  • He is on the way

    The countdown started some weeks ago – the excitement, the preparations, the lights and decorations. Many people are anticipating this special event.

    All of this for what? Santa Claus is coming to town. For many this is very important, but others think about the coming of One not from the North Pole and riding on a sleigh, but coming on clouds of the sky.

    Nations all over the world are awaiting his coming. His arrival will fulfill prophecies hundreds of years old. He will bring gifts, but they will not be based upon goodness, but upon grace.

  • Holiday marks change, growth

    Thanksgiving is an oft-forgotten holiday. It’s sandwiched right between Halloween and Christmas, the two most marketed, celebrated holidays of the year, and generally, we don’t get or give presents on Thanksgiving. The gift of this holiday is time.

    Time with family, time to stop and reflect on what we have and time to slow down and eat a meal with those we may not see very often.

  • Scientist’s goof created cooking history

    If you prepared a home-cooked meal at Thanksgiving, the chances are good that you had help from CorningWare.

    Chances are great that you received that sturdy, do-it-all cookware as a wedding gift – or handed down from your mom. There are skillets, cake pans, casserole dishes, coffee pots, grab-it bowls (my favorites) and pie plates. Most can go from the refrigerator straight to the oven. Just try to break one. It’s nearly impossible.

  • Sunrise Volunteers to adopt a resident for holidays

    The Sunrise Volunteers had an executive board meeting on Nov. 11.

    A few new members were installed. Treasurer – Peggy Edwards; Assistant Treasurer – Kay Gunter; and Historian – Elvon Skaggs.

    Welcome, ladies.

    We decided to “adopt a resident for the holidays” in which a volunteer will spend time with a resident over the holidays. Many residents have no family to visit them and they will be happy to know someone cares for them.

  • Kentucky Senate Republicans choose new leadership team

    Kentucky Senate Republicans last week chose two new faces to lead them for the next two years.

    In a meeting behind closed doors in the Capitol Annex, they elected David Givens, who runs a farm supply business in Greensburg, for the chamber’s No. 2 position of president pro tem, and Jimmy Higdon, a Lebanon grocer, to be majority whip.

    Retaining their leadership positions were Senate President Robert Stivers of Manchester, Majority Floor Leader Damon Thayer of Georgetown and Majority Caucus Chairman Dan Seum of Louisville.

  • Bucket brigade saves farm equipment, truck

    A LaRue County farmer lost two rolls of hay to fire recently.

    Wayne Graham was transporting the hay on a wagon – pulled by a pickup truck – on Ky. 84. The wheel came off the hay wagon, according to LaRue County Fire Chief Jason Sadler.

    Graham attempted to pull the truck off the roadway. Sparks “from the wheel falling off set a couple of rolls of hay on fire,” said Sadler.
