  • The Apostolic Pentecostal Church of the Living God, 124 Smith Lane in Bedford, invites you to a weekend Revival with Speaker Bro. Jerry Cottrell from Palestine, W.Va. The Revival will be at 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and 6:30 p.m., Sunday. For more information call Pastor Bobby Wade at 502-255-7510.

  • This past Valentine’s Day, the newspaper ran a story I wrote about Harry and Charlotte Austin who have been sweethearts since Charlotte was 10 and Harry was 11.

    They recently celebrated their 70th anniversary.

    I’ve written about them before – they sit behind me in church on Saturday nights.

    For the past five or so years Charlotte has had dementia, and in 2015 she had a stroke that affected her left side.

  • Jaclynn Waugh came to Jefferson Community and Technical College’s Trimble County Adult Education to get her GED. Although Waugh expected the process to take a while, she accomplished it in a short amount of time and with very little assistance. Walking through the doors of Adult Ed was the “start of a new life to success,” Waugh said. Getting her GED feels like a weight has been lifted and Waugh said she could now move on with her life. She wanted everyone who is thinking about getting a GED to know about her experience with the Adult Education program.

  • Recent news events in Las Vegas, California, Puerto Rico, Texas and now Florida, discuss acts of violence and natural disasters leaving many of us in a state of shock and awe. As hard as it is for adults to make sense of these unfathomable acts, it is even harder for children. Talking to your children about natural disasters, violence and death is not easy, but can go a long way in making them feel safe, secure and loved.

    Ways you can help your child will be different based on your child’s age, knowledge of the situation and their unique personality.

    It’s been my experience that some of the most beautiful things in the world have a dark side – a very, very dark side. One of the most strikingly colored snakes is highly venomous. The Coral Snake is banded with yellow, red and black stripes. Unfortunately, to be bitten by one of these pretties would prove to be an extremely disappointing way to get close to nature.

  • The Indiana Department of Transportation and the Project 421 team will have a public hearing from 4-8 p.m. Tuesday at the Brown Gym, 100 Broadway St. in Madison about the preferred alternative for improving a half-mile section of U.S. 421 through Madison.

    The purpose of the project is to select a route that best addresses the safety concerns, mobility challenges and economic development needs of Madison, according to a news release.

  • There is no surer sign of spring than blooming gardens and flowerbeds, but what happens behind-the-scenes to get them to that point?

    Much of the work goes in before you even break the soil. Before digging in, it’s important to choose the proper site, plan what you’ll grow and prepare the soil to yield the best possible results. A garden is nothing without a good foundation, making it extra important to choose the correct site.

  • The “Instant Pot,” a small kitchen appliance, is the latest craze to hit the culinary world with consumers touting health benefits and ease of use in the trendy appliance.

    The Instant Pot is just one brand of multi-cooker. Several companies manufacture multicookers like the Instant Pot.

    Multicookers have several different functions all contained in one unit. A single appliance can be used to steam, sauté, brown, slow cook, pressure cook, make yogurt or stir food while it is cooking. It depends on the unit design and brand. 

  • The Trimble County Lady Raiders will host its annual Relay for Life night Tuesday. This year’s theme is “Ballin’ for a Cure.” The varsity girls and boys basketball teams will play Henry County in a doubleheader that evening. The girls’ game begins at 6 p.m. and the boys’ varsity game will follow at approximately 7:30 p.m.
