  • It is difficult to think of personal things to write about in a column for a newspaper if you really think about it.
    I try every once in a while to have a more personal story, especially from my childhood, for some of the readers to try and relate to and other times I pick a topic in the community and just spill out my thoughts.

    Berry Christian Church will be celebrating its 100 years on Sunday, Oct. 2 with a service at 10 a.m. Many former ministers will be the guest speakers.

    Lunch will be served along with an old-fashioned hymn sing in the afternoon. Everyone is welcome to attend.


  • When I was a kid we used to listen to a record album of silly songs.
    One song went: “Glory, glory, hallelujah. Teacher hit me with a ruler. She bopped me on the bean with a rotten tangerine….”
    I can’t remember the rest. But even all these years later, whenever I hear the word “glory” that stupid song pops into my head. (And now it will pop into yours.)
