  • From a Mother's Heart

    From The Mountain

    Mark J. Tidwell

     

    The weather sure did take a turn for the better through parts of February.  I compared this year’s trends with my recollections from last February and found a sharp contrast.  Last February we stayed socked in with cloud cover and with snow on the ground for a considerable part of the month.

  • From a Mother's Heart

    Christians to be the light of Christ to the world

     

    Many times I have entered a restaurant in the evening and found the lights turned low. Barely able to see, I followed a waiter to a table nearly stumbling in the darkness as I fumbled for a chair to set down. The waiter brought a menu, and I squinted to read it. But the longer I sat there, the more clearly I could see around me. I became accustomed to the darkness.

  • On Higher Ground

    The Lord made man’s mouth and teaches him to speak

     

                “Then Moses said to the LORD, ‘O my Lord, I am not eloquent, neither before nor since You have spoken to Your servant; but I am slow of speech and slow of tongue.”

    The two-time District 3-AAA lineman of the year made if official Tuesday during a signing ceremony at CCHS. He will join former high school teammates Phillip and Stephen Wells and Troy Arnold, who have played for UC the past two seasons.

  • Williamson’s appeal dismissed

    After months of waiting for the Tennessee Court of Appeals to hand down a ruling in her case a local woman has an answer. But it is unlikely the one she was hoping for.
    In August 2010 Joann Williamson’s attorney David Pollard appeared before a panel of three justices to make his argument for having evidence gained by officers with the Campbell County Sheriff’s Department during a search suppressed. As a result of what Pollard contended was an improperly executed search Williamson pled guilty to manufacturing meth as well as child abuse.
