  •  In an attempt to look younger, many are having facelifts. Some are going overboard. The skin on their face is drawn so tightly it is difficult for them to smile.

    We cannot stop the aging process, but we can grow stronger inwardly. Paul says in 2 Corinthians 4:16, “Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day.” We may never get a facelift, but we can get a “faith-lift.”

  •   Relay for Life – 

    Mr. Gatti’s donation

    Freedom Angels will hold a Mr. Gatti’s fundraiser 11 a.m.-8 p.m. Jan. 14. Mr. Gatti’s, 803 N. Mulberry, Elizabethtown, will donate 20 percent of the meal profit to this Relay for Life team. 

  •  United Way of Central Kentucky opened the doors to its new home at 604 North Main Street in Elizabethtown during an open house and ribbon cutting Dec. 17.  

    Local businessman and United Way of Central Kentucky Board Member, Kevin Addington, purchased the historic Kerrick House during an auction in 2013. He renovated the space, building on an addition while preserving the history of the original structure which was built in 1894.  

  •  South Fork Baptist Church has reason to celebrate. After 15 years of paying on construction costs, they are finally debt-free. Their current church building, which they’ve occupied since 1999, was dedicated on Jan. 4 during a special celebratory service.

    The church, one of the oldest in the county at more than 230 years old, paid more than $259,000 toward their building in 2014 alone. According to Missions Director Machelle McDowell, it’s been a long time coming, but it’s been worth it.

  • Even with the best intentions, it’s too common: People rack up debt during the holidays. If you have some holiday debt, chances are that you want to get rid of that debt as soon as possible.

    First, stop using your credit card to make more charges. But don’t close any longstanding accounts with a positive payment history as that can hurt your credit scores. You don’t want to put other areas of your finances at risk, so keep paying on any secured debt such as for a car or home or student loans.

  • This time of year, most of us are busy buying gifts, making plans, and celebrating with family. Two years ago, Kenedy Maze and her family were just trying to make it through the holidays alive.

    Kenedy, of Fleming County was missing a lot. She missed her friends because she was not allowed to go to school due to the advancing Cystic Fibrosis disease taking over her lungs. She missed being able to run and play because she was now tethered to 6 liters of oxygen just to breathe. She missed her sister, Kaylee, who lost her fight against CF in 2007.
