    The couple was married at the historic Old Stone Presbyterian Church in Lewisburg, West Virginia on November 4, 1944.  They have one son, Charles, married to Patricia Trumbo Prewitt, and two grand-daughters, Lee and Elizabeth.

  • Joe Durbin, director of the Henry County Help Center, presented the Volunteer of the Quarter Award to Debra Fisher (center) recently, as Rev. Jean Hawxhurst, the Frankfort district superintendent for the Methodist churches, looks on.

  • Berea Christian Church Disciples of Christ Pastor Barbara Minton said the church’s 175th anniversary held Oct. 19 was a big success. “Good food, good conversation, good weather — what more could we ask for?” she said.  “We gathered for the various events with former members, former pastors, as well as friends and pastors from other congregations.  Several came from quite a distance and others from the immediate community.  In short, we experienced a blessed time in our little congregation.”

    As I look back on my years with the Chamber, I am always amazed at the changes that have taken place.  

    One of the best happenings is the new community center in downtown Campbellsburg.

    “You sure do have a lot of doubts for a man who is supposed to be a preacher.”

    I never knew if the man who said that was upset with me, surprised, or trying to give me a nudge toward not pursuing ministry. Perhaps he was trying to do all three.

  • 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 – heart disease. Since 1984, more women than men have died from heart disease each year.

    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.

    The last couple of decades tell a “good news, bad news” story about diabetes. That’s the disease that makes it tough for your body to control blood sugar. Here’s a snapshot:

    In the last 20 years, the number of adults with diabetes has more than tripled. Nearly one in 10 now has the disease. That’s certainly not good news.

  • When Jesus sent his disciples out to share his story, he anticipated their not being welcomed everywhere they went. He told them, “When you enter a town and are not received, go out in the street and say, ‘The only thing we got from you is the dirt on our feet, and we’re giving it back. Did you have any idea that God’s kingdom was right on your doorstep?’ [Speaking to the disciples, Jesus added,] Sodom will have it better on Judgment Day than the town that rejects you’” (Luke 10:10-12, The Message).

  • 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’t worked.
