  • Quiet Minds yoga studio opens in Lawrenceburg

    Yoga requires discipline and practice, especially when attempting the scorpion pose.
    Even Quiet Minds Yoga owner and yoga instructor Harmonie Field said it’s one of the more difficult poses she’s done, describing how to lean on forearms and lift the body up so feet dangle right above the head.
    But yoga isn’t competitive, Field said, so there’s no such thing as a perfect pose.
    “Yoga is better defined as a discipline, something you would practice every day,” she said.

  • Stratton places third at Montgomery’s steakhouse

    The boy sure can sing, and proved it last week.
    Jarrod Stratton, a 2002 graduate of Anderson County High School and proud native of Tyrone, placed third in a karaoke contest last week at Eddie Montgomery’s steakhouse in Mercer County, surviving cut after cut in the competition before finally falling just short of his goal in the finals.
    But don’t think for a moment that finishing third is the end of his ambitious road.

  • Lightning in Monday storm was ‘just bam, bam, bam’

    The storm that rocked Lawrenceburg on Monday did a fair amount of damage, including setting a home on Walker Lane ablaze.
    The fire, which apparently damaged the home’s roofline, was caused by a direct lightning strike, a police officer at the scene said. He said that a City of Lawrenceburg employee saw the home get struck, and called the fire department.
    The fire rekindled Tuesday afternoon, drawing a second response from firefighters.
    The storm also blew over a tree on East Broadway, blocking the street next to Col. Bob Thompson’s home.

  • Opinion on mega churches is God’s, not man’s

    Two weeks ago I wrote a column encouraging readers to ponder how Christians locally and nationally spend a vast amount of the churches resources on buildings that are not prescribed in the New Testament.
    I furthermore pointed out the church is however commanded to spread the gospel and care for the poor.

  • Don’t forget to save this year’s seeds for next

    Well, tomorrow brings the end of the Dog Days of August and as far as I know, no one melted.
    The dogs toughed it out by exploring the creek, regularly. Spanky couldn’t care less whether it’s hot or cold, as long as she’s outside. Tiller is all about just keeping an eye on me and finding shade wherever we go. Now, if I could just get them to drag the hoses around for me.

  • The land of misfit moments

    She seemed at ease with her cage, the barbed wire and tall fences surrounding the women’s prison.
    I felt relaxed, too.
    Maybe I should have been more nervous, sitting across from a convicted first-degree murderer.
    On that crisp November day, however, I was more worried about my frozen fingertips, hanging onto that scribbling pencil for dear life.
    It’s hard to translate someone’s life story burning in your ears when your numb hands refuse to cooperate.
