  • Absolutely nothing says spring more than the distant chorus of spring peepers.  There is a wooded stream just off Conner Station that is home to a cacophonous band of peepers all competing for as many females as they can lure with their peeping charm. 
    On my way home last week, on a warm evening, after plenty of rain, the spring peepers reminded me of how glorious rural life can be.  Just by listening for a few minutes an entire other world can be imagined.

    FRIDAY, March 1

    Vacation Bible School
    Vacation Bible School will be held June 23 at 6 p.m. at Cynthiana Baptist Church
    In a world that is always searching for “the next big thing,” some things never change and can never be improved upon. God, His Word, His Promises, and the Gospel will always remain unchanged and that is why we choose to Kick it Old School. We will reinforce this concept through an 80’s “old school” rock and roll concert environment.

  • It seems I started a firestorm on Facebook last Sunday.
    I had visited a church that’s not my regular church but one I’ve visited many times and where I know a lot of people. It’s a warm, welcoming, caring church, and I consider the pastor a friend.
    That said, something happened.
    Shortly after I sat down in a seat, a couple stopped near where I was sitting and looked a bit flustered.
    After 40-plus years in church, I knew that look. It was the “Oh dear, she’s in our seat” look.

  • I was just thinking about spring but then I realized I should just live in the moment and be thankful that I do not have to battle weeds this time of the year.
    Spring and cool-season weeds will be here soon enough. The most common cool-season annual and perennial weeds will be germinating once our soils warm a bit, it is amazing how quickly it can happen as our days get longer and the sun shines more frequently.
