  • The Kentucky State Fair The best agriculture on display

    The Kentucky State Fair is one of the highlights of the agricultural year in Kentucky. As a farm kid from Scott County, I have many fond memories of past state fairs. It’s a chance to rub elbows with our neighbors, reunite with friends from across the Commonwealth, and show off the best that Kentucky agriculture has to offer. The 113th edition of this great tradition is Aug. 17-27, and, as always, the Kentucky Department of Agriculture (KDA) is pleased to be a part of it.

  • Hatred, bitterness

    Have you ever noticed how much hatred and bitterness fills our world? How easy it is to hold onto anger and resentment? Oftentimes I think we feel ourselves more forgiving than we really are. I recently looked up the definitions for some of these terms, and here is what I found:

    Forgive - to stop feeling angry or resentful toward (someone) for an offense, flaw, or mistake; to cancel (a debt)

    Hate - to feel intense or passionate dislike

    Bitterness - anger and disappointment at being treated unfairly; resentment

  • Put in, take out

    Jesus attended a wedding in Cana.  His mother and disciples were also present.  A wedding was an event where most of the community took part.  The wedding feast and ceremony were usually held the same evening.  The couple was escorted through the streets to their home with as many as possible participating.  The wedding couple instead of going on a honeymoon would have open house for a week and entertain in their wedding clothes.

  • Advice to Millennials on managing Credit and Debt

    Got debt? You’re not alone. The Federal Reserve Bank of New York released a report recently that U.S. household debt—which includes home mortgages and home equity loans, credit card debt, auto loans and student debt—stood at $12.73 trillion in the first quarter of 2017. That’s a staggering amount, and surpasses the previous record set during the 2008 recession. The Fed also reported that 44 million Americans share a piece of over 1.34 trillion dollars’ worth of student loan debt. The majority of student debt holders are now over 30 years old.

    Thought for the week: Sometimes, no matter how nice you are, how kind you are, how caring you are or how loving you are, it just isn’t enough for some people.

    Last Saturday was the annual Cobb Family Reunion. This is an annual event open to the community. The 137th Church Anniversary/Homecoming was a big success. It was a reunion with Reverend Aaron Moss, Sr., former pastor of Lane Lincoln CME Church, and First Baptist. It was a great homecoming indeed.

    Thought for Today: Pray not only because you need something but because you have a lot to thank God for!
