  • Enduring Faith

    "... their faith was strong and healthful and their attainment of Catholic truth unwavering."

    Those words were written in "The Life of Archbishop Spalding" in reference to the Catholic settlers who moved from Maryland to what is now central Kentucky and to their descendants. Evidence that that faith has not wavered was on display Sunday, when St. Charles Catholic Church celebrated its 225th anniversary.

  • DIY Fright Night

    People like being scared.

    Not all the time, but with certain safeguards in place, people enjoy a good startle.

    That's why roller coasters and horror films remain popular. They give us a chance to experience something spooky without any serious risk of real physical harm, assuming the rides are inspected and regularly maintained.

    With Halloween fast approaching, we'll see plenty of ghouls, ghosts and goblins roaming the streets.

    The 1st Amendment to the Constitution of the United States states that while Americans have the right to practice a religion of their choice, no government body has the right to establish a religion.

  • Trying to see a bigger picture

    Taking photos of tragic events is not something I enjoy nor is it something I take lightly. 

    At my first full-time newspaper job, one of the first accidents I covered involved a car that ran off the side of the road and flipped over. The parents, who were wearing seat belts, survived. The children, who were not belted, were thrown from the vehicle and killed.

  • Runner’s High

    I made an observation while working traffic control during The Bourbon Chase Friday night and watching thousands of runners jog to and through Marion County Friday and into the wee hours of Saturday morning.
