Life Is Like a Box of Crayons.     Forrest Gump said, “Life is like a box of chocolates.” I beg to differ. There is nothing more symbolic than a box of crayons for the start of a new school year. I remember when I was a child the thrill of a pack of crayons, usually in the eight or 16 pack size....
  After a vacation and some time away, it’s time for The Clinton Chronicle Editorial Board to reassemble, and hand out some Summertime Congrats. So, here goes: Congratulations are in order for District 56 on a very successful renovation of Wilder Stadium. There will be an unveiling ribbon-cutting...
  Successful living involves risk-taking. Over 300 people rejected Colonel Sanders’ special recipe for Southern fried chicken before he received a “yes.” Today, because of his persistence, KFC boasts 20,000 restaurants in 125 countries.  Reflecting on my youth, I wish the idea of taking calculated...
  Remember as a kid that thrill you got when you found an Easter egg. I’ve got that feeling again. My family and I are now geocachers.   Geocaching (noun, jee•ow•ka•shuhng): the recreation activity of hunting for and finding hidden objects by means of GPS coordinates posted on a website.   I first...

  I’m so proud of my daughter I can hardly stand it. Our third born, Mary Elizabeth MacDonald, stopped the other day to treat the wounds of a person injured in a car wreck. It was on Hwy 76 near Metal Masters, and she was the first first-responder on the scene. I am getting this word second-hand,...
  A few months ago, the federal debt we have accumulated over the past decades crossed the $22 trillion mark. That’s a record. And it’s surely not going to be the last. According to Congressional Budget Office estimates, annual federal deficits over the next decade — the deficit is the annual...
  I spent last week in Cuba. Fascinating place. We’ve been visiting our nearest southern neighbors for 15 years, a partnership of churches established by a relationship between the Alliance of Baptists and the Fraternity of Baptist Churches in Cuba. Members of our church take an annual trip to...
  Like all CHAMPS students, Katelyn Norris began the program when she was in the sixth grade. She was at Hickory Tavern Middle School then.  “This is something for me,” she remembers thinking. “This sounds local and ‘homey.’ “And CHAMPS’ values really attracted me to the program.” Norris liked the...
  “Dare to risk public criticism,” said Mary Kay Ash. She should know. A successful businesswoman who broke many molds and took many risks, I’m sure she endured her share of critics. I remember as a young pastor receiving an anonymous letter full of complaints about me and my wife. Most pastors...
