  • COLUMN: Accept the gift of Christ

    The message of Easter is that Jesus conquered sin and death and rose again. The result is that we have the promise of eternal life in a perfect environment.

    This is important because of our heritage. We are descendants of Adam and Eve. They were created in the image of God to live forever. But this changed when they sinned. They started to grow old and to wonder, "What happens after I die?"

  • Buttercup in pastures: An unwanted sign of spring

     One of the signs of spring is the yellow flowers that emerge from buttercup plants in pastures and unplanted grain cropland. While buttercup poses little problems to grain crop yields, it can be an issue in pastures.

    Buttercups tend to thrive in low areas of fields, generally in soils that remain wet long periods of time and in fields with poor stands of desirable forages.  In fact, many pasture fields that have heavy buttercup populations are fields that are heavily grazed by livestock.

  • COLUMN: I love him because he first loved me

     Mel Gibson’s movie, The Passion of Christ, covered the last 12 hours of Jesus’ earthly life. It is not a movie I would watch for entertainment value, but I would watch it for love value.

    For God so loved the world that He gave His only Son …” (John 3:16).

    God gave Jesus because He loved us. The trial and death of Jesus shows us how much he loved us.

    Jesus came to die on the cross for our sin. Though we were not there 2,000 years ago, our sins killed Jesus just the same.

  • COLUMN: Be like 'chicken fat' - set an example

     In the mid ‘60s when I was in junior high, I was part of LaRue County School’s Physical Fitness team. We were one of the first school districts to embrace President Kennedy’s push for exercise and physical education in schools.

    We would travel throughout our region performing at PTO meetings and even appeared on a Louisville TV station demonstrating a variety of exercises from gymnastics to basic exercise moves. The familiar exercises of today were unheard of and the whole concept of P.E. was in its infancy.
