  • Jesus saw the city and wept

    We are so familiar with the entrance of Jesus into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday. It was a brief moment of triumph as people laid down their cloaks like a red carpet and waved palm branches with abandon. What a frenzy of welcome for this superhero. (Luke 19:35-38)

    Immediately after, Luke says Jesus wept over that city. “If this day you only knew what makes for peace, but it is hidden from your eyes.” Jesus left Jerusalem a week later, carrying a cross to Calvary hill where he was crucified as a criminal — and people wept.

  • Cartmell students learn stone carving

    Stone carver Albert Nelson was first exposed to his current profession as a Cub Scout, carving neckerchief slides, when he was 8 years old.  

    While Albert’s best-known sculpture is probably the 17-ton limestone baseball glove at the Louisville Slugger Museum, he and his wife Penny also are well-known for introducing thousands of Louisville-area school children to stone carving over the past 30 years. 

  • Garden fresh vegetables inspires meatless meal

    After spending time in the hot afternoon sun picking vegetables from my friends’ garden, I wasn’t up to spending a lot of time in the kitchen. However, I had some nice vegetables I don’t have in my garden that would make a lovely meatless dinner.

    Now, I must admit, I am not very good about eating meals without some form of meat. I grew up with grandparents having a big farm and every year we had freshly butchered beef and pork that went directly into our freezer.

  • Trimble roasts Carroll in sweat match

    The Trimble County High School gymnasium was much like a sauna on a sultry Thursday evening last week as the Lady Raiders hosted Carroll County in volleyball. Trimble jumped to an early lead and never trailed in either contest en route to wins of 25-17 and 25-14.

    Trimble head coach Ruth Staples noted her team at times had a tendency to coast after building a large lead. In the opening contest Trimble fronted 22-10 before allowing the Lady Panthers a run that brought them within 24-17 before Trimble closed the door.

  • Panthers dominate second half, win 27-18 over Ludlow at home

    “One of the ugliest wins we’ve had in a long time, but I’m not going to complain,” head coach Mike Weedman said.
