  • “Held for a moment. Loved for a lifetime.”
    These words, etched into the tiny white tombstone, had been been pulmetted by the elements and passage of time. Yet, they whispered across the years and told the story of a heart-rendering loss.
    A small cast angel lay upon the ground in front of the small marker, its outspread wings somehow giving the impression of a protective covering for its tiny charge.

  • I’ve been having computer problems, so what else is new?
    Wanda’s news wasn’t on my computer when I got up last week. I waited as long as I could and wrote the column with what she told me on the phone on Sunday evening. At 10:30 a.m., I checked the computer for emails and there was Wanda’s news.

    Doors will open to new water plant
    Oct. 20, 2010

    After years of construction and planning, local residents will get a chance to look inside the new water-treatment plant near the Owen/Franklin County line.
    Kentucky American Water has announced it will hold an open house Friday for the community to get a peek. The plant, located on U.S. 127, became operational in September after two years construction.

  • In Kentucky, the weather always comes first.
    It was 22 degrees Saturday morning, 26 on Sunday and 24 on Monday.
    Everywhere else was registering in the low 30s on the TV map. I think my thermometer is just old and gets colder than most, but it works for me.

  • The other morning I ate breakfast in the moonlight.
    The temperature outdoors was several degrees cooler than the temperature indoors, so I took my bowl of Cinnamon Chex/Fiber One with unsweetened almond milk and my cup of coffee, opened the sliding glass door that separates the living room from the back screened-in porch and sat at the high-top tile table.
    It was early — I’m a ridiculously early riser — and it was still dark out except for a sliver of a moon.

  • Long Ridge Baptist Church
    We are excited to have the Outdoor Channel’s Chuck McAlister coming to Long Ridge this Saturday. Chuck was the longtime host of AdventureBound Outdoors, a program that gave him the opportunity to hunt and fish across the country and beyond.
    That program pioneered the magazine-style format for outdoor programs and won four national awards. It won the Fan Favorite Award twice on the Outdoor Channel.
