  • There is a hymn that says, “I have decided to follow Jesus, no turning back.” I remember that song at an early age, when as a preteen “I made a decision to follow Jesus.” But at that time in my life, what stuck out the most was “the no turning back.”
    I accepted Jesus at church camp. I was away from my very dysfunctional and abusive home, and believed this decision was not going to take me back to those circumstances. If Jesus cared enough to save my soul, then I just knew he would save me from “going back.”

    CITY ON A HILL

  • This past Valentine’s Day, the newspaper ran a story I wrote about Harry and Charlotte Austin who have been sweethearts since Charlotte was 10 and Harry was 11.
    They recently celebrated their 70th anniversary.
    I’ve written about them before -- they sit behind me in church on Saturday nights.
    For the past five or so years Charlotte has had dementia, and in 2015 she had a stroke that affected her left side.
    So, when they come to church, Harry positions her in the pew next to him in such a way that if she leans she won’t topple over.

  • * Historian George Slade (1916-2005) -- “I remember when Biancke’s Restaurant menu, in addition to other delicacies, listed for breakfast hog brains scrambled with eggs, for lunch cold slided beef tongue sandwiches, and for dinner lamb fries with cream gravy.” (2018 - Congratulations and thanks to Mary Todd and all. Rest assured that today’s delicacies are most satisfactory.)

  • It is almost May and plans are already being made for the second annual Paris Storytelling Festival. The Festival will take place in Paris and Carlisle the weekend of May 11-13 and the lineup is sure to please everyone.
    Back by popular demand is storyteller Bil Lepp from West Virginia. Last year he had the Bourbon County Middle and High School roaring in their seats, as well as the listeners at the Wallis House Garden Club, the Bourbon County Courthouse and the First Christian Church.

  • It is that time of year again and I am reminded because of the smell and road kill left behind. Plus, a strong scent of skunk has been lingering in the pasture this past week; and I got an Instagram video from my niece as she was clearly backing away from a lumbering black and white rodent down by the river!  We used to get them circling the house on winter evenings but our livestock guardian dogs’ presence has kept them from bay the last few years.  Their presence is not surprising, however, because it is mating season for skunks and they are on the move!

  • The annual Harrison County Homemakers International Dinner will be held Monday, March 25, at 6 p.m. at the Extension Office.
    Kelsey Knight will present a program about her year in Ghana. She will talk about working in a local middle school, working with farmers and her 4-H Club.
    She will also have some products she brought home, such as fabric, money, and beads that she collected in Ghana.
    The dinner will begin at 6:30 p.m. and is open to the public. Guests are asked to bring a covered dish and enjoy the evening’s fellowship.
