  • Last November someone wrote me a letter - no return address, no signature. I've been holding on to it all year, reading it every so often.

    It's a heartbreaking letter and I hadn't known how to respond to it. I'm not sure I do now, but I feel compelled to tell this woman's story. Maybe by sharing it, the letter writer will find some peace or happiness or whatever it is that she needs most.

  • The Campbellsville University Opera Workshop will present "Gianni Schicchi" on Nov. 17-19.

  • Thanksgiving is about being thankful - and giving. And one local church spends the Thanksgiving holiday doing both.

    For many years now, Bethel First Presbyterian Church has hosted a traditional Thanksgiving dinner for the community. And many volunteers from all over the community come together to help.

    The dinner is free. It is for those in need, for those who are alone, or for those who would just like to enjoy Thanksgiving dinner with others.

    The traditional meal will be served in the church's fellowship hall from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Thanksgiving day.

    Most people are drawn to the tiny Pacific island of Guam for the warm weather, pristine coral reefs and lush tropical flora. Japanese honeymooners flock there, and this U.S. territory is closer to Japan, the Philippines and Australia than to its closest American neighbor, Hawaii.

    Because of its location in the western Pacific and west of the international dateline, it's the first place on American soil to see the sun rise each morning.
