  • Western pulls a stunner over No. 3 Louisville

    As ugly, but important as Kentucky wins over Kansas State and West Virginia were, Western Kentucky’s stunner against No. 3 Louisville was handsome in patience, smarts, efficiency and toughness. Signature win for coach Ken McDonald and brag-rights feather-in-the-cap for the Hilltoppers.

    More, WKU’s win is a reminder for those struck with fat-head disease, and reduces the perceived distance between No. 3s and 2s in America and the ‘beam-us-up-Scotty,’ types in Sagarin ‘others’ compilations.

  • FROM THE CAPITOL: Time to begin working across party lines

    To many people, it must have been a remarkable picture.

    After months of bitter campaigning, President-elect Barack Obama sat next to Sen. John McCain for a meeting a few days ago. They talked at length about how they could reach across party lines to discuss – and move forward on – some of the nation’s most challenging issues.

    If they can do this on a national level, why can’t we do it in Kentucky?

  • A MATTER OF OPINION: It’s a family tradition

    Isn’t this the most wonderful time of the year?

    I simply love the Christmas season. The lights. The music. The smell of Chex Mix baking in the oven.

    Yes, you read that right. Not gingerbread or sugar cookies, but Chex Mix. It’s a tradition in my family that at the first hint of a wintry breeze, someone’s making a trip to the store for couple of cereal boxes and some Worcestershire sauce.

  • From the Word: Jesus will see us through

     In my ministry through the years, I have heard so many flimsy excuses about not telling people about Jesus Christ. 

  • Christmas Home Tour this Saturday

    Saturday’s forecast promises a wintry mix and some down-right chilly temperatures. Some might say that is perfect weather for a car ride together visiting the warm hospitality of the Christmas Home Tour.

    Beginning at 3 p.m., four homeowners will open their doors and welcome in folks seeking a little comfort from the cold and some down-home holiday cheer. Along the way, visitors might just pick up a decorating idea or two.

    For Elk Creek resident Kim Davis, she hopes that some of those touring her home will leave tidbits of their own behind.
