Today's Features

  • One of my “heroes of the faith” is Dutch Holocaust survivor, Corrie ten Boom. She wrote about her experiences with the Nazis during World War II in her autobiography, “The Hiding Place.” This book literally changed my life. Though it is not very “manly” to admit, I wept as I read page after page of not only God miraculously intervening to preserve the lives of Corrie and her sister Betsie but also of love overcoming evil. If you need an example of the Christian faith applied to real life, look no further than Corrie ten Boom.
     

  • During the month of January through Feb. 14, area residents are invited to bring your child’s photo, ages from birth to three years, to Kroger in Carrollton for the annual Cutie Pie Contest.

    Kroger shoppers can vote on their favorite cutie pie by dropping money into corresponding cups.

  • During the winter, it is often hard to come up with really good fresh vegetable meals. Tomatoes are never as good as the summer, however, I will buy the tomatoes on the stems because they do taste a lot better to me. I much prefer to use frozen vegetables because they also seem more like fresh vegetables, and frankly, the frozen vegetables do retain more of their nutrients. There are always good ways to cook the frozen vegetables and you don’t have to cook them to death, you can still have them al dente.

  • The current winter season has dumped snowfall on the local area more frequently than has been seen in a number of years.

    Unusual snowy and icy conditions have also been experienced in numerous parts of the south during the past several weeks. But the weather is mild compared to the two months of bitter cold Ohio Valley residents experienced between Dec. 8, 1917, and Feb. 7, 1918. Locals walked, skated and even drove automobiles and heavy horse teams across the frozen Ohio River that winter.
