  • GUEST COLUMNIST: Don't cash that check

    With the worsening economy, an increasing number of Kentuckians are being victimized by fraudulent, unsolicited business offers commonly originating outside the United States.  County attorneys throughout Kentucky are reporting an upswing in this type of activity.  In one case, an elderly victim was defrauded of $1.1 million by a Canadian source before the scam was discovered and stopped.

    The most common of these scams begins with the receipt of an unsolicited cashiers’ check in the mail.

  • UK gets a nod in first season poll

    Postcards from the Edge.

    First Lady of Kentucky basketball is going back to college. Ashley Judd has enrolled at Harvard University and will pursue a master’s degree in public administration. The edge? When (not if) Judd earns her new degree, she can one-up NFL czar wanna-be Condoleezza Rice, come back to Kentucky and petition to become czar of UK’s athletic department.

    Stop laughing. Could be a marriage made in intercollegiate athletics heaven.

  • FROM THE WORD: Understanding Jesus’ parable

    Mark 4:2-8 – And he taught them many things by parables, and said unto them in his doctrine, Hearken; Behold, there went out a sower to sow: And it came to pass, as he sowed, some fell by the way side, and the fowls of the air came and devoured it up. And some fell on stony ground, where it had not much earth; and immediately it sprang up, because it had no depth of earth: But when the sun was up, it was scorched; and because it had no root, it withered away. And some fell among thorns, and the thorns grew up, and choked it, and it yielded no fruit.
