    There’s the tale about the death row inmate who had been strapped into the electric chair, and the warden was ready to flip the switch.

    “Do you have any last requests?” the warden asked the prisoner.

    “All I ask is that you hold my hand,” the prisoner said.

    Every farm kid who has had exposure to electric fences knows just what would happen if the warden were to hold that man’s hand when the switch was thrown.

  • Every Saturday morning I go to the Panera Bread near my house and write my column for the following week.

    I order an egg white and cheese breakfast sandwich and a small coffee and sit at the table that faces the big window so I can watch the traffic go by.

    I spread my stuff out, my notepad and pen and laptop and assorted notes. Most weeks I already know what I’m going to write about, but not always.

    Bro. Bill’s message was from Isaiah 5:20-21 entitled ‘Pro-God’.  Because we do love people, we need to be willing to share the truth of God’s word with them.

    Last year our serviceberry was afflicted with a whimsical looking disease; the beautiful blue berries that appear in the summer looked like something from a Dr. Seuss book. In a good year the cedar wax wings usually flock in and eat the berries as they ripen, not so last year. The strange, white tubular protrusions that the berries were covered in not only looked funny but they also kept the birds away.

  • Childhood memories leave a lasting imprint upon our souls, and sharing them with others create a picturesque journey into the past.

    These memories come to life in diaries and letters, and are captured and shared at family gatherings.

    In a 1975 News-Herald article, former Owen countian, Herbert Gibson, journeyed back to his youth and presented a colorfully vivid account of early Owen County.

    Herbert was born at Pleasant Home in 1893 and described his small community and its people who shared life together.

  • The weather man said March will finally leave us this week and we’ll get some spring weather. It’s about time. This is a bit much, even for Kentucky.

    I have had a fire all week. John brought over more wood, thinking this week was going to be cold too. My bones take more heat than the average person. He is finally over his cold and feeling much better.
