  • Relay for Life Car Show

  • This community cares about others

    It's one thing to contribute time or money to a fundraiser. It's another to go without - just like the people you're trying to help.

    Nearly 70 students last week went without food for 30 hours. That's a long time - especially for growing teenagers.

    These teens were trying to raise money to help put a stop to world hunger. And raise money is just what they did - enough to feed more than 80 children for an entire year.

  • Federal appliance rebates going fast

    Those who intend to take advantage of the federal appliance rebate had better act fast.

    Just a week into the program, which began last Thursday, more than 60 percent of the $4 million allotted to Kentucky has been spent. The program continues until the funds are gone.

    And local businesses have benefited from the program's early success.

    "We've been overwhelmed," said William Johnson, one of the store managers at Coppock Appliance & Electronics. "For us, it's been a very good success."

  • Lowell Avenue Acteens

    The Acteens of Lowell Avenue Baptist Church attended the State Acteens Conference called EXALT at Georgetown College on Friday and Saturday, April 16-17.

    One of the guest speakers at the conference was jockey Pat Day. The group will return to Georgetown in the fall to help minister to the people who will be coming for the World Equestrian Games at the Kentucky Horse Park.


  • Everyone's 'opinion' is the right one


    1. a belief or judgment that rests on grounds insufficient to produce complete certainty.

    2. a personal view, attitude, or appraisal.

    In light of the word's official definition, it's astounding how many people are insisting that Teen Writer Emily Comb's opinion piece published on last week's News-Journal Insight page is wrong.

    I didn't know that opinions could be wrong.
