  • COLUMN: Witch hazels already in bloom

    Gardeners get anxious this time of the year.  Warm one day, cold the next, the sun coaxes open a little patch of crocus by the path or we catch sight of an old landscape filled with waves of blooming white snow drops.  This year the show is sure to come early and the forsythia are not the first to bloom, despite this oft cited sign of spring! There are other early bloomers to keep us occupied until spring truly arrives.

  • One way: Jesus is the only avenue for this life

    You may not know this, but I grew up in Baltimore Maryland.  At that time the Colts still played in Baltimore and the Orioles used to occasionally win a World Series.  Then, I ended up in Southern California for a while, about the time a fellow called Magic Johnson started playing for the Lakers.

  • COLUMN: Be a ‘good samaritan’ to someone you meet

    Luke 10:25-37 says, “And behold a certain lawyer stood up, and tempted him saying ‘Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?’ He said unto him, ‘What is written in the law? Have readest thou?’ And he answering said, ‘thou shalt love the Lord they God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbor as thyself.’

  • ONLINE-ONLY COLUMN: Kentucky’s Senate, a week in review

    We have reached the halfway point of the 2012 General Assembly Session. There are daily committee meetings, policy briefings, visits from constituents, and meetings with various advocacy groups.
    Senate Bill 103 passed the Senate last Tuesday with bipartisan support. It would add an ultrasound image to the informed consent process currently required before an abortion is performed. This measure is an effort to make sure women seeking abortions have as much information as possible, and my hope is that this will help women reconsider this life altering decision.
