Ducks & Geese Take Off & Land Near Jerome HWY 165 -Videos

I love watching the geese and ducks at Jerome. From 1988 to 1993 when my husband preached at Parkdale, on our trips to and from, we would stop on side of highway at Jerome and watch. Beyond awesome.

Paving on I-69 Starting Soon

My dense mind cannot understand this. Where is there a 8.6 mile stretch of I-69 between Hwy 425 and Hwy 278?

Yes, you are correct. Joe Burgess

Monticello Nurses Resuscitate Collapsed Player at Watson Chapel

Nurses are special people. Thankfully they were there. Also, thankfully they had a defibrillator. I wish the Monticello Softball complex had one. The same thing could happen there. The player and his family are in my prayers.

Driver Identified in Friday’s Fatal Crash on HWY 278 East

Does anyone know how to go about approaching the Hwy Dept about this dangerous stretch of road? One would think that fixing the problem would be a high priority. Maybe Drew Countians need to start a petition.

Popular Tree Falls to Progress

Kind of sad to see it go. I remember it from high school in the 60’s.
Later I would sit in its shade while my kids took swimming lessons.

Hollering Highlights from Last Monday’s Meeting – Video -Approaching 1,700 Plays

I agree with Karon. If the population is equal between the city and county, what is wrong with everyone paying the same? Seems like that would be the most fair way.

Dozen Suspects Identified by Police in DCHS Vandalism – $5,000 Damages Estimated – RePost

I too feel the students should have to do some community service and reimburse the school for the damages. Also their diploma should be held until thier punishment has been complete. If it was my child I would make sure they paid the time for doing the crime.

Parks Committee Details History & Details of Babe Ruth League Issues

Maybe we should go by the old adage, “If you can’t say anything good, say nothing at all.” Oh, that would close the comment section, wouldn’t it?

I agree with “Parent”.
This has all been blown out of proportion. People are posting who don’t know anything about this situation. They are getting off on other gripes that don’t even apply to the subject at hand. Go do something constructive instead of griping and running people down.

Joe, is this really a picture of Monticello’s City Hall? Since I live in the out in the county, I don’t go in the City Hall. It just doesn’t look like I remember it. Just wondering.

Joe B. Yes.

Nix Found Guilty of Second Degree Murder- Sentenced to 45 Years

To All the readers, the word of The Lord is what it is. I do not have to defend the word and you cannot change God’s word. kelly Free, All have sinned, no one is immune therefore we have no right to judge!

SMH, Jesus’ famous reprimand for those who spend lots of time judging others, while ignoring their own faults . We certainly wouldn’t want to be judged in the same way we judge others (SMH)–so leave the judging to God, and focus on correcting your own weaknesses instead. Local Man, The more you read or hear you find more info coming out. We don’t know if Nix was the shooter or not.

Justlovinlife, It’s a natural human impulse to judge and criticize others, to note how they don’t measure up to our standards in one way or another. Unite together, but the Bible is clear about the role of judgment in our lives: we should focus on our judging eyes on ourselves and our own ample faults, rather than obsessing on the flaws of other people. Can “YOU” truly say who did what unless “YOU” were there? Yet, 2 people lives are destroyed and both families are shattered because of the end results.

Gib, cand we say, I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Finally, there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give to me on that Day, and not to me only but also to all who have loved His appearing. –2 Timothy 4:7-8
I, Kay says, “If any one of you is without sin, let him be the first to throw a stone.” With this simple phrase, Jesus silenced an angry crowd ready to execute a women caught in adultery. His words challenged them to judge themselves before judging others. John 8 1-11 NIV

Let us pray for the families and friends in Jesus’ name.

I am sorry that you feel that way, however, I interpreted what was stated. It is impossible to be perfect here on earth. I am delighted you got to know him for 5 years. Did you know Nix for five years or longer? I am sure the answer would be “NO.” How can you judge him on his kindness or lack of kindness if you didn’t know him? We all have faults. I am an outsider reading what is stated. To be fair to both sides you cannot say Nix is a bad person. What he allegedly did was a crime. As I have said we were NOT there we don’t know what happened. So my view is just as unimportant as yours. It is now left to 12 to judge. We are all entitled to a fair trial. Your opinion of me warrants nothing I am just stating the facts. Once the facts come out we might find out an entirely different dilemma. The end results are the same 2 families are NOW shattered. I pray for both families and all friends of the families. I am reminded of Proverbs 15-1 A soft answer turneth away wrath: but grievous words stir up anger. So I say to all the readers here be blessed in the Lord.

» Posted By KAY On March 16, 2011 @ 3:41 pm

Without a doubt Nix will not get a trail in Monticello. I am sure his lawyer knows there is no way he could get a fair trial there because of all the comments that has been given or expressed. We all have given judgment as thou we were there. A good man Katlin was from all that I have read and from most, he seems to be too good for HEAVEN. None is perfect but the LORD! It is refreshing to know that GOD is GOD and not US! Let him without SIN cast the first stone, CAN YOU? Not I, for I have sinned. And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world 1st John chapter 3. Be Blessed by GOD!

» Posted By KAY On March 15, 2011 @ 6:41 am

It seems most of us are judging. I am just fair with my judgement. Both men life was lost. I don’t know either man personally. But I am sure there is something good in Jamal. Yes, I will quote the word of GOD, because it is the WORD! No one can change it. It has to be more than what we have read, Nix just didn’t walk in and shoot because there are 7 days in a week. Something else happened. I never stated that “Katlin” wasn’t a good guy, he was not perfect, NONE PERFECT BUT THE LORD! We must make sure we are fair in our dealings because we would want the same treatment if it was us or our love ones. Nix have family also that I am sure loves him as much as Katlin family and friends do. Just be fair none of us know what happened. We are all very sad at the end. But we don’t want to make a judgement call and not know for sure if we are correct. So as I always do …For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.John 3 vs 17. I am Kay and I pray for each of you that you will stay blessed!

Can Jamal Nix get a fair trail? Jesus DID NOT!

» Posted By KAY On March 11, 2011 @ 1:14 pm

“Kat” was human and not GOD! He had some issues also or he wouldn’t have been in that envoriment. I am not making accusations. But when it is all said and done “Kat” will not be found to be perfect. I am sorry it ended this way. I pray for “Kat” family and you to heal. But we have a living soul “Jamal Nix” a young man, who has NOT grown up and doesn’t know how to solve problems. He is 19 and will be tried as an adult but really is he mature at 19. Think. Young BLACK MEN has always been miss understood. Check the PRISONS. Jamal also has a side of the story, have you heard it? I have NOT! Jamal sister had to tell him something about her getting beat or hit on. Think. Do you think Jamal just walked up and shot “Kat” because he was a black man or just because he was dating his sister? I am NOT taking sides with anyone. But to take another black man’s life will not change this concern. With US this is why PSALM 7 is important because it says Olord my God, in thee do I put my trust; save me from all them that persecute me and deliver me. Can’t you hear Jamal’s heart speaking. Its him NOW what about your brother or child or cousin or friend. Lets not judge. It’s PRAYER TIME!
