  • Scoring mark falls, but Magnolia man still all over Kentucky record books

    Records are made to be broken, the old saying goes.

     “A lot of those itinerant pastors traveled on horseback,” said the 25-year-old minister from India. “I’m so glad that I have a car.”

    Pastor of Wesley Meadows Methodist Church since 2004, Singh sees the addition of Levelwoods Methodist Church as an opportunity and a blessing.

    “God has expanded my ministry, allowing me to meet, serve, and be blessed by another group of people,” he explained.

  • Memorial Building featured on ornament

    The Lincoln Museum’s annual collectible Christmas ornament continues the Lincoln Bicentennial theme.

    The white ornament, seventh in a series of eight, features the Memorial Building that houses the traditional birth cabin at the Abraham Lincoln Birthplace National Historic Park. The photo was taken by a park employee during a February snow.

    An ill-timed ice storm canceled the Lincoln Bicentennial celebration at the park Feb. 12, but staff commemorated the 200th birthday of the 16th president despite the weather. The ceremony was moved to LaRue County High School.
