    Scattered throughout any community are tiny, struggling churches.

    Sometimes they’re invisible. If you blink while driving past them you’ll miss them. Or they’re eyesores — run down, weather worn.

    In my 20 years covering local religion for the newspaper, I’ve gotten to know the people at some of these little churches.

    I’ve attended their services and could count the people in the pews with two hands and not need a third.

    Freddie Maggard, a former Kansas City Royals baseball player and University of Kentucky quarterback (1988-1992), spoke recently at the Christian Academy of Lawrenceburg’s middle/high school chapel service, the school announced.

    Maggard shared about putting Christ first in people’s lives and reminded the students that the choices we make as young people will affect our futures for the positive or the negative.

    He said always putting Christ first will secure a good future.

    That may be a slight exaggeration and a bit of melodrama, but the truth is I experienced severe panic recently.

    I lost my camera.

    And by “my camera” I mean the one the newspaper I work for gave me to use and not mine to keep.

    Brain twister

    A man was walking down the street and a beggar came up to him to ask for alms. The man gave him a dime and went on his way. Shortly after, a second beggar asked him for money and he gave him 15 cents.

    What time was it?

    Answer: is “A quarter to two” or 15 after 10.”
