  • Boil water advisory lifted for Milton

    A precautionary boil water advisory issued Sunday in downtown Milton for customers who lost water service due to a water main break was lifted yesterday.

    Although no contamination has been confirmed Milton Water and Sewer Co. issued a statement recommending that downtown customers should bring all water to a rolling boil, let it boil for three minutes and let it cool before using or use bottled water.

    Repairs on the broken water main were completed Monday.

  • Random God musings

    Occasionally I clean out my column ideas folder and come across random notes and musings, sometimes written in the middle of the night, sometimes in the margin of a church bulletin during a song or sermon during a worship service.

    None of the ideas are big enough for a full-blown column, but they may be helpful to someone reading this. So, here are some random thoughts and miscellaneous musings:

  • A Madison Regatta memory

    Madison Regatta race week is my favorite time of the year in the Ohio River Valley. As far as I’m concerned, those of us who live in Trimble County, Kentucky, and Jefferson County, Indiana, are the luckiest people on Earth.

    Those who live in other localities don’t know what they’re missing.

    I moved to Trimble County in 1999. But my obsession with the Madison Regatta began long before that.
