  • Over the decades and centuries, family lines have traversed from county to county or across state lines. That is just as true of ancestors who moved between Carroll and Trimble counties in Kentucky to (or from) Jefferson and Switzerland counties in Indiana.

    So, if you can trace your relatives back and forth across this portion of the Ohio River, you may be in luck.

  • Over the course of the last few weeks, we have been on a roller coaster of weather: below zero temperatures, inches and inches of snow and rain, and flooding waters.  Earlier this week, we received a reprieve from the roller coaster weather with 50, 60, and even 70 degree temperatures.

    Typical Kentucky weather, right?

  • New Year’s resolutions to lose weight or get healthier may be long forgotten, but spring, with its beautiful flowers and warmer weather, is the perfect time to rejuvenate those resolutions by getting active outdoors. 

    Most of us know that regular physical activity can help prevent heart disease and type 2 diabetes, reduce the risk of some cancers, help you maintain a healthy weight; strengthen muscles and bones and improve your mental health. Regardless, most of us do not get the exercise we need.

  • If they are sad, share their sorrow. Romans 12:15

    As an adult, I realize that life is far more complicated than I once thought. The naive little farm boy from Trimble County had the veil ripped off his eyes a long time ago. There is real sorrow in this world. I look around and see so many of my dear friends dealing with things like broken or strained relationships, the death of a loved one, a romantic breakup, or a family separation or divorce... All these cause great sorrow.

  • Hymn sing March 22

    Sanders Baptist Church will be hosting its monthly hymn sing on Sunday, March 22, at 6:30 p.m. The public is invited to attend.
