  • If there is one thing most of us who are workers and laborers desire from our labors, it is rest. If we could spend the rest of our days without having to earn our keep by the sweat of our brow, we would most likely embrace it wholeheartedly. Our vacations are always too short, and the weekends fly so fast that Monday seems to hit like a brick wall. We love to take our rests, no matter how long they may be. And we should, for God created us to enjoy rest.

  • The Trimble County Hymn Sing will be hosted by the Hickory Grove Methodist Church, 363 Morton Ridge Rd. in Bedford, 7 p.m., Thursday, Oct. 6. The public is invited.

  • Fruit flies are common household pests at this time of year. They can be a problem year round, but are especially common during the late summer and fall because they are attracted to ripened or fermenting fruits and vegetables.

    Fruit flies are primarily nuisance pests, however, they also have the potential to contaminate food with bacteria and other disease-producing organisms.
