  • Churches can help by sharing your sorrow

    If they are sad, share their sorrow. Romans 12:15

    As an adult, I realize that life is far more complicated than I once thought. The naive little farm boy from Trimble County had the veil ripped off his eyes a long time ago.

  • Tips offered for spring lawn care and flood cleanup

    Over the course of the last few weeks, we have been on a roller coaster of weather: below zero temperatures, inches and inches of snow and rain, and flooding waters.  Earlier this week, we received a reprieve from the roller coaster weather with 50, 60, and even 70 degree temperatures.
