Today's News

  • Church News: New Columbus Baptist

    Since pastor Brad Vincent is in Haiti this week with a medical missionary group, we were blessed to have Bro. Matthew David filling our pulpit.
    We were very pleased to have several of Bro. David's church family from the Dallasburg Baptist CHurch accompany him. Bro. David spoke of his recent trip to Ethiopia and the continuing need to go out and teach and expose as many groups of people as possible to Jesus Christ and God's Word.

  • Church News: Mount Pleasant Baptist

    Joe McNay sang and played his guitar to his version of "How Wonderful You Are." We are so blessed with talent in our little church.
    "The Attributes of God" from Psalm 66:1-7 was the basis for Bro. Dale's sermon. God is eternal, unchanging, omniscient, omnipresent, omnipotent, holy, righteous, and also a god of wrath.
    Happy 25th birthday to Breann Bond. Happy birthday to Sharon Perkins. Happy anniversary to Glen and Ellie Duke.

  • Church News: First United Methodist

    Bro. Andy’s sermon was entitled “Love” and came from 1 Corinthians 13:1-13. God loves us for who we are and He’s always willing to forgive us. During the children’s sermon, the kids learned that we can talk to God about anything through prayer.

  • Church News: Cedar Hill Baptist

    A wonderful day of worship and receiving of God’s grace was shared Sunday. Bro. John’s message was from 1 John 1:5-10 on Christians having complete joy.

  • Church News: Caney Fork Baptist

    Caney finally got everything cleared so we could meet for services. Seemed almost like a family reunion and we got fed spiritually once again. The choir sang an old favorite hymn, “Blessed Assurance.” Bro. Ed’s message was from Philippians 1:20-24. “Need not be ashamed to be a Christian.” Are we losing why we go to church? Are the social events taking over. Jesus is the way. We seem to be getting out of fellowship in the church. Are we sharing our faith and telling all what Christ has done for us. We should live our life so Christ will be proud.

  • City council rejects pick for attorney


    Despite a push from Owenton Mayor Doug West for a fresh face in the city attorney’s position, a motion was not made in favor of local attorney Mitzy Evans.
    On Jan. 3, West told the News-Herald that he had chosen to not re-appoint Owenton’s longtime city attorney, Mark Cobb, saying he would recommend Evans to the position.
    The Owenton City Council must approve any nomination before the nominee can assume the role.
    The council met Jan. 4, where no motion to appoint Evans was made.
