Today's News

  • Seeing Jesus everywhere

    A few years ago, I learned that somewhere in Citrus County Jesus was in a tree.

    Not literally, but a woman had called the newsroom to say she could see an image of Jesus in a tree that was in her yard.

    Lots of people think they see Jesus in stuff. Just Google “things that look like Jesus” and you’ll see photos of the face of Jesus in everything from pieces of toast and cloud formations to slabs of marble or rust stains on the surface of an iron.

    Some items are even for sale on eBay.

    People see Jesus everywhere.

  • The choices are: high-chair or defendant's chair

    The eleven Trimble County stores that began lottery ticket purchases were already reporting sales numbers. Bob Rowlett, owner of the Kentucky Souvenir Shop, said more than 3,000 tickets were sold, including a $500 prize to Carl Raisor from Hanover, Ind. Video Now said they had 250 sales, Country General Store in Milton with 485 sales, Morgan Drug Store with 121 total tickets sold and Deer Run Golf Course also reporting four or five tickets sold in the span of a few hours.

  • Some popular bills not given serious thought this session

    Legislative sessions are mostly remembered for laws that are enacted, but for some people, keeping a bill from the governor’s desk is a victory, too.

    When the General Assembly wrapped up its work late last month, for example, teachers were especially pleased to see that two of the bills they strongly opposed never even came up for a vote in the House, much less the Senate.
