  • 30 Years Ago (July 30, 1981)

  • Recently, I traveled from a flower garden in Milton to a ballgame in Carrollton then to a nursing home in Cincinnati where four lively ladies were celebrating over 400 years of living. From there I went to see the Brooklyn Bridge and then to Tokyo Towers in Japan.

    I did all of this at the Trimble County Public Library through photographs taken by Phyllis Codling McLaughlin, former editor of The Trimble Banner and The News-Democrat.

  • It seems each summer more information is released regarding what we should and should not do to protect your skin from the sun.  July is UV Safety Month, so take the time to take care of your skin and prevent skin cancer for yourself and your family!  

    Ultraviolet radiation is the main cause of skin cancer. The best way you can precent skin cancer is to protect your skin from the sun. Although the sun is the main culprit, you can also get UV radiation from tanning booths and sunlamps.

  • Years ago I had a sort of business acquaintance whom I idolized.

    I was just getting started in book writing and at the time she was one of the top names in Christian publishing.

    This woman wrote some of the funniest books I’d ever read, plus she was highly in demand as a speaker. She probably still is.

    Back then she could make audiences laugh until they wet their pants and snap her fingers and bring them to their knees in surrender to the Lord.
