  • Outdoors - Spring is the best time to land a trophy muskie

     

    Spring break for many conjures thoughts of traveling somewhere warm and catnapping on a beach between rounds of golf.

    A staycation sounds much better if you’re a muskellunge angler from Kentucky. The state’s muskellunge fishery has earned a reputation that extends beyond its borders, and experienced anglers know spring is one of the can’t-miss times of the year.

  • Long term living

    Not long ago on a mission trip, I met some young people who stopped me in my tracks.  They came up after a service was over just to talk for a few minutes.  Over the next 30 minutes, I got a lesson in the reality of Christian living in the modern world.  They were experiencing a lot of pain just to gain some temporary happiness and acceptance.

  • In like a lion...out like a lamb

    The old saying, “In like a lion…” has held true so far for the month of March.

The truth is that some, even in our own church, are struggling in different ways that many of you are not aware of.

    We each have different ways of dealing with struggle, in whatever form it takes. Some share their struggles, while others hold in and seemingly walk around as if everything is great.

    If you want a glimpse into the last 100 years of American history, you can pick up a book or you could sit a spell and talk to Harold Hormann, who on Saturday, turned 100 years old.

    The Spencer County man has lived here with his son, Ed, since late 1999, but his life touched those across the Midwest and the nation because of his work during World War II.
