  • The world has seen some dark days, but the darkest was the day Jesus Christ was crucified. His body was removed from the cross by two friends and placed in Joseph’s tomb. Early in the morning, some of his followers went to the tomb to complete the earlier preparing of His body for burial. To their amazement they found the stone rolled away and were told by an angel that Jesus was alive.

  • “Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord.”

    Revelation 4:1;

    I Thessalonians 4:13-18

    The words “caught up” together with “them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air” refers to what has more recently become known as the Rapture. Although no one knows exactly when this event will take place, the time is coming when believers will be caught up in the air to meet the Lord.

  • Tobacco growers soon will prepare greenhouses and outdoor float beds and start producing tobacco transplants. For those able to obtain contracts, higher production and input costs and lower tobacco leaf prices are among the problems faced by tobacco producers.

    Losses to disease in the float system could take an additional toll on a growers’ bottom line. Planning and preparation now can lead to better disease control and better yields of transplants in the spring.

  • Campbellsville University graduate student and Louisville native Matt Hodge, along with CU’s Chamber Choir, visited the State Capitol recently to perform for the governor and Congress, and to be recognized for their success.

Steve Beshear and the Kentucky Senate and House of Representatives.
