  • A Healing Kind of Faith

    I recently watched an episode of “Our America with Lisa Ling” about a faith healing ministry in Fort Mill, S.C.

Two sisters came with their mother who had terminal cancer, as did Steve, a man in a wheelchair, paralyzed from the waist down.

  • Harvest yields good for Grant County in 2011

    Grant County has bucked the trend, at least this year when it comes to harvest yields.

    While the heat and dryness of the summer were hard on corn and soybeans, especially in central Kentucky, as well as many other parts of the nation, Grant County experienced a good year, especially for tobacco.

    “This crop was probably the best tobacco crop we’ve raised in at least five years,” said Chris Ammerman, Grant County Extension Agent for Agriculture.
