  • First Christian Church

    The Rev. Dann’s message was “Growing Like Weeds” on Sunday. He challenged us with the question, “Is our faith still growing like weeds, is it still active?” The choir sang a beautiful melody led by Berna Tanksley; and during the “Time for Young Disciples,” the children learned how easy it is to be successful when you have God’s help.

  • Elk Lick Baptist

    Bro. John’s message was on “Planking Ahead,” John 14:1-3. Jesus said he prepared us a place and will come back to get us. We need to plan for our trip. Jesus will come in the blink of an eye. The dead will rise first, then the saved will rise in the air to meet him. We pack for a trip now — when Jesus comes we don’t need anything but ourselves. We need to change our currency for heavenly currency. We need to help others. We need to use our gifts for the Lord and store accounts in Heaven. We need a ticket to travel here — our trip to Heaven is free, paid by Jesus on the cross.

  • Dedication service

    A dedication service was recently held for Aiden and Arron Gullion. They were accompanied by Bro. Jared, Meagan and Bro. Matthew Gullion.

  • Can pain be a gift?

    Last month, a man I know had surgery on his hand, the second surgery on the same hand.
    After the first surgery his hand had lost quite a bit of feeling. On the one hand (no pun intended), that meant it didn’t hurt any more. But on the other, no feeling meant he couldn’t do his job, which requires using both hands and all his fingers.
    After the second surgery his hand was still numb, which was a huge disappointment for him. But then during the middle of the night it started hurting. His wife told me he was happy for the pain because that meant he could feel again.

  • Wildcats spoil the Rebels’ plan

    When Owen County played in Richmond following Christmas, they were hoping it would be a precursor of bigger things to come. The Rebels, however, saw their hopes of a return trip dashed Jan. 25 in the semifinals of the 8th Region All ‘A’ Classic.
    The team that ended their hopes was their old nemesis in this tournament, Gallatin County. The Wildcats knocked the Rebels out in the first round last year and defeated them in the finals in 2007.

  • Toole wins player of the week honors

    A Lady Rebel has been named NCKC Player of the Week.
    Senior Samantha Toole was honored for her play against Anderson County and Shelby County two weeks ago. In the two Lady Rebel victories, Toole averaged 14 points and six rebounds.
    Basketball is not the only sport where the senior excels. Toole is also an outstanding goalie on the soccer team in the fall, and she will be at first base when the softball season opens this spring.

  • Lady Rebels take two out of three

    A week that began with a loss in an Eighth Region showdown ended with a 31st District win.
    The Lady Rebels opened up last week with a contest against the team some thought was the best in the Eighth Region — the South Oldham Lady Dragons.
    “I think they are the best team,” Owen County High School Head Girls Basketball Coach Bob Osborne said.
    The Lady Dragons came to Owenton Jan. 24 and went back to Crestwood with a 67-52 win.
    South Oldham jumped out to a 6-1 lead and had extended that lead to 20-13 by the end of the first quarter.

  • For great family meals, think five

    The Norman Rockwell painting of the family sitting around the dinner table seems to have been relegated to bygone days. The busier we get, the harder it is to have a family meal.
    According to a recent study conducted by Columbia University, some of the benefits are better school success, instilling family values and dealing with weight concerns.
