  • Jean O’Banion is really improving, at last. Wanda said she is beginning to gain weight. In fact, she is doing so well, Ray felt like he could get away for a few days.

    He, Wanda and Barbara went to Green River Lake to her houseboat and spent the weekend. She said the weather was beautiful, perfect for fishing on Saturday when they got there. There was a bass tournament going on, but it didn’t bother them. They were fishing for crappie. They were biting and they got enough for two suppers while they were there and enough to freeze and bring home.

    It was a great day in the Lord’s house yesterday as we enjoyed the Capital City Boys concert.  It was a wonderful to worship and fellowship with many other believers.

    Bro. Bill’s message was from 1 Timothy 4 called “Don’t Be Fooled.”

    It was great to have several visitors with us. We invite you to worship with us any Sunday at 11 and 6 with small group study at 9:45.  If transportation is needed call 502-484-5236 or 502-514-1594.

  • A few months ago, the one I call my uncle dad was out shooting a gun and the noise did something to his hearing so now people sound like Donald Duck to him.

    Since then he’s had a lot of people who are also hard of hearing commiserate with him.

    He says it’s comforting to be able to say, “You too?” However, he really, really, really wants his hearing back.

    It was the last day of school and all the kindergarten students were giving gifts to their teacher.

    The florist’s son handed her a beautifully wrapped box. The teacher felt it and said, “I bet I know what this is. Flowers.”

    “That’s right,” the little boy said. “But how did you know?”

    “Oh, just a wild guess,” she said.

    Mulch has become a landscape staple, almost to a fault when it is over applied, smothering roots and girdling trunks. When done properly is can help to suppress weeds, retain moisture and moderate temperature. These things can be achieved using a variety of materials but which type of mulch suits your needs best?

  • “It was a most amazing generation. To say they changed the history of the world is an understatement.”

    With these words, Marlene Browning Wainscott described a moving chapter in the lives of six Owen county veterans.

    Marlene’s program, presented at the historical society meeting last week, brought to life the stories of these Owen County heroes.

  • What a beautiful weekend – warm, sunny and a pleasant breeze for a change from the howling winds we have been having.

    The hunting shack’s parking area was full of pickups. I knew there must be some kind of hunting season. I asked Tim Chisholm at church what they were hunting now and he said turkey, but he countered with a question of his own, “Did you hear that big boom as you were coming to church?”

    There’s the tale about the death row inmate who had been strapped into the electric chair, and the warden was ready to flip the switch.

    “Do you have any last requests?” the warden asked the prisoner.

    “All I ask is that you hold my hand,” the prisoner said.

    Every farm kid who has had exposure to electric fences knows just what would happen if the warden were to hold that man’s hand when the switch was thrown.
