  • “Tomato 101” is for beginners and advanced gardeners alike. There are many assumptions about the tomato that get passed on by the most well-meaning aficionado. I take my tomatoes seriously and have developed a routine to hedge my bets for a healthy summer harvest.
    When it comes to spring fever, the tomato is most abused, most people still plant too early.  
    First, wait until our frost-free date (on average this is May 10, give or take a week depending on where you are located).  

  • The First Christian Church Men’s Fellowship Group with chefs Harry and Carrol Callebs will be serving a spaghetti dinner for $6 per person in the fellowship hall on Friday, May 11. Then walk across the parking lot to the new gazebo for a free treat of music by Phoebe and David Wagoner before the ghost storytelling begins.
    Adam Booth, Thomas Freese and Kim Weitkamp will be weaving scary tales. Be sure to bring a folding chair or blanket for the grass.
    Everyone is invited into the sanctuary after the spaghetti dinner in case of rain.

    If I were to ask you who you are, what would be your response?  Mother, father, sister, brother, grandfather, grandmother, teacher, nurse, doctor, farmer?  
    Those are all important parts of who we are, but the most important thing to remember when you are asked who you are is that you are a child of God. That is our most important identity in this world.  

  • I’ve said many times that whenever someone starts a sentence with, “I know how you are,” what follows is rarely anything you want to hear.
    I have this thing about unmade beds. I believe that everyone should make his or her bed every day immediately upon arising. No exceptions.
    Imagine my surprise when I married someone who does not share my beliefs.
    His mom made his bed every day, and then when he went into the military, he paid people to make his bunk for him.
    And then he married me, a bed-making maniac.

    AWANA will be held from 5:30-7 p.m. at Connersville Christian Church.
