  • Truitt: Please don’t take my easy bake oven

    I often say, even boastfully at times, that I don’t keep stuff. Years ago, I read a fantastic book called, Clutter’s Last Stand. It inspired me to regularly de-clutter my home, throwing away, giving away and donating things that are no longer needed. I love the satisfaction of knowing that I hauled away 16 garbage bags totaling 560 gallons of stuff, which means I have acquired 560 gallons worth of space in my home. But as much as I would like to think I’m on top of it, I was recently faced with the truth of my clutter.

  • Earley: Building others up

    A woman took her family reunion pictures to a photo lab to have them touched up a bit. While discussing the project the clerk said, “We can do amazing things with these photos. We can remove wrinkles and make you look 30 pounds lighter.”

    The woman responded, “You can? Can you put them on my sister?”

  • Earley: Why does God love us?

    Last week I wrote about how imperfect our human love is. Perhaps this most quoted scripture of the Bible is John 3:16, “For God so loved the world that He gave His only son, that whoever believes in Him will not perish, but have eternal life.” But why does God love us so much?

    Sometime this summer, almost everyone in this community will be in or near the water, and most people will have a safe and healthy time.

    Swimming and other water-related activities are excellent ways to get the physical activity needed for a healthy life. Just two and a half hours of swimming or water aerobics a week can provide basic fitness. Water-based physical activity also improves adults’ ability to carry out everyday activities.

  • Returning from a year down under

    Today’s the day! Our daughter Abby is returning from a year in Australia! I don’t think I’ve been this excited about an impending arrival since 1982, when my school was chosen to be Chattanooga’s official welcoming committee for Nancy Reagan.

  • Letters to the Editor June 19

    The 15th Arts on the Green was successful due to the hard work and effort of our Oldham community.

  • Obama’s war on coal devastating to Kentucky

    By U.S. Senator Mitch McConnell

    Kentuckians know by now that President Obama has declared a War on Coal. That’s clear from the 7,000 coal jobs that have been lost since 2009 when this president took office. Eastern Kentucky alone has already seen a three-percent loss in coal jobs in the first quarter of 2014.
