  • “Conscience is the most sacred of all property,” said our fourth president James Madison. This proposition by the architect of the U.S. Constitution was cast aside by Federal District Judge David Bunning and dismissed by a Lexington Herald-Leader editorial which recently called for Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis to “do her job or resign.” Such dictates leave many wondering whether there’s any room in the public square for citizens committed to doing their jobs according to their conscience.

  • The other day I was at a restaurant and a family came in with a little girl. They sat in a booth across from me and I had a great time watching that little girl and her parents. She must have been 4 or 5 and was into everything, but in the right kind of way.

  • What is happiness? Do you feel happy in this world today? There are many definitions of happiness. Here’s what a few popular people said about happiness:

    Charles Schultz said happiness is a warm puppy.
    Another person was quoted as saying, “Happiness is nothing more than good health and a bad memory”
