    Nelson Christian to have baby recognition service

  • My friend, Shelley, in Georgia has a friend who thinks I lied in one of my books, or at least that I made something up.

    Shelley, being a writer herself, knows that all writers (and most preachers) tell stories to illustrate truth. Sometimes the stories are their own; sometimes they belong to others.

    Even Jesus told stories. However, Shelley’s friend thinks if something’s printed on the page of a book every word should be the gospel truth.

  • I have learned to be discerning when it comes to catalog shopping. I steer clear of outrageous or cheap deals. I prefer the specialty catalog in which expertise reigns providing us with a good product and the information to grow it well.


    Notre Dame folk choir to be in concert

    The Folk Choir of Notre Dame University will present a concert of sacred music 6:30 p.m. Jan. 12 in the Abbey of Gethsemani church. The event is free and open to the public.

    Chamber of Commerce to have board retreat

  • Trim Down, Bardstown! for 2008 is going to be structured a bit differently than it has in previous years. Plans are still tentative, but it looks as though we’ll be offering Trim Down at our new Flaget Immediate Care Clinic at 110 S. Salem Drive, across from Buzick Lumber on KY 245 — a great location.

    The plan is to offer Trim Down one day a week, and to start it Thursday, Jan. 31. Participants would register and weigh in any time 11 a.m.-6 p.m. that day.

  • Some memos will be marked [Unpreviewed]. This means that I have not seen the film. Any information about the film content is taken from press releases, Web sites and other sources. The “Family Rating” is mainly taken from the Web site filmratings.com.

  • This is a true a story of the creature which is believed to inhabit one of the largest bays in Scotland as we’ll probably ever get.

    Just like Santa, the Easter Bunny, and the Tooth Fairy, hard evidence is hard to come by. But this makes for an enchanted fantasy of a lonely young boy who finds a very old egg. The legend of the water horse is part of the Celtic folklore, and we see the creature, not really a monster at the beginning, grow into maturity. Along the way, it helps the boy bring to the surface a sadness which he has not wanted to believe.

  • This movie starring Gerard Butler (“The 300”) and Hilary Swank tells a very romantic story, but with so many sweet, homey touches that you might gag before the end. I’m as much a romantic as the next person, and I don’t mind a good chick flick, but this one just might put a diabetic in danger of sugar shock. Also, there is not an element of surprise and absolutely no tension. It is however a lovely story that lets you see how love can find its way in the saddest of conditions.
