  • As we look at evil ways in our life, the dictionary gives this meaning for evil: 1) something bad, sin, wickedness, evil quality or act. 2) a thing that does harm; crime and poverty are some of the evils of society.
    Many times I hear in our society about how evil we have gotten in our country, but most of us know it does not have to be this way.
    David wrote in Psalms 23:4, “Yea though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for thou art with me thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.”

  • According to 1 Corinth. 15:19, joy is connected with life and misery with death.  Am I alive?  Are you? Some Christians would pretend to disagree with Paul here.  So does Christ offer ‘good things’ in life? …make simply life ‘better’? Both! But if there were no hope beyond the casket — there’s no hope before!

  • Dear Savvy Senior,
    When my neighbor applied for his retirement benefits last year, he found that Social Security had made some mistakes on his earnings record in past years, which caused him to get a monthly benefit check that was lower than it should have been. He never got it straightened out. How can I make sure this doesn’t happen to me?
    Paranoid Paul

    Dear Paul,

  • Oh my, where are the fairy-tale characters? Why can’t we believe that these fairy tales are real? Well, because I’m not sure that there is any chance that a princess or prince charming will ever show up in your life. It didn’t happen for my wife and I when we married nearly 50 years ago after courting as teenagers for more than three years. We still are each other’s best friend, but it has not been a fairy-tale adventure.

  • Clint and Kim Rogers announce the birth of their son, Charles Keith Rogers, on July 19 at Suburban Hospital.
    He weighed 7 pounds, 6 ounces and was 19 1/4 inches long.
    He was welcomed home by big sister, Baileigh.
    His grandparents are Larry and Vickie Rogers and James and Barbara Bogard. Great-grandmothers are Aretta Rogers and Clyeda Hardin, all of Taylorsville.

  • Spencer County High School’s agriculture program was recently selected as the 2012 Kentucky Outstanding Middle/Secondary School Agriculture Education Program, according to a news release from the National Association of Agricultural Educators, Inc.
    According to the release, applicants are judged on a variety of criteria, including teaching philosophy, effective classroom and experiential instruction, development of partnerships and professional growth.

  • I was among friends last week, discussing the virtues of okra. Some preferred to categorize the “slime” as a “thickening agent” while others insisted you needed to be a woodpecker to eat one.
    The little ones are best, of course, but often they get too big to be edible. While okra is indeed a great thickening agent in gumbo and other quintessential southern dishes, there is another plant lurking in the garden that can do the same — and you can usually just find it growing along a path or in the flower garden.

  • The state’s produce industry continues to expand in terms of producers, volume, marketing outlets and sales, which are likely to exceed a record-breaking $33 million in 2012. That is what a new study from the University of Kentucky College of Agriculture has found.
