  • Food Pantry needs increase during holidays

    To the editor:
    I want to thank all of you that contributed to the Food Pantry back in the summer when we had a very low time. All of you were very generous to help keep the doors open and serve many in need.
    Some of you have ask, is there some that abuse the pantry? My answer to that is not if we can help it. We keep pretty close tabs on the clients, but if some gets by us, that is between them and God. The number that really needs it and does not abuse it far outweighs those who do, so rest assured we are doing all we can to keep it running correctly.

  • Doors open on new gym, Park and Recreation System

    I’ll be the first to admit that I’m not athletic -- never have been, never will be.
    The only time I was ever on the athletic field was as a band geek. For me, that was my way out of working in tobacco in the summer and winter.
    In the summer I missed a lot of chopping weeds by sweltering on the high school pavement with a hoard of other band geeks. And, Saturdays were usually spent at some stadium in Kentucky in competition.
    I missed stripping tobacco because of concert band practices and pep band for basketball games.

  • Too many die too young in wars of ‘stupidity’

    Editor’s note: The following is the speech given by Chuck Duffy at Battle Grove Cemetery, Nov. 11, 2012, for the annual Veterans’ Day program.
     
    Good morning! I thank the Battle Grove Cemetery’s board of trustees, superintendent Mr. Billy Grayson and his competent staff for hosting this annual event. I am grateful to take part in this occasion.

  • Mirror magic

    A month or so ago, I met a man with part of his right arm missing – he was a tree trimmer and had an accident involving a chain saw.
    I asked him if the missing part ever hurt. He said as a matter of fact, it was bothering him as we were talking.
    Doctors call it “phantom pain.” The limb or body part is no longer there, but the person may still feel as if it is. Sometimes an amputated foot tickles or gets that “pins and needles” sensation of having fallen asleep. Sometimes a missing arm or leg aches or itches – or hurts like heck.
