  • There’s a lot to look forward to in the fall, but if you suffer from fall allergies, it can be hard to enjoy the season.
    Hay fever, also called allergic rhinitis, starts with cold-like symptoms. Unlike a cold that goes away within a week, hay fever lingers until the cause of the allergic reaction is identified and treated. One of the most common causes, especially during the fall allergy season, is ragweed. Ragweed begins to pollinate in mid-August and sticks around until a hard freeze.

  • I have a Facebook friend in Colorado, another Christian writer I’ve met with a number of times over the years at various Christian publishing events.
    For the past few years she’s been writing about her oldest son, Zach, who is a drug addict.
    He’s had periods of being clean, but they haven’t lasted. Last summer he nearly died from a drug overdose -- his third overdose in less than a year -- and spent several days in ICU on a respirator, suffering seizures.

  • All this uproar over government eaves dropping, hacked email accounts and “big data” collection has reminded me of my childhood. Aunt Geraldine was doing “big data” hacking back in the 1950s, she tipped the scales at 300 and it was called the party line. No need to get upset, as the Good Book says, “There is nothing new under the sun.” All I ask, if the government is eaves dropping on us, at least give everyone a chance to listen in and get in on the party…..line that is!

  • Sept. 25, 1986 (30 years ago)
    An extremely tired elderly man was happy to see rescuers Sunday night after he strayed from the Trimble Nursing Center and became lost. About 28 members of the Trimble County Rescue Squad, Milton Fire Department, Bedford Fire Department, both EMS units and several civilians responded to the call at the nursing home when the staff discovered that a resident, Wyatt Powell, was missing at about 8 p.m. Sunday. Powell was found at 9 p.m. about ¾ mile behind the nursing home, near a cornfield on an old logging road.
