  • 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.

  • Every year in early June, we remember the anniversary of the Normandy invasion of World War II commonly called D-day. By the way, the “D” simply stands for whatever day a military assault is planned. For example; D-3 meant three days before a D-Day, while D+7 meant seven days after a D-Day.
    On June 6, 1944, America and her allies engaged in one of the most significant military operations of the 20th century. I have been personally touched by war and have a deep appreciation for the service and sacrifice that men and women give to protect our country.

  • A few weeks ago, we as Christians celebrated the most amazing weekend in the history of the world.
    The weekend Jesus Christ was crucified and arose from the dead. The sad part about this weekend is often times it’s the only time we think about the resurrection of Jesus, it is often the only time we think about the low point (for the followers of Jesus) of Friday and Saturday but also the high point of Sunday! It is often the only time many people read through the resurrection texts such as 1 Corinthians 15.

  • Annual and perennial vines can be a colorful answer to many landscape problems.  Do you have an unsightly wall, hate that chain-linked fence or mail box?  Or maybe you just have a spot that needs some summer color?  Perennial vines like clematis, honeysuckle and the non-blooming, deciduous Virginia creeper can add color and texture to any area were a climbing environment is offered.
