  • ‘I won’t be the one’

    Underage drinking is not just a youth problem. It is very much an adult problem. 

    It is a problem that cannot simply be left up to young people to fix; we as adults must work to correct this problem. After all, the law states that you have to be 21 to purchase alcohol, so they have to be getting it from somewhere. Inconsistent laws in the state of Kentucky send mixed messages to both adults and youth.

  • Weight the Reality Series starts Sept. 7 for 10 weeks

    I have taught this series for several years and recently been fortunate to have Becky Wilson, R.N., of Three Rivers District Health Department working with me so I have a medical professional who understands any underlying medical concerns that our participants may have.

  • ‘Come and See’

    On the feast day of St. Bartholomew on Aug. 24, I meditated upon the reading of the day, John 1: 45-51.

    Here we see Philip who found Nathanael and told him, “We have found the one Moses wrote about in the Law, and about whom the prophets also wrote — Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph.”  Then Philip invited Nathanael, “Come and see.”

    Nathanael is identified as Bartholomew. Jesus called directly most of the Apostles. In the case of Bartholomew it was Philip who told him ‘come and see.’

  • Battle of the Banks seeks pet food donations for CCAS

    It started with a calico kitten dodging vehicles on Hwy. 227 and the Battle of the Banks was born. 

    Anna Skirvin left her teller station at First National Bank of Carrollton to help a defenseless kitten find safety. She called Carroll County Animal Support President Sherry Stamper to see if someone could foster the kitten. CCAS members Cheri Martin and Robin Caldwell Welch drove over to pick up the kitten and proceeded to the veterinary office as the kitten was ill and malnourished.
