  • Set your priorities on God’s level

    Getting to know God in a personal way should be our greatest priority in life. If we plan to spend eternity with him, then it would seem like a good thing to get to know him now. And it may be later than you think.

    We are here today and gone tomorrow. Realizing how quickly life goes by is a good priority to have. James said our life is like a vapor (4:14). We must then have our priorities right. We only get one chance at life on this earth. The poet said, “Only one life, ’twill soon be past.”

  • McDougal Lake has new entrance, boat ramp

    City-owned McDougal Lake has a new look – and a new entrance.

    The lake’s access road on Ky. 470 was closed after residents began dumping storm debris on it earlier this year. Four-wheel drive vehicles churned up the dirt road, making it nearly impassable. Hanging limbs known as “widow makers” made the area unsafe.

    The new entrance on Stiles Ford Road (Ky. 916) is about a mile from the old entrance. The city has been working on the gravel road and a boat ramp to the 91-acre lake for about a month.
