  •  Mt. Pleasant Baptist 

  • Images of Owen countians were captured in photographs, their daily lives recorded in letters, diaries and family histories, and stories of their undaunted spirit were shared by one generation to the next.

    It is these vital pieces of long ago that bind the past to the present and give us insight into our history.

    In a 1950 News-Herald insert, articles written by several Owen countians created a nostalgic journey to bygone days.

  • I have finally shaken the cold I took just before Christmas. I didn’t have a cough or pain, just sat for almost two weeks in my chair in the sun room with Dobbs and sneezed and blew my nose. My appetite has returned, along with my ability to think and form full sentences. 

  • After deep and serious thought, I think I have a solution for all the world’s major problems:

    Everybody stop.

    Just stop. Take a breath. Step back. Chill out.

    Protesters, go ahead and protest, but you don’t have to riot, so put down your bricks and rocks. Stop looting. Stop damaging people’s property. Stop shouting obscenities — and clean up your litter on the streets.

  • Mt. Pleasant Baptist

    “I Believe” was beautifully sung by Barry Winkle last week. Flo Parker joyfully sang “Follow Me” Sunday.  

    “He Didn’t Throw the Clay Away” from Jeremiah 18:1-6 was the basis of Bro. Dale’s message. God is a patient potter, and we are the clay. We were made by God but marred by sin.

  • Sought after by both the American Indians and the early frontier settlers, it was necessary when hunting game in the wilderness, and a means by which an army attained victory on the field of battle. 

    Round balls, molded from lead, was the ammunition of early America. They were used in muskets and the famous Kentucky rifle, and this vital commodity helped conquer the American frontier.

    A distraught woman called 911, desperately seeking help to find her missing parrot.

    “We can’t help you with that, ma’am,” the dispatcher told her. “This number is for real emergencies only.”

    “But you don’t understand,” the woman persisted. “This is a real emergency. The only thing he knows how to say is: ‘Here kitty, kitty.’”

  •  Have you seen “This is Us?”

    It’s an NBC drama on Tuesday nights that follows the Pearson family: three siblings -- Kevin, Kate and Randall -- and their parents, Jack and Rebecca.

    Actually, Kevin and Kate are two-thirds of a set of triplets. The third triplet, Kyle, died at birth.

  • Monterey Baptist 

    We are very happy to welcome the Todd Woodyard family into our MBC family. We are excited to know what God has in store for this family. 

    Wednesday night has something for all ages. The Rock Stars (children) meet in the sanctuary, the men’s Bible study meet in the fellowship hall and the women’s Bible study meet in the youth room. All begin at 7 p.m.
