Life is full of transitions and advancements. We know this to be true, and these updates and changes in the world around us tend to happen in a way that feels gradual yet exponential at the same time.

As we look back on years gone by, and really think about the rapid advancement of technology and everything else, it is staggering to think where

Our lives are filled with minutes ticking by, calendar pages being turned, appointments being scheduled, bells ringing to signal the end of the school day. We experience rhythm and ritual in everyday happenings, shock as unexpected events occur in our lives, joy as laughter fills the air after a funny situation happens. Our lives are filled with a myriad of experiences. The Bible says that “for everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven…” in the third chapter of the book of Ecclesiastes.

Frankfort Fire builds apartment for safety education

Dave Mosier caulked the top edge of living room windowpane, as a wood panel was hitched in through the front door. After little more than a day, construction of the one-bedroom flat was almost complete, minus a bathtub, furniture and clean paint job.
