  • LETTER: Should we trust?

    Are we to trust a man with our future, sewers or otherwise, who can’t recall what he has done in the last six months and can look straight into a camera and say so. (Wasn’t there something about a Co-ed escort service as well?) Trust?

    I recall a lot of stories about those grant applications being written by a lot of people and I wonder how many were written by those taking credit.

    I bet the current economy has been on a lot of peoples minds when they think about looking at unemployment.

  • Bears off to best start in 20 years

  • Kentucky basketball rises to No. 1 where it counts, Haiti

    Kentucky basketball climbed to the pinnacle this week.

    Polls. Associated Press, USA Today, Sagarin, pick a poll. Forget unbeaten Texas.

    Any poll without Kentucky at the top, goes begging for credibility.

    Here’s why. Last Sunday, UK’s coaches, players, former players, boosters, and local television, put 18-0 and adulations aside and raised more than a million dollars for Haiti relief.

    “It’s emotional,” John Calipari said. He’s right.

  • Main Street project could begin soon

    The city can finally move forward with renovating Main St. now that a funding contract has been signed with the state. Progress on the project’s second phase was delayed more than a year while the state attempted to pay for the project through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.

    “The economy shut it down,” said John Shircliffe, of the renovation project. “But you can’t blame the state for what it did.”

  • Cataloging invasive plant species

    Songlin Fei has spent two years delving into the backgrounds of nearly 80 of Kentucky’s invasive plant species, not to lay blame for their presence, but to gain a historical perspective that could provide answers for the future.

    “We’re seeing some very interesting things,” said Fei, assistant professor in the University of Kentucky Department of Forestry. “For instance, a species like bush honeysuckle – we had it in the 19th century. The earliest specimen in a Kentucky herbarium collection is from the 1860s.”

  • FAITH FOR TODAY: What if?

    I know that New Years day has passed, but every day is a new day, a new opportunity to re-imagine the future.  And it is always exciting to seek out God’s vision and plan for our lives and for His Church.  It is exciting to consider that even our greatest dreams are tiny compared to what God can really do.

  • IN THE WORD: Would we be afraid to uphold the name of Jesus?

    As we look at the book of Acts we see Paul on trial for being a Christian. The first hearing was before Felix and then before Festus. The way I read it neither one of these wanted to hear him and when Paul appealed his case to stand at the judgement of Caesars Court where King Agrippa would hear him, as we look at this hearing we see Paul had no lawyer but represented himself.
