What happens when making an elderly Amish couple very happy means going along with a lie that gets bigger by the day? Michelle Taylor is not who her new family in Lancaster County believes her to be.

The Lapps were looking or their long-lost granddaughter when they met Michelle , and she assumed the identity of Sara Murray. Once homeless and hopeless, Michelle has come to love her new Amish friends and even considers the idea of romance among them.

Finding an old blue jar in the barn that is filled with slips of paper containing thoughts, quotes, and prayers by an unknown author becomes a boost to Michelle’s budding faith-- but also convicting.

Buncombe: Texoma Southern Baptist Church Host to ‘Valentine Banquet’

Well, this is my first posting for area news! Karen Wooten has taken the lead on this for 25 years. She is now able to go travel a bit and enjoy some of the sights, and it is definitely a long time coming!

The Buncombe Creek Neighborhood Association wants to thank everyone who has donated so far. The response has been wonderful! They plan on getting another picnic table, as well as some buoys to signify people swimming in a specific area. And, hopefully, some more smaller-size gravel to help with the potholes.

We lost two very special people as of late. Joseph “Jay” Adams died on Jan. 25. He had been a well-respected doctor in Kingston for many years, leaving his wonderful wife, Bridget, and many dear friends. He was a big supporter of Homeward Bound, now called Oklahoma Spay Clinic.
