  • Over the past few years, my friend Mike and I have had some rather unorthodox conversations about faith and stuff.
    Mike’s the one who once prayed that God would fix his toilet and it was fixed miraculously. He’s also the one who assured me that it’s OK to tell God when I’m angry at him since he knows it anyway and he won’t smite me with boils for being angry.
    Mike is also the one who one year ridiculously announced he was giving up pride for Lent, which I still remind him of 10-plus years later.

    The Harrison County Breds win A.C.I.W.T. classic which was held in Anderson County; the wresting team also won its first tri-match in Covington winning matches against Simon Kenton and Holmes High.

  • Holiday greenery has a history that goes well beyond the Victorian Christmas tree we gather around today. Most of the holiday greenery we use to decorate dates back to the pagan holidays of the Romans and Northern Europeans when certain plants were chosen for their symbolic powers of restoration and protection.
    In celebration of the Winter Solstice, the Romans celebrated Saturnalia, during which they would decorate homes and temples, feast and revel in honor of their god Saturn.

    Dear Santa,

  • With Thanksgiving behind us, the holiday season is just gearing up. The next few weeks are full of good cheer and plenty of food. To help keep your holiday season healthy, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) is issuing holiday inspired food safety recommendations for your Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, New Year’s Eve, Three Kings Day, or other festive gatherings. These tips come from years of experience working to make sure that the meat, poultry and egg products you eat are safe, wholesome and properly labeled.

  • If you’ve been in church for any length of time, depending on the church you may have heard sermons about Bible heroes: strong and mighty Samson, brave David the shepherd boy who fought the giant Goliath and killed him with his sling shot and a stone.
    There’s Daniel in the lion’s den, the three Hebrew teens in the fiery furnace, Moses who led the Israelites out of Egypt.
