    “I give all the credit to God,” Tim Harmon exclaimed when he found out he passed his GED in January, 2016. He continued with advice to those seeking their own GED in Trimble County, “Don’t give up, and they won’t give up on you.”

  • Home ownership is a major financial investment. Maintaining your home is a daily commitment that helps to protect your investment and ensures that you and your family are living in the safest environment possible. Over the years, routine home maintenance will save you time, money, and effort.

  • Raising small poultry flocks on the farm or in the backyard has become very popular. The most important things to remember when choosing the type of housing are provisions for adequate shelter from weather, adequate ventilation and also protection from predators.
    You should choose housing that is easy to build from readily available materials. Housing should also have a low maintenance cost and support the changing needs of your flock.

  • On Walker’s Bend, where I come from, when a loved one died we didn’t have a proper funeral home; we had Bro. Rannie. He was a mortician and part time taxidermist. He didn’t advertise it, but if you used him for your funeralizing needs, he would mount your next deer head free.  

  • Palm Sunday, March 20
    The Bedford Baptist Church Choir will present Easter Music at 11 a.m. in honor of our risen Lord. Everyone is invited to attend. If you need a ride to church, please call 502-255-3240 by 8:30 a.m. that morning.

  • Years ago, I attended a seminar at my church where the speaker, a pastor from a church in San Francisco, quite possibly the coolest city on earth, talked about the “counterintuitive way of doing church.”
    He challenged us to make church a place where those outside the faith could feel welcome as they worked out their process.
    Church, he said, should be a place that encourages questions, gives space for doubt and doesn’t demand that people make on-the-spot faith decisions. Church should be a safe place where people can try faith on, test it out.
