    Perhaps you heard about the woman who was pulled over for doing 65 mph in a 40 mph zone?

    When the policeman asked for her license, she told him she didn’t have one, that it was revoked two years ago for drunk driving.

    The policeman then asked for her vehicle registration, but she said she had stolen the car, killed the driver and stashed his body in the trunk.

    “Ma’am, don’t move,” the policeman ordered. “I’m calling for backup.”

  • When I first met my husband he drove a brand-new 1973 Mercury Comet GT, white with orange pinstripes along the sides and orange vinyl interior – and a manual transmission.

    As Barry attempted to teach me how to drive it, I proved myself to be a willing student, but not an adept one.

    I understood the whole clutch-brake-gas pedal thing in theory, but when it came to putting my foot on the correct pedal at the correct time there seemed to be either one too many pedals or I had one too few feet to do it right.

    We had a wonderful morning of worship through beautiful special music provided by Mikala, observance of the Lord’s Supper, and a great message of truth from God’s Word. The message from Proverbs 29:18 titled “Give Them Something to Believe In” challenged us to surrender our whole life to God and to get our priorities in order.

  • The small granite marker seemed insignificant surrounded by larger, more elaborately carved tombstones. The name etched on top of the stone, Colorado Grant, was unknown to most, yet the man buried beneath the gravestone truly touched the lives of Owen countians in the early 1900s, for he gave them a glimpse of the western frontier.

    On a hot day a few weeks ago, as sunlight bounced off tombstones and baked visitors, the Owen County Historical Society and the Owen County Public Library joined together to visit Owen County’s past.

  • A fellow was bragging about his son Johnny getting a job over at the steel mill.

    On his first day, the floor boss, a man with a tough reputation and scolding tongue, called Johnny into his little office to lay some ground rules.

    “You the new man, huh?,” he asked in a gruff voice. “What’s your name?”

    “My name is Johnny,” the young fellow responded.

  • Every so often I’ll say to God, “With all due respect and with the full realization that you can fry me on the spot, which I admittedly deserve – you have obviously lost your mind. Sir.”

    Here’s a perfect example: After many, many months of inviting a friend to my church, one day several years ago this friend finally decided to actually come.

    I should’ve been happy about that, but that particular week was right in the middle of a capital campaign, which meant the pastor would be talking about giving money.

    Bro. Bill’s message was from Revelations 21:1-8 on the promise of a better day.  Sunday evening we enjoyed the movie “Woodlawn.”

    Set aside August 13 on your calendar for a wildlife showcase at the fairgrounds.  Bring your deer, fish, etc. to showcase, enjoy a meal, music, message and door prizes.

    Remember in prayer Helen Allen, Patsy Fitzgerald, Glen Whitaker, John and Margie Porter, and many others who are ill.

  • Virginia Ruth (Lewis) and Billy Bates Davis will be celebrating their 65th wedding anniversary on Thursday, June 23, 2016.

    The couple were married in 1951 at the home of Virginia’s Aunt and Uncle Judge Thomas and Emma McGregor in Frankfort, Ky. The Davis’ made their home in New Liberty, on the family farm where they reside today.

  • Though seemingly endless, the narrow winding road eventually reaches its destination at Browns Bottom, where the historic  Blue Wing Inn welcomes visitors.

    Formerly the summer home of Mason Brown, the inn was built circa 1850. Its Greek Revival architecture is punctuated by  gingerbread trim galloping delightfully around the house, adding character to the exterior.

    You may have heard about the fellow who brought a raccoon home and announced to his wife that he now has a new pet.

    She asked: “Where are you going to keep it?”

    “Right here in the house,” he replied.

    “But,” she continued, “what about the horrible smell?”

    “I got used to it,” he said. “I’m sure the raccoon will too.”
