  • GUEST COLUMN: Everyday faith, take it seriously

    Everyday faith sounds so simple. Just have faith every day, but what does that mean? For believers in Jesus Christ, it means taking our faith seriously every day. It means applying our faith to our everyday lives.

    On a recent mission trip with our church, I met some young people who stopped me in my tracks. They came up after a service was over just to talk for a few minutes. Over the next 30 minutes, I got a lesson in the reality of Christian living in the modern world.

  • LETTER: No conflict, says fire chief

    In response to the letter to the editor in last week’s paper, I would like to correct some of the statements made that I have a conflict of interest in seeking to serve on the city commission.

    First, Kentucky Revised Statute allows two firefighters to serve on a fire protection district board of trustees which are elected by the firefighters.

    No conflict.

  • LETTER: Islamophobia?

    This past weekend our country took time to remember one of the most horrific days in this country’s history.  On the morning of 9/11/2001 in a series of orchestrated suicide attacks committed by radical Muslims, 2,976 innocent lives perished.  Of the 2,976 who died, 236 were foreigners, which brings the total number of Americans who died to 2,740.  This year’s anniversary was largely overshadowed by two very charged international issues.

  • LETTER: Complete disregard for the people
  • GUEST COLUMNIST: Neighbors helping neighbors

    Have you ever asked a friend or neighbor to keep an eye on the house while you were gone for a few days?  Or, have you ever asked a neighbor to watch the house while you and the family went on vacation?

  • A MATTER OF OPINION: $21 million not enough?

    One citizen had it right when he called the district’s tactics at last Wednesday’s tax hearing a “shell game”.
