  • For the repentant, no sin is too great for God’s love

    I have always been amazed at John’s explanation and description of Jesus in the opening verses of John’s gospel. Chapter I:1-4: “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things came into being through Him, and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being. In Him was life, and the life was the Light of men. The light shines in the darkness and the darkness did not comprehend it.”

  • Favorite player taught life lesson being one of the best

    It was back in 1964 when I fell in love with baseball.

    It always has been, probably always will be my favorite sport.

    When I discovered the “Game of the Week,” announcers Dizzy Dean and his podnuh Pee Wee Reese, I also learned that the team closest to my Anderson County home, the Cincinnati Reds, had a guy suiting up with the coolest name I had ever heard.

    Vada Pinson.

    The man could hit and do so with power. He could steal bases and when roaming center field, he seemed to just glide to the ball.

  • New net coach looks to hang banners

    As he stops practice to point out some errors in how his Anderson County volleyball team is doing things, new coach Ryan Brown displays the patience of knowing he's dealing with high school girls, but also the drive that indicates he has high expectations for the Lady Bearcats.

    “I push my girls every single day,” says Brown, who is in the first year of his first head coaching job. “I demand perfection. I know no one is perfect but if you practice perfect, you play perfect. I am really tough on the girls and challenge them every day.”
