• Walking by the Spirit - John Edgell

    At my churches I’m preaching a mini-series on what it means to be sanctified and filled with the Holy Spirit. This is a compilated excerpt from this series, and I pray I do the topic justice in this limited format.

  • Progress needs long-term vision - Josh Switzer

    Last week, Casey County News reported on a public meeting of the Liberty Tourism and Convention Commission with the headline “Tourism disagrees on spending.” The article described events that transpired during the most recent Tourism Commission meeting, along with a significant amount of information that was shared by Mrs. Johnson outside of the public meeting through private email.

  • High-quality broadband internet is an essential service

    By Andy Beshear

    I’m fighting on behalf of every Kentuckian to protect our open internet and to keep broadband and wireless providers from slowing or blocking Kentuckians’ internet service.

    My fight includes an attempt to keep federal protections in place that are known as net neutrality. I recently joined other state attorneys general in asking a federal appeals court to vacate and reverse the 2017 rollback of these safeguards by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC).

  • When God says, “Stand up,” get up and move!

    By Jon Edgell

    Transition is inevitable. Transition is surprising. Transition can be awkward, uncomfortable, irritating, confusing, scary, painful, devastating, (fill in the blank). But, transition can also be a time of learning.

  • Water workers deserve praise

    You literally can’t live without water. You can’t wash your clothes, flush your toilet or shower without it.

    It seems like a given to go to the faucet and turn a knob for water, but we sometimes learn the hard way that nothing is a guarantee. When those things don’t work, it then doesn’t take long to realize just how much depends on simple things like running water. So, I think that the workers at The City of Liberty and the East Casey County Water District deserve praise for their hard work last week.

  • Which farmer to believe?

    If there’s one thing I understand, it’s winter conditions. I am a seasoned, 36-year veteran of dealing with blistering cold and deep snow.

    But just because I know about it, that doesn’t mean I like it. I don’t like it. In fact, it was one of the primary reasons I left Idaho.

  • East bound and down

    By Joberta Wells

    The last few weeks have been sad ones. First we lost Aretha Franklin on August 16 and then Senator John McCain died on August 25. Television was consumed with their deaths; discussions of their lives and accomplishments; their funerals, memorial services, and burials. Like so many other people, I was glued to the TV set for so many hours that I was tempted to buy stock in CNN.

  • The broad and narrow way

    By Jon Edgell

    “There are two ways to do things – the right way and the wrong way!” So went the mantra Dad would repeat over and over and over again as I was growing up. It was his favorite saying out of all his many sayings. Unappreciated at the time, this turned out to be a valuable life- lesson as I entered into my Christ-journey.

  • Nothing can keep us from God’s love
