Today's Features

  • My grandfather sold insurance by day and in his spare time he was an artist.

    He mostly painted clowns – scary clowns.

    A few of his paintings hung in our house, which meant as a kid I had major heebie jeebies nearly all the time, especially at night.

    When you’re a kid getting up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom and you know scary clowns are staring at you from the walls in the hallway, well, you grow up neurotic and afraid.

  • Cedar Hill Baptist Church

    We had a wonderful message from Revelations 4:1-2, 6-11 on a guide to worship.  In order to worship we must recognize and acknowledge God and respond to Him.  Be in prayer for our Bible school this week.  We will be studying Joseph, from prison to palace.  Come join us each night this week beginning at 6 p.m.  If you need a ride please call 484-5236 or 514-1594.

  • The Civil Air Patrol (CAP) Frankfort Composite Squadron cadets spent Memorial Sunday paying respects to our fallen veterans. Cadets from Owenton and Frankfort flights attended an event and visited two memorials.

    The cadets attended a Post 34 of the American Legion and Auxiliary Annual Memorial Day service at the newly renovated Healing Field in the Legion Park, Lawrenceburg.

    It’s that time of year when we get more thunderstorms. Weather patterns are more active, and storms thrive with the moisture and rapidly rising warm air that is very common during the transition to warmer seasons.

  • There is a new face at the Owen County Cooperative Extension Office this summer. Ashley Craigmyle, a resident of neighboring Henry County, began her 12-week internship with the Owen County 4-H Program May 23. She will work through the summer until mid-August.

  • Delbert and Charlotte Howard are celebrating their 55th wedding anniversary with their family. The Gratz Road, Squiresville Road area has been their home for all of their married life. They have three children, two grandchildren, two step-grandchildren and five step great-grandchildren.

  • John and Margie Porter will celebrate their 60th wedding anniversary tomorrow. They were married June 9, 1956 in Wiesbaden, Germany.
     

  • “Certainly no bread in America has been more popular over a longer time than baking powder biscuits. In fact, in many homes they were baked three times a day in great quantities, and were eaten hot, with butter and honey or preserves, along with every meal.” James Beard, 1881.

  • The sun is shining and the first week of June has slipped by me while I wasn’t looking.

    Fay said they finally got some garden planted, as did Billy Ballenger. Tomatoes and corn will be a little late this year. The weatherman said no rain this week so they were headed for the hay field this morning, as are most of the farmers in this area.

  • Cedar Hill Baptist Church

    We were greatly blessed Sunday as Linda led our music and sang a special with MiKayla.

    Also, appreciate testimonies shared by Linda and Glenna.  It is great to be bold in sharing how God has worked and is working in our lives.  Bro. Bill’s message was from Exodus 2:1-10 entitled “An Example for Today.”  It focused on what to do when we’ve done all we can do.

    Sunday evening we watched movie “Risen” and then celebrated Glenna’s birthday.
