  • Just two months shy of their 63rd wedding anniversary, Buddy Stoner lost his battle with a long illness on Feb. 3, 2018. However, his wife Betty will continue to think of April 29 as their anniversary.
    The couple was married just six weeks after they began dating. It was wartime and it seemed that Buddy would be going to war. Then he wasn’t, then he was.
    To make a long story short, the marriage took place after just six weeks of dating, then he didn’t go to war.

  • I want to say spring has sprung, but it hasn’t landed.  
    I have 215 Freedom Ranger chicks coming in the mail next week and I want warm-not just sort of warm-for the new two-legged arrivals.
    My lettuces, potatoes, onions and kale are fine (they will actually thrive in these conditions) but I need warm before I can even think of putting a tomato, bean or cucumber out in the garden.
    Two things that can set you back in the vegetable garden from the start: poorly prepared soil and seed or seedlings set out too early.  

    Just a reminder that City on a Hill Church is no longer meeting at the old Berry Lumber Co. Building. We are now holding services every Sunday in the Community room at the Cynthiana-Harrison County Public Library.
    Connect time is 9-9:45 a.m. for some recreation and Bible Study for our youth with the youth Pastor. Adults will also meet for fellowship in the community room at these times. Service will begin at 10 a.m. with live worship. Come as you are and worship with us.

  • “To everything there is a season, and a time for every purpose under the heaven.” — Ecclesiastes 3:1
    Today, I’d like to take a look at the different “seasons” we go through.
    Hebrews 4:16 tells us, “Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.”

  • If the Rev. Larry Silverman knew anything it was that “Jesus paid it all.”
    Larry was co-pastor with his wife, Corinne, at a little local church, New Covenant Grace Fellowship.
    He died a few weeks ago after a two-year battle with cancer in his mouth, jaw and throat.
    His family told me Larry respected me, but we didn’t always agree on theological issues.
    One particular point of difference: “sinner” -- past or present tense.
