  • The ending was foretold in the beginning

    In the summer of 1979, I began conversations with five men — Robert Moore, Andrew Johnson, Edward Mitchell, Douglas Payton and Ben Coomes — that would ultimately lead to my serving for more than 38 years as pastor of the Eminence Baptist Church.
    The years I’ve spent in this community and with Eminence Baptist Church have blessed me and shaped me more than I have blessed or shaped the community.
    I cherish this marvelous relationship which came to an end on April 8, 2018.

  • Use this to protect your bulls from getting tetanus

    In the United States, more than 17 million bulls that range in age from one day to one year are castrated yearly.
    You should give any calf castrated with an elastrator band tetanus prevention in the form of either tetanus toxoid (two doses required with the second given two weeks prior to castration), tetanus antitoxin (given the day of banding) or both in some cases.
    Tetanus is a potentially life-threatening neurologic disease affecting all species of domestic livestock, including cattle, so it’s important for producers to take steps to prevent it.
