  • COLUMN: Tebow talk a refreshing change

    This year, I don’t think I will have to worry too much about people forgetting Jesus Christ during Christmas season.

    Tim Tebow has taken care of that.

    Or more specifically, the reactions of misguided souls who are curiously offended by his open profession of his Christian faith have made sure sports fans are talking about Christ at Christmas.

    Unfortunately, that talk says a lot about us as people, no matter what one thinks of how Tim Tebow chooses to live what he believes.

    Anderson County's boys pulled away in the second half while the Lady Bearcats cruised in a doubleheader sweep in high school basketball action Friday night at Shelby County.

    The Bearcats improved to 4-0, opening some daylight in the third quarter then pulling away in the fourth quarter for an 87-77 win over the pesky Rockets.

    Jay Smith scored 13 of his game-high 23 points in the final two minutes to seal the win. Smith hit 11-of-12 free throws to keep Shelby at bay.

  • Collision on US 127 causes diesel spill

    A pick-up truck and an 18-wheeler collided at the intersection of US 127 and Glensboro Road near Walmart on Wednesday afternoon, causing a diesel spill that stopped east and westbound traffic on Glensboro Road.

    State Trooper Harris said the accident happened when the female driver of the pick-up failed to yield the right of way to the southbound semi.

  • Closer to the sky, closer to God

    One of the most neglected symbols of the church is the empty tomb.
    With the launch sequence of Christmas already counting down, we are familiarized again with the symbols of: the manger, the shepherds, the wise men, the angels, etc. Then there’s the reason Jesus Christ came into this world: the cross.
    Where would we be without the empty tomb? It is our symbol of victory. I Corinthians 15:16 reminds us: “If Christ be not raised, your faith is vain; you are yet in your sins (KJV).”
