  • A volunteer experiences race mania

    I spent a good part of Saturday at the Kentucky Speedway as a volunteer for the Carroll County Animal Support Group. Our volunteers manned the tram stops Friday evening and from 8 a.m. till 9 p.m. Saturday. 

    It was an easy job, but oh so hot. I must say, I have never seen people work so hard to have fun.

  • Church hosts conference for deaf
  • Small groups provide guidance, camaraderie, encouragement

    I really anticipate early Saturday mornings. I know that the following awaits me: good coffee, great conversations about life and the Bible, and deep friendships that encourage me as a husband, father and friend.

    No matter how long we gather together over coffee, I walk away strengthened, encouraged and challenged in my own life; for this, I am grateful.

    I am appreciative of what my friends can bring to the table on a Saturday morning, and I hope that the feeling is mutual.
