  • Bees swarm Pike Street door Saturday

    Becky Barnes,

    It wasn’t the biggest swarm of bees that Jessica Barnes and Matthew Brown have ever caught, but still it yielded a few thousand honey bees.
    The brother-sister duo have about 16 hives between them, so an urgent call to remove the swarm from the front window of Kelli Mulberry’s Pike Street office, was fairly routine.
    Barnes said it took about 30 minutes to capture the swarm, which they did by brushing the bees into two five-gallon buckets.

  • Sweet potatoes, one of nature’s perfect foods

    We enjoyed sweet potatoes all winter long from a fantastic harvest last fall.  In fact, I still have a crate full in the basement that will feed us this summer. I planted out about 25 organic slips purchased from Country Corner Greenhouse in Shepherdsville in late May and by early November we had 4 nursery crates full of one of nature’s perfect foods!  7 months and counting in storage with no spoilage is impressive.

  • Evangelism...tell what He has done for you

    Many people know the story of Jonah and the whale and that God told Jonah to go to Nineveh and preach.
    Nineveh turned away from Nisroch, the god of the Assyrians and turned toward Yahweh, the god of Israel.
    Imagine watching Jonah walk the gangplank gaining permission to board the ship, pay his fare and find a dark quiet place in the bottom floor of the ship. He lacked emotions.
    He had set his heart to rebel against Yahweh, his god, and against Yahweh’s apparent love for the people of Nineveh, the capital of Assyria.

  • Grace Notes

    My pastor tells the story about his son needing spine surgery when he was just a young boy.
    He tells about bringing his son to the hospital and the agony of letting go of his boy, handing him over to the surgeons.
    It was a terrible surgery, he says, and they were so relieved when it was over.
    However, shortly after they had come home from the hospital, the doctor called -- they missed something and had to redo the surgery.
