  • It was so cold in these parts 37 years ago, creeks and rivers, including the Ohio River at Louisville, froze over.
    I was driving to work, headed for the Associated Press in the Courier-Journal building when I went by the mighty Ohio to see how much ice had formed.
    It was Wednesday, Jan. 19, 1977. People were walking across the frozen river (frozen over, not frozen solid). I snapped a few pictures of the walkers, then within minutes police arrived and ordered everyone within sight to stay off the river.

  • I don’t mind a gloomy day here or there, I actually find them somewhat restorative. Too many in a row, though, can be sort of depressing. So, when the winter sky moves in I search out the plants in the landscape that have color.

  • Record keeping may not be every farmer’s favorite activity, and probably not the reason you got into farming as a career. With time, patience and a commitment to get it done, it can make your financial life a lot less worrisome.
    Record keeping doesn’t have to be stressful. It’s a way to discover things about your farm that will help you make better long-term decisions. You can use a ledger book or a computer—whatever helps you maintain consistency. Software programs can make your data more meaningful.

  • A Reading from 1 Thessalonians 5:16-24
    Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. Do not put out the Spirit’s fire; do not treat prophecies with contempt. Test everything. Hold on to the good. Avoid every kind of evil. May God himself, the God of peace, sanctify you through and through. May your whole spirit, soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. The one who calls you is faithful and he will do it.

  • What are your favorite Christmas memories? Do they revolve around family? When I was a kid, I remember my grandparents always came over for Christmas breakfast, then that evening we would have dinner at my Aunt’s house. Christmas always included family.
    And then there is the food! Those family times were special, but I sure do remember those family meals and all the goodies that only showed up at Christmas! Ham and turkey, creamed corn, and then of course the cookies and fudge and apple pies, cakes and candies, do you remember those things?

  • First Christian to host Christmas Eve service

  • Dear Savvy Senior
    What can you tell me about lung cancer screenings? My husband was a long-time smoker, but quit many years ago, so I’m wondering if he should be checked out.
