  • Finding joy

    Joy is not automatic. It is a choice we make. We must be intentional about listening, believing, receiving, seeking, and then remaining in joy. By nature we default to despair, discouragement, distrust, and depression. How did your Christmas go? How did your 2017 go? Did you find joy? If not, do you want to? If so, do you want more joy in 2018? Here are a few tips from God on finding joy in our short-lived lives!

    “Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people.” Luke 2:10

  • Wise men - Then and now

    There are so many questions about the wise men who journeyed to see the newborn King --- who were they?  From where did they come?  How did they know to follow the star?  How many were there?

    Thought for the week: Happy are those who take life day by day, complain very little, and are thankful for the little things in life.

  • LETTER: Food waste

    Dear Editor,

    We have a problem. Do you know how much food is wasted and how many children fall asleep hungry? Recently we learned that the world is capable of producing more than enough food to feed everyone, yet some people are going hungry in the world. With the holidays coming up there is so much attention to food. That is why I am writing to inform you about food waste and how to prevent it. Food waste is America’s biggest food problem and it needs to be solved. Hopefully, by the end you will be making a list and organizing your pantry.

  • Do you need assistance with your heating costs?

    Beginning January 8, 2018, your local Community Action Office will be assisting families of low-income with the LIHEAP CRISIS Program. The program will end March 31, 2018 or sooner if funds are expended.

    To be eligible for Crisis funds you must be in a heating crisis.  You must have a past due/disconnect notice from the electric or natural gas company, or be out of bulk fuel within 4 days if using propane, fuel oil or kerosene, or wood, or a formal eviction notice from your landlord if heating expenses are included in the rent.

  • Amphitheatre closed at My Old Kentucky Home State Park

    The amphitheatre at My Old Kentucky Home State Park is closed because of electrical and structural issues. An inspection conducted this week by the Kentucky Department of Parks determined that the stage area is not safe for employees or park guests.
