    Births announced this week are: No births to report this week.
    The Christian Angler Sports Team (C.A.S.T.) has begun sponsoring a program at the public library called Rods and Reels. Patrons can go to the library and check out a fishing rod, complete with tackle box (just like they would check out a book). David Rogers and Paul Kempler, CAST members, have found something that would help kids become involved in outdoor recreation. CAST also organizes several other events.

  • Back in 2007 we installed a 5-acre tall-grass prairie with assistance from the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife’s Habitat Improvement Program.  
    Each year they assist a number of landowners in various ways that improve habitat, prevent erosion and protect waterways. Basically, you do the work but they supply you with the materials needed to get the job done.

    Harrison County Hymn Sing

  • By Jessica Sayre, County extension agent for Horticulture
    Fireflies evoke memories of a childhood chase. You’d catch one in your hand and wait to see the flickering light and then moments later, release it unharmed and watch it fly away.

  • As a Christian, I have a longing desire to grow in my knowledge of God. I never want to come to a point in my life when I can look back on times past and say that I was closer to Him then than I am now.
    I have sadly witnessed so many individuals in my life that seemed to have had a more intimate relationship with Christ years ago than they do at present.
    In my quest to have a deeper relationship with God, I find that few requirements are more important than purity of heart.  

  • Last week, the Rev. Doug Shepherd died.
    I met him in 2002 at his auto parts business.
    His dad was in the auto business too, and they were both Pentecostal preachers.
    I had been writing a story for the paper about the 100th anniversary of Pentecostalism, and although I had lots of history and background information, I wanted to talk to a real-live Pentecostal.
    At the time, “Brother Shepherd” preached on Sundays, but during the week he fixed cars.
