  • COLUMN: Jesus’ hands paved the way for receiving forgiveness

    Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
    John 10:25-29 says, “Jesus answered, ‘I did tell you, but you do not believe. The miracles I do in my Father’s name speak for me, but you do not believe because you are not my sheep.

  • COLUMN: New trend makes great outing, memorable artwork

    A year and a half ago, my friend of 30 years moved from two states away to live four miles from my home. We have known each other since second grade, but this was the closest we had ever lived to one another.

    On Monday night, the Spencer County Fiscal Court behaved in a way some might perceive as odd — its members got along, didn’t yell and addressed each other respectfully when disagreements occurred.
