  • Lincoln Park’s People’s Garden is in full bloom for 2013 harvest

    Local volunteers planted the People’s Garden – located next to the picnic area of the Abraham Lincoln Birthplace National Historic Park – on May 31.

    Steve Meredith, who came up with the idea, said he has a personal interest in the garden as he grew up near the area and is a long time fan of Lincoln.

    “I had a conversation with the Secretary of Agriculture, Tom Vilsack, about the project at the National FFA Convention a couple of years ago and started working on getting the garden together,” said Meredith.

  • Beliefs make a difference

    Our beliefs are very important for they control our lives and our destinies.  Paul says they are responsible for changing us from the kingdom of darkness to the kingdom of light (Colossians 1:13-14). He goes ahead to say that our beliefs make a difference in the way we live (Colossians 3:1-17). Because we believe in Christ there are things which are to be put out of our daily lives and other things which are to be included.

    Belief in God’s love for us changes us for time and eternity. “For God so loved …” (John 3:16)

  • Pipeline wants to know who, what, where and why

    Thursday’s open house hosted by Williams and Boardwalk Pipeline Partners was interesting. There was some protesting done by singing nuns (you’ve got to love singing nuns) who offered a bit of distraction, and others carrying signs.

    There is a lot of vocal opposition to the pipeline, which, if built, will carry highly toxic and flammable chemicals, right under LaRue County. The company is trying to obtain easements from property owners so they can have the pipeline operational by 2015.
