  • Out of the dark

    Many of us have held our collective breaths over the past few days as we pray for the 12 boys and their coach who were trapped inside a cave in Thailand for the past several weeks. A risky rescue operation began over the weekend, and as we go to press on Tuesday morning, we’re hearing the wonderful news that all the boys have now been brought out safely. As we celebrate, we contintue to pray for the rescue team that still must emerge, and remember the one Thai Navy Seal who lost his life last week in the rescue effort.

  • Weeding out fake news

    People who enjoy a good, productive garden, must invest a considerable amount of time and energy weeding out the bad and keeping the good. Left unattended, weeds can quickly overtake a garden in little time, not only hiding the good stuff, but choking it off and robbing it of nourishment as well.
    To the careless or inexperienced gardener, it may be hard to tell the difference between weeds and crops. They’re all green, they grow in the dirt and it takes training and effort to discern the two.

  • Lessons from my dog

    I’m about to make some of you boiling mad. But before I do, let me tell you about a dog I loved.
    When I was a little boy, we had a medium-sized tanned mutt that wandered onto our three acres in Ballardsville and made herself at home. We named her Lassie. Lassie was a good dog. If I was bored, she’d play with me. If I was sad or sulking out on the back porch because Mom had just given me a whippin’, Lassie would sit beside me and look up at me with big brown eyes that seemed to feel my pain.

  • Happy Birthday America

    Spencer Countians are joining other Americans this week to celebrate America’s 242nd Birthday.
    Born out of a fierce determination and longing to be a free, self-governing people, our forefathers and their families pledged their lives and fortunes 242 years ago by signing a letter declaring our independence from Great Britain. They did so by citing our dependence on the blessings of God and it took the blood and sacrifice of Americans from all 13 colonies to secure our liberty.
    Today, America stands as a beacon for human freedom and liberty.
