  • Have you seen the large wooden cross in our churchyard on Fifth Street? I watch people staring at the draped cross as they walk or drive by.

    Some people in the community have asked me why that “white rag” is hanging on the cross. Once in a while, young people rearrange the cloth just for fun.

    Periodically, I wash and iron the cloth because the wind and rain and birds take their toll on it. I am so happy that it is not being ignored.

  • On May 4, President Obama declared 14 Kentucky counties as disaster areas due to damage and losses caused by severe storms, tornadoes and flooding that started April 26 and, in some places, continues.

    Carroll County is on this list, along with Boone, Bracken, Campbell, Carter, Fleming, Gallatin, Kenton, Lawrence, Morgan, Nicholas, Oldham, Owen and Washington.

  • Tomorrow night, the Governor’s Office of Agricultural Policy is hosting a forum about the future of investments by the Kentucky Agricultural Development Fund (the cost-share money).

  • A few weeks ago, severe storms and tornadoes ravaged Alabama. Many people lost their lives; many more lost their homes and more. 

    It was a story that, like the Japanese earthquake, became so up-close and transparent with the aid of technology. Because of the instant access to details, videos, and nearness of current events today, teenagers and children have the potential to be instantly exposed to the same information that adults once had to wait for once every 24 hours on the 6 o’clock news.
