Good Thinking: Baccalaureate

by Dr. Don Keuhle

In ancient France, the foot soldiers in the army were called “bas chevaliers”, or in the common vernacular “bacheliers.” Once these men had been tested in battle, they received the honored title of “baccalarius,” One who had struggled in battle and had emerged victorious. Later, this term would be used in the academic world.

The “baccalaurius” would be one who had struggled, been tested, and deemed

Mothers – Chosen of God

by Pastor Steve Ellison

 Perhaps you have heard this tale. A young mother of three wrote the following thank you note. “Many thanks for the play pen. It is being used every day from 2 to 3 pm. I get in it to read and the children can’t get near me.”

Every mother understands that. The complete lack of private time places a high premium on it. Motherhood is an

Capitol Report: The legislative ‘harvest’ approaches

by State. Rep. J. Eggleston

The farmer plants in the spring, the crop grows in the summer, and the farmer harvests in the fall. These are the stages of the reaping of a crop. Similarly, there are stages in the legislative process as an idea germinates in filing, sprouts through the committee and debate process, and then in maturity grows into law.

With only one week remaining in session, we

Poosey Digest: Plumbing the depths

by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

It’s a bad habit but I’m stuck with it. Whenever I’m eating out my ears start scanning the room to pick up conversations at other tables. Call it nosy if you like, I prefer to be labeled as an astute observer of mankind. Besides, it gives me an excuse not to talk to Herb.

Last week we were dining in nice little joint

History doesn’t have to be “oldy, moldy” of at least a century or so ago.

Spike_WPThere are efforts underway to dream up some productive way to revitalize the cupola/grocery store building on the northeast corner of the Gallatin square.  These days private business does not exactly latch onto vacant buildings with problems, no matter how good the location.

It is premature to settle on any course of action which will determine the future of one of Gallatin’s landmarks. It is likely, however, to become a

The main thing

by Pastor Steve Ellison

 We seem to have forgotten to keep the main thing in focus.  It seems to me that the most important command we have been given is found in Matthew 28:18-20 “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth.  Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit,

From the Bench

Circuit Judge R. Brent Elliott’s “From the Bench” is a series of articles designed to provide the public with a better understanding of the judicial system. The 43rd Judicial Circuit consists of five counties; Caldwell, Clinton, Daviess, DeKalb, and Livingston.

Last month Judge Daren Adkins (Daviess County) discussed how and why the 43rd Circuit created the Drug Treatment and Employment Court (DTEC). In this article he will focus on

Capitol Report: Tears in committee

by State Rep. J. Eggleston

Nothing was more serious this week past than the discussion on SJR39, the bill that addressed religious freedoms versus gay rights in the debate over whether the government can compel clergy and small business owners to participate in gay weddings. As you have probably heard by now, SJR39 failed to make it out of the Emerging Issues committee in the House. That 12-person committee had

The Shepherd Calls: Like Mother, Like Daughter

ShepherdCalls_WPby Dr. H. Wade Paris

It was late in 1954 when I first met the young lady who would become the mother of my children. There was nothing particularly unusual about that visioning. I was in the choir of our church, and she was sitting in the congregation a few rows back. Since I was a new member, it was likely the first time I had ever seen her. I
