  • What kind of person are you? When you pass away, how will you be remembered by those who knew you? 

    A couple of weeks ago, my family returned to Texas because I was asked to conduct the memorial service of one of our former church members there. Glen Milham passed away in the early hours of Aug. 1, the very day of his 89th birthday. 

  •  

    Years ago I visited with a woman who sold biblical toys, action figures of Bible characters like Moses, David and Goliath and Jesus.

    The Jesus doll, about twice the size of a G.I. Joe, had movable fingers and joints and if you pressed a button on Jesus’ back he talked.

    As the woman demonstrated, Jesus started reciting Bible verses -- and wouldn’t stop.

  • SILAS BAPTIST

    Members of Silas Baptist Church invites everyone to visit Silas on Sunday, Aug. 28, at 6 p.m. to hear the religious group CrossTithes. The men of CrossTithes are best summed up by their motto: “Simple men. Simple music. An Awesome God!” Devoted to simple service, they believe that God doesn’t call us to do great things, He calls us to do things...and He’ll make them great.

    FRIDAY, Aug. 19

  • One of my favorite things about summer is my front row seat at the orchestra. The orchestra of insects, that is.  

    Late summer, when temperatures cool down enough to turn the air conditioner off and open the windows we fall asleep to the sounds of katydids, crickets and cicadas.  

    I sometimes cheat in the heat of the summer and crack the window in my office so I can hear the insects and the birds as I work at the computer or in the kitchen.

  • * This is a musing of gratitude. How thankful we are for those who realize the importance, the wonder, the purpose of the Cynthiana-Harrison County Museum - our community’s museum.

    * Albert Schweitzer -- “At times, our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person. Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us.”

  • The Driver Safety course 55+ was held July 28 and was a success. Harrison County Homemakers in conjunction with AAA Auto Club and Kentucky State Government sponsored the class. Each year that the course is offered boasts a full class.
