  • ‘I am the Good Shepherd’

    We continue celebrating the Easter Season, full of joy and gratitude for the gift of salvation we have received in Christ Jesus.

    This past Sunday in our church we focused on the gospel of St. John 10:11-18. Jesus said, “I am the Good Shepherd.” I remember learning that the image of Jesus as Shepherd was the one first used in the early church. The faithful of the pristine church understood from lived experience the horror of the Roman death sentence.

  • Webster remembered for the many things he did for Carrollton

    Many have shared their memories of Charlie Webster this past week and tonight, as I write, I am moved to share mine.

    In a large way, Charlie was Carrollton to me. I first met him as my pharmacist working out of the old drug store on the square, but soon we connected in a much closer way. Both unrepentant Democrats, we shared our experiences and beliefs in that party over the years. Our stories of old-time politics in small Kentucky towns were made real by our memories of our parents and grandparents.

  • Houseplants can be moved outdoors as weather warms

    Moving houseplants outside in late spring or early summer is good for them because they get better air circulation and light exposure. This also is a good time to repot your container-bound plants.

    Wait to move plants outdoors until at least mid- to late-May, or when the weather is consistently warm.  Since most houseplants have a tropical origin, temperatures below 40 to 45 degrees Fahrenheit might damage them.
