  • By Don Powell, Pastor
    Beaver Baptist Church

    Each Memorial Day we honor the men and women who have sacrificed their lives for the freedoms we enjoy today.  
    We remember the loved ones that have gone before us and the example they left for us.
    They each left a path for us to follow. We may not be called upon to lay down our life for a friend or our country, but we can live our lives in such a manner that we can leave a path for our children and grandchildren to follow -- a Godly path and a patriotic path.

  • The Woman’s Club of Harrison County met on Friday, Feb. 12 at Hospice of the Bluegrass for their monthly luncheon and business meeting. Cheryl Case, president, welcomed members and led everyone in the Pledge of Allegiance.  
    The luncheon was catered by Layne Tussey. Bonnie Teater offered the blessing of the meal and presented spiritual values. She reminded us that God knows life is uncertain but He is ever faithful to take care of us no matter what challenges we may face.

  • The Omega chapter of Beta Sigma Phi met at the Cynthiana-Harrison County Public Library on Monday, Feb. 1, with Kay Cox as the hostess. All members were present, and answered roll to the question “what will you be doing for someone else on Valentine’s day?”

  • A strong scent of skunk has been lingering around the house for the last few weeks, which is actually surprising.  Surprising because of the livestock guardian dogs’ presence; not surprising, however, because it is mating season for skunks and they are on the move.
    A few years back, during the day, there was a skunk sniffing about under some pines in the lower pasture. It was evident from its movements and from its awareness  (or lack thereof) of its surroundings, that this creature knew it had the advantage.  

  • The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) is reminding farmers and ranchers that the competitive sign-up deadline for its most popular voluntary conservation program, the Conservation Reserve Program (CRP), is Feb. 26, 2016. This will be one of the most competitive general sign-up periods in history, in part due a statutory limit on the number of acres that can be enrolled in the program. The most competitive applications will be those that combine multiple conservation benefits, such as water quality and wildlife habitat.

  • Recently I spent time with some people who are homeless.
    I had met some of them while tagging along at the annual countywide housing count, which is another way to say homeless count.
    Every year, people who care go out and find the people who live in the woods or in their cars or sleep in abandoned buildings and get as much information about them as they can.
    People who care want to meet these people’s immediate and ongoing needs with tents and blankets and stoves, and also their long-term needs.
