  • He was a yarn-spinner and a rail-splitter. He was mostly self-educated but went on to become a storekeeper, a lawyer and the president of the United States.
    He and his future wife were both born in Kentucky. He came into the world in a rough-hewn cabin, she in a luxurious home in Lexington. He was famous for his wit, honesty, and compassion; all of which served him well as he led this divided country during a most volatile tragic time.

    Sunday morning, Bro. Bill continued with his message on the Ten Commandments and looked at number five, “Honor your father and your mother.” Part of the focus was on how we as parents can be honorable. We are to walk in newness (Romans 6:4), walk by faith (2 Corinthians 5:7), walk in the spirit (Galatians 5:16), walk in love (Ephesians 5:2), walk in wisdom (Co. 4:5), walk in truth (3 John 4) and walk after his commandments (2 John 6). What are we planting in the lives of children and grandchildren?

  • James and PruAndera Grider of Long Ridge announce the engagement of their daughter Gabrielle to Kevin Andrew Welsh, son of David and Darlene Welsh of Sheffield, Penn.

The groom-elect graduated from Pennsylvania State University with a bachelor’s of science degree in plastics engineering and is employed at Itron. A June 2013 wedding is planned.

  • It’s a lovely day to be alive. The sun is shining, the birds are singing - yes, the birds are beginning to come back. I saw a beautiful blue bird fly across my viewing area as I drove down the road this past week.
    Ann reports that the skunks are out too. The groundhog did not see his shadow, anywhere in the eastern part of the U.S. and Easter Sunday is early this year, so I am expecting an early spring this year. You heard it here first. Now watch it snow a blizzard on Easter Sunday.

  • Many may recall the old saying, “There’s more than one way to skin a cat.” After spending the afternoon celebrating the 96th birthday of Monterey resident and historical society member Lela Maude Hawkins, I discovered there is more than one way to kill a snake.

  • “When our boys have crossed the ocean. There to die in No Man’s Land
    Oh, what true and brave devotion. As we see them take their stand.
    We will pray for their returning. And we’ll keep the home fires burning;
    We will one and all be true. While our boys are nobly dying
    For the flag. Red, White and Blue.”

  • The Super Bowl has come and gone for another year. I am not a great fan of football so I opted for “Downton Abby,” but I did catch the tail end of it. I got all the gory details from Fay.
    She and Jennifer taped the commercials so as not to miss Adam’s Coors commercial, but unless it was scheduled during the black out, he didn’t make the cut. Maybe it was meant for just the west coast. I’ll have to get Wanda to call him and clarify.

  • First Baptist Owenton
    There was such joy in our worship service this past Sunday. We give thanks to God for the blessing of fellowship with the saints.
    Our pastor continued on the theme of family and preached on “Truths to Teach Every Toddler to Teen.” They must be taught respect for authority, elders, parents, property, children, nature and self. If parents are to claim the promise of Proverbs 22:6, they must carry out the responsibilities. Sunday evening our pastor preached on “Seeing the Unseen” from Hebrews 11:27.
