  • Grace Notes: God, Not even sick

    I was 11 years old when God died. The April 8, 1966 cover of Time magazine declared his death, or at least speculated by asking "Is God Dead?"

    I was too young to pay attention to the question. At 11, I only wanted to beat Paul Pechner in spelling. But it's a question that lots of people have been asking in one form or another throughout history. Maybe not, "Is he dead?" but "Is he relevant to my life?"

    We are, above all, supremely self-absorbed.

    Today, I looked up the 1966 Time cover story, "Toward a Hidden God," and read it. It could've been written in 2008.

  • Local cleanup week continues through Saturday

    October is Roadside PRIDE Month in southern and eastern Kentucky. With a team effort, communities can share the rewards of clean roads, satisfied tourists and even a trophy.

  • Buy a paper clover and support local 4-H youth

    The cashier at Southern States may ask you to part with an extra dollar this month. But don't worry, it's not inflation, it's for a good cause.

    Southern States is supporting local 4-H clubs by selling paper clovers for $1. The campaign takes place Oct. 5-19.

    "We are proud to partner with Southern States Cooperative and their customers during National 4-H Week and the week after. The 4-H clover promotion is a great opportunity to highlight 4-H in retail outlets while raising funds for local clubs," said Donald T. Floyd Jr., president and CEO of National 4-H Council.
