  • Lamb triplets earn prestigious piano honor

    Blair Lamb was at the Lucky Vista Motel, helping her group shoot a video for a project in one of her classes. Only her mind wasn’t on the project.

    She was waiting — waiting to hear if she had been accepted for the Governor’s School for the Arts program.

    So, with lighting and sound equipment all around her, she couldn’t help but sit there, staring at her phone as everyone else focused on getting their movie done.

    But she wasn’t alone in her misery.

  • Somebody's prayin'

    "Preacher," a church member said to me one Sunday, "I was driving in front of the church this morning, and I saw you standing by yourself up there at the top of the front steps. I knew what you were doing; I knew you were praying. And I just want you to know it made me feel better."

    It somehow makes us feel better knowing somebody's praying, though I can't explain exactly why.

    I've never been much of a country music fan, but I can listen to Ricky Skaggs sing,


    Somebody's Prayin,' over and over.
