  • Relieving health issues caused by stress

    Are you aware that stress is anything that interrupts balance in your body? The impact of this can be devastating. A person normally stores energy for the body’s ongoing daily functions.

    These reserves are mobilized in a crisis. This reaction to stress is called the Fight or Flight
    Response; it has a role to enable the body to have the ability to deal with a temporary life-and-death threat. In an emergency situation, different organ systems are activated and others are inhibited. 

  • Don’t be grudgin’ and judgin’

    There’s this woman. I’ve only met her in person two or three times, but she and I belong to the same professional organization of women authors and speakers, so I see her name continually. About 10 or so years ago she did something that I thought was reprehensible and I took great pleasure in knowing it’s one of God’s top 10 “thou shalt nots” and that she would one day reap what she had sown. That’s not just karma; that’s biblical - a double whammy.


    30 Years Ago (Feb. 4, 1982)
     Annual rainfall for Jan. is 3.5 inches. Trimble County had had about 6.5 inches and Saturday another 2 inches of rainfall was added, sending creeks romping again. While rain was in this area, a 200-300 mile stretch about 50 miles wide had 12 inches of snow for St. Louis to Indianapolis. One-tenth inch of rain equals one inch of snow, thus we could have awaken to a snow-paralysis state on Sunday morning.

    Homecoming King and Queen Friday night were Junior Terry Howerton and Freshman Traci Brierly.
