  • Body found on I-65 identified

    Nearly a month after a woman’s body was found off Interstate 65 in Hardin County, authorities have identified her as Madiha E. Roshdy Hafzalla, 27, of Nashville, Tenn.

    An Egyptian national, she was discovered May 29 by crews mowing off the northbound lanes of I-65 near the 99-mile marker.

    The body bore signs of head trauma, investigators said, and likely had been left by the side of the road several days before it was discovered. Authorities released photos of some of the woman’s clothing and jewelry hoping to prompt tips from the public.

  • Jamboree: Music is an opportunity to share faith

    “Loving God, loving each other,
    Making music with my friends;
    Loving God, loving each other,
    And the story never ends.”

    The above Gaither Vocal Band lyrics pretty much sum up my 46 years as a keyboardist and singer at the Lincoln Jamboree.

    It is something I love to do – getting to witness through singing gospel songs; getting to make music with some of the most talented entertainers; and getting paid to do it.

  • Stay strong, America

    America’s strength – where is it to be found?

    The answer is given in scripture. “Righteousness exalteth a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people.” (Proverbs 14:34) Righteousness is a moral uprightness and social justice. “Reproach” means “to bend low” in shame, in disgrace or in ultimate downfall.
