenager to respect you - How would you deal with mouthy kids? My younger ones see my older kids being rude to each other, and sometimes to me and my husband. Even when my older ones get in trouble, the younger ones copy them. By Diana Boggia, Canton, Ohio.
END ROT: Blame dry soil for blossom end rot - When Dennis James examined his 8-foot-tall tomato plants, he discovered a large black spot on the bottom of an unripe Roma tomato. His Monroeville, Pa., garden has been thriving and his heart sank, thinking he was looking at late blight. By Doug Oster, Scripps.
HOBBIES: Jazzed-up dish towels for your kitchen - Give plain kitchen towels some DIY flavor with image-transfer techniques that range from high-tech to refreshingly simple. All you need to get started is a plain dish towel. By Cathie Filian, Scripps.
RECIPE: Real creamed potatoes -- Years later, I marshaled enough courage to try real, creamed, unmashed red potatoes. These are from New England, and they were on the right side in the war. They’re not just milk splashed onto boiled spuds. They’re closer to our well-liked Midwestern scalloped potatoes, but the sauce is a rich gravy loaded with butter. Jim Hillibish/ Canton (Ohio) Repository
RECIPE: Crab and Tomato Lettuce Wraps -- Mix first nine ingredients until well blended. Season with salt and pepper. To plate, portion crab salad on plate with several lettuce leaves. To eat, fill lettuce with crab salad. Jennifer Mastroianni/ Canton (Ohio) Repository

STAY TUNED: A cute baby isn't enough to save 'Baby Daddy' - “Baby Daddy” doesn't waste anytime getting straight to its story. In the first episode, we meet Ben (Jean-Luc Bilodeau), a bartender/slacker who lives with Tucker (Tahj Mowry), his wisecracking best friend. Ben's brother Danny (Derek Theler), a professional hockey player, enters the action as their new roommate. Moments later Ben opens the door to find a baby in a car seat on his doormat. After a lot of exaggerated facial expressions and “A baby? What's a baby?” type exclamations, Ben figures out from a note that the baby is his daughter Emma, the product of a brief relationship. By Melissa Crawley, GHNS.

EDITORIAL: Locked, loaded in America - Lost in all the chaos and gun smoke over the theater shooting in Colorado was the first anniversary of an even more horrific event, if one can imagine such a thing - the July 22, 2011 bombing of government buildings in Oslo, Norway, and the systematic slaughter of teens at a nearby youth camp that ultimately left a breathtaking 77 people dead, victims of another twisted sociopath. By Peoria, Ill.
* Poll idea: Ask a question about gun control.
PENN STATE SANCTIONS: Allison B. Hudson: Were Penn State sanctions too harsh? -- I must admit I was in shock of the harsh sanctions that the school is faced with now. The penalty includes a $60 million fine, a four-year postseason ban, an annual reduction of ten scholarships over a four-year period and five years of probation. If you think that isn’t enough, the most significant sanction was that all of Penn State’s wins from 1998 to 2011 have been vacated. Allison B. Hudson/ Donaldsonville Chief (La.)
COLORADO SHOOTING: Gary Darling: Colorado shooting has changed the movie theater -- Shock. That is what I felt when I heard the news. Those feelings quickly turned to horror and rage as more details about the crime filtered in. A “man” entered into a theater, gassed it, then started shooting every man, woman or child who got in his path. Gary Darling/ Maryville Daily Forum (Mo.)

MAKING CENTS: Women may need to plan for long lives - The basics of financial planning are essentially the same for males and females. However, there are some aspects of financial planning that have greater impact on women than on men, regardless of marital status or profession. By John P. Napolitano, The Patriot Ledger.

OLYMPICS/SWIMMER: Olympic swimmer Kara Lynn Joyce is back for thirds -- Joyce had failed to make the semifinals. The 50 freestyle was her last shot, and she surged to a second-place finish and punched her ticket to London. It shocked the nation as the 45-year-old Dara Torres, bidding to make her sixth Olympic team, was touched out by Jessica Hardy, Joyce and Christine Magnuson. Dan D'Addona/ The Holland Sentinel (Mich.)
