  • In our day of political correctness and cultural diversity, or another term used is pluralism, a

    theory that there is more than one basic substance or principle. I often hear the following

    statement: “Faith is a private matter.” Mostly this statement comes from those that are opposed to religion altogether. It is the political correct way to say, “Keep your belief to yourself.”

    What has bothered me lately is I have heard the same “Faith is a private matter” from those who believe in the gospel of Jesus Christ.

  • The Trimble County Hymn Sing will be hosted by the Milton Baptist Church, 10076 Hwy 421, 7 p.m., Thursday, Sept. 1. The public is invited.

  • The Carrollton Fire Department has initiated a continuing fire safety program that provides children with educator-approved materials and services made available by the National Fire Safety Council, a 501c3, tax-exempt, non-profit organization dedicated to the safety of children. The fire department has been working with children pre-K through fifth grade in the local schools and daycares since about 1980. Because of this, the National Fire Safety is awarding them a 35-year plaque for their faithful service to the children and parents of Carrollton.

  • Hello once again, my friends. As I sit here typing this month’s article, the dog days of summer are in full force. Well, I say that, but this morning it’s 64 degrees with low humidity so what I should say is that the dog days of summer would be in full force. Would be if we had normal weather patterns anymore, that is. What is in full force for certain is that most of us are over our normal summer vegetable routine.

  • On most days as I’m on my way to work I see a car with a bunch of bumper stickers on the back.

    There’s a “26.2” and a “13.1” sticker that means the driver is probably a marathon/half-marathon runner. Other stickers say things like “Easy does it,” “One day at a time” and “Let go and let God.”

    I’ve seen those slogans before and they’re often associated with 12-step programs like AA, although they don’t belong to them exclusively.
