    Cedar Hill Baptist Church

    We were greatly blessed Sunday as Linda led our music and sang a special with MiKayla.

    Also, appreciate testimonies shared by Linda and Glenna.  It is great to be bold in sharing how God has worked and is working in our lives.  Bro. Bill’s message was from Exodus 2:1-10 entitled “An Example for Today.”  It focused on what to do when we’ve done all we can do.

    Sunday evening we watched movie “Risen” and then celebrated Glenna’s birthday.

  • Holy Yoga wasn't about poses, it was about encountering the living God

    I love yoga – pants.

    Soft, comfy and forgiving. They’re great to wear around the house or to bed. They’re especially great to wear before, during and after you stop at the store and bring home a vanilla creme bundt cake and maybe slice into it one or 12 times too many.

    Not that I’ve ever done that, but if I do, I’ve got the perfect pants for it.

    Yoga itself I don’t know well enough to love. I love the idea of it, of wearing the clothes and being in a space that’s usually beautifully lit and serene.

  • Never rile an old mountaineer toting a double-barrel shotgun

    You know you’re getting old when you skip the health foods because you realize you need all the preservatives you can get.

    You know you’re getting old when, if you fall, you wonder what else you can do while you’re down there.

    You know you’re getting old when you come to realize time may be a great healer, but it’s a lousy beautician.

    I’m not sure who authored those lines, but I found them quite amusing. They also got me thinking about what the Bible says about the aging process.

  • Road closure will only affect one city block of Owenton

    BY CASEY ELLIS
    Owen County Judge-Executive

    As we look forward to nicer weather, school being out for the summer and summer activities, I wanted to inform the citizens of Owen County about the road closure scheduled for June 1-30.

    There seems to be some confusion around this subject. The reality is one city block will be closed. That block is from the traffic light at East Adair to the Seminary Street traffic light (and just to the edge of the People’s Bank drive through).
