    Just a reminder that City on a Hill Church is no longer meeting at the old Berry Lumber Co. Building. We are now holding services every Sunday in the Community room at the Cynthiana-Harrison County Public Library.
    Connect time is 9-9:45 a.m. for some recreation and Bible Study for our youth with the youth Pastor. Adults will also meet for fellowship in the community room at these times. Service will begin at 10 a.m. with live worship. Come as you are and worship with us.

  • I was sleeping soundly, all wrapped up in my sleeping bag, in my tent, miles into the back-country of Minnesota. I had canoed all day so I was tired, which helped me fall asleep quickly. 
    Suddenly, a loud crack of a tree trunk nearby followed by a growl woke me from my slumber. As my friend Billy and I tried to unwrap ourselves from our sleeping bag cocoons, we heard shouts from outside yelling “Bear!  Bear!” 

  • Whenever my husband starts a sentence with, “Before you say no, hear me out,” I know I’m headed for a heart attack or two.
    It’s usually about an idea he has for a change around the house, from knocking down a wall to rearranging the furniture.
    No matter what the change is, I immediately hate the idea only because I hate change of any kind.
    I’ve had the same hairstyle for 30 years, the same job since 1992, the same husband since 1975. The furniture in my house hasn’t changed since we moved in 16 years ago.

  • The hostas and daylilies are barely poking out of the ground and I’m already noticing signs of slug activity.  
    The primrose and lungwort have been munched on; bagworms are dangling from the pines and the next generation of borers are stirring beneath the bark getting ready to emerge and reproduce; the larvae of the holly leaf-miner are ready to become flies.
    So, what do we do? For starters, go outside and take a good look around. Examine your plant material and look for any evidence of insect activity.
