  • Before coins and paper money were used as a means of exchange, bartering for goods was a common practice on the American frontier. This practice continued in rural Kentucky into the 20th century when local hucksters would trade staples for anything from chickens, eggs, freshly caught fish or a fine snapping turtle.
    Bartering dates back to 6,000 BC when tribes introduced it in Mesopotamia. The Babylonians developed an improved bartering system and exchanged goods for food, tea, weapons, and spices. At times, human skulls were bartered as well.

  • This week it’s all about The Monterey Fair. Its been in the planning stage for some time but the work really started this week, and I mean work.
    The first of last week Noel Thomas, Barbara, Ray and Wanda started the work of cleaning up the fence rows, edging the sidewalks, using a chain saw on some stuff, weed eating, blowing debris into piles to be shoveled into trucks, cleaning the bank building for the history display, etc.

  • Last year we became quasi-temporary guardians of our youngest daughter’s two cats, Mohawk and Target.
    I say quasi-temporary because the daughter has since moved out after staying with us for a year, but the cats are still with us.
    Once our daughter left, we decided to move the cats’ litter box from the guest bathroom to the now-empty spare bedroom.
    To us humans, that’s a simple change, but not to the cats.

  • Cedar Hill Baptist
    Great worship was experienced Sunday in both morning and evening.  Morning message was taken from Isaiah 6:1-11 on ‘Who will Go?’ and in the evening service we have started a series on ‘The Holy Spirit’ focusing this week on what the Holy Spirit does in our lives today.  If you want to hear the truth of God’s Word taught, come visit us at 11 and 6 each Sunday for worship and 9:45 for small group Bible study.

  • Cedar Hill Baptist
    It was a beautiful day as we worshiped the Lord together with great hymns and messages. Sunday morning Bro. Bill’s message was on “Checking the Score,” taken from Revelation 2:1-7 and Matthew 16:26.  We were so glad that Doris Ann and Tierra were able to worship with us.  We’ve missed them due to sickness and college.
    Our Sunday evening message was on “Attitudes of One that Loves Jesus.” Using many scriptures we were challenged to examine how and why we love Jesus.

  • I have a Facebook friend in Colorado, another Christian writer I’ve met with a number of times over the years at various Christian publishing events.
    For the past few years she’s been writing about her oldest son, Zach, who is a drug addict.
    He’s had periods of being clean, but they haven’t lasted. Last summer he nearly died from a drug overdose -- his third overdose in less than a year -- and spent several days in ICU on a respirator, suffering seizures.

  • Last Monday as I was typing the column and getting ready for another week, John came and borrowed my van to take his family on an excursion. He, Charity, her daughter Jordan and husband Chad were taking the grandson, Liam, who is 19 months old, to the The Louisville Zoo.
