  • Lest I forget: Nothing is impossible with God

    I have been blessed with a terrible memory.
    It’s a blessing because I don’t remember things that haunt other people with better memories. I can’t remember most of the fights I’ve had with my husband or kids or hurtful things people have said or done.
    However, I also can’t remember people’s names or my passwords and PINs or what I went into the kitchen to do or came to the store to buy.

  • Shoveling slow

    The US 27 North bridge over the CSX Railroad is open. The bridge was expected to be open to traffic before Christmas with a Dec. 17 projection. However, last week’s snow hampered the finishing touches and delayed the opening until Sunday morning. Crews worked Saturday setting guard rails for the approaches and the stripes were painted Sunday morning. Above, a Walker Construction worker pushed some snow from the roadway just before the first car crossed the new bridge.
