  • Raising small poultry flocks on the farm or in the backyard has become very popular. The most important things to remember when choosing the type of housing are provisions for adequate shelter from weather, adequate ventilation and also protection from predators.
    You should choose housing that is easy to build from readily available materials. Housing should also have a low maintenance cost and support the changing needs of your flock.

  • On Walker’s Bend, where I come from, when a loved one died we didn’t have a proper funeral home; we had Bro. Rannie. He was a mortician and part time taxidermist. He didn’t advertise it, but if you used him for your funeralizing needs, he would mount your next deer head free.

  • Years ago, I attended a seminar at my church where the speaker, a pastor from a church in San Francisco, quite possibly the coolest city on earth, talked about the “counterintuitive way of doing church.”
    He challenged us to make church a place where those outside the faith could feel welcome as they worked out their process.
    Church, he said, should be a place that encourages questions, gives space for doubt and doesn’t demand that people make on-the-spot faith decisions. Church should be a safe place where people can try faith on, test it out.

    The Trimble County Fiscal Court took glancing blows from all directions at its regular monthly meeting Monday as groups of citizens came before the court to hash over topics ranging from roads to the yard sale resolution made at the court’s February meeting. There were concerned citizens who had circulated a petition in the interest of keeping the courthouse yard open to yard sales.
