  • After the Revolutionary War until well into the 19th century, a group of dedicated stalwart men traveled the wilderness of America to spread the Gospel throughout the newly formed republic.

    With Bible in pocket and gun in hand, early circuit riding preachers left an indelible mark upon America and the American people; and through their untiring efforts they fanned the flames of religious fervor that spread across the land like a wildfire.

    A woman came home to find her retired husband waving a rolled up newspaper round his head.

    “What are you doing?” she asked.

    “I’m swatting flies,” he said. “So far, I’ve gotten three males and two females.”

    Puzzled, his wife asked how he knew which gender they were.

    “That’s easy,” he explained. “Three were on my recliner, and the other two were on the telephone.”

  • I’ve been thinking a lot about the Serenity Prayer.

    That’s the one that goes: “God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can and the wisdom to know the difference.”

    Although the prayer is often attributed to St. Francis, it was written in 1926 by Reinhold Niebuhr, a Lutheran theologian.

    Fun fact: Niebuhr also wrote one of my favorite quotes about humor being the “prelude to faith” and laughter being the “beginning of prayer.”

  • Mt. Pleasant Baptist Church

    Flo Parker inspiringly sang, “All on the Altar.”  “Til the Storm Passes By” was sung by the choir, led by Barry Winkle. Congratulations to Angie Weddle on her profession of faith in the Lord Jesus Christ!  She will be baptized during worship on Sunday, Aug. 28. Bro. Dale’s sermon, “Jailhouse Rock- Part One” from Acts 16 showed us how the jailer’s actions and attitudes changed when he got saved.

  • With a variety of hair-raising twists and turns, the narrow road snakes along from Highway 22 to Perry Park. On its travels it passes through the once thriving community of Squiresville, and the road itself took on the same name.

    Early Squiresville family names, Arnold, Ligon, Lusby, Minor, Minch, Reeve, Montgomery, Morgan, Nuttall, Thomas, Stivers, and others are still prevalent in the area today.

  • Brian and Kelsey Gognat of Owenton are proud to announce the birth of their son, Maddox Haize Gognat.

    Maddox was born at 8:21 p.m., April 16, 2016, at St. Elizabeth Edgewood. He weighed 7 lbs. and 2 ounces and was 20 1/4 inches long.

    Maternal grandparents are Rusty and Heidi Williams of Owenton. Paternal grandparents are Joe and Deb Gognat of Cambridge, Ohio. Great-grandparents are Bill and Vicki Turner of Owenton and the late R.O. and Patsy Williams of Wheatley.

    A little boy opened his lunchbox and, peeking inside, saw a peanut butter and dill pickle sandwich smeared with mayonnaise and ketchup.

    “Oh, another of these crazy sandwiches,” he sighed as he pulled it out and took a big bite.

    The next day, the little boy opened his lunch box and exclaimed: “Won’t you look at this, another one of those peanut butter and dill pickle sandwiches smeared with mayonnaise and ketchup.”

  • On Dec. 8, 2014, no one got eaten alive on the Discovery Channel’s “Eaten Alive” – and some viewers who tuned in to see carnage were outraged.

    On May 6 of the same year, actress Shailene Woodley outraged feminists by announcing that she’s not a feminist, and on Aug. 28, Hello Kitty fans were outraged when the Sanrio company said Hello Kitty “is not a cat.”
