    Our deepest sympathy goes to the family of Elder Joseph Payne who passed away last Wednesday. He was the pastor of Eunice Church of God in Columbia. His Homegoing Celebration was last Wednesday morning at Eunice Church of God. He and his congregation had a close bond with one another. First Baptist visited Eunice Church of God every year on the third Sunday in September for their Friendship Day. One of their members Carolyn Payne Cox is married to one of our deacons, Robert “Bobby” Cox. Both churches are like one big “Happy Family.”

    Thought for the week: Note to self, I am allowed to cry. I am allowed to scream. But, I am not allowed to give up. It will all get done somehow. Just Breathe.

    How awesome that we have two LaRue County residents that will be on the TV show Cake Wars, Sarah Anthony of Sugar Fashion Cakes and her sister Katie Roberts.
