  • For those of you waiting for outstanding films to play locally, this is one. The first positive and entertaining thing you will note about “Juno” is the sharp dialog. It’s not often that teenagers are portrayed as being so witty. The same goes for the parents. This is not a story of alienation, with parents pitted against their children. Oh, there is hesitation at first when Juno MacGuff must tell her parents that she is pregnant at barely 16. But they all get over it, while kind insults are being hurled from one side to the other.

    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.

  • 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.
