Treasure

Amy Beth Brake (1982 – 2014)

The man who finds a wife finds a treasure and receives favor from the Lord. – Prov 18:22 (NLT)

But this precious treasure—this light and power that now shine within us—is held in perishable containers, that is, in our weak bodies. So everyone can see that our glorious power is from God and is not our own. –2 Cor 4:7 (NLT)

Store your treasures in heaven, where they will never become moth-eaten or rusty and where they will be safe from thieves. 21Wherever your treasure is, there your heart and thoughts will also be. –Matt 6:20-21 (NLT)

Time Lapse of a Storm Through Hopkinsville

I’ve been slacking off on posting here, but this video is cool enough to post it before I go to work. According to the description it was taken at New Work Fellowship church in Hoptown.

One Of Our Number

Correction: T’Marcus actually isn’t the person that I thought he was when I wrote this post. I looked through all of my yearbooks and couldn’t find him in high school. I thought I was crazy until I went further back and looked in my middle school yearbooks. I finally found him at HMS but he didn’t follow me to Hopkinsville High. He must have moved to County, instead. It is strange that I remember him after all these years.

Hopkinsville Police are looking for a suspect believed to be the man responsible for a murder on East 17th Street Sunday afternoon.

Lieutenant Michael Felts says police are looking for 28-year old T’Marcus Hall, who is a black male standing about 6-5 and weighing around 280 pounds. Hall allegedly stabbed a woman identified as Autumn Rollins multiple times, with her body found at 208 East 17th, Apartment 2 just after 5pm. Police say Hall is the father of the victim’s child.

Hall is believed to be in a 2006 Dodge Charger with Kentucky tags 060 LLM. Officers believe Bell [sic] has fled the city, but do not know to where. Anyone knowing Hall’s whereabouts should call 911 immediately.

Human Behavior Changes When Gas Hits Four Dollars

NOBAMA 2012
NOBAMA 2012

I buy gas every two weeks like clockwork. This week’s experience was very different from any other week. I typically buy gas early on a Saturday morning right after I leave the grocery store. The Kroger gas station I fill up at has 8 pumps available and if there are one or two people already at the pump it’s no big deal. It was very different today, two pumps were broken leaving only six available. Every pump was busy with at least one other person waiting behind them. I tried again that afternoon after lunch with the same result. Every pump was busy… I did eventually fill up at a nearby Shell station that wasn’t quite as busy. When I got up Sunday morning there were already two people waiting at a gas station near my house even though it wasn’t going to open for another 30 minutes!

Does this story mean that every gas pump in Hopkinsville was busy all day yesterday? No. I didn’t visit every gas station to know that but I do know what I feel when gas is difficult to buy. There is just a hint of desperation in the air.

VOTE FOR NOBAMA IN 2012!

I didn’t misspell the blog title and this post isn’t about the movie starring Macaulay Culkin. “Driving Alone” stars a cranky elderly man lost between two lakes. Watch him struggle to find his way back to I-24! Will he make it out of the Twilight Zone or be LOST IN KANTUCKY FOREVER!

Coming to a Box Office near you.

Eggner’s Ferry: Everybody Was Running Back And Forth

WKDZ did a great job covering the bridge hit and collapse of the Eggner’s Ferry bridge. Of all the coverage they did I want to highlight one interview. It is a classic that will live forever in the genre of country-fried disaster interviews.

 MP3: Robert Parker Interview – (C) WKDZ Radio

WKDZ: Did you get out of the vehicle after this happened and look down there?

RP: Yes.

WKDZ: Did you yell at anyone on the boat? Did anyone yell at you?

RP: Nuh Uh, everybody was running back and forth.

WKDZ: Did any of them know you were up there?

RP: I don’t know that they did or not.

Everybody was running back and forth, I’ll bet they were!
