  • From saving souls to shearing locks, Willie Ailstock sees similarities in pastoring and barbering.
    “I’ve always felt this profession (barbering) is a service profession,” he said. “You are serving your community and you should do it with a smile because you are enjoying it because you want to do it not because you have to.”
    Ailstock, who is the minister at Oak Ridge Baptist Church in Williamstown, has opened his own barber shop next to Bruce’s Grocery in Mason.

  • It’s been hot and humid the last few weeks! I was hopeful that this summer was going to be idyllic…at least we got pop up rainstorms to keep things hydrated. These 90-degree days, however, are putting us on track for some serious heat and some of our vegetables will love it and some will not.  
    I know we can’t change the ambient air temperature on a 90 degree day but we can provide some shade for our plants on the hottest days of the summer with reasonable results.

  • The Captain John Lillard Chapter, NSDAR met at the Main Street Gardens recently to celebrate their 75th anniversary with regent, Robin Menefee presiding.

  • Charles and Betty Neal Lawrence will celebrate their 60th wedding anniversary on June 29, 2017.
    Charles and Betty were married by Buford Odor at Lystra Church of Christ in Mason.

    In observance of their anniversary, an open house will be held from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m. Sunday, July 2 at Jean La Beth’s (formerly known as Hogan House) in Dry Ridge.
    The party is being given by their family.

    Only your presence is requested, no gifts please.

    Charles and Betty have two children, Tena Webster and Troy Lawrence, both of Dry Ridge.

  • Years ago, I had a friend who was desperately trying to get a book published.
    Every time she sent her manuscript out to yet one more publisher, she’d get her hopes up.
    “This one could be the one,” she’d tell me.
    But it was never “the one,” and she continued to get her manuscript returned, albeit always with a kind rejection letter attached.
    She tried to stay positive, but with constant rejection, it began to tax her faith.

  • “If the word noble had to be applied to only one kind of tree, the honor would probably go to the Beech.”- James Crockett
    I must agree with Mr. Crockett’s sentiment.  The Beech remains one of my favorite trees.  They make great shade trees with a low canopy, often touching the ground.  Beeches are stately trees that can be easily identified in the fall because of their golden color; and in the winter because the leaves have a tendency to remain attached to the tree. The smooth, elephant-like bark of beeches is a plus in any season.

  • “Whoever dwells in the shelter of the most high will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, ‘He is my refuge and my fortress, my God in whom I trust.”
    I found an artist on the Etsy website who hand paints scripture verses, white lettering on rustic gray paper.
    Earlier this year, during a particularly rough time in our lives, my husband and I went to see a pastor, and at the end of our meeting, the pastor gave us a prescription: Read Psalm 91 together daily.
