  • There is a great story about a man that had many sheep. His sheep were thriving and healthy except for one big problem. His property was also occupied by many coyotes that had developed a taste for sheep.

    Now the man thought of all his options. He could get a gun and kill the coyotes. This would help the sheep, but not so good for the coyotes. He could trap the coyotes, and put them in cages, but that wouldn’t change the coyotes. They would just be trapped and at the first opportunity if released, they are going for some lamb chops.

  • Next week is the beginning of another school year. For those of you with school age children, you know it’s both exciting and stressful. I’m already thinking about the morning struggle, what to pack for lunch, and the best way to get a 17 and a 6-year-old out of bed. Neither one likes to eat breakfast when they get up. I’ve read a bunch of articles on ways to make the rough mornings go smoother, and I think I’m going to try a few. Let’s hope the full moon on Monday is a positive influence.

    The inability of two men to get a car up a steep hill on the cliffs of the Kentucky River out toward Lock Five led to the discovery of what was a moonshine still and 52 barrels of mash and a stolen car.

    The recovery of the stolen car came about when a group of young men, who were camping near the Jessie May Lillard Camp, saw two men trying to get a car up the steep hill with little success.

  • If you have attended Church or read the Bible much at all, you likely know the story of “the rich, young ruler.” Matt. 10:17-22 “As Jesus was setting out on a journey, a man ran up to Him, and knelt before Him, and asked Him, ‘Good teacher, what must I do to inherit eternal life?’ And Jesus said to him, ‘Why do you call me good? No one is good, except God alone.

  • Activities planned at Pigeon Fork Baptist

    Pigeon Fork Baptist Church will host a community “Bridge” event at the Waddy Ruritan Club on Friday, Aug. 4, from 7 to 9 pm.

    Come hear gospel and country groups sing, grab a hot dog or some popcorn, try out the inflatable obstacle course, play washers, corn toss, and ladder toss, or just enjoy fellowship with your neighbors, organizers said in a news release.

    On Saturday, Aug. 5, Revival will begin at 7 p.m., led by Ron Aldridge, following by a “pizza pig-out.”

  • I’m sure most of you knew it was National Ice Cream Day, but did you know it was National blueberry month also?

    This superfood is low in calories and incredibly healthy. Eating blueberries may benefit heart and brain health, as well as help regulate blood sugar levels.

    Blueberries are an excellent source of several vitamins, beneficial plant compounds and antioxidants. Several studies indicate that blueberries may lower blood sugar levels and improve insulin sensitivity.

    A man in a car containing four occupants was injured Saturday night at the Tyrone bridge when struck by a bullet, shot by the toll collector, William Cox.

    Cox, of Lawrenceburg, and others were slightly cut when the driver stopped the car so suddenly that they were thrown through the windshield. The four men passed the toll house and started across the bridge without paying the toll.

  • I read a tweet this week that stated “Liberalism, where a man can become a woman, but not a Christian.” It would be humorous if it weren’t true.

    Did you know that the House of Representatives in the U.S. Congress voted this past week to continue to fund sex changes and gender reassignment hormone treatment in the U.S. Military?
