  • Busy times on the Hilltop

    The action on the Hilltop has been at a fever pitch for some time and will be even busier this weekend.  
    It will not be as busy as it would have been with the Vernon Bibb softball tournament cancelled but still there will be a lot going on.  
    The action all started with the 60th Annual Lions Auction followed by the Rotary/Relay for Life pancake breakfast and the Frankie Taylor Memorial Easter Egg Hunt.   

  • Grace Notes

    I hate clutter, although you’d never know it by looking at my desk.
    This morning I had some free time, so I decided to go through the piles of notes and scribbles scattered around, which usually results in a “random notes of grace” column.
    I hope something will be helpful or encouraging to you today:
    Some months ago, I wrote down something my friend Mike said: “I had faith that I was going to heaven, but I didn’t trust God to fix me NOW because I didn’t see how he would or could do it.”

    Tuesday, April, 11 was the date for the battle between the two not perfect but undefeated girls’ soccer teams in the Bluegrass Conference.  
    Woodford County came to the Hilltop with an identical record as the Fillies at 3-0-1.  
    Along with Woodford County came steady rain which brought a very wet field.  The Fillies struck first as Kylie Hudgins played a nice ball to Laurel McDaniel who beat the Woodford keeper to the spot for a 1-0 lead.
