  • Helping the library

    By Molly McMasters
    Guest columnist

    The Friends of the Library (FOL) is a non-profit organization that exists only to support our local Marion County Public Library. Our group meets every other month (odd numbered months) on the second Thursday of the month at 5:15 p.m. in the small meeting room of the library.

  • State benefits from summer school programs

    Next month, Morehead State University will open what will be the state’s second specialty high school geared toward our best and brightest students.
    The Craft Academy for Excellence in Science and Mathematics will ultimately be home to 120 high school juniors and seniors from across the state, all of whom will have a chance to earn up to 60 college credit hours over a two-year period.

  • Celebrating workforce and economic development

    By Mo Miller

    The Lincoln Trail region has much to celebrate in workforce and economic development.
    Communities throughout our eight-county region are welcoming new employers and seeing existing employers expand. Businesses like Metalsa in Elizabethtown, Itsuwa in Bardstown, Karbec in Hodgenville and Hendrickson in both Elizabethtown and Lebanon have decided our region is the place to invest and create jobs.

  • Sinful man and God’s law

    By Alexander Campbell

    Editor’s note: The closing of this column may be considered graphic by some readers.

    I am writing in response to the article submitted by Carrie Mook Bridge. In reading this article many no doubt will see that she is a “minister” and take her word for granted. Yet just a cursory read of the Bible such as Jeremiah 28 will show that Hananiah claimed to have strong credentials as a “prophet” as well, yet he was by no means a prophet simply because he held that title.

  • Working to make a positive impact

  • Another view on human sexuality

    This week, you can read Alexander Campbell’s guest column in response to a piece that appeared last week (“Respect for One Another” http://goo.gl/0eY73e). If you read Campbell’s column (which can be read here http://goo.gl/qZgnOX), then you know he considers homosexuality both sinful and unhealthy.
    Personally, I disagree with about 95 percent of what Campbell wrote, but I support publishing it as I know there are others who share his views. I also want to try to explain why I have a different view of human sexuality than Campbell.

  • Protect yourself from identity theft

    As a crime, identity theft is anything but new. It dates back to biblical times, when Jacob pretended to be his brother to deceive their father, Isaac.
    The term itself was coined in the mid-1960s, but it found new life with the popular rise of the internet. Now, barely a month passes without news of another breach of personal information that often affects millions of Americans.

  • Respect for one another

    By Carrie Mook Bridgman

    Guest columnist

     

    This is where I’m going to make some people very happy and others very unhappy.  I will not call anyone names if you disagree with me.  I will let you know what I think about this ruling, but the point of this column is to think about how we can move forward from here, no matter our opinion of the ruling itself.

  • State’s drinking water still healthy

    About a week ago, state officials released the latest annual report on the quality of a resource we too often take for granted: our drinking water.
    In short, the news is good for those who rely on the treated water provided each and every day by our nearly 450 public utilities.

  • Supporting a culture of entrepreneurs

    As we work to fuel innovation, create jobs and drive our economy forward, it’s important that we take steps to encourage entrepreneurship.
    “All businesses once were start-ups founded by entrepreneurs,” noted Rick Johnson, program director for Kentucky Innovation Network at the Kentucky Science and Technology Corporation.
