  • Some Lawrenceburg residents will celebrate New Year’s Eve in a way most wouldn’t suspect.

    While others toot noisemakers, wear pointy hats and consume adult beverages, this group will begin reading the Bible at the stroke of midnight and continue for several days.

    “We’ll start reading with the first verse in Genesis to the last verse in Revelations,” said Lisa Owens, president of the Anderson County chapter of Awakening Ministries of Kentucky.

  • Got a note from Willanna Young about the storm photo on the Way page Dec. 2.

    She said it gave her chillls. “Jimmy and I had just bought and moved into this house here on Court Street the week of Thanksgiving of 1964. I so clearly remember the rain and the wind. Like nothing I had ever heard before,” she said.

    A huge pine tree was damaged in their yard and took the back off their roof. “I know the children were scared to death.,” she wrote.

  • If Christmas is a time of joy, laughter and worship, there should be plenty of the spirit of the season going around Sunday at Sand Spring Baptist Church.

    Tornado hits Anderson County

    A corridor of wind and rain classified as a tornado, swept through Lawrenceburg shortly past midnight Friday, leaving in it’s wake property damage expected to reach near $500,000. Only four people were reported injured.

    The tornado, moving west to east through town, apparently broke up when it reached the Kentucky River. Damage was mainly in the downtown section, although the storm ripped property within a three-mile radius of Main Street.

  • I’m currently reading “A Million Miles in a Thousand Years” by Don Miller.

    He wrote “Blue Like Jazz,” which continues to be the best Christian book I’ve ever read, although not for its literary merit. The book is random and messy, but Miller’s thoughts are raw and profound.

    His new book begins with a movie producer wanting to turn “Blue Like Jazz” into a movie, but he tells Miller that the book as is wouldn’t make a compelling or interesting movie because his real life is boring.
