    A week that began well for the Owen County Rebels quickly went “South.”
    The Rebels opened up last week by traveling to North Oldham. After falling behind early to the Mustangs, the team rallied to pick up the 57-51 victory. Owen County trailed 16-7 after the first quarter but turned things around in the second to cut the deficit to 23-21 at halftime.

  • A legend is lost

    Who knew that the final lap would be his last lap?
    As Michael Waltrip crossed the finish line of the Daytona 500 Feb. 21, 2001, his brother Darrell in the broadcasting booth became both emotional and concerned all at the same time.

  • We’re all in this together

    Every Sunday afternoon in Placentia, Calif., the Watson family gathers for Family Day.
    Although informal — most every Watson comes either barefoot or wearing flip flops — it has its own set of rules and rituals.
    According to Jennifer (Watson) Fiamengo, the rules mainly pertain to the food served. If they grill hamburgers or hot dogs, her mother MUST make her family-famous macaroni salad. If they have Mexican food, her mother must make seven-layer dip.

  • Salem Baptist

    Sunday, we had a wonderful crowd on such a wonderful Lord’s day.
    Special thanks to our music guests, Mr. and Mrs. Jack and Lucy Parker, and Mary Marlow.
    Bro. Jared’s message was “Being Able to Say I Love You,” based on  John 3:16-17 and Matthew 3:13-17.

  • Pleasant Ridge Baptist

    The Rev. Wotier’s message, “Do You Know My Voice?” was taken from John 10. God cares for us like a shepherd cares for his sheep. Christ is the Door and the Shepherd. Christ is the access point for His flock. Christ’s sheep follow Him. Jesus’ sheep have eternal life. His sheep cannot be snatched from His flock if we truly believe.
    The deacon of the month is Ralph Toole.

  • Old Cedar Baptist

    What a beautiful day it was Sunday. The sun was shining and the birds were singing. It was nice to see so many people in church.

    Joy and her puppet told us the real meaning of Valentine’s Day — job well done by all.
    Bro. James’ sermon was titled “Are You Willing to Suffer Persecution for Jesus?” taken from Matthew 12.

  • New Liberty Baptist

    On Sunday morning, the choir called the congregation to worship with a beautiful old hymn, “Sweet Hour of Prayer.” Bro. Emory’s message was “Drifting Away” from Hebrews 2:1-4. In Bro. Emory’s message he spoke of the dangers of drifting away from the things of God like the church in Ephesus as they left their first love.
     This week has been a week across our land where many received beautifully adorned boxes of the best chocolates, beautiful bouquets of roses and other symbols of love.

  • New Columbus Baptist

      Those who attended our Valentine Social Saturday night had a good time.
      Sunday morning, Joe McNay sang “I Can Only Imagine.”
    “The Love of God” from Romans 8:35-30 was Bro. Dale’s message. God’s love is incomprehensible, inseparable, and inescapable. Live in God’s promises, not explanations.
