    Calvary Assembly of God

    (1 Corinthians 1:18 (NKJV)
    18 For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.
    This time of year people of the Christian faith celebrate the death and resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. His death came as he was hung on a torturous cross and then placed in a borrowed tomb for burial.  

  • Editor’s note: This column from 2009 is being rerun in honor of Nancy Kennedy’s husband, Barry, who turned 65 this week.
    When I first met my husband he drove a totally hot car, a brand-new 1973 Mercury Comet GT, white with burnt orange pinstripes and burnt orange interior -- and a manual transmission.
    Because we were young and newly in love and Barry had miles of patience, he attempted to teach me to drive it. It helped that we lived in Northern Maine where there wasn’t much to crash into except snow banks and caribou.

  • The Feb. 5 meeting of the Omega Chapter of Beta Sigma Phi met in the Cynthiana-Harrison County Public Library Community room, hosted by Kay Cox.
    The cultural program was a joint effort of Linda Root and Cheryl Case about the possibilities of tomorrow. We have all seen so many changes in our lifetimes: the weather, health issues, medicine, the economy, and technology. We need to decide how we are going to live our lives, and to be purposeful in planning for the coming years. Many things change as we age.
