    It will be interesting to see how the Dollar General Store proposal in northern Harrison County plays out.
    Last week the Cynthiana-Harrison County-Berry Joint Planning Commission denied a request to grant a zoning change that would allow the small business to be located on the corner of US 27 and Blackburn Lane.
    The commission’s reasoning is that those who requested the zoning change failed to provide solid evidence that a zoning change would provide a positive economic impact for the county.

  • Talk about a Royal Wedding...

    As I write this, I am preparing to head out of town, heading south for about 10 hours to see my eldest daughter get married.
    I really like weddings. Not enough to get up at 5 a.m. to watch one that took place in England recently, but I have been to a few since I often have the privilege to officiate at them and I have grown quite fond of them.
    It’s not the romance or pageantry or the beauty of the bride that causes me to like them. I have been a pastor and married long enough to know that marriage is as difficult as it can be wonderful.

  • Grace Notes

    A number of years ago I wrote a story about a man who was as lost as a soul could be.
    When I met him, he was a pastor, although he didn’t look like a typical pastor, if there is such a thing.
    I remember his shaved head and “ROUGH” tattooed across the back of his neck. I also remember thinking he was one scary looking dude.
    His wasn’t a sanitized, heartwarming story, although it started out that way.
