  • Twenty-five years ago, a 15-year-old girl stood at a hospital nursery window and told her baby son goodbye, with hopes and dreams for his future that she would be unable to give him, and believing that their separation on this earth would be forever.
    “The first time I saw you through a window, I said goodbye, and hoped you would understand, and hoped my dreams for your future would come true.”

  • Fall festival Oct. 24 at Liberty Christian

    Liberty Christian Church in rural Brownstown will hold its annual fall festival on Sunday, Oct. 24, at 5 p.m. in the church pavilion.

    The event, planned by the youth team, will offer something for the entire family – a bonfire, hayrides, music and a devotion time.

    Participants are asked to bring lawn chairs, hot dogs and buns for their family, soda and the ingredients for making s’mores.

    Hot chocolate, coffee and hot cider will be provided.
