  • So, this is the last time I’m writing about Jonah -- I promise. Maybe.
    It’s just that his story is so chock-full of things that smack me between my eyes.
    Last week I wrote about being inside the fish. This week, Jonah’s been spit out onto the shore, alive.
    My pastor said of this recently: “The grace of God spins you like a tornado, then it throws you out.”
    He added, “It throws you back in the fray,” back in the game, back in the battle.

  • The Woman’s Club of Harrison Country met on Feb. 8 at Bluegrass Care Navigators for their monthly luncheon.  President Virgie Wells welcomed members and guests then led everyone in the Pledge of Allegiance.
    We were pleased to have two guests join us for the luncheon. Beth DeLong was the guest of Alice McEwan and Patsy Barnett was the guest of Carolyn Lancaster.

  • * Perhaps you, a friend, your parents, or grandparents were graduates of Cynthiana High School. Many wonderful memories of this special school abound - the students, the faculty, the building, the activities, the green and the white, the Bulldog, and on and on.

  • It is that time of year again and I am reminded because of the smell and road kill left behind. Plus, a strong scent of skunk has been lingering in the pasture this past week.  
    We used to get them circling the house on winter evenings but our livestock guardian dogs’ presence has kept them at bay the last few years.  
    Their presence is not surprising, however, because it is mating season for skunks and they are on the move.
