  • I spent this past weekend feeling sad.
    The reason isn’t important — actually, there really wasn’t a reason other than I just felt like being sad, and so I was.
    I called my sister to tell her that I was sad, but she was at her granddaughter’s soccer game and didn’t answer her phone, which made me even sadder.
    I would’ve told my husband I was sad, but he would just tell me all the reasons I have not to be sad or he’d give me a pep talk, which is not the proper response to sadness, in my opinion.

  • The solemn faces of four men and two young boys are featured in the photo. Posed in front of the Danish post office and dressed in early 20th century clothing, the group creates a picturesque image of early Owen County life.
    Twin Creek Valley is nestled adjacent to the Kentucky River near the Carroll County community of Worthville. At the turn of the 20th century, folks settled in this area to farm and operate businesses. Before long, several small communities sprang up, and for a time prospered.

  • Probably the biggest weekend in this part of Kentucky since the ending of World War II, has just passed without a major disaster.
    The Breeders’ Cup weekend, Halloween and a UK football game, colliding on the same weekend. I take my hat off to the planning and law enforcement groups  that  made it happen.
    I, for one wouldn’t have been in the Lexington area for all the gold in Ft. Knox, if there is still any gold there. But everybody else seemed to have a great time.

  • Monterey Baptist Church
    We had special guests at church Sunday. Bro. Ross Lishen and his wife, Jean, joined us for worship.
    Bro. Lishen was pastor at MBC from 1962 -1964. He also gave the morning message about life lessons. It was a pleasure to have them worship with us. We are always glad to have visitors choose MBC as their place of worship.

  • I love a good conversion story, that moment or series of moments that lead up to a person going from not belonging to Jesus to belonging to him.
    I remember telling my friend Mike that it was like getting married. Either you are or you aren’t. I told him you can think you’re married, say you’re married, live with another person as if you’re married, but unless you’ve signed the marriage license and said, “I do,” you’re not married.
