  • While watching an episode of All in the Family, “Edith’s Crisis of Faith,” a few nights ago, I found myself thinking about Jesus.  Funny how that happens; but why shouldn’t Jesus show up in a sitcom?  Back in the day, he certainly showed up in lots of places considered odd by those who knew how a Messiah should act and with whom he should be found.

    An excellent, noted carpenter, Will Tingle — a board member and deacon of the church — remodeled the chapel in 1926. When you look at the steeple at the front of the chapel, you would see what a superb builder he was. The hand carved circle, which was centered on this masterpiece proudly displayed these words, Drennon Springs Chapel — 1862.

  • 200 Years Ago

    Poindexter Thompson filed a claim for $9 with the Henry County Court for his services as a patroller.  Patrollers were appointed by the Court to serve as sentries or watchmen who were assigned for service in specific districts of the county.

    On July 17, 1811, Adam Cokendofer and Samuel Rice, his surety, posted a bond of 30 pounds for a license for Adam to marry Kitturah Rice. As Kitturah was under the age of 21 her father, William Rice, gave his signed consent for the marriage. 

  • July, 1951

    In spite of threatening skies and weather reports of showers and humidity, the largest crowd in history turned out Wednesday for the 50th Annual I.O.O.F. Picnic and Henry County Home-Coming at the I.O.O.F. Park near Eminence.

    The crowd was slow to gather in comparison to 20 years before. The executive committee secretary, Carl Wade, reported late in the afternoon that 200 more adult tickets had been sold this year than in the history of the celebration.

  • The recent grant of $2.5 million to Henry, Shelby and Bullitt Counties has shone a light on the problem of diabetes in our area. These counties have a multi-million dollar grant over the next few years because they have a significantly higher incidence of diabetes. That may seem like a huge amount, until you recognize that the cost of medical care and lost productivity for diabetes in Kentucky is more than $2 billion annually.

  • Sharon Potts is one of six siblings. Five of those siblings have diabetes.
    “I’ve had it for 15 years,” she said. “I hate taking medications and I’ve been insulin dependent for five years.”

    I sometimes forget how many years I’ve lived (a nice way of saying I sometimes forget how old I am).  Whenever my mind starts recalling old songs, I’m reminded.

    As a child, I loved sitting in the living room listening to my mom’s records.  You remember records, don’t you?  They were round discs made of vinyl.  You placed a disc on a turntable, gently placed the stylus arm down onto the disc, and there was music—beautiful stereophonic music. 

  • Melvin Rowe, artist and creator of Louisville’s Pottery Rowe, has been shaping his world in clay since 1971.

    But this will be his first year to go medieval in Henry County.

    During a phone interview, Rowe said he was working on shaping clay into a two-and-a-half inch clay dragon that will slither up the side of a drinking mug to be peddled at the Kentucky Renaissance Faire this summer. Gargoyles and castles are not far behind.

  • We often hear the term “wellness” and think “healthy” or lack of illness.
    Much study and research has been done in recent decades in the subject of wellness. We now know that wellness means much more than simply a lack of disease. It means to thrive in your life on a variety of levels.

  • I grew up in a small town where my family doctor delivered me and knew all about my interests, my grades and even the sports I played.

  • Many people my age (which if you have to ask, you’re not there yet) probably can agree on one thing.

    It’s hard to know which is more uncomfortable - preparing for a colonoscopy or talking to the doctor about why you think you need one.

    General opinion holds that the procedure itself is the easiest part - owing to the likelihood of extreme sedation.
