  • COLUMN: Face, don’t escape, your trials

    The apostle James tells us in James 1:2 that we should “count it all joy” when we go through a trial. But, how can we do that?
    The key word is count. This was a financial term used by bookkeepers and means “to evaluate.” Christians are told to “count” our trials as occasions for joy. We can only do this when we know what God is doing in our trials.
    The 19th-century pastor, F. B. Meyer explained the valuable product of our trials in a way that, although dated, gets the point across:

  • Local farmer announces run for ag commissioner

    Longtime farmer and Kentucky Department of Agriculture (KDA) employee Stewart Gritton has announced his candidacy for Kentucky Agriculture Commissioner, he announced in a news release.

  • Life or death decision

    The family of a Mt. Eden woman brutally murdered here last September has made it clear: They want the man charged with killing her to be executed.

  • Cuts not enough to fix school district’s budget woes

    Projected cuts to next year’s Anderson County Schools general fund budget don’t seem to be enough to keep the district’s contingency fund from taking a significant hit.

  • Chili supper to benefit Fairgrounds

    Reopening Fairgrounds Drive-In will take more than a couple buckets of elbow grease to scrub away the damage done by a fire New Year’s Eve.

  • Murdered woman’s cats rescued following ‘malicious’ treatment

    The man suspected of murdering a Clay Burgin Road woman earlier this month may have boarded a half dozen of the woman’s cats in an outbuilding with no food or water before fleeing south.

  • Spinning real life lessons

    As I sat in the KFC Yum! Center Sunday night, I was in awe of my surroundings.

    And I am not talking about all the bells and whistles of Louisville’s downtown arena. It’s nice, no question, and has every toy an arena could want and then some. But, to someone who would be as happy in a Ford Escort as a Mercedes, it was far from the main story of the evening.

    Instead, there were chuckles. There were smiling children. And there were adults laughing uncontrollably at Big Easy Lofton, Bull Bullard and Firefly Fisher.
