  • We harvested some fantastic looking “Red Candy Apple’ purple onions a few weeks ago and it is now time to start digging some ‘Yukon Gold’ potatoes and garlic over the weekend. I am so excited about the garden this year because it is performing so well!   We need to wait another week or so to harvest the ‘Sterling’ and ‘Walla Walla’ onions because tops have yet to flop over…. this allows them to store better. 

  • Jamie Baker of Dry Ridge and Jeff Nantz of Lexington are pleased to announce the engagement and forthcoming marriage of their daughter, Katherine Frances Nantz to Jonathon Zachery Waller of Tompkinsville, son of Jonathan Waller and the late Shanna Hoover.

    The wedding is planned for Sept. 23, 2017.

    The bride is a 2011 graduate of Williamstown High School. She is also a 2014 graduate of the University of Kentucky with a degree in communications.

  • After serving for two decades under three sheriff’s administrations, Fay Webster is heading into retirement to spend more time with her family, and hopefully travel the country.

    “She’s going to be a great loss. She’s been a great asset to our office,” said Sheriff Chuck Dills, who has worked with Webster since her first day at the office on May 1, 1997. “There’s been no turnover for 20 years with the deputy clerks, so this is the first time we’re replacing the position.”

  • Brian Melton joined St. Elizabeth Physicians Dry Ridge full-time at the end of Jan. 2017.
    Melton finished his nurse practitioner program at Northern Kentucky University in December 2016. Melton said it was an easy transition as his dad, Gary Melton, built the office 36 years ago and he spent a great deal of his childhood in the office.

  • The issue: Sin, the results? Search for escape from the reality of the sinful state of mankind.
    Our communities are being bombarded by Satan’s lies and deception, forever appealing to the desires of the “natural”, the fleshly desires to satisfy the soul-mind, emotion, and will. Satan, and the evil demonic spirits in this world continues as in the first murder when Cain murdered his brother Abel, in providing alternatives and escape of the truth of the necessity of Christ.

  • We gave up on the raspberries a couple of years ago, their fruit was so perishable and the plants lacked vigor.  
    We would cut the ‘Royalty’ raspberries all the way to the ground each year and forgo an early crop to manage disease but it didn’t seem to pay off.  It was never a total loss, but about half the canes would be dried up and diseased by now.    
    One problem that materialized is a condition called “doubles”, which is caused by a virus, as are most bramble troubles.  

  • One of the biggest differences that I see the more I am in ministry is that the American Church and the First Century Church pray for different things.
    I know that is not a shocker for most of us. Now some of the things we pray for are quite obviously not what God would have us pray for. For example, I remember watching someone buy a lottery ticket one day and turn around to pray over that ticket.
    Now that is clearly not something that we believe God is going to answer yes to right?
