  • Helping Food Pantry helps everyone

    "But just as you excel in everything - in faith, in speech, in knowledge, in complete earnestness and in your love for us[a] - see that you also excel in this grace of giving."

    -2 Corinthians 8:7

    There are many worthy causes in the community, but it would seem logical that the issue of children not having enough to eat should rank near the top of the list.

    If the Taylor County Food Pantry is just four weeks away from halting service due to a lack of funding, then it's obvious families in the community are going hungry - and it's going to do nothing but get worse.

  • Making History

    A few years ago, Sue Smith was having some work done on the High Street home she and her husband Willard share. When workers removed the fireplace mantel, they discovered a note that had been tucked between the mantel and the wall.

    "It said the mantel was built in 1926," Mrs. Smith said.

    She knew her home had been built some years ago, but, now, it seemed she had proof.

    Today, Smith knows the history of not only her home but several of her neighbors' homes as well.
