  • COLUMN: Reports that we are dying are greatly exaggerated

    Back in 1897, James Ross Clemens was ill. Not-so-careful passing on of information resulted in word that Samuel Langhorne Clemens, better known by his pen name of Mark Twain, was dying in London. When an enterprising reporter decided to check on Twain before publishing his demise, the author responded, “The report of my death was greatly exaggerated.”

  • LETTER: More safety measures needed at Spencer County Schools

    I write this letter trying to understand the situation at Spencer County Middle School.

  • COLUMN: Follow this year’s legislative action

    As I write to you, we’ve just completed the first week of the 2013 General Assembly Session. We’ll take a break for three weeks for everyone from newly-elected members, newly-elected leaders as well as committee chairs to get settled in. We’ll reconvene Feb. 5 for the remaining 26 days of session.

  • LETTER: The last word

    Shelby Tyler Smith always had to have the last word in any conversation that he was involved in.  He was a compassionate, caring, loving young man whose whole entire life revolved around serving the Lord.
    He touched the lives and hearts of many and we will miss him very much until the day we are reunited with him in the kingdom of heaven.  If Shelby could have one conversation with the people that he had never met, I believe with all my heart that it would start with one question, “Have you asked Jesus Christ into your heart?”

    Most of the news today is about going over the cliff. If our President and Congress would take a look at where America is at today with God, they would see that we have already fallen over the cliff and hit hard on the bottom.

  • COLUMN: 2013 legislative session overview

    Hello and happy New Year. As we start the New Year, so starts a new session in Frankfort. The 2013 session of the Kentucky General Assembly is 30 days long and is known as the “short” session. During the first week, both caucuses are traditionally busy choosing their respective leaders and making committee assignments.

  • COLUMN: I’d rather be safe than sorry

    Monday night I left the office well after dark and headed home just like I do every week day. But Monday was different because I ended up doing something I had never done before — I called in what I thought could have been an impaired driver.
    The driver didn’t cut me off and wasn’t weaving violently between the lines, but several things – including the vehicle’s slow drift into the median and slow drift over the right-hand line, speeds 15 miles below the limit and braking while driving under a clearly green light – caught my attention.
