  • Two Campbellsville men were among 11 Kentucky Baptists who recently returned from an eight-day disaster relief mission trip to the Mosquitia region of Nicaragua.

    While in Nicaragua, team members helped rebuild homes devastated by Hurricane Felix, which happened on Sept. 4, 2007. The trip took place March 29-April 5 and was coordinated through the Kentucky Baptist Convention.

  • Last year, my granddaughter's best friend was 4-year-old Braden because he lived next door and had a trampoline. Braden liked Caroline because, at 5, she was someone other than his baby brother.

    Except for the occasional meltdown because one or both of them were tired, the friendship worked well. Then Braden moved away, Connor moved in, and Caroline has a new best friend.

    Why can't adult friendships be that easy?
