  • When I grew up as a boy, one of the old sayings was when anyone has a doubt, someone would call them a doubting Thomas. In those days, I did not know where this saying came from.

    As we look at the book of John, we will see. It will also make us wonder how many doubting Thomases we have in the world today – or even in our churches.

  • Margie Porter was showered with gifts and adoration during a reception Saturday for devoting 50 years in service to Valley Cemetery.

    “I don’t think there are words that can describe what she has meant to us,” said Charles Johnson, president of the Valley Cemetery board.

    Yet, many words were used as friends and relatives touted Porter’s abilities. Words like kind, sweet and the phrase “a heart of gold.”

  • Are you facing this Christmas alone and saddened. Are you feeling despondent because no visitors will call bearing gifts? Are you not to be cheerful this Christmas because you grieve for a loved one? These are emotions not normally seen as part of the Christmas package, but sadly are.

  • Foggy Bottom Farm is 400 acres on a bend in the Salt River. Michelle Armstrong and her husband Kevin have raised hogs, beef cattle, tobacco, corn, soybeans and hay on this fertile land that’s been in her family for three generations.

    Health issues pushed the Armstrongs to lease their farmland, but that hasn’t kept Michelle from being active in all things agriculture.

    Recently Armstrong was named vice president of the Kentucky Women in Agriculture, a 10-year-old organization dedicated to educating and providing a network for women farmers across the state.

  • Students in grades K-2 at SCES have been involved in the Health and Wellness Club, sponsored by 1st grade teacher Jennifer Durrett.

Students have learned a variety of fun activities that will keep them healthy, and they have participated in making healthy snacks that they will be able to make by themselves at home.
