  • Life is full of decisions

    Life is full of decisions. Frank Borham said, “We make our decisions and then our decisions make us.” Daily we have to evaluate, decide and draw conclusions.

    The quality of your life is determined by the kind of decisions you make. Some decisions you regret making and others you feel good about. The possibility of error is always there, because we are human.

    My brother and I were blessed to have a mother who lived to age 95.

    Death is a word we desire to put in the back of our minds even though we know it is inevitable and in God’s plan. Every activity has an appointed time (Psalm 31:15).

  • Marcum revisits gig as Campbellsville Tiger

    Daniel Marcum, a 1991 LaRue County High School graduate, revealed a secret this winter to his mother, Janet Marcum, that he had kept from the time he was a student at Campbellsville University.

    “I had no idea during those years he attended school there (1993-96) that he was the Tigers' mascot,” said Janet, who lives in Buffalo. 

    “Some schools don’t mind revealing who the mascot is while others, like Campbellsville, like to keep it a secret,” said Daniel, who has served as youth minister at Columbia Baptist Church since 1998.

  • Tessie Cecil retires as New Haven mayor

    ­­After 20 years as New Haven mayor, Tessie Cecil has decided not to run for re-election. The decision was hard, she said, because being mayor is not something she takes lightly. And that is precisely the reason she feels she has to give it up.

    For the last couple of years, Cecil has been working the day shift at her full-time job, Heaven Hill Distilleries. That has kept her from being at City Hall during normal business hours, which she thinks is the most important time for a mayor to be available.
