    From staff reports

    Located at 209 East Woodford St. behind Scott Brown Karate School, the church is an independent and fundamental group that uses the King James Bible.

    Congregants practice a traditional style of worship and “aim to evangelize the gospel to the unchurched, strengthen and help the dissatisfied members of the community that are not going to church,” according to Pastor Nathan Mowery.

  • Facebook post no reflection on sheriff

    Column as I see ’em …

    Aside from a couple of Kentucky Sheriffs Association banquets, I’ve never had dinner with Sheriff Troy Young.

    Not at a restaurant. Not at either of our homes, and we’re practically neighbors.

    Nor have I had dinner with any of his roster of deputies.

    Oh, sure, I’ve spent countless hours with those folks at wrecks, crime scenes and the like, but as for having personal friendships or relationships, that’s not really possible, given what I do for a living.

  • Children can be gardeners for life

    Jeez-o-pete this summer is going by fast. I continually have to remind myself that summer temperatures stay with us through September.

    All those years of teaching trained me to think August was the end of summer, because school started so early. I still believe they should wait until after Labor Day, though I’m positive some parents wouldn’t agree.

  • ‘Summer slump’ is a sign of fescue toxicosis

    Tall fescue is a popular grass for Kentucky pastures for many reasons — it is hardy and tolerates drought, has a root system that aids in controlling erosion and can stand up to heavy grazing.

    Farmers can even stockpile it for winter grazing. However, an endophyte fungus that commonly infects the plant can affect livestock. Summertime tends to be peak time for fungus-related problems.

  • The melting pot is boiling

    The world lately has become a pretty scary mess.

    A gay nightclub in Orlando gets held hostage by a terrorist who killed 49 and wounded 53 people in the deadliest mass shooting by a single gunman in American history. It was also the deadliest terror attack in the United States since the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks.

  • Antioch Church burns before Sunday evening service

    50 YEARS AGO

    Thursday, July 14, 1966

    John E. Tracy, son of Mr. and Mrs. Leroy Tracy, returned home after receiving his discharge from the U.S. Air Force. Tracy spent four years in the service. He came home from the Vandenberg Air Force Base in California.

    Whew! The most talked about subject in Anderson County this week was the weather. It had been a scorcher with temperatures going to near record heights.

  • It’s 5 o’clock somewhere

    It’s the peak of summer. The countdown begins to the first day of back-to-school shopping. Parents are thrilled and kids want to stretch each day out to put off the inevitable.

    It’s been a busy summer for me and we didn’t get away to some exotic place or even Tennessee. I’m a band mom so in just a few days, my middle child and I will have our summer come to an abrupt end. That doesn’t mean I can’t try to imagine beach sunsets from my back deck. How? Through food and fabulous cocktails, of course.
