Sled Hill by Timothy Tron is sure appropriate for this season!

Tim’s Treasures Sled Hill By Timothy W. Tron Burke County “The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.”-John 10:10 As a child, I never understood why standing on top of Sled Hill and overlooking the trees, rooftops, and steeples in the tiny town of New Harmony made me feel as if I were somewhere else; somewhere in another place and time. Life would eventually lead me on a journey, led by the Master’s hand, to mountain tops...

Chronicles on the Funny Farm this month gives us beans and watermelon for supper.

The Rest of the Story Farmer Doug I know that any of you that have worked in cornfield beans will understand how they can irritate your skin, that is what happened to Clint in this story and he was really shook up when he came in with the red whelks on his neck.  His comment was always, “Strong Like Bull” but he really was a pussy cat around many of the farm activities.  Many cases it really was the fear of the unknown in his world and very understandable.  In the second story, my cousin, Betsy Herrell, was always...

Did a loved one show up at your front door and surprise you?  Did you open a gift that you never expected to receive?  Did you get to take a trip you had always dreamed about? Christmas is about surprises, isn’t it? Rarely do we go around telling our loved ones what we are going to give them unless it is necessary for them to know so we don’t duplicate or misunderstand.  But those are usually exceptions to...

Bats By Christy Lowman sees bats in a positive way.

Christy’s Corner Bats By Christy Lowman Burke County By now, you have probably figured out that I love animals. I enjoy researching and learning fascinating facts about the creatures God has created! But today, I’m going to talk about a mammal I don’t like. Bats. I don’t like bats. Why you ask? Because they like to fly too close to my head! I cannot tell you the number of times that a bat touched my cheek or swooped within inches of my head! That’s why I do not like bats, but that is not fair to them. God made...
