Today's Features

  • It’s the middle of January. Christmas is over and the bills are due.  New Year is well on its way and some of our resolutions have already fallen.  We leave for work in the morning and it is dark, we get home at night and the sun is already setting.  And for some people it is all they can do to keep going.

  • The Denver Broncos starting quarterback, and Heisman Trophy winner, Tim Tebow, may not have succeeded in another win against the New England Patriots on Saturday, but fans are still praying – and thousands more as well.
    It is nothing new to see a quarterback drop to one knee after a snap – but it is an entirely different thing to see him kneel and pray. “Tebowing” is a word used to describe this “taking a knee” in prayer and has officially entered the English language and has been added to the American lexicon.

  • This writer unveiled the only confirmed photo of Confederate Capt. William Clarke Quantrill several years ago.

  • This morning I was thinking about the first article I wrote on the church page in the Spencer Magnet. It was about the rich man and Lazarus, the beggar.
    As we look at the gospel of Luke 16:19 we see Lazarus, the beggar, died and was carried by the angels to Abraham’s bosom, which was in heaven, and we see the rich man also died and was buried.

  • A couple of weeks ago my wife and I took a vacation. Along the way, like most people, we took a lot of pictures. With new digital cameras it is easy to take tons of pictures, even though we may only print a few.
    I bet you probably have vacation pictures around somewhere, or wedding pictures, maybe pictures of a birthday party or some other special event. Those pictures tell us stories from our lives, of special people, special places, special days. Photographs can trigger memories and evoke emotions. We remember how warm the sun was, or how much we laughed.

  • We visited friends in Boulder, Colo., over the Christmas holiday and had an opportunity to visit the Celestial Seasonings Tea Company that is headquartered there. In fact this one factory produces all of their tea sold worldwide.
    Celestial Tea had humble beginnings with a group of “passionate young entrepreneurs” (i.e hippies in 1969) who began collecting herbs from the slopes of the Rocky Mountains and crafted their own herbal teas to sell to local health food stores. Today Celestial Seasonings is one of the largest specialty teas companies in North America.

  • Orchids are becoming increasingly popular as houseplants. One orchid you are likely to encounter is the Phalaenopsis, or moth orchid. It gets its name from the shape of the flower that resembles a moth in flight.

  • One of my favorite authors, Dr. Willard Harley, a noted clinical psychologist, states in one of his books, “His Needs, Her Needs,” that when a husband or wife comes to him for help, his first goal is to help them identify their most important emotional needs — what each of them can do for each other to make them happiest and most content. He has found that most of their responses can be classified into 10 emotional needs categories.

  • Chris and Jessica Limpp of Taylorsville announce the birth of their daughter, Abigail Rose Limpp, on Dec. 13, 2011, at 2:32 p.m. at Suburban Hospital in Louisville.

    She weighed 7 pounds and was 16 inches long.
    She was welcomed home by a sister, Alexandra Jameson.
