    The Iceman Cometh

    The Iceman, the Snowman, the Zerotemp man cometh to Henry County over and over again during the last few months. Incredibly beautiful pictures of the stark white landscape only served to bring complaints of power outages, frozen water pipes, missed school days. The list goes on and on. Since we choose to live in a rural area, with all the advantages it has to offer, sometimes the disadvantages get the better of us.

  • Child’s insight not far from teaching

    Pastor, Eminence Baptist Church

    Like Donna and I have done, Gerry and Julie Claybrook have spent their adult lives in ministry. Julie saw one of my recent Facebook posts and easily discerned that I would be using the Lord’s Prayer as the central part of an upcoming sermon. She promptly sent me the following message:

  • Use caution with testosterone treatment
  • Keeping kids safe when it comes to accessible family medications

  • Which Jesus are we following?

    Since the beginning of February, I’ve been preaching my way through Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount as recorded in Matthew 5-7. The sermons have caused me grief. Jesus has high expectations. The sermons have also caused some grief for my church members.

  • Budget still remains legislators’ biggest task

    As we near the end of February, the General Assembly has a predictably full agenda heading into what is always its busiest month of the year.

    Enacting a budget to run state government remains our biggest task. The House’s Appropriations and Revenue Committee is right on schedule, however, with its seven budget review subcommittees close to finishing their modifications of Governor Beshear’s proposal. A vote by the full chamber will be by early March.

  • Hard decision: Being mom to momma dog

    Anyone who knows me knows that I love my dogs as if they were my children.

    Troy and I have owned dogs all our lives and have rarely been without at least one dog at home to greet us after a long day’s work. Being a pet owner is one of the joys in my life, but it can also bring heartbreak.

  • 1889: Cook gets rights to spirituous liquor

    On March 14, 1814, William Stephenson and Elias Dejarnette, his surety, posted a bond of 50 pounds in order for Stephenson and Peggy Troutman to secure a marriage license. Peggy was the daughter of Peter Troutman, who signed a parental consent form.

    The marriage was officiated on March 19, 1814, by the Rev. Alan Mcguire, Minister of the Gospel.
