  • Sometimes you go to church and you hear the same stuff over and over.

    Sometimes it flies over your head or you’re thinking about what’s for lunch and the pastor sounds like the teacher in the Charlie Brown cartoons going, “Waah, waah, waah,” and you have no idea what he said.

    And sometimes you hear something that you’ve heard before but for some reason it’s like you’re hearing it for the first time. Or maybe it’s the thing that you needed to hear precisely at that moment.

  • It is that time of year when the calendar and all of nature begins to tell us it is summertime!

    Traditionally and recreationally, we are told that summer begins with the celebration of Memorial Day. We all enjoy the good times that summer brings. Time for various outdoor activities that otherwise would not be suitable. But it is also good for us to take time before the hustle of summer activities to do some “remembering.” In fact, it is always good to pause in the hectic pace of life and purposefully make time to reminisce about the days and years gone by.

  • It’s that time of year again folks. The County Agricultural Investment Program (CAIP) is available for residents of Trimble County. This is a great opportunity for people who are interested in improving their operation or just beginning to start their own.

    Please take time to look into this and the education that is offered with this program. Folks have utilized this financial benefit for years and have been able to make improvements to their personal undertakings.

  • We all want to eat food that tastes good. One of the most common ways we make food taste good is by adding salt. Unfortunately, most American diets are too high in sodium. Diets high in sodium can raise blood pressure, which can lead to many major health issues including heart disease and stroke. Herbs provide a great way for us to limit our sodium intake while still consuming flavorful foods.

  • My husband and I grew up in two different cultures. He is an assimilated Hispanic from up North. I’m a Southerner who recently became vegan. How’s that for diversity? This blend of traditions has made life interesting at our home.

    Food has provided many opportunities for learning, growing and absolute, unmitigated horror.

  • iLEAD Academy participated in the Technology Student Association state competition on April 23 in Louisville. Students in all grade levels at iLEAD (freshmen, sophomores and juniors) competed individually or in small groups in various STEM-related events ranging from animatronics to CAD engineering to STEM careers to fashion design and technology. The three-day event was held at the Crowne Plaza Hotel and culminated with the award ceremony on Wednesday morning.

  • The Second Continental Congress in 1775, established a National Day of Prayer which we celebrate the first Thursday in May. Hundreds of thousands of people across the country, many different faiths and denominations, nationalities, ethnic groups and ages, participated in prayer for our country.

  • 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.

  • Positive Attitude

  • 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.
