    The Spencer County Lady Bears dropped a 73-35 decision to a tough Anderson County team Saturday afternoon at the middle school.

  • FROM THE WORD: A doubting Thomas

    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.
