  • Learning the joy of work

    I know a lot of people that love to mow the grass. I must admit I am not one of them. I don’t know why, but for me it is always a chore and not one I particularly enjoy.

    On the other hand, I do enjoy the look and the smell of fresh mown grass. The other day, after mowing, I took a break for a few minutes and then stepped out onto our porch. The smell of the freshly mown grass was in the air, and I simply enjoyed the moment.

    National Day of Prayer May 5

    The community is invited to gather at the Spencer County Courthouse steps at noon on Thursday, May 5, for the National Day of Prayer. This year’s theme is “Wake Up America” and the key verse is taken from Isaiah 58:1, “Shout it aloud, do not hold back. Raise your voice like a trumpet.” The verse is a reminder to those gathering that prayer is a force for good in the nation. In case of inclement weather, the prayer will be held at First Baptist Church on Main Street.

  • A sock and a shoe

    We all have our routines; the way we do things. One morning not long ago, I realized I am a sock and a shoe kind of guy. Where some people put on both socks, then grab their shoes, I put on a sock and a shoe, then I put on the other sock and shoe.

  • Road improvements will aid access to Ark Park

    Does a new taxpayer-funded highway exit and highway improvements by a Noah’s Ark-themed park violate the separation of church and state?

    One national watchdog group thinks it might. But no one is contemplating any action to stop the new road improvements planned near the soon-to-open Ark Encounter in Williamstown.

    An improved interchange near the for-profit Ark Encounter at Interstate 75 and Ky. 36 made it into the state budget and road plan approved by the Kentucky General Assembly last week. The state is allocating $10 million to the project.
