  • 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.

  • 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.

    Bible Believers Baptist

  • Years ago, I visited with a woman who sold biblical toys, action figures of Bible characters like Moses, David and Goliath and Jesus.
    The Jesus doll, about twice the size of a G.I. Joe, had movable fingers and joints and if you pressed a button on Jesus’ back he talked.
    As the woman demonstrated, Jesus started reciting Bible verses -- and wouldn’t stop.
    I was there to interview the woman for a newspaper story and tried to have a conversation with her but couldn’t concentrate because Jesus wouldn’t stop talking.
