f TIMES-NEWS, HARTFORD AND BEAVER DAM, KENTUCKY, APRIL 22, 2004, PAGE 8--A Continued from page 1-A The album was recorded on Nov. 9, 2003 at the Hart- ford Christian Church during the group's fourth birthday of its music ministry. Special equipment from Sunlite Studios was set up to capture the music and sounds of the concert that was re- corded in front of several hun- dred gospel music lovers. It features 16 songs -- 23 tracks in all -- that are mainly traditional gospel hymns. The lead guitar of Paul Moseley is one of the distinct features of the album. But the CD also contains six special performances of nationally known Curb Record artist Ronnie McDowell. With the backing of the Sacred Heart band, McDowell starts out with," Crying in the Chapel" and ends the album with a pow- erfial rendition of"How Great Thou Art." "When you take someone like Ronnie who is well thought of and a recognizable name, it goes along way," Dortch said. "Ronnie deft- nitely caps it off." At its first release party, the group promoted its first instrumental album of gospel hymns. It was entitled "Gospel i.: Classics," and contained 13 : instrumental songs. The songs ranged from "I Saw the Light," to the "Old Rugged Cross," Dortch said the release party houid lamt approx|- mately two hour and free snacks will be served. He added McDowell had a sched- uling conflict and won't be able to attend.

We observe things close to our own little existence and we get to thinking that all is well with the world. Grandchildren are a part of that scheme, especially when we factor in good and loving parents, giggly grandparents, and overall good health. Everybody's grandchildren are the pret- tiest and smartest. When you throw in the good health, you begin to think you're part of the ground- work for the near-perfect ex- tension of your family tree. Then that proud bubble develops a small leak and before you know it, all of the air temporarily leaves. Not only is your pride dented, your heart takes on a fierce aching. So it was last Monday morning when I returned home from the office to be greeted by a teary-eyed wife. "I've got some bad news," she said. "Your baby grand- son has got a heart condi- tion." My baby grandson is Christian Thomas Milem, a one-year-old scrapl r who doesn't do anything but charm your 8od affw|th a umile rfected only by the creator of all mankind. He was too busy working on his new-found ability to walk to pay any attention to some- thing gone awry in his small heart. By Dave McBride But something did go wrong and it produced some very anxious moments, some very wet and sincere tears, and a lot of praying. And an old pa- paw crawled up in a big stack of hurting and stayed there for the better part of three days. With no warning, Chris- tian Thomas' heart jumped out of timing and took offwith the speed -- so his morn said -- of a jack hammer. A quick trip to the Owensboro hospital and a later trip to a specialist in Louisville determined that the toddler has a heart elec- trical problem that hope- fully can be treated with medication. Christian doesn't yet know it but pa- paw also has a tricky ticker, only his is in the cardiac plumbing department. Life still is good and the family tree is developing some pretty strong roots. The doctors are reasonably sure Christian Thomas will live a long and healthy life and that's about as good as any proud papaw can hope for. One thing for sure. I was abruptly brought down to earth from that perch of pride and invincibility as far as my grandchildren are concerned. No, I hadn't placed them on a health pedestal that would render them attackless from the many bugaboos waiting around every corner.
