Today's Features

  • The solemn faces of four men and two young boys are featured in the photo. Posed in front of the Danish post office and dressed in early 20th century clothing, the group creates a picturesque image of early Owen County life.
    Twin Creek Valley is nestled adjacent to the Kentucky River near the Carroll County community of Worthville. At the turn of the 20th century, folks settled in this area to farm and operate businesses. Before long, several small communities sprang up, and for a time prospered.

  • Probably the biggest weekend in this part of Kentucky since the ending of World War II, has just passed without a major disaster.
    The Breeders’ Cup weekend, Halloween and a UK football game, colliding on the same weekend. I take my hat off to the planning and law enforcement groups  that  made it happen.
    I, for one wouldn’t have been in the Lexington area for all the gold in Ft. Knox, if there is still any gold there. But everybody else seemed to have a great time.

  • Monterey Baptist Church
    We had special guests at church Sunday. Bro. Ross Lishen and his wife, Jean, joined us for worship.
    Bro. Lishen was pastor at MBC from 1962 -1964. He also gave the morning message about life lessons. It was a pleasure to have them worship with us. We are always glad to have visitors choose MBC as their place of worship.

  • I love a good conversion story, that moment or series of moments that lead up to a person going from not belonging to Jesus to belonging to him.
    I remember telling my friend Mike that it was like getting married. Either you are or you aren’t. I told him you can think you’re married, say you’re married, live with another person as if you’re married, but unless you’ve signed the marriage license and said, “I do,” you’re not married.

  • Since last year I’ve gotten three new podmates at work, all millennials (those born in the 1980s to the early 2000s).
    One just turned 30, one just turned 27 and one, at 22, is younger than my favorite denim jacket that I still wear.
    I call them my pod kids and they call me their pod mom.
    Of the three, the 30-year-old was horrified to learn that she is a millennial. She had me watch a “Millennials in the Workplace” YouTube video that hilariously portrayed her generation as, among other things, always expecting a reward for doing their job.

  • Monterey Baptist Church
