Rich James' comment about Bill Costas shows he does not understand what it means to be a born again Christian, which I believe Bill was. Bill did not get religion but Jesus in his heart. Jesus saved him.

Jesus said in Luke 19:10, "He came to seek and save that which was lost." No one is born a Christian; we are all born a sinner. Romans 3:10 reads, "There is none righteous, no not one." Romans 5:12 reads that through Adam sin entered into the world and death through sin and death passed upon all, for all have sinned. In John 3, Jesus tells a religious man he must be born again to see or enter the kingdom of God. We must be born again in the spirit.

Do you think the Lake County Solid Waste Management District should pay its new director less than its former director?
