  • Relay for Life kick off is Jan. 21

    Millions of people have joined the fight against cancer. Many have done so by participating in Relay For Life, the American Cancer Society's team event to fight cancer.

    The event will return to Taylor County on June 6-7. A kick off planned for Monday, Jan. 21 will officially get the new Relay season under way.

  • Marginal living

    I have a confession to make. I am a suburban, middle-class, middle-aged white woman. I don't have a tattoo or an amazing story to tell. I'm not athletic or heroic or musical or artistic. I've never been a missionary to Africa or even Cincinnati.

    I had begun to think that maybe being who I am was not cool and not OK. But thanks to a woman named Kimberly, I realized that who I am, an average woman who needs Jesus and whose ministry is primarily to other average women, is OK - more than OK.
