  • One of my favorite books on my shelf at home is a stolen hymnal.
    I stole it probably 15 or 16 years ago from church and about 12 years ago I told my pastor about it. That was after our church had already gotten rid of all the old hymnals and started putting the lyrics to the songs we sing in the weekly bulletin and on the video screen in the sanctuary during the service.

  • Good Friday Community Service will be held at 7 p.m. Friday at First Baptist Owenton. You are invited to the annual community Good Friday Service. Local pastors will be leading the service. Our theme is “Images of the Cross in Isaiah.” There will be powerful, uplifting music and a nursery will be provided.

  • After a week of cold and clouds, the sun came out and we had a lovely day Saturday. Ann, Pat and I went to lunch at Panera Bread Cafe next door to the Longhorn. I hadn’t been there before, so it was nice to try something new. I liked it very much. We’re going to try it again sometime.

  • A few weeks ago, family and friends gathered around a historical society member, Joyce Hill Smith Hardin, to mourn the loss of her husband, Scott Hardin. Pictures of Scott were on display, and those images conveyed a celebration of a life filled with unforgettable memories.
