  • It seems inspiration can come when we least expect it.

    That’s something Nick Sabelhaus, 23, of Carrollton, has discovered over the past two years. Growing up, the 2008 Carroll County High School graduate had never been interested in physical activity and had no specific goals for his future.

    “I’m a naturally lazy person,” Nick admits.

  • A crowd of nearly 70 people gathered at New’s Auction in Carrollton on Sunday to help Reva Fishback celebrate her 100th birthday.

    The event couldn’t have been in a more fitting place because Fishback is known as the “queen of the auction house,” her granddaughter Bev Hughes said in a Friday interview.

    Fishback worked at News Auction every Friday night for many years, helping folks with information on items up for sale. Hughes said she would offer details, such as its age and whether it was an original or a reproduction.

  • Please read Ecclesiastes 2:1-11. These scriptures teach us that Solomon made costly mistakes.  Known as the wisest man who ever lived excluding Jesus, Solomon made some costly blunders.

    His pursuit of worldly goods that did not pertain to God’s vision for him produces insanity. By the time he penned these words, he had reached a high level of success, but was not satisfied or content.

    Like many people today, he felt empty.
