  • Clyde Oliver is hanging up his scissors and shears after 50 years of cutting hair.
    That’s a lot of swept-up hair.
    Entering Clyde’s Barber Shop on Paris Street in downtown Williamstown is like being transported into a different era.
    Clyde mans the only barber’s chair in the shop and the focus is less on getting in and out and more on chatting with good friends.

  • 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.

  • Per a recent survey performed by NBC, 70 percent of Americans say the government is not working well. My question is will we rely on for true change for our nation? Roughly 100 years or so ago most the communities we live in relied upon the local church congregation for most their needs both physically and spiritually.
    The local church was the focal point of the communities and cities where people would first seek a good Bible believing and preaching church to live nearby and then would find employment to provide for the family needs.

  • Last Sunday I felt like I was under siege!  There were starlings everywhere; so much so that I feared being splattered with poop at every turn.  The surprising thing about starlings is that they are everywhere yet not from here.  It’s another story of one good intention going bad. Apparently back in 1890, in honor of a Shakespeare festival in New York City’s Central Park, sixty European starlings were released.  The following year another 40 were released and today the bird is one of the most numerous species in North America.  

  • Since 1997, Williamstown Baptist Church members have prepared and delivered approximately 6,000 Thanksgiving Day meals to needy families in Grant County.
    On Thanksgiving Day, Judy Ruholl, a church member, will help feed hundreds of people again this year.

  • Have you ever wondered what makes an orchid an orchid?  Well, it is all about flower parts.  In fact, most plants are categorized in the Plant Kingdom by their flowers.  For orchids, it is the fact that they have three sepals and three petals.  Many flowers have green sepals that protect the flower inside which cradles the bloom as it opens.  

  • Harold Elliston was honored on Nov. 10, at a luncheon meeting of KSP Post 6, at the Williamstown Baptist Church for his years of service to the Kentucky State Police.

    He was also an officer for the City of Dry Ridge for more than four years.

    Kentucky KSP Commissioner and Post 6 Commander Rick Saint-Blancard presented Elliston with a certificate of recognition and a Superman T-shirt.

    Many of his former colleagues stood and shared what Elliston’s mentorship meant to them personally.

  • Kevin Richardson has gotten confirmation through prayer, God’s word and other Christians that he is exactly where God wants him, right now—at Dry Ridge Baptist Church.

  • Paul, the writer of 1 Corinthians, says in verse 31 “But earnestly desire the higher gifts. And I will show you a still more excellent way.” Now the question that we as the church have to answer is what are the higher gifts or greater gifts? The only way to do this is to look at the surrounding context of chapters 12 and 13.
