Perhaps he was trying to do all three.</p> <p> It was in 1974, and I was preaching a revival near Hardinsburg, Kentucky, at a church pastored by one of my seminary friends.</p> Women should be aware of heart disease http://www.hclocal.com/content/women-should-be-aware-heart-disease <p> In our society there is lot of talk about inequality between men and women, but there is one area in particular where the desparity has increased in record numbers &ndash; heart disease. Since 1984, more women than men have died from heart disease each year.</p> <p> One in three women die from heart disease, which equates to one woman every minute. Forty-three million women in the United States have cardiovascular problems and 90 percent of us have one or more risk factors for developing heart disease.</p> Diabetes, cholesterol and blood pressure — Oh, my! http://www.hclocal.com/content/diabetes-cholesterol-and-blood-pressure-%E2%80%94-oh-my <p> Jennifer Grove</p> <p> Bluegrass Drug Company</p> <p> The last couple of decades tell a &ldquo;good news, bad news&rdquo; story about diabetes. That&rsquo;s the disease that makes it tough for your body to control blood sugar. Here&rsquo;s a snapshot:</p> <p> In the last 20 years, the number of adults with diabetes has more than tripled. Nearly one in 10 now has the disease. That&rsquo;s certainly not good news.</p> Awed before God, but unafraid http://www.hclocal.com/content/awed-god-unafraid <p> The child was out of control. He had been running and shouting and climbing over pews since he had walked in the door of the church. He had come with his grandmother; and to her credit, she had tried a time or two to calm him down. It hadn&rsquo;t worked.</p> Memoir: Our family and 4-H http://www.hclocal.com/content/memoir-our-family-and-4-h <img src="http://www.hclocal.com/sites/www.hclocal.com/files/imagecache/thumb85/real_4-h_pic.jpg" alt="Submitted Photo From left to right are Janis Tingle, Bonnie Brewer, Mary Lynn Skidmore and Carol Haden.

Our father, L. C. Skidmore, Jr., was a member of the first club, started by C. C. Malone, the first County Agent of Henry County, in the mid-1920&rsquo;s.</p> <p> I (Mary Lynn) spent many Sunday mornings with my dad in his latter years and he shared a lot of his memories with me. Many of those fond memories were of his experiences in 4-H and his love of the cattle business.</p> 1838: 50 acres of land bought for $200 http://www.hclocal.com/content/1838-50-acres-land-bought-200 <p> By Hammer Smith</p> <p> &nbsp;</p> <p> 200 Years Ago</p> <p> In a will written on Oct. 8, 1813, by Michael Hesler, it is ordered that his estate be disposed in the following manner: Jacob Hesler, his brother, was to receive all of his estate after his debts and accounts were paid.

He told them, &ldquo;When you enter a town and are not received, go out in the street and say, &lsquo;The only thing we got from you is the dirt on our feet, and we&rsquo;re giving it back. Did you have any idea that God&rsquo;s kingdom was right on your doorstep?&rsquo; [Speaking to the disciples, Jesus added,] Sodom will have it better on Judgment Day than the town that rejects you&rsquo;&rdquo; (Luke 10:10-12, The Message).</p> Reigle-Hillebrandt http://www.hclocal.com/content/reigle-hillebrandt <img src="http://www.hclocal.com/sites/www.hclocal.com/files/imagecache/thumb85/engagement2.jpg" alt="" title="" align="left" hspace="6" /><p> &nbsp;Scott and Genny Reigle, announce the engagement of their daughter Allison Reigle to Anthony Hillebrandt, son of Anthony and Jennifer Hillebrandt.</p> <p> The bride-elect is employed by Michelle P.
