    April 26, 1962
    Approximately 100 alumni and friends at Western High School met in the school cafeteria for their annual alumni banquet.
    Since 1929 when Western held the first commencement, there had been a continuous growth in enrollment and many of her students have become college graduates. Many fields of endeavor claim the alumni of Western High School.
    Among those attending the banquet were:

  • Tim and Natalie Norton of Lawrenceburg announce the engagement of their daughter, Heather Alyse Norton, to Kyle Scott Watkins, son of Kenny and Tammy Watkins of Loyall.
    Grandparents of the bride are Nancy and the late Ralph Bowen of Lawrenceburg and the late Frank and Marietta Norton of Frankfort.
    Grandparents of the groom are Zane and Gale Fraker of Needmore, Pa., and Robert and the late Beulah Watkins of Loyall.

  • In response to my column two weeks ago regarding the authenticity of the Bible, I received an email from a reader.
    I always welcome emails from my readers, of course. This particular reader made claims that the Bible was actually property of the Catholic Church. The reader went on to elaborate that per the Catholic Church, the Bible was not the only writings of Christianity.
    Finally, my correspondent said we know this to be true since the Roman Catholic Church says so.
    Now, not to pick at other religions, but this doesn’t hold water for me.

  • John and Ada Bailey will celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary with a reception hosted by their children and grandchildren on April 22 from 2-4 p.m. at Sand Spring Baptist Church, 1616 Harrodsburg Road.
