  • 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.

    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.

  • 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.

    Help make decorations for Project Prom from noon to 4 p.m. in the Trimble CARES office, Room 118 in the Board of Education Administrative Offices (the old middle school). You do not have to be an artist or crafty, just able to slap a bit of paint here and there.
