  • Charleston victims and families demonstrate real Christianity

    We saw evil personified last week.

    Maybe you didn’t see it in flesh and blood, unless you were in Charleston, South Carolina, but we saw the photos and videos. We couldn’t miss Dylann Roof’s mop haircut and glazed eyes in the daily papers and in the national news.

    We should have been heartbroken. Nine people went to their church for Bible study and never came home. Their ages ranged from 26 to 87.

    With his 8-month-old grandson in his arms, Lawrenceburg resident Tommy Wise was forced to hunker down beside his car as portions of a daycare center’s roof blew past him last Thursday evening.

  • Feeding Pharoah

    Frank Tinsley was feeding an eventual Triple Crown winner and didn’t even know it.

    He does now and is mighty proud of the fact that food created at Anderson County Farm Service fed the mighty American Pharoah for nearly a year.

    “Someone said we should hang a banner on the front of the building,” Tinsely said last week. “I’m definitely proud but don’t really like to toot my own horn.”

  • New care standards for diabetes

    Diabetes affects over 29 million Americans. It is a condition in which the body does not properly process food for use as energy.

    Most of the food we eat is turned into glucose, which our bodies use for energy.

    The pancreas makes a hormone called insulin to help glucose get into the cells of the body. When you have diabetes, the body either doesn’t make enough insulin or the cells can’t effectively use the insulin that is made. When there is insufficient insulin, blood glucose levels become high.

  • Garlic, onions make potent bug repellant

    It’s officially summer. I don’t even need a calendar because I can spot that blue chicory and those orange lilies along the sides of the road, my personal harbingers. Evening skies glow with lightening bugs flashing gold like dust motes in the sunshine. Just driving to work, through the winding green canopy, is a treasure for the eyes. Man, I love this season.
