Why ART ?

Betty Bullen

Art makes our lives better. Art entertains us. Art heightens our self-awareness and our awareness of others. It helps us perceive complexity as pleasure and possibility not as irritating and uncertainty. Art records history and exemplifies past civilizations. Art has also been known to become a vice you can't let go of. I discovered this vice as a child and re-discovered it about 20-years ago doing decorative painting with acrylic paints and then falling in love with oil paints. Since then, I have been blessed to study with some of the finest artist in the United States.

Oh, Man!

I have been blessed with a wonderful family. I was born late in both my parents’ lives, so a great many of my relatives I only know about from stories as they died before I was born.

A Thorny Subject

Thorny Plant

My job as a forester was a blessing to allow me to get out and enjoy the beauty of our woods and fields and get paid for it. But there were plants out there that would suck some of the joy of being outside. I’m talking about plants that can make you bleed because of their thorns; things like blackberry, escaped rose bushes, and my worst nemesis: sawbriars. I’ve come off wildfires with literally every square inch of my legs scratched from these painful vines.

Chiropractic Treatments for Kyphosis

Chiropractic Treatments for Kyphosis

Kyphosis is the forward curvature or “hunch” of the upper spine that sometimes occurs in older adults. Your chiropractor may use a type of spinal manipulation—also called a spinal adjustment—to improve joint motion. Spinal manipulation is an active, hands-on treatment, and there are multiple variations of this technique.

Jesus Friend of Sinners

Archie Wilson

(As part of a series entitled “Out of the Fire and Into the Skillet”)
Luke 7:34
The Son of man is come eating and drinking; and ye say, Behold a gluttonous man, and a winebibber, a friend of publicans and sinners!

Hum! Jesus, friend of sinners. When I consider the events surrounding Luke 7:34, which would include the entirety of the Gospel accounts, I am forced to ask myself the following question:

Hopping Bunny Rabbit

Hopping Bunny Rabbit

Are you looking for something different to serve at your next get-togther? Something that doesn't require taking out a loan on the car to afford? This is such a recipe. Everybody likes cheese. Everybody likes toast. Here you have it, a good party dish.

Put the pot of rabbit on the kitchen table. Add a pile of small plates, some paper napkins and long handled forks. Back in my drinking days I would have added cold beers, but today with my Christian lifestyle, it's iced tea for me. Enjoy.

Arthur "Art" Bohanan Speaks at Union County Historical Society Meeting

A tombstone aged by the elements.

Union County Historical Society was privileged to host Mr. Arthur Bohanan and Mrs. Bohanan at its August meeting. Mr. Bohanan spoke about “Who are Humans and How Did We Get Here?” He is descended from the Sevier County Bohanans and has three books to his credit–two of which are historical fiction with a vivid imagination of how he portrays his great grandfather, Henry Bohanan’s, life back in the late 1700s. Art is, among other things, a forensic scientist. By age 18, he had graduated from high school and had gone to work for the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

County Officials Sworn In

Union County Mayor Jason Bailey

On Saturday, August 25, 2018, the Union County officials were sworn in before officially taken office on September 4th. Their friends and family, as well as the general public, filled the commons area at Union County High School to witness the ceremony. For some this ceremony marks a new chapter in their life and for others it is a continuing of their legacy and service to Union County and its citizens. All officers took an oath to uphold the Constitution of the State of Tennessee and the Constitution of the United States to the best of their ability with God's help.

Out of the Skillet and into the Fire

Archie Wilson

Matthew 12:31 King James Version (KJV)
“Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men.”

Far be it from me to write a controversial article about religion. Ha! Ha! That is the old-fashioned way of saying LOL! This is the beginning of a new series of articles which will be called: “Out of the Skillet and into the Fire.”

Chiropractic Care for Kyphosis

Chiropractic Care for Kyphosis

The classic sign of kyphosis is a rounded (hump-like) middle back. Chiropractic care is a nonsurgical treatment option for kyphosis. It can help treat pain, stiffness, and other kyphosis symptoms. Generally, the initial step in chiropractic treatment for kyphosis is to determine the cause of the abnormal middle back appearance.

It’s Happening All Around Us

It’s Happening All Around Us

With gigabit fiber internet slowly proliferating around the country because of municipal fiber projects, Google Fiber, startup ISPs, and new investment from incumbents spurred by grants and competition, America is quickly dividing into two additional segments, no longer is it those that have internet and those that do not, now we are seeing further divide between those that have fast internet and those who do not.

Eating the Word

Eating the Word

She showed up at our house the day before Christmas Eve. Tim and I brought the little bitty stray puppy inside. Not having any dog food, we warmed up a can of chicken noodle soup. Bless her little hungry heart; she started whining when she smelled it cooking. She ate until her sides pooched. That did it. We kept Pobby and our lives were never the same.

Of What is There to be Unafraid?

Mincey’s Musings

There are so many things that people fear! I never realized just how many until I conducted a Google search in preparation for this article.

I began a simple Google search (I’m “fearful” there is no such thing) to determine what is the greatest fear people have. I found one list of ten top fears, then immediately found a list of 100 fears, next a list of fears common to women. The unending, exhausting lists seem infinite. Amazing to me is that each and every fear seems to have a name.

Ninth Grade Psychology

Ninth Grade Psychology

Back in the 1980s I wanted to be a school teacher. That meant I needed a certain number of college credits. This was a problem as I saw it. I could have taken the college entrance exam without first completing my high school studies. But to get the best grades possible, I would need the background of those studies. I was rusty on how to write a term paper, for instance. I decided to complete high school first. That meant going to night school to earn the necessary credits.

Pondering the Milky Way

Milky Way

I hope each of you have had the opportunity to be in a really dark place on a clear night and caught a glimpse of a shimmering, sort of thin fog like band of light across the sky. This time of year it runs high overhead. It helps to let your eyes adjust to the dark before trying to see it, and any street lights or the moon ruin your chances.
