  •  As I am writing this I believe with all of my heart the Lord is speaking to his church today:

  •  Trunk or Treat at Buffalo Baptist

  •  Senior Citizens music

  •  Kaye (Katherine Elizabeth Keyes Bondurant) and Jim (James Elliott Bondurant) celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary recently with a gathering of their family in Tennessee.

    They were married at Central Christian Church in Lexington on Aug. 31, 1952.

    They have two children.

    They were both active in community, civic and political affairs in LaRue County for more than 50 years.

    Both say they miss their friends in Kentucky.

  •  Sunday morning, Rev. Jerry Wilkinson had two reasons to celebrate.

    He has been pastor at First Baptist for 12 years and was waiting for the arrival of his granddaughter.

    While the first lady was with their daughter, Rev. Wilkinson enjoyed the anniversary that was prepared for him.

    Mary Jackson was the mistress of ceremony. The music was provided by the First Baptist Senior Choir. The presentation of flowers were done by Ola and Lanie Cobb. John Smith read the announcements and extended words of welcome to our guest speaker and wife.

  •  Jamie Reidner is proud to announce the birth of this granddaughter, Kaylee Alayna Thompson.

    Kaylee Alayna was born on Aug. 24, 2012, at Wright Patterson AFB in Dayton, Ohio. She weighed 7.9 pounds and was 20.9 inches long.

    Proud parents are Linsey and Nick Thompson.

    Grandparents are Karen and Tony Dile of Magnolia and Lisa Bell of Hodgenville. Great-grandparents are Beverly and Richard Bendick of Freeport, Ill.; Joan Gjesdahl of Palm Bay, Fla.; and Melvin and Sandy Bell of Hodgenville.

  •  Most of us have experienced distractions of one sort or another while driving, but did you know the consequences you might face if your distractions cause an accident?

    In Kentucky, all drivers are now prohibited by law from texting while driving. The law was signed in 2010.

  •  A man was asked, “When you are in your casket, family and friends are mourning over you, what would you like for them to say about you?” His reply: “Look, he’s moving.”

    This man wanted to live and that is the desire of almost everyone. Why? There are a variety of reasons but I believe God placed the desire to live within every one of us. Without that desire, we would try to end it all when situations become extremely tough.
