  • The greatest love story ever told

    There was once a great, noble, faithful, righteous husband who married. His wife became discontent. She left him, looking for greener pastures. She chased after false lovers who held out a deceptive promise of a full and satisfying life which she vainly pursued.
    Initially, it felt like freedom. She thought she was choosing, but increasingly she fell deeper into a tyranny of her own desires and fell captive to users and abusers.
    She was trapped, stuck, captured. She accrued a tremendous debt. A debt produced by selfish desires and the manipulation of and by others.

  • Error-prone Breds lose at Scott County Monday

    Senior Grant Bennett was not his own worst enemy Monday as he pitched against the 13-3 Scott County Cardinals in Georgetown.  
    He gave up just six base hits and walked four while throwing two wild pitches as the Cardinals won 10-0 in five innings.  His and his teammates fielding was the big problem as they combined for seven errors with Bennett picking up three of them.  

  • 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.
