  • Revelation 21:1-7 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.

  • Induction into the Kentucky Journalism Hall of Fame was a humbling experience and so satisfying to know the honor came from my peers.

    As far as I know, I’m the only Spencer Countian to make it. Jim Russell wasn’t a native of Spencer County, but the Courier-Journal writer resided here and died at Little Mount.

    He was one of the finest people I have had the pleasure of knowing. I predict he will be voted into the Hall of Fame soon.
