  • * Cynthiana Democrat, June 30, 1938 -- “The Whaley Funeral Home will soon be among those places in Cynthiana to have air conditioning. Workmen started the installation of the equipment Tuesday and the machinery will be working very shortly. A factory expert from the Frigidaire Corporation, Dayton, Ohio, is on the job assisted by workmen from Adams & Moore, local distributors of Frigidaire products in Cynthiana.”

  • There is nothing like a tropical plant for bold, bright blooms in your summer outdoor living space.  
    It is the perfect environment because most tropicals like the bright light and heat and humidity that summer brings.
    We baby them through the winter months, waiting for the threat of frost to past so we can bring them outdoors for a breath of fresh, warm air.

  • The word translated “gospel” in our English Bibles is simply the Greek word for “good news.”
    Martin Luther, the great protestant reformer, struggled for a long time to see it as “good news.” When he was a young man near the age of 21, he was caught in a thunderstorm in which a bolt of lightning hit the ground near him.
    Fearing for his life, he cried out to a saint and vowed to become a monk and follow the Lord if his life was spared.
