This summer marked the 40th anniversary of the Dedication of the Dickenson-Bundy Log House. A crowd gathered to see the newly moved building and the restored Courthouse. The Dickenson-Bundy Log House is now a venue for local handcrafts, and the Old Courthouse has been furnished with examples of antiques from both the 19th and 20th centuries. The King Boardwine House, donated by Zan and Lynda Stuart, shows a sim- pler way of life as a tenant on the Stuart farm. It also holds two working looms and a quilting frame. Next door is our Church-School House. This log building combines the Old Reed's Valley Primitive Baptist Church and the Bundy Schoolhouse for the Bundy farm on Highway 71. It is furnished as an old-lash- ioned school with antique desks, writing slates, old books, and science and social studies centers. It is often ruled over by "The Schoolmarm" in period costume. In celebration of our 40th anniversary, the Historical Society invites you to an Anniversary Celebration.

I remember my first _ radio program, I had never been inside a studio at a radio station, but I felt the ~leadership as a young 0 Christian, to do a radio pro- gram. The announcer told me "When that yellow light comes on, you're on the air. When it goes off, ~your program is over. I'll flicker the light a haft of a '" minute before time for you to go off." Well, I'd liked to be scared to death. However, two gentlemen that was just finishing their program was still in the station, and I asked them to ' sing a song. From there, I did my first radio program. Me and my children sung together: They were my first band. A few weeks later, ! had taken them with ! , me to sing on the radio pro- ' gram that I called "The , Program of Faith." I used I ,-that name for many years on many different radio stations. However, on this particular Sunday moming, the children and I were in the radio station waiting for the light to come on that told me I was on the air when some old mean drunk walked up the stairs and found his way into the con- trol room and jerked out a pocket knife. He said, "What are you doing here?" I replied, "I have a radio program." And with bad language and curse words, he said, "If there's any preaching done on this sta- tion today, I'll be the man that does it," and opened that big knife. Well, about that time, the light came on, and the children and I just started singing the first song that I had ever written, "What Side of This River Are You Going To Live On." That was my theme song that I used for many years. The drunk closed his knife, put it back in his pocket and staggered back down the stairs. ~When the program was over, he was standing on the other end of town coming toward Kentucky. I told the disc jockey and he apologized for that man's behavior and that he wasn't in the radio station while the program was going on. Some folks that heard about it said, "why didn't you try to get a name or something and take this man with a warrant?" I was just glad that my head was still on my shoulders and that the Bible says, "Vengeance is mine and I will repay; saith the Lord." I just pray to God that this poor man got his life Straightened out and gave his heart to God before fac- ing judgment. If not, the Bible said, "whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap." And if he didn't 'get that taken care of, he will have to face that before the judgment seat of Christ. The Bible said, "Be' sure your sin will find you out." And "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God." So would you please send your sins on before you so you don't have to face them at the white throne of judgment? I hope so.
