    Controlling mosquitos is challenging to say the least and with all the rain we have had this spring, there is a better opportunity for mosquitos to be a bigger pest than usual this summer. You may even begin think you are fighting a never-ending battle.

  • Once again we enjoyed sweet potatoes all winter long from a fantastic harvest last fall. I planted out about 25 organic slips purchased from Country Corner Greenhouse in Shepherdsville in late May and by early November we had four nursery crates full of one of nature’s perfect foods. Seven months and counting in storage with no spoilage is impressive. We are down to about a dozen sweet potatoes; just in time for a transition to other summer vegetables.

    Boyers Chapel, Sadieville, will be having a revival June 3-5. Bro. Kevin Strausbaugh, Senior Pastor of Beaver Baptist Church, Oddville, will be preaching.
    Services will start at 6:30 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, and 11 a.m. on Sunday. There will be special singing at each service.
    Everyone is welcome.

    Connnersville Christian Church, 2190 Ky. Hwy. 1842 E., will accept shoes through June 24.

  • On my last birthday I turned 61.
    I thought by this age I’d get the hang of the whole sainthood thing, at least the Protestant definition of a saint as simply being a follower of Jesus, although that somehow doesn’t seem to be enough. Shouldn’t there be more to it than that? Hitting a benchmark of obedience? Praying without ceasing? Saying no to temptation eight out of 10 times, or at least two out of 10?
    If so, then I’m a poor excuse for a “saint.”

  • Attention anyone with a closet: Those shoes you no longer want are desperately needed to fight the human tragedy of global poverty.  
    That’s the message being delivered by KidCountry, the Children’s ministry of Connersville Christian Church, which has launched a drive to collect 10,000 pairs of shoes to help the poor.  Used and new shoes can be dropped off at (Connersville Christian Church).
