  • LETTER: Need government to correct problems

    I ask the question: what is the real purpose of government?  Is it to try to fix the problems facing the country or sit back and ignore them.  President Obama and the Democratic Congress are trying to fix the problems while the Republican party of “no” is trying to keep the country from moving forward since they oppose helping the people who need these programs. According to an article in the Courier-Journal March 23, Rand Paul and his tea bag followers are also against helping those in need.

  • Living Lord's Supper

    Members of First Baptist Church of Fisherville presented a living interpretation of Leonardo DaVinci’s painting “The Lord and His Twelve Disciples” Sunday night. As the men sat motionless, bathed in a warm yellow light, the choir sang hymns of praise. Before a packed sanctuary, each of the 12 disciples took turns exiting the “painting” to tell the audience about his personal relationship with Christ and their fears of being the one to betray God’s son. “Is it I?” each would ask.

  • FROM THE WORD: When trouble is on every side

    This morning, I woke up thinking about people doubting their salvation. We all know this doubt is brought on by the devil.

    One day I went to see my mother and she said, you know I have done everything I know to do to make it right with God and if there was anything else I knew to do I would do that too, what do you think?

    I said mom, if you have did that, I believe that is all God would require you to do.

  • CUB CEO steps down

    Citizens Union Bank announced that Billie Wade, its CEO since 1991, will retire from that position and as a member of the bank’s board of directors, effective Friday.

    The bank had been under review by both the state and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation for what bank officials have said was a series of problem loans.

    The announcement was delivered in a terse press release. It is not known if Wade’s decision is related to those examinations.
