  • Prayer: believing, knowing and trusting

    I’m not sure of the protocol for praying for a frog, but I took my chances this morning and did it the best way I knew how.

    As my husband and I poured bleach onto our driveway, we didn’t see the frog in the grass next to the driveway and accidentally got bleach on the little guy.

    We felt terrible, and immediately my husband got out the hose to wash the frog off. Meanwhile, I prayed: “Dear God! This poor little frog! Help him! His eyes must be burning – help him, please!”

  • What's cool?

    Despite the recent choking, smothering, summer heat these past weeks, there’s several things that are cool.

    It’s cool... that the Cynthiana Rotary Club wants to help rebuild Haiti.

    It’s cool... that engineers and architects at the University of Cincinnati have researched a building method using bags of dirt or rubble.

    It’s cool... that the new building method may allow Haiti to use their old buildings (many flattened by the January earthquake) to construct new buildings.

  • Scrimmage with Rowan County ends in a draw

    Playing from the 40 yard line in, on half the field, the full contact scrimmage with Rowan County ended in pretty much a draw Friday night. 

    Coach Mark Carroll wasn’t sure if the score was 3-2 or 3-3 touchdowns, but came away knowing that there were still some parts of the game that needed work. 

    “I was pretty happy with the offense overall,” said Carroll.  “We still need to tackle better on defense.”
