  • My pastor tells the story about his son needing spine surgery when he was just a young boy.

    He talks about bringing his son to the hospital and the agony of letting go of his boy, handing him over to the surgeons.

    It was a terrible surgery, he says, and they were so relieved when it was over.

    However, shortly after they had come home from the hospital, the doctor called – they missed something and had to redo the surgery.

  • I love animals. It doesn’t matter if they are furry, finny or feathery. I still love them. I hold fast to that sentiment but I have met an animal that has tested my patience. This animal is the goose. Geese are mean. It doesn’t matter if they’re barnyard geese, Canada geese or snow geese, geese are mean. I suspect even Mother Goose had her bad days.

Trimble County Historical Society Cemetery Commission members Chris Liter, David Masterson, Chase Masterson and Lewis Popp, along with magistrate Kenny Green, moved the cemetery’s flagpole to its new location Saturday in the Trimble County Veterans Memorial Park.

  • My latest crime against intellect occurred at the gas station. I have pumped more gas in my time as a driver than I care to remember. In the past I commuted far distances for work so I found it necessary to buy gas more than once a week. In short, I know how to pump gas; except on this particular day.

    My kids and I were just finishing a quick trip to pick up a few items. I noticed that as was custom, my car was nearly out of gas. I pulled into a nearby gas station and that’s where my humiliation began.

  • “Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you” Philippians 4:8-9 (NIV).

  • It’s almost summertime, which means it will be prime harvest season for blueberries and blackberries, both of which have the potential to grow very well in Kentucky. Blueberries, native to North America, are ready to harvest from early June through early August. Blackberries are ready to harvest from mid-June to early October. These delicious fruits offer health benefits, but best of all, they capture the essence of summer in their sweetness.
