  • Always believe in miracles. That is what all of us need to remember as we enter into another Christmas season. There is plenty of cynicism and skepticism to go around, but I say focus on the miracle that God became human in Jesus Christ and that miracle can give us hope no matter what situation we find ourselves in. I found an old story from Guidepost Magazine’s book Christmas Miracles, c. 2008. The story is edited, for this article, but the full version can be found on the internet. It always brings a tear of joy to my eyes.

  • Five generations of women, Margaret Hayden, Vicki Stephens, Amie Norton and Ava Norton celebrate the matriarch of the family, Anna Wills’ 100th birthday at The Richwood in November.

    Peggy Edmonson always knew she was adopted. Her parents never kept anything a secret from her. Just because it wasn’t secret, though, didn’t mean it wasn’t a mystery.

    Edmonson, a La Grange resident, was always curious about the story behind her birth in France in June 1950. Where was her mother? And did she have any siblings?

  • One local organization is hoping for a big Christmas gift this holiday season: 10 acres of land.

    The Humane Society of Oldham County, an independent no-kill shelter not affiliated with any other Humane Society groups, is hoping for the land to open a new community center, adoption location and spay/neuter clinic, the volunteers who run the organization said.

  • A Crestwood native is hoping his hometown support can help him hit it big in Nashville.

    Chase Skinner, a graduate of Oldham County High School, has spent the last few years as a musician playing in Oldham County and the Louisville area.

    But he’s recently put his foot in the door of the Nashville music scene, landing gigs on the city’s famed Broadway strip of bars.

    It’s meant hundreds of miles on the car, but it’s been worth it for Skinner, he said.

    When Thomas Adams was just six weeks old, he was diagnosed with Hydrocephalus, otherwise known as Water Head Syndrome.

    The condition seemingly went away, but a few years ago, at 27-years-old, Adams’ seizures and other complications came back in full force.

    After several procedures and various therapy sessions, Adams was on the road to recovery. It was during this time that Adams became involved with the Fred Astaire Dance Studio and using ballroom dance as a form of therapy for his condition.

  • Over the last two weeks I have shared some basic information about why I think the Bible is a reliable and authoritative word from God. The following story illustrates vividly that God uses His word to change lives. The following is taken from a letter written by Mils and Sandy Becker in 1995.
